I try to work smarter not harder. Which is not to say I don't work. It takes quite a bit of discipline and effort to work for yourself, but the rewards are endless. I love being able to have a flexible schedule and better yet be my own boss! I do residential architecture. I also do art and try to find time to put one or two shows a year together, while doing commissioned pieces intermittently.
I am simple really. Not to be confused with "simple minded". I find joy in the little things... Well, most little things. *wink*
All I really want out of life is to work hard, play harder and love hardest. I find life has really taken off for me and really want someone who can be there by my side.
We live in California... It is too damn gorgeous in this state to not get off the couch, put down the electronic devices and enjoy the outdoors. I play on 2 sports leagues a week. 1 softball & 1 football. Very lucky to get to play over at Spartan Stadium each week! Keeps me fit and busy!
I value my friendships & relationships with everyone I come in contact with. I think integrity is a word that people don't really apply in their life. Hell, most probably have to Google the definition.
I am very close with my family and cherish that we are all friends! My pops and I go to a "bro-show" once a week or so. Ask me what it is and I will explain.
I am told that I am my parents 3rd son at times. That is just because I am a go-getter tomboy. Believe you me, I am most definitely a lady! I have the parts to prove it.
Along with that, one of the top priorities I have is to laugh. I love me a good stand-up comedy show and think it is important to be able to laugh at yourself. If you don't, I will do it for you.
Looking for a partner in crime for the long haul. Well, I guess if we end up in jail for said crime, it will be a long haul.
Just want to find that someone who is my best friend that I am crazy attracted to! Chemistry is so very important.
Have to say this: Non-smoker is a must!
I started my own company about a year ago and it has finally started to mellow out! Mainly, new homes, remodels and additions. What does that mean exactly? None of that fluffing and karate chopping pillows.
I do site measures, draft and design blueprints, pick out and spec all of the hard finished (tile, cabinetry, flooring and such), go to the city, get permits. The whole sha-bang.
I love my job and find that I have reached my goals fairly quickly.
I think passion for what you do and drive to better is an attractive quality. One that I very much encompass. Guess being humble is not one!
I definitely think that is a skill. I love seeing people smile and bringing all walks of life together through humor.
The more competitive part of me is good at and will take you down in:
Billiards & Poker. Bring it! Oh and football and baseball!
I love all types of music. My true loves are Ska, jazz and blues. Anything with a brass instrument or acoustic guitar tends to make me happy.
I love British girl singers and 8-bit music.
I like upbeat music where you can hear the lyrics.
I can do a good day of country music. I am pretty open minded when it comes to all that.
I am a huge movie lover. I am not one who really enjoys chick-flicks.

I LOVE ALL FOOD. Especially BACON. There really isn't anything I don't like.
A pad of paper & pen. For drawing and writing.
Work. I love working and creating.
Food & Water. Duh, we all couldn't live with out it.
I am going to be honest and say I am not huge on night clubs and "the scene".
I love dancing and drinking, but prefer some random local blues or rock band at a dive bar.
Don't smoke cigarettes!
Are active and fit. (Attraction is important).
Don't take yourself too seriously outside of work and can let loose, be spontaneous and think we can make one another laugh!
Have a good job and/or are working towards career oriented goals. ( This isn't a shallow money thing. I want driven people in my life)
Want a family and see that in your future.
Like food and enjoy trying new things.
