My self-summary
I believe the single most significant decision I can make on a day-to-day basis is my choice of attitude. It is more important than my past, my education, my bankroll, my successes or failures, fame or pain, what other people think of me or say about me, my circumstances, or my position. Attitude keeps me going or cripples my progress. It alone fuels my fire or assaults my hope. When my attitudes are right, there is no barrier too high, no valley too deep, no dream too extreme, no challenge too great for me. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it.

I am looking for someone who shares the same view, and is looking to experience, enjoy, and appreciate life. There are a lot of wonderful and great things out there, what better way to experience them than with your best friend(s) and a true love!

I am originally from MN. I went to college at Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa. I currently live in Iowa and I am involved in business (jeez sounds like I am in a relationship or something already lol..). I pride myself on my hard work ethic, unique perspective(s), and getting things done. If you do the things you need to do when you need to do them then SOME DAY you can do the things you want to do when you want to do them. With the right attitude, anyone can become very good at what they do. I am very good at what I do, and some people are intimidated by me.. however I am a pretty laid back guy and chill person, and I really enjoy working hard, as well as playing hard and relaxing when given the chance.
What I’m doing with my life
I have high ambitions in life. Having fun, enjoying life, building a career. Looking for that special lady to spend time with and enjoy the wonderful things in life.
I’m really good at
Looking and dressing sharp and clean is also something I try to abide by constantly, it feels great and who doesn't like looking nice. But hey everyone needs a day off here or there too, so its not a huge deal breaker. I am looking for class and elegance!

I love basketball and running (I play basketball 3 to 5 times a week) and recently dropped around 30 pounds, down to 180 from 210 of pretty hard muscle. I set my mind to it, knew I could do it, and took that leverage and made it happen. Where there is a will, there is a way.

I enjoy running a lot, though I do not get to do it as often as I would like to. Running is pretty awesome though. I get quite a bit in when playing basketball with my friends throughout the week. I am big into sports, but it is not life dominating, and I enjoy catching games when I have the chance. I also enjoy golf, hanging out with friends, and I absolutely love dancing!
The first things people usually notice about me
is that I am a very confident and caring.

I enjoy talking, debating, and philosophizing, and sharing ideas as well as having fun and joking also. Sharing knowledge, talking, and learning about people is interesting to me. As such, I really enjoy teaching and sharing with others and volunteer the small amount of time I do have to helping tutor and give back to my community. I will often mentor kids in basketball.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Michael Jordan is one of my role models.. and his quote of success really inspires me...

I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed. - Michael Jordan

Hmmm.. my favorite color is blue (cliche I know, but it must be because my eyes are blue.. hey at least I have a good reason! :P)

One of my favorite quotes is,
"Any road followed precisely to its end leads precisely nowhere.
Climb the mountain just a little bit to test that it's a mountain.
From the top of the mountain, you cannot see the mountain."

I will leave that up to you to decipher, if you so choose!

I am extremely easy to get along with, so if you are looking to be friends or want to chat shoot me a message and I will do my best to get back to you... Sometimes there may be a delay in my response, but I will do my best. Send me a message

Thanks for reading :) I hope you enjoyed learning a little about me..
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How awesome everything is, as well as where I am going with my life.. I was put here to help out people and do something amazing that will help people. I just need to find out what that is, and then I will do it!
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing basketball, out with friends, watching tv, reading, possibly working, out and about, adventuring like a Goonie, or doing one of a hundred other random things, maybe I will be out with you ;)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a cool bird that can talk (african grey), and I like chocolate chip muffins (one of which I am eating right now, and boy is it scrumptious!).
You should message me if
no ifs, just do it!
The two of us
