I am a very respectful man. I pride myself on being a faithful & loyal husband, a loving father & an all around decent human being. I am helpful and courteous. I am a good friend to my lifetime friends & new acquaintances. Often, I have stopped to help a stranger in need to fix a tire, carry groceries, or do other random acts of kindness such as paying for someone’s order behind me in a drive-thru. I view myself as positive contribution to society & a great person to know. I am professional & entertaining & carry a reputation as someone who is always there if you need me. I am flawed. I make mistakes. More importantly, I try to learn from those mistakes & continuously make efforts to avoid or repeat them. I am loved by countless others for various reasons & take pride in my relationships & who I’ve become as a person.
