Native New Yorker. Brooklyn born and bred. I look (been told that anyway) and feel a lot younger than I actually am. I am a graphic designer by career, prepress manager for money. Cuban-American, yes I speak (pretty) fluent Spanish. Father of an 13 year old daughter that I share custody of.
Yeah, my 13 year old daughter. That's the one that usually scares you away but let me assure you, I teach her how a woman should be treated by a man and I will treat you with the same respect. Lead by example, as they say.
Some people say I'm the funniest guy they've ever met, some say I'm the most sarcastic guy they've ever met. Both compliments as far as I'm concerned. I play it cool but I am a total geek. I'm a Mac. I drive a Prius. I wear something black everyday (except maybe in the summer). I really don't know what to say here that won't sound like all the other crappy profiles you'll read on this site. I like everything. I like to go out, stay in, eat out, cook, go to concerts, take walks, get tattooed, spend time with my daughter. In addition to my day job as a graphic production manager for the music industry I do a lot of freelance graphic design and also DJ at a bar in my stomping grounds a few nights a month. It's a fun way to make some extra dough and play music that makes me feel like the arbiter of good taste. I also joined the gym for about the 8th time in the past ten years and actually decided to go religiously this time. It's working great so far and I am pleased with the changes. Lost 20 pounds this summer. Gotta keep it up.
I beat cancer six years ago (you couldn't tell from looking at me) and have been taking each day as it comes. I won't allow it to define who I am, but since then I've definitely learned to make the best of what I have. I am 100% recovered and never felt better in my life.
Am I anywhere near 500 words yet?
