I'm educated, intelligent, responsible, honest, hard working, kind, independent, sensitive, down to earth and I can usually laugh at myself (too often!). I am a product of my past, the first 18 years of which was spent on a small farm in Illinois. I still cling to those midwestern values of sensibility, hard work, kindness and down-to-earth reality. I came to LA about 20 years ago.
I spent about 11 years working for the government and in private practice but decided to give my hobby a try as a new career in 2000 and spent 4 years in the wine business, importing, selling and teaching. I also started teaching wine courses at UCLA Extension. However, in 2005 I was pulled back to the legal practice for a few years working with some great people on a large Ponzi sheme case. After 3 years, I had raised enough capital to start my own wine business, buying and selling old & rare wines.
I really love great wine, food and travel (and so should you). I am very active physically, lifting weights, biking, hiking and running, one or more of which I do just about every day. I love most any activity outside, but really enjoy the challenge of golf. I also don't mind getting dirty, whether fixing something on the house, car or working in the yard. I love the fall in the Midwest, but I'll take the weather out here year round, and throw in a college football game and it's even better.
I'm also active mentally, learning as much as I can about wine, food, people, finance, life and the world. I love to travel and learn from different cultures. I really believe that we have a bit of a distorted view of the world and that really comes through in travel and experiencing another cultures. I like music but my interests are very eclectic, with anything from Radiohead to Van Morrison to Saint Germain (love KCRW). I also like to cook, but I'm a much better helper and eater. I also love to try different dishes. I like to have intellectual conversations as well as watch sunsets and movies at home. I moved to Santa Monica four years ago after owning a house in Redondo Beach, and would like to meet someone in this area (i.e., within 10 miles). My recent venture as a small business owner and my thirst for a good workout or ride means that I don’t have enough time for a commuting relationship.
I want to make a connection with a woman that I can share everything, build a relationship, trust, treasure and count on. My best friend and lover. I'm looking for someone that is witty and smart, is down-to-earth, natural, athletic and enjoys being active whether it be inside or out and is looking to be in a long-term relationship. I am not interested in dating anyone with children (living with them) or that wants to have children.
