ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

How to encapsulate 33 years of experience in such an abbreviated format? Beautiful, complex, and mystifying encounters that must now be aggregated and condensed into a bite-sized nugget of information. Fortunately, I have yet to meet a challenge I haven't savored and learned from! For this particular one, Ill let my favorite poets - Okyo - take the lead. Of the many works of his that I carry with me on my journeys, the following is what most deeply touches my soul:

This phantasm
Of falling petals vanishes into
Moon and flower

The sum of my world has been imprinted into those few delicate and hauntingly captivating lines. Though brief, they manage to ground all my life to the farm in Sweden where I was born; providing a uniforming and consistent intimacy to events that may otherwise seem chaotic, disconnected, and random. Having said that, lets start there.

I'm from a small village where I lived until my dad's job took him to Kenya. Though I moved around a lot, most of my life was spent in Texas where I went to high school then on to UT for my undergrad and grad degrees. Though I've always been a nerd, originally a financial nerd but now a chemistry nerd, I was also big into sports. Being Texas, football was what I ended up gravitating to and excelling in; enough so that I walked on at UT! HOOK'EM HORNS! Sorry, had to do it. It's a law punishable by death through the forcible listening to of Rick Perry presidential campaign speeches. After an incredible university experience, I graduated with degrees in finance and marketing but knew it wasn't for me. I was fortunate enough, after 6 months of 13 hour days writing endless reports about restaurants, to stumble into teaching. I fell in love with it because of the impact I have on kids who desperately need positivity in their lives. I know, I'm one of those annoyingly lucky douchebags that doesn't actually work for a living.

That should suffice for the obligatory, you're sure you're not an alien baby stuff; now for the fun part! Being a teacher and Swede, it's probably obvious but if not: people and nature are my passions! This is why LA is so amazing to me! I'm up at 4 everyday because I'm so excited to experience it all. While others sleep, I'm feeling the power of inky black waves propelling me towards the waiting sand, or watching from far atop the Palisades as the sun paints the eastern sky with colors that would've been unimaginable to even Van Goh, or, on a quieter day, being schooled by legends at the Mecca of Bodybuilding. All this before my first cup of coffee, which, fyi, I'm snobby about! But then again, I have to be a perfectionist with it after the show that came before it. Well, I lied just a little bit there. If I didn't have that reason, I'd just find another excuse to justify my OCD'ness - if that's a word - about it. Though quixotic, for a brief moment in time at least, LA is all mine! What an incredible feeling it is in a city so thronged with humanity! Having said that though, I do think there's room for one more like minded soul within the morning mist. Just don't get weirded out when you discover that my appreciation of you is greatest during the simple times that reveal your true essence. When you first wake up in the morning, after a long day at work, or even when you get out of the ocean exhausted and smelling of sushi rolls. Don't get me wrong, there's definitely a certain pleasure in walking into a restaurant, taking your hand, and quietly reminding you that every man there is jealous of me. But that doesn't compare to that private moment, the one that's shared just by us. Born of a shared passion, experience, success, or failure, indeed, of a shared life, it's revelation of the depth of our intimacy and bond can't be matched. All of these things, taken together, remind me of just how fortunate I've been. But, as driven as I am to reach that next ledge, it's definitely time that this climb and all that comes with it is undertaken by 2.
