Starting w/what I likez:
burning holes in the dance floor...
...be it stomping out native rythms on the boat docks of foreign waters, learning to twirl about in dirty lil salsa clubs, rubbing elbows w/ the social stratosphere of LA rooftop parties, kicking up some dust on the playa or just simply dancing to Motown on my kitchen linoleum on a Sunday morning it's all good...
I also find myself very fond of:
painting live for various LA galleries/clubs
kicking ass at scrabble
MMA fighting...not watching
making up words (but not at scrabble)
homemade waffles on Sunday morning
throwing pottery on a wheel
kundalini & ashtanga yoga
surfing in foreign countries
nightdiving for lobsters
quirky movies with subtitles
other peoples kittens
mischief & shenanigans
As a side note I'm a pretty awesome half-time father. We are fully house broken, cook, clean and even have a small garden. As much as I love kids Im not interested in propagating my genes any further (despite a few odd requests) and have even taken the secure measure of being snipped...nor am I looking for a Mary Poppins type figure but simply someone who is respectful of my family time and the priority my children play in my life:)
If this all seems to vibe with you I'm sure well get along just swell.
Update because it seems to be a deal breaker... I do know the difference between:
Were, we're, where & they're, their & there but I might purposely misuse them just to rattle your cage a lil;)
I own my own indoor swim school complete with 11 instructors and 2 office staff. Im not afraid to brag about this because I started with nothing but a stolen milk crate and barely a Highschool diploma. Intergrity, ingenuity and perseverance has led me to where I'm at now and I love turning my intentions into reality (and the silly lil quantum theory of collapsing all other probable universes into the one I chose to observe is pretty cool too;) In short I love my job.
In Navajo we have a phase "Hózhó Nasádo" which translates as "Walk in Beauty" and I continue to practice consciously being grateful for everyday and the miles ahead of me...
Seriously. I can't count the times I've run into randy moms at the grocery store, restaurants, the park etc. who know me from teaching swim lessons and have only seen me in pool attire.

I am one of those hypocrites that choose not to own a t.v. but pirate shows like walking dead & game of thrones before they air in pacific time... from time to time...
This one time a lil kid told me he didn't like pizza...
