My self-summary
I am an easy going, laid back guy who finds joy in life from trying new things, being around friends and loved ones, getting out to enjoy nature, and pursuing creative activities (music, painting, photography, etc.)

There is just about nothing I enjoy more than just hanging out and enjoying quality time with friends and family. I like getting out to find a new hike or returning to my favorite trails. Really anything involved with getting out into nature is a great thing. Music is another love of mine. I play a little music on my own and love chilling out to a great record. I love being around creativity. I seek out those activities a lot and like to experience the creativity of others, it inspires me to try something new.

I am looking for someone who finds passion for life and in something they love to do. They are interested in sharing that passion with someone else and in learning about the passions of others. I am looking for short or long term dating, seeing if there is a spark and then how the connection evolves and grows. Personality wise I am on the more masculine side.
