I'm an outgoing and active professional with a need to have fun and
laughter in my life. I am also a full time dad to a beautiful 12 yr
old daughter and she is an important part of my life. She confirmed
my belief that work is a means, not an end. I am adventurous and
will last only about 10 minutes on a beach without wanting to get
up and do something. I enjoy getting out and about as well as as a
night in (cliche but I have met a few that don't).Whether it's a
new cuisine or a new outdoor adventure, it's more the company I am
with than the what to have fun!
What I’m doing with my life
I am constantly trying to learn new things and challenging myself
as well. I completed my first century (100 miles) on a bicycle and
my first 5K with lots of mud (Warrior Dash) a couple years ago and
continue riding as often as I can. This year I enjoyed the ROC race
(think the show Wipeout as a 5K obstacle course). This year seems
to be more about staying active but not going overboard, working on
my house, expanding my cooking skills and relaxing more.
I’m really good at
Learning new things, challenging myself, getting rockstar parking
spaces, drinking coffee, listening, compromising, standing for my
beliefs, sarcasm but not in a hurtful way, wit and a dash of being
a dork at times.
The first things people usually notice about me
My laughter and smile
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite books: I don't read as often as I should. I seem to
gravitate to mystery/suspense like Dean Knootz and Stephen King but
loved reading The Great Gatsby and Lord of the Flies among
Movies: Shawshank Redemption, Office Space, Christmas Story,
anything with John Cusack, Interstellar, Monty Python, The Sixth
Sense, Dead Poets Society, Shaun of the Dead, and Sleepless in
Seattle to name a few.
Shows: How I Met your Mother (sad it is no more), Grimm, Newsroom,
Game of Thrones to name a few. Redskins, Capitals and Orioles are
fun to watch with the area teams doing so well (well 2 of the 3
Music: I love all kinds of music: I am always up to listening to
something new or putting on some of the classics. I love SiriusXM
and Spotify to hear what I want nowadays. My collection includes
music from almost every style but Country is only an occasional
Food: I love almost everything! Thai, Italian, Mexican, Irish,
Sushi... you name it, I'll join you!
The six things I could never do without
My daughter is obvious so:
Laughter, it makes the days fun!
Coffee, but not a big Starbucks fan
Bacon, almost everything is better with it!
Music (what would your theme song be?)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Vacation plans and remembering if I set the alarm for the next day.
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't ever seem to have a typical Friday. I enjoy somewhere by
the water in Annapolis or checking out a place in Columbia/
Ellicott City area. I also enjoy relaxing at home or seeing a
