About me: I am a well balanced person. A simple guy, but yet unconventional. Confident but not arrogant, strong yet gentle, fun but responsible, direct yet polite, truthful but diplomatic, fair but compassionate. Forward looking but learns from the past. I know a lot (about many subjects), but there is a lot to learn. I am a positive person, focusing on the good in people. My friends consider me a good listener and communicator, someone who is always there for them and gives great advice, open-minded, someone who enjoys life and laughter, and...that occasionally I'm even smart and funny . I'd like to find a wonderful woman who shares similar interests and values. I am active. Some of my activities include tennis, skiing, swimming, kayaking, biking, working out few times a week. I am always open to new things as well. I read quite a bit, mostly business, economics, politics, history, biography type books. Very rarely would I read fiction or novels, but occasionally go for classics. I sometimes do audio books while driving. One of my favorite books is Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell. Just finished "Because I Said So" by Ken Jennings, and "Price of Inequality" by Joseph Stieglitz, two great book. Right now just started reading David and Goliath.
