My self-summary
I'm a single father, dedicated to my wonderful son.

I have fond memories of sitting in my living room with my family waiting for the WORLD PREMIER of Michael Jackson's Thriller video. When he burned his head during a Pepsi commercial I cried.

Even though I don't have a television I miss watching, "Threes Company" and "MacGyver". I still own two turntables and listen to music the way we did when I was a child. Vinyl is important to me like books.

During the 90's I spent time learning from and becoming humbled by my experiences in Zapatista communities in Southern Mexico. The EZLN is a important part of my life.

I enjoy simple things like a good cup of coffee or tea, browsing through used books, fixing or making things, clean sheets, constant music playing, people watching and going for walks.
What I’m doing with my life
Most all my energy is put into raising my son. I moved from one state to another to have a quality relationship with my child. That is what I am doing with my life right now.

Currently a contract worker for Oakland Unified.

Using a solder gun, playing major and minor scales on my guitar, general maintenance on my vehicle, house repairs, cooking my own meals and smashing the system.

On a typical Friday night I am
Spending time with my lil guy, watching a cartoon or playing legos.

When I don't have my child on a Friday night I might be at home with a movie and dinner or out doing a gallery walk, attending a community event or chilling at a cafe!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love licorice and listen to Billy Ocean.
You should message me if
You have a open mind to leftist politics, enjoy book stores, are down for walks and chatting, and are a stable adult of color. You won't meet my son right away but if my being a parent is a issue for you then you should probably just leave my page now!
