I'm a photographer, therapist, and prospective entrepreneur who enjoys living in South Florida.
My personal views are by no means traditional, however I respect the beliefs of others and some of my closest friends have values that are diametrically opposed to mine.
I am both a realist and an optimist and though I am well aware life can be harsh at times I believe in making the best of the situation.
If you are seeking a chiseled Adonis to hang around you should probably move along, but if you like wit, fun, and a little mental deviousness then we will likely get along.
I am a firm believer in wellness and personally feel that skills such as meditation and basic stress reduction techniques should be taught from a relatively early age. I have recently established a health plan to get myself into better physical shape and go to the gym regularly.
I'm a guy that's up for spontaneous adventure such as an impromptu road trip. I like to have partners in adventure who not only can keep up but are also willing to take the initiative occasionally themselves.
As you may be able to tell by now...I don't exactly fit the status quo, and I'm perfectly fine with that. I consider myself a relatively intelligent wild child who has calmed down a bit as I matured but never let go of that spark that makes life interesting.
I'm always open to new experiences and meeting new people. There is so much that you can learn just by getting to know someone.
I am a true bibliophile, and love to read whenever I get a chance.
A few of the authors I enjoy are Robert A Heinlein, J R Tolkien, Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Chuck Palahniuk, J K Rowling, Laurell K Hamilton, Stephen King, Sun Tzu, Niccolò di Bernardo dei Machiavelli.
I'm always on the lookout for a new book. Though I enjoy reading on my kindle and ipad, neither of those beats the feel and smell of a paper bound book.
Movies & Theatre:
I enjoy a good movie from time to time, especially ones that make you think. My passion for live theatre almost equals that of books, and enjoy going to see performances whether they are professional or amateur especially when I have someone to go with who appreciates the stage as much as I do.
A few of my favorites include Moulin Rouge, Wicked, Phantom of the Opera, Chicago, My Fair Lady, Look Homeward Angel, RUR with reverse cast (performed when I was an undergrad at Berea College), Avenue Q, and The Book of Mormon.
My musical taste is rather eclectic and I listen to most everything from the chanting of Tibetan monks to hardcore rap. It really just depends on my mood.
I'm a foodie. I enjoy trying new dishes and exploring food from different cultures. I'm one of those guys who loves to cook and truly enjoys spending time in the kitchen.
