Just your basic simple complex guy here. Fun, energetic and responsible, I've also have had to look at the dark side and make peace, hopefully while not taking myself too seriously. I do realize I am an earnest soul, but tend toward the silly early and often perhaps to compensate for my cynical bone. Athletic and a part-time nature boy, I respect all life forms though I will kill a rodent that crosses the border. Not an academic or intellectual but smart about some things and can contribute to a lot of conversations, even if it's just a one liner.
Like a lot of us, I've had a few lives and careers. Currently I have a gig with a fair amount of responsibility that pays the bills and allows me some space and time to pursue things that feed me. I write and play music and also have a background in the theater and sketch comedy/original musical comedy. Still do children's theater every summer. Have a lot of room for volunteer work and service in my life. I am not defined by my job, but I have one. And I'm in a band, man.
As for dating...not in any hurry after all we've been through but feel open minded. Meeting for coffee after a bit of communication seems reasonable to me.
