My house in Tennessee was just down the road from the Applachian Trail, and I often went hiking on it to a beautiful waterfall (Laurel Falls), a bald mountaintop (Hump Mountain), and many other amazing scenes. I feel calm and refreshed away from the city noise, and hearing/watching the animals and rushing water around me. I get as excited as a kid when I spot a beaver, lizard, or hear the splash of a fish.
I cycle around town--best part is the wind blowing through my hair. I landscape and garden, basking in the sun and enjoying the fresh air.
My name is Brad. I'm 35 and can be as mature and professional as I need to be. But hanging around with my nephew has revived my childhood silliness...wearing a goofy hat, getting into trouble playing in walmart's aisles, and exploring the children's section of the doctor's waiting room.
I had been going to school for my teaching license (PreK - 3rd grade). I subbed for 4 years in grades PreK-8. Although I like every grade, my passion is in teaching younger kids. Unfortunately, an injury working at the post office has sidelined my studies for now.
I run a business out of my home. I started it when I was 17 and have kept it up for the past 18 years.
I have a green thumb. I've had a vegetable garden ever since I was about 10 years old. I'm a good photographer and I'm a decent cook, although I'd like to get better.

I *LOVE* the beach. I should have moved there. Hot sand on my feet, waves crashing one after another, the ocean tossing me around like a rag doll--so thrilling. As the day ends and I take a walk, I like how the beach quiets down, and all you see are romantic couples enjoying the sunset.
A wide range of music--from 70s rock to today's top 40. Pretty much anything except heavy metal and country music (I listen to some country).
I enjoy reading health magazines. I love movies. I watch a lot of comedies, sci-fi, thrillers but I'm up for anything!
I have traveled to Michigan, Pennsylvania, Atlanta, Washington DC, Hawaii and South Carolina.
You just want to be friends -OR- if you'd like to date and see if we have chemistry. And having a good sense of humor is a must.
You should NOT message me if:
You smoke a lot. I can handle here and there, but please no daily smokers. I have a mild-moderate cigarette smoke allergy and it causes problems being around it.
