I would say that I am friendly, kind, determined, confident, understated, independent, constantly busy, considerate, a person with a personality of depth and multi-layered, which takes time to understand, adventurous, possessing a dry wit and a bit of a rebel. More simply, I am considered a very loyal friend and make my friends a HUGE priority. I am overly educated and have visited enough of the world's museums to say I am cultured, but I really prefer being outside. I visit the gym regularly and when the weather allows I am active outside with tennis, swimming, rollerblading,and a bit of golf. My current passion is beach volleyball,which I play every weekend! Not long ago I tried hiking, with my first hike being to the top of Mt. Whitney in one day. ;No point taking 3 days when 1 will suffice!! :) In addition, I thrive on travel, trying to make a couple of trips per year. In the past few years, I have been blessed to spend time in Turkey, Honduras, Guatemala, Cuba - and have lived in Europe. Over the years - I was stopped by bandits in Peru, stranded in the Amazon Jungle (Venezuela) by Hurricane Ivan, and in Thailand the day after the Tsunami, volunteering. I guess I am just a normal guy who has been fortunate enough to have had some good times and looking for a partner to join in the adventure!I would like to meet a woman who is generally positive, fun and upbeat, active, fit, intellectually aware of the world, independent, adventurous, possessing passions for something in her life and shares my Christian faith.
