I’ve accomplished a lot in my life. Raised 2 children who I love and adore, and I am now a grandfather of three. I graduated from The University of California Riverside and earned a Masters Degree in School Administration from Cal State San Bernardino. I have been married twice (32 years total), and I single since 2006. I have no anger or bitterness toward either EX. I wish them both the best and I am as happy as I have ever been :-).
I taught for 30 years at the College and JHS level. I taught Communication Studies classes at the College level, and History classes at the JHS level. I have been retired since June 2009 and love my free time. I was elected to serve as a school trustee for a 25,000 student High School District. I was reelected seven times and retired after 32 years of service in 2008.
In Sept. 2009 I bought a new home in the Summerlin area of Las Vegas. I still spend a great deal of time in Southern California where my children, grandchildren, and many friends live. I just purchased a second home in St George UT and share it with my son. It is a beautiful area and I love going up there for a few days every couple of weeks.
My interests are varied. I love to travel and have been taking a couple of major trips a year since I retired. A few of my profile photos were taken on trips I took in the last 18 months. In fact I just returned from a 10 day New Orleans/Western Caribbean cruise...Already booked a one month vacation to Venice Florida for the month of January 2014 and a November 4th 2014 15 day Panama Canal cruise out of Fort Lauderdale Fl to San Diego California! I do love to travel..
Another interest I have is Art and History. While on my trips I have bought some great art for my home. Decorating my home to fit my feel and interest is another important aspect of my life...
I enjoy listening to great music and my tastes are varied. Las Vegas is a great place to do this and I am admirer of such great artists as the Beatles, Simon and Garfunkle, Styx, Chicago, REO Speedwagon, Andrea Bocelli, Sarah Brightman, The Fray, Green Day, and of course Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra.
I am also interested in politics and government (I was a Poli Sci Major in College). I have been a registered Democrat all of my life and consider myself more liberal than conservative. I, however, have many conservative friends and I would never allow politics or religion to get in the way of a relationship. I am not one to argue as I see no value in winning such arguments, we all believe what we believe for various reasons, and so long as you do not try to change me, we will have no problems on any of these issues...
I was raised Catholic and went to Catholic schools for 11 years. I am not a practicing Catholic and do not belong to any organized religion. I believe in following the “Golden Rule”, and treating all people with respect and kindness.
I live a very healthy life style. I work out 4-5 days a week. I eat healthy and would like to find someone that mirrors the same life style.
Let me conclude by saying I am a very affectionate man when in a relationship. I love to hold hands, cuddle while watching a movie, I will give you the best back and neck rub you’ve ever had....I am 100% Italian, and I do believe those genes have made me the affectionate man I am today....
