My self-summary
Reformed DC stereotype!

Until recently I was your standard 8 AM - 8 PM K Street consultant - and while it was interesting work - it was not particularly fulfilling.

After saving up a for awhile, I decided to embark on a bit of an adventure - by helping a friend of mine start a business (a dance studio). I love dance (especially latin - coming from a mexican family), and for the past several months have thrown myself wholeheartedly into that passion!

These days you can find me most commonly teaching at the studio, social dancing at the studio, doing exciting business-y things at the studio, or working out at the gym (I love lifts and aerials in dance! but used to be very skinny; trying to build the strength for the dirty dancing lift!).

So enough about me; I'm here to meet you! I enjoy people who have a zest for life, who have a desire to try new things, and who want to explore/learn/laugh/etc.

My perfect day with a significant other would involve:
Daytime: Something adventurous! hiking? trapeze class? tough mudder? throw a dart at a map of the DMV area and drive there and figure out something to do?

Evening: Something classy. I am a dancer, so some tango maybe? Crash an embassy gala? Musical at Kennedy Center? Make our own outdoor movie night somewhere?
What I’m doing with my life
teaching dance! I teach salsa, bachata, merengue, zouk, kizomba, waltz, foxtrot, among others. I'm also starting a dance company out of the studio I work at - VERY excited about it!!
I’m really good at
playing/singing "Your Body is a Wonderland" (not ashamed to admit that one of the reasons I learned guitar was that many, many years ago a girl I had a crush on really liked this song)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have a real prop sword (Inigo Montoya's) from The Princess Bride hanging on my wall...
Six things I could never do without
portable speakers
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why the world is how it is. Why people are as they are. How can we improve things. Wondering if am I earning my time here.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually teaching salsa/bachata. Then either running out to continue the night dancing or running home to my comfy couch and netflix
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Surprisingly, this has been an issue in the dating world for me, so I think it's worth mentioning. It's probably related to me being a dancer, but physical touch and affection are so incredibly important for me.

If you don't like to touch/be touched we almost certainly won't work. I love hugs, kisses, cuddles, caresses, nuzzles, and every other one of those words you can think of. I'm also perpetually hot, so if you are perpetually cold, I can be your personal heater and you can be my personal AC!
You should message me if
you want to dance with me or go on an adventure with me!

Also, I have a very friendly cat I adopted from a shelter who is not going anywhere, and if/when I have a house with a yard I would love to get a dog or two, so...if you're an animal lover!
The two of us
