I am a firefighter/Hazardous materials Specialist and special operations firefighter in the south bay and live in a beautiful setting in the Santa Cruz area. I have also been a volunteer diver for the Monterrey bay aquarium, something I want to take up again soon. I bought my house about 5 years ago and the scenic pics are taken from the deck. I am in good shape and take care of myself. I had to take the pics of me myself as you can see lol. It's the best I could do at the time and I will be updating them but I don't think you would be disappointed by my physical appearance. I love to laugh, have a great sense of humor and a very positive outlook on life. I am a very ambitious person by nature and have accomplished much to date. however, accomplishments are not the same without someone to share them with.:o) I am a computer graphics artist on my days off and love to work out. I enjoy movies and trips to the beach. These days I spend a lot of time with my lab, Kobe, he thinks the pool is his. The lady holding him as a baby is my mother, who I can't thank enough for a great upbringing and the values I have today: One of my favorite places to go theses days is Cozumel to scuba dive. I have made a lot of friends down there and it is a great place to relax. I have never been to Europe but want to go and meet my family who live there in Slovenia. I hope to do that soon and know one I do I will have to go back on a continuing basis since there is so much to see in Europe. I am affectionate, very positive, considerate generous, spontaneous and adventurous. I am looking for a partner in crime who has some of those qualities and loves to travel. I have a boat that I love to take on trips to the lake during summer. I love doing anything that involves getting outside, as well as dining out, the theater, concerts, hiking you name it. I enjoy snow skiing and love to cook. My idea of a great evening would be to cook a nice dinner for or with someone special and relax with a good bottle of wine in front of a good movie or some good conversation. PLEASE NOTE-- My profile says that I am not sure about having kids. This does not mean I am not into dating someone with them. I love kids and wanted them very much when I was younger. I am open to adopting and might even still want one with the right person, I am just as open however to living my life and enjoying what I have and move on from that possibility since I am a bit older now. The most important thing is to meet a goot person no matter what the circumstances. There is so much more to me than this profile so drop me a line if you are interested and want to know more.sincere, easy going personality, cute, affectionate passionate. loves to try new things and travel. You want to be swept off your feet and don't mind someone stopping by with flowers or bringing lunch to your work. Most of all you follow your heart and are not afraid of commitment. The rest we can figure out together.
