I work as a photographer and found my first camera at a bus stop when I was 24. I decided at 27 to prove it possible to make a living from taking pictures within 1 year and now consider that to be the single best decision of my life – I’m grateful to still be generating my income from being creative (I also used to build very large sculptures from scrap and retired from that side of my life 10 years ago to concentrate on photography, but have started creating installations again in the last couple of years and now have a large public interactive installation on display in NYC every summer).
I often listen to music and with 130,000 songs in the hard drive it could probably be said I have eclectic taste - my sense of humour leans towards dry - Harold & Maude is one of my favourite movies.
I've been vegetarian for over 25 years and spent 3 years in my mid 20's meditating for 1 hr every morning and 1 hr every evening - I no longer meditate in a formal sense, but that discipline gave me a solid foundation, perspective and awareness that I still carry as I walk through my life today.
I tend to trust my intuition more than my intellect - though enjoy exercising my intellect on a daily basis - I read voraciously - a lot of biographies as people and their stories fascinate me - I also read Vanity Fair every month and 3 websites daily for news as I like to know what is happening in the world...
I have always lived life as an adventure and seen it as filled with potential to be fulfilled - and am grateful I have had the opportunity to see a good part of that potential fulfilled to this time. I believe in the depth of life, the depth of spirit and have always been interested in people, what they do and more importantly, what motivates them to do the things they do. I have mixed with a wide variety of people, from wealthy and famous to street people and though I've seen plenty of dark things in the world I still believe in people more than objects...adventure more than fear...solutions more than problems...the glass half full etc etc...
If you believe in being a 'partner in crime' and are looking for something with substance, then feel free to get in touch. At the same time I am also open to building new friendships and meeting new partners to interact with in this great Bay Area....
And for those who find such things of interest, I am a double Scorpio, with all that entails…*s*….
Movies in no particular order: Harold and Maude, Diva, Time Bandits, Betty Blue, Lord Of The Rings, Run Lola Run, Lock Stock, The Matrix, Amerikan History X, Traffic, The Secretary, no horror but lots of foreign/art house/intelligent films as well as ones that make me laugh out loud.....
TV: Only watch the shows that set the standards - Breaking Bad, The Wire, Carnivale, Boardwalk Empire, Deadwood, Game Of Thrones, Sons Of Anarchy, Mad Men, Homeland, The Prisoner (UK 60's show), Twin Peaks, The Sopranos, Oz, West Wing, Entourage, Trailer Park Boys, The Simpsons, The Daily Show, The News....
Books: Read a lot of biographies as people and their stories always fascinate - truth is often stranger than fiction. Wordsmiths: William Gibson; Irvine Welsh; Steinbeck etc Cartoons: Maus; Frank Miller etc. Picture makers: LaChappelle; Eugene Smith; Cartier-Bresson; Beaton; Corbijn; Helmut Newton etc
