My self-summary
I strive for balance.

- Between work and play: Career is important. You should generally enjoy anything you do for 40+ hours a week! And there's nothing inherently wrong with wanting to get ahead. But I'm a firm believer in "working to live" and not "living to work". Life is what happens once you leave the office.

- Between optimism and realism: Be hopeful. Work to make the world a better place. Accept that things won't always work out the way you want them. Embrace those difficulties and turn them to your advantage whenever possible. Get as much enjoyment as you can out of every opportunity.

- Between personal and social: My weeknights are generally quiet, consisting of a bike ride, a book, a board or card game, or Netflix. On the other hand, I'm the most likely among my friends to organize a night out or a weekend away. Drinks on the town, tailgating a Brewers game, screaming our lungs out at Great America, huddling around a campfire up north...
What I’m doing with my life
Moved to Madison about 3 1/2 years ago, after almost two decades in Milwaukee. Still haven't discovered much of the city. I'd love to meet someone to help me explore, preferably on bike.
I’m really good at
I'm fascinated with technology. There's usually one gadget or another within my reach. I'm the guy everyone else brings their toys to when they stop working. When the robots take over, I'm certain I'll be on the right side. Let's just hope they don't punish us for using the internet to distribute bad K-pop and cat memes (I'm looking at you, Reddit).
The first things people usually notice about me
Unfortunately, my keen intellect and rapier wit aren't always discernible from a distance. So I'll go with height. There just aren't a lot of us 6'6" men walking around.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm an unapologetic fan of science fiction. I read books like Snow Crash, Neuromancer, Daemon, Nexus, and the Foundation series.

In a perfect world, Firefly was never cancelled. Until network executives come to their senses, The Expanse, Westworld, Game of Thrones, Archer, It's Always Sunny, and The Crown are great substitutes.

My musical tastes trend towards EDM these days, though you'll also catch me singing along to rock & pop from the 80s on.
Six things I could never do without
1. Google. I'll be the first in line when they offer to connect our brains directly to the internet.
2. Family (awwww)
3. Curiosity
4. My bike
5. Corrective lenses
6. Bacon
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Buying/building a house. I think I've outgrown apartment life; it would be nice to have a little more space for activities.

My next big trip. Did a lot of domestic travelling for work this year, but it's time to visit somewhere new/faraway. I've always been drawn to Southeast Asia. Or back to Europe?
On a typical Friday night I am
I'd like to go skiing once or twice this winter, and I hear Badgers hockey games are a great time. Other than that, I'm trying to avoid the bar scene while I drop a bunch of weight. It's going really well so far!

During the summer, I'm likely in Milwaukee at a Brewers game, playing with my nieces & nephews, or hanging out in my hammock. Would also love to find a sand volleyball league.
You should message me if
I'm looking for a partner who shares at least some of the same traits and interests. Someone well-educated and compassionate. A woman who enjoys city life, but isn't afraid to get dirty or sleep under the stars. Honest, open, and patient. Adventurous.

If you voted for Trump, Walker, or Johnson, move on.
The two of us
