Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A Valentine's Day baby who loves to travel, I'm originally from the
Midwest. I'm a combination of laid back and adventurous, ambitious
but not pretentious, and homebody yet very social. Being
well-rounded and balanced is extremely important to me.
Travel is a major part of my life. I love exploring new landscapes,
trying new foods, and meeting people from all walks of life....both
here in the US and abroad. I studied in Spain in college and that
has had a huge effect on both my personal and professional
The last few years, I've lived a bit unconventionally. About four
years ago, I was feeling very trapped and unhappy at a job that
demanded most of my life. I didn't know what I wanted to do but I
knew that wasn't it...so I resigned. I took a good six months or so
off, working on non-professional parts of my life (taught salsa
dancing, worked out a lot, spent time with family, etc.) and
re-evaluating what I really wanted to do professionally. It was a
good era of self-discovery.
Eventually, I settled on starting my own business. It's been a very
challenging but extremely rewarding experience, and now I can't
imagine doing anything else. I love the flexibility that being my
own boss permits, and the commute in the morning isn't bad
either...about 10 secs too my kitchen table. :-)
At this point in my life, I'm hoping to find someone to eventually
build a family life with....as well as being my travel partner in
crime. I'm looking for someone responsible, considerate,
self-assured...with some adventurousness thrown in. Someone who
strikes a good balance of being protective of his partner and
family but not overly jealous or overbearing. And someone who loves
to explore the world as much as I do.

to both make changes in the world and have one hell of a good time.
Sometimes this makes planning the day difficult." - E.B. White

I read a lot and like a variety of genres...
Music-wise I like everything from pop to Latin to dance to
classical to jazz... but not country music.
Wicked is by far my favorite musical. I loved LOST and am a big Law
& Order fan.
I enjoy almost all types of food and am not a picky eater.
