The one thing that I am most passionate about is being a Dad. Seeing my 5 kids grow into good people that I admire and being the one to teach them about the world around them, morals and values. Not just setting the boundaries, but explaining to them why they are there. I love going on adventures with them, Spending time with them and my favorite, loving them. I am a great Dad and I have great kids.
The most important thing I am looking for in a person is an intimate best friend, a confidant, a partner, someone who won’t quit when things get tough. I would like someone who has solid family values and strong family ties, a woman of faith, with enough love and compassion to take an imperfect man like me as well as love my 5 wonderful children. I am looking for the woman who prefers to be treated with love, respect and tenderness. Not one who tend to be attracted to jerks and feeds off of drama.
The most influential person in my life has been my good friend, home teacher and spiritual leader. He has been a guide for me, helping me to know who I want to be and how to become the man and father that I am. He has challenged me to keep moving forward and has been a great support to me and my family.
The first thing people notice about me is my spirit. I smile a lot and try to make personal, hart felt connections with the people around me. I genuinely care about those who I come in contact with and do my best to get to know them. I am a man of faith and it shows.
3 of my best life skills are:
Providing for my family
Finding simple pleasures
Seeking new adventure
I truly enjoy playing Frisbee Golf. It is so much fun and low impact. 18 holes just like golf, only with disks and anyone can do it. I also like to go Geo-caching which is treasure hunting with GPS. It's very cool and their millions of caches around the world. I go with my kids whenever it's warm out. We call it going on a "Bear Hunt". I got that from one of our favorite books. We often go fishing, camping, go cart racing and flying. There are a lot of other things that I'd like to do and will do in the future as I get some more free time. I'm always looking for a new adventure.
Things I can't live without:
I don't do things for recognition outside of work. I do it because it is right and it makes me feel good about myself. I like who I am and you get what you see.
I love getting out and going on all kinds of adventures large and small. Fishing, hiking, camping, geo-caching, flying, Frisbee golf, horseback riding, go cart racing, movies, the occasional dinner out, traveling, beaches, story time and being silly with my kid's. I am a Military brat, father Air Force, brother Navy, brother Marines and a veteran myself, former Army of the 101st Airborne. I also served as a contractor in Iraq for a year. I am grateful for my trials. They have made me a better, stronger and much more humble man. I strive to be wise, patient, thoughtful, kind and compassionate. I live and love fiercely.
