I'm a straightforward, nice, smart guy who wears his heart on his
sleeve. I'm kind of introverted, but I treat others with respect,
and that's how I expect to be treated. I'm fairly old-fashioned: I
open doors for women, I show up with flowers for no other reason
than to express my appreciation, and I occasionally will send a
letter or a card just to let someone know that I'm thinking about
them. My mother raised me with manners, so I still say "thank you"
and "please" (it's amazing how many people don't say those words!)
My favorite forms of communication go as follows: 1. face to face,
2. telephone, 3. e-mail, 4. text. I'm pretty low tech, so e-mail
and text are a very distant third and fourth.
I'm low-maintenance and low-drama, and that's what I'm looking for
in a woman.
Overall, I'm a mensch. If you're looking for a nice guy who will
treat you well, I'm your guy.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a teacher.
I’m really good at
Trivial Pursuit, Scrabble, shooting pool.
The first things people usually notice about me
is I'm a genuine, kind person. I think I must have an everyman
quality about me because people often say I remind them of somebody
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like any book by Dave Eggers and just about any movie by Spike
Lee, Quentin Tarantino and Martin Scorcese. Zen and the Art of
Motorcyle Maintenance is the book that has had the most profound
impact on me.
I love jazz -- particularly John Coltrane and Miles Davis -- but I
also like rock. The best concerts I've been to include U2, Bruce
Springsteen, and B.B. King and Buddy Guy performing together at
Sandia. About the only types of music I don't like are rap and
I like almost all food, but my favorites are New Mexican, seafood,
Italian and Asian. Favorite local restaurants include Il Piatto,
Pranzo, Marisco's, Tia Sophia's, Maria's (gotta love a place with
its own margarita menu!), Gabriel's, Chow's, and the Flying
The six things I could never do without
My CD collection, books, my friends, my family, my car, and
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my future and where I want to be.
On a typical Friday night I am
at happy hour with friends or watching a Netflix movie if I'm
feeling like a night at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have appeared on the television trivia show Who Wants To Be a
Millionaire. It was an amazing experience that I will never forget.
It taught me to believe in myself and make the most of the
opportunities in life.
You should message me if
you think we have a lot in common and would like to know me better.
