All About Me

I’m a proud papa–I have a daughter and son of my own, and am lucky to have a girlfriend with a daughter of her own. They are all wonderful young adults, and amaze me every day.

I am dating the most incredible woman on the planet–she’s beautiful, intelligent, and fierce, and is one of the most caring and supportive human beings I’ve ever met.

We recently (as of August 2017) moved to University Heights, and absolutely LOVE it. We’re minutes away from some of the hippest and most fun places in Cleveland and just 15 minutes from downtown, but it still has a great, friendly neighborhood vibe that makes us feel like we’re part of a really tight-knit community.

For fun, I play the guitar, piano, and sing. I’m also a recovering actor.

My girlfriend got me hooked on running a couple of years ago, and now I can’t imagine my life without it. I love running our neighborhood or one of the many beautiful parks in the area. I’m currently working towards a sub-2 hour half-marathon.

These are things I’m working on right now.

Email is a lost cause at this point–I reached email overload a long time ago, it’s a really inefficient way to work, and I just don’t like it. I’m on Facebook daily, Twitter not as regularly (though I’d like to learn how to use it better), and I’m really only on Instagram to see what my kids are up to. For anything else, feel free to connect, but I’m not really on there regularly.
