I was born was raised on the east coast. Everyone in my family is successful in their own way. My parents are my role models, but it took me a while to figure it out. I have been the best in the world at multiple things. I buy books in every country I travel to. I rent multiple storage units and they are full of artisan pieces I collected. My ex-wife is a great mother, and we continue to work on the relationship we need to have. My favorite long term goal is the father daughter dance. I have the easiest job in the world, yet it was one of the hardest to attain. I have friends that live in village communities, that have never had electricity. (I think of them when I want things more than I need them.) I like the tension you feel in black box theater. I was a rodeo guy. I like nice suits, high tech gear, and not a big fan of large live events. I love the exhilaration of long distance ocean swims, back country hikes, good single track days, but love taking the occasional class like Zumba, spinning, or something that I know I am going to be the outside my comfort zone. I am an amateur ultra endurance athlete, that swears that every race is my last..until I recover. I speak multiple languages, but admit that none came easy. I am fortunate to have the academic background that I have. I met someone on this site that I really liked, but distance was too great, and it still saddens me. I am looking for a brave, compassionate, beautiful woman that applauds the underdog, has a personal belief system, workouts for balance and grace, allows mistakes, can grasp reality, loves to laugh, or could have a romantic night that may involve a kid. (They make black dresses and suits in every size.) I have no idea exactly what she looks like, what country she hails from, what race she is, if she has a child, or where she is at...at this moment. If you have seen her, know her, or can tell me where to find her, please contact me so that I can meet her. I have a lot to share with her,..
