Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well- before reading any further know that I recently moved to
Tulum, Mexico and am watching every one of my dreams come to
fruition :-) I am a spontaneous passionate man and I Love to
experience everything Life has to offer. (As per the previous
statement this is validated) I Love meeting new people and having
new experiences (IBID) My tastes vary greatly; I Love getting
suited up, going to the opera and philosophizing over a good bottle
of wine (actually I don't drink anymore) or throwing on jeans, a
t-shirt and my cowboy boots and sluggin' back some Maker's at a
dive bar with some rock 'n' roll blaring (but I'll still dance all
night at the bar). Much how Shakespeare ranges from the most
mellifluous of matters to the darkest of macabre, I like to
appreciate the finer things in Life one evening but then the very
next night enjoy a course of a coarser nature.
I was raised by two women (my sister and my mother) so I grew up
learning to respect women and be very open with my emotions- but
caveat emptor- I'm no softee- I stand and fight to the death for
what I believe in (Viva La Revolucion!) I believe a real man is
strong but knows that vulnerability is a strength- not a weakness.
It is much harder to open yourself up and be honest than it is to
put up walls and defenses. I believe in Truth (even though it isn't
always pretty) and open communication- but, again- please don't
confuse me with a good boy; I got a bit of the rebel in me...ok, a
lot of the rebel in me. (Once more unto the lameness, dear friends)
(I, also, just realized that I have quite a proclivity for
parenthetical phrases...and alliteration).
I loathe judgment and ignorance. (Although, I oft times find myself
judging those who judge others- damn those catch 22's stooping me
in ignorance) I am a very spiritual person but I, myself, cannot
support organized religion. "Do as you will and harm none" shows a
bit of my feelings on that iceberg. I was gonna join a monastery 14
years ago but instead jumped into sex drugs and rock n roll-
touring as a musician for years.
I enjoy being active- I do yoga (I now teach it in Tulum), hike,
snowboard, surf, run and so on.
My standards are very high and I am very picky with women. It takes
more than just a nice body to turn me on (I'll take that too ;-)
but intellect, wit, confidence, self awareness and a gorgeous smile
excite me. Nothin' in the world like a woman with a good sense of
humor that doesn't take herself too seriously- I'm a total goofball
at times. But there are times to be serious and times to let it
rip- knowing the difference is the nuance of Life. I can be as fine
as 360 grit sandpaper but as rough as 40 grit. I come with a
caveat: Not for the faint of heart. Being easily offended is the
only thing offensive to me! Oh, and this is a perfect time to say-
please don't be afraid of your sexuality- embrace it healthily.
There's too much fun and enlightenment to be had...
Wow, I don't think I left anything for you to ask. You didn't
actually read all that did ya? Any more questions?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My goals and aspirations are quite lofty but grounded in reality.
As a writer (are you surprised?) I am working on several
screenplays and have written, produced and directed my own play
called Cirque de Lumiere (or Everyman's Apocalypse) that parallels
the Book of Revelation, but not in the literal end of the world
sense but the end of the world as we know it as we ascend into
higher levels of consciousness. It sounds heavy, but it's a bunch
of clowns running around speaking in Iambic Pentameter :-)
As a bass player I have had three record contracts (the last of
which was with Capitol Records) and toured arenas around the
country. I now have my own band, Dive Bar Stickup. DBS is more than
a band- it is a concept that we are building that is a culmination
of all my passions and talents; it's actually a multimedia
marketing campaign for a beer company called the Clumsy Moose :-)
Ultimately, I am working towards making my own films (I wanna
travel the world making films- so I'm moving to Cozumel to make the
next one- after that...Mumbai?)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Is this where I bloviate? I hope there is enough room in this
little box. Let's see- I'm good at talking about myself! Ha! Ok,

My musical tastes run the gamut pretty well. Classical Music
(Tchaikovsky) and rock are my favorites but I listen to everything
(yeah, I know, they all say that) but most people would have a
difficult time with my ipod on shuffle. My tastes range from Bare
Naked Ladies to Slipknot- from Mozart to Sarah Mclachlan- from jazz
to showtunes- from Busta to...you get the point. As a bass player
rock is my forte.
Food- I Love it. I Love to cook it (still learning). I Love to eat
it. I Love to play with it. Hehehe. Though now I am vegan so I am
learning to cook without people choking :-)
