ABOUT ME:
So, the former New Yorker in me makes me direct and soul-searching has helped me know who I am and what matters to me. I love witty, inspiring conversations with intelligent creative people -- and if they're also tall, handsome and sexy to me in some way, well, so be it. Some of my favorite times are when I'm walking around a city or hiking in nature, enjoying art or a performance, and sharing ideas with someone. I have a soft spot for those with an entrepreneurial spirit and creative inventive types because I'm passionately engaged in building a business and I think we would "get" each other.

Caribbean roots-- raised in Trinidad, I'm friendly, charming, engaging, funny, kind, good listener though I occasionally get so excited I interrupt. Ok, what else? I'm sensual, exciting and excitable, loyal, love to laugh, love to make others laugh. I'm thoughtful (though I could put some more work into this one), and creative. Really enjoy improv classes, experiencing art and theater, and great conversations. I'm adventurous, ambitious, and now that I think about it some more, impatient and yet optimistic. I gel best with people who are physically, emotionally, intellectually energetic, fun, empowering folks.

I'm a trooper, I work hard and I'd like to get back to playing harder. I have a positive attitude about life and the world (yes, this very world we live in), and I'm interested in someone who shares a similar outlook and wants to share more.

***WHO I'M INTERESTED IN MEETING***
A mature, bright, manly, fit, fun, gentleman.

That might mean different things to different people, so here's what it means to me:

I'm interested in well-rounded, happy, successful men.
(1) Well-rounded in terms of having experiences and attitudes about life, culture, race, people, spirituality that are more open and broad than not. You're curious, a learner interested in ongoing growth as a human being, so you still read, still seek.
(2) Happy in terms of your outlook on life; you're generally joyful, positive, emotionally available and self-aware.
(3) And successful in terms of your health, career, finances, and relationships. You're in good condition in those ways so your partner gets to be the delightful, luscious cherry on top (rather than the whole sundae). And you're confident, maybe even ambitious, without being cocky.
(4) You're open to and ready for partnership and parenthood --not on the first date (LOL) but those are things you're looking for too.
(5) You love conversation, communication, not just interrupted monologues but real back and forth, give and take, talk and listen, share and connect.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm the artsy creative typed turned entrepreneurial -- really I'm just meshing the two together. So I'm in the adventure of my life! I love who I've become and I'm in this really exciting place of exploration of new things, new possibilities, new career, new city (moved to DC a year and a half ago), and more.

I'm focused, passionate, and driven when it comes to the things I really care about. At the moment, finding the love of my life and making mad success in my business are at the top of the list.

And you?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
* Listening and being curious
* Networking
* Dancing -- especially to reggae and calypso
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'd say big brown smiling eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
BOOKS/READING: I LOVE poetry! Lately, I've been into how-to books on success in business and investing, branding, etc., and I'm always up for books on personal development, art, spirituality.

MOVIES: I loved Clooney's indy film Good Night and Good Luck, Spike's Inside Man, and small films like Ordinary People, and Amelie; and though I haven't seen Before Sunrise and Before Sunset in a long time, both are still real favorites of mine. Just saw Life of Pi --loved it.

MUSIC: Love to dance, so anything with a beat. And if you love Snap Judgement, This American Life, or similar NPR shows, I know we'll get along.

TV: I don't own one on purpose -- it's the only way I get things done. But late night or rainy days, Yay for Hulu. I'm a big fan of The Profit, Shark Tank, anything with dance, Modern Family and a couple other guilty pleasures in there.

FOOD: Give me Thai, Vietnamese, Indian food any day of the week. And I couldn't live without kale and scrambled eggs.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Laughter
Great friends
wi-fi (or some way to get on the web)
My cell phone
Good conversation
Music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
* Developing my business
* How to retire by 45, move to a beach somewhere, and from there sculpt, read, make love, and run my global empire from my laptop while sitting on my front porch overlooking the water, next to my man who is charming, funny, intelligent, and really, really fine.
* the family I want to have someday soon.

*Why 4 out of every 5 men on OKCupid describe themselves as "laid back." I have never found this to be a turn on.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
So I haven't been doing much of this lately but this is what I'd love to do with the right company: I love hiking, yoga, modern dance and dance theater like Ailey company, regular theater, going to art museums, comedy shows, and of course, going dancing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I get lost in DC about twice a week. Still.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
* You're looking to date and get to know someone and have a long-term relationship, and you're not scared off by the f-word (family).
{Note: And you're actually interested in talking and perhaps ultimately meeting, as opposed to messaging /texting forever.}
* You're kind, honest, sensual, thoughtful.
* You actually created a profile and answered some questions (and you're not challenged by writing sentences with more than four words). AND your profile includes a picture of yourself, maybe even one smiling; you know, where you don't look so hard and angry (take it easy, Ice Cube!).
* You read what I wrote in ***Who I'm interested in meeting*** at the end of the first section above and thought, "yeah, that's me."

Hey, you don't have to be Superman, but if you can leap tall buildings in, say, two, maybe three bounds tops, I'm your chick.
