My self-summary
Since moving to the DC metro area five years ago, I've experienced the wild roller-coaster ride of life. Perhaps you know the saying: "If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans." I originally came to DC to work in politics, but now that God and I have had a good laugh about that, I'm enjoying a very fulfilling and sustainable career in sacred music, with my sights set on beginning grad studies in choral conducting in the very near future. (Why pick between business or pleasure when you can have them both?) Now that all that has been settled, I want to find someone to accompany me on my adventure, as I will accompany hers.

I am passionate about family, music, cuisine, art, the Catholic Faith, and life. I see God in the sacraments and in the beauty of his creation. I believe that we were born to live fully and passionately, and I would like to find someone who thinks the same. I believe the Church helps us in this quest for a truly life-filled existence grounded in the Lord.

People matter, and the quality of the time we spend with them matters, too. For this reason, I like to take the time to stop and enjoy the world around me; constantly rushing through life without being able to take things in is not living. I enjoy taking the time to appreciate the natural world. I enjoy architecture, museums, music, interesting destinations, and undiscovered cultures, and I love to share these experiences with others. I am also very passionate about good cuisine, both in terms of exploring the local food scene and cooking up delicious things in my own kitchen -- and better still if paired with some great beer or wine. I especially love to take a moment to savor life in this way (pun intended?) with those who are dearest to me.

And now, a little about the sort of person I'm looking for:

The qualities that I value in a partner are dependability, loyalty, graciousness, kindheartedness, compassion, and a big capacity for affection. I want to pursue an emotionally and spiritually committed relationship, in which love is demonstrated through sacrifice and selflessness, putting the needs of the other ahead of one's own.

I desire a relationship with purpose. For this reason, the woman I seek would be serious about discerning a call to marriage as a vocation and be firm in her convictions.
What I’m doing with my life
Developing a career as a professional choral conductor with plans to begin graduate studies imminently.
The first things people usually notice about me
My Italian driving skills (think New York City driving, but with greater finesse), the overtly Hispanic pronunciation of my name (or any Spanish word), and my adventurous culinary preferences.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next trip. On the docket for this year: Charleston, SC (done); Boston, MA; and one of the following: Russia, Greece/Turkey, or Québec. We'll see what happens.
On a typical Friday night I am
either with friends, or hitting the town solo. If there's a metropolis at your doorstep, make use of it!

Message me if you would care to learn more about me and think we might be compatible, or if I messaged you first. :)
