My self-summary
My friends often describe me as positive, pretty, tenacious, active, and loyal (I’ve got a pretty great group of people in my life)! I have had my share of amazing adventures as well – and here’s my philosophy about them: If you don’t have a moment when you question the wisdom of what you’re about to do or what you’ve just begun to do, then it’s not an adventure. Here are some other fun facts:

• Am a “Happy Blue” snow skier, fearless water skier and newly hatched wake boarder
• Love biking for fun and transportation and I've still got a century ride to check off on my bucket list
• Love to bake cookies and always use the original Tollhouse recipe if I'm baking chocolate chip ones
• Created my own consulting business from the ground up
• Make a mean grilled eggplant and can stir-fry with the best of them
• Am a passionate and extensive traveler and still have Tibet, Turkey and an African safari on my wish list (although I would not mind going back to Paris, either!)
• Love cheap ethnic food as much as I like dressing up to go to Les Nomades or Grace.
• Spent 3 weeks in Nepal, trekking and looking for tigers
• Love yoga, walking, biking and staying fit.

Most of these things, though, would be more fun with someone great – like you.
What I’m doing with my life
Planning my next trip; finding a new bike route; having dinner with friends; walking along the lakefront; playing with Words With Friends; reading on my back porch; picnicking at Ravinia; seeing a play; listening to NPR.
I’m really good at
Waterskiing, marketing, baking cookies, growing cherry tomatoes, staying in touch with friends near and far.

I really look like my pictures!

Simply It (Vietnamese), Tarantino’s, Boka, Sola for brunch, Flo, the little spit of land beyond the boat house at North Ave Beach, the bike path behind the Shedd, the water taxi between Navy Pier and the Museum Campus, view of Chicago River from el.

I read a lot: 2 papers/day (Trib, WSJ Mon-Sat, Sunday NYT). I subscribe to Inc, Fast Co, Nat'l Geog Traveler mags. I love my book clubs – both of them (one is coed). Recent favorites: Art of Fielding, Orphan Master’s Son, Destiny of the Republic.

You should message me if
You’re one of those men whose friends think he is terrific and they maybe wonder why you haven’t been snatched up! You’re considerate, smart, a do-er, funny, cute to me, and passionate about life. We’d enjoy doing small, unassuming things for each other. Like me, you are comfortable with yourself, live a healthy lifestyle, value your friends and family, and are looking for a true partner. I’m looking for a guy I can call to say “Hey! It’s me…” and then chat together about our day.” You too?
The two of us
