God is love and I'm currently experiencing a life of expanding abundance as felt and displayed through my physical, mental and spiritual beings because of Him. I'm semi-retired and luv'n it and although the social system says I've reached that milestone age, everything else about me says that I've only just begun. My life is continuing to evolve and fulfill what God wants me to be and do as my goals and objectives are being refined and realized daily. I have learned that financial wealth is only a bi- product of the ongoing increase of mind, body and soul. He has taught me to be creative rather than to be competitive.
I married late in life and it was short, however, I have successfully recovered as a divorcee. I am the proud father of 4 awesome grown daughters and wonderful grandchildren. I'm a retired Mechanical Engineer Program Manager and Product Designer with an entrepreneur mindset and currently in my intermittent 10th year as a substitute teacher, grades k-12. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and a master’s degree in Administration of Vocational and Technical Education and currently developing my own entrepreneurial business as an Engineering and Education Consultant. I'm also affiliated with the Institute for Healing Racism-Muskegon and host the organizations local cable TV program - "A Conversation On Race".
I'm a "Nupe" and also committed to my stable Christian religion and active with my church and community. I’ve had the pleasure of growing up as a long time AME then later being lead to The Church Of The Living God and then further spiritual growth as a Baptist and now back home as a Methodist. I believe in the oneness of mankind and all of the earthly resources created by him. I am loving, daily grateful and always in an attitude of gratitude. I'm also an ole school athlete working on staying in good physical, mental and emotional condition. I enjoy public speaking, modeling, acting, singing and playing my blessed nickel-black finished tenor saxophone. I love classic cars and auto shows and visiting auto junk yards for recreation and car part searches.
And finally, God sent me back home from down south to up south to live with my 86 year old mom and 90-year-old dad in January of 2007. Even though mom has now gone on to be with the Lord as of January 2008 and Dad joining her in May 2010, I continue to count my blessings as I fulfill plans to remodel our family’s home for the total enjoyment of myself, daughters and grand-kids for those priceless and treasured family get-to-gathers, reunions, holidays and babysitting opportunities.
I'm looking for Ms. Compatibility, an attractive lady and friend who believes in win-win and has the respect of both children and older adults.

She shares with confidence the things she values and holds dear and does not feel the need to compete with her mate, but rather to be a compliment to him; (spa)n style="font-weight:b old;")to be his help mate.
