I’ve spent the last few years raising two wonderful kids and now, one is off to college to med school and the other is on is not far away. I know I’ve had a big impact on their lives – and my kids’ warm smiles and big hearts I know my investment paying off. Now just like Cat Stevens Cats in the Cradle, you turn around and the kids are gone, yup, he’s ‘grown up just like me’. As the stages of my children shift, now I finally feel the time is right to bring someone special into my life. I’ve dated, but children always played a roll. Career wise, I’m a successful engineering manager working in hi-tech. That's the basics, 2 kids, successful job, emotionally/financia lly secure, and now you've seen my picture-are you interested yet? Ok the good stuff--I like a wide variety of activities: keeping fit, four wheeling, jet ski, boating, going to the theater, live music, exploring restaurants I even take a few cooking classes-yes I cook (wink). My true passion is for the outdoors, adventure, scuba diving, and best of all traveling. I've been many places in the world, though never enough. Beyond the "thrills and spills", I'm loving, honest, passionate and romantic. Nothing's better than holding hands with someone special. When you get my first love letter you'll understand.
