I'm confident and humble, a business guy with an old soul. I'm patriotic and a pragmatic gentleman that uses both sides of my brain. I drop of my recyclables on the way to the gun range. I am competitive. I challenge myself to new experiences, life is too short to be serious or boring. I am creative with a good work ethic. I strive to learn as much as I can, as fast as I can. I can be a nerd from time to time, and I volunteer for different organizations. I have a green thumb and I like to build/create things with my hands. I own my own home, and do my best to shop local. I am an artist and I like to cook. I enjoy a good beer, wine or whiskey from time to time. I appreciate independent women who can take care of themselves. I believe everyone should be treated fairly, I am pro women's rights. I am a bit old fashioned and have good morals. I like to be upfront, forward and honest.
Family and friends are a large part of my life. I try to lead a healthy lifestyle and I have a bachelors degrees in both finance/business and in art. I always have some sort of crazy business idea. I slow down to speed up, enjoy the moment and appreciate the little things. I like to watch documentaries and go out to local events. I feel at home outdoors, as I enjoy camping and hiking. I watch some sports, although I'm not too much of a sports addict. Thunder Up!
I am on here because I chose to go back to school, and spent the last five years dedicated to work and my education. I'm not big into meeting ladies at the bar anymore.. So here we are. I am always open to having new friends, but I would like to eventually find that special lady to grow old with. I want a teammate, a best friend, someone who will stand beside me.

I'm not a huge fan of watching a stranger eat. I'd rather grab a coffee, or a few drinks and then walk around an interesting part of town.
