The people who know me best would describe me as an old soul, one who recognizes the truly important things in life: family, friends, good health, and an open mind. However, I would also like to be considered as a modern man - one who is well-informed on what is happening locally and globally, gives back to his community, and realizes the importance of constant communication in his relationships. Living life in such a balance while maintaining a focus on my career is a challenge that I wholeheartedly embrace.
It is my great goal in life to bring a positive influence in any interaction, be it in the office, at home, or out and about. After 30 years of learning by doing, I think I've figured out a strategy to achieving this: my personality begins and ends with my sense of humor (I love to laugh and make others laugh), but I can be serious when the occasion calls for it. I have the utmost respect for other people's time and consideration, and understand when to talk and when to listen. I also know that my ideal match also has these qualities, and that all else is negotiable.
I love learning more than anything. Fortunately, there is no shortage of opportunities to learn in this world, and I feel that some of the greatest learning takes place between two people who, although each may have different interests and points of view, are committed to understanding the other. How would you like to build that bridge with me?
