I am an independent business owner (I own a restaurant and a clothing company), a full time graduate student, a musician and writer as well as an accomplished martial artist. I am well educated with an mba, an mis degree and another ma in psychology and i am currently pursuing my msw. I have other business ideas that my lack of time hasn't allowed me to develop further. I am very creative and never lack for something to do.
In my former life I was a phenomenological and existential psychotherapist and I've written two books based upon my clinical experiences. The first is a book of fables designed to allow younger children to identify themselves in difficult circumstances. The second book is a memoir of sorts detailing my experiences thus far. Again, they are great stories.
I train hard to keep myself competitive. I love traveling, theatre, music and movies as well as climbing, hiking, rafting, etc. My music is sort of en English soul/pop/rock genre with great metaphor and tremendous hooks. I play regional showcases with my band (or alone) and I record with a dance music producer for a record label in New York.
I am also heavily involved in freemasonry and I belong to seven separate bodies of the fraternity. I am an officer in all parts of the organization and I spend alot of time moving towards enlightenment and working on masonic charities (Shrine Hospitals, The Scottish Rite Children's Learning Center for Dyslexia, etc.).
All of these endeavors allow me to explore my creative side but so far I haven't found someone to share this passion with, not yet. I do have so much to share. I am just as interested in learning about someone else's passions and would love to learn about them.
I am very intuitive and deeply spiritual. Religion has become a more important part of my life. Identifying with a greater power has shifted my perception greatly. I enjoy intellectual and emotional exchanges and anything that promotes growth. I am very different than most people. I have a great deal of energy. I pride myself in being brave and loyal and I hold myself to a higher level of morality and integrity. My friends are very much like me and provide an incredible support network. Between them and my huge family I am blessed.
The woman that I am seeking should be deep in her spirit and soul. She simply has to be free and grounded and not content to be content. Knowing that everything can change in the blink of an eye I am looking for someone who believes in love and more importantly, believes in me.
Knowing those two things at any given point time should be enough to have faith in a relationship. That for me is more important than the size and shape of a body, the faith one practices, or even the colour of someone's skin. Eyes and hands however tell me something about you so I look for those. Maybe all that I really want is a dare to be great situation and someone who knows what that is. No giving of pens...
I am Brave, Smart, and Sweet
