In a nutshell: Be responsible, but not to the point of being no fun
- have lots of fun but not to the point of being irresponsible.
What I’m doing with my life
Mentoring. Both my kids and my work. Now that they are teens, lots
of life lessons to (gently :) impart. My company helps small
businesses grow through internet marketing and other value add
propositions such as financing alternatives, consulting, etc. .
I’m really good at
Sports, cuddling, singing, dancing, playing piano, (hey, I'm Billy
Joel), making people laugh, giving, being a father, marriage (1 for
1 in that department :), geeky things like multiplying numbers in
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm always at least 6'3" regardless of the length of time since the
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite Book: "An Autobiography: What to do when you are
Ridiculously Rich and Retired" (still waiting a little while to
write that one).
Favorite Movie: The Screenplay of the above book
Music: Love most all of it, Rock, Classic Rock, Alternative,
Popular (it's getting a little better), Reggae, Jazz, Blues. Not so
much Country or Rap, although as Country melds more with rock it

percs, but I never would have been able to coach my kids teams
either (among other things).
On a typical Friday night I am
Generally chilling. Hopefully on or near the beach. Love oceanfront
happy hour sunsets. Oh, and on that note, that will likely be my
suggestion on where we will meet. Anyone can meet at a Starbuck's
at an inland strip mall, if you live in say, Nebraska, why do that
when we live here?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm picky! It took me until I was 33 to meet my first dream girl,
and it has taken me the last 9 in my quest to meet my last dream
girl, but I am patient, because once you have found the bliss of a
wonderful long lasting relationship, it is truly nirvana!
You should message me if
You are hot, and that is all that matters. :-)
Ok, to be serious, attractiveness certainly counts for quite a bit,
who are we fooling if we say otherwise, however; intelligence,
kindness, compassion, happy, fun, not obsessed with materialism and
image, and obviously a woman who loves kids (I have no ex's in the
picture, so if you are good to my kids, they are going to love you
