Okay, here goes my story in 30 seconds. Overall, I own and run a small business I started a few years ago (in M&A/investment banking for technology and media companies), I have an MBA degree, I am a "house head" (thats house/techno music for you newbies), love modern art and architecture, love the beach, workout 4 times a week, eat very healthy (90% vegetarian/vegan), I am hyper and full of energy, liberal minded, free spirited, independent and I love to travel. I am pretty funny and am a part-time nerd.
I am the guy that will take out his friends, show them new places around LA they have never been to, and then buy them drinks if they don't have money. I will also open a ladies car door when we go out.
I grew up in Dallas, TX and have lived in Los Angeles for 10+ yrs and love it. Also lived in NYC and did the "Wall Street" thing...and spent a summer living in Paris (France) for a part of my MBA program. I also love SF, NYC, Barcelona, Rome, Madrid, Ibiza, Maui, Bali, Paris, Capri and other cities around the world. I love to travel and think it opens your mind and perspective on life and culture(s) overall. My father is from Brooklyn, NY and my mother was born in Colorado. They were hippie parents when I was younger and taught me how to be a good person. I am very liberal minded overall and love to experience new thoughts, cultures, learning opportunities, etc.
I am an ENTP for the Myers-Briggs personality type. I am a sharp, quick thinker who works hard and loves to have fun. I tend to do things to the extreme overall....work and play.
According to another recent test I took...I am "The Ham" regarding what type of humor style I am. "Your style's goofy, innocent and feel-good. Perfect for parties and for the dads who chaperone them. You can actually get away with corny jokes, and I bet your sense of humor is a guilty pleasure for your friends. People of your type are often the most approachable and popular people in their circle. Your simple & silly good-naturedness is immediately recognizable, and it sets you apart in this sarcastic world."
I work very hard but like to have fun and explore the city when I'm not working. I am very adventurous overall. I am NOT a couch potato and prefer that you are not either. Hope you can keep up with me!
