I really enjoy sports, both participating, and watching. I am a former musician, so I enjoy listening to various genres of music. Again, I love to travel. Experiencing the regional differences within our own culture, as well as the experiences and lifestyles of other cultures is fun and exciting. I love to cook, and have had experience cooking in a four star restaurant. When traveling, eating regional foods is the most authentic way to connect with another culture. I have a passion for the culinary arts, and enjoy making people happy through my cooking! I believe family and friends are essential to maintaining a balanced and healthy lifestyle. So, I enjoy spending quality time with both. I have two wonderful children, a boy and a girl. They are what drive me every day, and their well being and future are top priority when making decisions about my life. I have had a wide range of experiences in my life, and I am looking for someone to share those experiences with, as well as create new ones. Although I like to be on the move, I also enjoy sitting at home and relaxing. Especially on those cold snowy days, when school is called off and I don't have to teach! Health and wellness are also important to me. I love to run, and have recently competed in several 5k events. Basketball is my favorite sport to play. Football is the sport I enjoy watching. I don't think of myself as a sports fanatic, however, I am deeply involved, coaching football, basketball, and track. Most enjoyable to me is playing a round of golf with close friends or family. If you enjoy golfing, then that is an added bonus, but not a must! So, if you are a person with strong familial ties, and would enjoy experiencing the world through travel, athletics, and food, then I am the man you are looking for!
