My self-summary
I'm a laid back guy with a good sense of humor (which seems to be what every woman on the planet is looking for). I am a romantic at heart. I'm into antiques and unique things. I've owned several century homes, and love older architecture. I like independent films, especially ones with dark humor. I have a hard time finding anything I really want to see on Netflix. So on movie night, you can pick and if you bring some Jack Daniels I can tolerate a chick flick! I end up going to a lot of events through my work... everything from the theatre to the Cavs (I prefer the latter, but I'm a good sport about the former). I am a Cleveland / OSU sports fan, but not an over-the-top sports fanatic. I do like watching and attending games sometimes--Cavs, Indians, Browns & Buckeyes. I enjoy cooking a good meal for someone I care about. One of my favorite things to do is cook a romantic dinner for two together, then relax afterwards watching a movie or sitting on the patio next to the fire pit. I don't like drama or arguing. Basically, I'm a good man with a good heart---a great catch (with a few small catches)!

As for the small catches...they are my two beautiful children (that actually aren't so small anymore). I have been raising them on my own for the past sixteen years. I love being a father, and I love my kids. They are pretty cool as kids go, and won't bite unless provoked.
What I’m doing with my life
I worked for advertising agencies for many years. Following a merger, I was let go from my last ad agency. I managed to steal an account on my way out the door, and used that as the foundation to start my own advertising business. Business has been great for ten years now, and I have much more freedom and flexibility, which I love!
I’m really good at
Being a dad, finding the humor in life, having fun, my work, word games...I'll stop now before I start to sound conceited!
