I’m confident but not cocky and can hold my own in any situation. There’s nothing I enjoy more than surrounding myself with great friends and family, a good meal, several bottles of wine augmented with lively conversation and raucous bouts of laughter.
I’m an optimist/realist at heart and am a firm believer that there’s good from each experience. I still have child sense of discovery coupled with the clarity and responsibilities that maturity and life experiences bring.
I enjoy all types of music and movies (Pulp fiction & Shawshank Redemption are two that I can always watch). My passions include alpine skiing, running, hiking, boating, fly-fishing, mountain biking, reading and cooking.
My other passion is traveling abroad. I was very lucky to tour Western Europe when I was a teenager and the experience was life changing. It completely eliminated my ethnocentric view of the world. Since then I made an oath to myself to travel outside of the U.S. a priority.
In a nutshell, I’m spontaneous but not flaky and am willing to try anything once. I value both physical and emotional health. I give people the benefit of the doubt with a critical eye. My friends would describe me as unpretentious, honest, have a sharp wit, adventurous, and above all someone they can count on.
I'm all over the menu when it comes to food. Thai, sushi, Italian, Japanese, and seafood in general.
Movies other than what I mentioned above include comedies that stand the test of time - Animal House & Caddy Shack for me are the gold standard. All Coen brothers and David Lynch films.
I'm a huge music fan and enjoy all types of music from Led Zeppelin to Stan Getz. My only no-no's are Yanni, techno and the Kenny G genre.
Family and friends (my friends are family and vice versa)
