I like to read, watch and play sports, exercise (swim, bike, weightlift), cook, camp & hike, concert band performances (e.g. Navy band), comedy shows, wine festivals. I am generally open to most activities. My goals include raising a son (currently 14 years old) and seeing him become a happy and productive adult. I have acheived a good bit professionally and aspire to continue producing/success on new challenges and learning new things and retire before I am 70. I try to keep a healthy work / life balance. Probably my most unique characteristic is my play/fun factor - I am corny and have a passion and talent for games (board, cards, billiards, all sports).
I enjoy classical music (concert band marches), classic rock (but not pop rock or screach-metal rock), funk, and jazz.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Meet at a shop where we could have a drink (wine, beer, coffee, etc.) and chat. Lower noise environment. I enjoy the outdoors so if it is to be a mild day meeting at a park would be nice as well.
