But while so fulfilling, endeavors such as translating Spanish verse just weren't paying the bills, and at the same time the recession crushed my freelance work. So while I've still got a bunch of writing gigs going on, somehow I've become involved in the investment world, focused on Latin America, mostly in a facilitating, consultancy role. Few of my friends can believe I now possess an investment banking license, but I'm so fortunate for the opportunity.
Though I'm a total gringo, I have such a passion for Latin America--just have always felt a deep connection. I've backpacked, studied and worked from Cuba to Patagonia. Then, after an extended stint in San Francisco where I was surrounded by a great creative and activist community, I built my own little writer's cabin in Southern Chile with a view of a snow-capped smoking volcano. Even though I'm no longer down there, life is still muy bueno.
I am close with my family and have great friends and now I'm looking to find a partner to share all of life's adventures. I'm an open and compassionate guy who has a lot to give and I'm ready to give it.
