My self-summary
I'm originally from Los Angeles (born and raised) and most recently lived in the SF Bay Area prior to moving to NYC about a year and a half ago to get my masters degree. I'm loving exploring the city, the great food, and the plentiful theatre and always welcome fun folks to do that with.

I'm an easy going guy and I take life as it comes. Its pretty hard to shock or phase me. I'm open to new things, new people and new experiences. I've been told that I'm old for my age and its probably true, but I still think there's a lot I don't know about the world or myself. I'm casual and laid back but enjoy a night on the town, fully gussied up, as well.

I'm looking for good people to partake in the adventure we call life. I love having lots of friends and I hope to find a special someone to share this all with. Maybe its you?

In the meantime I'm having a lot of fun answering questions on here, chatting with new folks, and discovering just what OkCupid really is.

Some things I enjoy include camping, hiking, food, cooking, treasure hunts, Karaoke, theater, dancing, music, volleyball, laughing till it hurts, cuddling, sappy movies, sleeping, working with children, learning, movies, roller coasters, fighting the good fight, the beach, traveling, Paris, Israel and thunderstorms just to name a few.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a do-gooder, and I probably always will be. I completed grad school this past May at NYU Wagner where I received my Masters in Public Administration. I work for an arts access organization bringing the arts to communities that might not otherwise have access to them. Otherwise just trying to enjoy life, hang out with friends new and old and take in all the experiences that I can.
I’m really good at
Kissing, or so I've been told ;)

Finding great deals on theater tickets

Being a friend
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile. Since I was very young the nickname smiley has been aptly placed.

My kind, friendly nature.

My political viewpoints, it doesn't take to long to get at least a few.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not a very private person, so really, just ask.
You should message me if
You're a kind-hearted soul looking for a connection (plutonic or romantic) in this crazy disconnected world of ours.

You want to get offline and meet in person.
