The one thing I am passionate about...
I find life and people intriguing. I embrace differences and enjoy exploring cultures. I've swam with sharks, had an overnight at a bushman's camp with the tribe, been out in Mokoro's to experience floating markets, explored the lavender fields, and even fly fishing in the Colorado River ( poor fish, some have no lips after I was there ). Are you interested in joining me on the next adventure?
I typically spend my leisure time
On a beautiful Sunday off from work, I would really enjoy having a yummy brunch with my sweetie and then head off to the mangroves for a great afternoon of paddle boarding (SUP, stand up paddle boarding). An early tee time and 18 holes ( seriously, I believe in playing by your own rules, if you want a mulligan on each hole, I'm all about that...if you're a serious player, and can't laugh, well.....) There is so much to do here and am open for suggestions
The most influential person in my life has been
I am looking for a manly man ( can I say that ), that is a driven, confident, and intelligent individual, who is strong, yet sensitive enough to feel emotion and love. A sense of humor is a bonus. A man who is secure enough to make mistakes and bring your authentic self to the table.
The first thing people notice about me
People usually notice my eyes or hair on a rainy day ;) I do have a dry sense of humor and am usually laughing and making others laugh as well.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The question was the last book I enjoyed, I have read others since but really enjoyed and fascinated by The Book Thief and Unbroken, both were read prior to the movies ever coming out. I enjoyed The Book Thief and the narrative taken from such an interesting perspective and the voices of the characters in it. When I read Unbroken, I kept going back to the library of congress to see that it was filed under biography. I could not believe one person could persevere what he had gone through and come out alive !
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am thankful to have laughter and love in my life with wonderful people.
- I am thankful for having choices each and everyday.
- I realize life is way too short and so I am thankful for each day I am given.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I am a very proper goof ball ;)

A little more about me
I was born and raised in the Chicagoland area and have 2 grown boys. One lives in Nashville and the other lives in Denver. They are very protective of me :) Actually, they have threatened to do a profile for me and have shoved me out the proverbial door and into the dating site.
