Besides my height (I’m 6’3”), the first thing people notice about me is that I’m a mellow and laid back person. I try to always keep things in perspective and look for the bright side in most situations. In general, I’m a pretty happy guy. I like trying new things whether it’s a new recipe (I’d love to go to culinary school someday) or checking out a new band.
I’m a big planner and take a lot of time to put together great vacations. I’ve organized an African safari in Tanzania, as well as trips to Ireland, Italy, Panama, Belize, and Thailand. I prefer warm beach spots and just had a great time with my family in New Zealand. My next trip will be to The Galapagos Islands in January. I am adventurous on my trips and would love to go cage diving with great white sharks or take a polar bear expedition one day.
I try to live a healthy lifestyle and began running regularly last year. I’ve completed a few half marathons as well as The Calistoga to Santa Cruz Relay. During the week, I sometimes squeeze in basketball at lunch and an occasional round of golf on the weekend. I have a great hiking partner, Duke, my extremely energetic 7-year-old yellow lab.
I think I make a good partner because I’m always very conscious of how the other person is feeling. I strive to be sure that she feels secure and happy. I notice the little things and know that they count. I am a patient and loyal person and am hoping to find someone with similar traits. When it comes down to it, I'm looking for someone to share my life with—a best friend. I am attracted to confident, positive women who are open to new experiences.
