ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

My earliest memory is of my parents buying a new refrigerator when I was three. As a small child I didn't like Winnie the Pooh because I felt bad for Eeyore--I thought he was suffering chronic pain from the pin holding up his tail. I was student body treasurer in the fifth grade. In the seventh grade...oh, is this not what's meant by "About Me"?
Well, then, I'm a kind, compassionate guy with a sharp sense of humor and a knack for cooking up killer meals for large groups. I'm fluent in Portuguese, proficient in Spanish, somewhat ok in Italian, kind of able to pick out words in Arabic, and always aspiring to learn more. My mother speaks French but didn't teach it to my brother and me because it was the official language of keeping secrets from us. Therefore, in my mind, French is the language of grownups, by which measure I am not yet a grownup.
I've been fortunate to have traveled quite a bit, and most of my photos are travel shots mainly because that's the only time I really take pictures. I recently moved back to southern California after spending a short stint in New York City conducting dissertation research. I've essentially been reading old journals for the past two months.
I'm looking for someone who's open to new experiences (culinary, cultural, intellectual, physical, etc.); someone who can maintain an interesting conversation and is comfortable in varied situations.

Interests:
Camping, Coffee and conversation, Cooking, Dining out, Museums and art, Music and concerts, Exploring new areas, Nightclubs/Dancing, Performing arts, Political interests, Volunteering, Wine tasting
Sports & exercise:
Basketball, Bowling, Football, Soccer, Swimming, Weights / Machines, Other types of exercise, Hockey
Exercise habits:
I exercise 3-4 times per week
Pets:
Pet Essay:

I like cats and horses sort of abstractly, since I've never actually had either. I definitely miss having a dog, though.

Political views:
Very Liberal
Sign:
Scorpio
College:
I'll tell you later
For fun:

Travel, food and drink, getting out in nature, music and dancing (although I've grown to kind of dislike big concerts as well as overcrowded clubs and bars), reading (even though it's my job).

Favorite hot spots:

Terceira, Portugal, where my family's from, is first and I miss it constantly. The Nile delta towns are close to my heart. I fell in love with Marrakech, Chefchaouen, Granada, Rome, Bologna, and Florence. Then of course NYC, SF, LA, Philly, Taos, NM.

Favorite things:

Literature, music, lively conversation, fava beans, coffee, Belgian ales, red wines, my grandmother, etc. The usual.

Last read:

I read something new almost everyday. I'm not going to update this everyday. Let's go with Moby-Dick because it's important to me.
