The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about learning new things. I love to read and expand my understanding of a few favorite subjects: theater, cinema, real estate development, housing & studying/planning/making responsible communities and bettering the ones that already exist. I also like to reflect on humanity, my spirituality, & wondering what change I will be passionate to become, God has not completely revealed it yet. I believe in God and appreciate having a personal private relationship with him. Connecting with military veterans especially military veterans pursuing education & helping them through their journey in higher education to better their lives.
I typically spend my leisure time
Live performance, movie, or concert. I enjoy talking with & listening to my students dreams, plans & issues on their road to success. I am kinda a geek & like to read up on certain academic subjects. I have been known to frequent a garage sale or two but I would never admit that to my guy friends. Spend time with family & friends catching up. I work on a heavy civil transportation project right now and it is long hours but I find the work fascinating.
The most influential person in my life has been
This is difficult to sum up in one quality, I guess the important quality would be: Chemistry, it would be important to have chemistry with the other person. (Also, an up to date profile picture is a must for responses if no profile picture then maybe your not ready to date .. just sayin).
The first thing people notice about me
My club foot, missing eye, and cleft palet........Totally joking ... active, driven, ecclectic, my energized personality...desire to avoid conflict, passionate around friends quiet around strangers.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Rainmaker by John Grisham ... I'm a sucker for the underdog.. But Joe's all time favorites are definetly: The Count of Monte Cristo, Shogun, Tai Pan, & Azteca ... all are novels but wow they were Epic.
The three things which I am most thankful for
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I am shy and reserved in certain every day rituals and subjects, however, I have lived an ambitious life so I am accustomed to fast moving, passionate, high energy situations as well, a total type A person. So I value the personal, professional, and family relationships I have because life is too short and who knows what is going to happen..So my mind set is to enjoy the people that I have in my life.
Friends Describe me as
Ambitious, Intelligent, Loyal, Passionate
A little more about me
I am fun loving, caring, and purpose driven. I am big on manners, treating others how I want to be treated, down to earth, and a goof, love U S C sports, would like a partner that is not intimidated by and is willing to do outdoor activities....camp, hike, roller coasters, etc... I work in West LA & live in North OC so I am open with getting to know my matches in LA or Orange County. I am divorced and have my awesome kids alternating weekends :)
