My self-summary
I think spontaneity and flexibility are the key to happiness. Appreciating the small and simple things in life such as hanging out by the ocean, or a good conversation, or experiencing something for the first time, is key for my overall serenity.

I was born in Africa but moved to L.A. when I was young so I am a Cali boy at heart. I have been fortunate to have been able to live in some cool places over the years (New York, Hong Kong, Berkeley, Colombo). I truly love seeing and experiencing new things.

My friends have described me as adventurous, knowledgeable, well traveled, optimistic, open-minded, easy-going, funny, goal oriented, and a great friend.

I guess I am looking for someone who shares some of these similiar qualities.

*I gotta be honest for a minute - for any future writers to me out there :-) I think my personality doesn't translate very well by email or text to someone who doesn't know me. Not sure why, but I assure you I am much better in person ;-)
What I’m doing with my life
I am a manager at a bookstore in Calabasas and am truly in my element. The constant interaction with people and the moving around the store work perfectly with my personality. That said, I just started my own online bookstore. We'll see where it takes me. Having a lot of fun doing it though...

I also enjoy working out (gym, running, swimming, hiking) and have recently started to take these MMA classes which really kick your ass. Great stuff.
I’m really good at
Being in the moment, yet keeping my eye on the bigger picture.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I totally run the gamut when it comes to books. I read whatever appeals to me (one of the benefits of working in a bookstore). I am currently reading Mitch Albom's newest one, The First Phone Call From Heaven. Lately, I have been putting down the books though to read the Wall Street Journal which I just subscribed to. I used to be a financial advisor in another life and still enjoy the stock market and want to get up to speed on business/world trends. I'm old school, I really do love a good newspaper

One of my all-time favorite books is Dice Man by Luke Rhinehart.

For movies (and tv), my taste seems to veer to ones that are set in the real world. I like comedies, dramas, and action mostly. A few that I like are Shawshank Redemption, L.A. Story, Big Fish, and Braveheart (and from my childhood I gotta mention Stand By Me).

For music my taste is all over the place. If I hear something good I'll listen to it. Some bands that I like: The Roots, Pennywise, Norah Jones, Josh Ritter, Metallica, Adele, Johnny Cash.

For food, My favorite is sushi and, I have to admit, my mom's schnitzel. There is great food in every culture though.
The six things I could never do without
Have to put the family and friends first.

Travel

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Keeping my mind where my feet are, but also looking ahead.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with some friends having dinner. If it was a rough week, just relaxing at home catching up on tv.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
A guilty pleasure of mine is watching those surprise soldier reunion videos sometimes on Youtube.
