My self-summary
I’m a good guy who happens to like lists. Here are a few things you should know about me / that might interest you:

1. I grew up in NJ (and sometimes the Jersey comes out) but am a dual citizen of Spain and the USA.
2. Caring for and being there for my friends, family and loved ones is very important to me. They know they always have a listening ear and a helping hand in me when they need one.
3. The ability to see the humor in most things comes naturally to me. I have a great silver-lining detector. (My gaydar, on the other hand, could use some recalibration).
4. I thrive in social settings and can be fairly outgoing. I am always up for meeting new people, and I know how to make newcomers feel welcome and at ease.
5. I’m known as a fixer. Button to sew on...done. Email to craft...finished.. Interview to prep for...home-run. If you are a breaker, I’m horrible with a glue gun but I can help you pick up the pieces.
6. I can grow a mean beard, but am clean shaven most of the time.
7. Family is important to me and I hope to start one of my own someday
8. I enjoy a good drink (whiskey? yes please), great food, and even better company.
9. Soggy cereal and the cold side of the pillow..sometimes it’s the simple things in life :-)
10. While not old-fashioned, I still mind my manners: please and thank you.
What I’m doing with my life
Working at an education non-profit, directing the parent and student education/support programs for the region. Hoping that my day-to-day activities help to increase college access for the students I the very least that they learn that hats are not to be worn indoors. :-) Strongly considering going back to school for my MPA. Also...enjoying time with family and friends and making the most of my weekends.
I’m really good at
1. Making People Laugh
2. Making Myself Laugh
3. Listening
4. Reading other people's emotions
The first things people usually notice about me
1. The fact that I smile a lot
2. If I am not smiling...probably my eyelashes...

Discovering new places to eat and thinking about trips I will take. And always..the next long weekend trip.
On a typical Friday night I am
Depending on how crazy the week was..I am either out and about or enjoying a quiet night in.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was little, I thought there was a different right sock and left sock. Every morning when getting dressed for school I would consult my parents and was blown away by their ability to know which sock was for which foot. Luckily I grew out of this.
You should message me if
If you are interested in grabbing a drink and getting to know each other.
The two of us
