My self-summary
sometimes i think my life is the most awesome movie no one's ever made!

i was born on the cusp of gemini & taurus & i've always identified with being a person straddling two worlds. i'm new to LA, but have figured out enough to know that i'm part west side, part east side – part hippie, part hipster. part urban, part country boy. my appreciation for fashion & interior design ranges from the eclectic, textural ethnic pattern to clean, modern & stark. i identify with alternative or counter-cultures such as the burning man scene yet i work & thrive in corporate america. i'm part superstar, part monk. my music tastes range from electronica to blue grass to classical, but i'm usually listening to reggae, rock, or kirtan.

i'm mostly vegetarian & hope to make the world a better place, but i don't take myself too seriously. i love witty humor, can be totally sarcastic, am silly, & can be a total dork. i love being inspired by art & nature & people who do cool stuff. mostly i just really love connecting with people & enjoying life!

i've been on a spiritual path that has brought me to a place where i'm content with myself & i know what brings me joy. i also know what triggers my issues – which i look at & continually work to resolve. my partner will be emotionally mature, and have a connection with her spiritual nature. she will be someone i can communicate and share with.

yes, i would love to find a life partner, but i'm also interested in meeting people & making friends. that's usually a good place to start anyways.

i'm interested in someone authentic & down-to-earth yet a dreamer who appreciates the poetic, someone interesting, fun, funny, kind, sensual, adventurous, passionate, yet still. a free spirit but not flakey, someone intelligent & sexy.
What I’m doing with my life
i'm multi-faceted: I have a career in corporate America (VP/creative director at a TV network in-house ad agency), but I also teach yoga, taught karate in NYC before I recently moved to LA, am a reiki practitioner, and am involved in the burning man community. I love to dance, and 5 rhythms dance is a regular practice for me. I love to sing kirtan, and play my harmonium a lot! I try to live consciously and hope to make a positive impact on people and the planet. But all that doing is less important to me than how I'm doing it, and i'm always striving to bring joy & presence into my being. My life is my art & a prayer & a celebration.
I’m really good at
seeing the beauty in things, kissing, figuring out systems, giving massages, making mashed potatoes (OK, cooking in general), solving spacial problems, dancing, snow boarding, sleeping, laughing, listening, advising on personal issues, teaching, asserting myself gracefully, fixing & building stuff (yes, i have power tools & i know how to use them!). i'm pretty balanced between the left brain rational, linear thinking and the right brain emotional, creative intuition. making awesome costumes!
The first things people usually notice about me
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
a small sample: mutant message down under, anything by Osho, Autobiography of a Yogi, Wind-up Bird Chronicle, Brazil (the movie), Rushmore & Bottle Rocket (or anything by Wes Anderson), Bob Marley, the Dead, electronic music, Rolling Stones, Van Morrison, Flaming Lips. i work in TV, but i almost never watch it, except as research. i should really just cancel my cable service...
Six things I could never do without
music, dancing, humor, community, late afternoon sunshine – especially when it shines through green leaves, mashed potatoes.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
spiritual/personal growth stuff, artsy stuff, sexy stuff, food...
On a typical Friday night I am
often laundry, chillin' at home, out for dinner or at a party.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
pretty much anything (i'm pretty practiced at being vulnerable), but not here!
You should message me if
you've got your shit together & you recognize me for how special I am.
