I work hard (M-F 8-4) and love to play hard (when not at work). I love the outdoors, fishing, Catalina, cooking, traveling, dancing, making love, and being surrounded by good friends and family. I am a simple happy man who enjoys putting the top down on the M Roadster and hittin' the road. Workin' on my classic 1990 Eddie Bauer full size Bronco has become my new distraction. It is fishing and camping ready! I am the proud product of a teacher (mom) and an engineer (dad) and a L.A. native (Pasadena). For me, life is simple. If I wake up every morning healthy, then I can't be unhappy. I am a serious morning person! Starbucks 5.00a.m. for coffee and the paper (LA Times). Recently finished my MBA (Got MBA?). One of the best decisions I ever made. I make my own choices and deal w/ the consequences as well as the benefits. This is my mantra. I enjoy independent, smart, sexy and beautiful women w/ similar interests. I like a woman who can take care of herself and likes time to herself, yet knows how to let a man make her feel like a woman. I grew up with very strong female role models, which was mostly a benefit. I like a good emotional balance in the women I date. I am not looking for woman who is looking for material possessions from me because the things she needs, she can get for herself. She will he happy w/ who she is, and that is very important and isn't constantly looking to change herself or the man she is with. I do not do well with women with low self esteem and who need constant attention. I am also looking for a women who acts like an adult, not like a child in an adults body. Maturity in a woman is a great characteristic but is hard to find these days. I don't use Facebook or Tweet but I actually do enjoy intellectual live conversation. So, if you understand these concepts, maybe we can have a cocktail and talk about life and the world?
