I am always an optimist. I don't see the world through rose-colored glasses, but I do find a way to make the most of a situation and to see the best in any person. I like meeting new people because everyone has something unique to share and I can learn something interesting from anyone.
I am romantic at heart and love to give and receive affection. Mutually supporting one another emotionally leads to a rewarding relationship and I love to do little and big things for someone to make them smile.
I exercise every day and hope that you value health and fitness as well. However, I like to frequently go out to restaurants and I try to find the newest or coolest restaurant in the city. The food in SF is amazing and I enjoy reading about all things culinary. I am also an avid collector of old French wine (some California too).
I have two kids, a 7 year old boy and a 10 year old girl. They are the two most beautiful and sweet children. She is super smart and artistic so I took her to Paris for her 10th birthday (just a daddy/daughter trip). He is the most loving child and precious little person. As you can tell, I love being a father. This is one my passions. I do everything for them and with them and I hope you love children as much as I do.
That being said, I love my adult and alone time. I am happy with a day trip to Napa or Muir Woods, or even a getaway to Vegas. Adult time is just as important because all relationships must be nurtured in order to thrive. I hope you are funny and have a good sense of humor because I love to joke around and I have a quick wit.
Traveling is among my favorite things. I have been to many countries and I appreciate the various cultures I have encountered. I have lived in Japan and Spain so I speak both of those languages, but I don't get to practice Japanese unless I go to sushi (so I eat a lot of sushi!).
My favorite sport in the summer is tennis and for winter it is skiing. I like to go hiking and bring a picnic lunch with me. Being outside and active with the sun on my face is the best!
Random fact about me: I used to treat the animals (volunteer with a medical team) at the SF Zoo and Six Flags Park. I have worked on gorillas, Kodiak bears, koalas, lions, tigers, dolphins, walruses, an orca, and more. I have a whole power point presentation on what I have done. It was super fun! [^]
