I'm an easy-going and relaxed guy that enjoys hanging out with friends, exploring the wonders of Northern California, impromptu wine dinners and discovering that great new restaurant or winery. Of course nothing beats just spending time with my kids (when they choose to grace me with a visit).
I own a small business in the Napa Valley and also spend time in Calistoga. While I'm fairly busy, I still make time for the important stuff. I have a fairly sharp wit that’s been known to have a sarcastic edge from time to time. Even so, people say I'm very easy to talk to (I hope so since I'm in the hospitality business).
I have done some traveling over the years but nowhere near enough. I look forward to going back to Alaska, getting to Australia for an extended visit, Italy and at least of couple of trips to Hawaii thrown in for good measure.
I'm looking for a woman that is open, honest, fun, witty, sarcastic and is looking to live life! We all have our own life experiences and a big part of chemistry is how those life experiences blend together. While the ideal would be to find someone fairly local to me, I’m also open to finding a woman that’s willing to re-locate or at least do slightly more than half the travel. Since I work in Napa Valley I would love to find someone interested in exploring the wine country together and all that it has to offer. A love and genuine interest in food and wine would be great! And yes, I'm happy to do the cooking!
Online dating seems to be a necessary but somewhat unnatural way of meeting women. I know most woman want to be sought out and feel like the guy is putting in most of the effort. I really enjoy putting in effort but would prefer to know the effort is not falling on deaf ears! Developing a good relationship takes equal desire and effort from the start. I'm looking for someone that is willing to work on a true partnership.
If I "like" a picture or send you a short email, it's my way of asking if you're interested. Really no different than if we exchanged glances over produce or across a busy room.
If I have sparked an interest, let me know and we can go from there. I promise I’m not very shy or hesitant.
