My self-summary
just moved to Portland for work and hopefully a more easy going lifestyle. I enjoy many things in life much as anyone else - travel, dining out, a good glass of wine or beer, golf, sports - being active in general, history, trying new things, people watching, running, comedy, a good movie or book - I'm pretty much up for anything from doing something new, going out to a bar, concert or any event to chillin' and making dinner, playing board games or just hanging out at home. If you want to be my tour guide the wine, beer, smoothie, coffee is on me 😊

Most of my "girl-friends/friends" wonder or ask why I am not with someone or married and I spent the last few years taking care of my folks and helping them out and prior to that I travelled a lot for work. I worked in roles where I spent 6-8 months at a time in different cities opening new offices so I did not have much of a chance to connect with anyone long-term. I'm at a good place personally and it would be great to meet someone who I connect with, act like myself and vice-versa and enjoy all the many things each other and life has to offer.

I am a blend of an old soul and very young at heart. I would say that I am fairly laid back and I can be a bit of a goofball. I am someone who is equally comfortable hitting a dive bar or getting dressed up and going to a formal event - I clean up pretty well ;)

I try to keep things pretty simple especially when it comes to dating/relationships. I would say that any baggage I have is carry-on size and I appreciate all types of personalities. I think that a great personality along with a cute smile and good sense of humor, especially sarcasm pretty much grabs my attention from the fairer sex. My dating philosophy is that I don't try to play games and think that if you like someone show it and see where it goes - I say what I mean and mean what I say and I think I am pretty fun, funny, and down to Earth
What I’m doing with my life
After spending the last few years doing contract and consulting work with a little travel mixed in I have recently rejoined the "full-time" workforce. I am in the industry and love the challenges and newness of it all! I'm also working on the side building a website of my own and hope that it grows over time and I can focus and make that a sustainable business down the road.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh, most sports, making any Carribean themed cocktail, reciting movie lines (what guy isn't), meeting people - I'm the kind of person that strangers ask for directions - all the time no matter where I'm at - I guess it's my friendly demeanor?
The first things people usually notice about me
You tell me? My eyes maybe they are blue
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A Sorrow in our Heart, Confederacy of Dunces, Movies would be Shawshank, Anchorman, Fish Called Wanda, Overboard, Godfather II, The original Indiana Jones - love the hat, Last stop for Paul! I love food, probably more of a meat and potatoes kind of guy, Thai, a good burger, Plutos salads, pork chops and applesauce, chocolate cake, apple pie, a tasty steak, anything barbecued. Music I listen to most anything save twangy country or gangsta rap.
Six things I could never do without
Food, an outlet for exercising, friends and family, the ability to explore/travel, literature, water.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Probably too many things!? Women, ideas for work or my side projects - website or writing, my family and friends, planning or ideas for travel near and far. What new series I should check out?
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually out at an event or spending time with my friends or sometimes like to just relax, hit the gym, read, watch the tube.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I would be more than happy to share "some" over a drink or two..
You should message me if
If you like what you see and what I wrote. If you're interested in getting to know me, non-stalkerish, fun, don't take life too seriously, are interested in meeting over a beverage and see if we make a connection or even if it's just as friends. Don't message me if you're interested in an email buddy - Call me old fashioned yet I have a hard time actually getting to know someone from text or emails? I am also not interested in meeting anyone who has a list of their "perfect" match and expects to get to know or figure out that someone right away to define if that guy meets said criteria. NOTE - if you do want some kind of contact please don'd do the "Someone Chose you" option I prefer to talk on the phone and go from there.
The two of us
