My self-summary
For the traditional stuff - I work in tech. I am a licensed attorney, but day to day most of my work is in corporate databases.

Traveled all over - India, Russia, New Zealand, Iceland and Turkey being some of my memorable locations.

I enjoy spirituality - Daoism/ Buddhism and Shinto tie it all together for me.

I keep my time full and I have a lot of interests ... economics, self-awareness, improving laws, and Chinese medicine as starters.
What I’m doing with my life
Finding edges ... My current work (I tend to be very project based) is wrapping up. Found all those work edges ...
Spirituality and Fatherhood are good to work on.
I do tend to take conversational trips with my friends that can be uncomfortable ... Always with love in my heart, but I love walking into the unexplored. What do you think the biggest problems with government are? How would you handle ISIS? How do you feel about continuing to de-criminalize victimless crimes like prostitution and hard drugs? Have you see what they did in Portugal?
I’m really good at
Spirituality (Eastern religion)
Empathy/ Compassion
The first things people usually notice about me
Tall - 6' 5"
A lot of people describe me as intense, but it must be a slow burn because I don't see it ...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food - fine dining and comfort food like stews and soups ... a good High Tea.
Movies - **Princess Bride**, Quest for the Holy Grail, Aliens.
Shows - The Unit, The Good Wife, **The Wire**, Archer, The Daily Show
Music - Not a big music guy. I listen in the car and rock out to stuff with a beat, but music is mostly an excuse for me to move: Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Depeche Mode, Juno Reactor, Macklemore,, Lady Gaga are some of what I listen to.
Beethoven's 9th and Dvorak New World are both incredible if I want to relaxed and inspired.
Books - I read like crazy. Guilty pleasures are sci-fi and pulpy spy novels. Otherwise it is stuff like economics, dzogchen, mahamudra, theories of identify in the context of litigation...
Six things I could never do without
I am pretty low need when push comes to shove. I consider retreating for the world and living inthe wilderness sometimes, but I do enjoy life's comforts.
So to give some insight.
Computer (work), Sencha (tea), crock pot (meals), friends, internet (work), a nice comfortable bed.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Not thinking :-) - Non conceptual meditation.

Just being present. Being aware. Posture. Being relaxed. Being centered.

My experience is if you keep centered the rest of life takes care of itself (and no, it doesn't always go well, and being present is often the best response .... IMO.. and sometimes you end up with some good stories!)
On a typical Friday night I am
50% - With kids watching a movie or going for a walk.
50% - Hang with friends over good food or go out dancing ... occasionally take a long weekend somewhere fun.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I went skydiving I thought I would be cool (to deal with the fear) to yell when I jumped. "Woo-Hoo" and "Geronimo"
According to the people on the ground it just sounded like I was screaming my head off in fear.
You should message me if
You are not in a rush to have baby or settle down ... after my marriage I am in rush to jump into another relationship unless I am confident it will work.

Also if you have some interests in travel, politics or alternative religion - makes for interesting conversation at the least.
The two of us
