My self-summary
How would I describe myself? A personable, down-to-earth, kind-hearted soul who loves the sound (and experience) of laughter, who is more introvert than extrovert (but the opposite among good company) and who dearly loves his two boys.

I love the outdoors and especially enjoy hiking and biking. Great Falls for the former and WOD trail for the latter.

One of my passions is soccer, and World Cup soccer in particular. I traveled to Italy in '90 and France in '98 to see the action and absorb as much of the local culture as possible in three-week stints.

Would like to think that I'm a good communicator, but past experience has shown that I'm a miserable failure at mind reading. I value open and honest communication and would hope that you do as well. Other qualities I seek in a partner are kindness, warmth, sense of humor and compassion.

I enjoy good beer and wine but don't drink all that frequently. I root for New England and DC teams equally, but my favorite team is DC United (season ticket holder for many years).

I don't watch much television, but I get it if you enjoy your shows and would be willing to share in that experience.
What I’m doing with my life
Helping raise two boys. Am now looking for a partner to share in the wonders of this life.
I’m really good at
Soccer, spelling, word games, back rubs, hugs.
The first things people usually notice about me
My blue eyes and that I'm a genuine, down to earth guy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Classics such as Animal Farm, the Harry Potter series and lately young adult fiction enjoyed with my youngest.

Movies: Shawshank Redemption, Love Actually, Lord of the Rings trilogy, Good Will Hunting, Amelie, Sound of Music, The Sting, When Harry Met Sally, Silver Linings Playbook to name but a few.

Shows: Don't watch much television, but Seinfeld is my all-time favorite. More recently, have enjoyed Modern Family, the Walking Dead, and Dexter. Especially like old British comedies such as Fawlty Towers. Continue to miss John Stewart and Steven Colbert on Comedy Central. The Simpsons was always a guilty pleasure but haven't watched in forever.
Enjoy U2, REM, The Police, Cold Play and Jack Johnson. Still love 80's music, classic rock, and old singer songwriters like James Taylor.

Food: Especially like Thai and seafood, but my palate is very expansive.
The six things I could never do without
Apart from the basic hierarchy of needs and assuming that family is a given, the six things that I could never do without are the following: good friends, laughter, indoor plumbing, i-phone's gps, changing of the seasons and intimacy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I can raise my boys to be confident, capable and compassionate men.
On a typical Friday night I am
Unwinding from the work week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You should message me if
You think we have some commonality of interests and would like to explore some more. Ultimately desire a committed, long term relationship.
