My self-summary
I'm a busy guy who is looking for someone with whom to share my awesomeness. What's that? Oh, modesty, right... Guess I should have opened with that.

I enjoy all the standard stuff (travel, eating out, movies, theater, etc.) but also like making a difference in the world through volunteering, environmentalism and investing in the lives of those close to me. I would love to meet an intelligent, compassionate and outgoing person and build a friendship that could lead to more. If we click and the chemistry is there, then all the better!

My friends have told me that I am patient, loyal to friends and family, dependable, caring, sincere in actions and words, a good listener, quick-witted and easy-going. Who am I to argue?

A question on a test once asked who I felt had influenced me. The answer is a good glimpse into who I am, so it seems appropriate to share it here. My maternal grandfather helped define my morality and taught me many of life's great lessons and my great uncle helped to foster a knowledge and understanding of science, technology, poetry and writing at a young age. His influence helped to shape my aptitudes. My mom taught me the value of compassion and generosity and Grandmom taught me to be thankful for the little things in life like a full plate (which had to be cleaned before leaving the table).

Lest all this sound too much like one of those infomercials from late-night television, I can make mistakes with the best of them. However, I try to be quick to recognize (and admit) when I'm in the wrong. I have a positive outlook on life and appreciate that characteristic in others. Of course everything about life is not perfect. However, adversity can be a good opportunity to learn to appreciate life's simple pleasures and gain a greater understanding of oneself.

More about who am I looking for: Balance is very important. Work some, play some, laugh some - basically experience life from all sides (physical, intellectual, spiritual, emotional). Being kind, compassionate, funny, intelligent and a good conversationalist is attractive. Do you have an easy-going personality but still know what you want out of life? Are you outgoing and genuine? Are you as comfortable at The Fox dressed to the nines as you are camping out in a pair of old jeans? (Yes, this may be cliché, but adaptability still ranks up there for me.) Do you like spontaneity and last-minute trips to places near or far but still like to spend an evening at home catching a good movie? I would love to get to know you!

I am easy-going, happy, and multi-dimensional.
What I’m doing with my life
Working, dabbling in real estate, spending time with family and friends - generally, enjoying the journey.
I’m really good at
not being good about talking about the things at which I excel. In fact, I consider myself to be more of a jack-of-all-trades kind of guy. One need not know everything about everything, only know someone who has expertise in areas where you do not. That is one reason I have a really diverse group of friends from many different walks of life. You get so many more insights into situations, and life in general, that way.
The first things people usually notice about me
People tell me that they feel comfortable around me. I've had many people tell me some pretty deep stuff shortly after meeting me for the first time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I am a culinary Casanova - there's not much that I won't at least try. I love Thai, Italian, Mexican, Indian, Greek, Chinese, sushi (though not the hard-core stuff - not a big fan of overly "fishy" flavors), American, soul food, etc.

My tastes are typical guy here. Does it explode and/or involve space or robots or gadgets? If so, I'm all over it. However, I do like some drama movies (The Shawshank Redemption being a notable entry in that list). Family movies can be fun, and even a romantic comedy here and there. I'm open to films with subtitles and more "artsy" content, though I don't actively seek those out.
Six things I could never do without
Food, car, warmth (of the caloric nature), friends, family, vacation

Love, warmth (of the interpersonal variety), friendship, sense of purpose, that awesome feeling when you take the first bite of something really delicious, hope
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Lately, I've been spending time thinking about time. Three close friends have lost their fathers recently. That tends to make one introspective about how fleeting our time here is and what we need to focus on while we can.

Not So Deep:
-- finding new hole-in-the-wall restaurants
-- finding a safe place to recycle e-waste
-- photography
-- my next vacation
-- if I'm ever going to get a vacation
On a typical Friday night I am
On a typical Friday, you may find me heading out for a weekend trip to FL, catching up on movies, hanging out with friends or eating at one of my favorite restaurants.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I had a mullet in high school. Rod Stewart had nothing on me. :-)
You should message me if
...you feel like you'd like to get to know more about me. I like for initial meetings to be light and fun as well as informative, so we could just as easily chat over a cup or coffee or tea as via email.
The two of us
