My self-summary
I'm an easy going guy with an affinity for the arts, sports, and vegetarian food. I just finished law school, practice martial arts (capoeira) and teach gymnastics. I'm looking to meet people; friends, dates, or anyone else to experience Miami with.

I flip, I dance, i thrift, I cook, I'm educated, I teach, I read, i rock, I'm often ridiculous, I play afro brazilian instruments, I have been greatly influenced by the people around me, and I love travel.

I have traveled the east coast and hope to travel the rest of the U.S. I spent a summer doing trial prep work for an attorney in Ghana. I've spent time teaching English in a rural part of Costa Rica. I have also spent a summer in Volograd studying the Russian criminal justice system. Last year I spent 7 months studying law and traveling in China 我是重庆人!

I grew up in Miami, went to undergrad in Orlando, and decided to move a thousand miles from anything i know and love to sunny Cleveland for law school. I'll do just about anything for the story.

I'm an open book if you want to know something more just ask.

I am athletic, confident, and an idealist
What I’m doing with my life
I just got to Miami after living in Brazil for the last three months. I just finished school and passed the bar exam. After that I road tripped through the East Coast and moved to Brazil for a spell. Nothing quite like good people all over the place to make the world feel like home. I also just received my first teaching level in my martial art. Other than that I'm looking for jobs all over the world to help with judicial access. So summed up I am back home for the holidays, adventuring, teaching capoeira and gymnastics.
I’m really good at
whatever I try; except that which I am not good at it.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I smiled at them (used to be the mohawk or mustache and sometimes they make come backs).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Steppenwolf Hermann Hesse, Naked Lunch William Burroughs, The Trial Franz Kafka, Player Piano Kurt Vonnegut, 1984 George Orwell, Fight Club Chuck Palahniuk, and books of similar ilk (I read a lot).

Movies: Anything with the word "Dead" in the title. Kung fu movies. Tarantino Movies. Horror flicks. Dumb comedies (step brothers, hot rod...) I will watch anything.

Music: Bob Dylan, Andre 3000, Big Boi, G Love, Gillian Welch, Avett Brothers, Mumford and Sons, The Smiths, Mars Volta, Franz Ferdinand, David Bowie, Daft Punk, Elliot Smith, Sea Wolf, Gorillaz, James Brown, Curtis Mayfield, Erykah Badu, Serj Tankian, Rise Against, Mestre Acordeon, Nina Simone, Mos Def, Bob Marley, Sizzla, Capleton, the list goes on...

Food: I'm a vegetarian, I eat a ton of weird stuff and I bet I eat spicier food than you.
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Capoeira, I love the challenge it presents both mentally and physically (plus it makes me learn songs in Portuguese). When I have the time I like to plan a challenging meal. When school is in session I spend a lot time thinking about how to get my mind off of law school. In turn I also like to get lost in the moment. Also why didn't Lo Pan just hit the personals for a green eyed girl?
On a typical Friday night I am
saving kangaroos, fighting kangaroos, being a ninja, fighting a ninja, being a law student, fighting a law student, being evil, fighting evil, being good, fighting good, being a capoeirista, fighting a capoeirista, being a philosopher, fighting a philosopher, being a drunk, fighting a drunk, being a law abiding citizen, fighting a law abiding citizen, saving nature, fighting nature, being a chef, fighting a chef, being a zombie, fighting a zombie, saving art and fighting art! All or none of this may happen on Friday; I will also probably finish work and chill with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nothing is private, what do you want me to say? I'm a dancing drunk? I've been fighting the urge to sprinkle in Ghostbusters quotes throughout my profile? I am the keymaster?
You should message me if
You think you're as awesome as me. Or if you caught the Big Trouble in Little China reference.
