I'm a father of two beautiful children, nonfiction writer/journalist, and fitness enthusiast/longtime cyclist. I like to laugh and to be around others who enjoy doing the same. I love irony and sarcasm, too—but life's recent experiences have especially softened me. Nowadays I also identify with words like empathy and humility.
I enjoy smart conversation, interesting perspectives, articulate people, creative minds, and truthfulness. I love to read, and I also make sure to regularly get on my bike (I have lots of pals in the cycling community). Really I enjoy almost any outdoor activity that involves exercise (throw in yoga, too). I also love movies and all forms of the arts--when there's enough time (school-age kids, work, and so on), and like almost any middle-aged fitness enthusiast I love to eat great food! I like pro/college sports just fine but am no longer drawn to watch such stuff for hours on end (rather be doing than sitting).
Work and my previous, long-term marriage both fueled opportunities to see many parts of the world. I like road trips that take me far and near. Even without a wonderful woman in my life, I consider myself lucky. Every day is a gift. Finding a great partner could make each day that much more meaningful!
