I am professionally involved with the wine industry. My work is challenging, rewarding, and very enjoyable. It provides me with the opportunity to meet a lot of extremely interesting people, and as I travel for my job I also get to see a wide variety of cities and towns, large and small. The wine business can be quite competitive, and that does help makes it both challenging and stimulating. When I’m not on the road, phone, or computer for work, I still study the subject of wine. I feel fortunate that my vocation is also one of my passions. In addition, I try to get to the movies when I can, or go to classical music concerts. To keep fit I have a bicycle, and get to the gym whenever I can. In addition to the activities listed in my profile I also enjoy photography, reading, and to travel outside of work. I love to cook and prepare meals that work around wine. I really enjoy that I have work that I can bring home and be happy about what I do. That joy of life extends to my attitude towards relationships. There are few things more enjoyable than spending time in a relationship with someone, where that relationship is filled with respect, affection, and laughter. My definition of an ideal relationship would be one of constant exploration. It would be nice to find a woman who feels that my profile matches hers, but not exactly. It is the differences between people that allow for growth, intellectually and emotionally. A relationship should be about sharing, and learning. I'd like to find someone with a sense of humor, someone whom I can make laugh, as well as a degree of sensitivity. I would like to explore more museums, and cultural events, so a partner who shares those interests would certainly be advantageous. To learn together, or from a partner would be wonderful.
