'm a traditional family man that loves to have fun. I love my family and they love me. I can't think of too many times when someone saw us together that they didn't think I or we were silly or just nuts (in a good way).
When I do have my children on the weekends, my attention is all theirs. I have spent many years where my work life made my family life suffer. Now I give them all I can as often as I can. If we were to find ourselves friends or more, you would get that kind of attention as I've learned that there is nothing more important that strong relationships.
I've been a percussionist since I was 4 years old. I even have pictures (somewhere!) of myself playing on my Dennis the Menace drum kit at 4. I was told recently by one of my friends that I'm the only person he has ever seen that can get so lost in God's presence while playing music and not miss a single beat or nuance. I toured Europe with Far Beyond Silence for 6 years before moving back home to the US.
Hiking, fishing, and watching movies are my favorite things to do. If I can't go on a hike... a nice walk will do. Eventually I’d like to get back on a bicycle too!
There was a time where I was very athletic. I’ve crossed the country three times on a bicycle; twice from LA to Boston and Once from NY to FL. I didn’t even drive a car until I was 30. I was also ranked 4th in the country in mixed martial arts before the sport ever became popular or even had a name like the UFC does now. I was an aerobics instructor at one point, certified by ACE and Reebok. So I know what it’s like to be healthy and I have some goals in mind for myself.
Unfortunately due to a car accident, I’ve been sidelined for a few years and put on some pounds (breaking your ribs in 26 places and collapsing both of your lung and a pulmonary embolism will do that to a person). I am currently healthy enough to get back in the gym and that’s where I am go much of the time. I am tenacious about it as I’ve lost 150lbs the past year by dieting alone, now the real work begins. I would love to share some of that no pain no gain time with! someone!
With that said, I am serious about my relationships. I don't play games or try to mislead people. If things aren't right, we can still be friends. Honesty with each other, even if it hurts is better than pretending and hurting each others feelings. I long for that person who understands what I'm saying.
So what exactly am I looking for? A Proverbs 31 woman that fits my life and who I am and what G-d wants me to be. There is no other way we could complement each other better as I want to give my all (after G-d of course) to you.
I do have a serious side though, especially when it comes to my work ethic. I'm a Veteran of the US Army and tend to be tenacious until whatever I'm working on is complete. I guess that’s why I’m still a student, continuing my education to further my career along in order to support those I love.
So don't be shy! Feel free to write and ask as many questions as you want. I'm an open book.
