My self-summary
I'm smart, fun and friendly, with just the right amount of nerdiness to keep things interesting.

I've been described as both charming and adorable, one could say I'm charmdorable even.

I'm a careered professional who has his financial house in order.

In addition, I like many things including:
- going for walks and chatting
- meeting up for coffee or the occasional adult beverage
- dining out
- cooking, I can make an awesome stew or grill a ribeye to a perfect medium rare
- visiting museums
- riding bikes
- attending the Renaissance Festival (whether in costume or not)
- sipping a glass of Pinot Noir in front of the fireplace on a chilly evening
- and much much more...

I'm looking for a friend, a peer, a companion, a date, a partner, and yes, a lover too. All of that adds up to a pretty awesome girlfriend.

I do enjoy reading your answers to the questions, not just the predefined list of answers, but especially your commentary. Sometimes it's witty, or thought-provoking, or just plain entertaining.
What I’m doing with my life
In summer, I like to get outside for walks, outdoor concerts, and definitely dining Al Fresco! Few things beat a cold beer on a patio on a bright sunny day!

I like to attend outdoor concerts! They can be a lot of fun!

In the winter I tend to be house bound, but I do get out to play Broomball when I can.

For work, I program mobile devices, iPhones, Androids, etc.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at my work, but that can be very dry to talk about, (anyone care to discuss, object orientation, asynchronous programming or recursion? See what I mean?)

I'm also good at Words with Friends. Are you willing to take me on? :-)

Woodturning is one of my hobbies, I make bowls, goblets and some pretty awesome drop spindles, and I know how to use them.
The first things people usually notice about me
Generally, my eyes and shoulders, and sense of humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: I like upbeat music like Reel Big Fish, Less Than Jake, The Fratellis, and the Dickies. And occasionally some heavier stuff like Dragonforce or Blind Guardian.

Always a fan of 80's music! Go Gos, Waitresses, Def Leppard, Foriegner....the list goes on

Not a fan of Dave Matthew's Band. To me, he is one of the most talented and creative musicians that leaves me completely uninspired and feeling meh when I hear him sing. But if you like him, I won't judge, might tease you a bit, but I won't judge. ;-)

Books: Lord of the Rings; anything by Patricia McKillip; A Song of Fire and Ice (a.k.a. Game of Thrones); that sort of thing.

Movies: I like most action adventure movies, Marvel in particular, and most anything by Pixar and Studio Ghibli.

Not a fan of the horror genres but if it's important, I can sit through a chick flick without too much complaining. ;-)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next play in Words

Maybe I should actually read "To Kill a Mockingbird" as it routinely appears in people's favorite books lists.
On a typical Friday night I am
On weeks when I don't have my youngest kid, I'll go for walks, catch some Netflix...though I'd rather be cooking burgers on a grill to enjoy on the patio front of the fire pit.

Or I could be out sipping a Scotch at Merlin's Rest.

Care to join me?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I saw the Pixar movie "Brave" by myself...and enjoyed it.

And I'll sometimes dance around the kitchen listening to Fratellis while doing dishes...
You should message me if
You should message me:
- if you can laugh and have fun doing almost anything
- if you'd like to meet up for coffee or an adult beverage
- if you want to challenge me at Words
- if you just plain feel like it. why the heck not!
The two of us
