Letting my subscription expire to take a break...ciao and best wishes. I recently moved to NW Arkansas from NC, due to recently accepting a senior position in international real estate with a global retailer. It has been a great fit, since I love to travel. Since my father was an officer in the Air Force, I have lived all over the US, but graduated from HS in Texas, attended BYU and the University of Texas Law School.
My mission was served in the Italy North Mission ( Padua, Torino, Brescia, Genova and Bologna) and love Italian food ( both savoring it and preparing it)! I am planning to go to the Rome, Italy temple dedication upon its completion.
Although an attorney, I now have executive responsibilities over real estate acquisition and development all over the world. Charitable causes (personal and institutional), traveling, working on a book, dabbling into some politics are my best pastimes right now.
I enjoy many different activities from running and working out, hiking, playing with grand-kids, scuba diving, cooking, fishing a nice trout stream, working with my horse ( an Arabian), foreign travel, reading mystery novels to attending the theater on Broadway in NY.... and always up for something new. I have an extensive "bucket list" of places to visit and explore and things to yet accomplish and would love doing so with the right person.
The Gospel is of paramount importance in my life and I strive to do my best at applying its principles to all aspects of my life...particularly in business dealings, church callings and service to others...but must admit that I still have lots of room to improve and many things to learn.
Important to me is being both learned and ever learning, the possession of a compassionate heart that motivates hands to help and lift others, an understanding of the value of apology and forgiveness, and faithful adherence to values, commitments and covenants, though we all seem to fall a bit short from time to time).
I may be best suited to someone who has a vibrant testimony of the Gospel, enjoys life and always up for something new (whether attending Broadway, hiking the wilderness, basking on a tropical beach or traveling the globe), is financially stable, loves family, has generally more conservative leanings (but eager to hear other views), is captivated by nature's grandeur, is playful and humorous, cherishes time together ( but also values time for oneself) and enjoys good health and the gym, running trails and the water.
