My self-summary
I'm in a big transitory period of my life and everything seems to be working out for the better, no matter how big the challenge is that I'm facing the right tools are there at my disposal. I'm in a very positive place as a result of the obstacles I have surmounted, and feel I have taken a big step forward spiritually.

As far as more about me in general I am something of a renaissance man with music, philosophy, tarot, numerology, and poetry as my main artistic endeavors. But definitely playing drums (kit) is at the top. Oh and I play Ultimate frisbee at least once a week religiously. It gives you a great workout, especially if you play with reckless abandon (yes I do).

Just quit my full-time job as an outside sales director for a dental franchise in the South Bay to be a full -time recruiter/driver consultant for Uber. I'm excited about working for Uber because I believe it makes the roads safer, e.g. less drinking and driving and less cars on the road in general. I was granted the flexibility to create and implement my own recruitment and training strategy that I'm going to be debuting towards the end of July '16.
What I’m doing with my life
In the last five plus years because of the work I have been doing (outside sales and lead generation in the dental and solar industry, and before that campaigning and fundraising for an environmental justice non-profit) I have become a much more outgoing person. Since my job often involves initiating conversations with complete strangers it comes as no surprise that I can easily start a conversation with almost anyone now, though setting (like at a loud bar) is certainly a factor. So I am more extroverted most of the time though I can still be introverted and be content just doing my own thing.
I’m really good at
Overcoming problems by trusting my intuitive and analytical abilites. I've always had the analytical side active but recently my intution has been better than it's ever been.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm comfortable in my own skin and that I'm my own person naturally and without effort most of the time. I wasn't always like that, it took years of hard work to get to that place.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
LOTR books and movies, Donnie Darko, Blade Runner, Apocalypse Now, Alien, though none of his movies are in my top 5 I think Stanley Kubrick was the best director ever, Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, Carnivale (worst pre-empt ever), The Sopranos, House of Cards, Mad Men, currently I'm hooked on Fringe (J.J. Abrams other extended tv series that no one seems to have any fucking clue about and is 10x better than LOST) anything Aleister Crowley (the most misunderstood man of the 20th century), Dale Pendell (the Pharmacoepia series), Wallace Stevens, Pablo Neruda, Sharon Olds, my sister's stuff (she in an up-and-coming poet in NYC), TOOL, Rush, Yes, Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Radiohead, Aphex Twin, Portishead, Dream Theater, Dead Can Dance, vegetarian Indian food.
The six things I could never do without
My hands (for drums and Ultimate and massages)
My wits
My enthusiasm (think of the Greek word ethos)
My originality (don't mean to be arrogant, but all artists would like to think that they have something new to contribute to their genre(s)
My weekly or if I have the time bi-weekly Ultimate frisbee game
Trusting myself above anyone else (but thank you friends and sister for when I need the support).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Physics, Tarot cards, underlying principles of the universe, musical ideas, weather phenomenon, the possiblity of non-being, the permeatation of numbers in all of physical reality, the nature of Spirit and how everything is connected (ex. The Jeweled Net of Indra).
On a typical Friday night I am
Getting off work and seeing what my friends are up to. Sometimes driving up to SF sometimes staying in the South Bay.
Maybe going to the gym though that is likely on several other days.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not a flesh-eating zombie.
You should message me if
You're into looking at and improving the positive things about your life more and are good at overcoming rather than dwelling on negativity. You know how to enjoy yourself and others and are open to warming up to someone quickly if the right chemistry is there.

Some people say that I come off looking a little conservative in my photos but nothing is further from the truth, both politically and idealistically. But because I'm in sales my freakishness has to lurk beneath the surface, so alas, no long hair for this rock star.

I would say if you aren't passionate about art and/or some type or spirituality then we might not have a lot in common. It's more about the passion than the similarities, but if for example "heavy" music sends you shrieking into the night then our personalities may be too dissimilar. I have spent a lot of time writing my profile and answering questions and taking bizarre pseudo-scientific tests to help myself and you determine if we would have a good time meeting up; but it's worth the effort to help avoid bad dates and have good to great dates! Though epically bad dates can have some shock value and be shared and laughed about on good dates ;)
