My self-summary
Self-summary?? I am a workaholic that is looking to break the habit and get out of the office. I want to meet a woman that knows how to have FUN. Someone with a great sense of humor and a greater sense of self. Someone that knows how to dance, is easy on the eyes and can melt me away with her smile. More importantly you have to be a terrific kisser. (I'm none of these things so to be a great couple you need to provide what is missing .. just joking..)

When I am not working I love to travel. I enjoy the out-of-doors, good wine, old single malt scotch, engaging conversation, live music, dance and theater as well as the arts, great restaurants and the company of someone that is beautiful, bright and charming ... can you be her .. oops almost forgot .. I'm a guy so there has to be time for a few beers, fishing, hot dogs at a baseball game (go Soxs) or football (da BEARS) ..

I'll do my best to be exciting, passionate and challenging.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm trying to make a difference. I own a small business. I am an Architect and I design mostly commercial and institutional projects with a focus on social services, education and recreation. The commercial work supports the work I do that improves our community .. Don't get me wrong I very much enjoy making a profit.. but I also look to work on projects that make a difference, something that will leave my mark.
I’m really good at
lets see... there are those that tell me I am a talented Architect.. that is always good to hear. Others love me for my cooking... I think of myself as an outdoorsy kind guy with a strong urban streak and artistic side.. but what I think I really excel at ... is fly fishing, kissing and being a goofball!!
The first things people usually notice about me
lots and lots and lots of curly hair,,, it use to be dark dark brown.. now it is mostly salt and pepper gray .. after the curls and the blue eyes most people notice my smile..
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books,, there is always something on my nightstand,,, currently I am trying to get through a very thick books on Einstein and Kieth Richards autobiography .. one needs a masters in math to understand Einstein .. Keith Richards is a little simpler...

Movies.. I absolutely love going to the movies.. and there must be popcorn .. My favorite is the one I'll be going to next..

Music .. I am a fan of all music as long as I hear it live. I will admit gangster rap is not really my cup of tea nor is hillbilly county or shirt kicking western my first choice.. but there are times when even a bad song about and old dog can get you humming along..

Food.. I love exploring the ethnic neighborhoods and finding the little gems and hole-in-the-walls that have the greatest food out there.. I love everything from Sushi to Mexican from Middleastern
Six things I could never do without
1. Good Health.
2. The love of Family and Friends.
3. Success in my Career.
4. The great outdoors.
5. The special tenderness of a passionate lover.
6. Enjoyment of all there is to experience in life...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where my next project is going to come from?(something always turns up). Where I am traveling to next? What new adventure will I experience? What is the true meaning of life? What am I going to cook you for dinner that will make you fall in love with me? Life is really very simple.. it always seems to work out.
On a typical Friday night I am
Enjoying a glass of scotch joking with friends.. Falling asleep in my easy chair after a busy week. Getting ready to get out of town.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I wish it was easier to keep control of my weight.
You should message me if
You love to enjoy all that there is to enjoy in this life..
I am not a coach potato.. I want to get to work in the morning and I don't have enough hours in the day to do the things I want to... but I want someone that can make me relax ,, to slow down just long enough to smell the roses..

can you do that
The two of us
