Just a simple guy, living an amazing life. I decided maybe it's time to share it with someone. To be honest I'm not looking for an instant love affair, but I want something real. It'd be nice to make a best friend with the possibility of becoming more a little later down the line at the least.
Friends, family, and co-workers describe me as easy-going and likable. I think I'm pretty funny. I have a unique outlook on life so hearing how I perceive things is often humorous to most. I like making people laugh so... Yeah... I do my thing..
Trying to keep this simple, so message me if you have any questions or if you're bored and just want to say hello.
Raising my daughter!!! Pretty sure that's the most awesome thing I'll ever do!
Seriously, I'm working really towards expanding my art career. I have a regular full time as a consultant, but my passion lies with my art. I'm a graphic designer/ freelance illustrator. I do a wide variety of art related projects usually with my art friends or I'll design concept art for my motorcycle and car buddies.
Outside of my visual art pursuits, I'm getting back into martial arts. I have black belts in Aikido, Shotokan, Aikijujutsu and Hapkido. I'm currently looking to get into Sanuces Ryu Jui Jitsu and maybe some Eskrima... One day, maybe I'll compete in a kumite!!
Mostly I'm just loving life. Today I love it more than yesterday, but never more than tomorrow!!! Lol
Anything outdoorsy LOL
Competitive shooting (targets only, no living people/animals)
Art (Drawing, painting, and writing)
Self Expression (learning to play the guitar)
Driving Fast (on a track)
Trivia (Usually music and movies)
Not taking myself too seriously
Finding the "funny" in any situation
Martial Arts (Shotokan, Hapkido, Aikido, Aikijujutsu and Niten-Ryu sword style)
Listening/ Being empathetic

Honestly, I reflect a lot on how my life has changed in 4 years. I went from a man who wasn't really interested in the concept of parenthood to raising a beautiful little girl. I think about how she doesn't share my genes but she looks like me, has a lot of my mannerisms, and shares so many of my interests. The understanding that I'm shaping what she will come to see as her concept of a man... It's a responsibility that is at the forefront of everything I do..
Well there was this one time I.... yeah. You'll have to get to know me before I tell you about that.
If you are laid-back, down to earth woman who's looking for the same in a man...
If you are a football or MMA/UFC FAN!!! Especially if you are a 49ers fan, although I won't discriminate if you aren't (but depending on your team, I do reserve the right to trash talk) lol!!
If you have a great sense of humor and love to laugh.
If you think we have a lot in common and might hit it off..
If you're tired of the superficial and artificial. If you're ready for something real with someone real.
If you think your life is so great and exciting that you need a partner in crime to go off and enjoy it with... yeah... you should message me!!!
