I’m a Christian who defies the usual stereotypes.
I’m the guy you’ll be proud to take home to your parents, but we’ll have even more fun when we leave together.
I work hard and play harder.
Work: Project Manager within Microsoft's Online Services division.
Play: - Making music with my guitar, drums, bass, and keyboard.
- Composing and producing music for my theatre company as a ministry. On that note, when I was in college, I once had a terrible migraine. I went to church, and even though the worship band was incredibly loud, the migraine all but disappeared. I can also say I've returned the favor by being a member of worship teams over the years.
- Exploring the Amalfi coast in Italy, the fairy tale castles of Southern Bavaria, Mozart’s birthplace, or my ancestors’ stomping grounds in Sicily. Or DJing in Munich. (Seattle awaits, perhaps) Or catching a barracuda off Barbuda. Or taking part in a sailboat race (and capsizing!). Or just sitting on a beach playing my guitar, Jimmy Buffet style.
Random facts about me:
When I was at the UW, I would occasionally get bored during my class lectures. To pass the time, and keep myself occupied, I'd start writing my notes with the opposite hand, and I'd switch off every few lines. I don't think anyone ever noticed.
I grew up with "pigs" as pets. First, it was guinea pigs up until I was 12. Then my Mom got tired of the inevitable emotional breakdowns every five years, and we decided to get more longer lived pigs, of the pot-bellied variety.
I know who I am, and I know what I want, but I’m open to new possibilities.
PS: This site shouldn't be confused with a Twitter client, i.e., I tend to appreciate e-mail responses greater than 140 characters in length. ;)
I feel that variety is the spice of life. Some things that I've done over the past year, with or without others, include going to a hockey game, painting ceramics, going snowshoeing, trying out different forms of dance, seeing musicals and plays, playing miniature golf, and checking out the San Juan Islands and Oahu.
I'm a fun guy, however, I want to first get to know someone outside of the lens of any of these and keep it simple. Coffee is ok with me. Do we have chemistry in normal conversation? Can we explore the surrounding area and find that we have a lot to talk about and enjoy each others company? I'm looking forward to finding out.
