Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I often write advertising copy, helping to sell everything from
race car suspension springs to laser printer toner. But as a
precise wordsmith, I often can't settle on the proper language to
I can be totally fulfilled experiencing life's adventures alone,
but I feel that happiness isn't truly real unless shared. This is a
borrowed concept from literature (and film) but it's essentially
what is driving my quest for a partner. I'm seeking a friend to
share with and rely on - and be there dependably for them as well.
Mutual motivation for us to be better people, infividulally and
together... always while having a laugh!
No games. No deception. No stress. Let's finish the 3rd act with
excitement and write the 4th together in tandem.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I run my own design and advertising company. This takes up a
considerable chunk of my life. But I still find the time to have
fun - whether it be out in the woods on my bike, or at a gallery in
I doubt there are many guys who can climb Holiday Valley on their
bike in the morning, use their Albright Knox membership, then dance
to some live music - all on the same day. Especially at 49. So if
you think that number means I'm an old guy - just try and keep up
I work hard to play hard. Maintain my house and garden. And save up
for traveling the world. I'm looking for a semi-off kilter partner
to share it all with.
I also try to stay grounded with meditation and periods of
peacefulness. I'm proud of my vegetarianism and the non-violence
that encompasses it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

- Running my design business

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I dress well, perhaps? And that I change my hairstyle (and
sometimes facial hair a lot). I'm blessed/cursed with a chia-like
ability to sprout a beard in a manner of hours. :)
And that I'm usually about to hurry off to do something interesting
(outside activity, art show, concert, sporting event, beer tasting,
All that and my piecing blue eyes! (and the cat hair on my jacket)

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- Macintosh computer (can't work and earn a living without

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I can improve myself, my business and my interpersonal
relationships. Politics. Philosophical musings. What cool shite I
want to do next! My next travel destination. The heath of my aging
My next meal. My next beer. My next text to a friend.
Solutions for my various clients marketing challenges.
... and what is going through my cats' tiny, walnut sized brains
when they're dreaming.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I'm not prepping for a strenuous Saturday morning excursion
(hike, bike, kayak, XC ski, etc) I usually am out enjoying some
local music (I have MANY friends who are talented musicians that
love to see play out) or an art exhibit. If not - I can be found
savoring a craft beer at Blue Monk, Coles or Pizza Plant.
Of course, Fridays make for great "date nights" too. Dinner out, a
movie, or walk in the park... It's all good when your with the one
you can't wait to see at the end of a long work week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like to listen to my cats eat. Weird, but cute, no?
