Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm witty, not silly. I have a dry sardonic wit that keeps my dance
partners laughing. I aspire to creativity, and art and found a way
to make a life with it. I love long serious conversations over
dinner, wine and coffee where we find the answers to life the
universe and everything together.
I'm looking for a magic connection. Physical, emotional,
intellectual. I don't initiate messages at this time, but I'd love
to meet you if you are actually interested. Sometimes it takes me a
while to respond even.
I am married and poly; my wife and girlfriend know I'm here. Not
saturated entirely, but busy. Don't worry I'll introduce you if you
I love to travel, and I've done it a lot. Kayaking is critical to
my sanity and there are few places I feel more at home than in my
boat along the shore of a random island. Most oddly I suppose, I
love caving: with the connection to the earth, the physical effort
and the risk, it's the most visceral thing you'll ever do. I really
miss the snow. :(
I enjoy tactile experiences, interactions and connections.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm happily committed, I have many great friends, and I balance a
rewarding and challenging career in software design with all the
fun stuff. Usually the balance is off a little.
I just moved to the city (Madrona/CD) after 15 years in the
country, I'm still figuring out all of the fun and exciting things
around town. Care to join me?
The most important thing that I learn every day is who I am.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I design things, I create random objects, often with a steampunk
theme. Ask me and I will send you pictures of these collages and
sculptures. They pay me to direct the design of software. It's been
quite an effective way to make a living. So there are the visual
Talking to a large (300+) room full of people is something I'm good
at and enjoy.
With caving I learned to be good with knots
. Turns out it's a transferable skill.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes they notice the gauged earings, lately it's the beard. At
my age its two tone, cool without dye.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read more than you. My wife is a novelist , but for reasons of
confidence I'm not talking about those books. My favorite
novel is "Crime and Punishment" or
perhaps it's "Breakfast of Champions" or "Kindred", "Time Enough
for Love", "Left Hand of Darkness", "To Say Nothing of the Dog",
"American Gods", "IQ84"... Ahh shit, I give up. I have a roomful of
favorite books. I've read your profile, and if there is a book
there I haven't read that intrigued me, I've added it to my Kindle
(or if it looked really incredible I've ordered the book).
When it comes to live performances, I love theater of all kinds,
but I'm particularly fond of musical theater, and my personal
favorite is Pippin.
Music: Eclectic in the extreme. I'm really partial to these song
I love jogging to this one, so sexy
As for the Star Wars, Star Trek question: Dr. Who, but then Star
Wars.... I prefer to be outside, but sometimes curling up with a
movie or a show is just what the doctor, ahem, ordered.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Computers, it's the thing I do
Coffee/Wine, I refuse to pick my vice ...
Books, is literature a thing?
My Kayak, it takes me where I want to go
My Camera, it shows me what I need to see
My Imagination, it opens doors that should be closed.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Usually work. However when I'm not working, art. It's an
exploratory process as I try to find an expression of Art that is
meaningful to me.
Thinking about my work, creating art, and how people interpret the
world through their tools. The various possible meanings of
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Lately, watching a movie. Sometimes I'm dancing.
We've played board games with friends, and hung out at a dive bar.
Going to a concert ... Throwing a barn burner of a party: they tell
me I was defying gravity and asked everyone to dance at the last
one. Then they showed me pictures.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I laughed when I turned 42 because I knew I would have the answer
for one year, unfortunately I'm rapidly approaching the year of
imperfection. These days I'm crying about snow a lot, but heading
to the islands so it's not all bad...
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'm really busy. I'm sorry, but it's true, and I'm tired of
pretending even with the few messages I get with here.
1. You have patience, I'm super happy to respond, but it's rarely
2. You are a really hot guy with a super attitude. Yup, I'm
interested. If you can figure out the literary puzzle and contact
me on grinder, it will go quick, love them smarts.
3. You are a dominant woman. I'm honestly switch with a strong
dom/sadist angle, but I switch as hard as I give. I see no reason
to hedge. Not necessary, but fun...
4. You are awesome. No other reason necessary.
The old stuff...
You're looking for someone to get out and have a good time with
traipsing around Seattle, or hiking in the mountains. Perhaps you
think winter Kayak camping in the San Juan Islands sounds awesome,
curled up in a double sleeping bag hiding from the rain.
You want to know more about knots, or not.
