After a long-term marriage and three great kids, I am single again and hoping to meet a great new friend and more. I now own my own business after many years as a consultant and citizen of corporate America and I really enjoy the benefits of being my own boss. I try to keep up with the world around me (regardless of how disturbing that can be a lot of the time), and I am very honest and always willing to work hard for anything that matters to me. I am a good cook and an excellent handyman (I once even built a house in the woods of Ithaca, NY) and really enjoy fixing and building all sorts of things. My kids have been my priority for a really long time but they seem to need / want less of my time as they move toward independence. There are few things that I don't enjoy doing and almost nothing that I won’t try at least once with someone I want to spend time with. I love live music, the Red Sox and Patriots and work hard at having a good time as frequently as possible. I love to travel and have been lucky to do a bit of it but still have many places to see. Rather than tell you that I really am all of the great things that you are looking for, I hope you’ll take a chance and contact me so that we can learn a lot more about each other. Who knows, we might be a good combination. I look forward to hearing from you.
