DISCLAIMER: I chose my screen name long before that porn fiction
book became so famous so please don't contact me asking to be
whipped. (It happens). That's at least second-date territory.
Sometimes the name you chose to symbolize the infinite possible
representations of an individual becomes synonymous with masochism,
Rather than define and limit myself for easy consumption, feel free

OK, a few generalities: Midwest-transplant. Musician. Romantic.
Endlessly curious. I value quality over quantity, time over money
and integrity/kindness over everything. I turn my phone off

I can tell you where to get the best coffee in at least 100 cities

If you're an Asian tourist, you most likely mistake me for Conan
O'Brien. It's really not that close, but I understand. We all look
alike to you.

I agree with Duke Ellington when he said there are only two types
of music: good and bad. Some of my favorites range from Stevie
Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Ravel, Charlie Parker, the Strokes, Kings of
Convenience, Prokofiev, Mingus, Jobim and Elis Regina. 50's/60's
Sinatra. Amy Winehouse RIP I'm open to anything as long as my ear
likes it. Always looking to discover new music. Oh, and I have a
slight obsession with records. You know, the real ones.
If I was sure there was a God, I would thank him/her/it/abominable
snow monster everyday for the Daily Show and the Colbert Report.
Ditto for: Arrested Development, Louie, and Curb Your Enthusiasm.
If you know and loved the movie, "Waking Life", what size is your
ring finger? R.I.P. Tim Russert.

I'm on a bit of a non-fiction kick right now. Just finished reading

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity -
"Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then
he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so
anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the
result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he
lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never
Also: the anonymous, de-humanizing, online-catalogue feel to this
site often turns my stomach.
As well as: Does the fact that my favorite winter pastime is
drinking hot chocolate and watching the ice skaters fall on their
asses make me a terrible person? Or just an honest sociologist?
(Please don't suggest ice skating as an activity. While I'd
actually like to, karma has been waiting for that moment for

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'm still trying to find the right balance of working hard for the
possible future while enjoying life as if it could end tomorrow.
I'm looking for someone who keeps life in perspective and has a
passion that they pursue. Someone with a curious disposition and a
kind heart. Someone who looks around and realizes just how
incredibly absurd the world is, then laughs and enjoys it.
Preferably, you don't text at dinner but do always say thank you to
the waiter. The ability to say, "That's a good point" in a heated
debate is an incredibly rare and wonderful personality trait, not
because I want to hear it, but because I can say it. People devoid

Also, if you like dirty, mustachioed hipster guys wearing their
little sisters' jeans, I'm not your guy. I'm a creative/artistic
person who values individuality, I don't need a trendy uniform to
show that. Especially one that cuts off the circulation to my
crotch. Let's go ahead and add "crotch" to the list of words best
NOT used on a dating profile. Crotch.
