i'm mixed, and feel very connected to both my black heritage and my scandinavian heritage. i love my diverse family, and the dear friends i've made from all parts of my life.
i'm looking for a guy to hang out, laugh, and explore the world with - someone with his own rich life but who wants to spend quality time doing the little and big things together.
i don't drink, smoke, or do any drugs - i'm living a substance-free and very fun-filled life! if alcohol or drugs are important to you or a significant part of your life, we're probably not a fit. but if you're willing not to do them or be on them when you're with me, then feel free to be in touch!
i'm committed to living a long and healthy life, and getting there is a journey. healthy eating is important to me, and swimming, dancing, and hiking are favorite ways to move.
i try to have fun whenever possible! a recently discovered passion is knitting. i love the art of comedy, and get a kick out of breaking down why something is funny. i also love a good heated film discussion.
i want to be practicing yoga and traveling but they've taken a back seat lately. i'm planning to pick up kayaking next season.
i'm a podcast fiend and have aspirations of being a comic book nerd - always happy to get recommendations!

also, please don't message me if you're out-of-state - local folks only! and don't message me if you're looking for someone to dominate you, or some other similar arrangement. that's not for me.
