My self-summary
I'm a half-Mexican/half-Jewish traveler, adventurer, musician, singer, romantic, learner, doer, but probably most of all - a dancer. That might seem strange if you met me during my day job, where I'm a consultant assisting US companies to invest in developing markets - about as DC as it gets!

But while I love the analytic challenges of my day job (and am grateful that it helps fund the rest of my life - especially my desire to take long trips to the other side of the world), I'm most at home on a dance floor.

I'm primarily a social dancer (i.e. salsa/swing//bachata/etc.), though my first love is the argentine tango - I spent 3 months in Buenos Aires a few years back doing nothing almost nothing but learning Spanish and dancing tango. While I mostly dance for fun, I have started to dip my toes in the water of competition. Haven't won one yet, but I'm getting close!

One of my teachers once told me that "you should dance the tango as if the person you're dancing with is the person you love more than anyone else in the world - and after this dance you will never see them again." When you have a good partner, a strong connection, and let the music dissolve two people into one, there's really no other feeling like it.

On that note, I connect best with women who are comfortable with expressing themselves, moving their bodies, are rhythmic - important qualities for a partner on the dance floor - as well as off it. Touch is the most important sense to me. If you are touch-averse, we wouldn't work. If you're the kind of person who loves giving and receiving massages, who never feels more at peace than when wrapped in a strong embrace, who craves spooning before falling asleep, who loves the slowly increasing intensity of long foreplay, then...wait, what was I talking about? I got distracted.
What I’m doing with my life
Things I have been: Godzilla; kindergarten teacher; community service day organizer; dance dance revolution champion; economist; math tutor.

Now-daytime: I moved to DC for grad school after spending a year living in Italy, and afterwards joined a mysterious private-sector intelligence firm. My family is convinced I'm working for one or more of the Masons, Illuminati, and/or Stonecutters.

In the evenings, learning every social dance out there! A week for me might look like - Monday night, salsa, Tuesday night - swing, Wednesday night Zouk, Thursday night tango, weekend - is there a dance festival in town? Or out of town - I'm about to go to New York for a salsa festival.

I'm also recently starting to look into fusion dancing - blending dance styles to non-traditional music. (think about blending a tango and bachata to an R&B song!). I daydream about being one half of the modern version of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers - so if you're a Neo-Rogers looking for your Neo-Astaire, let's talk!

I've also done various forms of martial arts (aikido/krav maga mostly) for most of my life - it's basically just like dancing, except instead of protecting your partner, you punch them.
I’m really good at
Seducing 55 year old Real Housewives of NYC in order to get them to donate to charity (only partially kidding about this one).

Traveling to places that have probably gotten me put on a couple watchlists (Cuba, Myanmar, etc.). I love visiting new places, spontaneous weekends away, getting off the beaten path. I've been to 15+ countries, 30+ states, speak (to varying degrees!) four languages - there's so much to see and so little time!

Guitar: In addition to the standard rock/pop that every weekend guitarist plays, I also play a bit of classical guitar and have been taking flamenco guitar lessons (so much fun!) for a few months now.

Cooking: My homemade guac beat up your honor student.
The first things people usually notice about me
Apparently that I am a tour guide (I'm not). I get asked for directions everywhere. I think it's the glasses.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
TV Shows: The Wire, Breaking Bad, Dexter, Game of Thrones, Arrested Development, Firefly

Reading: Where the Red Fern Grows (dog books get me), The Giver, Mountains Beyond Mountains, Atlantic Monthly, The Economist, Calvin and Hobbes

Movies: Gladiator, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Princess Bride, Up

Music: tango, salsa, bachata, classic rock, mo-town, zouk, swing, hip hop, blues, lyrical, opera, electronic, really the only question is can I dance to it
The six things I could never do without
Oxygen (aren't I original taking this literally!!??)

Sarcastic people
Empathetic people
Someone to listen to
Someone to joke with
A place to dance
My FAFAFAF (My F**king Awesome Friends and Family...and Fajitas)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why the world is how it is. Why people are as they are. How can we improve things. Wondering if am I earning my time here.

Also, we have sesame seeds, but what the heck is a sesame?
On a typical Friday night I am
Some recent Fridays: jazz bar, salsa dance, west coast swing dancing, milonga (tango), contra dance, National Theater, shabbat dinner (more social than religious for me), Disneyland, house party, watching a movie with some friends, cooking a big meal for a bunch of friends then playing Rock Band and Mario Kart on my old school, still functioning, Nintendo 64.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Not so private: I fully believe chivalry and romance are not dead. Learning tango I was taught "you are the frame. she is the painting." I am completely behind the feminist movement, but also believe that statement at a deep level. That said, I love intelligent, strong, independent women who can challenge me and push me - but if you'll get offended by me opening a door, or offering my jacket, or other such gestures, we won't work.

Rather private: I was extremely skinny for most of my life. Dance, especially my desire to work with aerials/lifts, has gotten me into shape recently (though I still want to get better!) - to the point that I was really tempted to do a bathroom selfie on here. Anyone who has ever struggled with body image will understand that desire (hey, we're proud!). But it still is tacky, so I didn't. Plus, on the one in a billion chance I ever run for office, might not be the best idea! But I did think about it...shhhhh!
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 23–32

You should message me if
You would kick some ass on the Amazing Race.

You want to go dancing with me!

You actually want to meet up. Ain't nobody got time for exchanging 50 messages only to find out you've got less chemistry than Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez in Gigli.
