My self-summary
I'm a hopeless romantic, a super nerd, former singer/actor turned young urban professional, and I loooove to cook and bake. I'm kind of an old fashioned guy at heart, and love to make the people in my life feel special.

I originally hail from MD (DC Metro area), went to school in Ohio (OSU). I can be a dork, whether it be about music, theatre, food, or comic books! I like to stay active, though I'll be the first to say I'm no athlete though I strive to be.

Shoot a message to find out more. :-P
What I’m doing with my life
Former singer now office worker. Finished traveling the world as a singer on a luxury cruise line for the last few years and now staying put.The awesome experience allowed me to see places I never thought I would! Some of the countries I saw included Japan, China, Vietnam, Australia, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Greece, Monaco, Israel, the U.K., the Netherlands, Germany and France. :) I love traveling, but never hurts to find a reason to stay home, or even better, someone to travel with. ;)

I studied operatic voice and graduated from The Ohio State University, and then moved to NYC to pursue a wonderfully stable career in performing! I've since transitioned into the office world, working that 9 to 5 just to stay alive!
I’m really good at
Listening, cooking, eating what I cook, Singing (or at least I hope so), smiling through awkward situations, and knowing how to laugh no matter what life throws at you.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile. Had braces for 4 years so I'm obligated by my parents to flash em, dimple and all. :)

Also, my hair when longer attracts attention, it turns into a mass of curly cues alla Shirley Temple.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm pretty much up for all kinds of books, movies, shows, music and food. I do have a particular fondness for old movies and musicals, like Breakfast at Tiffany's, Houseboat, Singin' in the Rain, and other movies like that. Shows? I love Modern Family, Community, Fringe, ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT, 30 Rock.... the first X-Men animated series. The nerd in me also loves Dr. Who and Sherlock (if only they produced more than 3 episodes a season)!

With music, I listen to everything from classical and opera, to indie and pop radio, it's really hard for me to list specific artists and composers... too many. I grew up listening to everything like Motown, disco, gospel music, and so on, so I try to stay open minded. Though for musical theatre, I will say my favorite composers are Stephen Sondheim, Adam Guettel, Michael John LaChiusa, and Jason Robert Brown's older material.

Food... I'm a foodie, and always willing to try something new. I cook all kinds myself, but I can get all traditional and whip up a traditional Puerto Rican meal. I also LOVE Thai food and sushi. Momofuku is my food religion.
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order:
-friends/family (my friends have kind of become my family)
-iPhone (music is always playing)
-favorite chef's knife
-glasses or contacts (literally can't do without, I'm kinda blind without them)
-food/water (kinda essential right?)
-a comfy sweater....unless it's summer, then this changes to shorts and a tank top. Especially in the city!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I could try to be profound and say something about contemplating the complexities of life... but I guess for me, I try to think about good things in the future, the things I look forward to? Yeah. :)
On a typical Friday night I am
Really depends on the Friday, and who is involved. On any given Friday I can be found:
-hanging out with friend(s) in a casual environment
-hanging out with friend(s) in a restaurant/bar/club environment
-Spending a night in either alone or with a friend, making dinner, watching movies, drinking wine, and so on.
Really, I'm a homebody at heart, so few things will beat a night in, cooking dinner and watching a movie with someone special, or with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am... a comic book expert. I know, silly right? I have retained a massive amount of useless knowledge concerning the Marvel comics universe and some of the DC universe. Yeah... judge if you like. Haha! Besides that, I'm a pretty open person. Just ask.
You should message me if
If you've gotten this far, you think we might have a lot in common, and that we'll get along really well, why not? Message me and we'll see where it goes.
