I am an equities trader who has been living in NYC for 3 years. I went to school for International Relations and Latin American studies, and am still pretty passionate about those two fields. But my current career is fast paced, challenging, and has taught me a lot about my own psychology. For that, I love it. The pay isn't too shabby either.
Thankfully, my line of work also allows me the time to pursue other hobbies and interests. Boxing is one of those, and I devote myself to it pretty religiously. Acting has also recently become a very large part of my life. It's very addicting, and an amazing form of creative expression. Travel is probably my other great pleasure. I get very antsy being in one place for too long, and love exploring new cultures, food, languages, places... I have lived in Spain, Brasil, and Nicaragua, and would like to spend some more time abroad.
My musical taste is pretty reflective of my background and travel experiences, I guess. I love electronic music, particularly deep and jazzy house. But I can groove to anything that has a great beat, or guitar/ rhythm. I grew up in Southern California, listening to Black Sabbath, Sublime, and that west-coast hip hop. But i get excited about salsa, samba, traditional arabic and indian music, funk, reggae... list goes on. I really think musical taste says a lot about a person, and it really excites me to find someone who's tastes overlap with mine.
