My self-summary
Once upon a time I was born in Barranquilla, Colombia. I was raised in New York City and eventually made my way out to San Francisco. Now I'm giving LA a go.

My life is a pretty healthy balance of my passions and responsibilities. Variety and contrast in each keep things interesting - getting a lot out of life is what I think keeps me looking, feeling and acting youthful. I'm capable of spending time laughing and enjoying the day, while deftly tending to my obligations. I've been successful in business but am not a workaholic. City-life energizes me and the outdoors soothe me. I find travel fun, yet it's always comforting to return to my own bed. I'm an idealist that loves to think about the world and the way it could be, yet appreciate that the devil is in the details. Science dazzles me, and I'm inspired by creativity and artistic endeavors.

I have few regrets because everything that I've done or that has happened to me has played a part in who I am. And I'm happy with who I am: friendly, easy-going yet accomplished, possessor of a healthy sense of humor, and a pretty freakin' smart Harvard guy. And did I mention modest? Really I am, but I'm thinking I have to sell myself at least a little bit on here.
What I’m doing with my life
Making the most of my time. I've been writing software for a long time, and I'm currently indulging that entrepreneurial streak and have a startup company focused on the entertainment industry.

I also have an interest in acting and have had some success with that.

It's back to that balance thing. I'm fascinated by technology and how it impacts people's lives and can change the world. On the flip side, I love having a creative outlet, which gives me a chance to step away from the computer screen and involves a substantial amount of self-discovery. Acting has helped me learn a lot about myself, while developing a robust sense of empathy for others.
I’m really good at
People always comment on how I give solid, level-headed insights into whatever it is they're going through in their life.

More importantly, I can parallel park like nobody's business, in spaces you can't even imagine.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love movies of all types: Art-house or indie films, dark comedies, intelligent-ish action blow-em-ups, documentaries. The past few years I've successfully watched all the films nominated for the major Oscar categories.

TV has become much more compelling the past few years. I still miss Breaking Bad, but am enjoying Westworld and am looking forward to the new seasons of The Walking Dead, Homeland, Game of Thrones. For comedy, Mom and You're the Worst - funny, biting, and refreshingly original.

One of my favorite pastimes is to eat out. I've learned to cook a little bit, but there are so many great places to dine out, that I can't compete. Chez Hector is on the ropes.

Music-wise, I enjoy various styles, and can tolerate others. Recently I've been listening to a lot of John Legend, the Avett Brothers, Of Monsters and Men, the Black Keys. Recently I've also been doing a lot of karaoke. Which, speaking of tolerance...

As far as reading, I've got my Amazon Kindle loaded up. I want to re-read 100 Years of Solitude and other works by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. We're both Colombian after all. I'm reading the Game of Thrones books, plus finally read the Malcolm Gladwell books - Outliers, Tipping Point, Blink.

Hopefully you
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Wondering where life might take me next, with the knowledge that everything has always turned out completely different than how I had ever imagined it might go.
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday nights I'm usually out with friends, either watching a movie, a play, grabbing dinner or just hanging out chatting over a drink.
You should message me if
What I'm looking for is a special someone to share my time and have fun with. Sense of humor is essential -- you laugh as if your life depended on it. I find creativity and intelligence very sexy. You're someone affectionate, not just physically, but also in sound of your voice and through the look in your eyes. Awareness of the world around you is important, both the silly and the weightier stuff. Ideally, you are someone that likes going to see movies/theatre/music, loves having a romantic dinner in some new, delicious restaurant and enjoys dancing. You enjoy the day and going for a good walk or hike, then heading home for an evening of relaxation. If you're in your twenties you've got a handle on maturity, if you're older you don't say things like "I'm too old to...".
