I'm 40, live in Long Beach, have incredible friends, a career that I love (I am a cameraman, I work in commercials, short films, corporate events, award ceremonies, concerts, etc. It's a lot of fun to be quite honest). I also direct commercials, independent films and documentaries.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is my passion, (big time brownie points if you know what that is) I'm a brown belt under Leo Vieira (more props if you know who he is!) and the idea is to someday after I get my black belt, open my own academy. That is the retirement plan!
In 2010 I started doing voice over work for commercials (corporate voice-over for the most part). So as you can see I work in a creative environment. Hoping to find someone who is into art and understands it or at least appreciates it.
I have very strong work ethics and I won't stop until I achieve my goals. I need my partner to be hard working and driven.
I like to read! Bukowski, William Peter Blatty, Alan Watts, Jack Kerouac, Osho (to name a few) and as far as magazines, I read: National Geographic, Gracie Magazine (Brazilian jiu-jitsu) and Esquire. I'm a Buddhist in training, still trying to find enlightenment in all aspects of my life (far out yeah!)
What else... I write, creative writing, poetry, short stories, etc. In 2009 some of my work got published, if you want to read it, ask me and I'll send you the link.
Oh! I can cook, like Emeril baby!! BAM!!! dead serious! I'll take the Pepsi challenge any day! Bring it on! (Mayor points if you like cooking!)
PLEASE READ! I have 2 "kids" my son is 20 and a Jr. in college and my daughter about to turn 18 and a senior in high school. Although not living with me, they are a big part of my life.
And lastly, (following the cues of this site) my taste in music. I love jazz, classic rock, blues, fusion, alternative, rock en español, classical music, its a long a$$ list! Among my faves are, Miles Davis, Sinatra, Maroon 5, Kings of Leon, Van Halen, Mozart, Nick Drake, Pink Floyd, Eric Clapton, Ray Charles, Beethoven, Bach, Queen and at the top, The Beatles. (Among many, many others) Hall & Oates are pretty cool! (got the vibe??)
The following quote is from Charles Bukowski and it pretty much explains how I choose to live my life:
We are here to unlearn the teachings of
the church, the state, and our educational system.
We are here to drink beer.
We are here to kill war.
We are here to laugh at the odds and
live our lives so well that
Death will tremble to take us...
If you are out there and if you got to read this part of my profile. Please send me a sign! I'm sick of this website, really!!
UPDATE: I am not interested in going out with serial daters, flakes (I think is very disrespectful to mess around with people's time or intentions) Girls on the rebound! Forget about it!. If you are one of them, I'm not the guy for you! Please take care of yourself, wanna be treated like a lady? Be one please! When I go out on a date I present myself clean, no bad breath, etc, and I would expect the same
Smart, interesting and passionate women are hot!
