My self-summary
I once heard that "Success is getting what you want, but happiness is wanting what you get"...I think this applies to a lot of things in life. That goes for friends and partners as well. So if you are perfectly imperfect - read on... :)

Describe me? Hmmm..Depends on who you talk to but my sisters cut at it was: Creative, witty, genuine, and a bit intellectual (but not the least bit nerdy!!!). I am outgoing most of the time, but like to be introspective once in a while to keep myself honest. I love making people laugh - a good chuckle really makes my day. I enjoy building things - from remodeling to team building. Taking a risk once in a while keeps us alive and kicking!

I love to travel - nothing is better than eating a local meal with a great bottle of red wine followed by a night of dancing at a not-so-familiar place. I’ve been to many countries across Asia and Europe - Chile and Brazil are next. What countries float your boat? I’d love to share stories – I’ve got some doosies.

Spontaneity and friendliness are core values with me... I tend to strike up conversations with strangers regularly - but I tend to have a few good friends rather than spreading myself too thin. Good friends and [[family] are so important to me - hopefully with you as well.

I hope to find someone who is active, but enjoys a Friday night by the fire watching a movie... or just enjoying a quiet time talking about nothing (or everything). Ugg, I sound like I a looking for the perfect girl. NO!!! There is no perfect girl – we are all human and I know that relationships take work from time to time - but I also think that if something is right you just know it. Honesty, kindness and communication makes the difference in my book.

I hope this profile finds you well - drop me a line and let's chat if nothing else. Possibilities turn into realities with a little effort!
What I’m doing with my life
People call me a little nuts...I have traveled the world (27 countries on last count) and really see this is as the best way for me to really learn... I used to learn and enjoy books - now it is seeing the world. I export wine and food products to Asia so I get the chance to get out of dodge frequently :)
I’m really good at
Understanding people... I ask questions first and judge way later :) I'm also pretty fantastic at playing music, cooking and anything that requires physical coordination.
The first things people usually notice about me
Most people notice that I can have a conversation with anyone...and that I love a good gut laugh. I suppose a good balance of outgoing and introverted... who knows, you decide :) Humor is a mainstay for me...people usually say that I am witty, yet calm and understanding. I guess I try not to have an agenda with people ... I just enjoy good company and being myself.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Wow - too many to list. Ethnic foods of all kinds! I love anything in and around the water. Scuba, kayaking, sailing, etc. I am not a big reader, but when I read I like a variety of topics.. history, self development and of course a good Clive Cussler book once in a while.

As with most things about me, my musical tastes are varied: Jazz, Rock, Classical, Pop.... not much of "wrap" guy though.
Six things I could never do without
My sons, love, the web, music, water. I suppose I would have to add food to the list as well.... damn, life would be a bummer without a good gyro once in a while!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Oh.. this that and the other thing :) Now that I think about it...I guess I think about the world a lot.. and how lucky I have been. I'm an optimist.
On a typical Friday night I am
Wishing I had the right company :) OR planning my next trip!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I guess that speaks for itself! No comment.
You should message me if
Message me if you love travel, humor and you are ok with yourself. I want to meet a girl that is beautifully imperfect. Pretty on the inside as much as she is on the outside. Practical, but silly and crazy once in a while. Refined when you need to be, but ready to crack a joke where needed. I think people that can laugh at themselves are precious - so few and far between. Sharing a good laugh in the belly is such a bonding experience - I hope to find someone that can laugh at the little things that make life interesting and ironic. Hopefully you are a person who is real, honest and willing to share what's on your mind.
The two of us
