I've done a lot in my life already and I'm always looking forward to trying something new. I think I'm someone who shines in person but I'll do my best do describe myself briefly. I am a very laid back and easy going guy, however I would say I'm anything but boring and some times can be a smartass. Family is very important to me and I usually look for someone who also also has strong family values. I pride myself as being extremely loyal to the people who are important to me. I'd say I'm pretty active; I love to play softball in the summer and hockey in the winter. I have a sister who lives in Colorado and I try to make it there for snowboarding at least once a year. I'm confortable in almost any setting - I like living close to the city with access to so many great bars and restaurants, but I'm just as happy at home spending time with my dog or enjoying a camp fire outside with good friends. I'm optimistic about Match because I have friends who've had a lot of luck here, and I'm ready to find someone who's both a partner and a best friend to start a family with.
