general manager at crocker park
The perfect date: The person is more important than the date itself. I like to laugh, drink, eat and try new things.
Something most people don't know about me: I have a Harley. Growing up, my father rode Harleys all over the United States, and I always wanted to have one too. This summer, for the first time, my dad and I rode together.
My passion: To make the most of every day, to help others and to be successful.
My favorite ... sports team: I have a few. Michigan — Go Blue! The Patriots. The Indians. I'm trying to like the Cavs, but they're very disappointing. ... musician/band: I like '80s music. Journey's been one of favorites since high school. ... TV show: I don't watch much TV. I'd rather be doing something else. ... place in Cleveland: Crocker Park, of course. ... book: I have a favorite author: Danielle Steel. When I'm looking to de-stress and not think about anything, her books are perfect for some mindless reading. ... vacation destination: Anywhere with water. ... way to exercise: My girlfriend Leslie and I do the Nike training app on our iPhones. I like yoga, too. It's like a meditation as well as a workout. It's a good way of de-stressing after a long day of work — and I feel it in my muscles afterward. ... month: July. I like the weather. ...website: Facebook. ... drink: It's a toss up between a good glass of red wine and a cosmo.
My usual hangout: In the summertime I hang out in Catawba. My family has a place out there, and I have a boat and WaveRunner that I keep there.
In high school I was ... friends with everyone.
And now I'm ... still friends with everyone. I'm probably more outgoing, professional and driven than I was in high school.
My No. 1 dating rule: Laugh together and have fun.
My deal-breaker: Someone who's untrustworthy or dishonest.
On a first date I never ... go to my place or theirs.

My hidden talent: I like to make people smile and feel comfortable. And I'm good at it.

My best feature: My hair. People think redheads are intriguing. There are not very many of us in the world.
My bad habit: I tend to talk too fast.
My first kiss: Surprising.
My guilty pleasure: Shopping. With my job, it's easier than it needs to be.
How my ex would describe me: Ambitious and driven to succeed.
How my best friend would describe me: Confident and courageous.

Early, late or right on time: Early or right on time.
Morning person or night owl: I can be either.
Dogs or cats: Dogs. I've had both, but I think you can have a better bond with a dog.

Why do you think you are single? I have been busy getting to know my new position and with life in general, but I am ready to take the time to get out there and meet the right person.
