The one thing I am passionate about...
Just one? I'm a Leo, I'm passionate by nature, although it doesn't always show outwardly. I love helping those I work with; being with family & close friends; celebrating accomplishments & milestones with loved ones; volunteering; the environment, children, animals; classic Mustangs; saving the SS United States
I typically spend my leisure time
Grabbing my camera and just taking a drive, seeing where I'm lead to; traveling & exploring -- waterfalls, historic places, nature, small towns, new cities; watching a good baseball or football game with friends (especially NY Giants & NY Mets); cookouts; dancing; woodworking or working with my hands on something creative; puzzling things out; festivals; reading
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone with a positive attitude who understands that life is about the journey, the people along the way, and how you roll with the challenges that you're presented. Looking to spend time with someone who is able to make me laugh, challenges my mind, knows how to relax and have fun, yet be serious when it's called for...tries to see the good in other people...is self-confident...not afraid to laugh at himself...who can have as much fun playing with the kids as he does with the adults...open to trying new things...compatible interests, not necessarily identical ones.
The first thing people notice about me
I have a warm, friendly personality, and I've been told I have a great smile.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Face Off -- a compilation of short stories from mystery/thriller writers who were paired up to write a story together, either alternating throughout the story, or one starting it and the other finishing. Very hard to accomplish, but was well done.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- family and friends
- being able to do what I love as my career
- recognizing the opportunities that surround me
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
that I'm a creative problem-solver. If there's a difficult way to do something and an easy way, I probably know both because I've usually done it both ways.
Friends Describe me as
Genuine, Optimistic, Perceptive, Spontaneous
A little more about me
I'm a work in-progress. I strive to remain positive, laugh a little more, judge a little less (including myself), work hard but remember it's also important to relax and/or play, try new things, & step a little out of my comfort zone. I can be spontaneous. Sometimes I lead, sometimes I follow. Form my own opinions. Honesty is extremely important to me. I believe everything happens for a reason & when it's supposed to, although it's not always apparent at the time. I'm aiming for more overall balance, fun, & companionship in my life.
