My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
If I were a season, I’d be the summer—bright, carefree, alive.

If I were an animal, I’d be a grasshopper—playful and hungry for life, action, newness, difference.

And if I were a feeling, I’d be joy.

I’m looking for my media naranja —an intelligent, curious, healthy/active, and funny guy who is ready for a relationship.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Dance dance dancing, running in the East Bay hills, riding bikes, planting tomatoes, drinking mojitos by the lake, dodging lightning bolts on high Sierra ridges, trying to convince my dog that I’m in charge, scheming up travel adventures to distant lands, educating and being educated. Oh, and basking in my two minutes of KQED fame.

Here are a few favorites: The New Jim Crow, The Hummingbird’s Daughter, Behind the Beautiful Forevers, The Tiger’s Wife, Born to Run, La Lacuna, What is the What, The God of Small Things, El Sueño de América, The Milagro Beanfield War, Daughter of Fortune, Graceland, Other People's Children

Poetry: Pablo Neruda (especially “Las Odas Elementales”), Eduardo Galeano

Shows: TV is not my thing, but I do like Madmen and The Wire

Music: Isaac Delgado, Los Desiguales, The Mexican Institute of Sound, Elito Reve y su Charangón, Mayimbe, Manolito Simonet, Los Van Van, Calle Real, Maykel Blanco y su Salsa Mayor, Calle 13, Justin Bieber. Please help me expand my musical horizons!

Food: Healthy, organic, vegetarian. You know, typical Bay Area fare. I highly value the experience of good food and wine. Feel free to put this statement to the test. :)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Cuban music and dance

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have enough life experience and self knowledge to know what you want. You are smart as a whip, fun/funny, active and inspired, and most of all if you are excited about and ready for a relationship. Bonus points (at least like 500) if we share some of the same activity interests or if you speak Spanish, have some sort of connection to Latin America, or love to travel.
