Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am of African American and Puerto Rican decent. From Long Island,
New York and grew up in a very poor neighborhood. Luckily, I was
blessed with very wise parents who made many sacrifices to send me
to private school. I excelled in a regimented, highly disciplined
environment and received a scholarship for my undergrad at Penn
I studied biology and planned to attend medical school, just like
my mother. Yet, that was not God's plan to finish in Happy Valley.
(Nor mine, after I developed a taste for cheap booze and a distaste
for 8am classes XD) So I came home, and finished my undergrad.
First at Nassau community college and then at SUNY Old
This time the finances were upon my shoulders, so I served tables
to maintain my goal. But the new found love of fast cash outweighed
the desire to focus 100% of my attention on achieving my degree.
Coupled with arrogance, derived from a false belief that, being of
color, cute, and the son of an alumni would guarantee a seat in
medical school.. (Apparently it doesn't work like that...
Fused together to create a blockade in path to greatness.
So after reassessing my position in society. I enlisted in the
Navy, and am back on the road to success. ;)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Spending the next 3 years in Oceania Virginia and preparing my
officer's package! So in the my free-time, I'm at gym, gaming,(FIFA
and CoD mostly), yoga class, following my favorite sports teams;
Yankees, Giants, Rangers, Chelsea FC, and The Cavs (Huuuge Le'bron
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Everything.. No seriously, everything.. Except spelling... Spelling
and I do not agree on many occasions.. XD
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite books- The Secret, anything Mitch Albom, and most fantasy
reads, ei. Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, LoTR.
Movies- Slapstick and black comedies are my forte. I also love
history documentaries. I'm not an action flick kinda guy.. I like
em, but I will not go running to see The Expendable's or something
along those lines. Oh! And I don't do horror flicks. Call me a
wuss.. I don't care. :-P
TV shows- Top Chef, Family Guy, Friends Walking Dead, Big Bang
Theory and ESPN.
Music- Any and all genres. Completely depends on my mood. But I do
love 90's hip hop, 80's rock, 70's funk.. I even play the alto
saxophone so anything preformed by an orchestra has a special place
in my heart.
Food- Dry aged steaks, especially a heavily charred ribsteak cooked
medium, sautéed mushrooms, stone crab claws with the mustard sauce,
beefsteak tomatoes, hamachi sashimi, cheese.. I can spend hours in
the cheese section at whole foods.
Wine- how can you not mention wine when discussing food?? :) I'm a
California red whore, I love my cabs from Napa valley and Sonoma
county, and am a huge fan of Amarone. I also enjoy all whites,
especially on a hot summer day, exept white zinfandel. I will
ridicule you relentlessly, if you drink that stuff by the way. :)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Something apple.. My iPad/iPhone/itouch, loaded with apps and
Wikipedia, I am a man of facts and logic. :)
A memory foam pillow.
A nice pair of running sneakers.
A gaming console with wifi. XD
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I want out of life, and how to achieve it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Gym, eat and then preparing for wherever the wind takes me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've taken like 15 salsa lessons and still suck. XD
