My self-summary
I'm open and straightforward. I'm accepting and seek to understand people and connect with them. I genuinely like new and different experiences and seek them often. One of my life goals is to be able to appreciate and enjoy as many things as possible; quite possibly including you.

Despite OKC being a website designed to foster relationships, I don't see many people talk about the kind of relationship they are looking for. If a relationship can be described as an embrace, then I want us to simultaneously hug, tickle, and stare eye to eye. I am looking for someone who is so happy and comfortable when they are alone, that they want to share that existence with someone else.

If you ask me to meet you and talk with you, I will.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a serial entrepreneur and have founded several Internet startups over the past decade. I am currently managing product development at a company I co-founded about two years ago. I have a great passion for building things; creating a business is mostly my partners purview.

Since moving to Monterey, I spend a lot of time developing my relationship with the Ocean. I enjoy snorkeling and surfing/boogie boarding, kayaking, taking long beach walks, beach bonfires, and tide-pooling.

Recently I am enthralled with contact juggling. With eyes closed its instant meditation.

I am learning to play the dulcimer in hopes that I can manage a duet with my Mom.

I am a person who feels a strong desire to be doing something of consequence and be actively and intentionally living my life. Equally I feel a desire to be very still and reflective and to observe the motion of the world around me.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not sure . . . do people notice me at all?

Sometimes I wear a bright yellow vest that people tend to comment on. When dancing, new partners tell me I have a very light touch.

If I'm not wearing the vest or dancing, then I just don't know.

The six things I could never do without
- human connection, shared understanding/experience - cathection
- feeling a connection to nature and wildness
- laughter, humor, levity
- the ability to let go
- hope
- the feeling you have when grasping that we exist on a space rock in the midst of the vast universe - humility and awe
- the momentary allure of samsara - desire
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- Creating a Bluegrass band that plays Phillip Glass music; BlueGlass. - We are all individuals living our life as part of an imagined collective.
- What it would be like to experience life as more of a 'long exposure shot' instead of an ongoing 'snapshot'.
- If any two 'random' people could truly love one another and make one another happy, if they were both willing to completely devote themselves to doing so.
- A documentary/art film I want to make about all the experiences I have had walking on the beach.
On a typical Friday night I am
doing what I tend to do on most every night. I like for every night to have elements of spending time with people (either by being physically together, or by having a conversation), enjoying some type of entertainment (book, music, movie), doing an activity (walking, dancing, climbing), having a good meal and some drinks, and cultivating gratitude.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When you are close to me, you can hear my heart beat.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 26–37
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
any of this resonates with you.

- Do any human beings ever realize life while they live it -- every, every minute?
- That a couple should be willing to watch their lives go by from within the cage of marriage, without acting on outside sexual impulses, is a miracle of civilization and kindness for which both ought to feel grateful every day. Spouses who remain faithful to each other should recognize the scale of the sacrifice they are making for their love and for their children, and should feel proud of their valor.
- We're all of us children in a vast kindergarten trying to spell God's name with the wrong alphabet blocks.
- Sonder.
- The happiest of people dont necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything they have.
- The path to heaven doesn't lie down in flat miles. It's in the imagination with which you perceive this world, and the gestures with which you honor it.
- Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves . . . do not seek answers which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them and the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.
- Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.
- Trying to be happy by accumulating possessions is like trying to satisfy hunger by taping sandwiches all over your body.
