My self-summary
So how does one sum up ones self without 90% of the world losing interest in the first 20 words? I'm an engineer by trade (BS from Georgia Tech and MS from Florida) and yes, I do have my anti-social geeky engineering moments. I've previously worked in semiconductor manufacturing and am changing gears to something that I can actually use what I learned in college. Really what I do isn't so much important as that I'm happy doing it and see direction in life, which I am.

In my spare time I'm an avid baseball fan (fanatic might be a more appropriate word), a runner (still trying to get back in shape for 5 and 10ks), a golfer (poorly) and a skiier. Besides that I'm into basketball (college, not pro), movies, composing and listening to music, fish, tinkering with stuff (the maintenance guys love me at the apartment), and taking random road trips with the windows down and the iPod cranked up.

I'm originally from Michigan but have lived in Tennessee, Georgia, Florida and Arizona as well. I'm extremely happy that I've moved back east since I'm now closer to where I grew up and I'm closer to my family as well.

I am intelligent, extraintroverted, and fun-loving
What I’m doing with my life
I live in Lexington but commute about an hour to work every day since I just couldn't bring myself to move out of the city. I just bought a house in town so im out of the apartment life (finally). My job has me traveling quite a bit which I'm really looking forward to since it will be a totally new experience for me. Who doesn't like sleeping for 14 hours on a plane in a comfortable seat?
I’m really good at
I'm apparently getting to be a very good cook according to my friends. My specialty is milkshakes...not like the Micky D's style, I'm talking the side of the road place that they use milk and a blender.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes...almost to a person I hear "you have really cool eyes".

Six things I could never do without
1) My friends - they've supported me through everything
2) My family - I learned the hard way what happens when you go for "personal fortune and glory" and gained a huge appreciation for my family in the process
3) My i(whatever) - I guess I'm an apple fanboy now but really, something to have music playing either while working, working out, in the car, or relaxing at home.
4) The Internet - I keep up with stuff from everywhere I've lived so there's a lot of news and people to connect with there
5) My Health - 4 years of freak injuries will make you thankful for being healthy
6) My Job - Seriously, I always thought about what I'd do if I won the lottery and I just can't see myself not having a job of some kind. I really do like what I do even if I complain about it...but who doesn't complain about some aspect of their job.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What tomorrow is going to bring...and it's rather exciting.

That and how the media has influenced how we view things - everything from politics, to news, to sports and even music is driven by the media now. It seems like the real "artists" can't get anywhere since the radio plays what the record companies and sponsors of American Idol want us to hear.
On a typical Friday night I am
Typically it starts off with happy hour with the non-work friends somewhere. From three it all depends how the week has gone for me: might be out for more fun or it might be back to my place for a night of napping on the couch and catching up on sleep.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Now that wouldn't be private if I admitted it here, would it?
You should message me if
You're someone who is capable of independence. I really hate those relationships where the guy makes all the decisions. Everyone has an opinion so express it.

A big plus for me is a woman who does not need to be in a relationship with anyone but wants to be in one. Independence is a turn-on.

I hate to draw an educational line in the sand so I won't but please have a career/job/vocation/hobby/something. If you live with your parents and, we're probably not going to work.
(Side note: I really sympathize with those who do have to live with parents because they are unemployed and have college degrees - I had to do it and it was not fun at me, it gets better.)
