My self-summary
so I am here to stay open to the opportunity of meeting people local to the places I travel, to hang out with, have fun and maybe creatively collaborate with, if we are compatible in that way.

I have met a couple of good friends on this site, and have had fun Casual, platonic encounters..so I am hopeful for more of that.

I'm in a relationship.
What I’m doing with my life
trying stuff
I've been living out of a little suitcase for 4+ years, with a very flexible approach to where I am and what I do. I have been living and travelling in many parts of Australia, North and South America in that time. I guess it's been a very 'go with the flow' period of my life, where I have been privileged to experience many different ways of living and very open to taking new directions.

I have been in Halifax 6 months now, which is the longest I have been planted somewhere in forever, which is a challenge. Living here with a partner, working a semi-creative semi-monotonous day job, paying rent..getting back into hobbies that I have always enjoyed but trying to tread a balance as I'm not going to be in this situation terribly long.

My main hobby is art photography, and i am always looking to photograph people(not head shots or glamour shots..I'm likely to want to use your body in some creative composition or document you in your home environment or a state of intimacy or just use your flesh tones in a texture or colour experiment..as I love design I might venture into something a bit fashiony..but that is as about commercial as I get) , so if that is something you are open to, id love to hear from you.

I am also becoming less and less interested in a social life that is based around going out and drinking, or rather evermore interested in any other number of activities beyond that one. I definitely drink, but I really crave interactions or friendships that involve genuine conversations, and inspiring brainstorming, and outdoor adventures and making or building stuff..and less being in loud, crowded places and getting drunk.
I’m really good at
Not getting too attached
Spending time alone
Challenging myself socially (it's all a challenge..I'm a lone wolf really, but social contact can be really attractive sometimes)
Adapting
Making good things happen without going by the book
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
filling this stuff out little by little..but then again, i might not go beyond this section..

favourite musical acts/artists include -
psychic tv, throbbing gristle, wire, morphine, suicide, essendon airport, rowland s howard, arthur russel, townes van zandt, karen dalton, odetta, sun ra, moondog, ry cooder, michael gira, congo norvell, harold budd, patsy cline, tim hecker, talking heads..

food -
Sweet with salt, spice with sour, spicy everything and bitter greens.
The six things I could never do without
Vitamin d.
A strong sense of autonomy.
Awareness of the existence of the many many people who are much more wonderful and accomplished and giving than myself.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything.

How to be a better person.
On a typical Friday night I am
Honestly..I work 12 hours on friday as of recent times I'm usually tired and want alone time, but If I can perk myself up I like going to art events or visiting with friends..otherwise I try to enjoy a delicious meal, watch films and go to bed early so I can make the most of the weekend.
You should message me if
You are actually in the same city as I am. I have plenty of in real life friends and family that live in places far away, whom I can only contact online, but I struggle to find the time to dedicate to that, so I'm not looking for online relationships with new people.

you want to..but I will say huge initial contact turn offs ( I just won't respond) for me include addressing me as sweetheart/hun/darling or any other diminishing 'pet names', a singular hey or hi or wassup, and sexual propositions.
