Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
At first I seem to many, very contradictory; an altruistic
misanthrope, very logical minded yet personally emotional, etc. but
don't let that throw you.
Personally, I'm very dedicated to those who are important to me,
honest (almost to a fault), a very good listener. I tend to be a
very tactile person, especially with my partner, expect a lot of
hugs and such.
My sense of humor is a bit off-center, a mix of dark and goofy (but
not stupid), often engaging in word-play, pop-culture references
and the like. Playfulness often dominates my life, (you HAVE to
have fun!). I tend to be somewhat of a geek (but not a dweeb),
interested in tech and science.
I am a very casual person, both in demeanor and dress (though not
sloppy or rude), a t-shirt and shorts dresser. While I agree that a
certain level of decorum is essential in society, life is too short
to worry about minutia. Function above form.
The arts are very important to me, with the exception of dance. I
am a voracious music fan; rock, jazz, classical, blues, reggae and
more. Sculpture, painting, architecture, gastronomy? Absolutely.
Admittedly, I don't read as much as I'd like, as I do utilize the
internet for light reading and entertainment.
I feel that being open-minded, honest and respectful are very
important qualities in a person (myself and others).
Feel free to ask about anything not covered here.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I seem to be in a bit of a holding pattern, waiting for the new
chapter in my life to begin. Can you help me turn that page?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Fairly competent in the kitchen.
I've been told that I am a good masseur (though I'm out of

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been told by some that it's my eyes, referred to as " Very
expressive and often easy to tell whether [I am] serious, teasing,
etc. " and "Big brown puppy eyes".
Another says "... someone who is confident in himself. At first,
[I] appear to be stand-offish, however, [they] know that is just
because [I can be] shy until [I] feel comfortable with the

I really don't have a go-to author, I'm currently reading a lot of
nonfiction, history and biographies, but Steven King is great for
an entertaining, mindless read.
I like a lot of film styles, though not big on
let's-blow-a-lot-of-stuff-up action genre or French art film. I do
enjoy classics from the 40s and 50s, Scorsese, Kubrick, Lynch,
cheeze/camp (Zardoz), etc. Some favorites include Taxi Driver,
Arsenic & Old Lace, A Clockwork Orange, Monkey Business, and
Blue Velvet. Animation holds a special place in my heart, Classic
Warner Bros., Brothers Quay, Norman McLaren among many
Currently, there are not many TV shows I watch. News, cooking shows
and Fox animation constitute my current viewing habits. Past shows
I've liked include Star Trek, Twilight Zone, X-Files, Twin Peaks,
M. Python, Black Adder.
Musically, I'm all over the place (see above). Top albums
Fripp & Eno - Evening Star
Sex Pistols - Never Mind...
John Coltrane - Blue Trane
LV Beethoven - Symphony #9 (still looking for the perfect version
Jeff Beck - Wired
Scraping Foetus off the Wheel - Nail
Jimi Hendrix Experience - Electric Ladyland
As far as food goes, there is no overall type/style I dislike. I'm
pretty adventurous (I'll try most anything once).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Other than the obvious air/water/food group, I would say:
Internet (I admit it)
A raison d'être (why merely exist?)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Sometimes, Walter Mitty-like fantasies.
Perhaps "heavy" philosophical matters (nature of God)
Life, the Universe and everything ;-)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

I once posed nude for a Spencer Tunick photo in the '90s.
