I am very simply a guy who values and appreciates the impact my family and friends have had in my life. I love my work, which is providing counseling for severely mentally ill and substance abusing clients. I received my Masters degree in Social Work from NYU. I love making people smile and laugh. Life presents many challenges, the person your with should make you rise above those challenges and bring out the best in you. I love to meet someone who is a go-getter, strong-willed and determined. A great relationship is much like a great painting, you marvel at its beauty, you treasure it and it lasts forever. I want to meet that special woman to treasure and spend the rest of my life with.
