The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm passionate about family, friends, finding ways to continue learning and growing, good food, music, movies, creating, finding someone who?s strong and happy with who they are, who wants the same in a partner, laughing lots, giving the benefit of the doubt and seeing things in a positive light.
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy being outside - biking, hiking, hanging out at the beach or in the redwoods. I also really enjoy exploring the bay area, there are so many interesting neighborhoods full of culture, food, music, people, and art. I love making and watching movies and being creative in general - So many things to experience!
The most influential person in my life has been
A calm and strong sense of self confidence combined with a positive and generous spirit. Someone who finds joy in the little things, has a creative and energetic personality and can enjoy staying in as much as going out.
The first thing people notice about me
My positive, warm disposition.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Art of Racing in the Rain - it's a touching story, narrated by a dog, about his master's heroic struggle to keep custody of his daughter after his wife dies. It's set in the world of car racing, wrapped in the contentious struggles of selfish vs. selfless decisions, and ultimately it all boils down to doing the right thing, no matter how difficult. It's written so simply, with such subtle beauty and deep emotion. I recommend it (if you can't tell...)
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Family: Mom, Dad, Brother, Sister, extended family and most of all, my two boys.
- My physical, spiritual and psychological health and wellness.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I'm pretty transparent, what you see is what you get. But if I have to choose something...I'd say it's that underneath my friendly, calm exterior, I am strong and resilient.
Friends Describe me as
Dependable, Genuine, Hard Working, Optimistic
A little more about me
I'm a stable guy - happy with who I am, optimistic about the future, and blessed to have so many good things happening in my life. I'd like someone to share the adventure with - someone who's as positive and happy as I am, and who wants to connect in a meaningful way.
