I'm 38, 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).
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is my passion, (big time brownie points if you know what that is) I'm a brown belt and the idea is to someday after I get my black belt, open my own academy. That is the retirement plan!
Regardless, I'm working on both very hard! I am very driven.
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 all of 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 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!)
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 teens, my son is 18 and he is in college, lives in campus. My daughter is 15 and she lives with me. She is as good as they come. Polite, respectful and smart, total sweetheart! She spends weekends with mom, so I get plenty of "me" time.
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: Django Reinhardt, Miles Davis, Sinatra, Maroon 5, Kings of Leon, Van Halen, Mozart, Nick Drake, Pink Floyd, Eric Clapton, 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!!
