The one thing I am passionate about...
Being positive and finding the pleasure in every moment is for what I live. I love to be around people who are like-minded so we can share in those moments. I've had some amazing experiences I've been able to share lately: Introducing a friend to sushi, going to the zoo for the first time in years, and being on a footbridge when a freight train passed under. Trains are the best! The past few years I have focused on personal growth and living a healthier lifestyle, two things that are very important to me.
I typically spend my leisure time
I like to try new hobbies and learn new skills or have different experiences. Recent interests include flying radio control aircraft and building Lego sets. However, my constants are reading, working on household projects, working on my cars, and just hanging out with good friends. I love going out to eat and trying new food and drink. Over the past few years I have developed a passion for cooking. I love the science of cooking and mastering new dishes. I can spend all day preparing a dish for a friend to enjoy!
The most influential person in my life has been
I am looking for a partner in life who is intelligent, funny, emotional, and not afraid to try new experiences. Above all else I want someone who is honest and can fully commit to a relationship.
The first thing people notice about me
In dim light my unusually large pupils. In bright light my wonderfully blue eyes.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I was at the airport with some programming books in my suitcase and decided I was on vacation and should enjoy myself. I wandered into the bookstore and realized I hadn't looked at physical books in years. I ended up with The Wright Brothers, which was an awesome book. It felt good to hold a physical non-work related book again.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Good friends and family that enrich my life
- An interesting and fulfilling career
- Self growth
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I hate it when people make assumptions. I make an effort to keep an open mind. People are always shocked when they learn I can do more than fix their computer. I have the attitude that I can accomplish anything I put my mind and/or body towards. Thank goodness not just for books but for the wealth of information available instantly on the internet!
Friends Describe me as
Articulate, Energetic, Intelligent, Kind
A little more about me
Sorry my pictures aren't great. Neither I nor my friends take pictures of ourselves. My phone is filled with pictures of food, my cat, and other random silly things. I need to remember to get a picture with friends at the next Husker game. I'm usually focused on the moment so I'm the last person you'll see whipping out his phone to take a picture unless it's something I want to share with a friend.
