I'm a recovering attorney (got my 10-year chip last year!) turned real estate developer and now investor. I'm smart, educated, outgoing and I don't take myself too seriously. I know a little bit about and am interested in a lot of things, which makes me a good conversationalist, fun at parties, and good at Trivial Pursuit. I've been shaving my head for well over 10 years and at this point I have no other hair-styling options. I'm compassionate and a good listener. I'm moderately athletic, stay fit at the gym, doing yoga or running on the boardwalk, but I'm certainly not obsessive about it. I enjoy snowboarding and should probably be surfing. I have an encyclopedic knowledge of 80's music, although I admit I'm a little weak on the mid-80's hair bands (music really should have guitars and/or horns, preferably both). I have a young son from my previous relationship who lives with Mom (we're on good terms) and who I see often - he is an absolute joy. I am generally happy, upbeat, have a great smile, and have been called "cute" and even "charming".
I'm passionate about travel, scuba diving and photography and I get to combine all three as an underwater photographer. This has the distinct advantage of taking me to lots of warm, tropical places and when I'm not diving, I'm out exploring as many other exotic and photogenic locations as I can get to. You're more likely to find me at some remote temple or some crazy festival (yes, I've been to Burning Man) rather than lounging at some "all-inclusive" resort or just lying on a beach somewhere (besides, we have nice beaches here). Although there's certainly nothing wrong with an adult beverage overlooking the ocean at sunset!
I'm looking to date with an eye towards a committed relationship. I have a ridiculously amazing life and I'm looking to create something equally amazing with the right woman, someone to share and explore the world with. Someone who's smart, educated, warm, and fun with a sense of adventure and play (like me). Brains and sass are definite pluses - cute would be nice too. Someone who's up for everything from an African safari or a weekend in Napa to an art opening or a back yard barbecue with friends. Or maybe even just making dinners in and snuggling on the sofa in sweats with a DVD.
But enough about me - how about you? What are you passionate about? How can I support you in that? What's your idea of a good team?
If any of this sounds at all intriguing, please send me a note and let's chat. Maybe meet somewhere casual and fun, hang out for a bit and see if there's chemistry - which after all is really what it's all about. Hey, it's just a cup of coffee (or better yet, a glass of wine) - no matter what, I can guarantee good conversation!
OK, I have to admit I've done pretty much nothing on this site for the last year, so I apologize to those I haven't gotten back to. But I had a hell of a time traveling to some amazing places and taking some great pictures, both below and above the water. Let's start dating and go somewhere really cool in 2014!
