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, but never seem to do it in Portland. Quick-- What is the scientific result for knee slide + parquet floor + polyester? Anyone? :-) hint: measured in Neutons and Dolorimeters.

Misadventures and me, we be mates! I have been robbed by monkeys. Though lately I'm beginning to wonder, "who hasn't?"
I hope you like to laugh. And are not a monkey. ;-)

Food is love. I love to create and cook and hold court in the kitchen at a party. I steal avocado from the salad bowl while it is being made. I will help myself to bites from your plate. Why not share a plate and save time? :-P

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.

I steered my broken car to an acquaintance to help his small business. It mostly works now...but I am happy it helped him and the relationship is more important.

And I am also serious, and still, and quietly thinking when I am grappling with my craft. This is mistaken for being unhappy, or down. Mmm, my artist friend would say, "Making art is not always a happy process."
What I’m doing with my life
Helping people find their voice and grow into their aspirations. Trying to be kinder, myself. Getting smaller, trying to figure out how this tiny living thing works...-grumble-

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
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile, one of my many laughs, volume :)

...or if in writing, that I don't really follow a consistent style. Impatience is my excuse.
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 and Depeche Mode.

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
new recipes to try
my kiddos
places to explore
a few close friends
new stories to tell
salt and a sharp knife
a smiling woman to wink at
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- Ideas of artistic voice, soul, potential, positive psychology
- The quiet power in Patience and letting things unfold...something to aspire to
- Serendipity and discovery and how stats and questions get in the way of the magic. It'd be much more rewarding to ask and answer so many of these OKC questions live than to try and predict someone's awesomeness before even sending them a message. Yet I too have been a stats junkie. :-/
On a typical Friday night I am
still recouping from a big Thursday night, wishing someone would call 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 in falsetto.

My personality graph feels spot on except for the "Less Lonely." I guess it doesn't show on the surface. :)
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 30–42
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • 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 liberal, have broad tastes with an appetite for life, and are more outgoing than quiet and shy on balance.

...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.

I am not here looking for true love. I've experienced GREAT love twice and hope to make it again. But not every meeting has that potential. Some become great friendships if allowed to develop without pressure. Some are merely meetings of kindred spirits. Nothing wrong with any. So while I am open to the magical, every relationship starts the same- as a chance to meet another fun soul and begin the basis for a friendship.
