ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I'm the father of two kinda-grown sons (ages 20 and 19). My oldest lives in Lexington, KY and is a Junior at the University of Kentucky, and my youngest went to culinary school and is gainfully employed at a fantastic restaurant here in Northern Kentucky (

I've worked in IT for the past 21 years, and I've been with my current company for the past 11. I bubble screaming and crashing into the ground, and survived it. I'm entirely self-taught in my field. I did begin college at Indiana University where I was studying journalism at the Ernie Pyle J-School. Life happened, and I had to drop out. Computers had always been a hobby for me, and I had sworn I would never go into them professionally for fear of losing the passion. Needing to feed a family will force some compromises, so that's how I entered the field. Luckily for me, I've not burned out yet.

I tend to have nerdy pursuits outside of work. I have a huge collection of board games (100 ), and one book case devoted to role playing games. I have several milk crates full of assorted electronics cables, and I could probably open a vintage computer museum from parts you can find in my basement.

Humor is what makes me tick. My style of humor varies from sarcastic to dark, to absurdist. Think Bill Hicks / Steve Martin / Mitch Hedberg / Steven Wright. My ideal match is someone who shares my sense of humor, and is quick to laugh.

I've been told I have a nice voice, if that counts for anything. I was a radio DJ for a couple of semesters in college, and I currently volunteer twice a week at the Cincinnati Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired where I read the newspaper on the radio. I read the entire Harry Potter series aloud to my children as they grew up. The last book in the series, I read to them in one sitting, beginning right after we picked it up at the midnight release. One seventeen hour sitting. They say I do a passable Hagrid impersonation.

Ignore the beard in the profile picture despite its powerful presence. It's transient. I'm using it to conceal the transformation I'm currently going through. I've spent the past 15 years piling on pounds while raising my kids (I know, lame excuse, but work with me). In the past 6 months, I've lost 70 pounds, and figure by late Spring of 2013, I'll be right where I want to be. The beard coming off will be the unveiling.

I'm rediscovering physical activity, as I continue to shed pounds. I'm walking/hiking a lot more (16 miles this past week), and I've made plans to spend one long weekend of every Spring and Summer month in 2013 at a different Kentucky State park.

Music: Bauhaus, DJ Krush, Jane's Addiction, Ministry, Nirvana, Neutral Milk Hotel, Flaming Lips, Tom Waits, too many to list.

Last read:

I just finished reading George R.R. Martin's 'Song of Ice and Fire' series (or all that's currently published). Apparently I was the only nerd in America who had not read it. Earlier this year I also read 'The Crying of Lot 49' by Thomas Pynchon.
