I am a young, single professional living in the KC metro. I've never been married nor do I have children. I'm a good guy looking for a healthy relationship.
I am well rounded and like good conversation. I'm a regular at first Fridays and enjoy the arts.
International travel, foods and culture are a favorite of mine. I've climbed the Eiffel Tower, walked the Great Wall, explored the Forbidden City and spent a summer in Berlin. Fun adventures. I'm often just happy to be at home.
I'm a Big Brother and am an active worker in a local community garden. I'm not a big fan of chain restaurants and prefer to support local businesses.

A smile... although I don't photograph well! You'll usually find me
with bright eyes and a grin.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a foodie and am always up for trying new things. In China I

heard of dragon fruit? I enjoy Italian, Chinese, German, Thai,
Vietnamese... love of international cuisine.
Why isn't there a favorite wine category?
I belong to a serious book club and we have been meeting monthly

Eden. Loved it. My tastes in books are quite broad.
Music... wide open to just about everything, except rap. (Is that
really music?) I enjoy opera, the symphony and live performances at
