More About Me

First and foremost, I am a gentleman and chivalry is definitely not dead. Everyone knows me to be a very laid back guy who always puts family and friends before my own needs. I am loyal, honest, trustworthy, energetic, always on the go, open, genuine, hard-working, caring, intelligent, and funny - in no particular order. I put myself through college, have a very successful IT career, and proudly served in the US Air Force from 1991 to 2000.

My interests and tastes vary greatly and I hope hers will too. We can either go out to shops or for a hike, or stay on the couch or in bed all day with movies and snacks. I like supporting local businesses and going to live shows. I can go from riding ATVs and dirt bikes out in the mud, to going to the symphony at the Creative Arts Center. I love the outdoors and I recently purchased property at Big Bear Lake. You'll hear country music blaring while I'm working on a project at home. I also like running across classic rock songs I haven't heard in years or relaxing to classical or jazz. Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Sci-Fi, Gordon Ramsay cooking shows, Mel Brooks comedies, classic black and white films, Chinese cinema with subtitles, witty James May shows, and anything in-between. Coffee houses, craft beers, steak, lobster, sushi, pizza, pasta... it doesn't matter, and I'm actually a pretty good cook. Homemade pasta, grilling steak, making my own sushi, or just finding a recipe and trying something new. There is so much to experience and I'm always up for learning something. I like sitting back at the end of the day and admiring the results of hard work. I'd prefer to split a load of wood by hand than have it delivered, then sit back on the benches and fire pit I built and enjoy a warm fire and a cold beer.

More About my Match

I simply want to meet an honest, open, and intelligent woman who can go from spending the day outdoors to dining at an up-scale restaurant that evening, followed by throwing on her jeans and enjoying a night around a warm fire pit either enjoying a glass of wine or cracking open a cold beer.

There is no perfect match. Just that person you click with, can talk with effortlessly, love being around them or can't wait until the next time you see them. It's all about the feelings you get from just knowing they are in your life.

The ideal date for me is when it feels natural. There are no awkward silences unless I'm complimenting her and she's trying to hide the fact she is blushing.


I've done just about every job in IT from my time in the military (91-00) until now. Focused on software development in my current position.
