My self-summary
When I was a 9 years old I used to play a game with my friends called "Anything Team." It was called this because we could be anything/anybody that we could imagine. I was the strongest man, my brother was the richest man and our friend was the fastest. We would save the world from evil doers and always get the girl.

What has stayed with me 24 years later is the belief that we can always reinvent ourselves and each of us can make a difference in the world.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in technology for a company in midtown. I advise a nonprofit and entrepreneurs at a business incubator. I do a lot of public speaking on topics like fundraising, technology and entrepreneurship. I occasionally write articles about social media/tech/charity that get published places.
I’m really good at
Dancing. Spelunking. Meeting people on the bus/subway. Having deep conversation with strangers, or on a first date.

Give me a laptop, dental floss, a box of special K, a slinky and a swiss army knife and I will break out of a prison.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
gym/more sleep? where can I find my next coffee? The meaning of life, the universe and everything (reference anyone)? am I going to make that subway that is arriving now (I usually do)?
On a typical Friday night I am
I take a 3 hour hip hop dance class every Friday. I know... You look at me and you think "he definitely fits the stereotypical hip hop dancer."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I am inspired by the music that I am listening to... I sometimes surreptitiously dance on subway platforms.
You should message me if
You are overall a positive and optimistic person.

You are compassionate towards others.

You are comfortable being a sensual woman.

You are not afraid of speaking your mind. Communication is the heart of a successful relationship. I am pretty intuitive, but I haven't mastered mind reading yet :)

Bonus points if you are intellectual, artistically talented, or you want to change the world, or feel it is important to give back.
