I am a native New Yorker, having grown up in Westchester County, and currently living in Manhattan.
I would describe myself as a very outgoing, sociable, friendly, and fun-loving individual, trying to enjoy all aspects of life to the fullest! I love to try new things, and I always strive to learn something new every day.
I consider myself very “old school” in certain aspects. I come from a big family, that is extremely close, and my relationship with them is very important to me. Being raised in a good home, with morals and values have helped to shape me into the man I am today. I am a firm believer in respect and honesty, and I treat others how I would want to be treated, so I look for the same in a partner. I am looking for someone that appreciates these same views, and holds family in the same high regard.
I joined POF to help me meet people, as my work schedule sometimes hinders my ability to do so in person. I am currently a Food & Beverage Director for a membership based private club in Manhattan, which sometimes requires a unique work schedule with extended hours. Regardless of the long hours, I am dedicated to my job, and truly love what I do. I have always had a passion for Food & Beverage, and would describe myself as a “foodie.” I enjoy going out to eat, and love trying new restaurants & cuisines.
As for my social interests, I am an avid sports fan, who loves to both participate in and watch all types of sports, with my favorite being football. I am a huge NY Jets fan, and I also like the Knicks, Rangers, and Mets, but will watch any game with an open mind, and enjoy it! I have been an athlete for most of my life, and continue to try and stay active by going to the gym, and participating in social sporting events whenever possible. Although I love to stay active and enjoy going out to restaurants/bars in my free time, I can just as easily stay in and watch the game or a movie. I also enjoy traveling, especially cruising, and like to vacation in unique locales, preferably ones with topical beaches on which I can relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of NYC for awhile.
Overall, I am a very easy going, fun loving guy who is always willing to try new things, and experience all life has to offer. I am new to this whole online dating thing, so please forgive me if I left anything out. If you want to know anything else, or if you think we share similar interests, etc. please feel free to message/chat with me!

I would suggest dinner and drinks, but I am up for anything!
