The one thing I am passionate about...
God has givven me a passionate for life. Life is too short to sit around watching infomercials and sitting on the computer. I do my fair share of both, but anyone that knows me says I'm the most active, outgoing, well-traveled, spunky and slightly odd guy they've met. That Dos Equis guys is even jealous of me. Whatever I'm doing, I'm doing it 100%, having a blasty blast and not dreaming about the future, but making it happen.A few years doing stand-up comedy & improv in Hollywood has given me a pretty quick sense of humor and plenty of confidence. But I try to remain humble with all the amazing things God has blessed me with.
I typically spend my leisure time
I love to do photography even if I'm not getting paid for it, traveling, trying new restaurants, road trips, hanging out with my son doing anything. I'd love to find someone to introduce me to her world, her interests and learn something new. Would LOVE to take a sushi class in LA. Would love to have time to write a novel (I have a million kooky ideas). And I really wouldn't even mind running for local office. I also love cooking BUT, it's sure a lot more fun to cook for someone... hint hint.. come on...
The most influential person in my life has been
Ambition, passion. It's not about how much money you make, it's about how happy you are. I love seeing the passion in someone's life and their ambition for the things in life, such as a hobby, special interest, or just something that makes them unique.
The first thing people notice about me
Personality - honestly I could care less what people think of me. I did improv & stand up comedy in hollywood for a few years for the simple fact that I enjoy making people laugh and be happy. I think the unfortunate part about being a Christian is that people assume you have to be quiet, conservative and boring. I'm quite the opposite and I have Youtube videos to back it up. :)
The last book I read and enjoyed
I'm re-reading A Case for Christ, and have about 4 other books I've started. I've been on a spiritual kick the last couple of years and have been dissecting my faith from the inside out to see how God speaks to me and what His plans are for me. I also read a lot of travel books since my real job and photography jobs take me a lot of places. I'm also reading Big God by Britt Merrick & Crazy Love by Francis Chan... both pastors of churches up in my area.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- God - who has helped bring me peace of mind, who has helped me maintain my health and to succeed in life more than I would have ever hoped.
- My Son - he has helped me realize what it means to be a man, and what is really important in my life
- My health - I realize how very lucky I am, at 35 to have perfect vision, be on no medications, a full set of hair and generally healthy
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Being a Christian and having a wicked sense of humor do not have to be mutually exclusive. In fact if I can't make you laugh, I will reward you with sushi, new shoes or just tickle you until you do laugh.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I'm a pretty simple guy. I love life. I get stir crazy and have no patience for those who let their life go by. I'm confident but humble. I really do love spoiling a woman with affection, and the one I'm with will never forget that she's #1 in my heart. I'm a passionate person in career, love and everything I take on. I have 35% custody of my son and have a good relationship with his mother and still go on trips with her family . I'd love to meet someone who is stable, normal, fun, goofy and has passion & ambition in their own life. It'd be great if you weren't vegetarian, as I love to eat, and make sure you have a valid passport
