Aside from being strikingly handsome, debonair, and successful, I am really just a regular guy.

What I’m doing with my life
I am doing what I love - playing music, dancing, renovating homes [including my own 100 year old house], traveling, going to outdoor festivals, and hanging out with friends. I am pretty involved in a bunch of different activities, but still like to chill out too. One of my passions is photography, especially travel photography. I am a multi-instrumentalist, playing over a dozen instruments [fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandolin, bass, dobro, pedal steel, ...]. I like to work out, doing yoga, pilates, aeorbics, body pump, zumba, etc... or get some good exercise hiking or rafting.

a vegetarian, so I do like Asian food, mexican, Indian, etc.
Read Life of Pi recently, and was impressed by what they did with
such a strange book to make it into a movie.

person, or you would like to meet a fun, interesting guy who likes
to be fairly active. Or just to say hi.
