My self-summary
I'm kind of a mutt. Part boy-next-door, part bad-boy. Part book nerd, part class clown. Part businessman, part goof. Part bleeding heart romeo. Part pragmatic realist. I love to laugh and to make others laugh.

I love to cook. I am pretty good at it, but I never really know what is going to happen in the kitchen once I get started. 80% of the time I knock it out of the park. The other 20% I keep my mouth shut and order Pizza King or go to Woody's. I like a good dry red wine. Chilean Malbecs are my favorite.

I started taking flying lessons about a year ago and I want to finish them and get my pilot's license. Then I can say that I like to fly. I love to read but I have had a short attention span lately. I like good film and dining out. I travel for work sporadically. It comes and goes in spurts. I get to go to some neat places. I always mix business with pleasure. Someone who could travel with me occasionally would be a plus.

Who I'm looking for: She's confident without being condescending--a quiet, solid confidence beyond her years. She doesn't need to aggressively assert herself because she knows that being herself is enough. She never betters herself at the expense of others. She's wise beyond her years, which is important because I'm very open to the idea of a younger woman--but she must have her act together. She's sassy but not bitchy. Sarcastic but not belittling. She can make others laugh out loud. She understands the connection between her actions and words and the feelings and behaviors of others.

She is affectionate, sensual, and loves to give and receive attention. She dotes and likes to be doted upon. She likes to have fun. She is adventurous and willing to explore new ideas and new experiences (and, no, I am not necessarily just talking about in the bedroom--I mean in general). She's genuinely a happy person.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I am traveling a little for work. I just returned from San Fran. Never been before. Wonderful. I'll be in Michigan, Florida and Vegas in the next month (September-October). Then Dallas and Houston (I hate Houston). I travel a few months out of the year and then I spend about 80% working from home.

I just completed an article for a national magazine on the topic which is my professional expertise. My editor hates me right now. Good thing I'm trying to hit on you and not her. And, yes--I am a medium-sized fish in a medium-sized pond. Aren't you totally blown away? I am good at what I do and my industry has been kind to me. But it is a dry, boring and very non-sexy legal industry. Nevertheless, I love what I do. I like the freedom and the academic pursuit. I regularly speak on issues affecting my industry, and I like that as well. I own the two companies that I work for, so I like the ability to come and go as I please and to "be the boss." I work from home most of the time. When I want to work, I do. When I don't . . . well, I don't.

I love hiking long distances that, at the end, become more uncomfortable than fun. I like getting dirty. Yeah. Pretty much.
I’m really good at
Here's what I think I'm good at: (1) making new friends in short order in any context; (2) communicating verbally or in written words; (3) playing the piano; (4) making people laugh; (5) being comfortable and at ease in awkward situations; and (6) making my woman roll her eyes at me but secretly being totally turned on by me even though she would chew her arm off before she admitted it.
The first things people usually notice about me
My blue eyes and my sense of humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson, and Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer. Movies: Most documentaries, the Jason Bourne series, Tommy Boy, any other good classic comedy (I love to laugh). Music: I love all kinds of music. My favorite all-time band is Pink Floyd. No close second. I've been listening to a lot of Lumineers and P!nk lately, for some reason. I love seafood and anything that includes a good red sauce.
Six things I could never do without
(1) My circle of friends and family; (2) Football--kinda kidding but not really; (3) Connection, affection, conversation, and intimacy; (4) Sex; (5) Toothpaste; (6) My Executive Assistant and Office Manager; (7) Getting out of Central Indiana on a regular basis; (8) Thorazine--JUST KIDDING . . .
I spend a lot of time thinking about
(1) The next challenge--what is it?; (2) My staff and their well-being and happiness; (3) Continuing to grow my companies; (4) That Ben Affleck is a much better director than he is an actor; (5) That I should be reading a lot more like I used to do; (6) I recently in the past four months lost my biological father and my step-father, who raised me as his own since I was two years old. I miss them both and I think about them often.
On a typical Friday night I am
Lately, I am on an airplane or in an airport or a hotel. Generally, though, I am either hanging out with my friends and colleagues at Woody's in Carmel or at home reading or catching up on Breaking Bad, re-watching The Wire, trying to figure out what all the buzz is about Game of Thrones, or maybe cooking dinner for way more than one person, even though I'm cooking for one . . .
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
During my sophomore year in college, one of my fraternity brothers in undergrad walked in on me while I was masturbating. We don't talk about that too much. Funny how at 19, it seemed devastating and I would have sworn that I would go to my grave never admitting to it. Funny how at 40, it's just hilarious and now, if I do it four times in a day . . . well . . . I'm kinda proud!

If you are offended by this, then we're not for each other. If you rolled your eyes and thought "OMG he is such a dork!" then we should talk.
You should message me if
If you made it through my long-winded and wordy profile and rolled your eyes or giggled at least once, but still kept reading--then you should contact me.
The two of us
