A: I don't like to put myself in a box so get to know me a bit better by messaging or texting me!
A: I would share a memory about my family and all of the amazing places I have been fortunate enough to travel to growing up. Most likely relate the amazing food to something I had had along the way on one of those trips!
A: I identify my greatest personal traits as follows:
- My intelligence is something I have always taken pride in and continue to further on a daily basis!
- Charisma and charm that allows me to build meaningful and lasting connections with others
- Sense of humor that makes everything a little lighter
- Ambition that keeps me looking forward to what is to come next, while appreciating the present
- Humility that keeps me grounded and reminds me that we are all equal
A: I show up for myself and I make sure that I continue to practice personal responsibility in all aspects of my personal and professional life. Please ask what personal responsibility means to me!
A: Laidback and active. I enjoy being a high energy, low-stress individual. Enjoy the things that are meant to be enjoyed and don't let others carry too much weight in your life!
A: Respect is the main pillar for any relationship in my life. I expect the same respect that I put into a relationship in return. All are respected equally until I am given a reason to either gain respect or lose it. I pay attention to how someone treats strangers and appreciate those who show respect to everyone they encounter.
A good way to put it is that I have the most respect for the people who always say thank you to the bus driver!
A: I LOVE being outdoors and around nature. Preferably discovering and exploring a new part of the world! I love to hike and camp and being in or around water is a plus in my book!! If I cant travel I will most likely be out by the pool enjoying the sun or inside listening to music!
A: I listen to music nearly all waking hours. I love live shows, festivals, etc. Sex is a great way to have fun as well!
A: Although I am grateful for every amazing opportunity or experience I have had, my greatest experience is waking up every morning.
A: I have struggled with this question since the day I signed up for RM. I have tweaked and shifted it a tad every so often but my answer doesn't resonate how I intend. simply put, I am honest to a fault. I am always presenting the true version of myself, and do not change or create an alternative persona regardless of who or what I am doing. The Jake you meet the first time is the Jake that is sitting alone in bed right now writing this message. I enjoy what I do immensely and do not need to act for myself or anyone else!
A: I believe in the adage, "good things in, good things out!" so I try to consume foods that are nutritious but still tasty. I like to avoid processed foods as much as possible but do not have any specific dietary restrictions (other than I don't like mushrooms, olives, or raw tomatoes) !
I love to eat out and explore restaurants in the cities I visit, and prefer to pair my meal with a glass (or bottle) of pinot noir or other red blend!
- I try to work out at least 3 times a week to bulk up a bit, so if you're looking for a gym/post-gym locker room buddy, I am your guy!
A: I LOVE to travel. ~1/3 of my time is spent exploring a new place or finding the "hole-in-the-wall" in a familiar city! I am trying to establish a bigger client-base in Houston. Although being on the go keeps my ADHD at bay; it is nice to be home and enjoy my own space! Traveling allows me to afford the lifestyle I want while seeing different parts of the world, and most importantly, all while doing the things I love.
A: I was adopted at birth. This continues to humble me and has instilled boundless gratitude for the people, places and things I have been able to experience. I have recently expanded my family tree, connecting with my biological siblings last year and am now a proud uncle!!
A: -I am tirelessly developing myself as an individual. I hold high value in personal responsibility and the impact it has on my past, present, and future. I have made many mis-steps and taking ownership and utilizing the lessons I have taken away from them has only made me grow.
-I am a "people-pleaser" at my core, and navigate and adapt the role I take in different settings.
-I LOVE to hold stimulating conversations. Ask my opinion on something controversial!
A: The quality I enjoy most about myself would be my charismatic demeanor and positive attitude (most of the time). I can thank my Grandmother and my Mom for developing my affable qualities. I love learning about others’ passions, and finding the commonalities between us! There are infinite outlooks and perspectives to gain by listening to others, and I love to meet new people. By filtering our human experience through it hers’ predispositions in the foreground has allowed me to reshape my own outlook on the world.
A: I could not survive without:<br />
If I am not engaged otherwise, I am without a doubt listening to music! <br />
2)PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY SANDWICHES: <br />
Nostalgia is one of my favorite phenomena, and eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches always reminds me of eating my lunch in elementary school.<br />
3)COMPANIONSHIP 👯♂️<br />
My family, friends and the new faces I meet help recharge my battery and help keep a smile on my face!<br />
4)THE GREAT OUTDOORS<br />
There is nothing I enjoy more in life than my lungs being flooded with crisp mountain air. Waking up to the drowsy sunlight filtering through the trees during a camping trip is my ideal setting.<br />
I am blessed with the ability to travel as frequently as I do. I thrive in settings that are continuously developing where opportunities to learn and experience new things are abundant.
