It's time to talk about me, not something I’m very comfortable with but here goes. I'm in my early forties (did I just admit that?). I've lived life, I've had fun, I've chased my dreams, I've had ups and downs but I have always come out the other end smiling and looking forward to the next adventure. If I had to describe myself I would say that I’m intelligent, witty, caring, loyal, easy going, and adventurous. I’m very laid back and I tend to go with the flow, however I can take charge when necessary. I try not to take myself to seriously, and I’m always looking for the positive side of every situation. I have tons of friends and I tend to make friends everywhere I go.
I'm healthy and happy, my weight goes up and down sometimes but I've got a decent build and I'm very active. My love for fitness has been rekindled in a big way over the last few months, I’m in the gym at least 5 days a week, and I study and teach Kung Fu. I also run, I’m planning on running several 5 and 10Ks this summer, the Warrior Dash for the second time, and I’m training for the Tough Mudder and possibly a half marathon either later this year or next year. I’m looking forward to trying out Crossfit.
I try and spend as much time in the summer on my motorcycle or on the river, I actually live right on the Fox river. I love boating, and riding waverunners, pretty much anything on the water makes me happy. Nothing is more fun than bar hopping on the river on a hot summer day.
I have tons of hobbies, and I'm always looking for new challenges. I play guitar and a little piano; I actually majored in music when I was in college the first time. I play poker pretty seriously when I can. I love movies and music, my taste in both varies quite a bit, I don’t know if I could nail down a favorite type. I love to cook and I’m good at it, I also love trying out new restaurants and different types of food and I love red wine. I was a bartender for many years so I can make some killer cocktails, but I don’t drink all that often.
I'm very independent, but I love having someone to share my adventures with. I've had some great long term relationships in the past with wonderful women, I'm not afraid of commitment, but I'm not in a hurry. I'm defiantly looking for that someone special.
