The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about a lot of things including my friends, my career and various hobbies like hiking and traveling. I enjoy helping people and developing strong relationships. I am very passionate about learning and understanding things. On some level, I don't think you can really enjoy or appreciate life without understanding.
I typically spend my leisure time
I am pretty active in my free time. I run a couple of times a week and go to the gym. Also, I love riding my road bike when the weather is nice out.I enjoy doing things outdoors, liking going camping, or going on road trips. I enjoy collecting rocks (its my one nerdy hobby) and traveling to new places. I am pretty mechanically inclined, and occasionally enjoy working on old cars, motorcycles, or old houses. Also, I love to cook and am pretty good at baking.Aside from hobbies, I enjoy spending time with friends and doing things like going out or having dinner parties.
The most influential person in my life has been
I am looking for someone who looks towards the long term, is compassionate, committed, and understanding. Someone who is committed to the idea of working together to build a shared life. Ideally, that person would be intelligent and practical and yet have a romantic side that understand that although life has its necessities there are many things that add value beyond the basics. Also, I would say I am looking for some one who respects differences and realizes what makes for a good relationship is yes to some extent, chemistry, but is mostly effort and a desire to make things good.

The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I try to live a pretty simple and direct life. I like to do well by others and try to bring the best out of people and or any situation I am in. I am hard working and like having goals in life. Although I am aim to do well and be successful, I think a good life is one that has balance. Also I think in addition to putting in some effort to be successful or happy you also need to surround yourself with like minded people.
