Have been dedicated to my work as a residential real estate broker & owner for the past 5+ years and recognize the importance of having the right partner in my corner of the ring. Am no longer a competitive swimmer but still enjoy great physical conditioning for the many benefits it provides. Also noteworthy, am highly educated and always enjoy learning and personal growth. Also, warm caring and affectionate; A pleasant and considerate companion as well. Generally, a humorous, good natured outlook. As you can tell by my pictures, still look like I'm 42. I can cook with the best of them and enjoy good food- either out or in. Have never been highly cultural although I am somewhat interested in classical art and music. Washington DC is one of the most interesting and finest places to live in the country and there is much to do and enjoy here. I realize that the golden oldies are not true classical music but feel very fortunate to have experienced them. Also enjoy movies- either on satellite TV or in the theatre. Have disdain for sitcoms and reality tv and refuse to give it a chance. My greatest vice is an obsession with the Washington Wizards professional basketball team, and the Redskins when they are good. Finally, I tend to be ambitious & over-reach in my endeavors. This applies to making money as well. I sometimes feel a lack of inspiration without that special someone to help temper a competitive world and make it all worthwhile.
