My self-summary
Thanks for checking out my profile! I’m outgoing, adventurous, curious, fun-loving, and young-at-heart.

I like to take walks or bike along the lake near my home, kayak, visit the sierras, tahoe, the coast, go wine tasting, catch a movie, dine out or cook together. I also like skiing and have previously been active in mountain climbing, white-water kayaking and ski mountaineering.

I'd like to find someone who shares a few of my interests; someone who is warm and can be affectionate; someone who is comfortable with holding hands at times and the occasional pda. A good sense of humor and a quick wit are very important to me.

I have two boys (part-time) who help me remember what’s important in life. I'm able to trade schedules with their mom so taking trips or getting time away isn't difficult. I'm often complimented that I'm a great dad. I realize that being separated raises questions; I can assure you there is good reason and am happy to explain the situation.

I’m a professional in a technical field; I’ve always been mechanically minded and am always curious how things work and how they were designed and built. I always have a few projects in progress, often home remodeling or building something. I have a sharp mind and quick wit; I’m thoughtful and reflective.

I like PBS, NPR, The Daily Show, Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, Craig Ferguson and stupid sitcoms (The Office, 30 Rock, Modern Family and others). Music-wise, I like classic and current rock, a little country, and especially acoustic instrumentalists (think Eric Clapton), but I'll listen to almost anything. I like the Police, Sting, Mark Knopfler, Dire Straits, David Byrne, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Duffy, Gin Blossoms, Eagles, Journey, REM, Kings of Leon, Gypsy Kings, Van Halen, Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Yes, Don McLean, Peter Gabriel, Coldplay, Maroon 5, Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Fergie, Pink, Alicia Keys, Jackson Browne, Aerosmith, John Mayer, Dave Matthews, Luther Vandross, Don Henley and more.

For those of you who made it this far, thank you for taking the time to read my little novella; if I sound like someone you’d like to meet, write and tell me about you : )
What I’m doing with my life
Raising my boys and enjoying it! Life's too short to waste. I always have a few projects in the works.
I’m really good at
. . . fixing things, analyzing things, being funny, self deprecating humor, double entendres, finding the silly aspect of any situation, skiing, problem solving, kissing (so I've been told),
The first things people usually notice about me
this is tough . . . will come back to this . . . perhaps you could tell me after our first date ?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
books - The Road Less Traveled, The last lecture, movies - To Kill a Mockingbird, Paul, music - 70's & 80's rock, anything by Maroon 5, Adell, more coming soon,
Six things I could never do without
Hugs from my boys, good friends, sunny days on snow-covered slopes, that first sip of coffee in the am, my Dewalt drill/driver, meaningful work,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Being a better person, getting more organized, my boys' future, my next vacation, travel,
On a typical Friday night I am
Getting everything ready for weekend fun, working on a project, out to dinner, hiking or paddling with friends, recovering from the week,
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
On the internet???? . . . . you're kidding, right?
You should message me if
you like what your read and see here and are interested in meeting sometime.
The two of us
