A little about me...
I think my friends would say that I'm a special friend, focused on my interests but interested in others and seeing them be successful and happy. I like honesty, communication, inquisitiveness, a healthy lifestyle, compassion and passion, laughter, challenges and competition, travel, big motor coaches, historical sites, mountains, beaches and forests! I'm retired but energy to continue to explore new opportunities.
I'm a Mid-Western guy that grew up in a solid, motivated and highly educated family as the oldest of three who had the good fortune to be taught that "a job worth doing is worth doing right"! Other than my school work, sports was my thing! Excelled at baseball and basketball, but golf became my passion and I earned a golf scholarship to OSU, finished there and qualified for the PGA Tour in 1975. Business was also an interest, so along with playing 20 odd years on Tour and then another 10 or so on the Champions Tour, I managed to found and build several small businesses here in Scottsdale in the golf area, taking one public with an IPO in '93. I like people, but enjoy privacy. I don't like people who take advantage of others or talk all the time. I like those who the more time you spend with, the more you like:)
About the one I'm looking for...
Communication, trustworthiness, a good listener, playful, thoughtful, independent, healthy lifestyle, inquisitive, spunky and passionate, integrity, compassion for others and a great friend are all important qualities. Supportive and interested in exploring new things and places.
I'd just like to add...
We only go around once in life, but if we do it right, once is enough!! Today is the first day of the rest of your life! Don't sweat the small stuff, because it's all small stuff!!
