My self-summary
Originally from Boston, I've returned to Nebraska July (2011) to be closer to my daughters (two pf them). I used to be in the Air Force which is what brought me out to Nebraska in the first place. I'm not sure if I will every fully get used to Nebraska but I'm wiling to give it a try. Boston will always be "home" to me but I'm learning to find the pleasures Nebraska can offer.

Some of my friends have tried to help me fill this "about me" section out.... they say that I'll get more people looking at my profile. I guess the problem I have is that I don't want just "anyone" looking at my profile -- doesn't seem like much use if they look but when you get to talk you discover there isn't any chemistry.

So, to finally just try something new, here it is. I'm a geek, I'm a mechanic, I'm a technology nut, and I'm a nature lover.
I love going for hikes in the woods (or in general), taking scenic runs on my motorcycle, getting my hands dirty with my engine, or keeping my mind sharp working with my computer systems.

I enjoy music, movies, and (when I can) reading. My tastes vary from Classical to Rock to Techno to Metal (Beatles, Ozzy, etc). I like action movies... comedies... and things in between. I like reading (don't do it as much as I'd like -- but I still enjoy it). I love camping and being outdoors. Going to the White Mountains is by far one of my absolute favorite things to do -- as well as photography (which the two go together quite well).

A lot of information in there in a relative short space... sorry if it jumps around a bit. Just trying to get as much out as I can and hopefully some of it catches your eye.
What I’m doing with my life
Mostly working. I lucked out about a year ago when I came upon the job I have; I enjoy doing what I do which makes going to work each day not feel like a chore.
In my spare time I've been learning new skills (for work) as well as trying to "get out there" and enjoy life.
I’m really good at
"Jack of all trades, master of none" - Air Force motto that has fit me rather nicely. (OK, maybe I've mastered a few things)
I try to be good at most things I do... I can cook, I can fix most things on my car, I can resolve most computer troubles (I hope so as that is a major part of my job)
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes.... They tend to change color with my mood but in general remain a brilliant blue color that seems to mesmerize people (or so I'm told anyway).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Snow Crash, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Pendragon Cycle (Taliesin, Merlin, Arthur), Star Wars - Extended Universe Stuff, Myth Adventures... Starting to try to read some of the "classics" like Count of Monte Cristo, Lord of the Rings, etc. Though lately a lot of my "latest reads" have been certification books for work.

Movies: The Professional, Star Wars, Count of Monte Cristo, Pixar Stuff, Office Space, any Muppet movie, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Army of Darkness

Shows: Futurama, Family Guy, Farscape, Battlestar Galactica (newer series) (I've been known to enjoy the Law and Order/NCIS type shows too, but shhh)

Music: Beatles, Freezepop, Black Label Society (Yeah, I have a wide range of musical tastes), XTC, They Might Be Giants

Food: Sushi, Steak/Potatoes (and most things in between)... I'll try just about anything -- unless its moving on my plate, then I'll have to put it in the consideration pile

Games: I do enjoy relaxing a bit with some various games. Video as well as card and board games. Some of my favorites are Steve Jackson games, Skyrim, Talisman, etc
Six things I could never do without
In no particular order:
- Computer/Internet
- Cell Phone
- Hiking Shoes
- Motorcycle
- Mountains near me (yes, this was very difficult to give up having moved here from New England -- however, I take comfort in knowing that the "Rockies" are 'only' a 9 hour drive)
... OK, you get five for now. The first two are mostly because I like to know I can be in touch with my friends/family whenever/wherever. The last three because I love to go out on road trips and hike/camp in the mountains.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
World peace. (anyone buying that one? No? Damn)
Honestly, it would seem hiking/camping in the White Mountains is quite often on my mind. Between that and my future - I try to keep a mild perspective on my future but for the most part I like to let things happen as they come (though, obviously, I do try to maintain events which will improve my future).
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends on the season. I try to keep myself busy but on a Friday night I will generally be trying to find a way to decompress from the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
One on one I'm a pretty open book. If you ask me something I'm likely to be extremely honest with you. That said, I'm not as inclined to publicly announce something private about me just yet. (I gotta keep some intrigue).
You should message me if like movies, camping (being outdoors), road trips, intelligence, guys who treat women with respect, chivalry, fun/adventure.
Having a bit of a "geek" in you woulnd't hurt either.
