I have recently (within three months) started going to the gym to lift weights. I am enjoying this much more than I thought I would. There's something very gratifying about increasing my He-Man strength. My goal is to turn that "A little extra" over there on the right into "Average" or maybe (hopefully!) even "Athletic" at some point. That said I know all too well how frakking difficult adopting a healthier lifestyle is.
I am trying to raise my two girls with high self esteem, a healthy body awareness and intellectual and artistic achievements.
Other than music... I cook! That's probably one of my top hobbies. I don't do it as much as I used to due to working two jobs but I still enjoy it very much. Some specialties of mine include Ragu alla Bolognese (seriously good, dude) and a wonderful Alabama style bbq chicken. I am pretty much hopeless when it comes to baking however. I have a large collection of Cook's Illustrated and Cook's Country magazines that I try recipes out of.
I'm also a good conversationalist and enjoy a good talk about most any subject. I appreciate open, friendly dialogue.
I am a great dad to my two girls. I love them and they know it.
I also give a great massage.

You might like to flirt a bit.
Just to say "hey!"
You'd like someone to give you some great conversation.
