I am an independent person who has paved my own way in life. I have had my own business here and abroad since 1985. Originally from New York but moved to California on my own at age of sixteen. I have made my career in the culinary arts with much success. I am a musician. I enjoy playing and recording rock and roll and the blues. I am looking for a woman that is grounded, sincere, artistic, creative, beautiful from within who enjoys a one on one relationship. I am a one woman guy. I don't like to play games with people. I don't like to waste time. I don't cheat. If you want to build a relationship with a foundation of trust, honesty, friendship and love, I could be the man that you waited for all your life. I love animals, dogs, cats, birds and treat them like family. I like to travel and live abroad. I am a leader and not a follower. I am bilingual I speak English and Spanish. I am a liberal thinker and opinionated on all subjects. I don't require that you think like me and respect contrary opinions.
