I'm a father of three, a pilot, and a published author. I do my
best to be honest and transparent, which is sometimes harder than I
expected. (I'm not saying I always succeed.) In my view of the
world, a successful relationship takes two people who have the
courage to speak from their hearts. Despite keeping a realistic and

remain an incurable romantic until I draw my last breath. After
all, it's the hope of finding and nourishing a heart-to-heart bond
that keeps us breathing. I'm never happier than when I can make a
woman smile. Can I make you smile?

I read a lot of non-fiction and watch a mix of indies and movies

bands are Styx, Boston, and Springsteen, but I've also taken a
liking to the music of Andrew Bird, the Shins, and Dropkick
Murphys. Indian is one of my favorite foods to eat, but I'll eat
just about anything.
The six things I could never do without
Companionship, air, water, food, a warm place to lay my head, and
freedom to explore the world -- in that order!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was raised in an extremely conservative house. I've made a long
and painful effort to become more accepting of people who don't
believe the same things I do -- not easy to depart from the world
view of your family and closest friends.
