A little about me...
I'm a nice guy, looking for the the same kind of woman.
I'm curious, by nature. Enjoy meeting new people, and like trying most new experiences.
I'm not into personal drama, or game playing. I've always appreciated a quick wit. Been told I have a dry sense of humor. 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, and illustration. 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, when I retire, I'll be able 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/packaging design side of the business, along with some sales . Our company designs and manufactures custom printed products for a variety of customers. 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, if I should 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, but hopefully, your not spoiled. You like holding hands, and if the moment was right, you wouldn't object to a good night kiss. And, once we get to know each other... We will just have to see!
If you would like me to respond, please, at least, have a semi-current photo that lets the viewer (ME) see what you really look like. Yes, I know, looks are only superficial, but I think our photos, and profiles are probably a reasonable starting point?
If this sounds remotely interesting to you, then maybe we should get together and see if our personalities will compliment each others.
If we don't get the opportunity to meet, thank you for taking your time to look at my profile and pics.
I'd 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...
Here's a few of my other Interests: I enjoy classic cars & trucks and like to participate in a couple of local car shows, during the summer. I also enjoy home improvement, financial investing, a good book, Day trips: planned or spur of the moment, week-end getaways, walks along the water front, street fairs and maybe a garage sale or two (never know what you might find). And I always enjoy a great sunset from the deck at Arnie's or Anthony's in Edmonds, and sunny weather almost anywhere! Even though I enjoy all of the above, it's far more fun when someone is sharing these experiences with you. What can I say, I appreciate good company!
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'. I enjoy most sports, but would not allow them to interrupt our enjoying each other’s good company.
Have a question? Just ask. I'll give you an honest answer. If your question is more personal than I'm comfortable answering, I'll probably tell you we 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.
