My self-summary
I love living in Santa Barbara. I moved here 15 years ago from the northeast and I haven't looked back. I feel incredibly lucky to live here and I do my best to never take it for granted.

I have a great career in PR and Corporate Communications for a large tech company. It keeps me challenged and engaged and allows me to travel throughout the U.S. and Europe on a regular basis.

I'm a foodie and I'm always looking for that hidden gem, both here and anywhere my travels take me. Whether it's the amazing duck at Bouchon, drinks at the Biltmore or a great pastrami sandwich at Norton's, I'm always up for a great culinary adventure. One of my favorite things about this region is the wine and I try to drink lots of it.

I'm a Dad to precocious 9 year old girl. It's one of the greatest joys of my life and it's been amazing to watch her grow. I have her part time and I see her a few times a week. I should also note that her Mom and I have an excellent, drama-free relationship.

Music is a huge part of my world and I'm an avid collector of vintage vinyl. I love to see live music - at a bar in LA or here at the Bowl. I like lots of different music, but I'm a rock n' roller at heart.

My ideal match possesses a fair amount of emotional intelligence and actually has time to pursue a relationship. She shares my passion for food, wine, personal style and music. She's equally as comfortable in heels as she is in jeans and flip flops. She loves to travel and be spontaneous, but knows how to balance that with work and family. She can be serious when she needs to be, but also enjoys laughing at herself (and me) and finding humor in everyday life.

Could that be you?
What I’m doing with my life
By day, I type words on a computer for money. By night, I split my time between monkeying around with my favorite 9 year old, and hanging out at a number of Santa Barbara's finest eating and drinking establishments.
I’m really good at
Hmmm.... I'm a pretty good cook.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my personal style. I tend to dress up a bit more than your average Santa Barbara guy. People usually ask if I'm visiting from LA. ;)

Six things I could never do without
Obviously my family and friends are the most important aspects of my life, but as far as physical "things," well, they are:

1. iPhone
2. Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir
3. Hulu / Netflix / HBO Now
4. Arigato sushi
5. John Varvatos clothing
6. My Converse Allstars
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The next time I'll have sushi at Arigato.
