Friends/Collegues would describe me as honest, loyal, hard working,
kind and funny. I am an outdoor enthusiast and have equal
appreciation for all four seasons. I enjoy golf, bicycling,
basketball, exercising, hiking, long walks, reading and traveling.
I like to stay active however, I also like to relax and enjoy a
movie, read a book or good magazine. I enjoy the aroma of freshly
brewed coffee at a variety of coffee shops. I also enjoy live
music, art museums, wine tasting, beer tasting, traveling to
professional sports events, and dining at great Italian, Chinese,
Mexican and Thai restaurants.
What I’m doing with my life
Living life in the moment. Enjoying what life has to offer, at it's
fullest. Living, Laughing and Loving.
I’m really good at
The finer details. Many of my friends have told me that I am
extremely detail oriented.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next travel destination. Day-trips/weekend get-aways, San Francisco, San Diego, N.Y.C., Caribbean Islands, Hawaiian Islands, Canada, Australia. Only time will tell. Anybody else want to share some 'travel' ideas/travel plans?
The Grand Illusion concept. As the creator of the Grand Illusion once said, "Have you ever been sitting at home watching TV (or thumbing through your mobile device) and something comes on the TV (or your mobile phone and you say to yourself, 'Hey, how come my life is not like that?'
This creator also said, "Or maybe your sitting looking at a magazine (or browsing through your smart phone) and you see some pictures (of your friends/families, or, perhaps an advertisement) and you say to yourself, 'Wow, I must really suck because my life sure is not like that.'
Have any of you ever felt this way? Yes? No Maybe so?
The Grand Illusion writer concludes, "Do you want to know why this is happening? Because this is all a bunch of bull crap. Do not go into believing from what you see at the movies or on TV (social media for that matter), I mean, come on!! All this is is somebody else's fantasy. In fact, all of this is really more like a....Grand Illusion!"
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday night: The sky is the limit. Exercising/cardio workout at
the gym, having dinner/trying new restaurants with friends, sipping
a microbrew, enjoying pistachio and/or chocolate gelato, maybe
wandering the book aisles at my area/local bookstores.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Hmm. If I tell you, then it would no longer be private.
You should message me if
The ideal woman I am looking for must be caring, chivalrous,
gracious, hard working, and positive. She is intelligent, kind, has
a great sense of humor, and is never taking life too personal. You
should be non-judgmental, open minded, passionate, and
self-confident. She also enjoys domestic/global travel and enjoys
casual road and weekend getaways. Message me if you'd rather put
your time and energy into building a relationship rather than
searching for one.
