ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

*cracks knuckles*

Okay, let's do this!

When I turned 35 I looked in the mirror and didn't like what I saw. So I turned that fat, kinda-lazy guy into a fit, successful father. Mix together some sweat, some protein, and a couple of ice packs and I'm faster, stronger, and sharper than I was ten years ago. Life is going great, can't complain about a thing.

9 to 5 I'm a programmer/data miner with a very corporate title that I can't keep track of - Senior Transition Specialist Paradigm Client Manager Guy or the like. I take giant databases of numbers and convert it into plain English and snazzy pie charts to help marketers sell cereal and paper towels. Okay, that's a bit flippant but it's not far from the truth. Preventing needless transportation and food waste, one colorful infographic at a time.

Prior to this I wrote the displays for air traffic control software. Have you flown in the past eight years? You've (passively) used my software!

In my free time I enjoy league play - softball in the summers and bowling in the winter. I've spent the past nine years on the local public library board and do tech work for a non-profit. I pick up the occasional radio gig here and there and then there's *always* kid stuff going on. When I'm not running like I've got a pig by the tail, I cook, play handyman, and crash in my hammock.

I listen to a lot of radio - MPR, the Current, 94.5, and acoustic sunrise/sunset on 97.1.

I'm a pretty good writer, I swing a mean hammer, but I can't sing worth a lick.

Let's talk about you:

- Do you have a passion? How about moxie? Joie de vivre?
- Are you generally upbeat and positive? Obviously no one is all the time - we both know that -but you know, in general.
- Can you cook? 50/50 is all I ask. I'm pretty good myself, we should cook together. :)
- A little femininity but not too much, yeah? More than Ellen, less than Charo. I bring some masculinity to the table so some yin to my yang is a good balance.
- We're a team. I'll happily get up at terrible hours in the morning if you need me to, I'll run the forgotten errand, but I expect the same from you. It's a big world out there, I'm looking for a teammate, for honest feedback, for someone open to a connection.
- There's 'us' time and we both need our 'me' time too.

Okay, how about some potential issues? :)
- I drink *maybe* once or twice a year. You can - it's just not me. If a business or social situation demands it I've got no problem tossing one back for show.
- Politically I'm very liberal but I also hunt (for food, not entertainment) and I enjoy contact sports like MMA/UFC/football. I don't see that as contradictory.
- I can't grow a beard. Oh, I can grow *patches* of a beard but nothing actually resembling the Real Deal.
- If we pass by something like "The Largest Fiberglass Walleye In The World" I'm going to stop and take a picture of us by it.

If you've made it this far, why not send me a message?

For fun:

If the weather's nice, I'll drag you outside for something coed: bikes, walking, washing cars*, small-town baseball games, canoes. In the winter: home repair, working out, cooking, catching up on a show. (* No, really - it's fun! :)

I'm an adventurous eater - share what you love with me and I'll do the same. Then let's find great sushi, pizza, Mexican, Thai, Chinese, anything spicy really, bowling alley frozen pizza, hot dogs at a ballpark, and Sunday morning pancakes.

Favorite things:

I listen to a lot of radio: MPR (91.1 KNOW), The Current 89.3, 1080AM KYMN, 97.1's Acoustic Sunrise/Sunset. TV-wise I keep up with Breaking Bad. I'll see just about anything if we can go to a movie theater. :)

Last read:

I used to try and keep this up to date, you should really just ask. :) I read a lot, sometimes it's serious, sometimes it's just westerns.
