I am of southern origin, but by no means a redneck. I posses some southern ways, but they are extensions of good manners, and the giddiness that comes after blowing something up. I am well traveled courtesy of my time in the Navy. After fulfilling my obligation, I got all high on Ayn Rand novels, and decided to go into business for myself. (fwiw-I am no longer the proselytizing "randroid" of my early 20's)
I am a photographer. My work is here: www.danielbergeron.com
I share a live/work space at the Brewery with a tattoo artist who is basically the sister that I never had. (She refers to me as her "lesbro") Critical thinking rocks my world, and I cannot suffer conspiracy theorists. I carry a strong disdain for religion and homeopathy. Vaccine deniers make me angry. I've gone to the Playa a couple of times, but NOT for burning man. I am not a burner, but some of my good friends are. That said, they are the more science oriented types. I can't take people in furry boots seriously.
Sometimes my life gets pretty weird. I mean this in a good way.
Aside from my vocation, much of my life is tied to motorcycles. I have a couple of ratty Ducatis (900ss & 748), and I love them dearly. I recently picked up a dirt bike, so off grid adventure trips are in the works, as well. On Thursdays, I hang out with a local motorcycle club, with a devotion most reserve for church. I also race F1, F2, and vintage class sidecars, as a "monkey" (passenger/ballast).
I am a proud hedonist. I take my pleasure very seriously. I am extremely lassaiz-faire in my attitude toward sex/sexuality, and quite comfortable in my own skin. GGG, and all that jazz. Know that I am Polyamorous. This is not up for debate. I realize this is probably a deal breaker for anyone wanting more than a quick bit of fun. This is a big part of who I am, and I need someone of similar mindset, if we are going for the long haul. I am also very affectionate, in the day to day.
I got into canyoneering, about 3 years ago. My current skill level is "functional/willing to do it without having a panic attack". I have been meeting new canyoneers through meetup, so my skill sets are growing. Once in a blue moon, I climb. I'll put those uncomfortable shoes to use, when Stonghold opens.
