My self-summary
Just your average, hard working, educated, outdoorsy, movie-quoting, active male who craves a wonderful time, good company, good food and spontaneity. I like to think of myself as a global citizen with a positive outlook. It sounds kind of corny and sentimental, but I genuinely enjoy helping others.

Rarely does a free minute go to waste now that I'm living in The City. I am unpredictable, fun loving, warm, understanding, genuine, honest (sometimes brutally), dorky and always sporting a smile. Now that I've finished grad school I'm looking to finally take the next step in my life with the right girl. My partner in crime shall expect, but wont be limited to: laughing their ass off all the time, traveling the world, exercising, eating amazing and exotic foods, an abundance of affection, unrelenting support and compassion, and most importantly, football (jk, but seriously). Can you handle that?
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying life one day at a time. Visited Tahoe in 2004 and ended up staying for 9 years. I moved out to shanghai at the end of August 2013 to get my MBA. I left the country a humbled and different man. My post shanghai study adventures took me to Dubai for 2 months. Now that I'm back stateside I'm looking to settle into SF, but never settle. School had pretty much consumed most of my free time, which left me unavailable in the dating department so to speak. Until now.

My job is demanding yet very rewarding on multiple levels, but I insist on having a life outside of the office.

I recently crossed off another milestone after finishing my second full marathon last November. As luck would have it, my boss wants me to train him for the NYC marathon this fall, which is consuming a bit more of my time than normal but it's worth it. I'm all about challenges and crossing items off my bucket list. Thankfully, the list is vast and has plenty of room for an amazing woman.

I'm generally training for something or starting a new workout. It keeps me busy and fit but can get a bit lonely..wanna join?
I’m really good at
Camping, Traveling the world (33 countries and counting), making people laugh and anything science related. Kind of a dork I guess. I often yearn for exotic locales and rarely hesitate to jump at an opportunity to do some crazy shit....like move to shanghai.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
A lot of shit. C'mon, silly question
On a typical Friday night I am
Sipping on a fine whiskey, enjoying live music, taking a midnight hike, or reading the Senate Intelligence Committee Report on CIA torture (it's quite fascinating and fucked up). Typical isn't really my cup of tea. I basically enjoy being in the company of great friends and family, listening to music and cooking up some good eats.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i spend a lot of time and money on my traveling addiction. oh, and capitalization is for suckers...
You should message me if
You enjoy having a great time with a good ol southern boy. I purposely left my profile relatively vague with the hopes that you can get to know the real me in person
