My self-summary
I am looking to meet new friends, but I'm also definitely open to a relationship with the right person. I have a 16 year old dog that I love like a child and I am a seasoned traveler with a great job. I also travel between Tucson and Olympia when I can. So if you live in Oly or the surrounding area, feel free to hit me up. :)

I am also an avid homebrewer and winemaker. I love fermenting pretty much anything (even food...sauerkraut, kimchi, etc).

I'm the Brewmaster at a homebrewing supply company. As head of research and development there, I design the recipes that are sold to homebrew suppliers and customers around the world. I also help develop new products. It's a career that I love and am very passionate about.

I also dabble in cheesemaking. And it wouldn't be unusual to find me combining hobbies, too....such as hop infused chèvre or porter cheddar (YUM!). Plus, if you make wine, you've gotta have cheese, too, right? lol.

I also love riding and racing bikes, especially BMX (yes, this is still a thing, even at my age). When I'm not biking, hiking, or camping, I also like to play video games.

Not really into sports other than BMX racing, but bowling is pretty fun, especially with friends and beer. :D

As mentioned, my dog is like a child to me. She is the single most important person in my life. Unfortunately, she's very old and doesn't have long left on this planet so I just keep her as happy and as comfortable as possible while she's still here.

I have some tattoos, but plan on getting more. No piercings, though I've had them before.
What I’m doing with my life
Brewmaster at a beer company. Making wine and beer. Teaching people how to make wine and beer. Playing music. Gaming. Camping. Hiking. Riding my bike. Staying happy. :D
I’m really good at
Making beer, wine, cheese, traveling, adventure of all kinds. I'm pretty good at the mandolin, but I still need lots of practice. I can also play the didgeridoo pretty well. Racing BMX.
The first things people usually notice about me
It used to be my dreadlocks, but I chopped 'em off. Now it's probably the scar on my head that makes me look like Harry Potter...lol. Or my eyes, I've been told. Or my dog. Everyone always notices her first. lol.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Anything intelligent or funny. (Though I can't stand sitcoms.)

I don't really watch TV. But I like Walking Dead, Falling Skies, Doctor Who, and a few other sci-fi shows (I watch them online).

Huge fan of The Daily Show. While Trevor Noah is doing fine job, I will always miss Jon Stewart. :'(

I like Sci-fi movies and TV shows mostly, but I also like many comedies and a few dramas.

I like anything post-apocalyptic. Big fan of Mad Max, old and new.

Too many books to list, but my latest book was "Ready Player One", by Ernest Cline. Great book! It's being adapted into a movie by Steven Spielberg. :)

I like punk, bluegrass, and metal. I like a lot of different stuff though.

As far as food goes, I am an opportunivore. I'll eat what tastes good, but in moderation, of course. :)
The six things I could never do without
My dog (though I know I will have to someday...)
My BMX
Yeast
My mandolin
Good beer
My friends/family.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Travel. Music. Friends that have passed. New beer and wine recipes. Science. Riding/racing my bike.
On a typical Friday night I am
Normally, I'm making beer/wine, riding/racing the BMX track, playing some video games, bowling, out with friends, or just hanging out by myself enjoying a movie or book. Preferably, I'm hanging out with you. ;)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes sad/moving movies make me cry. I turn into a big old blubbering teddy bear...lol.
