I'm all about balance; in the way I live, love and what I want out of relationships. A professional in a creative industry, I love my work but am cool with leaving it at the office. I identify as polyamorous and live a healthy non-monogamous lifestyle wherein I enjoy connections (friends and lovers) not limited by conventional standards. Not sure what I mean? Ask me.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm co-owner of a marketing firm that I'm very proud of. I've invested over fifteen years in growing my company and I'm excited about it's future. Meanwhile I have adult children that I enjoy great relationships with. I have always loved being a dad and that continues to be important to me. I write, dabble in various creative endeavors, travel, enjoy connections with a wonderful group of friends, read a variety of fiction and non-fiction, and love opportunities for conversation and exploration.
I’m really good at
I'm a good listener. I am generally able to empathize with and understand people. I'm also a good communicator via the spoken word or writing, which also extends to being able and willing to articulate what I'm feeling and what I need in a relationship. Of course I have my foibles and potential blind spots too.
I work well with people and I'm creative. I manage a creative company and I'm an author. Both are things I really enjoy and take pride in. I've been a theatre professional in the past and I'm likely to step back on stage again at some point. Meanwhile I still get my theatrical fix by directing from behind the camera.
People, communication and creativity... that's the sum up.
The first things people usually notice about me
My long hair and my smile. Both are ever present.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to read, enjoy going to movies and the theatre and I can't imagine life without music and good food!
I read a lot of historic fiction. The works of C.S. Forester, Patrick O'Brien and others. The last excellent movie I saw was The Imitation Game, the last terrible movie I saw was the new Conan the Barbarian. Well... at this writing at least.
I like all sorts of movies except horror films.
In music I listen to a variety of current music, indie and classic rock.
The six things I could never do without
Love, laughter, creative expression, friendship, passion, integrity and good companions.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Alternative lifestyles, social justice, gender and racial equality, history, the people around me, and what's happening right now - right here.
On a typical Friday night I am
With a date or hanging at home entertaining myself by writing or
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm willing to admit quite a lot... just not here.
You should message me if
You're fun, a good person and into interesting conversations about life, love and other stuff.
Artists, actors, people with stories to share, those with interests in common with mine, and those living (or interested in) alternative lifestyles are especially welcome.
