My self-summary
All business up front and a party in the back. That's how my personality has been described, just like a mullet. I don't actually have a mullet in case you are wondering.

After spending a few years in Los Angeles I'm back in the Bay Area. My style is straightforward and genuine. I'm a combination of old fashioned values and a modern twist. A playful personality conceals an inner intellectual with a taste for travel and adventure. I work in mental health and naturally enjoy discussing anything related to psychology and philosophy. I also spend my free time researching all things paranormal, practicing traditional arts and discovering the human potential.
What I’m doing with my life
Exploring the potential of the human mind.

Trying to set a world record for fingertip push-ups

Achieving my goal of 12 road trips this year (after only 7 last year)
I’m really good at
Remembering where I parked my car
Cooking
Tying my shoes...I tie them so good that sometimes I have trouble untying them. =)-
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
TV: Anthony Bourdain, American Ninja Warrior, Bizarre Foods, Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, Prison Break, Seinfeld and stand up comedy. I also LOVE big cats. When I cannot see them in their natural habitat I go to the zoo or watch them on nature shows.

I'm kind of a bookworm. Most of my reading material centers around social science, psychology and philosophy. I will read anything related to health and neuroscience. The idea that we can construct our own brain through thoughts and behaviors is extremely fascinating to me. (Some recent reads are...The Power of Habit, The Bible, Tao Te Ching, The Power of Now, Healing with Whole Foods, Stepping Out of Self Deception, Subliminal, Excuses be Gone, The Ancient Wisdom of Chinese Tonic Herbs)

My musical taste is wide and varied. I appreciate good music regardless of the genre – from pop/rock to old school rap, to new-age, and even classical. I have a particularly soft spot for anything 80's and karaoke nights.
The six things I could never do without
ASAP Travel deals
Leopard print steering wheel cover
A chin-up bar
The anit-frizz hair serum
Organic Free-Range Eggs
Wasabi Mayonnaise from Trader Joe's (This and the previous item combine to make the most spectacular egg salad you've probably never tasted.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I can have a pet Liger and why Okcupid's pet options are so limited. What about birds, fish and rabbits? I've had all three.
On a typical Friday night I am
Every Friday night is a new adventure...I could be anywhere from trying a new restaurant, taking a road trip or swinging from the rooftops of skyscrapers.
