The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.” ~W.A. Ward

In his own words

Update 2014 Currently in New Orleans, but moving to Los Angeles in the early summer... ------------------------------------------- Update Mid-June 2013: I have to be honest... I'm pretty disenchanted with the dating scene in this city, at present. For the time being, I'll leave it up to you ladies to reach out first. If I'm interested, I'll reach back... You have my word ;-) Be Well -------------------------------------------- Let's try this again ;-) Although I was born in NOLA, as were the majority of my family members, I was raised in SOCAL. . . Acronyms, right? ;-) At any rate, I've been back in New Orleans for roughly three and a half years. It has been a real journey becoming reacquainted with my roots and establishing a professional base. . . Now, on to real business: I'm the absolute best at being me . . . for better or for worse ;-) That being said, I can only imagine my life being enhanced by meeting a lady who has come to know, love and respect herself. Being a good kisser wouldn't hurt either! I won't get into monotonous details about what it is that I'm looking for. I am certain that she and I will both know once we become acquainted with one another. Women, who exhibit a nice balance of self-confidence and selflessness, are very attractive to me. On the other hand, a little spontaneity is cool when it comes to having a good time. After experiencing some communication "hiccups," here are a few sidebars I feel the need to express: After allowing myself to slip, I've spent the better part of last year getting my tail back into reasonably good physical condition. My match doesn't have to be a figure competitor, by any means (I'm certainly not ;-), but a reasonably healthy and fit lifestyle is preferable. Please take this note to heart... Although 'winks' ...and "Hi," ...and "Wassup?" are extremely flattering, I'm not likely to respond to them. Part of my criteria for a match is someone who is fearless in matters of communication. If you're interested, just go ahead and leave a message. I'll do the same!
