The one thing I am passionate about...
Spin, tennis, ski, SCUBA, read, garden, cook, softball, repeat. I love to eat out and discover new favorite places. I also enjoy spending an evening in my yard with close friends or neighbors catching up over a nice bottle(s) of wine. Yes, I'm friends with my neighbors - Alameda is really a modern version of Mayberry (as I get older I realize fewer of us get that reference). Fun vacations: skiing in Andorra, Copper Mountain or Utah; diving in Costa Rica or Hawaii. Sharing interests makes things easier but isn't a deal breaker. I just think activities are more fun with someone you can go home and shower with afterwards :-)
I typically spend my leisure time
In 2012 I spent my leisure time diving for two weeks in Hawaii, spent a week skiing in Utah, and spent a week hiking and diving in Costa Rica. It was a big travel year, but I work too much to not play.. I'll travel alone but would welcome company.. suit up and let's go...
The most influential person in my life has been
A confident man with a great smile will grab my attention. Holding my attention is simple: be genuine, and grounded in who you are. Have goals and integrity. Be generous, and kind. I want nothing less than a great friendship, mind-bending intimacy, shared values, and a positive outlook..we shouldn't settle, right? And guys, chivalry is sexy. If you want to explore if there is a spark, ask me out. :-)
The first thing people notice about me
I smile easily and have good, positive energy.
The last book I read and enjoyed
"Unbroken" by Laura Hillenbrand. It's a true story of the ex-Olympian, war hero, Louis Zamperini. Louis survived years as a POW in Japan. The story reveals the inner strength of the human spirit. It's a great read.
