Profession: President, Buckeye Telecom Inc.

Biggest accomplishment: Starting my company in 2003. I'm from a family that owned a steel company my father started, so I wanted to do exactly the same thing he did.

When I'm not working, I'm … either hanging with my friends or relaxing with my dogs.

Your perfect mate, in five words or less: Trustworthy, ambitious, quick-witted, happy, content

Deal breaker: I am looking for somebody who believes in God.

No. 1 dating rule? I'm old school, and I've just been raised that the man always pays. I still pay for my mother.

Most people don't know … my passion for animal welfare.

Dream superpower: It kind of sounds weird, but I'd love to be able to save all homeless pets.

On your bucket list: To go to Scotland and play golf at St. Andrews. And I want to take a private jet there with my best friend.

Most romantic thing you've ever done? I rented a helicopter in Vegas, and we went to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and had dinner.

I own too many … suits.

My guilty pleasure is … I like going out to eat, a lot.

If you were stranded on a desert island and you could bring one …?Book? The Bible Food?Probably beef jerky. I'm a big beef jerky fan. Movie?"Wall Street" Album? Anything by The Rolling Stones App? Twitter
