I have been fortunate enough to have had some great role models in my life who inspire me everyday. I work hard and have a multitude of hobbies that always keep things interesting. I love to get up early and seize the day, as living an active and healthy lifestyle is important to me. I'm always looking to try new things, it bothers me when there's something I know little or nothing about. I've been to some amazing places, but there are so many places I want to visit! I'm semi-new to southern Cal, but since being down here I've fallen in love with the desert areas. Palm springs, Sedona, southern Utah, I'm always in the mood to escape out there.
I have an amazing family with 2 brothers. My parents definitely raised us as old-fashioned American gentlemen. We're all scattered over the west coast now, and I try to see them as often as I can. Im lucky enough to say that I have a career that matches my major in college (finance), and that I recently became a homeowner in orange county. I take both of those very seriously, as they are big commitments. I went to the University of Oregon, and I'm obsessed with the Ducks, and all things Oregon. I recently became director of the OC Alumni chapter.
My friends would probably tell you that I make them laugh, that I'm a preppy, and a bit of a nerd. I won't disagree with either of those. I absolutely love playing golf, I've been playing for a long as I can remember. I'm really in to outdoor recreation, backpacking, day-hiking, camping, and kayaking. Being a guy who wears a suit everyday, I often need to get 'off the grid' and be out in nature. I put a ton of money and time into renovating my place, but especially my kitchen. I really enjoy cooking, and being able to prepare high-quality, fresh food on my own. Conversely, there are many great spots in Orange County, and it seems like there's always a new place to check out.
I'm a hard working guy, very driven, direct, and confident. I took work and saving money really seriously after school, which has paid off, but I'm always trying to strike a fair balance between work and social life, not always successfully. I guess that's my way of saying I need to get out more.
I like nice girls, girls that smile a lot, are confident with who they are, have a good common sensibility, and are passionate about something.
I love good conversation and debate, but I'm very sarcastic and I love to laugh, tell off-color jokes and be a goofball.
