My self-summary
My philosophy on life is to put the important things first, such as family, friends and people. At the same time I have a great deal of interest in current events in the world. In addition I am well traveled, having visited some fifteen plus countries in Middle East, Europe and Asia. Also I am well versed in a number of subjects, enjoy literature and going to plays. Training for competitions, such as Triathlons, is also another major part of my life. All above is me, but at my core I am father raising my two lovely daughters. So if any of the above strikes a chord with you, please feel free to send me an email.
What I’m doing with my life
My two little girls live with me most of time, so that means a major part of my life is spent being dad. When I am not being dad, I compete in olympic triathlons and train year round. I'm currently on the path to recovery, after a couple of injuries.
I’m really good at
First my friends tell me I'm a good father. Also I've been told I am a great conversationalist and socializer. I've seen and experienced a fair amount of the world. The rest your suppose to find out through dating, beside if you ask a room full of family and friends you would get a lot of different answers.
The first things people usually notice about me
My friendly smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
"Crucible" I know its a play "The Prize" "All Quiet on the Western Front" "The World is Flat" "Freakonomics" Great book, "While Europe slept" "Guns, Germs, and Steel" Great Book, etc.......
Movies, i love them, even the bad ones! Just right off the top of my head I enjoyed the ones below.
"Social Network" it was a really good movie, "Lord of the Rings" "Saving Private Ryan" "Schindler's List"
Chinese, German, Italian, you name it I'll eat it, except Sushi and Ethiopian. I don't like the tast of raw food and Ethiopian food always looks like someone pureed it.
Six things I could never do without
1. My children
2. My family, Mother, Sister, Brothers
3. My Friends
4. My running shoes, bicycle and swimming goggles
5. My books
6. The latest geopolitical news
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Fun things to do with my small amount of free time. Setting up my training schedule for the next year. Also the geo political and global economic ramifications of light crude price volitality in the international markets.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually after taking one daughter out to shop and the other for dance class its a movie at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am not willing to admit to anything private about my self online.
You should message me if
If your easy going, like to laugh and have a good head on your shoulders.

Out of frustration from dating experiences on Okcupid I have decided to make a list of reasons why someone should not contact me. Unfortunately with Internet dating, people have lost the common curiosity and politeness that use to be an integral part of face-to-face dating.

1. If your profile has any factual inaccuracy about yourself, please do not contact me.
2. If you place pictures up that are a decades old, or misrepresent who you are, do not contact me.
3. If we set up a time to meet for coffee, lunch or dinner I do not want your phone number. We simply can meet at a public location through okcupid emails. I do not want to give out my number to anyone until I meet you face to face.
4. Meeting someone face to face is the only way to really know if you might like each other. Lots of emails, texts and even phone calls really are a waste of time. Simply put, if giving you a free cup of coffee, lunch, or dinner can’t get you to sit there talk to me face to face then there is no hope.
5. Far to much emphasis in modern day America is put on the first date. The first date is suppose to be easy going and fun event, its an interview for a possible second date. It’s not an interview for long-term dating, or even marriage, that should naturally come through getting to know each other.
6. I have a very busy schedule working full time and taking care of my girls. When I setup a time to meet someone it means I have to find childcare. Please have the common courtesy to give at least 24 hours notice if you can't make it.
The two of us
