Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love being in my body, I practice and study yoga, meditation, and
just started learning Pilaties. I love the feeling of discovering
how to turn off a certain muscle in order to start to integrate
another muscle that's been dormant or atrophied. I love the
challenge of holding a pose and feeling the different aspects of my
body connecting together. I strive to not just go through the
motions, but rather to be aware of each moment, each breath as I
strive to articulate my spine, or engage my abs while keeping my
neck as relaxed as possible. To walk right into the stress and
learn how to stay calm and even tame it through the breath, that
then carries over into my daily life showing me how to stay calm
and centered no matter the crisis or tradgedy that is unavoidable
Cooking is another passion of mine, and I cook a lot from sctratch
like my grandmother used too. I love thinking about different
flavor combinations or smelling garlic mixed with ginger, onions,
and jalapeños sautéing on the stove. Or the perfect smoothie with
cherries, basil, bananas, coconut water and a touch of peanut
butter. Or bitting into a pluot and feeling the intense sweetness
and perfect blend of tartness that only adds joy to my day.
Records, oh how I wish in this day in age I didn't love records as
much as I do. When music is so easy to acquire why on earth would I
spend so much time in record stores thumbing through vinyl records.
The smell of the card board the weight of them in your hand,
finding that song that has been missed placed by history or hearing
the latest hit song with the depth that only vinyl can offer. All
of the artists I would have never heard of or fell in love with if
it wasn't for my time hunting and gathering amongst the other music
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Growing and learning as much as I can while my time on this planet
permits me too. I think knowledge is treasure. "There is no
security only opportunity" is quote I recently heard and instantly
liked. I've had tremendous luck in this life both blissful and
tragic. Any moment can be your last breath and I strive to walk
with that knowledge each moment I am alive and get to feel all that
this world has to offer.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Collecting eye rolls
Being in the moment

Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love music and I enjoy a wide range of styles including guilty
pleasures like Brittney Spears "Toxic" but this song is probably my
favorite song if I had to choose:
I love to read as well, currently I'm reading "I await the devil's
coming" by Mary MacLane (7/26/15)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Water - especially rivers, lakes, and ocean
Fresh fruits/fresh veggies
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I can help people feel what it's like to be in their body. How
much I can learn in one lifetime. And I am perpetually amazed at
how many people move from their wounds rather than from a place of
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Talking, laughing, playing, learning, moving, and teasing the ones

I grew up Irish so I have a sense of humor and have been known for
a quick wit and a touch of sarcasm
My father was an ex-Catholic priest and was the most amazing
Christian I have ever known in this world. I love Christian
teachings it's just seems so few walk with them.
My mother is an intuitive healer/teacher/consoler which most ask
what does that mean? And of course it's hard to explain in a few
sentences. The basics is she teaches how to be emotionally
intelligent as well as how to learn to recognize where "you" are.
I've studied with her as well co-taught intuitive development
Ideally I'd like to find a partner who knows who they are and has a
sense of being grounded. Someone who is also looking for someone to
live with them but not for them. Someone who wants to be a witness
to my triumphs as well as my epic stumbles along this strange
existence. I have crawled, walked, run, and flown around the block
and I honestly can say I have no regrets. I'm a mentally,
emotionally, physically, and spiritually intelligent man looking
for a partner with similar traits. I am of course a huge work in
progress with my own blind spots and short comings, but I believe
myself to be imperfectly perfect as are all forms of life on this
planet, at least to me.
