The two largest passions in my life are being outside looking for animals (with the goal to photograph them) and producing records. Thankfully I can say that due to a recent job change I'm now working in a field related to one of my passions and I'm incredibly thankful for that development. Oh, and travel... though my travel is nearly entirely related to looking for animals and with the goal of photographing them (Peru last year, Borneo next).
I'm a guy... no, not just a male, but a guy. I'm a natural morning person. It is far more likely for me to be up before 6am than past midnight. I like gardening and pickling. I have a thing for country fairs, flea markets, Wisconsin and Vermont. I'm often too weird for norms and too norm for people outside the mainstream.
I would like to meet a down to earth, but not entirely normal (I shudder at the word) person to get to know. You are cool. You have your own thoughts. You don't live or speak in cliches: work hard/live hard, the glass is half full, as at home in a cocktail dress as in jeans and a ball cap, seeking a partner in crime, GAAAAH!!! STOP IT! Be real. Real is awesome, cliches are bogus and a total turn off. I know who I am and what I'm about at this point (for the most part, though I'm trying to push it) and most importantly, I like who I am and where I'm at in my life. In general, if you're looking for someone to add to your existing social circle and to chop veggies and drink wine with while prepping for a dinner party, I'm not your person. On the other hand, if you're looking for someone to get out and about with, to explore, hike, camp, day trips, run/play tennis/etc., see bands, then we may be a match.
I know it's all the rage now, but I'm just not a foodie or wine drinker. Oh, I've gone to and enjoyed well enough the decent places in Boston (Craigie, Island Creek, Neptune, Bergamot, TW Food, etc) and while they were fine (Bergamot was pretty great actually) honestly I'd rather be at a dive place for a burger/pizza or an ethnic hole in the wall.
In the grand scheme, I don't have a type or a specific purpose. I'm looking for chemistry and taking things where they go. I don't couple for the sake of coupling and I'm perfectly fine being single as I'm not the type to get lonely or need people do things with. So, if I do enter a relationship, it is because I adore the person I'm seeing.
