My self-summary
Probably the best way to describe myself is passionate about life. I like trying new things and exploring new places and ideas. I love to learn, try not to take life or myself too seriously and enjoy being creative. I like to live simply and dont like owning a lot of things. I like thrift stores over the mall. I'm learning to live in and appreciate the moment. Healing Touch and meditation center me so that i can do that more easily. Miguel Ruiz, author of the Four Agreements, teaches four principles that I also try to live by: 1) be impeccable with your word, 2) don't take anything personally, 3) don't make assumptions and 4) always do your best. I've found that those 4 principles drastically reduce drama and disappointment in my life.

My educational background includes an MBA from the university of chicago and undergrad from UCLA. I worked in the corporate world for awhile but realized that I'm happier being an entrepreneur and helping others be their best. Currently I am developing a business strategy/marketing plan for a children's art studio. I also manage the studio and lead classes and other events. In addition to that, I have my own practice in Healing Touch, reiki and accupressure.

I love to travel to both new and familiar places near and far. I have been to Java, Sumatra and Bali, Peru, Japan, Nova Scotia, Italy, and Mexico. I would love to explore some of these places again as well as some new places with someone who shares a passion for travel to places off the beaten track. Although right now, I'd be pretty happy spending some time in California, Colorado, Sedona or Hawaii. When the weather is warm, I like to spend time outdoors as much as possible. That was one of the reasons I loved living in Southern California. I enjoy hiking, biking, kayaking, and playing tennis. I'm always looking for a tennis partner. I'm not sure I'm the person to take your game to the next level if you play on a league but we'll have fun and get a great workout. I like to attend outdoor festivals and concerts in Milleneum/Grant park and have picnics at the Morton Arboretum or anywhere else that is green or sandy, explore off-beat restaurants, theater or comedy clubs.

I would like to have someone in my life who values and practices personal and spiritual growth. Someone who likes to think creatively (not necessarily artistically) and likes to discuss new concepts and ideas and explore new places. Someone who is open-minded, resilient, curious and optimistic; someone who likes who he is and is not afraid to be that person and who can express his desires, thoughts, feelings and affection easily. Someone who is always striving to become a better person while helping others grow along the way. And definitely someone who loves to hug, kiss and cuddle.
I’m really good at
Flying by the seat of my pants, clearing clutter and organizing people's homes and offices, breaking large projects into small actionable tasks, not worrying or sweating the small stuff, being flexible, being optimistic, and bringing levity to situations.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like to read non-fiction, primarily books on personal/spiritual growth (Miguel Ruiz, Eckhart Tolle, Paramahansa Yogananda, Penny Pierce, Marianne Williamson, Martha Beck et al). I also like humor books by Tina Fey, David Sedaris, Dave Barry, Jon Stewart and fiction by Joyce Carol Oates, Pearl S. Buck, Jane Austen, Amy Tan, Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I always have about 6 books going at the same time. As for movies, I like primarily comedies, but also suspense thrillers, documentaries, and foreign films. Pulp Fiction, What's Eating Gilbert Grape, Scott Pilgrim, Benny and Joon, Little Miss Sunshine, Chocolat, Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, galaxy quest, Paul, shall we kiss, The emperor's new groove, lost in translation, the libertine, raise the red lantern, are a few I can think of off the top of my head. I don't really like TV but I will occasionally watch episodes of: archer, portlandia, family guy, south park, orange is the new black, downton abbey, the blacklist, the office, parks and recs. In music I'm listening to Pandora worldbeat, Buddy Guy, Kasabian, The Verve, Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Beta Bend, Thievery Corporation, Radiohead, White Stripes, Gospel Claws, Zero 7 and Henry Binns, Gipsy Kings, Ottmar Liebert, some disco. Depends on my mood.
I love Thai, Indian, Japanese, Indonesian, Peruvian, and Ethiopian food. Any kind of fusion is fun too. Not a steak person but I will eat seafood.
The six things I could never do without
My connection to Source/God/Spirit/Oneness, whatever you want to call it, would be the only thing I couldn't do with out. Other things I like are my kids, dark chocolate, nature, fresh water that tastes good, all forms of intimacy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Who I am, how everything is connected and what I'm supposed to be doing here. I also spend a lot of time thinking about how to be a good role model for my boys and the balance between letting them learn from their mistakes and teaching them how not to make stupid mistakes.
On a typical Friday night I am
Enjoying the quiet if my 2 boys are out of the house, making something, working, going out for dinner. I don't usually make plans, but just do whatever moves me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Even though I have sweet, wonderful kids, I often feel like a failure as a parent.
