My self-summary
I'm a single guy with no kids. I'm an engineer by training but interested in entrepreneurship and real estate.

Work has been my focus for a long time but I found that to be a hollow pursuit. I still have hopes to do great things career-wise, but I am really missing a significant other in my life.

For the past few months I have put my life on hold to help take care of a family member with cancer. It has been a deeply emotional yet rewarding period of my life. To be with someone on their journey from this life and to be with them as they transform into something beyond our world has been a life-altering experience for me as well.

I worked for about 15 years in aerospace which I loved, but decided that I wanted to take some risks and change it up a bit. I took a job in the mining industry that allowed me to move to Cajun country in south Louisiana.

Right now I split my time between Houston and Acadiana. I change my location based on where I am and how I'm feeling. My life seems like an open book right now and I'm willing to write it in a way that makes it compatible for the right person. I hope to hear back from you if you are interested in talking!!
What I’m doing with my life
Doing volunteer work, consulting part time and still working my day job

Learning a new musical instrument--the Cajun accordion. I can play a waltz or two and a few Cajun two-steps.

I always have projects that I work on here at home. I'm also formulating some ideas about starting my own business.

I work for and actively donate to the following charities throughout the year: Global Medical Relief Fund, Charity:Water, NARAL, NPR, and Planned Parenthood of the Gulf Coast
I’m really good at
I'm really good at cooking! I love to cook, especially french cuisine. I'm always willing to learn how to cook new foods! I hope that doesn't make me sound too uppety. Believe me, I'm not a food snob! My favorite food in the world is a PB&J sandwich!
The first things people usually notice about me
My height. I'm 6'1"
My Texas accent... most tell me its "cute" (that's their word, not mine)
After that, probably my big brown eyes. :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Let's start what I'm not into: reality television, sit-coms, and talk shows.

Charlie Rose, C-Span Q&A, Dr. Who are all things I'll watch. I love NPR on the radio

I have a huge collection of books and I love to read. My favorite books are: 1.) Any book being read by a naked woman in my bed. 2.) Nerdy books on electronics, electronics design, or the art of radio. 3.) Political histories (non-fiction)

Favorite food? Cajun food, bar-b-q, and beans & rice (any kind of beans are good!). Those are my favorites, but I don't eat them all the time. Right now I'm eating lean proteins mostly, but I love carbs ;-)
Six things I could never do without
1. Carbs!
2. Exercise
3. Books (see favorite books section above)
4. Music
5. Dancing
6. Naps
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How much I miss Molly Ivins.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm the weird guy who loves cats. No apologies. (I have no pets)
