My self-summary
Strong, handsome, friendly, funny, creative, curious, passionate.

Patient and a good listener.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a lot to be grateful for at home - father of 3 boys, (and thus a herder of cats), embracing the challenge that marriage can be at times, but nurturing it and loving the results. Running a successful professional design practice.

Exploring relationships and redefining what they look like. Looking to meet someone new for fun, for play, to have adventures with and enrich my life.

I love people and the exchange of energy when meeting someone new.
I’m really good at
doing things with my hands....really. Or, finding missing things. Finding something really difficult to master and then immersing myself in that self torture beyond a healthy point - winemaking, watercolor, guitar, golf
The first things people usually notice about me
are my brown eyes and warm nature....but I'm not in the habit of asking. :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Lately, it's the Black Keys, but two minutes later it could be Beethoven, the rawness of The White Stripes, the siren Norah Jones or Tom Waits' grit; the timbre of Eminem's voice, Flamenco, early punk rock and whatever's left in between. I love music with attitude...
The six things I could never do without
How about the things I live for...?

My boys and the indescribable amazement they trigger in me.

Romantic Love

A lover's touch, and the opportunity to express myself back

Lifting and pulling and pushing heavy weights ... pushing through my limits.

The heady perfume of a great glass of wine

Texture in all the senses - tactile, visual, taste...

The weightlessness I feel when ice skating...with hockey skates.

A "personal day" taken from work and spent with my buddies on the golf course, or at a secluded beach along the coast.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the worldly, critical things, while I do the dishes…it's my meditation time.

At other moments of the day it's that all-consuming thing all men...shit, here I go again, think about …

How the very secret to life is repeated in so many things - relationships, parenting, winemaking, cooking, the game of golf…seriously, this is some groundbreaking shit that somebody has to have thought of already.

How ridiculous I sound sometimes.

How to write that first message that will capture your attention
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My wife and I are non-monogamous and solid. We believe that attraction and chemistry with others is natural and exploring other people enriches our lives.
You should message me if
You are in an open-relationship, or single, and OK with open-relationships.

You love to kiss, but are not afraid to bite

You appreciate a quite moment but welcome an f-bomb kinky secret whispered in your ear

You agree the real way to find someone you like is to test that chemistry in person...
