Occupation: Co-owner, Mr. Gyros
Grew up in: Bellevue
Personal mission: Work hard now, play later. My goal is to hopefully be retired before 40. I figure if I work as hard as I can now, I can enjoy life with a family later.
Best quality: Physically, my eyes. I used to get called a girl when I was younger because my lashes were so long. Turns out girls like them these days. Nonphysical best quality? Probably my passion. From work to family, to playing soccer, I don’t believe in mediocre. I love making the best of every opportunity that comes my way.
People might be most surprised to learn: I’m very traditional and old-fashioned. And I don’t like cooked mushrooms.
Would spend a million dollars on: Travel, for sure! Hawaii, Bora Bora, the Bahamas, anywhere warm. I might also splurge on a Mercedes G-Wagon; I always loved that car.
Best way to spend a rainy day: Relaxing with some hookah, a nice meal and maybe a great movie
Single in Seattle. Love it? Hate it? Discuss: Mixed feelings. Seattle is the biggest “small town” I know. Everybody knows somebody who knows somebody.
Describe your ideal mate: Unselfish, funny, hard-working and athletic. I love to play soccer, and one of my dreams has been to play with the girl I’m dating.
Favorite place for first date: Wine bars are always nice. Black Bottle in Bellevue is one of my favorites.
Go-to first-date strategy: Learn a lot about her. Maybe a kiss on the cheek when I drop her off.
