I’ve got lots of long-standing, close friendships, and family who I really enjoy. I do regular volunteer work and thrive on community connection. My career generally advances my beliefs & values.
I was a nerdy kid, who grew up on the fringe of 80s Austin punk and came to love this town deeply. In some ways, not a lot has changed -- I still love going to shows, indie movies & art openings, collecting old records, and exploring. I’ve also become a design buff; my East Austin cottage hints at a mid-60s, Atomic Ranch style.
Always reading something, whether it’s a novel, a book on health or politics, something spiritual, or The Nation magazine. Also love to write. Though not doing much at the moment, I’ve written journal articles on urban planning, political essays, and even amateur pop songs.
The geeky cerebralism is offset, at least kinda, by my love of running, playing outside, and goofing around in general. I also meditate and do stuff that helps me stay centered & aware. It seems to work pretty well; I’m energetic, healthy and stable.
Am hoping to meet someone who resonates with the above and is open to true partnership, but doesn’t consider simple friendliness a waste of time. Intangible understanding matters more than particular traits or biographical details.
