The one thing I am passionate about...
I always have a hard time answering this question...I have a lot of varied interests but I can't pinpoint the one or two things that drive me per se. I love to travel, learn new things, can be up for a museum tour, live music, a sports game, a great meal with some wine, or would be just as happy staying in relaxing or entertaining friends.
I typically spend my leisure time
There are many more countries I would like to visit across all continents - so 2 - 3 things I most enjoy doing are pretty much all travel related...whether it is to visit my parents who live in a different country, or traveling with friends (in or out of the US), or just traveling to a hot location for a few days of R&R...
The most influential person in my life has been
Integrity/honesty -- without this, I don't believe that any relationship will have a strong foundation from which to build upon.
The first thing people notice about me
My laughter -- I've been told it is contagious...
The last book I read and enjoyed
For fun - I most enjoy a great John Grisham novel -- mystery, suspense, legal intrigue -- the current read is an oldie, "The Associate". For work - I try to mix it up between leadership books or new concept books...the last few I've picked up but have yet to complete are "The Shift" and "Thinking Fast and Slow"....
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Supportive and loving parents who are healthy...
- A sound mind...
- Close friends and a career that continues to keep me challenged...
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I can be emotional too...I'm typically very calm, cool, and collected -- takes a lot for me to really get mad or rattled but I do have an emotional side. Life is too short -- I've just learned to put a lot in persepctive...
Friends Describe me as
Dependable, Easy-Going, Optimistic, Outgoing
A little more about me
If we're lucky - we'll have another 50+ years of adventures to go on together -- I'm hoping to meet a life partner who is confident, funny, honest and down to earth. I know -- so cliche -- but doesn't world adventures sound exciting? I'm ready...are you?
