My name is Mike. I love Minnesota. I grew up and live in Minneapolis. I own a home and rent it out to students. I'm also taking evening classes to learn how to paint in the 'old school' way and I work pt at an ice arena driving the Zamboni. Lessons anyone? I selected the title of 'maintenance' for my occupation above because I do ice-maintenance. However, I'm not a total dork! I graduated in '02 with a BS in microbiology, (I had wanted to go into medicine, but who doesn't when they're an undergrad biological science major!!!) then worked for several years in the medical device industry. I started there just doing basic quality tests (endotoxin testing) and assisting on other research projects (studying bacterial biofilms) then our department was canned and I transferred to a research job under the chief scientific officer. We were working on a government grant studying control methods for dental water-unit biofilms. You really don't want to know what's in the water at your local dental office! Unfortunately that department was canned due to the company's growth and becoming ineligible to recieve anymore grants - got to keep the projected earnings up you know! - and I became disenchanted with that line of work ((the $$$'s not in the lab when it comes to business!)). I still love the science of it though. I learned a lot at that place and I've thought of going back to school for a graduate degree but haven't made up my mind yet. But if I did go back it would be to study biofilms and device centered infections. It's morbid stuff, but there's a real need to figure out control methods since these sorts of infections are so horrible - all you can really do is explant the device . So, I currently work pt driving a Zamboni at a rink I first started working at about 13 years ago, I literally go in circles, and I'm trying to learn how to paint. However, as it is incredibly hard to get paid in that line of work, although some people do, and well I might add, I've just started looking for another microbiology job, hopefully assisting on some sort of research at the U. Ideally, I'd like to be able to support myself, and hopefully others, by painting pictures - landscapes and wildlife art mostly - but I realize it's a longshot and very challenging. I'm a bit of a toad still I guess and I'm willing to admit it. I just need a princess to help me out! Anyways, for fun I like to play hockey at least four times a week, go to the picture galleries at the MIA to study the paintings, or the zoo to study animals. I guess I'm a little wierd but who isn't?! Anyways, in the meantime I'd really like to find a girl I could spend time with and do fun things with. I love cooking, exploring the great outdoors, especially hiking, and just taking rides where I've never been before. I also love snowboarding then chillin in front of a cozy fireplace with a real hottie under my arm. I'm thinking of getting a motorcycle again this spring and it sure is fun to have someone to ride with. I also love to travel and have been blessed in getting to go and see a lot of cool places on this earth. Did I mention I also have a passion for hockey? I lift weights several times a week too. I do enjoy the occasional beer, usually from Canada, it helps with the hockey. I don't know what else to write about me now, although there is plenty more. Just ask.

I'm a lifelong writer. From about the age of 6 I began composing poems. Thanks to my Mother and her uncanny ability to recognize the things worth saving, and her attention to detail in the scrapbooks and photo albums she made for me and my two younger brothers, I still have little scraps of notebook paper with poems, always written in pencil. I stuck with poems until my early 30's when I realized I was using them as a crutch to avoid what I truly and secretly wanted...and dreaded. Writing fiction. I'm still struggling with it, but I'm making headway. I've made significant changes in my lifestyle and work habits to establish (and protect) the serenity and sanctuary essential to my peace of mind, and thus my writing. I often laugh at myself over the fact that I'm the oldest best unpublished writer no one's ever heard of. I also love drawing and painting, especially with soft pastels. I recognize that for me these are all solitary endeavors, but they're essential and I don't see any tradeoffs I've made to obtain them as drawbacks. For enjoyable activities beside the above, I love bicycling, independent bookshops, tucked away antique stores, art, science and history museums, and the discovery of new neighborhood coffee shops, of which Minnesota is overflowing. They're everywhere. I also happen to live in the most populous cycling state in the US. Bicyclists and bike lanes on city streets are ubiquitous. I'm a supreme lover of all the aspects and amazements of Nature. This includes the wonders of the sea and the enormity of the heavens. I love Bruce Springsteen. I love savoring the work of great photographers after doing it myself for a living for 20+ years in Dallas, Texas. I love monuments and stopping to read historical markers along the highway. I love libraries and could stay in one all day if given the choice. I love walking along beaches in the fall and in wintertime. Unseasonable months when they're always deserted. I love classic, timeless attire. I love talking to the postman, and the guys in the alley on each Monday morning, pulling up slowly to empty my trash bin then hauling the garbage away. During my unnecessarily brutal and hostile divorce in the years between 2002 and 2008, the blue collar workers like the guys on the trash truck were each far more of a friend to me than the folks I used to sit next to in church who moved to other pews when word got around of divorce. This, despite having won primary custody of my then 14-year old son, and doing so in the absence of an attorney. I loved watching my Son become an expert sharpshooter in paintball during his teenage years. I loved the pets we had, for we cherished them as a family all their lives. I loved being a Boy Scout, as years later so did my Son. Both of us, in our own youth and times, becoming all we wanted, two Eagle Scouts. I love the thought of our medals, now side by side. And, when all is said and done, I love and I live for only two passions. The Lord, my God, and my Son. Oh, and I love boats and trains and pizza and steak and French fries and burgers and iced diet Coke. Jack Daniels bourbon and non-alcoholic St. Pauli Girl beer. A great Caesar salad and 2am omlettes. Rum cherry ice cream and street vendor hot dogs. Bagels and cream cheese and PB & J.
