I'm a man continually in the pursuit of the soulful--whether it's in my relationships, my work and art, or my fun. I'm very much a modern man with a lot of old school values; dignity, honor and integrity matter a hell of a lot to me, even if there's little that's conventional about me.
I'm a dirty sweet champion of chivalry who knows an amazing woman when I encounter one and knows how to treat her accordingly. I love real and loathe pretentious; reality, not theory; style, not trends; Goddesses, not princesses. (I very much revere and worship the Divine Feminine.)
Rome, New Orleans, Paris, Brooklyn, Northern California and Burning Man (yes, Burning Man) are the places on earth that I feel most at home. I laugh often--deeply, irreverently, sometimes profanely, and I can find the humor in practically anything. And while I can be cynical about some things, I'm never cynical about the transformative power of love. Even when it hurts.

Food: Anything made with love. Except raisins. I hate raisins. Bad experience when I was 4. I never got over it.
Almost Definite Dealbreakers: You passionately loving the Dave Matthews Band, Broadway musicals and/or Ayn Rand. I find them each to be somewhere in between horrible and insufferable, and in my experience, they signify a major lack of compatibility. No judgments, we're just almost definitely not a match.
A top of the line Nikon.

A connection to Spirit, Magic, and Soul.

How to navigate a post-modern world when I don't really care much for post-modernism.
Leaving New York and heading west.
One other thing: When you click on the "personality" part of my profile, pay attention to it. I can't speak for OK Cupid's algorithm for everyone, but they sure got me pretty much right. Yes, that also means the "more kinky" part.
