The basics: I grew up in a fairly small town in northern California, then left as soon as I could, landing in Santa Barbara for college. I have lived in southern California ever since, but have remained (and will always be) a die-hard Giants, Niners, and Kings fan.
Overall, I feel extremely blessed for everything God has given me throughout my life, and I strive to live every day to love others like I have been loved. I am laid back, but passionate, and love sports, especially baseball. I seem serious to some, but really love to laugh. Although I have received many gifts in my life (none of which I have deserved), I think I consider adversity to be the greatest, because it has continued to shape me into the man I am, and the man I am becoming.
Generally, I'm pretty low-maintenance, and don't need a lot of material things to be happy. I am an INFJ, which is the most unique of all personality types. I carry around a bleeding heart (both figuratively and literally) which is full of empathy and an unapologetic idealism. I really believe these characteristics were instilled in me for a purpose, and trust they have been given to help make a positive impact in this world.
Although it would be great to find a match that I have much in common with, above all, I really would love to meet someone who also loves God and lives her life for Him. Like I said before, I'm sure that I am much more complex than that, so feel free to ask anything else you'd like to know :)
