I came to Florida having grown up in New England to pursue a job in the fishing gear manufacturing industry. The job has grown into the career of my dreams, combining my engineering skills with my passion for fishing and the outdoors. I am very proud of my hard work that allowed me to get to this point in my life, and forever grateful for the opportunity to excel in a field that I am truly passionate about.
I enjoy being outdoors as much as possible, both on the water and in the woods, but also appreciate a nice night out on the town. I also really love to cook and experiment with new foods and cooking styles. I spent a semester of my undergrad in Budapest Hungary and have loved traveling ever since, and I do as much as possible both through work and in my personal time. In the last year alone I've been to Costa Rica, Fiji, Brazil, Hawaii, Abu Dhabi, and all over the lower 48 (even Oklahoma!!!, TWICE).
I'm not really into the "club" scene, and am way more at home at a laid back dive bar/tiki bar. I'd way rather chat with friends, watch a game, and maybe enjoy some live tunes. I love to cook as well, especially a nice piece of fish. I just bought a new smoker, which is an interesting and challeging new toy, and I enjoy experimenting with it. One of my favorite memories was hosting a pig roast my seinor year of college, where I cooked a 185lb pig. It was intense!
I am looking for a partner who expects a lot from themselves and their partner. Who is motivated and driven, yet compassionate and caring and who always can keep their "stick on the ice". Self-confidence in extremely attractive, but a certain amount of humility is equally important. I feel as though a relationship is all about complementing one another and bringing out the best in each other. I love to learn from and be inspired by my partner. Someone who can have fun in a power-outage, enjoys watching people have meltdowns at the public boat ramp, and hates the self-checkout line at the grocery store is ideal.
