The one thing I am passionate about...
Building my business and taking care of my customers, intimacy with the woman I love, dependability. I spend a lot of my working days by myself or with a customer so that is why I would like to spend some personal time with a special lady several days a week.
I typically spend my leisure time
Playing golf and tennis, walking and playing with my dog, working around the house and yard, watching tv or going to the movies, reading a book or magazine
The most influential person in my life has been
The woman I date has to be self confidant and feel good about herself. That will allow her to openly and honestly communicate with me, which is essential to a solid, loving relationship. I am looking for that special woman who wants to be around me, but doesn't need to be around me to be happy.
The first thing people notice about me
In business, people can determine very early that I am a trustworthy business person. In a more personal social setting, they notice that I am easy to speak with and comfortable in my skin.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I am now reading "How to Win Friends and Influence People" by Dale Carnegie. 75 years in print and still a classic. Also just read "1001 Things you always wanted to know about the Bible but never thought to ask" by J. Stephen Lang. Very interesting how many stories and phrases in secular culture actually originated in the Bible.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Being raised in a loving household with parents who loved me and took good care of me and supported me emotionally.
- My house painting business that provides me a good living, allows me to meet a lot of different people, and gives me a lot of personal freedom.
- My good health, because without that nothing else matters.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I wish that people could get my dry and odd sense of humor. People often think I am serious when I am really making a joke. So much for my stand up career!

A little more about me
I am a Colorado native and love to spend time outdoors. Since I have no children, and own my business, I have the ability to make my own schedule and do things during the week day. That is great for meeting people for breakfast or lunch, a favorite of mine. I also take advantage to do things when the crowds of people are at work.
