Well here it goes....I am a sucessful entrepreneur who very much enjoys his work. People have described me using words like confident, loyal, intelligent, humorous, over-achiever, and a good conversationalist. I'm athletic (member of #1 nationally ranked college football team many years ago) love physical activity and competition. I enjoy the finer things in life like a good bottle of wine, sunsets, theatre, travel, entertaining friends, quite time alone, and massages. While I have experienced many successes and failures, I truly believe the biggest RISK in life is not taking one. I don't like following a crowd, long lines, LA traffic, big hair, or loud, smothering, doting people. Here are some miscellaneous tid-bits about me. I have always felt in a previous life I lived as a pirate. If I could start my life all over, I secretly want to come back as Dirk Pitt (for those Clive Clussler fans out there). Famous people I admire (all for different reasons) are: Steve Jobs, Condoleezza Rice, Madeline Albright, Steve Fossett, and Henry Kissinger amoung others. I'm at a point in my life where I have achieved financial independance and looking to enjoy more time traveling the world with the love of my life. I consider Naples Florida my home but have grown tired of the long summer months so I'm in the process of looking for a second home near the ocean in Maine as my getaway spot and travel back and forth frequently. My personal background is that I am one a litter of six children and grew up in Pennsylvania. My parents are still married and I very much enjoy visiting with my siblings during special events and holidays. My partner would be independent, own sense of style, feminine, smart, strong willed, able to feel comfortable in sweat shirt and jeans, as well as, be entertaining in formal social functions. I'm not perfect, so I wouldn't expect my mate to be.
