My family is very important to me as they give me so much love and support. Most of my family now lives in Maui, so I'm lucky to have such a beautiful place to visit them. I have been visiting Maui since I was around 7 years old as my Aunt and uncle moved there about 25 years ago. Now my mom, dad, brother, sister-in-law, niece, and nephew all live there too. My niece and nephew are such amazing kids who just melt my heart, thus I try to visit as much as I can. I would move there in a heartbeat if it were not for the career that I have chosen.
I am a professional opera singer and have been singing professionally for the past 6 years. When I heard opera for the first time I was incredibly moved and taken away by the power, beauty, and expressiveness of the music. It warmed my heart and soul so much that I have made it my goal to instill with my singing those same incredible feelings in others that I experienced. I have been singing since I was a little kid, but I also grew up playing sports as my entire family is very athletic.
In High School I played football, baseball, and did a year of wrestling. I still love tossing the football around or putting my mitt on and playing a nice game of catch.
I adore animals, especially big dogs, and have been called a dog whisperer. I would maybe like to one day have a ranch full of animals, including horses, goats, chickens, big dogs, small dogs, and a domestic cheetah if I could :)
As a person, I am thoughtful, funny, appreciative, supportive, silly, caring, sensitive, gentle, kind, and generous to the people who are important to me. I do have somewhat of a playful mischivious side though too. I am also somewhat of an old soul. I'm the kind of guy who people feel totally comfortable sharing personal things with, so perhaps people see me as a non-judgmental good listener. I seem to play unofficial therapist a lot. I have many talents and can pretty quickly pick up anything that interests me. I love to cook and to share good food with good company. I love anything that is creative, emotive, positive, and stimulates the senses. Career wise, I'm ambitious, persistent, driven, confident, and focused.
As far as a relationship, I know that I would enjoy the company of a special someone with whom to experience life moment by moment and create wonderful lasting memories together. So that's me in a nutshell, but if you would like to know more, which hopefully you do, then don't be shy and send me a friendly message.
