ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

You might be saying to yourself, "Self, this guy isn't hideous. Who is he?" (and you get bonus points if you address yourself as Self). I'm a down-to-earth guy who has a big streak of idealism running through him, partially balanced by a much smaller streak of worldly cynicism. I'm an intelligent and well-spoken guy who makes smart jokes which usually (though not always) get laughs. I'm a warm and caring guy who will talk a friend through difficult stuff, and get out of bed at 3:00am to bail a good friend out of jail (no, I really have done that recently). I'm a handy guy who would do his own car maintenance if he had the time, and can troubleshoot and fix stuff that's broken, but also knows when to call a professional. I'm a survivor who's been through some rough patches and figured my stuff out and pulled through with the help of awesome friends. I'm an adventurer who has no qualms about walking backward off a cliff, or jumping out of an airplane. I'm often the butt of my own jokes, I'm honest (go ahead, ask me a tough question), and I'm a smartass who will call you on your b/s. In short, I'm pretty awesome, and humble about it to boot. ;-) Oh, and a good female friend of mine who is 5'10" told me to let you tall women know you can put on your heels, I really am 6'2".

I am vegetarian and have been for many years because I have a deep love and appreciation for all animals. That doesn't mean you have to be one also, and I don't let my diet choices stop me from going out with friends to a steakhouse on occasion. Give me a salad and a baked sweet potato and I'm very happy.

I believe in making margaritas with real lime juice, and that guacamole comes from avocados, not a plastic tub. I buy whole-bean coffee in small amounts and grind it fresh every morning. I think popcorn and microwaves really don't go together. If that makes me a snob, so be it. Oh, and if your cat or dog isn't spayed or neutered we're gonna have a come-to-Jesus meeting. Really.

Life, to me, is about relationships and growing. I'm very active and involved in my world. I do have a real job that is about helping people with technology, although a big part of that these days is mentoring an amazing young man. I also volunteer with the youth at my church, and am closely involved with a social media startup serving a social cause. If your definition of success is about the things you have done, the places you've been, the things you've learned, and having an incredible circle of friends and loved ones, then I'm rich beyond measure.

I was a Hospital Corpsman in the Navy and spent my last tour as a field medic on Okinawa with the Marines, so I'm handy in an emergency.

I don't really have a list of qualifications for you, but I value honesty, compassion, an open mind, optimism, a sense of wonder, the ability to express yourself, and patience.

So, why wouldn't you message me? Did you read all that other stuff? ;-) Possible questions are about the first time I went rappelling, diving, or jumped out of an airplane. And, really, I'm pretty friendly.

Talk to you soon!

Pet Essay:

I seriously love animals. I'm very involved with a rescue that a dear friend of mine runs, but I intentionally don't have animals because I'm not home much, and I don't think it's fair to have them sitting around waiting for me.

For fun:

Spending time with friends. I do audio and video/photography for a local band, I've even been known to get up on stage and sing lead. Shooting craps (for fun, not for money), playing guitar, classic movies, a good hike on a pleasant day.

Favorite hot spots:

Weekend jaunts to NYC, DC, or Las Vegas. Hiking in N. Georgia, the Maine coast, the El Azteca around the corner. I want to go back to Okinawa and I hope to have the chance to spend time in Africa and South America.

Favorite things:

Music, laughter, my sisters and their children, cooking, lingering kisses, good conversation, dry humor, solving problems, thunderstorms, falling asleep to the sound of rain, Audrey Hepburn, brown coats, and things that are bigger on the inside
