ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

A no-frills, down-to-earth cosmopolitan, I am flexible, positive, dislike pretense and despise arrogance. I love sincerity, humility, good conversation, good humor and social activism. I look for equal measures beauty and nobility. For me, politics & faith are negotiable; patience, kindness and candor are not.

I'm devout but nonjudgmental. I pray every day. I read. I try to overlook the faults of others, because mine are too obvious. At the same time, I expect both encouragement and appreciation.

My favorite T-shirt slogan is "Warning: Educated Black Man." For ten years I wore dreadlocks for political--not for fashion reasons. Unlike most Seattleites, had I lived in the '60s, I'd be less flower child and more H. Rapp Brown: black power fist pic and a dashiki.

That being said, I'm little (far) East-side, too. Although you won't hear it without a good reason, I speak Mandarin. I also meditate, sometimes feel 'home-sick' for China, and avoid fake Chinese food (sorry, P.F. Chang). My biggest cross-cultural mistake was how I learned married Chinese women don't necessarily wear rings.

Between those two poles of culture, I'm simply a dad committed to a respectful relationship with my kids mom. I take pride in this role more than any other. I have two beautiful (actually, their mom & I had some good genes to blend) children, and I'm writing a book: "Daddy School: Reassuring Your 4-year-old You Know What Your Doing…Especially When you Don't" ;)

Let's see, confessions: I'm terrible with computers; I'm a mediocre cook. I don't have cable but all I miss is sports. I Lately I've been too busy to keep up with shotokan or soccer, but they're my favorites. If you don't like soccer, just don't judge as I yell at the screen. I'm getting into Pacific NW Hiking, but biking the hills kills me. I work a lot and love my job. I'm deluded enough to believe I have a role to play in transforming our healthcare system.

You probably have a good sense by now for what I'm looking for: someone who is happy & emotionally healthy, a critical thinker & thoughtful, physically active & attractive, driven by her dreams & yet able to be supportive of mine. I respect women who conquer their fears, think about the well-being of others, and believe in human progress. I'm looking for someone who has experienced hardships, yet laughs and reaches for the stars. Thanks for reading.

For fun:

I learned as a young traveler to try to see the sights around town, so I like being a resident tourist. Enjoy sports, and like eating out; I don't drink, but get a kick watching friends' inhibition wane. Love the conversations after a good movie.

Favorite hot spots:

depending on my mood: Chi-Town, Hotlanta, South Cackilacky, Northern Israel, Eritrea, Chengdu, Xi'an, Hiroshima, St. Kitts or St. Eustatitius (West Indies), the Olympic Peninsula, Canon Beach...or Flint :)

Favorite things:

I grew up playing classical piano, listening to pop's reggae, funk, and jazz. I love positive hip-hop/reggae. Often go to Seattle Symphony. Scandal's got me hooked, but when I need comedy, it's Office. Sherlock is da'bomb.

Last read:

Jane Eyre is favorite novel from the past year. I love black history--but Jackie Robinson's autobiography needed a better ghostwriter. I read some kind of religious scripture daily. Love NY Times, Harvard Business Review, & positive psychology.
