My self-summary
I'm a Texan, who has lived all over: Dallas, Austin, Ft. Lauderdale, Chicago and NYC (been here for 5 years...2 and half in Brooklyn). I've learned to embrace all the places I've lived and people I've met. There is a certain insight that moving over 20 times will have in your life. I'm a creative soul by nature and a gentlemen by birth. I live in Brooklyn which came around full circle with the understanding that I had my fill of the Manhattan life. I'm always trying to learn more about the people around me and embrace all the new experiences that time permits. I'm pretty blunt about most things and don't shy away from being personal and sometimes flirtatious. I live for the outdoors and long for open skies and quiet nights, which has forced me to adapt a long time ago to my concrete surroundings. I'm a pretty honest person and will call it like I see it!

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything. Next move in life. What the woman on the train is thinking about...what the old man on the train is thinking about. How to remain a good person in this city. Doing more and never getting stuck in one place.
On a typical Friday night I am
It can go one of two ways. Decompressing after a long week with a drink in hand and Netflix on TV or out with friends for a rye or two. If lucky some live music is involved.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I dressed in a one piece Playboy bunny outfit for Halloween in 2003.
You should message me if
If you are one of those girls that thinks the guy doesn't always have to make the first move.

You don't think all Texans are conservative, crazy gun toting hillbillies riding around on horses...for the most part it's a misconception :)

You don't have a picture of you holding up a cat in a dimly lit room.

You love great conversation, a glass of wine or whiskey and a home cooked meal.

You don't mind camping and the outdoors.
