My self-summary
Let me start off with a disclaimer about why i am on OKC. New people, new adventures, new activities, fun.

I was recently at a multi-cultural wedding in Nassau, Bahamas. One of my old friends started making fun of how I was able to comfortably jump into different conversations and actually contribute something. He called me a worldly man. Seeing as my hero in life is the guy from the Dos Equis commercials (half kidding), I was flattered.

I'm a curious gentleman. I like to draw on a variety of experiences to be able to relate to people and understand what makes them tick. I like to have different types of fun: Traveling, fine dining (Foreign cinema is one of my favs), live music, museums, independent/foreign films, etc...
When it comes to night life, the dive bar doesn't do it for me unless it's a week niqht. I like music and Ambiance. I like to mix it up on different nights or even on the same night. I can start with wine, Tappas/dark chocolate/cheese, and a scintillating conversation and end up working up a sweat at a dance club into the ungodly hours of the morning. Other nights, I can go for a quiet Dinner, live classic Jazz, or a nice milonga.

The problem is I don't get to do half the things I want to do because my work makes it a bit difficult to meet new people. That's where you come in. Although I like variety in activities and experiences, I value quality when it comes to people. I don't want to hang out with a different girl every week.

Ok. I think I've said enough.
What I’m doing with my life
Establishing a better balance between work and play.

I'm in the early stage of a career in health services research. What is that, you ask? Hell if I know, but I promise it's good shit. Social justice, saving the world, and all that good jazz while still making a decent income. Got some pretty good news recently on this front, that makes me feel validated and excited.
I’m really good at
Empathizing and solving other people's problems; latin dancing; playing soccer; debating.

I like making people feel comfortable.
