I'm originally from Philly but have lived in LA since 1999. When I moved out here, all I had was $500.00 and I have made a great life for myself and I Love it! I work in the hospitality industry, facilitating food & beverage and culinary trainings for hotels and restaurants. I have a culinary degree and cooked professionally for 6 years and even though I teach now, I still love to cook at home for friends and family.
I have 2 gold metals in martial arts and really enjoying self defense. I love working out, hiking being out side and feeling peaceful. I am also very much into interior design and love doing home improvement projects. I studied American Sign Language for 2 years and want to eventually get my degree in ASL. I am planing on being fluent in Spanish one day as well.
I go to church and love God, He is first in my life but I am very opened minded about all types of people and faiths. I don't want to be judged so I don't judge.
Just started my own production company and that is my baby that I am nurturing and growing. I'm a writer as well and joke around a lot so don't take what I may say too personal.
I have a deep love for music (all types) and musical Theater is a real joy to my soul.
I love my family and friends and when I love you, it's real and unconditional.
I've met a few players and freaks here in match so if that's what you're about, please don't waste my time.
I am looking for a strong friendship that could lead to a long term relationship or even marriage one day. I was in a 9 year relationship that I walked away from a year and a half ago. I do not date more than one person at a time so if I like you after our connection, I will hide my profile so that I can give you my full attention without distractions.
I love to look at and read people's profiles and I look at a few important things....#1 Your Religious Values...it's good to believe in something #2 If you have children #3 What ethnicity you are interested in dating...don't just go out with me because you're curios about black women and #4 Your pictures...to see if you take half nude pictures of yourself in your bathroom mirror (turn off) and if you hang out with people that are different from you....because I do and have all different types of friends with all different types of backgrounds.
And gentlemen, thank you for your interest but please understand that if you have children, that's not what I am looking for in my life right now but I do appreciate you and wish you the very best on your search.
I work and support myself so I am not looking for money or financial support.
Last ...I have locks...I love my natural hair...no I don't want to cut them off or have straight hair....God made me perfect...but Thanks for asking.
I don't like BS and I don't give it....who's up to bat?
