The one thing I am passionate about...
Working with kids. I always played sports as a kid, and I was lucky enough to have the ability and opportunity to play a varsity sport in college. I had some great coaches along the way and it's nice that the roles are reversed now. It's rewarding to teach kids challeging new things and to see them enjoy playing as much as I did.
I typically spend my leisure time
Reading, excercising, talking or seeing friends or family, walking, driving, traveling, dining out, cooking, hiking, biking and being outdoors. Then other times nothing's better than being at home chillin' on the couch.
The most influential person in my life has been
Of course it is that intangable quality that's most important. If that sounds like a cop out then just be down-to-earth, sweet, passionate, confident, vulnerable, honest, sexy, daring, trusting and beautiful. You have to be beautiful, but only within my own definition of the word, not anyone elses. Your imperfections may attract me most.
The first thing people notice about me
I know what I want to write here now but only because I read it in another profile. I'm not about to copy it. Ask me later, though.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I think you should know right away that given my chosen profession, I read a pathetic amount of actual books. I'm much more likely to pick up a paper or magazine. Having said that, I read Reefer Madness by Eric Schlosser and it was excellent. Schlosser also wrote Fast Food Nation, which I'm embarrassed to admit I never finished. He's an investigative journalist of the very highest order and I really admire his work. Reefer Madness was certainly eye-opening in exposing some of our society's hipocracies. I just started A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius. I'll let you know how it is.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My family and the people I love
- My experiences so far
- My opportunities
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I try not to judge anyone too quickly.

A little more about me
Look, I like to think that I'm a pretty down-to-earth, normal, decent guy who just happens to be single right now. I deserve the attention of someone wonderful and I can make the right person very happy. I'm not too hard to please. This is my first shot at this, but here seems as good a place as any to meet someone really special. Here's to us both!
