My self-summary
Just a funny, humble, real, down-to-earth guy looking for friends, worthwhile connections, dates, and more. :)
What I’m doing with my life
I have a BA in English and History. Previously taught high school, now in Commercial Lending. I'm hoping to go to Grad School within the next year or two after I sell my house, go back to teaching, or do something ultimately more meaningful/useful with my life.

Other than that I spend my time with friends, family, and socializing. Or I enjoy quiet; intimate nights at home reading, cooking, drinking a glass of red wine (candles lit!), listening to jazz, or cozying up to a movie. I really enjoy the outdoors (hiking, mountain climbing, kyacking, camping, the beach). I enjoy working on my house or landscaping. I've been acting in local community theaters for about 16 years and have a great circle of friends there. I like to travel and explore new places. I'm passionate about recycling and responsibility to our planet.
I’m really good at
Photography, painting, reading, writing, music composition, singing, dancing, acting, cooking, and I'm an excellent kisser ... :)

Six things I could never do without
Hmm ... tough one.
1. My Family (we're super close)
2. My friends
3. Theater
4. Nature, hiking, mountain climbing, outoors in general
5. A home
6. Tea (hehe).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The square root of orange.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hmm ... well that depends. I'm either out with a group of friends, busy doing a show, or seriously happy at home with dinner and a movie. :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Uh ....
You should message me if
You're a nice, kind-spirited person who's also looking for good friends, connections, or possibly an enjoyable date.
