My self-summary
I decided to ask around about myself and it seems I'm a pretty nice guy. A bit obsessive but that's my Leo side being passionate. Funny, though not everyone gets my sense of humor. Easy going, though not a push-over.

I can hold a conversation on just about anything! OK, most of the time I just BS my way through more complex astrophysics, but I can hold my own on molecular gastronomy. I can make most people laugh, often at my own expense, but laughter is my drug.

I just want to have a good time. If that entails a food truck run, a Dodger game, a cruise, a walk on the pier, an art exhibit, a carnival (though if you can get me on a ferris wheel, you are very special!), an impromptu poker tournament, a dinner murder mystery, a bar fight, laundry, juggling, handstands, running from derelicts, I'm up for anything.

I'm looking for a partner in the truest sense of the word. I'll do the dirty work, you just keep the car running and make sure you know the escape route. I'll have the band-aids ready after you wrestle that bear. I'll look for loose change if you want that penny souvenir.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an educator. I work as a substitute teacher for LAUSD schools in the LA area. I also work as an Education Specialist at the Los Angeles Zoo. I'm a degenerate gambler. Ex-aspiring actor but full-time ham......
I’m really good at
I'm a bit of a chameleon. I pride myself in being able to have a conversation with anyone. I can work my way into any conversation.
The first things people usually notice about me
My winning smile and dashing eyes and long eyelashes.... And right now, I have a Dali-esque mustache.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why you haven't contacted me if you've gotten this far?
On a typical Friday night I am
At a poker table, chasing a food truck, drinking, or watching a documentary on alcoholic poker players who over-eat .....
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a helluva lot smarter than I look, or let on.

I shed tears easily.

You just want a good time with a good guy
