So my answer to the typical question of ‘where are you from?’ is slightly more complicated to answer than most, having moved around a fair amount. But the quick highlights range from England & Belgium for over a decade, then on to NYC, a spell in CT for prep school, a little turn in Ohio then a fantastic five years in Chicago back to NYC and now to the DC area… so far it's been great getting to know our Nation's Capital more. All this moving around has pretty much left me with me no distinctive accent (other than when I travel outside the US of course) but I can whip out an English or Irish accent (along with some others) on demand if need be... ha.
The most fulfilling and exciting part of moving and traveling around so much is being exposed to a variety of people and opportunities. When it comes to sports I would much rather be playing them than watching it on TV (except for Team USA at the World Cup) and I have played my fair share of them. The latest sport I've been throwing myself into is golf and I am totally hooked but soccer, tennis and squash have been main stays for many years. I also thrive on releasing my creative energy where for the most part of my high school and college career I would channel that energy into ceramics (wheel throwing to be exact) and I have been able to get back into it in spurts here and there but miss doing it on a regular basis.
In terms of me and what I am looking for, compared to most guys I actually don’t have a ‘physical type’ that I gravitate towards, naturally there needs to be a level of attraction to find each other sexy but chemistry for me depends on a few other facets. The girl who grabs my attention the most, is someone who can smile with their eyes, whose laughter can be heard all around the room, holds their end of the conversation with almost anyone and ‘gets down’ on the dance floor (is there a non-cheesy way of saying that?) I am looking for someone who finds it exciting to cover a lot of ground in a weekend between friends and activities where there may be multiple wardrobe changes ranging from shorts/t-shirt by the water, onto some sort of athletic attire then perhaps followed by something more dressy just to mix it up. Seems so simple.... right?
