I was raised in a very small town in Vermont by college professors,
went to college in Vermont and spent my 20s pursuing a vague dream
of making it in the music industry. I snapped out of that in time
to foster a decent career in advertising sales and relegated music
to a passionate hobby, but I still write and produce music
regularly for myself and other artists and even play live now and
then. It's a big part of my life.
My love life and career have taken me to some great cities and I
feel very lucky in that regard. I have lived in Sevilla, NYC, DC
and SF as well as various towns in Vermont. I miss the east coast
quite a bit in the summer and wish I had the means to spend more
time there. I still love CA too much to leave it though.
I prefer strong friendships and close bonds with people over
groups, cliques, or scenes and that puts me slightly at odds with
the general gay mindset. As I have gotten a little older, I feel my
need for acceptance has faded along with a simultaneously
increasing tendency towards introversion. Not sure what that is
about! But if you get a few drinks in me, you never know what can
I'm easily persuaded by authentic, grounded men, masculine guys
with big hearts. The masculine and more traditionally male behavior
and personality (as opposed to a "look") is probably the strongest
characteristic I find attractive in other men beyond their physical
appearance. It does not limit my friendships in any way, but it
does seem to do so when it comes to sexual/emotional
Ultimately, I don't want to waste the precious time I have left on
this planet and I'm very curious and interested in embracing life
and new friends. If that leads to something more, then it's icing
on the cake. I would love to hear from like-minded guys.

Me Talk Pretty One Day, A Man in Full, Dune, Neon Bible, The Sound
& The Fury, The Ocean at the End of the Lane. I read so many
books it's hard to choose. I just like to read. Movies I will watch
anytime qualify as faves: Star Wars, any Christopher Guest film,
any Pixar, Monty Pythons, Children of Men, After Hours... I don't
watch a lot of TV but I enjoy Game of Thrones, Torchwood, Louie,
Being Human, Top Chef and Chopped. I am a rampant music buyer but
lean to indie rock, melodic progressive. Not into what passes for
pop music these days.
