I'm a mid-western boy with good, solid, mid-western values... but
I'm happy to be living on the west coast! Still, I think it was a
great place to grow up and besides, it made me a Packers fan! I
will not, however, wear a cheese head! Grew up in Beverly Hills
which was an education on a variety of levels... I have a very wide
range of interests. The world sometimes strikes me as a kind of
playground with a million fantastic things to do, see or
experience. There are so many things in the world from which the
experience of life may be expanded. Love movies, music, art,
theater, the ocean, the mountains, traveling and the usual
accompaniment of guy stuff, of course, like sports cars,
motorcycles, martial arts, skiing, tennis and scuba diving to name
I'm kind of a Renaissance man, I think. There are so many things I
find interesting and fascinating. The problem is there are only so
many hours in the day and we must prioritize until the next life
comes along. I have some traditional ideas about love and romance
which are best revealed in the tenets of honor and chivalry, when
the knight might express his love of the princess by risking all to
slay the dragon, only bad dragons of course! They are often
misunderstood and unnecessarily maligned, but I digress. I haven't
seen a dragon in years yet there are opportunities aplenty to slay
the proverbial dragon for the love of your life.
And this is NOT to say that a woman is incapable of slaying the
dragon herself, she certainly is and she might well do so with a
style and flair that is infinitely tidier. No, it is about the act
itself, the willingness to lay everything on the line as a measure
of devotion. Perhaps the reason the slaying of the dragon is
romanticized as it is, is because we seldom get to see such acts of
devotion and it is a measure by which we may gauge ourselves.
I love animals and my dogs are some of the best "people" I know.
They are the stalwart emissaries of unconditional love. I love cats
as well though I've lost mine. I love to laugh (who doesn't?) but I
also enjoy the serious and more contemplative side of life. I am
always looking to expand my awareness and understanding of the
universe and actively seek answers to the secrets of life (there's
more than one, you know). That pursuit includes trying to make
myself the best I can be and to make the most of my gifts.
I'm looking for a woman who is my best friend and partner in crime
and everything else but who is also someone I find absolutely
irresistible in every way. I would love her to be someone who makes
me laugh and knows me well enough to know what I'm thinking (some
of the time) and I would like to be able to have intellectual and
philosophical discussions from time to time about the meaning of
life and other popular topics. That can be as sexy and stimulating
as a bikini on the beach. If the world is my playground then she is
my playmate. I'm quite the romantic, been engaged a couple of times
but so far, finding the right girl has eluded me. And so the search
I’m really good at
whatever I set my mind to...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Little Prince, The Martian Chronicles, Illusions, The Origin of
Consciousness and the Breakdown of the Bi-Cameral Mind (I actually
haven't read that yet but one of these days), Citizen Kane,
Braveheart, It's a Wonderful Life, Gladiator, Cinema Paradiso, The
Man in the Moon, Cyrano De Bergerac (Ferrer), Enemy At The Gates,
Seven Pounds, A Christmas Carol (Alistair Sim), Family Man... I
could go on...
The six things I could never do without
...love, sex, skiing, motorcycles, sunsets on the ocean and
mountain top views of the world... also pizza, chinese food and a
Musso & Frank ground beef steak, medium rare with grilled
onions and steak fries... star-filled skies... and a great and
powerful story well told that lifts and inspires one to greater
heights... and so on... Is that more than six?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...the secrets of life. There's more than just one, you know... but
if you must have some details... knowing myself, being the best
person I can be, how to manifest dreams becoming reality and how I
can best make a contribution to help others do all of the same...
On a typical Friday night I am
...at a movie, having dinner with friends or both and hangin' with
the boys (dogs) doin' what they like to do...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
...wouldn't be very private if I admitted it on the internet, now
You should message me if
...you're looking for the love of your life... or would simply like
to have a great time and great conversation about all manner of
things under the sun, the moon and the stars...
