Okay, I am the quintessential Berkeleyian, free loving, tree
hugging, flower childing, social radicalist and intellectual
revolutionary. I say this to emphasize the fact that I strive to
keep an open mind and desire to interact with those that share this
I am by no means a "pretty boy" but rather have been described as
ruggedly handsome. I am a sportsman, advocate, activist, and all
around good guy (but I don't wear a white hat). I love children,
animals and root for the underdog, almost without question. I have
formal education as well as street smarts, I enjoy working for the
finer things in life but try not to overindulge or worship material
possessions or the energy they attract.
Life is short and I am looking to enjoy my time with an exceptional
woman. Ideally, I would like a long term relationship, but don't
mind starting out as friends. My friends call me a soft touch
because I am always trying to help people and save the world. I
have a good relationship with myself and am looking to add to that
with the right connection.
What I’m doing with my life
What I am doing with my life? I don't know, ask me after I am dead.
Similar to life, I am quite sure I will have a much more objective
and penetrating perspective on my life in retrospect. And there you
have it, all the answers after we die. Such a pleasant OK Cupid
intro statement, don't you think?
I spend a considerable amount of time reading, too much in fact,
when I should be working to finish my first book. Much like
everything I do, I am biting off way more than I can chew, so if I
am ever able to finish this labor of love, it will be nothing short
of a miracle. Actually, I am working on two books simultaneously
but that is a dog for another day.
I exercise throughout the week, make an effort to eat healthy, and
try to take the time to care about the environment. This means
supporting various campaigns, disseminating information, and in
general, annoying people whenever I get the chance.
I try and balance my energy between working for a better tomorrow
and enjoying the present. To this end, I have spent the better part
of the last two decades volunteering in the arena of youth
I’m really good at
Talking, writing, taking standardized tests, arguments about
philosophy, law, humanities, reciting the connectivity and
relevance of human history, thrift shopping, sailing, swimming,
basketball, disseminating information, being a friend, fighting the
The first things people usually notice about me
3) Eyes (they have been described as deep-set and piercing)
The six things I could never do without
thrift shops, flea markets, yard sales etc.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I like to create balance, I like to focus on the things that
inspire, while also considering the problems of the world. I like
to critique the world and how it is and then expound at great
length at how it should be. I like to make progress toward
uncovering the purpose of humanity, the structure and manifest
beauty of creation and the interconnectedness of all things. I
enjoy a multidisciplinary approach to information and learning,
like juxtaposing the physics, the mathematical nuisances that
underlie and therefore bind the writing of say a Hemingway and/or
Joyce to those underneath the music of Mozart and/or Coltrane
and/or the paintings of Rembrandt or Picasso. I like to explore the
science of spirituality, and the central role of metaphysics in
human history, and world politics. I like to study psychology,
especially Jung and dream interpretation, because I believe the
whole of human history and endeavor (past and future) is encoded in
our DNA strands and revealed through the subconscious mind.
Perennial and Transpersonal philosophy and theosophy resonates with
me. I like the power of the human imagination, and therefore myths
and fairy tales help me understand and connect with our innate and
fundamental universal power. I spend time thinking about the
building blocks of information and how that ethos connect us to a
universal truth and our destiny.
On a typical Friday night I am
I cannot say, but more times than not a typical Friday night
involves good food and a movie or book. Usually, I will go to the
gym, get a good workout in and then head home. If I am not going
out to meet friend(s) to go to an event or social gathering, I will
stay home and cook a good semi-vegan meal and then maybe touch
bases with selected special people in my circle and then watch a
movie or jump into a book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't consider anything about myself private. I don't give any
information that much power in my chain of being.
You should message me if
You have an open mind, desire to find someone to share times and
have the time and interest to invest in a healthy relationship. If
you have a kind heart and a cute smile.
