I was born and raised in Venezuela (and no, I don't like Chavez), finished my B.S. in Chemical Engineering and moved to San Diego about 6 years ago. I went to school at SDSU for my M.S. in Environmental Engineering. It was a great and smart career choice. I lived in Sacramento for two years (that is slept/worked there but spent time in the Bay or Tahoe) and finally was able to make it back to San Diego.
Sports are my thing. I was on the basketball and soccer varsity teams in school. I was good at them, really good actually... at least my mom (principal) and dad (coach) said it. That's the number one reason I believe family is so important (value #1). Second reason is I remember my dad left me unattended in the patio when I was a kid and I was inches away to amputate my thumb with a machete. I currently play soccer and softball. My brother is the softball team's captain and coach, you see, family is important and I keep them pretty close (he actually lives two blocks away from me, so can't help it). If you wonder about soccer, I am the team captain and coach and you got that right: I say I am awesome at it. There it goes, value #2: self-confidence.
Yes, like almost everyone, I love traveling and I've been lucky to do it. I actually just came back from a trip to Imperial and El Centro... easy, don't be jealous or discouraged; I wouldn't mind going there again with the right company (indeed, value #3: thoughtful).
In all honesty (value #4), soccer is my passion which means I spend a few days a week either playing or watching games (Go Manchester United). That doesn't mean I'd rather stay home watching a game over going to a social event or just outside. I love traveling, have done some, I think about where and when to go all the time, and believe traveling solo (which I've done) is better than not traveling at all. But of course, the best of those solo adventures have been with people I met along the way. My parents weren't part of my high school, but it is true that I almost chopped my left thumb when they left me unattended. I still love them though and am proud of being their son, and there I said it, value #5: loyalty. I am a very driven guy who has worked really hard, will continue to do so, and am proud of all I have achieved without forgetting all the help and support received from family, friends, and life experiences. I hope to find someone to enjoy and share all what life has to offer, or maybe someone who just wants to play in a soccer or softball team: I can hook you up (generosity, value #6).
I can't believe you actually read this whole thing... if you would like to know some more drop me a message or send a wink.
