I have zero experience with online dating but was told by some friends that this is the new reality, so here goes... I am an extroverted, warm-hearted, grounded guy who loves meeting new people, seeing new places, trying new things. I relocated to So Cal about 5 years ago from Phoenix, AZ for work and spend my days as a medical device/surgical equipment sales rep for a great company that I feel very lucky to be a part of. Outside of work I am very passionate about food, cooking, and wine. I spend at least 5-6 nights per week in the kitchen and am actually thrilled to take a daily trip to the market after a busy day. I typically am very modest, but not with regard to my skills in the kitchen... THIS KID CAN COOK!! I aspire to someday be a restaurateur in some capacity, using my entrepreneurial drive to turn my love into a business for myself. I believe that passionately preparing and sharing a fantastic meal with those you care about (and even perfect strangers) is the best way to show love... Well, there are obviously other/better ways to show affection for that special someone but not with those perfect strangers, of course! ;)
I am also very passionate about music, concerts, travel and am always looking to share a great belly laugh- especially with people who have an appreciation for sarcastic, dry wit, general silliness and/or shenanigans. Laughter is the best medicine, after all. Spending time with friends and family also makes me happy, especially with my brother and cousin since we're always having the best time together.
I was born with a suitcase in my hand and have had the privilege of some great travel in my day with multiple trips to Europe (France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Luxembourg, England, Italy), several islands in the Caribbean, Canada, Mexico, all over the US, and took my first trip to China earlier this year. I still have a lot of ground to cover, however. Next on my list is Southeast Asia (Thailand is number 1), followed by Spain, Greece, Turkey, all over South America, and Australia. I believe a well-rounded life is cultivated by experiencing as many people, places, cultures, foods, adventures and emotions as possible. Travel will always bring me joy as a result.
Ultimately, I'm interested in meeting someone fun and genuine who is looking to have a great time and share some laughs together. I'm attracted to a beautiful, confident, well-rounded, educated, passionate lady who is very secure in her own skin, loves sharing new experiences, trying new food, has a great sense of humor, rocks a pair of high heels but is also comfortable throwing on a ball cap and going to a football game or dive bar... I love a woman who likes to have cocktails and share wine together over a great meal, conversation or even if we're just being goofballs together. I love a woman who can make me laugh, can teach me new things, and is in touch with what is going on in this crazy world. I'm always attracted to women who are active, value physical fitness, overall health and take care of their body. Ultimately though, I'm interested in a woman who strives to bring the best out of her man; her man who always wants to do the same for her. So if this sounds like you, feel free to drop me a line and we can chat. No offense, but picky eaters, vegans and or vegetarians need not apply... Thanks for taking a peek!
