Who...Me?!?!?! Alright...Some words to help sum me up: Passionate, Driven, Ambitious, Motivated, Loud, Fun-Loving, Focused & Competitive.
I'm an accomplished and educated young professional who's always scheming on how to shake up the world. I value my family, friends, profession, fitness, good music, culture, traveling & finding ways to bring value to people. Professionally, I get to fulfill my dream and serve, every day. Although I take my work very seriously, having fun is also serious business. To quote the great and legendary professor Old Blue Eyes, Frank Sinatra, “Fresh air makes me throw up. I can't handle it. I'd rather be around three Denobili cigars blowing in my face all night.” Whenever possible, I stay out until until the sun comes up...But I can appreciate a small coffee shop with a book or Netflix marathons under a Snuggie. I live with intense purpose, play my music loud, sing even if I don't know the words and often laugh til my belly hurts. I do everything to fully enjoy the moments I have on God's Green Earth. I'm 29 years of age. Intellectually, I'm a humble learner and dare to think outside the box. I want to know everything like Bradley Cooper in Limitless. Physically, I feel like I'm 21 and stay in shape by committing to the gym 4-5 times per week and playing team sports. I carry myself with class, in that classic timeless manner captured in old school pictures that makes you wish you could put yourself in another era. When you find common ground, it doesn't matter if it's a child or a grandma...you can connect with people. I'm Not a Dreamer-I make things happen. Tolstoy once said that "hopes are the dreams of a waking man" and I've never felt as alive as I do right now.
I'm open to new things and would love to put Forrest Gump & the Dos Equis guy to shame when they read my memoirs.
Not exactly knowing what the future holds excites me. I tend to click with people that have that same infectious and enthusiastic love of life, drive, ambition and spontaneous nature to make things unforgettable. Tell me about something that makes your eyes light up and you'll captivate me. I love feeling inspired by hearing about people's "So there I was," moments that help define them.
All in all, I've lived quite a life for 29 years on this planet & there's so much about myself that I can't adequately explain in this rant. Here's the bottom line: I'm a real person, I know who I am, what I'm about, and what I want out life.
I have a huge passion for sports and love all things New York (Yankees/Knicks/Giants). I'll admit, I do take in the Dungeons and Dragons for Jocks (Fantasy Sports), regularly attend sports games, play in multiple men's leagues & love competition. I'm a former college basketball walk on and at 5'9", I'll take on any challenge in a game of H-O-R-S-E. I'm the FURTHEST thing from Skee-Lo (I wish I was a little bit taller), so taller women feel free to wear your heels but do NOT give the "Awwww c'mere"/Bend-Over/Little Brother Hug to me, ever. Hahaha. Athletic women who take care of themselves get major bonus points. If you can talk Sportscenter, I may clone you.
In a partner, I'm looking for a strong, confident, intelligent, nurturing & caring woman who understands how to find the positive side of things. I am someone who will challenge you & keep you on your toes, but also accept you as who you are. My goal is to help you feel like your favorite, best version of yourself.
I'm blessed to be surrounded by many amazing people, but I don't take 'em for granted. I'm committed to living each moment with passion and leaving a Sasquatch-Sized Footprint on this world. Jay-Z said it right..."One Life to live, notice you get no sequel...so I truly need to live this like my last movie." So get your pens ready and join a part of the adventure, because this Independent Film of My Life is guaranteed to be a One-of-a-Kind, Award-Winning Classic.
(For you beginners out there, that is how you write an About Me Section)
I'm passionate about serving, but also enjoy volunteering. I also began writing a book and plan its release in 2014-2015.

1. My Phone (Although I do have etiquette with it)
2. Working Out/The Gym/Sports
3. Reading/Intellectual Stimulation
4. Spending Time with Friends/Family
5. Traveling & Experiencing new cultures
With that said, I can be pretty minimalistic and operate with nothing. I've endured Having my home devastated by a flood, getting evacuated & living in a FEMA trailer....
"Its only after we’ve lost everything that we’re free to do anything." ~ Tyler Durden
I also wonder about how my future lady lady is gonna look at me and set my world on fire.
Immediately after work, hitting the gym, grabbing dinner with my friends, watching a sports game & then going to a house party or out to a bar/night club w/ live music.
...other nights, I might burn through a book, stay in & catch up on shows on Netflix/DVR or recharge. I'm pretty adaptable, but always value good company. I'm not afraid to travel any distance or go to whatever extent necessary for the privilege to spend time with extraordinary people.
Ladies, thank you for takin' care of bidnass. That was EXCRUCIATING
Also, it's big & gets in the way sometimes (my personality)
A couple lil' things about who I'd love to meet...
- A sweetheart with a lil' sassiness
- A strong woman I can give the world to
- A lady who can paralyze me with her smile, hypnotize me with her eyes and floor me with her lips
- A lil' firecracker who is in shape and loves looking and feeling sexy and makes me wanna uncontrollably ravish her at every opportunity
- Someone I can laugh with to the point of tears that will put total trust in us and our future together
- A girl who will believe me with 100% certainty when I tell her that "Everything is going to be okay"
A couple harsh truths:
- If you only have head shots, I'll assume you're hiding your body and that you're insecure (physical attraction is a must and confidence is sexy).
- I'm attracted to brains. If you're not committed to growing or learning...I'll get bored. Sorry tards!
- There isn't a bigger red flag than if you have more pictures of your pets than yourself. Even though Mr. Skittles is SO cute, I wanna see YOU ;) (I love pets, but c'mon. If you're gonna love your cat more than me...Beat it)
* Cool friends and positive people to spend time with are always a plus, too. If the connection isn't there or time isn't right, whatever...Let's still make the best of it and enjoy one another's company!
Hit me up!
