In 2009 I was in a horrendous auto accident and broke my back. I gained over 60 lbs and was loosing my life. Exercise wasn't an option and meds kept me heavy. Life has changed now. I have lost 40 lbs to date and gained back my muscle definition. I say this because a few years ago I thought I could start anew but the accident happened, so now I'm ready and I want a companion who believes in her future. I think that with my weight gain I have become sensitive to issues that develop that are out of our control. I just want to share my good times with someone special who's not afraid of adventure.
I am a single parent and I have three children ages 11,13 (son and daughter) and 15 (daughter). The two youngest live with their mom in Petaluma. My eldest daughter and I are in Santa Cruz.
I am honest, respectful, and ambitious. Passionate about life. I am career driven, but know how to balance life between work and play. I can enjoy a night out as well as a leisure night at home. I am active, family oriented and have strong values.
I travel to and from Hawaii for business and I am a Santa Cruz native. I lived in LA for many years and I frequent S CA at times to work on productions. I am a Graduate from UC Santa Cruz.
I enjoy filmmaking, digital media, photography, writing, art, theater, and traveling. I also enjoy the ocean, riding bikes, professional sports (49er season ticket holder), adult league sports, and cooking. I enjoy dancing, music events, and quiet evenings indoors watching classic films.

I just want a friend who can be themselves with me, someone who can allow herself to be that one person that is true to herself. I believe the best way to approach online dating sites is to realize we have our own story to offer; one that now seeks a new companion, friend, a new beginning -
A date can be just a date, or, it can be a new beginning. I am open, I enjoy the company of a woman who is confident and has a positive outlook on life. Someone who values their spiritual walk and stands firm when it comes to their values and morals.
I am confident and I am also humble, so if you want an educated warm sensitive man, who can make you laugh, I think that would be me. I also understand we are human and can have our set backs, I am not to judge you - and I won't...but, rather I will be kind, and patient.
I love traveling and learning about different cultures, having good food and great conversations, and I would like to meet someone who has a similar mindset and some common interests we could enjoy together.
