Fun-loving, with need for frequent introspection. Can be a goofball
when not stressed about work. Love good wine & bizarre foods.
I'm a music lover with pretty insanely eclectic tastes. Like to
travel when I can, I need beaches and sunshine. I am down to earth
and real, and am attracted to happy, genuine people. I have been in
Dallas for 11 years now, but want to keep discovering new things. I
can enjoy winding down, cooking (yes, I'm good), & chilling
out. I'm a big on foreign/independent films, and enjoy going to
shows. Work-wise, I'm in the education business. But I want to open
a bar/restaurant somewhere in the Mediterranean in the next 4-5
years!! Will spend several months of the year there... I'm
open-minded and try to be kind to everyone, irrespective of social
status, religion, etc. etc. I think tolerance and fairness are
super important qualities in the company I keep.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm finishing a degree (5 months left) so that's kinda taking
mainstage at the moment, but I need to escape every few days and or
I'll eat up the laptop. The degree will open certain doors, but
does not define who I am.
Working on a my first novel (have published more than a dozen short
stories internationally), traveling (not really at this point, till
the degree is over), exploring art, the human condition, the animal
I’m really good at
being a host; being an organizer; starting the revolution every
morning promptly at 7am, wait, can we make that 11?
I am socially conscious--I recycle; I worry about where my fish is
from; and I want to know who & what I'm supporting exactly for
I'm good at standing up for what I believe is right &
Coming from a very poor country, I'm very interested in how things
can change for the better.
afterwards, i like to kick back and have a good time.
The first things people usually notice about me
My colorful socks??
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food & travel shows, history and Discovery features.
I read a bunch; favorites include works in "magical realism" - so
Marquez, Rushdie, Borges, etc., etc....
ALL kinds of music, anything from bluegrass to opera to drum 'n
bass. As long as passion, talent and dedication are involved, they
can hardly be wrong.
I'm a foodie, I cook sometimes, but am always looking for new
The six things I could never do without
Music - need a source for riddims.
Animals - anything, a squirrel could be a good friend
Human Company. Perhaps with a beer.
Something soapy & toothpasty
Spices - as aforementioned, I like to cook.
The rest can be substituted.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If I've done enough good; and how I can do more.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out and about usually. Anything from an art gallery, wine
tasting/chugging, to dancing?
Also can have quiet nights, to catch a movie and chill. Though some
restless nights, I might need to be tranquilized. :p
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
People think I act younger than my age. But I pretty much like it
Sometimes, I feel kinda alienated (I'm a writer after all!), but as
Bukowski said, there are worse things than being alone.
And the OkCupid profile test thingy deems I'm a "Loverboy"--Random
Gentle Love Master (RGLM--and that I thrive in committed
relationships. But I kinda knew that anyway; it's just that being
termed a "Loverboy" is cheesy as hell.
Also, I love empty profiles. They let my imagination run wild.
You should message me if
you find me interesting and if you feel you have an open heart and
mind. Fun times will follow for sure.
