I've climbed up the Eiffel Tower, paddled the canals of Venice, drank beer in the gardens of Munich, and retraced the US troops' steps in Normandy. I've camped in the Rockies, celebrated the 4th of July at Mt. Rushmore, been swanky in SoHo NY, NY, and taken on the challenge of being an undercover beer enthusiast in the wine-loving countryside of Sonoma and Napa Valley. Yeah, I've been places. I'm going places. And, I'm looking for someone to take places.
I'm most passionate about living a healthy life. I'm a firm believer in challenging your mind and body - only then can you enjoy the relationships of those around you. People generally notice my laid back nature. On some rare occasions people confuse my easy going personality for complacency, but that is the furthest from the truth. I'm extremely driven when accomplishing the goals I set for myself. I can be very competitive, which contrasts from my laid back persona. Playing sports all of my life I've developed a competitive edge, which I believe is useful in other aspects of my life.
I'm an analytical person. I try to discover deeper meanings and intentions in presentation, interactions and relationships. I believe this is a result of the industry I'm in, Marketing. It's a blessing and a curse. Joking aside, I do love deep and intelligent conversation ( who doesn't?! ) But, I do know when to put all that "academia-speak" away and break out in a dance, preferably the Harlem Shake. Remember that? Thank you 2001. :-)
I'm open to talk about anything. And, I mean anything. I think relationships can only be as successful as yours and your partner's level of communication. If I'm going to share my life with someone, I'd like to be able to tell her anything; I'd like her to be able to come to me for anything, as well. So, I'm usually not shy, reserved and/or ashamed to share any aspects of my life. Communication is my number one priority in a relationship.
On a lighter note, and in no particular order, I enjoy my family, music, sports, wine, and food. If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask. In all honesty, I'll probably respond.
