My self-summary
Ok... here goes... yep... I am married. Technically. And we live together... again... raising our daughter... together. Everything here minus a few little tweaks, was written when we were separated and I was looking for a whole new life. I had to realize that my life is not my own anymore and being the best Dad is what I have to do from now on. It is who I still am and always will be. However... there is still "this other guy" you see below thats still in here too but seems to have gone missing. He was such an awesome dude! Wicked funny, smart, a bit goofy, but a lot of fun to hang out with. Not too shabby a looking guy either! And... a hell of a kisser... and kinky as hell! God, I miss him. If you see him, know of his whereabouts, or think you can get in touch with him... do not call the authorities! Just give me a shout and maybe we can nab him together...

I am looking for someone that can accept me as a whole as I will do the same. I am very open-minded and adventurous. I am very easy going and caring but can be complex at times. I have a very light side and a pretty dark side. However, I am neither a doormat nor abuser, respectively. I feel that makes me a fairly well rounded and balanced person. However, I am far from perfect and dont expect anyone else to be either. I am experienced and versed enough in this worlds nature to have become a thoroughly jaded cynic yet choose to retain that child-like curiosity about the universe to see a life filled with optimistic opportunities within every possibility. While my feet are firmly planted, I still feel the joyous yearning to always reach for the stars with gleeful abandon. Overall, I am attracted to intelligence, humor, charisma, empathy, and a big heart. I dont expect you to spout string theory in quatrains as long as "Kardashian-esque " isn't your role model. I believe one should have a healthy sense of class, grace, and self respect. I have a very wicked sense of humor which can be witty, dry, morbid, or sarcastic depending on subject matter and mood. And while nothing is really sacred, I try not to be crass or gross. I much prefer intelligent humor over your classic middle school fart jokes but I love all kinds (dammit, they are still funny).

There is nothing greater than unconditional love and respect and feel that the process of finding common ground is what quintessentially builds a relationship which makes it all the more fun. Isn't that the whole point of all this anyways? I have loved and lost but am willing to get back out there time and again to do what it takes to find the one with that certain sparkle in their eye. The one that ignites that rush of excitement when the right chemistry is "Snap! Crackle! and Popping!" again. Like my sister says, "Put on your big girl panties and just do it!" And she's absolutely right.

I have been through plenty so I am incredibly hard to frighten. I was a Combat Medic with a specialty as a Medical Photographer in the military which means I did a lot of CSI/Forensics work and have experienced quite a bit. Because photography is one of my deepest passions, outside of my family, I honestly believe in the balance of both function and form in everything. Image is important but substance is paramount for longevity. While I am drawn to beauty and see it in everything, I enjoy exploring the contrasts between the deep weathered and aged textures in abandoned buildings every bit as much as the soft gentle tones of an exquisitely beautiful sunrise. I love the outdoors and appreciate the warm sun on my face on a beautiful Tampa Bay day every bit as much as the occasionaI 3 AM Walmart excursion.
What I’m doing with my life
I own my own photography studio and work with a lot of veterans and non-profit groups all the while building my business. I finished one of my degrees and am working online at Nursing school at CSU San Marcos back in Cali.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
unique ways of getting myself into lots of trouble….
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing the same thing we do every night, Pinky... trying to take over the world! But, every other weekend you may find me out teaching my daughter speed skating at the roller rink, exploring the Children's Museum, playing at the Safari Park, launching model rockets, or ruling the galaxy as father and daughter. We alternate that with shopping, getting our nails done, and generalized mayhem whenever posible...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Trust me, you would never guess unless I told you ;)
You should message me if
You are open minded and feel there could be a real connection between the two of us.


-You want a man that truly understands. Someone that has flown like Icarus upon the dizzying thermals of unbridled and unchained passion with his wings of wood and wax into that blinding Sun of unconditional Love. A survivor of that rocketing plummet from those stratospheric heights to the Marianas-like depths of that ungraceful fall. A returning champion with that intimate knowledge and yet, the Quixote-esque courage, passion, and desire to rebuild those wings. Will you be the one to pass me that hammer and saw?


-You will be honest with me and, most importantly, yourself about what you really want. I know who I am and what I am worth. I am perfectly happy to wait for that someone special that truly deserves me. I do not NEED to share myself with anyone. I want to. Know the difference. I do. I have more to offer than you may ever know. I will lasso the moon and present it on bended knee for the right person. Recap: I am frugal but definitely not cheap. However, I am neither shallow enough or rich enough to want or need to be your "Sugar Daddy" du jour. Move on. Not bitter, just experienced.


-You are not super critical and judgmental of yourself or me. If you have a healthy sense of yourself and find yourself attractive enough mentally, emotionally, and physically to do this with me. And vice versa. I've been close to a LOT of women in my life so I truly do understand. Honestly, I have my quirks and body stuff just like you do so I really do not place a lot of emphasis on looks but please be relatively fit and healthy. Look, I am not sitting here in my briefs by the red phone waiting on pins and needles for the call to go model them, but I am in decent enough shape. I simply ask the same in return. My preference is someone that is nice, caring, and height weight proportionate to boot thats not a neurotic mess if they had 3 extra calories that day.


-Understand what the words "consider" and "possibly" mean and for the love of all thats holy, don't take all the questions and tests here totally seriously. We are both individuals, not wholly the sum of the random 1's and 0's that represent us here.


-You have a great sense of hum-ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOTOAD!
The two of us
