been there done that and realized is much more fun when you are
with someone special.
What I’m doing with my life
purpose is key, as are laughing and having a great time whatever
comes. we will have something special if we can laugh together when
things are going every way but how we expected and never lose site
of how we can make things better.
I’m really good at
listening to people tell me secrets, leaving things better than i
find them, and buying into someone else's passions.
The first things people usually notice about me
i am strong, direct and proactive. that does not mean i am not
sensitive and don't enjoy being comfortable, but those who lack
energy, motivation or enthusiasm find me hard to be around. if you
have a passion i get interested easily and certainly am quick to
join adventures you are invested in, even if that is hanging out
and getting lost in an afternoon together.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
don quioxte, the giving tree, seat of the soul, grace & grit,
the four agreements.
jerry maguire, life is beautiful, matrix, the princess bride, the
kingdom, last of the mohicans.
citizen cope, the roots, jarabe de palo, and almost anything that
is deeply inspiring and passionate.
sushi, yogurt, my birthday dinner (steak, pasta and salad), and
The six things I could never do without
i am extremely proud that some of my closest friends made me the
godfather to their children and that my father made me the
godfather to my oldest half sister. my sisters, of which i have
three, make me so much smarter and cooler despite being younger.
lately, i have learned much about how much less is more and with
focusing more on fewer of my friends have found an extraordinary
amount of love and care from an amazingly diverse family with which
i am strongly related regardless of blood. if you are counting, 2
god children and 3 sisters each of which deserves their own spot
makes 5 and the rest of my friends/family makes 6 things i
absolutely would not want to be without.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to inspire those in my life and where to draw inspiration from
and what i can leave behind that will be meaningful.
On a typical Friday night I am
ideally meeting a great friend for a light dinner with a
conversation or a game of chess early before deciding on a workout,
movie or some wonderful adventure that has inspired one of
is helpful if you are comfortable on the back of motorcycle if you
want to pass through traffic on the way.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
my heritage is that of a columbian, catholic, architect, creative,
passionate mother and an american, (via swiss/german roots) jewish,
lawyer, full of drive and intellect father. the love that must have
blinded them to the obvious hurdles they faced (not the least of
which being language) was clearly a remarkable force. in them i
have found ways to learn about empathy and fuel to drive my,
passion and desire for growth.
You should message me if
you have a great smile, love to laugh, think and share. have
figured out what makes you happy and are good at letting people
know. love the sun, snow, to sweat and to play. love telling me
about what you read, whether one-on-one or over dinner with close
you have figured out that a relationship is about more than
traveling and going to dinner and have the time, energy and
enthusiasm to make even sacrifices and compromises enjoyable and
