My self-summary
I'm a guy that likes to enjoy all that life has to offer and would love to share these experiences with someone special. I am athletic and try and live healthy. I enjoy my work as an exec at a cosmeceutical/pharmaceutical company. Self made man, financially secure, easy going guy who enjoys activities including cycling, hiking, cooking, wine and dabbling in artistic endeavors. Some of my ceramics and encaustic paintings are on display in galleries and restaurants. I am intelligent, compassionate, and make life an adventure. I am a doer as opposed to a spectator...physical activity is essential in my life, especially if it includes an ocean view. I do my best to be kind to myself and others and lead my life with an open heart and mind. I take my time in getting to know others and am genuinely interested in what people say and think. Being present is key for me. I grew up in a small town in Central California where hard work is admired and soft people are tolerated. I managed to get out and attend UCLA, undergraduate and graduate school. UCLA was a life changing experience for me, culturally, philosophically and intellectually.
