My self-summary
I am a patient, calm, and understanding man who enjoys an active lifestyle. I look forward to the day and what new things I will learn. I enjoy sharing my time with others. I have been successful and I have learned from my failings. I don’t think of myself as being better or worse than anyone else. All of this has helped make me a better person. I have a very positive outlook on life.
What I’m doing with my life
I work for a large defense contractor. I have been with the company for many years, and I have enjoyed my job. The company has moved me to different locations several times with my last relocation to the Washington DC area in February 2008. I was also in the Army Reserve for many years. I am now Retired. I have appreciated the opportunity to meet so many great soldiers and participate in many different assignments. I spend my free time playing golf, going to the gym, exploring the Washington DC area – to include Virginia and Maryland – and reading. I have traveled extensively, although this year I have not taken any trips outside the United States. I have learned so much about the United States by traveling to other countries. I truly appreciate all that we have here.
I’m really good at
Patience. I am extremely calm and seldom get angry or upset. I find there is no need to get angry or upset, and instead find it is better to have patience and understanding. I know I feel better this way. That being said, I do not a problem making decision or delay in getting things accomplished.
The first things people usually notice about me
How really young I look. I am very fortunate to have very good genes and a healthy life style.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like history books, biographies, and suspense novels. I enjoy reading to learn more about the world. I do not like scary movies. I would prefer to see a movie without jumping out of my seat. I watch a wide range of selections on TV, from history to sports to drama to PBS to HBO, etc. I am not a picky eater and have tried many different types of foods, from around the world. I like everything from fine dining to fast food if I’m on the run. Since I stay in shape I don’t worry about an occasional fry. I also have a wide range of music likes. I am not particularly fond of Rap, because of the lyrics more than anything else. However, I try to stay open to all types of music from the classics to more contemporary music of today.
Six things I could never do without
First. My three daughters. I have one in graduate school. My middle daughter is looking for work as an Actress, in New York City. And my youngest daughter is a freshman in college. I have been blessed that they are very good young ladies. Second. My friends. I don’t have many, but those that I have are special. Some I don’t see often, because they may not live here, but they are still my friends. Third. Reading. I like to learn something new every day. Fourth. Compassion. I tried to be sensitive to others and their viewpoints. I know I may not always agree with another opinion, but I will always respect the other opinion. I have learned so much from people with differing viewpoints. Fifth. Mobility. I like to stay in shape and exercise to maintain my vitality. I have a very high endurance level. Sixth. I love milk. I don’t know why, but it is a good comfort food for me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Being kind to others and making sure I follow through on the tasks for today. I don't dwell on anything. I find it is best not to worry. It is counterproductive. There are times to worry. But, I wait until I have enough information to make the right choice going forward.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either going out to a movie and dinner or staying home to watch TV. I may drop by the gym as well.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I wish I was smarter. I know some very smart people. I went to a "smart" high school and we were told we were smart. But, after going to college, I realize I didn't know very much. I have spent years trying to learn more. It makes me happy. I look forward to learning something new every day.
