My self-summary
I’m an engineer and work for the government. . .my work is challenging and interesting but does not provide me with my “identity”; my relationships and activities outside of work largely determine “who I am.” I am a reserved person who can nevertheless be quietly intense and passionate about certain things although this is often not immediately apparent to people when they first meet me. I am usually a very logical, practical, and prudent person with virtually everything that I do in life, but I also appreciate and enjoy certain types of music and other art.
What I’m doing with my life
I enjoy spending my free time in a variety of volunteer/community activities. I especially enjoy being part of the Civil Air Patrol. I’m a pilot and find flying in small airplanes to be both stimulating and relaxing. It’s especially exhilarating to take part in a search and rescue or disaster relief mission as it gives me a sense of fulfillment to serve my community and know that I’m doing something that may be assisting or relieving the suffering of others.
I’m really good at
Most people who know me well would say I’m reliable, dependable, hard-working, organized, goal/task-oriented, and always try to do the “right thing” both at work and outside of work. I think many would regard me as charitable both with my money and time and always thinking of ways to help others.

I also enjoy making humorous or whimsical quips about various things that I see at work or elsewhere and generating a near unlimited supply of puns and other word plays that often require specific technical knowledge in order to be perceived as “funny.” Now, I assume that I’m "really good at this" and people aren’t just being polite when they laugh at my puns at work. . .
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a very quiet, introspective, and serious demeanor when I first meet someone. It takes me a long time to “open up” and feel comfortable talking freely with a person that I’ve just met, especially a potential romantic partner.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Allen Guelzo’s “Abraham Lincoln: Redeemer President”, David McCullough’s “John Adams” and “Truman”, and virtually any book by Thomas Sowell. I occasionally read books by a variety of authors on Christian theology and the interaction/interplay between science and faith. Sometimes I will read techno-thriller novels by Tom Clancy. My favorite movies include Gladiator, Das Boot, and Amadeus. I enjoy classical music and Mozart is definitely my favorite composer. I like eating spicy/tasty foods in general with curry dishes being some of my favorite cuisine although there are other food types that I enjoy too.
Six things I could never do without
A good night’s rest, caffeine during work days, lots of interesting books to read, functioning sodium/potassium pumps in all my cells, meaning to my life, and oxidative phosphorylation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I am very task oriented and therefore much I spend much time thinking about how to solve the next project or challenge that I am dealing with at work or how to run a series of errands in the evenings and weekends in the most efficient way possible. I also think about a variety of random topics from time to time ranging from current events either locally or in other parts of the world, the most recent book that I read, a humorous conversation or event that I witnessed at work, a particular composition that I have played on the piano or heard performed somewhere else, and of course, women.
On a typical Friday night I am
Catching up on e-mails, exercising, and reading interesting books.
You should message me if
. . .you are single, have no children, and you’re seeking a potentially long-term relationship. Yes, I’m aware that most dating relationships do not end up lasting a lifetime, but it’s a reasonable goal to shoot for, and if we simply end up being good friends, that’s ok too. Since I’m a quiet guy, it would probably be helpful if you were somewhat extroverted or at least not particularly introverted.
You should not contact me if you are looking for a trendy person who is really into discussing “pop culture”, the latest fashion trends, fads, etc. I’m simply not interested in those things.
The two of us
