My self-summary
“The universe is not made of atoms; it's made of tiny stories.”

And so are we. Here are some of mine...

I love to dance. What is the scientific result for knee slide + parquet floor + polyester? Hint: measured in Neutons and Dolorimeters.

The best bits seem to happen off trail! I have been robbed by monkeys. Though lately I'm beginning to wonder, "who hasn't?" I hope you like to laugh, and are the right sort of monkey.

Cooking for friends gives me endless satisfaction for the joy, creating, and technical challenge. Favorite party spot: holding court over the kitchen island. Who stole the avocado from the salad bowl before it hit the table??? ;-)

I am a talker. I talk out my thoughts and dreams. I also talk zombie. But only sometimes in the night...I wonder if morning yuck-mouth is the taste of brains? I have eaten brains. ...a terrible terrible error reading a Parisian menu. They were delicious. You: a talker with a smartypants brain would be delicious company!

Boarding a jetplane is still matter how hard they try to make it feel like a bus. I've traveled the world for fun and work, and ever will.

Once or twice a week I am surrounded by twenty or thirty colorful people barnstorming through Portland's urban wilds and hidden worlds. Come join me!
What I’m doing with my life
Helping people find their voice and grow into their aspirations. Trying to be kinder, myself. Placing my bets on humanity.

Being a trainer and facilitator for business groups and leaders. My goal is to keep fooling the world into letting me do this for as long as I can, because it doesn't feel like work!

Raising two marvelous daughters part-time, no drama with the momma. Doing what I can to encourage them to always be dreamers and creators.
I’m really good at
Idiot savant talent with pop trivia references, meeting strangers in lines and launching instant adventures, storytelling, making people laugh in that way that hurts, using my lips, acting like a Nat Geo photog with my no-flash 3G iPhone, games not involving throwwwwwing, finding a big word for a simple idea, fitting both feet in my mouth as a party trick, feeding sixty runners on a cold night, hanging in there, loyalty
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile, one of my many laughs, volume, I get along with just about anybody, i am probably talking with a stranger in a non-stranger way. :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Love Indian, Sushi, NY Pizza, street tacos, FISH!

Love to talk about a great movie, love more talking about a terrible movie over coffee and pie after. Bonus if you like sci-fi.

My best friend is a Dutch DJ. I am a happy boy. :) I am deliriously happy dancing to Eurotrash beats, grooving to 80's, disco, and singing along to 70's folk, or feelin' The Cure.

If it's not reading for work, then it is for escape and understanding the sciences. Bonus if you like sci-fi/fantasy.
The six things I could never do without
my kiddos
places to explore
salt and a sharp knife
a few really close friends
a hand to hold, shoulder to lean into
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- Ideas of artistic voice, soul, potential, positive psychology
- Patience and letting things unfold...something to aspire to
On a typical Friday night I am
Hoping someone calls me up for drinks and foolishness
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ogni Cuore Ha Il Suo Segreto

I will admit to car-singing unselfconsciously.

I will actually admit to anything. Haha
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 30–44
  • Located anywhere
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
...You like to talk and laugh, can get along well with a dashing gent who tilts far liberal, have broad tastes with an appetite for life, and are more outgoing than you are quiet and shy.

...Life is short and you understand that good timing is so fleeting. Just say, "Hi." Words don't have to be perfect and witty to start. They will find themselves as we go.

...You see the magic is in discovering all the answers to the questions and not predicting a match Gattaca style. To that end, I'm going to experiment and take my questions private and see what the result is.

Hey - If you you stop by or msg and I don't reply quickly it's either "life" or just that I have a date on the calendar and I like to approach these things one at a time.
