Throw me in a room and I can get along with anyone -- most of the time whoever I'm speaking to ends up telling me their life story. I am a very social person and love people - learning about others and where they come from motivates me. I have a blast esp when it comes to salsa dancing. On the contrary, as my work often entails being around people and managing teams, there is also something about being in solitude and embracing the time spent alone. I enjoy and embrace the very simple things in life, which make me the happiest. I live my life being present, positive, conscious, grounded, and aware -- applying humility and gratitude in my daily life.
My closest friends describe me as honest, genuine, loyal, confident, fun, hard-working, and adventurous. They would also say that I have young spirit, but old soul. I believe that no one is perfect and everyone makes mistakes, that includes myself. I love to travel, watch any kind of sports - although I would rather be watching it live, and any activities in the water. I am very open minded to other cultures and backgrounds. I am selective in who I surround myself -- positive, quality people. I enjoy taking care of myself, of those around me, and along with those who are less fortunate (I sit on several non-profit boards in the greater LA area). I wrote my honors thesis, and conducted research and published in Europe. After graduating, I went off and spent over 5 years in public service - I was a former congressional staffer. I was also one of the youngest executives leading a national non-profit.
I believe mutual chemistry and interest should be organic and effortless. I believe in being courted and treated with respect. I'm looking for a true, good, and genuine man who has earned his own way and right. Someone who has solid life experiences, shared commonalities, and has layers -- substance. I plan on living life to the fullest and consistently pushing myself to evolve as a human being.
I am looking for a calm, balanced, honest, loyal, and selfless individual who has a great sense of humor and levity. A person of integrity, character, and has a strong faith in God. I'm not talking about being religious or practice within an "organized religion", but having a deeper level of faith and spirituality. Someone who knows who they are, how to communicate well in a relationship (communication is key and very important to me), and take initiative while respecting boundaries. Someone who can accompany me to high-end functions and be able to carry their own, participate in any outdoor/physical activity, or just hanging out by the pool and bbq-ing. You are not satisfied with status quo, realizing that life is more than materialistic wealth, and is generous to those around you.
You are a remarkable and extraordinary, but humble and compassionate man.
