A favorite song lyric sums up much about me. "Imagine, the dreams we've had since we were children are real; it's magic."-UL
To characterize myself, I am faithful, world traveled & cultured, adventurous, an independent spirit, curious, diligent, optimistic, ready to settle down, and full of dreams to achieve. Maybe the right girl will find this charming and conversation starting?
(If quick qualification matters, I have no children, no addictions, live on my own, have a grad degree, a job, a car, a recommend, a calling, attend Institute, and am generally drama free. However, I am not cookie-cutter and full of personality)
I have lived in CA, WA, UT, WA, UT, Thailand, FL, OR, FL, HI, Guangzhou and Shanghai China, Phoenix, and back to FL. I've also visited Bangladesh, Cambodia, Vietnam, Sweden, Holland, Germany, Austria, Canada, and Mexico.
God’s creations and man’s cultures fascinate me are often at the root of my thoughts. “What ifs?” are my favorite questions! Visiting cultural and historical sites around the world is the perfect weekend activity.
International business with Asia, specifically China, is my professional training. I manage the purchasing and logistics for a cosmetics company and work with China daily. My Bachelors is in History from BYU and my MBA is from the University of Hawai’i.
Mikey is my roommate. He's a Jardine's Parrot, which has been my buddy since a hatchling over 16 years ago.
Ice hockey is my favorite sport to play. I love a game of catch. I broke the Camp Wente Scout Camp mile swim record when I was 12 and still have a decent butterfly.
My creative outlets include photography, writing, and Legos.
I am really into 60's bands. Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, Jake Shimabukuro, and Alice and the Glass Lake have kept my faith in modern music alive. My favorite concerts have been: Jimmy Eat (span style="font-weight:bold;")World, Jake Shimabukuro,(/( span)span) and Aquabads.
I am laid back, somewhat of an introvert, with a dry sense of humor, I am a "nice guy" due to my upbringing and understanding of the Gospel.
I take my activity in the Church seriously wherever I am in the world. The Lord our God Liveth, Loveth, and Reigneth.
A few of my rules of life:
1) Start everyday thanking God for the day and telling oneself it is going to be an awesome day.
2) Live as if life is going to turn out for the right; live your dreams and recognize the blessings of God.
3) Believe in the potential of others, take every opportunity to share a smile, speak with optimism and compliments.(BR /)4) Don't mix money and friends. Service is the name of the game.
5) Believe in God. Serve Him. Go to church.
I am seeking a girl who has Christ and His Gospel at her core, exemplified in her daily activities and treatment of others. A girl who has family (and rearing one in traditional ways) at her core. A girl who is an optimist against all odds. A girl who enjoys talking about anything. A girl who enjoys the impromptu. A girl with world experience, will go a long ways to understanding me, and is desirous of future travel.
