ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

Hello, I'm currently in Serbia where I spend 3 months a year lecturing and conducting training sessions for university students. While I would really like to meet you, I probably can't meet you for coffee until the end of April.

"Troy is your Aidan" said affectionately, by an ex girlfriend's mom. We were still dating at the time. My superhero name for her thereafter was "The Foreshadow".

We all have trends and patterns in our relationships. I have an uncanny trend. Women I have relationships with marry the next guy that they date. It happens more often than not. Happily, I'll report the husbands that they get out of the deal seem to be really nice guys. Everyone wins I guess.

I would love to have an amazing woman break this trend with me.

I'm single. Your worst case scenario is that you get an Aidan.

Everybody wins.

Message me.

Travel has always been a passion for me, I was fortunate to grow up in Kenya, Uganda, and Zambia. My parents were missionaries for about 30 years.

I called Las Vegas home for 15 years. In 2010 I started going to the island of Martha's Vineyard for the summer season.

On Martha's Vineyard, I start every summer season with a team of 60 individuals from 14 different countries. The team is split pretty evenly between Americans and college kids from Europe on the Work and Travel (J-1) Visa. We sweat, laugh, cry, work long hours, make money, get sun burns, shake lots of sand out of our shoes and some fall in love. We do this day in and day out until, we are a family that has branches in 14 different countries. It's life changing for all of us. It's magical.

I have been able to create tremendous teams in my professional life but, I haven't had that in too long in my personal life. On Match I'm looking for a long term relationship at the least. Hopefully, I will find a partner for the rest of my life.

The rest of the year I work on different projects and travel. I try to do my part to create peace and prosperity in the world. One way I do that is through the J-1 Visa program.

For the last four years I have spent 3 months of the year in Serbia. While there, I give several hours of intensely entertaining lectures about the hospitality industry in the U.S. to university students in Belgrade and Novi Sad. I also teach some classes in Nis, which I discovered, is the hometown of Constantine The Great. will also be interviewing and hiring several students for summer work on Martha's Vineyard and elsewhere. Every year, I am amazed at the vitality that the J-1 Visa students bring to anything they are involved in. They are the leaders of Europe tomorrow.


You won't hear me saying bad things about the women I have dated. They were mostly pretty amazing. I just wasn't ready to settle down. Now, I am. Timing is everything, right?


I will be in Lincoln visiting family until mid January. I'm not on Match for a hook up. Let's meet for a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, have a few laughs and get to know each other.
