Hi! I am a divorced father of 3 great kids who I love and support. I enjoy my career and my hobbies of working out, playing drums, riding motorcycles and gardening. I love music, exercising, travel and nature. My varied interests should tell you that I like just about everything, but I really have a passion for music, art and self-expression.
I play with numerous musical groups of all styles, including night clubs, festivals, musicals, feature concerts, and church groups. I was once a professional musician, so my musical "hobby" is taken seriously, not just a night out with the boys. I have a wide circle of semi-professional musicians who I network with, all great people who share my passion for live music. There are weeks when I might perform or rehearse every night, or I can be off for a few weeks. I enjoy both... Oh, and by the way, I don't do drugs!
I have a great career as a design engineer, going on 30 years with a great company. I enjoy my work because it is stable, creative and flexible. I hope to retire at some point so I can find a nice place on a beach, and possibly do consulting work and play music for extra income.
I exercise to stay fit and feel good. I'm not into it so much to be annoying, but believe in keeping my body lean and muscular by working out daily - 30 minutes of running, free weights, P90X, swimming, biking, yoga, etc.
I am a hard worker and lead a busy lifestyle, always active. Most people think I am much younger because I'm always on the go. Although I generally eat healthy, I like all kinds of food including sushi and occasional greasy burgers, and like many kinds of beer and wine.
I like keeping things simple and fun. I am easy going and down to earth. I also like variety, not doing the same things all the time.
I enjoy being comfortable and casual, but also occasionally dressing up. I enjoy occasional sports events, Packers, Badgers, Brewers, of course! I don't watch much TV but do like a good movie. I love getting lost in a good book, especially on a beach or poolside cruise!
I'm romantic and patriotic. I like trying new things, being flexible, spontaneous and open-minded. I am a positive person with a big heart.
I would like to meet someone who likes to exercise, stays active, independent, balanced and happy as I am so we can spend time together enjoying activities, and also maintain a high level of independence. I have grown to appreciate my independence after being married for 24 years and divorced 4 years since.
Women who share a passion such as playing music, art, photography, singing or riding motorcycles really intrigue me, although I've never dated one!
By the way, no booty calls or hook-ups (yes, there are just as many women looking for that, LOL), and women looking to be rescued from Africa or some other country other than the great USA, please don't contact me!
I see lots of women on here looking for "normal, sincere guys, even friends, yet so many of you fail to respond to a simple, nicely-written, kind email to say hello. Just to clue you in, a simple response doesn't mean you're committing to anything, not even a date. However, a lack of response tells me you may not really be who you say you are, and I form an opinion from that and move on. Basic communication!
Anything you'd like to know, please ask! Bye for now and good luck!
