This work-hard, play-hard extrovert and former college baseball star doesn’t take a day for granted: A sports injury at 15 landed him on an operating table for lifesaving brain surgery. “I got a second chance,” he says. “It keeps me busy and determined.” That means waking up around 5:30 each morning and making the most of it—whether he’s volunteering for the inner-city Catholic schools charity Big Shoulders Fund or grabbing drinks with friends at Hub 51.

In the market for: An athletic nonsmoker sans ex or kids who is as interested in other people as he is. It helps if she also gets laughs: “I want people to say, ‘Man, your girl is funny.’ ”

Conversation starter: Bowling. His parents owned lanes in Colorado.
