Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello. I am proud to be from the bay area. Born in Oakland. I also
lived in Berkeley, San Diego and Hawaii. Former surfer, brown hair,
green eye, darker complexion, athletic build, and my heritage is
Spanish/German. Positive, happy most of the time, intelligent,
trustworthy, and thinks hes funny. I have character, and I give
more than I take.
I wear an eye patch. It gives me a unique look, is a great
conversation piece, and makes dressing up as a pirate a lot easier.
I was in a terrible surfing accident years ago in Hawaii. After
having to re-learn how to walk, eat and write, I find that I dont
take a lot for granted. I am well now and lucky to be here. The
whole experience taught me the true meaning of being present and
authentic. However, im far from being as awesome as I want to be. I
know exactly what my faults are and im working on them.
I want to continue to travel, local and abroad. In fact, im going
to the kitchen momentarily. I have a great appreciation for the
earth and people we share it with. I do believe that life
experiences are greatly enhanced with someone to share them with. I
have some basic philosophies that revolve around love, goodness,
and positivity. Im not too much of this, nor too little of that. I
read all my fortune cookies and take them to heart. In bed.
I am euphemistic, cogent, and just so
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now im looking for my car keys. Reevaluating whats truly
important. Helping others to live a healthier lifestyle. Im very
"in the moment" currently. I can expand on this greatly, but it has
to do with almost dying myself and an ex being randomly murdered at
the peak of her life. Also, watch this. Youll be glad you
. I am probably not going
to have kids, but I so enjoy babysitting my friends kids and being
'uncle shane' to my niece and nephews.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
2. Being playful.
3. Attempting to see the bright side of bad situations
4. Not lying
5. Training others on the side (CPT), sometimes, and just for fun.
Im passionate about wellness. I also do sports massage and PNF for
those who ask nicely.
6. Being open to new ideas and reconsidering old ones.
7. I'm not going to be cliché and say sex. That's subjective and is
dependent on chemistry. What's good for the goose may not be good
for the gander. I am however, a sensual man.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It depends...naked or clothed? Either way, my eye-patch, and that I
have some slight nerve damage on the right side of my face. People
either think im a die-hard Raider fan or god forbid im standing in
the vicinity of anything nautical, im sure you can guess the rest.
I'm in great shape and tan because I love the sun. And I should
mention, the pretty men at the coffee shop think im REALLY
handsome. So, there's that.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- resistance training. moving my body.
- the sun. figuratively and literally.
- coffee and water, for drinking and bathing...respectively or vice
verse. I could live without the coffee, but I'd rather not.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
school stuff, nutrition/food, my next beautiful romance, how pretty
people are in motion, world affairs, summertime, self-improvement,
self-identity, how to stay happy, healthy and positive, sex and
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...thinking that tomorrow is Saturday. However, on a typical
Tuesday night its a whole different story.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Clearly, most people misunderstand this question. The MOST private
thing I'm willing to admit is:
2. Sometimes I wish I did things differently in life, but I try not
to have regrets. I've realized that its not what happens to you,
rather what you do about what happens, that really matters. I dont
like 'victim behavior'
3. Im GGG

know right, I'm a total daredevil).
6. I cried when I saw 'Fault in the Stars'.
7. I like the word 'moist'.
14. When I'm really hungry, I'm a little bitch until I eat.
8. I once was a proud writer of a musical vignette based on the
ending scene of the famous short story, "Where are you going, where
have you been?" by Joyce Carol Oates.
10. I've loved and been loved. I want that again, but I have no
rules on what that should look like or how that should be.
11. Did I mention the thing about sushi-tacos? (not like that,
^ I feel so vulnerable and exposed now.
