My self-summary
I guess this is the place where I rattle off a list of qualities about myself and hope that something catches someone's eye. (Do you women out there actually read these profiles? Or ever make the first move based on what read?) So here goes: First off I have a wonderful, percocious 7 year old daughter (she is the cute one in the pics of both of us :), and although she lives with her mother, she is my world. So if you do not like kids, I am not the one for you. I can be silly at times but serious and passionate when the situaution calls for it. I like the outdoors and being active (hiking, rollerblading, running, playing hockey are a few of the things I do to keep in shape). I can also be perfectly happy staying in on a rainy day and watching a movie or reading cuddled up next to someone special. I am adventurous and I love traveling and being immersed in new cultures or places. I also love learning new things and bits of trivia. Museums are a favorite of mine. I feel that if you are not learning, whats the point of life? I also love cooking and travelling. I love music of all kinds. I have a pretty eclectic mix on my i-pod right now. My friends would describe me as a warm, caring, old fashioned, romantic, chivalrous guy who is supportive and a good listener. These are just a few of the things that make me who I am. If you want to learn more drop me a line. (Disclaimer: I have never climbed Mt. Everest or bungee jumped from a hot air balloon whilst being naked and set on fire)

I am looking for someone to enhance my life, not complete it (I have a pretty full life that I am looking to share with someone), someone who would like to go on cool adventures together and most importantly someone who I can be my quirky, random, lovable self around. The right woman has to be adventurous, active, want to try new things and be able to keep up with me. Anybody who thinks life is a spectator sport need not respond. I want someone who will respect me for who I am as much as I would respect them. I want someone that I am physically attracted to but looks will only get you so far. I also want someone who can mentally stimulate me too. I know this is a tall order but if you are out there.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to get the people around me to smile and laugh. Creating, teaching, inspiring, and learning; all through the eyes of a six year old. Being the best dad I can be.
I’m really good at
Not to sound arrogant or anything but these are what people have told me i am good at. Photography, playing hockey (and keeping all my teeth while doing so), cooking, giving support to people in time of need, being a dad, Lots of other things!

And kissing (cheesy I know, but I've actually been told this. You can let me know what you think sometime ;)
The first things people usually notice about me
I have been told that people notice my eyes and my smile first.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I am an avid reader, movie watcher and music listner so it is hard to narrow down my favorites. I might be able to give you a top 5 in each genre of movie. On my Ipod right now I have everything from J.S. Bach cello suites, something from John Williams and James Horner, Sting, Metallica and Megadeth, oh yeah, I can't forget Frankie, Dean and Sammy. Right now I am reading Homer's Odyssey. I think after this series of books I will switch to a history book or horror. And I always have a graphic novel lying around somewhere (OK. I admit I am a bit of a book nerd). I admit that I don't watch much tv so I am behind in what shows are out there. The new season of Family Ties is starting soon right?
The six things I could never do without
My daughter (I could really do without anything else, but not her)
Art (of every kind)
Loving and being loved in return
My Family
Good friends
Being able to color outside the lines.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How my munchkin is doing.

Where she learned the Nationwide Insurance jingle, and why I didn't get video of her singing it to the entire pizza place the other night.

What my next adventure is going to be.

Why this dating thing has to be so hard (Seriously, If we go on a good date where you had fun and I had fun, lets go out again. What's so hard about that? Am I destined to be single for eternity?)

The fact that my next relationship is out there somewhere and she is doing something at this exact moment.


Whats for lunch?

Swimming pools (bonus points if you know what movie thats referencing)

My next vacation.

Why people are a dating site if they are 'seeing someone' already.

(I think a lot!)
On a typical Friday night I am
having dinner with the greatest girl in the world! (sorry ladies but my Friday nights [early evenings, at least] are already reserved by the special little lady in my picture. :) I'm generally free after that though.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I look absolutely nothing like Brad Pitt with my shirt off. Hard to believe, I know.
You should message me if
You aren't (too) flaky, or on the run from the mob. You think you 'get me' based on this brief description (or want to). You want to know more about me. You want to have a fun, romantic night out with a great, caring guy. - or - if you made it down this far on my profile :)
