Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"The master in the art of living makes little distinction between
his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his
body, his education and his recreation. He simply pursues his
vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide
whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both."
A few years ago I made a series of extremely "outside the box" -
type life decisions that almost killed me on several occasions, but
that have since borne some amazing fruit. My life has become
wonderfully full and happy over the last few years. Sometimes I
feel like the luckiest guy in the world already - passionate about
work that I find meaningful and endlessly fascinating, and
unapologeticslly free to do only the things that really turn me on.
I enjoy many wonderful and inspiring friendships all around the
world. My work allows me to travel extensively, and professionally,
I split my time between San Francisco, Australia, and
I believe in embracing every moment in life. I have an unquenchable
thirst for adventure, and view every experience as an opportunity
to grow as a person and to enrich my mind, body and soul. Educated,
worldly, and with a generous nature, you will find me open,
sensual, engaging and committed to living life to the
A calm confidence, a relaxed but polished style, extraordinary
professional achievement and yet still a playful, humble, honest
attitude make it natural for me to enjoy helping you discover new
desires or reignite forgotten passions. Moments of fiery intensity,
moments of gentle tenderness, moments of deep connections, moments
of fascination, moments of sheer bliss.

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

eulogy that I would wish to have said at my own funeral ....

"The Universe says simply, but with every
possible complication, 'Existence' and it
neither pressures us nor draws us out, except
as we allow. It all boils down to nothing, and
where we have the means and will to fix our
reference within that flux, then there we are.
Let me be part of that outrageous chaos...
and I am."
"We do not experience time flowing, or passing.
What we experience are differences between
our present perceptions and our present
memories of past perceptions. We interpret
those differences, correctly, as evidence that
the universe changes with time. We also
interpret them, incorrectly, as evidence that
our consciousness, or the present, or something
moves through time.
We exist in multiple versions, in universes
called 'moments'. It is tempting to suppose
that the moment of which we are aware
is the only real one, or is at least a little more
real than the others.
But that is just solipsism.
All moments are physically real.
The whole of the multiverse is physically real.
Nothing else is."

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
1. I spent a few years studying animal behavior, and so if you ask
me nicely I'll explain to you how men online are mostly like
slightly mentally deficient Blue Footed Boobies.
Bonus: If you get me nicely drunk, I *might* even demonstrate to
you the Blue Footed Booby's dance. It's a once in a lifetime
experience let me tell you.
2. I used to be really embarrassed about how pale and redheaded and
skinny I was. I'm over it now, but still, if I ever did have
children, for their sake I'd hope my partner was, say, African or
3. I think that "Irony" has had a good, nay, a Great run (love
y'all. hipsters!) but I truly do believe that the pendulum is now
starting to swing back towards sincerity and the pursuit of
mastery. It's about time!
4. I grew up on hippie communes in California and the Midwest and
then later joined the Army and did multiple combat tours, despite
passionately hating the wars and I still haven't quite figured out
how that all makes sense...
5. When I was about seven, I was licking snow off our farm pump
handle and I got my tongue frozen to it and stood out there in the
snow for like an hour. I talked with a lisp for months after
6. I still sleep with stuffed animals: a Polar Bear, a Tortoise,
and a Platypus.
7. I'm more than a little impressed with how sharp some of the
women on this site are, and I regularly mine your profiles for
music and literature recommendations.
8. I keep finding WHOLE NEW WAYS in which I am a nerd. Lately it's
been having fun rewriting "Buddhist-lite" style self-help books
from a materialist / constructivist / non-Dualist point of view. I
have been able to interest absolutely no one in my endeavors thus
9. At Cornell I excelled at breeding moths! Like everything to do
with sex, it turns out that there's a bit of a trick to it...
10. In the North of Wales there is a mountain called Cader Idris,
or 'The Chair of Arthur'. An ancient Welsh myth holds that whoever
sleeps on the peak of this mountain on the night of the winter
solstice will assuredly awake in the morning either blind, or mad,
or a poet.
As a child I was fascinated by this myth and found it very romantic
and I resolved to give it a try. Finally, when I was seventeen, I
had a chance to spend six months trekking in the UK and so I
hitchhiked to the mountain, finally arriving on the day of the
solstice (with great difficulty… a long tale in itself).
It was a hard climb and a bitter cold night. In retrospect I'm
lucky to have survived. I was enthusiastic but terribly unprepared.
I brought little food or water and had no proper field gear. On the
peak there is an ancient stone hut, more than half ruined. In there
I huddled between the wall and my pack with a small fire burning
and wearing every bit of clothing I had. Finally, despite the cold
and the hard stones, and hunger, and the pain, I dropped off to
sleep from sheer exhaustion.
Just before dawn I awoke, terribly cold, stiff and sore and began
the long hike back down, but you know what? Somehow I just felt
that there was a change… something subtly different about
Well anyway, I'm NOT blind...

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I don't have the time or the desire to date everyone under the sun
anymore, and I have no problem meeting people, so I'm only seeking
a woman who is, in her own way, extraordinary.
I travel a lot, and it can make dating tough, but a fun, warm,
good-hearted companion will always be welcome. Courage, compassion,
and integrity are the cornerstones of my life. Please don't write
to me unless you feel the same way.
I once heard that to be desired is the greatest aphrodisiac. Show
up with your desire in full force, and I will match your passion.
It is my belief that deeply connecting with another is the ultimate
experience that life has to offer.
If… you want to experience the best life can offer. If you want it
If you have a kind soul, an open mind, and are sincerely interested
in making a connection with another fascinating human being, then I
look forward to offering you the same.
Join me on this delicious journey.

secret heroes of the world...)
