i grew up in far-nor-cal, spent some years in seattle, 13 years in the bay now. i'm quiet unless i have something to say. i'm genuine & i get back up when i fall. i like the things we all like.. i'm pretty even keeled. i ain't all that perfect, but i know it & im working on it. i like most extremes. i been around the block.
What I’m doing with my life
transforming experience into gold. I've traveled a bit, been working on the road doing construction. i think i'm done with that. school is keeping me very busy again. music is big for me, collecting, performing, live shows. healthy living too, organic & exercise. i'm interested in a LOT of stuff, everything really. eclectic not eccentric. a simple non-simpleton.
I’m really good at
giving massages, skipping rocks, fixing cars, camping &
backpacking, kicking ass & chewing bubblegum.
The first things people usually notice about me
that i'm instantly forgettable. my bulging personality. i'm tall, i'm on the quiet side, but i'm funny, absurdist dirty humor. probably some rad music somewhere in there.

The six things I could never do without
i've done without, but:
the open road
this paddle ball, this chair, this lamp.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my jouissance & the elusive objet petit a. the myths of Eros & Psyche, the Fisher King, & Tristan & Iseult. the difference between love & romance.
which two things i can do today from the list of a hundred things i need to do. sleeping less, healthing more, commuting less, learning more, romance, bass grooves, transcending, optimizing, the fjords of norway, traveling, romance, green tech, favorite lyrics, old conversations, romance.
On a typical Friday night I am
at a show or a house party or a divebar or reading a book or starting a project or something else.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i'm just a bit introverted. i don't really have a 'type.' i'm a loner, dottie, a rebel. you don't wanna get mixed up with a guy like me. im open to a lot of...stuff.
You should message me if
you let the good times roll.
you get the same jokes as me.
you get the jokes the same as me.
you'll teach me to dance.
you think jealousy is lame.
you'd wanna see a show.

you're nerdy & dirty.
you, uh.. well, yu know..
