My self-summary
I probably don't live in the city listed...I travel a lot for business, and most likely the city listed is one I am traveling to or are in. I actually like somewhere in Orange County, CA.

I'm in a very stable, open relationship, and I'd really like find someone chill to hang with. My relationship is open, it's honest, and it works. We aren't exactly poly...just open. If it isn't for you, no problem. It's a big old world, and there's enough out there for everyone.

I love the unusual people, the outcasts, the people that are brave enough to make their stand on their own terms. I love adventure, not just the adventure itself, but the pursuit of it...the intense buildup when you know something's about to happen, and you bend yourself to it, prepare for it, and then let it wash all over you. That's the kind of adventure I crave!

To put it all in much better words than I could ever conjure:
“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes “Awww!”

I travel a lot for business...from week to week I have no idea where I'll be. Usually, I try to align my home city to where I'll be next.

I'm smart, well read, educated, well traveled...I prefer great talks over a drink or two as opposed to going to clubs. I'm adventurous, and love smart, independent, adventurous women. I'm first attracted to the mind. I don't really have a "type" that I'm attracted to.

For the most part, I prefer women around my would take a mighty exceptional woman under 40 to catch my eye and interest. Experience has taught me that I enjoy the company of people my own age.
What I’m doing with my life
How does one even approach this question without sounding at least a little superficial?

I'm reading a lot, trying to resist the urge to run naked through the streets, looking back at an amazing life...looking foward to an even more amazing second act.
I’m really good at
Conversations. I love someone who knows the art of conversation, but at the same time isn't intimidated by silence.
The first things people usually notice about me
My size. I'm a big guy...tall, broad shoulders, big's hard to miss me when I walk into a room. Next would be my eyes. I'm told I have intense brown eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I just finished re-reading On The Road, after 25 years. It's an amazing book that sparked my wanderlust all those years ago. Re-reading reaffirmed my love of the road.

++Both have been read and enjoyed. Not Dharma was too soon after On The Road, and I couldn't get into it. Someday.+++
Currently looking for my next book. Right now, the candidates are Brave New World, Dharma Bums and Razors Edge. I'm kind of leafing through all three at the moment, waiting for one of them to grab me.

Music, I love 80's college rock, 90's alternative, punk, new wave stuff. I try to keep an open mind..if it's good, I'll listen. I just put my iPod on are the first 10 that pop up:
Wire - I 2 X U
Weezer - Only In Dreams
OMD - If You Leave
Minutemen - The Politics of Time
The Smiths - Still Ill
REM - Loosing My Religion
Art of Noise - Beat Box
Sonic Youth - Superstar
Sebadoh - Skull
Nirvana - Territorial Pissings
Hell of a lot more that isn't here. Music is so important.

Yep, that about does it.

Movies...I dig really odd flicks...Repo Man (the 80's original) is one of my favs. Blues Brothers makes me laugh. Apollo 13..something about it hypes me up. I love dumb comedies..the dumber it is, the more I like it. I also dig documentaries...Inside Job freaked me outta be required viewing by everyone.

Food: Lately, I been on a sushi tear. I love Thai food, Indian is always a favorite. I'm up to try almost anything. Except peas. I hate peas. +++I haven't had great Sushi since I stopped working in San Francisco last year.+++
The six things I could never do without
My Kindle - Perfect companion for a traveler.
My iPod - Gotta have the soundtrack to my life. Ooops. Replace this with my cellphone.
My laptop - It's how I pay the bills and stay connected.
Coffee - Love it, and it jump starts the day.
Great Tequila - Gives me that wonderful glow, makes me playful, and talkative.
Sex - Self explanatory
I spend a lot of time thinking about
So many things...
On a typical Friday night I am
Chillin after a stressful week on the road, usually. I like my Friday nights to be decompression nights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to have another profile here, but a stalker forced me to delete it.

I have a crush on Fiona Apple. I know she's crazy...but she's the kind of crazy I find sexy and irresistible. Go figure.
You should message me if
You're cool, you want to hang out, you're funny, you get the open thing, and aren't threatened by it. You like to talk, you like tequila, you're a fellow adventurer, you like interesting people...hell, just send me a message. Even if you're no where close to my home city, I always enjoy meeting new people, and you never know...I may be coming to a town near you!
