My self-summary
I am a spontaneous passionate man and I Love to experience everything Life has to offer. I recently moved back to NJ after ten years in LA and year in Tulum, Mexico. I Love meeting new people and having new experiences. My tastes vary greatly; I Love getting suited up, going to the opera and philosophizing or throwing on jeans and a t-shirt at a dive bar (though I don't drink) with some rock 'n' roll blaring. Much how Shakespeare ranges from the most mellifluous of matters to the darkest of macabre, I like to appreciate the finer things in Life one evening but then the very next night enjoy a course of a coarser nature.

I was raised by two women (my sister and my mother) so I grew up learning to respect women and be very open with my emotions- but caveat emptor- I'm no softee- I stand and fight to the death for what I believe in (Viva La Revolucion!) I believe a real man is strong but knows that vulnerability is a strength- not a weakness. It is much harder to open yourself up and be honest than it is to put up walls and defenses. I've been doing tremendous work on myself after the most difficult year of my Life. I believe in Truth (even though it isn't always pretty) and open communication- but, again- please don't confuse me with a good boy; I got a bit of the rebel in me...ok, a lot of the rebel in me. (Once more unto the lameness, dear friends) (I, also, just realized that I have quite a proclivity for parenthetical phrases...and alliteration).

I loathe judgment and ignorance. (Although, I oft times find myself judging those who judge others- damn those catch 22's stooping me in ignorance) I am a very spiritual person but I, myself, cannot support organized religion. "Do as you will and harm none" shows a bit of my feelings on that iceberg. I was gonna join a monastery 14 years ago but instead jumped into sex drugs and rock n roll- touring as a musician for years. Now, I'm quite the opposite- I don't drink, smoke or eat any animal products.

I enjoy being active- I teach yoga (recently led a retreat to St. John), hike, snowboard, surf (not well at all :-/ ), run and so on.

My standards are very high and I am very picky with women. It takes more than just a nice body to turn me on (I'll take that too ;-) but intellect, wit, confidence, self awareness and a gorgeous smile excite me. Nothin' in the world like a woman with a good sense of humor that doesn't take herself too seriously- I'm a total goofball at times. But there are times to be serious and times to let it rip- knowing the difference is the nuance of Life. I can be as fine as 360 grit sandpaper but as rough as 40 grit. I come with a caveat: Not for the faint of heart. Being easily offended is the only thing offensive to me! Oh, and this is a perfect time to say- please don't be afraid of your sexuality- embrace it healthily. There's too much fun and enlightenment to be had...

Wow, I don't think I left anything for you to ask. You didn't actually read all that did ya? Any more questions?
What I’m doing with my life
I am a filmmaker and have started my own company Truth Be Shone Films where I write, produce, direct, shoot, and edit content. Anything from artistic content to commercial and promotional content for businesses or events. I am still building the business and I also teach yoga and play music.

My goals and aspirations are quite lofty but grounded in reality. As a writer (are you surprised?) I am working on several screenplays and have written, produced and directed my own play called Cirque de Lumiere (or Everyman's Apocalypse) that parallels the Book of Revelation, but not in the literal end of the world sense but the end of the world as we know it as we ascend into higher levels of consciousness. It sounds heavy, but it's a bunch of clowns running around speaking in Iambic Pentameter :-)

As a bass player I have had three record contracts (the last of which was with Capitol Records) and toured arenas with the bands Catch 22, Streetlight Manifesto and HURT. Ultimately, I am working towards making my own films (I wanna travel the world making films- so I'm going to Cozumel to make the next one- after that...?)
I’m really good at
Is this where I bloviate? I hope there is enough room in this little box. Let's see- I'm good at talking about myself! Ha! Ok, seriously-

The first things people usually notice about me
You tell me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books- Shakespeare's Complete Works, Oscar Wilde, Bluebeard, Dune, Life of Pi, The Kite Runner, Lord of the Rings, A Tale of Two Cities, Christ Consciousness, Autobiography of a Yogi. Confession: I'm a fantasy dork.

Movies- The Last Temptation of Christ, Just Friends, City of God, Big Fish (basically all Tim Burton, sans Planet of the Apes), Labyrinth, Jackie Chan, Zoolander, Life Is Beautiful, Swing Kids, The Princess Bride and on and on and on...

T.V.- Battlestar Galactica, Game of Thrones, Sons of Anarchy, Bored to Death, How I Met Your Mother, Firefly, So You Think You Can Dance

My musical tastes run the gamut pretty well. Classical Music (Tchaikovsky) and rock are my favorites but I listen to everything (yeah, I know, they all say that) but most people would have a difficult time with my ipod on shuffle. My tastes range from Bare Naked Ladies to Slipknot- from Mozart to Sarah Mclachlan- from jazz to showtunes- from Busta to...you get the point. As a bass player rock is my forte.

Food- I Love it. I Love to cook it (still learning). I Love to eat it. I Love to play with it. Hehehe. Though now I am vegan so I am learning to cook without people choking :-)
Six things I could never do without
Shakespeare, Garlic, Passion, A Beautiful Smile, Love, Music, Osculation, Copulation

8- I don't like limits.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Spiritual transcendence, traveling, being of service...
On a typical Friday night I am
What is this word 'typical?' ;-) Actually I'm usually at a 12 step meeting, a yoga class or a spiritual lecture :-)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Is certainly not going to be written in this little box for all to see!
You should message me if
you're ready ;-)
