I have an appreciation for art. I love designing and making things. My main area is ceramics. I can make kick ass pots on the wheel or I can sculpt and hand build too. I attend school at CCS(college for creative studies) in Dt. Detroit and am a ceramics major.
My goal is to turn my home into a pottery studio and work from home. After 9 years in the army and 3 overseas tours I'm kinda burnt out on the whole 'yes sir' thing. I've decided to become my own boss. I saved all of my money from my deployments and I get paid to go to school. Once I've graduated college, life is going to be laid back. Until I'm finished things will be busy for me.
I'm an honest, laid back kind'a guy.
I'm a rare breed. I was a soldier for 9 years and went to war three times... but I never let it make me bitter or cold. I never lost my spark for creativity or my compassion for others. I'm not loud, boastful or arrogant. I have quiet, humble confidence. I take care of myself and those I care about, always placing family first and often times before my own needs. I'm a natural philosopher, poet, artist, warrior, protector, provider, thinker, creator, inventor, animal lover and so much more. I have a lot to offer, but I pick and choose very carefully who will benefit.
I believe in compromise and respectful communication. If you're about drama I'll run away from you as fast as I can.
Intelligence is what I crave in a partner. Looks are also very important. I don't ask for a woman more attractive than myself, but also will not settle for a woman less attractive than myself. I'm looking for my equal in as many ways possible. I don't need a physically strong woman. I'm all the strong my partner will ever need. I do get lower back pain quite a bit though after walking around with 80 lbs of gear overseas for three years so I'd at the very least I'd hope you'd be strong enough to rub out a few kinks in my back. Beyond that... I've got it all handled.
In closing, I'm happy if you've made it this far. If you have, please send me a message only if you think you meet my standards. It doesn't have to be all the way, but if you look at my interests and you don't share at least some of them I'd say odds are we probably aren't going to be compatible.
If you're good at/enjoy playing pool that's a big plus.
I'd rather not do dinner and a movie.
I really like nature so being outside does wonders for my level of comfort when meeting new people.
I love going disc golfing. If you're into that or would like to try it then those are huge bonus points for you.
I'm not going to break my wallet for you on the first date. I don't mind doing so later on... but on the first date its not exactly the brightest idea.
