My self-summary
It’s simple right...finding that person that makes your heart skip faster just by thinking of her. That someone who every song you want to sing to or with. That soul who you know you can share your most wonderful occasions, deepest secrets and darkest moments with. It’s just that simple...

I think finding someone that has matching interests is the ideal scenario however, I'm not a believer that we need to share all of the same interests. Independence is good. Independence in a relationship built on trust is even better. I love the idea of being introduced to something new by someone special. If you are comfortable in a fine dining restaurant as well as sitting on a corner bar stool with a good jukebox and a pool table, we will get along. If you know where we can see some good local music or aren't afraid to turn your stereo up loud, even if the kids are sleeping or turn your car stereo up with the windows rolled down and sing at the top of your lungs, you are a winner in my eyes. Honesty, consistency, sincerity, willingness to communicate about topics that may not always be comfortable, trustworthiness and loyalty are essential characteristics in a person for me. I am pretty laid back and willing to go with the flow. I am hopeful to find someone who can do the same and see what happens from there.

I believe in Karma and the Karma Bank. I'm horrible at remembering song titles. I lose my wallet or keys at least 1x/month. I think I am kind of funny and have no problem laughing at myself. I have been known to share my opinion and has at times, put me in a tough spot. I think I have a genuine caring for people and their happiness. I believe I am a person of strong character and values and I believe it shows in how I treat people, friends or not. I enjoy mornings on the deck, especially Sundays listening to American Routes and United States of Americana on the Current while listening to the birds enjoy the morning. I love technology and find myself always trying to find a new way to use to make my life more efficient or fun. I'm a weather geek. Watching weather maps and weather reports is trait that often gets that "labrador head tilt" look from most people I know.

Family, Friends and Music are very important to me. I like to explore new music and enjoy seeing live bands as often as I can especially with people I care about. I'm really looking to find someone that makes me laugh, keeps me in check and is not offended by my sarcasm.

I have this romantic vision of watching the sun rise drinking my morning coffee on the deck yet I hate getting up pre-sunrise to fulfill that. Major inner conflict happenin' there. I'm not against being active every day but don't want my day to be completely scheduled so I am on the go all the time. I have no problem changing plans when a beautiful night on the deck with some music presents itself. I like to cook. Mostly I like to cook with someone who makes me laugh and doesn't take the process too seriously. Something about cooking together makes the meal that much better. Taking in Minnesota Twins baseball and Gophers football games are part of my regular routine. While I find the effects of working out to be worth the pain, it does get kind of boring all by myself.
My 13 year old daughter is the light of my life and I spend as much time as I can with her. We recently have started the live music visits together. Been an unbelievably exciting new experience for me. I am lucky, I have a very amicable relationship with her mother which allows for a schedule conducive to being a parent and still exploring what is out there on my own.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a job I love, great friends, and the most beautiful little girl I could hope for. I don't need a lot but would love to find that someone special to share everyday moments with.
I’m really good at
Planning the next get together.
Finding a reason to meet up with friends. Watching the weather.
Taking a group photo while being a part of the photo.
The first things people usually notice about me
No idea.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music is the most important of the 4 listed. I enjoy all types of music and am open to all kinds. My own rule is 3 listens before deciding whether a song or cd stays on my computer. Wilco, My Morning Jacket, Typhoon, Arcade Fire, David Bowie, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Phosphorescent, Bruno Mars, Band of Horses, Boy & Bear, Civil Wars, Boombox, Daft Punk, Dessa, The Replacements, Head & the Heart, Fountains of Wayne, Trip Shakespeare and Prince to name a few. My daughter's is mysteriously finding it's way into my mix. Always searching for new music.

TV: Psych. Sons of Anarchy. Fargo, The Blacklist. Austin City Limits. Saturday Night Live. Any music awards show.

I am open to nearly any type of movie and usually won't turn one down, but don't necessarily look to see one as a first choice.

While pizza hands down wins my heart, spicy Thai food runs a very close second. Make it a priority for pizza and Thai in any city I stop.
Six things I could never do without
Beyond the obvious of my daughter and friends, here they are in no particular order:
live music
my deck
Jalapeño peppers
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where and when my next great vacation will be.
On a typical Friday night I am
When not with my daughter, I'm sitting on the deck listening to music, watching the Twins or hanging with friends (preferably with live local music).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't drink hot coffee with a hot breakfast.
Lionel Richie occasionally makes a playlist of mine.
