Early enough in life for it not to seem totally ridiculous, I made the decision to steadfastly "follow the happy" as a life goal. It has served me well, despite the arguably shameful number of times it has meant leaving a career on the cusp of financial success. As a result, my original idea of what "success" is has been altered - it only gets the stamp if the "the happy" is its core component.
In the parent category I was blessed. My parents are smart, very loving and have always tried to teach me how to be discerning with regards to quality on all fronts. I was always supported in my decisions, even when it came to leaving college and my home in the Midwest for California to pursue my passion, skateboarding. As a result, I have really enjoyed life (the triumph and even the heartbreak of it).
I have been fortunate to have traveled the world through skateboarding: Moscow, Dubai, Sydney, Paris, Beijing, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Berlin among others - it has been a dream come true.
I have read (and believe) that bliss hinges on living in the moment. The thing I love most about travel (most obvious where there is a big language barrier), is that you spend a far greater amount of time in the moment. Because you have NO idea of what is to come, you're just right there experiencing . . . and it is true, it's constantly blissful.
My have ranged from carpenter to writer, photographer to Professional sporting judge, from National Coach to counter-culture clothing rep.
I've found that saying "yes" to anything career wise that scares you is a great way to expand your horizons and realize your limitations (or lack there of).
I started my own business in 2011 and it is successful (both by my standard as well as in the popular sense).
Teaching - I have always had a desire to share with people anything that I have come to understand and because I love words, I'm pretty good at verbalizing such things.
Scrabble - I'm a total word nerd.
Being happily lost in a foreign country.
Knowing when convention and popular beliefs have become a bad fit for my pursuit of a life free of regret and unrealized potential.
Using my tongue to pick locks.
Movies: Blade Runner, Eternal Sunshine, A Room With A View, The Adventures of Baron Von Munchausen (a film to live by), Kurosawa films, The Life Aquatic (all Wes Anderson), Sleeper, The Road Warrior, The Host, most any documentary - right now "The Other F Word" on Netflix.
TV: The Walking Dead, Six Feet Under, The Wire, The Office (English), Arrested Development. DEREK on Netflix - if you watch this short series without loving it (and crying a bit), we're different in at least one respect :)
Music: (most) Some that come to mind- Stevie Wonder, Jackson Brown, Neon Trees, Pinetop Perkins, Rolling Stones, Mason Jennings, Billie, Etta, (80s from Adam Ant to ZZ Top), Ween, Penguin Prison, Outkast, JTQ, Art of Noise, Wilco, Op Ivy, Queen, AC/DC, ELO, Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, Nick Drake, Devo, Wilco . . .

Often I am thinking about what ultimately should and should not matter to me to live an existence true to myself.
My next experience or adventure because I believe that I am consciously manifesting them.
I am looking for a confident, sexy woman for a fun, honest relationship (from a more traditional one - long or short, to a respectful, racy fling) dinners, movies, drinks, etc . . .
