The one thing I am passionate about...
My love of sports, music, dancing, reading, movies, poetry, closeness with family and a deep passion for cooking. Any of those sound appealing to you? If I was forced to narrow it down to just one thing in particular out of the list it would be music. Give me an MP3 player with 100 TB room for music storage and I would find a way to max the storage out. Music is very special to me in ways I can't put into words. I'm glad this is one area my daughter and I share together already. I can't sing very well at all, but she would stop the world if she could to hear her daddy sing to her. That's amazing in itself.
I typically spend my leisure time
Being able to relax. Rather it be listening to music, watching a movie or even just getting outside to enjoy the beauty that surrounds us all. Although, this cold weather makes getting outside a little less appealing. Can't wait for spring and GOLF!!!!!!!!!!
The most influential person in my life has been
There are a lot of little qualities that I would say are more important than just one big important thing. I would start by saying being upfront and honest are some keys areas for me. I don't want to waste time trying to dig out answers to things. Someone who isn't afraid to take a stand in what they believe is right. Someone who isn't afraid to be spontaneous at times and can throw caution to the wind. Someone who isn't scared to just let go and be who they truly are, without the worries of being judged. Life is about living. Who's willing to grab it with me?
The first thing people notice about me
People notice that I have a certain self-confidence about me. I can easily walk into a crowded room and strike a conversation with anyone; just as easy as making my date feel as if she is the only thing that matters in the world at that point and time. It's about taking perceptions and making them obsolete. All that matters at that moment in time is what the person I am with is saying and doing with me. Everything else is just background noise and music. If we happen to go out on a date, I'd be interested in knowing what you thought was the first thing you noticed about me.
The last book I read and enjoyed
One of my all time favorites, Catch-22 by Joseph Heller. Although, I just finished rereading The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas for like the 15th time. It's another personal favorite and a timeless classic. I know it's a book about the ultimate revenge, but there is more to it than just getting even. The dedication to rise above the challenges Dontes was faced with and learning to overcome the worst of adversities to regain the love of his life; that in itself is amazing enough.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- The most important thing that I am thankful for is my daughter; for she will forever be my world.
- The next most important thing is my parents. I wouldn't be the person I am today if it wasn't for their strength and support.
- Lastly, I'm thankful for the job that I do have. Work is not easy commodity to find during these times.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I love being able to share and talk about experiences in life. However, one small counterpart to being a great talker starts from being a great listener. When you listen to someone share a story with you and you are able to look deep square into their eyes, it tells them you are paying attention to what they have to say. As if they are the most important thing at that particular place and time. This is something I am working on with my daughter. When you talk with someone look into their eyes, grab their attention, speak to them and not at them, and you will get their respect in return.
Friends Describe me as
Funny, Intelligent, Loyal, Spontaneous

If there is anything else would like to ask me, then feel free to either go through the process of getting to know me better or move along. I can't wait to spend my time finally meeting that special someone and to whoever it is and I hope we have some fun along the way. I'll have some new pictures to post after the Christmas holiday!!!
