Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
About me......
Playfully sarcastic and love to laugh,
Honest and sincere,
Intelligent and confident,
Passionate and romantic,
Creative and artistic,
A bit geeky,
An artist,
Complex, yet the right woman can figure me out.
I am driven to exploring and learning new things.
I love to travel and explore new places.
I appreciate long intelligent conversations.
I believe the best things in life are free.
I value the little things in life the most.
I recognize everything is connected.
Whatever we do affects all around us.

The simplest things tend to make me the happiest; life itself, my son, love, faith, doing something selfless, the feeling of the sun on my face, riding in my Jeep top down-doors off and the wind rushing over me, a passionate kiss, the feeling of knowing you are loved, the wonderment that comes from exploring and learning new things, sunsets and sunrises, the joys of feeling young, the wisdom that comes from growing old.....


It seems as if everyone on this site likes watching sunsets on the beach. I don't know anyone who would say they "HATE" sunsets on the beach. Is this a cliche'? A trend? Maybe it is just something to say.

For me, I would rather sit on my surfboard a few hundred yards offshore in the darkest hours before dawn and watch the sun rise. If I could only find the right woman who would join me in the dark still water waiting for the first warmth of the sun to light our faces.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
First and foremost I am a father raising my 10 year old son. Being a father is truly the greatest gift I have received. I have never known a greater happiness nor a feeling of completeness other than being a father to my son.

I have always needed to be on or near the water. I am a lifelong surfer, sailor, and aqua-phile. I spend a lot of time surfing, swimming, and boating. I feel very connected to the water.

My professional life has included several major changes. I was a Criminal Investigator for my first career of 16 years. Now I design, create, and build websites.

I also have an obsession with renewable energy efficient housing and living. I am a proponent of inexpensive modular housing using eco-materials and are energy efficient. Hopefully someday I can turn this into a reality.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening, caring, loving, laughing, joking and being sarcastic, communicating and expressing myself, being romantic, being passionate, kissing, giving massages, learning new things, cooking, painting, drawing, , being "handy" around the house, fixing and building Jeeps, repairing and building pre-1984 Harley-Davidson, all British and Italian motorcycles, playing with my 10 year old son, being a father, being a son to my mother, being a true friend, living life to its fullest, being patient and waiting for the right moment (timing can be everything). I love true art, designing and building "modern" period furniture, electronics and making my own electronic instruments and professional recording gear. I also write, play, and music. I have a professional recording studio.

They should have a section for "I'm really bad at..."
I am terrible at quite a few things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My attitude about life, my confidence and my sense of humor. After people know me a little they see that I am a VERY PASSIONATE person in general.

Physically, people notice my eyes or my smile and dimples.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.

Let me say music is a huge part of me and my life. I am a musician. I also have a professional recording studio. I listen to, play and record music. I also have done a fair share of DJing in my life. I will listen to anything. It is the only love I have never lost or left.

I don't expect a partner to love music as I do. I would love to hear your musical tastes.

I am constantly changing what I listen to depending on my mood and my tastes at the moment. I like all kinds of music.

I have a HUGE vinyl record and CD collection and rarely listen to the radio. Some of the stuff I return to lately are: Joy Division, New Order, older punk and new wave, The Church, The Pineapple Thief, Chicane, Interpol, Slowdive, Engineers, The Meeting Places, Felt, Lifehouse, Very Early Tangerine Dream, Early Pink Floyd, Tom Middleton, Jimmy Van M, John Digweed, Camera Obscura, Luna-Dean Wareham, BT, Underworld, The Pogues, Foo Fighters, Arcade FireThe Cure, the Killers, Fleet Foxes, David Bowie, Sigur Ros, Ron Pope, Capital Cities, The Notwist, The Xx, Mogwai, M83, The National, Iggy Pop, David Bowie, MGMT, New Division, Exxplosions in the Sky, Washed Out, Cut Copy, Sigur Ros, Love Robot, Badly Drawn Boy, Bon Iver, Snow Patrol, The Avett Brothers, Johnny Cash, Pasty Cline, Waylon Jennings, Jay-Z, 1980's and 90's alternative, THIS LIST GOES ON FOREVER. I also love early Jazz- Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Cal Tjader, most Jazz from about 1957 to 1965 (the Blue Note and Verve years), again there so many to list...

I have a one room library in my home which includes many nonfiction works including- Steinbeck, Marquaz, Dickens, Kubrick, Tolkien, Hemmingway. and many many Poets.

Most books I own are non-fiction or about philosophy-both Western and Eastern. I am an information junkie. When I am interested in a subject I am unyielding in learning as much as I can about it. So I have many non-fiction books on everything from architecture to design to furniture history and construction to tattoos to motorcycles to race car design (LMP, GTR, F1) to artists like Edward Hopper, Eric Fischl, Richard Estes, John Register, etc.......

TV: I really don't watch much TV. I do appreciate Discovery, History, etc.

The older films I love are too many to list; ie.The Black Rose, The Sweet Smell of Success, and so many more.....many of them Film Noir. Some actors I enjoy that are pre-1970: Cary Grant, Spencer Tracy, Bogey, Orson Welles, Ava Gardner, Lana Turner, Rita Hayworth, Marlene Dietrich, and too many others to list. Some later movies I like are The Omen (1976), The Graduate, Easy Rider, Clint Eastwood Westerns, Planet of the Apes, The Godfather, Rosemary's Baby, Midnight Cowboy and of course Star Wars.

As far as more recent films (after 1980 or so): Valley Girl, John Hughes' teen movies (Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Weird Science, Some Kind of Wonderful, Ferris Bueller's Day Off), SE Hinton Films, Boondock Saints, Neo Ned, Slumdog Millionaire, Control, Brother, Donnie Darko, Guy Ritchie Films (RockNRolla, Layer Cake, etc.), Scott Pilgrim VS. The World, James Bond films, Quentin Tarantino movies (Pulp Fiction Kill Bill, Hero, Inglorious Bastards, etc.), Beautiful Girls, Penelope, Garden State, Michael Mann films (Heat, Miami Vice, Collateral, Thief, etc.), David Mamet films and sooooo many more.

I like my food to have lots of flavor and be fresh. I hate "chain" restaurants and love hole in the wall, obscure little restaurants. I prefer vegan food where everything is fresh and living.

People may not believe me but you can make very good vegan dishes in the exotic styles of Puerto Rican food (not Cuban-there is a BIG difference), ALTHOUGH- I also love Cuban food, most Latin/Caribbean food, Indian (I live on CHAI!!!!!), Real Italian, Real Mexican, Thai is my favorite if done right, just about anything as long as its vegan, light, fresh and not over-processed nor over-cooked, AND has strong, colorful flavors.

I do my best to consume fresh organic non-processed foods. I grow a large mount of my own food- vegetables and herbs mainly. Although I do not eat meat, I refuse to eat tofu. I cook this way for myself and my son. I love to cook from scratch because I control what goes into what I eat.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My son, he is like a little me
2. LOVE- The people I love and the people who love me
3. My Happiness and the sanity and peace that comes with it.
4. Water- ocean, lake, stream.....
5. My Music and my ability to express myself
6. My Jeep and the freedom it gives me
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think a lot. I am focused but I still forever ponder the obvious to the unimaginable.

The recurring ideas which occupy my mind deal with life and love.

"Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation."
Kahlil Gibran
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It depends on my week and on my mood.

Playing or recording music, drawing or painting, spending time with friends and/or my son, relaxing, working, I love to have fun whether it means seeing movies, seeing concerts, going out, or just staying home with someone I care about.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have been told by women (family, friends and partners) that I am unique and unlike other men in many ways. I see this as a blessing and a burden. While some women may appreciate and value my uniqueness, some women want just a regular guy.

I have a very difficult time starting friendships or relationships when a new person in my life has lied, misrepresented or not been completely honest with me. All relationships are built on respect. One does not deceive someone she/he respects.
