My self-summary
NYC, you must have a special plan for me. This will be the third time that I wash up on your shore. Moved back to NYC from San Francisco last summer with extended stays in Miami and Geneva over past 8yrs.

Spent 5 of my adult years studying/living/working abroad immersed in foreign cultures and tongues. Thrive in new environments. Described as a polyglot. Que te puedo decir, languages open doors to passageways of expression and precious life experiences. Can carry a conversation, in multiple languages, with just about anyone about anything.

Hybrid 🇮🇱🇦🇷🇺🇸

Feel grounded and whole when immersed in the natural world. Also consider myself a socially conscious man who is drawn to sustainable business and ways of life. Organic, natural, sustainable, healthy, green, recycle, renewable are all words and lifestyles that resonate with me.

If you have a good soul, big heart and a bit of wit, feel free to say hi!

P.S. I'm 42/ENFP/ 5'11" in case that's an issue.
What I’m doing with my life
I gravitate to where the magic happens. That sweet spot outside the comfort zone where you're pushing yourself in new ways and developing as a person.

Last summer I maximized time off from work by rafting/hiking in CO, catching last night of Fair Thee Well shows in Chicago, helping a best friend deliver a catamaran from Tortola -> Grenada over 16 days, getting my ASA 101 certification and taking a terrific week long cooking class through ICE downtown.

Also relished a good friends wedding in CT and rejoiced being best man at my little brothers wedding in Boston. Pure magic and so much love!

Very much enjoy volunteering when possible. Themes I try to get involved in are preserving our parks and green spaces, underpriviledged youth and education, elderly, dogs. If you aren't a part of NY Cares, definitely get involved. They offer a huge amount of opportunities to help in a wide variety of ways.

Dogs in pics are not my dogs. Was doing a bunch of dog sitting for friends over holidays. Very fun!
I’m really good at
Foreign languages, finding great adventures, making people laugh, being imperfect, getting lost, putting people at ease, playing with kids, listening and making people feel comfortable and appreciated, animated story telling. Enjoy bringing people together. Oh, and besitos!
The first things people usually notice about me
Sense of humor, smile, quirky, genuine, real, engaging, deep sense of curiosity, empathic, transparent, zest for life, adventurous spirit, love to love. Curb humor works for me. Hope you can appreciate.

Music: Love music! "When it hits, you feel no pain.". Huge live music lover and pretty good at seeking/finding gems coming through the city. Crave opportunities to shake my ass. Not ready to be on dancing with the stars but feel very comfortable on dance floor.

Have a wide, diverse and international range in music I absolutely love. Have an immense love affair with music and other creative forms of expression and arts.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to be a part of making the world a better place, what legacy do I want to leave, being a good friend, my next adventure, how things work and why.
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't have a Friday night formula but it often involves some of the staples such as food, drink, fun, music, relaxation.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I get a bizarre craving for Swedish Fish before boarding flights...

Once upon a time I taught archery in a vacation village in the south of Italy.

Passion is a hell of a turn on. Seeing a woman doing what she's passionate about, is about as sexy as it gets. This can be anything you put your mind towards or how you show up in the world.
You should message me if
You have a great relationship with your family. You are thoughtful, adventurous, kind, creative, passionate, introspective, and expressive. You have a genuine interest and openness to get to know each other and see how things unfold...

If you also speak a few languages, that's a huge plus and appreciated.
