On a typical Friday night I am
Enjoying time with my son until changing of the guard at 8:30PM every other weekend, watering the garden, catching a local band with friends or just sitting in front of my backyard firepit under the stars relaxing with a glass of wine thinking how much better it would be to share with someone special
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I hate my profile picture, always the photographer, not the subject
You should message me if
If you have enjoyed my profile and your glass of wine, are passionate about outdoor activities, healthy lifestyle, enjoy sushi, love to travel, explore cultures with the natives and not the tourists and love your children more than life itself
