California-born but raised on the East Coast. I'm a very motivated guy; I'm ambitious and pursue my goals fervently. In my off time, I'm laid back but active. I spend alot of time doing athletic things; soccer, snowboarding, water skiing. I thought about it the other day and my favorite place in the world to be is on my motorcycle. Work allows me to travel some which gives me a great opportunitty to see other places. My favorite destination so far has been Scotland.
I have a sense of humor and some sarcasm is OK but sincerety is a must. I highly value stimulating conversation, be it about travel, business development or current events - I always like meeting someone with their own opinions and independence.
Sorry, but I'm sure I wouldn't get along with couch potatos - I need someone who can keep up. If this sounds like you, I'm receptive.
I'm a fairly athletic guy, so for a first date, I would set up something with a degree of physical activity so we could learn about each other. There's nothing like a challenging experience to help two people to get to know each other.
We could follow up with a laid back meal, possibly Mexican - I like a casual and relaxed atmosphere for a first date.
