My self-summary
Winter is coming... and I'm known by close family, friends, and fortunate cuddlers as a human furnace.

Quick soundbites about me:
-I'm hopeful
-Ambitious, but humble
-Witty, sarcastic, and smart
-Kind and genuine
-I've got rhythm
-I'm full of surprise

I'm all about family.

True story: As a younger man, I lived in Thailand as a Buddhist monk. The long term celebacy was a deal breaker, but the simplicity of that life often beckons me. Life can be complicated.
What I’m doing with my life
- Professional nonprofit do-gooder. I've done public policy and community development. Now working in education.

- I like to read, I like to go out and be social, I like to cook dinner, Iooking for a special woman in my life for cuddling and watching movies.
I’m really good at
1. Second impressions.
2. Cooking in needlessly complicated ways.
3. Figuring things out and fixing things.
4. Capoeira aka dodging kicks to the head aka Dance Fighting.
5. Listing things.
6. Moving between serene and absurd.
The first things people usually notice about me
Nice butt, great eyes. Yes, in that order.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food: I hate bean sprouts with a passion; otherwise, yes please.

Books: The Tipping Point, The Things They Carried, The Catcher in the Rye, The Giver, This is How You Lose Her, Gone Girl

Movies: Life is Beautiful, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, High Fidelity, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Once, The Shawshank Redemption, Boyhood

TV: Heroes (season 1), Prison Break (Season 1), Punky Brewster (Season 2)...chances are, if everyone is talking about whatever show is the greatest, I've watched it in a binge session. It's unlikely you'll find me special because of this.

Music:

Bill Withers, Florence and the Machine, The Swell Season, Stevie Wonder, Post Modern Electronic Gypsy Pop.
The six things I could never do without
2. Even numbers
4. Short cuts
6. Gummi Bears
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- Time travel
- The perfect heist and breaking out of prison should said heist not go well (see favorite movies/tv above).
- Who my role models were/are. What kind of role model am I?
- How I hope my boys don't ever become Delta Bravos.
On a typical Friday night I am
Checking in with friends, finding something fun to do or hanging out with my kids. Maybe Live music, maybe a meal, maybe a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not the strongest swimmer.

I've been divorced for three years now.

I'm fiercely loyal.

I'm a big fan of intimate moments.

I've almost gotten into a fight with a Buddhist monk. (He started it)
You should message me if
