ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

Buckle up, here we go... first and foremost, I'm all about honesty, full disclosure... being happy with what you've got, always striving for betterment, regardless of what curveballs life throws your way, so, here goes... I've been a single father with full custody over four years now, and have embraced the dating scene with no expectations, looking forward to making new friends and connections and taking things from there. Went to firefighter's academy when I returned to Philly and started volunteering in my hometown, which I left when I was 17 to study ethnobotany at the University of the Virgin Islands on St. Thomas. Started a thriving trail guide business on St. John in 1999 and was the first ever commercial vendor granted permission and a license to do business on National Park Service property. Deciding that at the time it was not a healthy environment to raise children, moved back up to the states and began my life as a general contractor. Travelled and lived in several different midwestern states, working on large commercial projects, always saved and finally landed in Portland, OR in 2004. Four kids and an obvious divorce later, my children and I returned to Philly in January of 2010. I am very passionate about the wilderness, mountains, lakes, rivers, and oceans, which is why I love the Northwest. If not for the overwhelming needs of my children, we would have probably stayed out there. Some things you cannot do without the help and support of family, and PA is a beautiful state. I love music and like at least one thing from every genre, but my Philly roots always make my knees weak for a good beat. I'm a carpenter/contractor/firefighter/superdad/... apparently, it can get a little hectic trying to meet the needs of my children and dealing with the overhead of life at the same time... lol. I love what I do for a living. I take pride in, and am passionate about everything that I commit myself to. I always try to make sure that my glass is half full and not half empty. My children have made me the man that I am proud to be. I am looking for someone who is flexible, down to earth, reliable, good-spirited and lots of fun! You can't put a price on a good smile. Must do well with children, duh. I want a woman to come to know and love me for who I am and not what they want me to be, and vice versa, through that, I feel they will come to know and love my children aswell... one thing and one day at a time. I believe that life is about following your heart, which takes courage because it's bound to get broken on occasion, and when it doesn't is when the magic happens. If no-one followed their hearts, there would be no stories to tell, no love, no adventures, no revolutions, no discovery. I choose to follow my heart in life and am prepared and willing to accept loss and defeat, but you can't be victorious if you don't give it your all and find out. So why not do this online dating thing, worst case scenario for us all, we find some creepo who wants to stalk us and force their love on us, best case, we find someone we genuinely fall in love with and wake up next to everyday until we croak, romantic, I know. But really, I am a hopeless romantic looking for a woman that loves, respects, and supports me just as I would them. Enough about me, if you're still interested and made it this far, then give me a shout and let me know a little about yourself. Aloha!

Doing stuff with the kids is always a fun work out. I love to sneak in a movie whenever I can. A nice dinner and a couple drinks is always a fun treat. I've always had a passion for the outdoors. Canoeing, fishing, and hiking are probably my favs.
