Learning, growing and moving forward in life !! Like many, wondering if online dating really works? I love being outdoors, live music, culture, art and doing what I can to make this world a better place to live. I am also a single father of a beautiful, smart 9 y.o. daughter who I share custody 50/50, which also gives me adult time. She is the pride and joy of my life. I work with kids, mostly teens and although it takes energy and patience, it's satisfying. I'm always looking for musicians to play music with. Wanna Jam ? You don't have to be overly talented, just not flaky. If you don't want to jam, going for a walk in nature is just as good !! Hello ... is anybody out there?
What I’m doing with my life
I am an Education Coordinator for an Innovative Charter School. In
my free time I stay active by playing in a band, hiking, kayaking,
mountain biking and playing basketball. I also enjoy cooking,
watching interesting movies and taking naps.
I’m really good at
Listening, Problem solving, building things, basketball, playing
instruments, cooking and helping people.
The first things people usually notice about me
Maybe my eyes or maybe my hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like non-fiction, memoirs, autobiographies and biographies. I
also like realistic fiction. Some of my recent reads have been Kite
Runner, Unfamiliar Fishes, Then They Came For Me, A Walk Across The
Sun, Unbroken and Dora's Sleepover. Yes, I also love to read kids
book with my daughter. I am somewhat of movie buff and tend to
watch Indie Films/Foreign Films, but can also find entertainment
value in Hollywood blockbusters from time to time. Music plays a
big part in my life and covers a wide spectrum. I listen to reggae
often, as well as funk, soul, salsa, metal,rock, punk and
everything in between. I like listening to jazz during dinner.
The six things I could never do without
Music - playing instruments, listening to it , seeing it live !!
Hope for a better world
Experiencing the many facets of the natural world
Basketball - Watching it and Playing it - I've got to be honest
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to be the best father, parent and friend to my daughter, developing my school in a challenging, changing environment, or what delicious feast I will make for dinner.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing - either with my daughter, alone or with friends.
Sometimes I'm playing music at a local club with my band, which I
love to do.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like the song " Cruel Summer" by Bananarama. Yes, I can be a
sucka for catchy pop tunes
