I am a chill guy; I like to hang out, cook dinner for friends, drink a little wine, and have interesting conversations. I grew up in Western New York, went to college in Louisiana, culinary school in San Francisco, and have lived in LA for the past 8 years.
I used to cook at some pretty high-end restaurants, but after doing that for almost 10 years I decided that was not the way I wanted to spend my life so I got my teaching credential from CSUN and am now a high school teacher.
Although I stay pretty busy with work, in my spare time, I like to be outdoors in nature. I love hiking, camping, go for a stroll in the park, a local farmer's markets, the beach, or to play tennis (I don't play well, but it is still fun). In the last few months I have been trying to get back into playing piano.
Education and intelligence are super important to me. If you are materialistic, and, or need others approval / attention for your own happiness - it won't work out.
Coffee and conversation make a pretty good first date, but I also like to enjoy local parks, hiking trails, I could cook dinner, pretty much anything that's good for conversation and getting to know each other.
