Aaaand here we go with online dating.
My self-summary? I'm grounded and confident in what I do and my friends would likely describe me as driven, generous, and mellow, and simple. I'd have to agree, but I'm not so driven that I lose sight of the priorities in life, which are people.
I value hard work, family, experiencing other cultures, and treating people well. Chivalry's not dead. I'm also a college football junkie; USC fan all the way, baby! I'm into cars and nice things; having a few tasteful items rather than a lot of crap is the way to go. However, I don't believe in being cheap. In addition to my career, I'm into business and finance, investments and the stock market.
I like music, play music, writing music, going to the symphony, going to a Weezer concert, eating at nice restaurants, cooking, and traveling. Oh, include surfing, golf, weight lifting and exercise, the ocean, the snow, the desert, and Catalina Island in that list also :)
I'm not into clubbing (that was for my twenties) nor hiking or camping (have tried it, not a fan, but will go on occasion). Unfortunately, I know the camping/hiking thing is a deal breaker for many in Santa Barbara. I'd rather, however, be up front. For me, though, I'd much rather go to Catalina, Europe or spend time in some new country I want to explore.
So, that's me in a nutshell. I'm down to earth and mellow, a pinch sarcastic, and at times witty. I'm living life one fun day at a time. I'm not looking for a hook-up, so if I send you a message I want to make sure that my intentions are clear from the get-go :)
