Hi I'm Dave. I was born and Raised mostly in Pittsburgh. Grew up on the North Side and Bellevue, then north Hills. Went to Assumption Catholic School through 8th grade, then North Hills through 10th grade till moving to Michigan with my Mom for her job. Following high school I moved back to Pittsburgh and went to CCAC followed by Pitt.
I've been working in IT since, and currently work in Robinson Township for a large company in the area as a Systems Administrator. I also maintain a few small business clients on the side. I love my career and am happy and fortunate to have stability in my profession. I hope to own or co-own an IT Consulting firm for the SMB sector someday.
After work I generally hit the gym. I try to maintain my fitness and keep active. If I don't make the gym, my dog Rufus and I take an extra long walk or play fetch in the park up the street. I haven't been able to run too much lately due to a knee injury and am actively on a meniscus transplant list. I cannot wait till I can get back to regular jogging/running. I was training for a marathon prior to injury. For now, Rufus does most of the running.
Camping and fishing are some of my more relaxing hobbies, though with some business opportunities this summer I have not gone as much as I'd have liked to. I like the local state parks for a quick weekend trip and have a yearly trip to deep creek lake with my family that I always love. This past spring I did a PSL Cornhole league (LOL don't laugh) at the DoubleWide Grill and am looking forward to a fall softball or kickball league.
As far as living up the nightlight in the area and I usually go out for a happy hour with co-workers, or the casino, a pirates game, or a restaurant or bar with friends. I love cooking, especially on the grill, and baking too. I enjoy spending time with my family and can't get enough of my god children. Looking forward to Steelers football and my fantasy teams.
When not too busy, I try and do household renovation projects though they can get pricey and lengthy. I enjoy working with my hands, and like fixing or building things. I'm currently trying to finish up my bathroom remodel project, and get started on a Deck/Yard redesign before winter.
My ideal match should be rooted in the area and have a good relationship with her family. She should try to maintain a healthy lifestyle through healthy diet and exercise though no one is perfect here. I can testify to this as I used to be a much larger man. I prefer to allow chemistry be my judge on what is important as far as appearance, but she should be smart, driven, independent, and funny. She should appreciate a romantic sensitive guy with a good head and sense of humor.
