The one thing I am passionate about...
Life...learning and experiencing new things. My career is dedicated to bettering the lives of others which gives me happiness and purpose. I love the outdoors. I love animals, hiking, fishing, horseback riding, gardening, astronomy and just being active while finding humor and joy in life. I enjoy a long walk with my dog, a drive up the canyon to enjoy the mountains, a night sitting out under the stars with my telescope or a relaxing dinner and drink. I'd like to think there's someone out there who likes the same, if that's you I'd love to meet you!
I typically spend my leisure time
When not working I like to unwind and reset. I like a good book , movie nights snuggled up on the couch, an afternoon hike taking pictures in the mountains, skiing, snowshoeing, etc. I enjoy gardening and landscaping my yard. I like to cook and grill using vegetables and herbs from my garden. Learning new things is my favorite leisure activity. I cherish spending time with my son, I even enjoy a little competition with him on the XBox!
The most influential person in my life has been
A good sense of humor and positive attitude. A quick wit and ability to get my dry humor. Intelligence with the ability to start and continue a real conversation. Honesty and integrity--no lies, no mind games--I am very straight forward and have no hidden agendas, I like the same. Ambition and a personal drive in life with an active, healthy lifestyle. Someone who makes me laugh, gets my jokes, makes me think. Someone to share life with as an equal, to learn new things together, travel new places together, laugh together and enjoy each others company.
The first thing people notice about me
I'm told it's my eyes and smile, I tend to be quiet until I get to know you.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The most recent was The Dark Half by Stephen King. I have read almost all of his books, and enjoy the mystery and unexpected aspect of his stories, not so much the horror and gore. I really enjoy Dan Brown and Steve Berry books with the mix of fiction and history and the thriller adventure twists they throw in the story lines. Dean Koontz thrillers top my list as well.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I'm thankful for my son and the honor of helping grow to be the best man he can be.
- I'm thankful for my close friends, their loyalty and friendship get me through the rough times.
- I'm thankful to have a job I love and that helps other people have a healthy and happy life.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I am really an adventurous, fun spirit hidden beneath a serious, down to business exterior. I work hard at my job and I am good at what I do, but those who get to see the real me outside of work get to share a lot of laughs and have fun!
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I have an 8 year old son who is the center of my world. His father and I divorced after 24 years of marriage where we simply grew apart. I am looking forward to meeting new people and entering the dating scene again, though it's been a long time and it's new and strange to me. I value companionship and long to find a special someone to share my life with, I'm over the superficial silly games, I want to find a man who is comfortable in his skin and wants to share the ups and downs and in-betweens. If you like the sound of that please send a message, prove to me that who I seek is really out there and not a dream!
