How do I begin? My name is Mike and I am a 29 year old chef at a five-star restaurant. I am working my way up the culinary ladder and the club I work at is the first step. I love cooking and I love where I work and what I do. During my off days, I usually get house chores done, but when the boring stuff is over, I enjoy a nice hike, fishing, sports (Redskins football and Orioles baseball), movies, food, good wines and beers, and all around enjoying my time off of work. I am close with my family and that is very important to me. I am always looking for "the one" and I know I will find her, just gotta keep digging. I'd like to have someone who likes to have a good time sitting at home, cooking a nice meal together, enjoying a nice bottle of wine and a movie, and I'd also like to go out every now and then, hang with friends or get a beer at a local watering hole. I love music, from classical to hard rock, heavy metal, hip hop, jazz, blues, classic rock, folk (no country!), and everything in between. I try to stay as up to date on politics as I can but it is hard when I don't really care that much. I am an avid fantasy football player and that is the only time I gamble during the year. Not big on casino's but will par take every once in a while. Anything you want to know, ask. My life is an open book.
