I love the outdoors and spend as much time there as possible. I enjoy jogging, hiking, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, biking, playing sports or taking photographs. I'm big on picnics and BBQs. I am very active and I love to travel or experience new things. I have traveled several times to Europe and I speak fluent French. I love day trips, concerts, museums, festivals, theme parks, or finding new restaurants and bars to frequent. I can dress it up to go out for a nice dinner, drinks and some dancing or throw on some old jeans and a tshirt and split a pitcher of beer while we shoot pool at a sports bar.
I earned a B.A and M.Ed from the University of Florida and I read a lot; mostly online news, historical/political books, historical fiction and some graphic novels. I don't watch a lot of TV but I love the Simpsons, Futurama, South Park, Ugly Americans, The Boondocks as well as most anything in the History or Discovery channels. I also like to watch documentaries about the environment, food, politics and war. I want to get more into photography and I'd like to start writing a book. I practice the art of conversation, and my years of teaching and coaching have made me a good listener. I'm also big on music and I often play some when I'm home, especially from my growing record collection.
I am the father of a beautiful 2 year old daughter who lives with her mother in Orlando. I'm not looking for a mother figure for my daughter, but please understand being a father has changed the way I think. I am looking for an active, intelligent woman with a sense of humor as big as her sense of adventure. I beleive that the person I'm with is more important than the activity we're doing. Age, race, religion, occupation, income, and previous relationships aren't as important as your personality.
Life is an adventure, take a chance and try something new.
