I have a background in art. I attended the Columbus College of Art & Design, but found the teaching methods restricting. I would love to illustrate a series of children's books based on my original ideas. I have designed elaborate pop-up greeting cards, and also design custom cakes. I love all types of music. I listen to every genre you could imagine. From Lil Wayne to Bob Marley, from Journey to Sinatra, from Bach to The Black Keys. Music is always playing, providing an ever-changing soundtrack for my life. I have a large, vast DVD collection, and would love to snuggle up with a good movie at night.
I lift weights. I try to work-out at least four times a week.
I am very passionate about animal rights, and the rights of children. If I see anyone abuse an animal or a child, they are going to have to answer to me. I will not tolerate bullies! I am also into women's rights and equal rights for ALL.
A LITTLE ABOUT MY BABIES
I LOVE animals. I would do ANYTHING to help or save an animal.
My baby (Precious) passed away February 2009. I found her on the street, during a blizzard, she had been abused and beaten. I spent 2 hours in the snow, trying to gain her trust. The vet said she probably wouldn't have lasted another day or so. The year before she died, Precious went blind and deaf, but we still had fun and enjoyed each other's company. I swore to her that I would always take care of her and would do anything for her. Precious was the best dog I ever had, and my best friend. After Precious passed away, I adopted a toy fox terrier who had been returned to the pound three times, I decided he needed another chance. Recently I acquired a Jack Russell terrier that was being abused, and living under a house in the heat of summer, so you must love dogs. Past pets included ferrets, chinchillas, guinea pigs, a hedgehog, a skunk, hamsters, gerbils, birds and fish.
I find that kids along with animals, hold a special place in my heart, because they look to us to always protect them, care for them and be honest with them. For some reason when I visit friends, their children/grandchildren run up to me, suddenly I have two or three kids on me wanting to play. When I visit my friends, the adults are usually in one room, and the pets, kids and me are in another room having the times of our lives just enjoying each other's company.
WHAT'S IMPORTANT TO ME & WHAT I HAVE TO OFFER
To me chivalry isn't dead. I get pleasure doing the little things, I as a man can do for women just to let them know how special they are to me every single day. I am a gentleman, and I respect women. Unlike a lot of people these days, I pride myself on having INTEGRITY. I am true to my word. I am the most LOYAL, FAITHFUL, DEVOTED man you'll ever meet.
WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR IN A WOMAN
I like girlie girls, women who take pleasure in their femininity. I adore women who enjoy being a woman with all its complexities. I love upbeat women who love to laugh. A woman's true beauty shines through her eyes when she smiles. Simply, I am just looking for a girl with a good heart, a woman that is sincere, tells the truth, is loyal and knows who she is and what/who she wants. I am just a man, looking for a woman who is ready to be loved, adored, appreciated and cherished by me, and in turn reciprocate those feelings back to me. I look for my soul mate to be my companion, partner and lover, but also most importantly my very BEST FRIEND. I'm looking for that one girl, whose heart beats as hard, as fast, as passionately as mine does. A woman that I connect with on so many different levels, that we finish each other's sentences. A woman that knows what I'm feeling, by just looking into my eyes, without me ever saying a word. I'm searching for that one woman whom truly "gets ME".
