About Me
Hi there, welcome to my profile. Make yourself at home, look around, see if there's anything that interests you. Oh, be careful and don't open any closets, that's where I have put my baggage so that it's nicely out of the way.

"True love is like a pair of socks: you gotta have two and they've gotta match."

"We’re all seeking that special person who is right for us. But if you’ve been through enough relationships, you begin to suspect there’s no right person, just different flavors of wrong. Why is this? Because you yourself are wrong in some way, and you seek out partners who are wrong in some complementary way. But it takes a lot of living to grow fully into your own wrongness. And it isn’t until you finally run up against your deepest demons, your unsolvable problems—the ones that make you truly who you are—that we’re ready to find a lifelong mate. Only then do you finally know what you’re looking for. You’re looking for the wrong person. But not just any wrong person: the right wrong person—someone you lovingly gaze upon and think, “This is the problem I want to have.” I will find that special person who is wrong for me in just the right way." - Andrew Boyd

"Let our scars fall in love." - Galway Kinyell

As a person, I flow easily between the extroverted social butterfly, and the introverted stay at home cinephile. I can fit into most social situations, and enjoy meeting new people.

I'm currently a software development manager, and most of my careers have been technical and engineering oriented, but software, especially when I was doing more of the development, has allowed me to express a bit more of my creative side. While I greatly enjoy the unarguable nature of logic, and science, I also strive to expand that love of creativity that software development merely scratched the surface of. So far my favorite outlet has been writing. I have written some fiction, mostly short stories, and have had two essays published.

I grew up in east Tennessee, spent nine years in the Navy, and have (quite literally) been around the world. My favorite places were Australia and New Zealand.It was in the Navy where, I suppose, I truly developed my wanderlust. The middle years were spent raising children. But in the past six years, I've started roaming again. I love exploring and discovering new places, new people, and new things. I've been to Europe twice, France each time, but also Switzerland, and Spain. I've also been to South Korea, and Japan. My next trip is going to be Iceland, hopefully a magical ten days where I shall, perhaps several times, straddle the North American and European tectonic plates. Along with my wanderlust, I feel that I am an open minded fellow, as I found it was much easier to enjoy where you are, when you don't take every single thing of where you've been with you.

I love foreign movies (especially British/French), but being a typical man, I also like the standard action movies. I enjoy a routine as much as the next person, but with that wanderlust in my soul, travel is very high on my list of loves. I love being outdoors, and going to festivals. I love exploring, and trying new things, and learning new things. I would prefer someone who is open to experiencing life. Also I'm a certified scuba diver, so if you are too, or interested, that would be great. After moving to Savannah, I am interested in learning to sail. Imagine that, nine years as a sailor, yet can't sail. Well, you can't catch much of a breeze in a submarine.

I have had many experiences in my life, and have had many highs and lows. The lows taught me to appreciate the highs, and also to not judge people who are in their lows. I am a rather liberal person, and definitely have no religious affiliations. I believe in the right of every human being to seek his or her happiness. And I will, ironically stated, not tolerate intolerance.

Peace and love is my motto.


Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Definitely a quiet place to talk. No loud bars, just a coffee shop, restaurant, or lounge. I'm not in a hurry for anything.
