I love the outdoors, and feeling the sun on my body makes me happy. An east coast transplant, I have a little house near the Mission in SF and have fallen hard for the vibrancy and diversity of the neighborhood. The live-and-let-live ethic I found in the Bay Area has been liberating. I value articulate wit, discerning observations, emotional intelligence, and a sense of fairness. I enjoy art in all forms.
I try to find the humor in things, which is not hard in our absurd/wondrous world.
I see live music whenever possible. I play some guitar and bass and I’m usually humming a song stuck in my head.
My parents are immigrants (my dad is German and my mom Colombian) so I've had some exposure to other cultures. I need more travel in my life!
While I'm a "nice" guy, dress and act the part, I have a little bit of an edge, and I'm attracted to some radical opinions. I like a dose of irony and quietly bristle at excessive BS. I enjoy truth revealed! I empathize with the underdog and don't easily tolerate unfairness. But I have good manners! I’m a respectful hedonist, GGG (thanks Dan), and naturally gravitate toward enjoying and giving pleasure. I have a strong romantic side and if I meet the right person, will fall head over heels. I'm also open to less serious relationships, and having fun in this great part of the world!
I have a nicely amicable relationship with my ex and split time 50/50 with our 13 year old boy. We have worked hard to stay respectful and support each other. This has paid giant dividends in our kid’s well-being and self-confidence.
