All fotos are from March 2013 unretouched. I am back and forth Manhattan / Saudi Arabia, where I maintain the majority of my biz.
I am passionate about enjoying NY; I subscribe to daily emails of free NYC events; Favorites are Danspace Project at St Marks; Vision Festival; Lincoln Center out of doors; Fringe Festival; Messiah sing-a-long at Lincoln Center; riding over the GW bridge and then looping under and up on the Jersey side River Road; Williamsburg softball pick up games on Wednesday nights; Long Beach jumping waves, flying my kite and playing volleyball; the stuffed derma at Katz's (but not too often because its a fat bomb);
I invite anyone to share/discuss with me their NYC secrets and joys. NYC in summer is like 90 days of Christmas. Do you like to dance to rock, swing, tango, zydeco, salsa, bhangra, or other ? Midsummer Night Swing, Moon Dance, Harlem Meer, Governor's Island, Mister Saturday Night, Globesonic, PS1, Central Park Tango, Union Square Tango, and Dekalb Market, all outdoors, should get our dancing legs working. If the ONLY arts venue in NYC was BAM, I would probably be happy, because the offerings are so rich.
"boys and girls together, me and Mamie O'rourke, trip the light fantastic, on the sidewalks of New York" although I do love upstate in September after Labor Day: whitewater rafting, hot air ballooning, horseback riding, and bbq'ing;
I usually book months in advance and this year is no exception.
Although I play on my church 20's-30's softball team I can easily describe myself as
Atheist - there is only Magical Reality
Muslim - there is no God but God (la ilaha il allah)
Jewish - I will be that I will be (eheyeh asher eheyeh)
Buddhist/Hindu - I am that I am (so ham)
Christian - Divine Incarnation
I am an "equal opportunity" lover;) I believe in yin-yang, shiva-shakti, and ahnee l'dohdee v'dohdee lee (which means I am to/for/with my beloved as my beloved is to/for/with me, from the Song of Songs) one body, one breath, one heart, one beauty.
Nota Bene and disclaimer: if you believe in actuarial tables and not body age I am not your man. In order to appear in searches of women wanting kids, and to NOT appear in searches of women passed that age, I listed my age younger than my chronological age. The March 2013 fotos are not photoshopped or edited. For further research on body age, google centenarians. Cheers !
Me in a nutshell - fun-loving, thoughtful, hard-working, outgoing and energetic. I'm addicted to NPR and yoga, but not at the same time. Here’s a little secret between you and me, I occasionally stop off for cupcakes on my way home from the gym. I mean, if you had Crumbs Bakery on your way home, can you honestly say you’d pass that test?
Here are some more of my favorite things:
driving, traveling, museums, food festivals, wine, rollerblading, live music, U2, yoga, eating out, swimming, books, football (and futbol!), sushi, arm wrestling and bowling (just kidding about the arm wrestling, but bring it)
Renaissance Festival, books, some board games, and traveling.
Hello and thanks for reading my profile. This is the story of how I came to Canada. Will you join me in creating what happens next? :-)
I was fortunate to start with dual citizenship and two languages. Born on US Naval Base in Rota, Spain. Got to experience diversity growing up in Germany, Morocco, Puerto Rico and several US States (NY, Virginia and Florida).
Lucky to get to Miami in time to finish High school and start College. Majored in Broadcasting which included a favorite: Photography. Luck and education continued in Orlando where I studied Film at the University of Central Florida with the makers of the Blair Witch Project. Pretty Cool, huh? While waiting for degree took extra film courses at the University of South Florida in Tampa.
Creative ambition lead me to Hollywood, California in 1995, where I transitioned into an official actor. Joined the Screen Actors Guild and did Background and Special Skills work. While there was told how good things were for Film / TV in Canada and first considered the move. A Visa was required. So taking into account that great achievements involve great risk, I took advantage of degree and taught English in Asia.
Went to Seoul then Tokyo. Taught English, did Voice work plus acting. Then after two years in a place where I did not speak the language, got an offer in Spain where and reunited with family. My sister, nephew and sometimes my mother live there along with a few aunts, uncles and cousins.
Settled in Madrid where I used resourcefulness to start a luggage storage business. This allowed the flexibility to audition and act. Was featured in mostly commercials, a few features and even was an American accent coach once. From there I attempted to immigrate to Canada, but found it made more sense to go to the UK first and try from there. So in August 2007 I moved to London, UK.
From London, UK I started the Canadian immigration process. While there I continued acting and took acting, voice and singing classes at the City Lit and Morley College. Even though I had been acting for a while I had no formal training. Then in April 2011 I got my Canadian Visa and booked my flight. I considered Vancouver, but thought Toronto had more potential for work, exploring and new adventure.
I try to live a good, honorable life and practice moderation. Being active, healthy and keeping fit are important. I enjoy exploring (hiking / traveling) and going places I've never been before at least once a week. I respect myself / others and take responsibility for my actions. I can be a bit ambitious / overzealous but when I make mistakes, I take immediate steps to fix them. I'm open to change, without compromising my values. Even though I like spending time alone each day, I enjoy socializing with quality people. Overall, I'm happy with my life and the only thing that would truly make it better is finding the right person to share it with.
We could check out the Royal Ontario Museum. Take the ferry to the Toronto Islands. Visit the St. Lawrence Market. Explore the Harbourfront where we can rent skates to take ice skating at Colonel Samuel Smith Park. Take pictures of cool neighborhoods like the Distillery Historic District, Art Gallery of Ontario, Hockey Hall of Fame, Elgin & Winter Garden Theatre Centre and Queen West for example. Or if the weather is bad, walk the underground path from Union Station to Trinity Square. We can also do stuff like go to the movies, comedy clubs and outdoor festivals or go bowling (five pin or regular) and shoot pool.
The best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other. I'd like to find the right woman to share that kind of love with. So if you'd like to join me and turn my story into our story then please drop me a line. ;-) If we have the right chemistry, we could write a few new chapters together.
P.S. You can view my Youtube channel: www.youtube.com/roccosalata and give me feedback on that or my profile if you like. Thanks and take care.
Late brunch (or food festival) with friends, museum/farmer's market/beach, whipping up an elaborate dinner for my housemates, and then wine and a good book before bed.
Sleep in, wake slowly, cuddle up/luxuriate, go out to brunch...and then pick some random, spontaneous, joy-evoking activity that strikes our fancy in the moment. Could be anything from checking out a street festival or underground market, seeing a film/performance/band, going dancing, wandering through a museum/gallery/art happening, an off-peak visit to the ocean, random day trip someplace cool, reading books, laying on the grass and talking about what flavor the sun would be, writing hopeful messages and leaving them in unexpected places for people to come across...whatever. Just as long as it feels like 100% play.
In the summer, going to the beach, riding my bike, famers market, mostly anything outdoors.
In the fall/winter, watching football (go Bears!), street festivals, good movies, reading good books, and playing in the snow
Sleeping in, having a perfect cup of coffee while watching Sunday Morning on CBS, walking or biking in the park, attending a craft festival, reading a book by the fire, and sharing it all with a very special someone.
1) Apple - I'm a total fangirl. Not a day goes by without touching my: Macbook Pro, iPad 2, iPod, and iPhone 4.
2) music - shows, festivals, what.cd
3) books/blogs - I'm very interested in health and nutrition.
4) art/design - well designed, aesthetically pleasing things makes me happy
5) bicycles - I don't really like driving and try to commute by bike whenever possible
6) Yoga - I practice Bikram Yoga (hawt) at least 4 times a week.
Entertainment - music, movies/TV, books/comics, activities indoor and outdoor, music festivals, etc.
