I'm interested in all kinds of outdoor activities, I especially like the beach and water sports; swimming, boating, skiing, etc... I also like camping, hiking and trail running. In the winter I love to snow ski, but prefer to travel to a warmer climate...lol. I'm an Army veteran of over 10 years and spent time overseas, including Iraq, Panama, Berlin and Grenada. I try to be active in veteran organizations and most interested in helping young men and women with transitioning back to civilian life after serving abroad, primarily returning Iraq and Afghanistan vets. I have been a manager in government for over 20 years now and enjoy my profession.
I like all kinds of music; classic rock and country is my favorite genre, however. I love to read and am a big James Patterson, Patricia Cornwell and Dean Koontz fan. I also like live music, dancing, festivals and concerts as well as fine dining, wine and candlelight evenings. I love to travel and explore new places and meet interesting people. I am an animal lover - my daughter and I recently rescued a dog from a local shelter, he's a labrodesian (part Lab - part Rhodesian) and of course he’s the smartest dog in the world! ;-)
I'm looking for a steady, long-term relationship with a woman who is fun, active and has the time to invest in a serious relationship. Like everyone else, I have a very busy life, but I am ready to invest the time necessary to develop a meaningful relationship with the right woman. I have a 23 year old son who is on his own for the most part and an 18 year old daughter who is in her first year of college, and lives with me full-time, but of course has her own social life. I am very proud of them both.
I like many quotes, some famous and some not so famous, below are two of my favorites:
"There are no limits...there are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them." ~ Bruce Lee ~
"If you ain't living on the edge, you're taking up to much room...." ~ Gypsy~
