A Midwestern native transplanted to the Promised Land followed more
recently by a move inland for work. I have now moved back to
Berkeley but will continue to work inland during the week; I've
finally joined commuter culture.
I tend to be a bit quirkier than I appear on the surface but I'm
not too hard to get along with. I've also found that I'm actually
much more sociable and talkative than I ever thought, although I
tend to start slowly and don't always do my best impression when
first meeting people.
I have found the balance I crave in relationships via consensual
and honest polyamory. I also enjoy what some would call kink,
although it's not a requirement for me in every relationship.
I am recently married and very happy about that. There are a number
of outstanding people with whom I share various degrees of physical
and emotional closeness with the full knowledge and consent of my
wife, who is also polyamorous and involved with some outstanding
people too. I'm happy to make new friends and not opposed to
friendship evolving into something more if the chemistry is
Some people call me Dr. PeePee...those people being individuals
with profiles on fetlife or who have been involved in the SF kink
scene. It's not about an interest in watersports in case you are
What I’m doing with my life
Finally have the job I've been training to do all this time and I
am quite pleased...and daunted at the same time.
Personally I'm cultivating great friendships and experiencing the
many good things in life.
I’m really good at
I'm a good cook and I like making food for friend(s). I'm pretty
good at scholarly discourse and telling stories too.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm pretty reserved the first time I meet people...not so great at
first impressions. But once I find some common ground I'm pretty
easy to relate to.
If I am wearing a shirt without a collar the real first thing
people notice is the big chain around my neck.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like graphic novels (Hellboy, Y the Last Man, Alan Moore's Swamp
Thing, Sandman, Ex Machina are recent favorites), comedies, Sci-Fi
and fantasy movies. My favorite book is The Prophet by Kahlil
Gibran. I also have a collection of books of folk-tales from around
the world and have really enjoyed the books of Haruki Murakami.
More recently i've been into Yukio Mishima...i go for fluffy fun
literature too though, recently read the first four George Martin
books, have not watched the show however.
I like virtually all kinds of food, Mexican is my stand-by, Indian
was my favorite but I think I am more into Japanese now. I'm pretty
eager to try new things in general and that definitely applies to
I don't watch TV and seldom see movies although I enjoy them...most
times I wind up going to the Castro theater for movies to see
something at a film fest or an old classic.
As far as music goes I am pretty open to most types but electronic
is my favorite for routine listening. I tend to gravitate towards
hard dance, techno, and occasionally dubstep...there are times when
lounge or ambient are entirely appropriate too.
The six things I could never do without
Internets, eroticism, a decent kitchen, intellectual stimulation,
emotional affection, a good book or two to read every night
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What's next, new adventures, work stuff. Recently i have been
totally preoccupied with gardening and landscaping the places i
On a typical Friday night I am
Variable. It's usually my chill night for dinner, drinks, or maybe
a movie. Saturday tends to be the night for going out and
seeing/doing things which may or may not include a party, an event,
or some other such thing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The first time I took the Dating Persona Test I was rated "The last
man on Earth"! Fortunately I am in a better mood since moving out
You should message me if
you want to.
