Some fun facts about me:
-I like to cook, more importantly I like to cook for other people. It has been awhile since I last entertained but I absolutely dig creating a space for people to gather, connect and share good food and atmosphere.
-My favorite activity growing up was riding horses. More specifically I rode dressage until I was 13-14yrs old, even competed a few times. Eventually, adolescence pulled me away, but I continued to ride during the summers through high school. Yeehaw!
-I’m a glass half full kind of guy. Pessimism does not make sense to me, there’s always something positive to take from any situation.
-I like to explore/travel. Be it in the city, outdoors or in a museum, especially in new places or foreign countries. I love the feeling of being in a new environment and out of my comfort zone...AKA the Boulder bubble!
-Water, large bodies of water especially. The ocean totally does it for me, there’s such power and humbling vastness there, yet it’s so soothing. I really enjoy the aspects of water, but I'm not afraid of heights if you know what I mean. Being by the sea; it’s like I've come home.
-I’m an artist and designer with the hankering to be a teacher: photography, painting, fabricating, drawing…music, architecture and art move me. Figuring out the details of a problem is fun, experiencing the end result is satisfying. I think the experience of standing in a well designed space is synonymous with hearing a good piece of music; there’s an innate emotionally satisfying quality and a sense of order and familiarity within. Music is liberating in it"s ability to bring pause, focus, healing and movement to the body when needed. Music is just essential.
My biggest Hope is – To guide my daughter by example in living my life to its fullest, achieving my best potential while leaving something enjoyable behind for others; to be a selfless loving Father to her
My biggest fear is – the poignant thought of failure by letting fear rule my life.
What makes me most happy - The outdoors, family and friends coming together and finding a true connection with someone. I honestly care about people, especially those close to me. Getting together and sharing in each other’s lives thuthfuly is very fulfilling. Contributing in this way tempers my ego and
Something I would like to change in my life is – I have an incessant memory, which is a great quality, but can be self defeating in its habit of tying me to my past. I want to be more diligent with myself in presiding in the present moment and developing more fortitude in my ability to start down a path without knowing the outcome. Life is about the journey and the experiences and trails along the way. If we stop short because of reluctance due to past experiences we're hindering our own growth.
Last but not least: Sun in Cancer/Venus in Cancer....and I'm a dragon : )
