Here we go, pimping myself out like the floozy I am. I'm a hip-hop artist (rapper/producer) and singer. No, not one of THOSE guys, I'm pretty darn alright at it and absolutely love what I do. I generally love life and always appreciate it, the good and the bad, the lighter and darker stuff. Pretty smart, offbeat-edly humorous, unashamedly nerdy. A people person who enjoys some solitude in the mix. There's no such thing as "normal" and we should all explore, discover, and be who we are following our own hearts and minds.
I get pretty fired up when people are assholes. I'm hard into practical philosophy. I have two daughters from a young marriage who I'm super committed to, they are my little family. I'm a vegetarian gym-going runner who also sits back and eats brownies with the best of them. I can be pretty intense and passionate. I'm an avid reader and frequent writer. I love nature in a major way. I swear a lot, often creatively. I have two cats and a snake, having been historically terrified of snakes until about three months ago. I'd still scream like a little school girl or straight pass out if I stumbled upon one in the woods. Real talk. I love and respect myself (have worked hard for it) but am far from an egomaniac. I'm a fan of thrift shopping for fly outfits. Love progressive science. Interior design and design of all sorts. Walking, really love walks. I've gone to the odd sweat lodge ceremony and meditation circle. I've been called "the most random person ever" and love making robot costumes out of cardboard.
I tell strangers way too much about myself. I overuse the words "dude", "awesome", and "stellar". I'm technologically behind the curve and okay with that. Put your Goddamn cellphone away for two minutes.
As far as this site and you are concerned, I'm interested in meeting new people and seeing where it goes whether friendship or further. It's always good to have more mutually beneficial relationships in life. I'm a romantic soul who loves all that but I'm not looking to force anything either. Open to whatevs so long as we vibe.

I'm an avid reader.

SHOWS - I don't watch much TV but Planet Earth, Freaks and Geeks, Arrested Development, Game of Thrones, Adventure Time, the Walking Dead, Being Human, been watching Stephen Fry in America, Flight of the Conchords, Everwood. Breaking Bad is awesome but it bums me out. Again, I don't watch much TV these days, I think I used that card up in my teens.
MUSIC - I can't even do this one. Seriously there's too much. I listen to an absurd variety of music, it's not a cop-out answer. Ask me personally if you REALLY wanna know, chances are I listen to some of what you listen to. Conversation starter: I almost never pick favorites but Incubus is my favorite band and has been for 15 years. Also Radiolab podcasts.
FOOD - Yes. Of all sorts.
Spirituality (No that's not some contrived new agey bullshit. Life is deep.)
I wear Old Spice Swagger because it's called Old Spice Swagger.
I've always wanted to star in a musical.
Oh yeah. So not searching for a new mother for my kids, my dating life is kept separate from them unless it gets really serious. Just getting that out of the way.
