Professionally - I am a vice president at a dental lab, we specialize in creating dental crowns and bridges. Previously, I worked in the Home Improvement industry for many years. My original passion was to be a Photographer, I never became a professional photographer, but photography has become a great hobby.
While I may be very serious during business hours, I know how to enjoy life to the max the rest of the time. I'm pragmatic but spontaneous. Life is too short to waste any of it so I tend to always seek out new activities. If I read or hear about something or someplace interesting, I usually start planning a visit, trip, or night out based on what I read or heard.
Food and travel are two of my true passions. Life has to be fun and I make sure to find it almost everywhere I go. If I plan a surprise weekend get-a-way, I will take care of every detail. I like going to great restaurants and I like hole-in-the-wall places with great food. Hole-in-the-wall places seem to always have the best Margaritas. Good company can make what would have been a mundane experience a great time. Cooking is also one of my hobbies, and I have some great recipes. I really enjoy cooking, it is a nice way to unwind. Generally I consider myself to be very open to new experiences and will try almost anything once.
I have 3 kids, who are all on their own. My oldest son is in the Air Force, and my 2 younger kids are both away at college. When my 2 younger kids are home, my son lives with me, and my daughter lives with my ex-wife. I have intentionally preserved a great relationship with my ex-wife because she is a nice person and for the benefit of our kids. As a Father of a daughter, I know how I hope she is treated in a relationship, and this is how I therefore treat women.
I love music. I go to many concerts, whether they are at places like the Honda Center or the House of Blues, or in a local bar. I used to play the drums, and I still have my set, but now I play just for fun.
Since I used to manage people who build displays for a living and I visited the job sites a few times a week, I have learned the basic construction trades and I can usually fix and install most things around the house, so I spend a good amount of my free time tackling handyman activities at home. It is another great way to unwind.
About the woman that I hoping to find:
While my goal is to find a relationship, for now I would like to get to know you. When the right person comes along, I believe in total trust and loyalty. It is important for me to know that we have each other’s backs. I believe in earning someone’s trust and loyalty over time. I hope that you can completely be yourself around me and that I can be myself around you. I sometimes have a silly and sarcastic sense of humor, so I hope that you find this OK, or at least tolerable! Regarding relationships, I have found out that just listening to each other can fix most problems.
I look forward to hearing from you!
