I'm an educated wine (and beer) drinking traveler who spends his free time practicing yoga, playing tennis, reading at coffee shops and frequenting the beaches...especially Moonlight Beach in Encinitas. I enjoy quiet nights in cooking or barbecuing with good wine, company and conversation, mix in a movie, as much as nights out trying new restaurants, sporting events (huge baseball and Padres fan) and the occasional bar.
Personality wise, I'm driven, down to earth, passionate, a straight shooter and loyal. I drink Iced Americanos even when its snowing yet I freeze when it's below 60 degrees. New York is a second home (or third now) yet I've never lived there (my family is from the East Coast and visit frequently). I just moved back up to Santa Monica after an almost 5 year stint in Encinitas - still enjoy my weekends in the whale's...
The best places I've visited are Paris, Cinque Terre, Lagos, Val d'isere, Cannes, Dublin, and Jerusalem. I look forward to many more trips abroad (the next travel chapter with that best friend and more).
