My self-summary
I’ve hoped our paths would cross as we explore the world and life, but I seem to keep missing you. Lost in thought and immersed in writing at my favorite cafe I’ve occasionally looked up, hoping our eyes would meet and we’d smile, but you didn’t come today. Sitting in the park I’ve played my guitar, wanting you to hear my soul and be moved, but you must’ve been just out of earshot. I guess it’s half timing, and the other half’s luck. Wherever you are, I haven’t met you yet.

You feel like you’ve been unplugged from the Matrix that most are content remaining connected to and now you see life and the world differently, never wanting to go back. Because of that you’re awake, aware, and insatiable in your desire to explore, learn, and live to the fullest. Together we’re comfortable as we are, accepting of our wonderful imperfections, and determined to never stop evolving as individuals and as partners. Knowing that heaven is in the here and now, following the beaten path bores you; you'd rather make this a life to remember.

I’d love to meet a woman who’s intelligent, grounded, and with a kind, beautiful soul, not only to share the great events and venues of this area, but whatever strikes our fancy, wherever it may lie. You carry yourself with an unpretentious confidence, and with that you’re not afraid to be silly and playful. You're fit, feminine, sensual and sexual, and yet remote locales and getting dirty don’t faze you; we have a vast world out there to explore after all.
What I’m doing with my life
I came to California for a much needed change after being in NYC for 8 years, and to help develop a company and industry that's pioneering exoskeletons. It's the most challenging and rewarding work I've done in a long time. Helping paralyzed people walk again, and seeing my efforts directly and profoundly changing lives -- there's nothing like it.

Saying yes. Getting lost so that I can find myself. Discovering what and who matters, and trying to direct more of my energy there. Life's a journey and a precious gift. We know less than we think, control less than we wish, and worry too much about things that at the end of the day don't matter as much as they seem. I want to experience life as fully as I can while doing my best to be true to myself. And I'd love someone equally awesome taking the journey with me.
I’m really good at
Helping people feel comfortable being their true selves.
Seeing the good in people, things, and situations.
Finding beauty in the simplest of things and places.
Building and fixing things.
Learning foreign languages and feeling at ease in any culture.
Knowing a little bit about a lot of things.
Witty banter.
Making you laugh.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile and my eyes.
I'll strike up a conversation with people anywhere.
I try to be appreciative of everything and say "thank you" a lot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: Love suspense and action movies, comedies, indie films, foreign films, dramas...
Music: A bit of almost every genre...
Food: There's not much that I won't eat...

Do you really want to read a nicely curated list of all the movies, songs, artists, and cuisines I love? Not really, right? I like a lot of things, but am also terrible at answering "What's your favorite ____?" questions. So let's just get to know each other the old fashioned way.
The six things I could never do without
Mindfulness, introspection, and personal growth
New experiences of every kind
Physical and verbal affection
Curiosity and the opportunity to never stop exploring and learning
Wonder, awe, and inspiration
Optimism and the knowledge that tomorrow hasn't been written yet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My family
How to continually improve as a man, a son, a friend, a partner.
The universe, the 100 billion galaxies with a trillion planets in each, and the 10% that could have life.
You should message me if
You're ready for something amazing.
You've participated in an ayahuasca ceremony and would enjoying sharing stories about the journey.
