I enjoy the outdoors very much and take advantage of Wisconsin beauty through hiking, biking, kayaking, camping, having a nice BBQ, or going to a ballgame. But, I'm also fond of museums, concerts, musicals, movies, a quiet dinner, time spent with friends. I think the most accurate way to describe myself is fit, but with those few extra pounds.
I enjoy a good adventure, photography, and travels....and I try to combine the three as much as possible. I've had the opportunity to travel both for work and fun. My most recent journeys have been to Southern Spain, Tanzania, Nepal, Egypt, and Borneo (separate trips with different folks). In the last ten years, I've worked in several locals, but the most 'exotic' are Iraq, Afghanistan, and Qatar. I'm usually up for a good adventure; I've para-sailed, skydived, hiked Half Dome and the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains, and I traveled by myself on a photo safari to Africa.
My match is intelligent, respectful, active, and possesses a kind heart. It'd also be nice if you have a sense of humor (at some point we must be able to laugh at ourselves). Believing in life-long learning and volunteerism is a plus.
Although I don't have kids of my own, I welcome meeting a guy who has kids (and grandkids). I enjoy being around children/teens and believe that we have a responsibility to mentor them become our future leaders.
