Looking to meet new people and find the right friends for life's travels. The non-negotiable qualities for me are honesty and loyalty with strong preferences for compassion, ability to have tough conversations, drive, intelligence and humor. Sexy doesn't hurt either...
As for me, I'm a driven career guy who has found success, challenge and rewards in my work. I've been able to take my academic background in public relations and business management and build a career in a field I love - public education.
As passionate as I am for my work I recognize and embrace the need to balance with happy hours, weekend trips, Sunday brunches, catching a game and making sure I have time to spend with those who are important to me. I am a family focused guy as well and am close with my parents and sister.
Date nights can be elaborate romantic outings, a drink at happy hour, or a comfortable night at home with just the two of us.
What else... Amateur photographer and love to set time aside on my trips to snap a few shots (or a few hundred then at least I get one good one). Can be a little reserved at first but generally warm up quickly to be a bit of a smart ass when I'm really comfortable.
