My self-summary
I am a geeky dork who is nice and crazy, but all in a good way. All that just makes life more interesting and fun I say!

I've gotten to a point in my life where I'm happy but would really like to find someone to share my happiness with. I have solid family oriented goals and a good background, job, and house to help back those goals up.

I think I have a lot to offer someone, not just in fun things to do, but as a true partner in life. Creative expression and communication (along with respect) are super important to me and I like to think they help in many ways with how I interact with a friend or partner.

In all, I am extremely passionate about everything in my life and those I surround myself with. I strive to support those whom I name friend with tremendous effort, as well as seek understanding of those who differ from me on a daily basis. I firmly believe in supporting one another in everything we decide to do/feel, and if we don't support each other, to strive for greater understanding and acceptance in general. I passionately believe that knowledge is fantastic as long as there is good communication there as well.

Family is important to me and I would love to have screaming kids running around more than I already get with my job. Teaching them good values and raising them in the best way possible works better with two people than alone.

Another dream of mine is to travel more and seeing special places all over the world with someone else so that we can share all the great memories that we produce.

There are dozens of dreams and ideas beyond these things too. Everything is better shared with another but having someone who understands that relationships take work is also important. It really takes two to have a relationship and I am ready to do whatever is necessary to have that happen.
What I’m doing with my life
My job has me working at a middle school in Salem teaching Mathematics to kids from 7th grade through 8th grade. Otherwise I am doing improvements on my house in south Salem, hanging with my friends, or the usual other things people all over find themselves doing.
I’m really good at
Listening, reading, holding a tune, telling stories, and teaching Math. I have also been told by a lot of people at work that I'm fantastic at organization and problem solving. Recently I was also told I'm very good at eye contact. To top all of that off, I think the thing I'm best at is that when I put my mind to something which I really believe in, I give it my all and it shows in how extremely passionate I become about that topic.
The first things people usually notice about me
I hope it is my eyes (they rock) but I am not sure in all honesty. Some of my co-workers have told me they noticed that I tend to laugh at lots of things lots of the time. So that could definitely be it!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
(A: Books) A few favorite authors include Card, L.E.Modesitt Jr (That's the top fav), Terry Goodkind, Stackpole, Timothy Zahn, Zelzany, Heinlein, L.Ron Hubbard, John Dalmas, Lisanne Norman, Terry Brooks, Simon R. Green, McCaffrey, Frank Herbert, and the list goes on and on and on. Want to compare favorite books or authors? Fun!



(B: Movies) I love all kinds of movies! Find myself watching and owning more action than anything else but I love anything from Comedy to cheezy Horror to even chick-flicks (and own some of those too!).



(C: Music) I listen to a whole bunch of different types of music. In truth almost every genre but I tend to listen to very little country and rap.



(D: Food) If the food has tomatoes, cheese, and bread involved I love it! Hence pizza is one of my favorite foods and often Italian food has that stuff too.



(E: Television) limited to Netflix, no cable TV here

The six things I could never do without
In no particular order: love, laughter, family, books, tomatoes, my imagination (Ever see this one on someone else's profile before?)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm always looking for more fun activities. Do you have any suggestions?

I've also been thinking about dating more, going back to school for a PHD.
On a typical Friday night I am
Could be almost anything listed above or not even listed above. Really depends on what my friends are doing and such.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I feel guilty if I catch myself forgetting to use my turn signal.


I have an insatiable thirst for knowledge. In the past it has occasionally gotten me in trouble too. Oh no major trouble but little things like being so engrossed in learning about something that I forget to go to sleep have happened quite a few times to me.

You should message me if
If you:
**are happy in your life but want a deeper relationship with someone.
**want a family of your own one of these days.
**like people who are passionate about the things they do.
**want a geeky partner in crime to do things with and get to know. (IE: you like geeks or are a geek can go far too)
**like people who truly believe in respect when dealing with others.
**are willing to help put effort into a relationship and not expect someone else to do everything (it really takes two)

I STRONGLY encourage you to write me for just about any reason under the sun, it is always nice to meet new people. With that in mind, anything above that seems set in stone is always subject to change depending upon the person, their personality, and the situation we find ourselves in. I think a lot of my answers to questions and quizzes on this site have changed over the years too so I'm not necessarily looking for someone who has a perfect match with me. Differences can give people room to grow and become better people.
