Ryan & Amanda at Fairy Stone State Park (VA)I am a 35 year old male, living in Durham, North Carolina. I’ve lived in a fair number of places in the course of my multi-decade life thus far including Williamsport, PA, Baltimore, MD (Woodlawn and Randallstown), Virginia Beach, VA (Chesapeake) and Durham, NC.

I’m not Tar Heel born, nor Tar Heel bred, but I went to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for my undergrad work, and am through and through Tar Heel. My four years at Carolina were great, and I loved every minute of them… well almost every minute. I’ve been married since February 11 of 2006 and loving married / domestic life. I work as a senior front-end developer MedThink Communications in Raleigh.

In my spare time, I ride bikes (bicycles, not crotch rockets), and am retired/occasional Cat 4 racer for the TriCyclists out of Chapel Hill, NC. I’ve also gotten into running, training for my first half marathon in November.

I’ve got a broad range of musical tastes, as you can probably from my last.fm profile. My favorites include Van Halen, Foo Fighters, Metallica, Kelly Clarkson, Steel Panther, Led Zeppelin and a bunch of others.
