The perfect date: My perfect date would probably be doing something active — get outside and just running around depending on the season. Maybe snowboarding in the winter, maybe going for a bike ride in the summertime.

Something most people don’t know about me: I was a drama minor in college.

My cell phone: Is filled with too many numbers.

Biggest turn-on: Intelligence and class, wrapped in a proportioned physical package

Biggest turnoff: A woman who can’t laugh at herself

I own too many: Promotional T-shirts

My favorite … place in Cleveland: Probably my mom’s kitchen table. My mom’s a great cook. … sports team: Cleveland Cavaliers, and I’m not the bandwagon kind. I’ve been a Cavs fan since I was 8 years old. … book: From Good to Great by Jim Collins … vacation destination: Definitely Los Angeles … dessert: Probably cheesecake. I just really like cheesecake in all of its forms. … blog: wavesatnight.com, a music blog.

Facebook: yes or no? For my job, I have to stay connected via social media, and even really in my personal life, you know, it’s good to keep in touch.

My usual hangout: At Liquid. Even before I worked there, that’s where I pretty much used to spend all my time.

In high school I was… a clique-buster. I’m a real affable kind of guy, and I was always friends with every crew. I played sports, student government, I hosted the morning announcements on TV. I would just make friends with everybody.

My passion: Seeking knowledge. Always trying to do good by people because it always comes back to you

My best feature: My ability to make people feel comfortable

My bad habit: Sometimes I’m a little stubborn. Sometimes I get overly passionate, and people mistake it for being overly angry. Everything I do is about passion.

My first kiss: I don’t remember, but I know it happened when I was, like, 7.

My guilty pleasure: Probably consuming too much Taco Bell

How my ex would describe me: Passionate, fun loving, ambitious

Blondes or brunettes: Brunettes. Blondes have had there time in the sun; it’s time for somebody else to be that stereotype.

Going out or staying in: Definitely going out

Early, late, or right on time: Right on time because the time when I’m supposed to be there, that’s what time I get there.

Dogs or cats: I would have to say no to both.

My longest relationship: A year and a half

Beer, wine or martinis: Wine, because I just can’t drink straight liquor

Roses or chocolates: Chocolates

My No. 1 dating rule: Always be honest.

My deal-breaker: Closed-mindedness

I hate when a date orders: I really don’t hate when a date orders anything.

Worst pickup line: “Are you tired? Because you’ve been running through my mind all day.”

If I could marry anyone: Halle Berry. She’s pretty hot.

On a first date I never ... wear a white shirt.

Best place to meet someone: Wherever you meet somebody is the best place to meet them.

Most unusual place I’ve met someone: I don’t think I really have one. I’ve never met someone at a funeral or something crazy like that.

My take on Cleveland’s single scene: I think that too much power rests with men. I mean, I know it’s the Midwest, and we have very conservative dating value, but it’s time for women to step up to the plate. If you have a good job and you’re a confident assertive woman, don’t be afraid to take charge from time to time.
