I would first describe myself as someone who is very passionate about all aspects of my life. I love being faced with new challenges constantly. Whether it is in my creative life or personal life, I always look at life as a series of opportunities to both learn from and be enriched by. Because of my career, I have been blessed by all of the people I have met and places I have traveled. Most people would describe me as someone who is very genuine, honest and sincere. I am most happy when I am with family and friends. I think it is important to constantly surround yourself with people who are always supportive, caring, and who offer different points of view and sometimes challenge your beliefs and ideas. In my romantic life, I think honesty; respect, communication, loyalty and support are vital in having a healthy and authentic relationship. I also consider myself a very affectionate person. I am a firm believer in romance and courtship. I know this sounds old fashioned, but I like to show my appreciation and love for someone who I care deeply about. And vice versa. I am definitely not a 'typical guy' in the sense that I don't have a hard time expressing myself, I don't like to watch and talk about sports or boast about my sexual prowess. I am more interested in the arts: music, film, museums, occasional flea markets, perusing book stores, going to new restaurants, sometimes shopping (yes, I'm into fashion as well), into design and have a great passion for modern architecture.
I love to go on weekend getaways. In fact, lately I have been dividing my time between LA and Palm Springs. I have been spending time in Palm Springs mostly because I have been photographing a body of work for what will be my first published book. It has been one of the most thrilling and rewarding experiences in my life. I also love everything that Palm springs has to offer: the small town feeling of it, the weather, the landscape, the way the light pours over the hills and through the many beautiful palm trees, the people and the modern architecture (which is what my book is about).
I have traveled all over Europe several times, Mexico, Canada, Greece. I definitely have the travel bug in me. At the top of my list of places to travel: Japan, Cuba, South America, and Scandinavia.
Why am I single? Well, because I am interested in finding one person who I truly connect with and feel deeply about. I am not into serial dating or doing simply for the sport of it. I am not interested in those things. And because of that, I want to be sure that I meet that one person. As most of us are, I am picky as to who that person will be, but not to the point of being close-minded. I welcome and accept a person for all of their quirks, characteristics, and idiosyncrasies. That's what makes us all unique and different. Right? Besides, it is much more interesting to allow someone in your life who challenges your pre-conceptions about things and stimulates you.
I am very close to my family. I consider my brother and mother my best friends. My grandparents are also very important to me.
Having grown up in L.A., I have many friends who I have known since I was in grade school. And having those relationships, I believe in many ways, has shaped who I am today.
At times I can be a homebody. I take pleasure sometimes staying at home, reading, doing chores, sometimes working, etc.
I am a devout napper. Whenever I have the chance, I like to take a nap in the afternoon. Ah, the pleasures of being free-lance.
But I also like to be spontaneous and adventurous. I like to go out and be outdoors & exploring different parts of the city.
I don’t have a ‘type’ that I date. My attraction to someone is based on so many things besides physical attraction. It can be anything from the sound of their voice, the things they say, how they say it, how they look when they laugh, how they move, and their overall attitude about life.
