My self-summary
I'm going to try something here. I'm going to keep it simple and honest. This isn't a resume, it's not an advertisement - It's just me.
I'm 38 years old, I'm educated, I like to think, to dance, to feel. I'm a dreamer and a hypocrite. I've accepted that I won't reach enlightenment in this life. That's cool. I'd like to get a little closer though, at least I want to feel more connected to the world I live in, less caught up in my own head, and when I die I want to feel that I did what I could to help a hurting planet. And since the world may come to an end soon, I want to get in a lot of dancing and laughter while I'm here. Nah mean?

I'm ready to meet someone, but dang it I just don't feel compelled to look much. It's a lot of work, looking. A lot of mental energy.. It's not that i want to skip the exciting fun who-is-this-amazing-woman!? getting to know each other part... nope it's just knowing that what I really want is that woman I still want to be with (and vice versa) afterwords. To enjoy knowing and being known, sharing that platform from which we discuss the events of our days and lives. That whay what I look forward to most right now.

More to come. All other text is outdated unless noted as 2017. Ciao for now

Music: There's two types of music, good and bad (of all genras).... That being said: Reggae. Not just the old classic stuff, but the new era of amazing upbeat conscious reggae. I'm not really into popular American music. I also love old accoustic blues, bluegrass, some folk, West and North African traditional music, Indian sitar stuff. Some hiphop, some funk. But really, I love conscious dancehall passionately.

On a typical Friday night I am
(I need to edit this I'm SURE!) , but first I got work to do) Friday, Saturday. Monday, Wednesday, are not greatly differentiated in my world these days for a couple reasons, and I guess this is a relevant question now that I'm getting into it. The first reason is that I'm like "there are way too many people in this city and I'm not trying to be around even more when it's my time off" I grew up in LA, I loved going to Fairfax High, loved raving, and bobbing and weaving through through the people in Venice. I like going out to eat and an empty restaurant is probably going to feel depressing. More or less, I'm big-city savvy, but I'm less of an "LA person" than are most in this sea of people around me are. When I go see a movie it is anathama to me to go on a Friday night - why would I want to stuff myself into a packed theater when I can enjoy a relatively empty theater on a Tuesday afternoon.

And that leads to the second reason Friday night doesn't hold much significance for me, which is it doesn't have to. I'm my own boss, my work schedule is not defined by the 5/2 week structure. I'm at the front end of a start-up and I both have the freedom to come and go as I choose - the caveat being that i have to 12-16 hour days 6-7 days a week because that's that's what it's going to take to to do this thing. So.. Friday? Ain't nobody got time for that
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That drinking money thing. At least I'm straight up
You should message me if
You like reggae and you simply want to go hear some with me.
You'd enjoy having some drinks while waxing philosophic.
I don't know, you tell me why
