A little about me...
I'm a nice guy, looking for the the same kind of woman.
I'm curious, by nature. I enjoy meeting new people, and like trying new experiences.
I'm not into personal drama, or game playing. Been told I have a dry sense of humor. I've always appreciate a quick wit. I can be a good listener, but honestly, enjoy it most when the conversations are more of the two-sided variety.
I have an artistic side with a wide variety of interests. These include graphic design, furniture design, 3D printing, photography, illustration and drawing. I also enjoy dabbling in sculpting, and have carved since I was a kid. Years ago, at college, I attempted to learn water color painting, but found it challenging. I alway seemed to put too much paint on the paper. I think it takes that special touch. Hopefully someday, if I retire, I'll get a handle on it.
On the working side of my life, I'm one of the owners in a small corporation, involved primarily with the graphics and the packaging design side of the business, along with some sales . Our company designs and manufactures custom printed products for a variety of customers and clients. O.K., at least for now, that's probably enough about work. Ask more later, if you have an interest.
About the one I'm looking for...
I always enjoy the opportunity of meeting an intelligent woman, who thinks for herself, has a sense of humor and enjoys good conversation. Someone who is open to new ideas, places and experiences.
I hope it's acceptable, should I opened a door for you. And, when we go out for dinner, you won't mind if I help with your chair. I'm a little bit old-fashion, that way. You don't mind being pampered, at least just a little, but hopefully, your not spoiled. You like holding hands, and if the moment was right, you wouldn't object to a good night kiss. Once we get to know each other... We will just have to see!
If you would like me to respond, please have a current photo that lets the viewer (ME) see what you really look like. Yes, I know, looks are only superficial, but don't you think our photos and profiles are probably a reasonable starting point?
If any of this sounds remotely interesting, then maybe we should get together and see if our personalities will compliment each other.
If we don't get the opportunity to meet, thank you for taking your time to look at my profile.
I would like to wish you the very best of luck, and hope your search for a great relationship is rewarded.
I'd just like to add...
Other Interests: I enjoy classic cars and trucks and like to participate in a couple, local car shows in the summer. I also enjoy home improvement, financial investing, day trips: planned or just spur of the moment, week-end getaways, walks on the water front, and a good book. Always enjoy a beautiful sunset from the deck of one of our waterfront restaurants in Edmonds, sunny weather almost anywhere, and of course, with an interesting woman!
I'm a Hawk's, Dawg's and Mariner’s fan. I used to surf and ski (both types), but it's been a while. I've even been known to play, or watch a game of Texas Hold em', although, not sure it qualifies as a sport. I enjoy most sports, but would not allow them to compromise our enjoying each other’s good company.
I like local car shows, street fairs, or maybe a garage sale. Never know what you might find! Even though I enjoy all of the above, it's always more enjoyable when someone is sharing the experiences with you. What can I say, I appreciate good company!
If you have any questions, just ask. I'll give you an honest answer. If more personal than I'm comfortable answering, I'll probably tell you that we'll need to know each other a little better. Either way, it's a win/win. Right?

My Top Interests:
Crafts and Creating
I have always enjoyed the artistic endeavor, whether it be drawing, sculpting, photography, painting or various other types of artistic expression. I find it all fun!
I also have a bit of the inventor in me. And I'm completely intrigued with "3D printing", and the unlimited potential it will someday allow. (If you're not familiar, google it.)
Both my parents were artistic, in their own right. I guess, I just come by my interest, naturally.
Family and Friends
What can I say, my family, my friends and acquaintances are the most important parts of my life.
You can be away for years, from a family member or a friend, meet up with them, and with in seconds, it's just like it was, the last time you saw them. Virtually, like no time has passed! What a great feeling that is!
Nature and Outdoors
I've enjoyed "Mother Nature" for as long as I can remember.
From High Sierra back packing, Baja camping trips, to visiting Nat'l. parks.
I've always lived near the ocean, with one exception, and realized I how much I missed it, when living hundreds of miles away.
There's something about the ocean that gives me a very special kind of enjoyment. It's difficult to put it into the right words. It's just a great feeling.
Living three minutes from the Sound is counted as an ongoing blessing.
