My self-summary
Born by the equator and raised in the Empire City, I hope to always be the type of work-in-progress that makes filling out this box both exciting and challenging at the same time. I'm into complex people, not complicated... complex.

I totally love my biological family, and hope to have my own (chosen) family one day. What that will look like, should be a reflection of what happens when I partner with my man, not a pre-conceived value-laden idea about what should or shouldn't be.

I'm big on urban hiking, and enjoy stopping to read random historical plaques around town.
What I’m doing with my life
doc tv
I’m really good at
seeing through walls
The first things people usually notice about me
If they can see past my character-building deviated septum, hopefully my coffee-brown eyes (being Colombian and all). Eyes tend to be the first thing I notice in a person. Personality-wise, I'm told I have a calming energy.

Six things I could never do without
1. heart (whatever shape it takes: family, friends, lovers, my cat "Miso", kind strangers)
2. media stimulation (music, television, internet)
3. avocado and tomato (I love them equally - so they count as one)
3 1/2. breaded chicken cutlets
4. the possibility for adventure (found in large cities)
5. diversity and cultural fusion
5a. Elders, I love old ladies!
6. Six seems like a random number... so, the sixth is my refusal to play by random institutional rules.
On a typical Friday night I am
home resting after work, sometimes looking for love in all the wrong places and finding trouble in the right places... Okay, Cupid! do your thing.
You should message me if
... first and foremost, you have a big heart and a sense of humor... if you're an open-minded guy with a marked sense of compassion and a strong willingness to be in the present. Those are the fundamentals, though you don't need to be ready-made, just consciously headed in that direction. My weak spot's for sweet guys with rough edges. Smarts and sexiness (most often acquired through self-awareness) are strong pluses - but I guess everyone else would like all those things.
I'm pretty sex positive - so if you have a lot of hang ups about sex - or think a "colorful" sexual history is a turn-off, then we probably won't gel.

... oh, and if listening to Jill Scott's "Long Walk" gives you hope like it does me, I got my shoelaces tied, so let's go!
The two of us
