I am a Latino from Texas who has lived in New York City. Now I live in the Great Lakes area near Chicago.
I have had two careers. My first was as a professor of English Literature at university. Now I am a design engineer and computer analyst in the automotive industry. I am well-educated, with an intellectual, cultured mind. I love poetry, music, the arts. But I am also fun-loving and playful, and enjoy being active in the outdoors--bicycling, hiking, canoeing are favorite activities.
I love to laugh and put people at ease. My soul is gentle, soft-spoken, modest and patient. I have a light heart, but also a strong mind. I adore making children smile; I want to find a woman whom I can worship and adore.
I am very fond of social dancing, of any kind. But I am especially good at salsa and other Caribbean dances: merengue, reggaeton, la bachata.
I am a good amateur musician--I love to sing, either with a guitar, karaoke, or else in a choir or chorus. I am fond of classical music, as well as more modern, rock, jazz, pop, r-and-b.
I am an active outdoorsman and am especially fond of hiking in the mountains. I'm a great fan of the cinema, and love to read poetry as well. What would be a perfect day? Maybe having a picnic on a green hill top, then reading poetry aloud as I rest my head in the lap of a beautiful girl. Can you see yourself in this picture?
Did you see the movie Jerry Maguire"? In the climax the lover says to his beloved, "You complete me." I dream of a soul-mate who is my other half. The crucial values are these: mutual respect, trust, capacity for fun, the ability to laugh at one's self and see the face of God everywhere and in everyone.
