I'm looking for someone with her own life, career, and drive that is also nearing the point where everything is in place, wants to give up the long hours and slow down. I would love to find someone who enjoys going to Houston Texans games as much as I do or would love to have dinner and a movie on Friday nights after a long week of work. Honestly, it would be nice to find someone with a carefree nature to spend time with during the week and balance out my need for productivity.
I graduated in May 2006 with an electrical engineering degree and I've been working my tail off ever since. I design electrical substations. I spent my first five years after college working for an established industry leader, and in the last year moved to a smaller company in an attempt to establish myself and build something great. I sometimes find myself working 60 hours a week for months at a time because I feel that sacrifices have to be made when building something for the future. I would not describe myself as short sighted. However, I'm hoping to finally get established and put those long hours behind me.
I used to work out a lot, but I've learned that as I've gotten older, my job, Christian faith, and just life in general have required more of my time. I still get to the gym 5 times a week, but the two-a-days have become far too difficult. I absolutely love basketball and will play it as long as my body and the Lord allow me to. I also play ultimate frisbee when my ankles are willing and I don't have to be in the office.
I love church and young kids. I spent four years coaching Upward basketball down in Texas City and absolutely loved it. However, work made it difficult to drive from Clear Lake for practices and games so I stepped away. Two years ago, I was asked to teach Sunday School for seventh and eighth grade boys, and I love them to death. Sometimes I feel that the kids forget I'm 29 with a professional career since I don't wear slacks with a nice shirt and dress the part, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
