Those close to me describe me as being caring, loyal, dependable, and always fun to be around. I've always been the type of person that puts the needs of those around me before my own. I'm relaxed, easy going, and very easy to get along with. A bit of a joker at times, but I know when I need to be serious. When I feel overwhelmed or stressed, I like to hit the trails for long hikes or go fishing to help me clear my mind and put me at ease and ready to take on the world once again. I'm divorced (but surely not bitter), and a father of one amazing little boy who I like to call my "mini-me." He truly is my driving force, and the one who helps to keep me together. The one person I've been greatly influenced by, practically my entire life, is my Grandfather. Respect for my elders and those in my community, and the meaning of a hard days honest work were just some of the values I've learned from this man. That, and style. I may not be the foremost knowledgeable person on urban fashion, but I can sure rock a suit and tie like no other all thanks to him. It's kind of hard to pinpoint exactly what it is that I'm passionate about, only because I've done so much and yet there are still so many things that I have yet to experience. My social life, in recent years has of course had to take a back seat due to work, parenthood, and the ever occasional military deployment. Now, it's time to get back out there and meet new people outside of my professional circle. Come on ladies, show a guy that there are still some honest, decent, and loving women left in this world.
