I'm orignially from Miami, FL and moved out to LA a few years ago to try the whole entertainment thing because of my love for movies. It just wasn't a fit, however, and I think working with kids was always what I was supposed to be doing. Now, I couldn't imagine myself doing anything else. I work at a school for kids with autism and coach football at a different school. I wish I could say it's like Friday Night Lights, but it's not, haha. But I do feel very lucky to have found something I get to do that combines my passion for teaching with my love of sports. I'm a pretty laid back, easy going guy that likes to keep the mood light. If there's tension in the room, I'm the guy that makes a joke to loosen things up. As I've already said, I love sports, and being from Miami I am a big Dolphins, Heat, Marlins, and Panthers fan. I also really enjoy playing different kinds of sports and would love to find someone who could introduce me to a new one. I enjoy finding new music and will give just about any genre a try. In my ipod you can find anything from the Beach Boys, to Dierks Bentley, to the Black Keys. I love to travel and have been all over the world from Australia to Turkey. One of my favorite parts about living in LA is there are so many great places that are close that you can take mini vacations to. In my free time, I also love to watch movies and television. Most of my favorite movies are quirky comedies like The Big Lebowski and The Royal Tenenbaums, and my friends tend to make fun of the fact that I have been known to watch my share of romantic comedies (I have no problem defending Love Actually at any time), but my all time favorite is The Godfather. As for TV, I can't get enough of Game of Thrones, and I also really like Community and New Girl. Family is very important to me. I have a big, but very close family, and I really enjoy the time I get to spend with them when I'm back in Miami and on family vacations. I'm looking for someone that doesn't take themselves too serious and can have a good time in all kinds of settings. Someone who I can make laugh and also be able to have great conversations with. Someone who when we're together, we can just make each other happy. I'm also a sucker for a great smile.
