From the busy streets of Tokyo and it's hidden urban enclaves to
the arbor cathedrals of cedar and the salty expanse where blue
meets blue, I came out to Japan and fell in love with the place. I
love travel, be it far off and exotic or just a place around the
corner I have never been to, good food, good beer, and looking for
excuses to not wear shoes. I am an introvert but I like people too
much to be any good at it for very long. I believe that sailing
should not be restricted to the summer and a tent is not a
necessity for camping. I am an unrepentant geek, I consider myself
a straight shooter and value candor in others. Once upon a time I
went to Art School but found out that it really wasn't a community
I wanted to be associated with (the academia side, not the
artists...well maybe some of the artists). Fortunately l found a
job I really dig and a previously unknown love of applied
It should be mentioned that I am married (to
) and we are poly (that is to say
"polyamorous"). She is back in the states for work. If you would
like a personal referral, you are welcome to speak with her.
At this time I am just looking to make new friends. I am not
discounting the possibility of a relationship (much like drop
bears, these things can sneak up on you) but it is certainly not
anything I am actively seeking at this time. If this sounds too far
out, I am probably not who you are looking for, otherwise, boy
howdy let's rock this casserole.
I am rock and, rock, and roll! Radio! Lets Go!
What I’m doing with my life
I have a plan and it is moving along nicely. I am a professional
backseat driver and I get to tell large pieces of machinery when to
smash into gigantic pieces of machinery. By the time I am 50 I
should be living on a sailboat, growing a sweet beard, and
I’m really good at
I consider myself a capable cook in most cases except the ones
where I am an all conquering destroyer of worlds. I believe that
flash gloves, blow torches, and goggles have a definite place in
the kitchen. I can also talk nearly endlessly about craft
I also like to run! No seriously. While competition can be fun I
prefer social. Short, long, slow, fast, if I am propelling myself,
I'm a happy camper. If you are in the Tokyo area and you want to go
hashing, I'm always down.
Lastly, growing a beast of a mustache.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am short and have a shiny bald mad scientist head, two legs and
two arms attached to a torso in the normal configuration. I am also
predominantly made of meat and water.
Also I talk really fast from what I am told. People mistake it for
being nervous but it is just the way I talk.

I tossed my TV years ago but every now and them find myself
watching a series after the fact, Battlestar Galactica and Firefly
will always have a special place in my heart and I have become
enamored with The Mighty Boosh which I think should give you a good
clue of my sense of humor.
The six things I could never do without
"Could never live without." is some strong language. People are
capable of going without a great many things if needed. A short
list of stuff I'd prefer not to be without however would be:
•Living near the ocean
•the possibility of adventure
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What is for dinner? Bikes parts. Where do I want to go? Who can I
sucker into sailing? Who is doing what tonight? Jet Packs, Stomping
around like a T-Rex, the anthropological experiment that is an
online dating site (when I am on here at least).
On a typical Friday night I am
Yes...yes I am.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Apparently I have dainty little girl feet for a guy. For some
reason this is causes great lolz at work.
You should message me if
Hear in color, are looking to meet new people (especially if you
are around Yokohama), trying to expand your options when the
question "I wonder if anyone wants to hang out?" comes up, are
looking for someone to go cycling with, laugh at inappropriate
times, have or enjoy off color humor, would like to go sailing,
hiking, mountain biking, play guitar and are looking for a bass
player, own a jet pack, are looking to give away a jet pack, might
have leads on where to find get a jet pack, have used the word
sesquipedalian in a sentence before, or are just generally awesome
in your own estimation.
You should probably not bother if you have a serious hang up about
how tall your guy friends are. Most likely I am too short for you
and you are probably too shallow for me.
I promise not to bite (maybe nibble around the edges if you are
cute) so if you are tired of rampaging though Japan as a Mongol
Horde of one or are just looking to meet new folks, I'm your
