My self-summary
Feel free to skip all of this and just message me if you wanna meet up. If the feeling is mutual, I'll make it quite clear. ;)

I love to eat healthy food, take naps, go out dancing, do yoga and go to the beach. I swim on a masters team so I'm pretty much always in the pool. I ski, hike, go trail running, go on camping trips, travel, read, mediate regularly, watch movies, act like a dork and laugh A LOT (see section below about what people usually notice about me), especially at my own stupid jokes. HA! I speak Spanish fluently so if that's your native language, I'm always excited to practice. I'm very close with my family and I'm fortunate to have a job that I love, working in the film industry.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm mainly focusing on my career, staying in shape, spending time with my friends and family and traveling as much as I can.
I’m really good at
laughing, listening, dancing like a crazy person, swimming, learning languages, playing ping-pong, skiing, pitching a tent (ha!), building a campfire, making pancakes, baking banana bread, giving hugs, problem solving, storytelling, film & script analysis, push-ups, and being humble... ;)
The first things people usually notice about me
My loud, fake-sounding laugh and my overgrown beard?

On a typical Friday night I am
ready to chill on the couch and read a book or watch a movie. Now, Saturday nights are a different story… ;)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm terrified of the deep sea... kinda embarrassing since I'm a swimmer. Haha.
You should message me if
...you write the following in your first (or second) message, "Want to meet up?" It's that simple, guys. If you can manage that, I guarantee I'll reply letting you know if I'm interested or not. Let's cut the chit-chat and see if there's any REAL chemistry! :)
