Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Let me start off with a disclaimer about why i am on OKC. New
people, new adventures, meaningful connections, 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
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: dining (Foreign cinema is one of my favs),
amateur live music, independent/foreign films, picnics, hiking,
When it comes to night life, the dive bar doesn't do it for me
unless it's a week niqht. I like music, ambiance, and character. 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. (Not much clubbing
recently). Other nights, I can go for a quiet Dinner, live
Jazz/brass band or a nice milonga.
Although I like variety and lighthearted fun, I value quality when
it comes to people. I need meaningful conversations and 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
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Exploring live music venues in the bay area(jazz, blues, brass or
Exploring walkable neighborhoods for daytime promenades, brunch,
and bar hopping
Learning to play the guitar
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
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Empathizing and solving other people's problems; latin dancing;
playing soccer; debating.
I like making people feel comfortable.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Half the time, I'm at home unwinding, catching up with family &
friends on the phone.
I do most of my going out on Saturday night: usually involves live
music and/or dancing.
Nowadays, I'm looking to do more things on weeknights.
