I'm easy going, laid-back with a friendly disposition, witty and easy to strike up a conversation with. The only downside of it is that sometimes people that you just met at the subway station or airport tell you far more than what you really want to know.
I think of myself as a worldly person, in not just the places that I have traveled to but the diverse group of people that are my friends, coworkers and acquaintances. I enjoy learning and knowing more about people of different cultures, countries, their beliefs, traditions, history, regional economics, politics, watching foreign movies and trying out new cuisine. I speak six languages, have relatives in six countries across three continents and proud to be an American.
At the end of the day, I think of myself as a normal and nice guy with many traditional values and aspirations. I have been fortunate enough that contrary to what they say about nice guys, I did not always finish last.
Looking to meet someone that I can have a conversation with on anything serious to trivial, laugh at silly things, be good friends to begin with, doing things together locally in San Diego and out of town, checking out hiking trails, weekend trips to the countryside or Vegas or Pacific coast, museums, beaches, kayaking, tennis, discussions on current events, economics, politics, environmental issues, cultural activities, foreign films, college football, pro football and whatever was featured on 60 Minutes, places from Travel Channel and FoodNetwork's DDD (my dream job).
The type of person I'm looking for values mutual trust, honesty, sense of humor and open communication above all. Someone who looks at this process from the heart and soul and not as an audition on American Idol.
I try to maintain the balance between work and play. Fitness bootcamps are my new favorite activity.
Atleast once a week you will even find me in the kitchen, not just for coffee but doing some real cooking and experiments with fusion cooking. Some of the experiments turn out to be the ones that we don't speak of, ever again, but that's a whole another story.
