I'm a fun loving guy that always sees the bright side of situations and believes a sense of humor is essential to life. If I can see that someone is having a bad day, I try to bring them back up by spilling hot coffee on myself or eating a spoonful of cinnamon. Hey anything to make the world a better place!
I like to try new things and go on spontaneous adventures with friends. There's just so much to do and see in this state. I like to stay active by getting up to the mountains for some hiking and biking as well as hitting the gym. I find exercise to be a great stress reliever which also helps boost productivity in other aspects of my life.
When not taking in the fresh air of the mountains, I like to get out with friends for a few beers and laughs, listen to live music, go to festivals, and see new places. I also don't mind having a movie night in every now and then too as I'm kind of a crazy movie buff. Traveling is also something I love to do and aspire to do more of in the future. I've been to 13 countries and am far from reaching my goal.
I hail from the Midwest so I bet you think I love cheese, beer and brats....ok you're right! They're just so good once they hit your lips. I have branched out since then though and also enjoy a good bottle of wine and eating out at new restaurants with food I could never make on my own. It's fun to try and figure out what the ingredients are so I can experiment in my own kitchen. I find cooking for others rewarding and can't wait to share my famous pumpkin cheesecake with them these holidays even though baking really isn't my specialty.
With that Midwestern background comes a certain set of values that were instilled in me. I'm humble, trustworthy, family orientated, and down to earth. I have good friends, a supportive family, and a job I love. I have a great life and want to share it with someone special.
