I am comfortable in my own skin and don't feel much need to appear
any greater than I am. I have found that if I am honest with myself
and follow my intuition, that I tend to find myself where I want to
be. One of my personal philosophies is to lean gently toward the
positive. Happy is my default.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a relatively recent transplant to San Francisco, having moved here in December of 2011. I work in the clinical lab at a local hospital and love coming home to my apartment below Twin Peaks with a view of downtown, the bay and the hills beyond. Life is good.
I’m really good at
I love to dance.... without a doubt my favorite physical activity.
I enjoy couples dance and have some background in swing and salsa.
My real passion is free-form to anything that's meant to be danced
to, really.... I like everything from melodic poly-rhythmic
electronica to greasy funk to hip-hop to a tight bar band. And I
tear it up.
I'm a good communicator and a good friend. I laugh easily. I have a
sharp wit and a playful streak. I make tasty food.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm real. I like being appropriately transparent, honest, and
That I am socially extroverted.... while being a total introvert.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies......I don't watch regular television at all and haven't for
years. I love movies tho and enjoy sharing that experience. I tend
to shy away from shallow blockbusters (but enjoy a well-made one)
and gravitate mainly toward films that make me think and feel. My
favorites include "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind", "The
World According to Garp", "V for Vendetta", and "The City of Lost
Children". Oh, and "Hedwig and the Angry Inch".
Music..... where to start. I love it. Not radio pop. I love melody
and innovation.... simplicity and complexity. And I have a thing
for backing vocals. Some favorites: Wilco, Spoon, Leonard Cohen,
The Mountain Goats, The Minders....
When it comes to live music I gravitate to either bands that make
me dance, or in some way put on a show. I love good dj's (Tipper,
NastyNasty, etc). There are plenty of bands that I like and play at
home, but who I won't readily go see live.
Food..... I am a total foodie and I love to head out into the city
and explore the wonderful food options we have here. Some favorites
are Mission Beach Cafe, Blue Plate, Central Kitchen and Zazie. I
buy organic for home and don't feel bad at all paying more for
truly free-roam eggs and more-humane meat. I love vegetables.
The six things I could never do without
My beautiful wife and adorable daughter.
Meaningful and intimate friendships.
A non-Safeway-style source of quality food.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Travel.... where I might go next and when. I have a passion for
Latin America and go there whenever I can. I have traveled in
Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Belize, Guatemala and of course Mexico,
which I love. I spent a few months living in Argentina and know
that I will return there someday for sure. Buenos Aires is a gem of
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing with my daughter.
Shuffling cards and making plays with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Right here, right now, in this setting.....
That I like living simply and avoid clutter in my home. I like
making the things we have to do every day as smooth as possible. I
