The one thing I am passionate about...
I believe in treating others in the way in which I wish to be treated. Though this is a broad answer it is intentional because it covers so many aspects of what really matters to me. I am honest almost to a fault, though I have become much better at keeping my thoughts to myself when it is in my best interest. My job as a father is the most important job I have and I am deeply proud of the young woman my daughter has become. I have a curious mind that is often seeking answers though not always finding them. Part of that curiosity is I have a broad range of interests that I would enjoy telling you about and learning about yours.
I typically spend my leisure time
Woodworking, fishing, cooking
The most influential person in my life has been
I am optimistically seeking the best relationship of my life because I believe that it is yet to come. Wanting to meet that person that is my best friend, lover and companion. I want to marvel at how at ease I feel around you and look forward to seeing you when we are apart. No one said ever they were looking for someone who was a dishonest, untrustworthy, ugly, cheater. You should be honest, loyal, trustworthy, kind, attractive, take care of your self, and be capable of emotional intimacy. Hopefully you are just as comfortable sleeping in a tent as a nice hotel room, can bait your own hook and wear make up, has a passion for adventure.

A little more about me
I have lived a rich and varied life, I am energetic, enthusiastic for life and optimistic. A sample list of things I have done, hiked on the Pacific Crest Trail, fished commercially in Alaska, played collegiate soccer, traveled in Europe and the U.S., catered a couple of parties for 5000, built high rises and clean rooms. I can cook most anything and often make up my own recipes, I am also a good baker having made some of the more challenging things in the Cake Bible. After devoting the last 20 years to raising kids I am starting to focus on me. I am working hard at becoming fit once again and am enjoying it immensely.
