After twenty years in the same career, I still love every day on the job and feel fortunate to be one of the lucky people who can say that. I've always gotten a sense of joy out of helping people and felt you've got to give it away in order to keep it. My family and friends are a huge part of my life. I still have most of the same friends I had as a kid, we even travel together. My sister and brother-in-law are great and have given me the opportunity to be the best uncle in the world. My Italian heritage is extremely important to me and helps me stay close to my family. Our family even makes homemade sauce and we can are own tomatoes and peppers. Not surprisingly, most of my travel to Europe has been to Italy, where I maintain dual citizenship. In my free time I stay active. I play men's softball, golf and enjoy a variety of outdoor activities. I also enjoy the wealth of artistic and cultural events that Cleveland has to offer.
I'm excited about meeting a woman who maintains a close relationship with her family, similar to my own. She should share my love of travel, have a great sense of humor, and ideally enjoy sports - but at least be open to attending a game or two with me. She understands that it's the little things in life that helps drive the passion in a relationship and appreciates the effort and intentions behind them. I believe a healthy relationship is built upon honesty, openness and compromise. To me, communication is everything.
