My self-summary
Writing my profile? It's been on the back burner, one of these days I'll get it done. Probably read too much for my own good. Been experimenting, loving my goofball friends, mystery trips on my bike til late, sipping in the moonlight, swimming outside all year round. Insatiably curious about ten thousand things.

What are you passionate about? Do you enjoy scintillating conversations? Do you want to laugh and play more?

Sure, the world may be a wasteland but that does not mean we cannot come together and change ourselves in some valid way. The mind is a very mysterious thing and I am unconvinced it cannot be used to create magic.

What motivates people is fascinating. If you want to know how any chemical affects the brain, why humans dream, change sex, collect underpants or play with fire etc, I swear I’ve got all the best answers, even the wrong ones - especially during nitrous oxide orgies

Can’t have enough clever and funny creatures in my world, which would be a great excuse to be friends with you.

I love sunlight, smiling faces, mountain lakes, dancing, playing music, surrealism, hiking, reading, traveling, great conversations, passion and spontaneity -- love to laugh and enjoy those who have interesting things to say and do, challenge my mind, make me laugh, know how to be happy and have fun!
What I’m doing with my life
Painting the town red, dancing on the tables. Increasingly drawn into the orbit of China . . . *cough *cough yep this place is pretty much irresistible. Going garage transnational with a huge and crazy cool project that's been brewing for years.

Amongst other things = wrote-directed a feature length movie that played international film fests, produced live events and records, made an iphone app, freelancing in Asia as a business consultant. In a recent past life taught hormonally-challenged, gifted teen delinquents. Gawd knows why I did this . . . probably a misplaced, nerdy enthusiasm for culture, masochism and summers exploring new lands. International travel is part of my job now and I love it.
I’m really good at
Questions, answers, explanations - and laughing . . . If you be curious to know me and wanna see how we'd hit it off, why not start by reading and comparing questions? Probably wouldn't hurt. Because there's nothing more boner-inducing than someone who does the good mind grind, don't ya think?
