My self-summary
To describe myself succinctly in a couple paragraphs is silly & ridiculous, so lets get at it since I'm sure you've already looked at the pics which speak volumes for who we are. I enjoy the new and different challenges life throws at us from day to day. I’m finding that life is really a game less of finding what you want and more of wanting what you’ve got. What I do have is a heart of gold that I keep neatly tucked away just out of reach, safely up my sleeve. A true believer in living a healthy lifestyle and I'm continually trying to find balance in whatever I do--both at work and play. My workouts are time for me to break away, unwind and spend some time with my thoughts.

Music is the greatest single solace I have known for many things: invigoration, relaxation and romance; a song for every mood. I have somehow surrounded myself with fun-loving friends and have been blessed with an incredible family. I’m learning to improve my skills in a couple key interests I have currently: cooking and massage, both of which I’d like to take classes in before too long. I like to get out for an evening on the town for a drink or two occasionally, especially if good food is involved. I also love to sweat it out on the dance floor...not promising that I'll avoid embarrassing myself doing it, but yes I enjoy it! If you can't laugh at yourself, you'd better find somebody to laugh at (or laugh with).
What I’m doing with my life
Working too much & not playing enough. I'm a Libra & as I understand it balance is 1 of our greatest difficulties. Its been a fairly short winter but before the snow goes away I still want to get out & try snowboarding & do some skiing. And work a little less. Challenges are what make life interesting, overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.
I’m really good at
I have several gifts I've been blessed with and I have a few things I do exceptionally well in life. I'm persistently patient which is continually a good thing for me but definitely challenging considering our impulsive, must-have-it-now society. I have an adventurous spirit so I tend to seek out the fun in even the most mundane of daily routine and I really let the safety go when I get a chance to expience any near death gamble like cliff jumping, driving recklessly, skydiving, playing with the octopus or sharks while scuba get the picture.
The first things people usually notice about me
I know I smile a lot and that often makes people think I've gotten away with something that went unnoticed, but usually its pretty innocent. Very often women approach me & ask me if I know which famous celebrity I look like & out of curiosity I ask who but its usually the same person which is funny to me. Currently my hair is a bit longer so everybody loves to grab my long curly locks & give them a good tug.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some of my greatest reads have been The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein, Tuesdays with Morrie, Fox In Socks by Dr. Suess, Letters From A Skeptic by Greg Boyd, and Its Not About The Bike: My Journey Back To Life by Lance Armstrong.

I really enjoy movies like Gran Torino, Meet The Robinsons, Shooter, The Usual Suspects, Ray, Little Miss Sunshine, Closer, The Guardian, Blazing Saddles, Monsters Inc., Catch Me If You Can, and Rounders.

I listen to music very often and its quite a wide variety: Amos Lee, Ray Lamontagne, Chris Tomlin, David Crowder Band, Kenney Chesney, Ray Charles, John Legend, Mat Kearney, Everclear, Keith Urban, Michael Buble, Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darrin, Diana Krall, Norah Jones, Brandi Carlile, Casting Crowns, Josh Groban, The Bens, Alicia Keys, Rita Springer, and Johnny Lang...and a lot more.

I eat everything I can get my hands on! I've been told I should be 350 lbs. with the appetite I have but I also love to workout. I really enjoy cooking and dining out for Italian, Thai, Mexican, Lebonese; I always appreciate a tasty pizza, great burgers, good wine and whiskey.
Six things I could never do without
1. Friends & family
2. The music on my computer
3. Cooking & experimentation w/it
4. Uncontrollable laughter
5. Sunsets and sunrises
6. Hugs & kisses
I spend a lot of time thinking about
As a guy I'm genetically predisposed to putting a foot in my mouth, regardless of how much time I spend thinking about how to avoid that scenario. I think about food a lot as well as song lyrics, travel plans, J.C., how the universe can really be endless, good comedy & how to make the world a better place in subtle ways.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing with friends or family, cooking a nice dinner together and enjoying some wine before we settle in for some movies, games, an evening at the lake or a little fire in the pit. Saturday night its time to get out & enjoy a concert, discover a new restaurant or find something to celebrate with wine or whiskey.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a genetic anomaly on my body that sometimes weirds people out for 2 seconds. Its virtually unnoticeable to most people until the conversation comes about at which point it garners some giggling & pointing because of my mutation. Its not something I hide, but quite honestly its usually hidden anyway.
You should message me if
You know how. Obviously if you don't know how then please don't. I like fun & adventure, laughter & good companionship so those should be part of your plans if we're going to spend any time together.
The two of us
