What to say about myself...
I'm an engineer by education and trade and working on a career change to become a helicopter pilot. My childhood passion has always been flying so I'm working on becoming a kid again. ;-) Making such a change is a big step but my view is that life is meant to be lived and pursued, not wished for. I'm also a very active guy. I've always really enjoyed learning new skills and trying out new things. I play brazilian percussion in a local band. When the weather permits I'm like to inline skate and take in the sun and the outdoors. I really enjoy playing pool, poker, soccer, and basketball and going out with my close friends. I also like to keep myself fit so you'll see me in the gym on a regular basis and always try to keep my sweet tooth in check.
I was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil but have been in the US since college. I'm also a dual citizen of Brazil and the US. I've experienced a very international life growing up and that's really given me a different perspective in life.
Some words that I've heard people describe me more than once: dedicated, smart, sweet, charismatic, easy-going, patient, likeable, attentive, unthreatening, diplomatic, genuine, funny, a great guy. I value my close friends and my family. I'll go above and beyond for those I care about and find no problem putting myself second for them. I'm also very affectionate and respectful. But don't get me wrong, I'm always up for some good sarcastic banter too.
I'm also very aware and keen on what I'm looking for in a woman and a partner so if I've reached out to you it's because I've actually read your profile and you've caught my interest. I won't bore you with a cookie cutter list and would just rather get to know you.
There's also plenty more to me (as there usually is for everyone) so I'll leave the rest for you to find out.
