I’m really good at
Friendly with most all; I have limits.

Susceptible to flattery.

Playful banter.

Being exposed. Being inspired.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm told "the people" appreciate my welcoming personality.***
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like cooking. Mmmm, foooood. I eat everything. Except you my purple not-friend, Mr Eggplant.

I'm huge history lover when it comes to watching and reading. Aware and have opines of international and domestic happenings.

Always something in the reading rotation. Some all time favs: Shogun Saga. Count of Monte Cristo. Game of Thrones. The Alchemist. Dracula. Into Thin Air. Shadow Divers. Devil in a white city.

Love music, see a ton of it live and the genres run the gamut. A few videos below I dig (the songs are strong too):

Sebastien Tellier - La Ritournelle:

The Foals - My Number:

Lee Fields - Faithful Man:

Joe Driscoll & Sekou Kouyate - Wonamati:

EODM - I want you so hard:

Bon Iver - Skinny Love (Live at The Greek Berkeley):
Six things I could never do without
Six? Cool. Here goes:
1. The spirit of people around the world.
2. Music and the dance floor.
3. Camera ( with my fish-eye).
4. Ghost stories.
5. Exploring History.
6. Possibilities. Friendship (includes Family - duh). Expression. Creativity. Love. Touch. Hope. Collaborations.
14. Toes in the sand. Hammocks in the shade. Snow in my beard.
17. Rivers, lakes, oceans, mountains - oh my!
21. Kitchens or places to cook

Per se.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Remembering the past, staying present in the moment and embracing the future.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing something typical; you know, like, typical things people do on a Friday.
You should message me if
You made it to this section!

You believe in the Mark Manson philosophy of F* Yes or F* No (ask googles).

You'll never want my jeans skinnier than yours, unless, of course, it's Halloween.

You agree it is all about chemistry.

Clarifications from zee author:

*Textlation (tekst-ley-shuhn): the misinterpretation of digital text communication where playfulness and humor are lost in translation due to lack of tone, inflection, facial expressions, eye brow raises and Dr. Evil style pinky raises by the author.

**Stars are just like us!
They drink coffee, go to the park, fly on airplanes and eat food? Oh. My. Gawd! Who knew? I always wondered. I love playful banter which has led me to working on creating the world's first sarcasm font. It’s gonna be huge. HUGE I say :-P

***According to studies, my personality is:
Open-minded: curious and complex;
Conscientiousness: reliable and disciplined;
Extroverted: fun loving and sociable;
Agreeable: sympathetic and courteous;
Non-neurotic: calm, relaxed and secure.
The two of us
