My self-summary
I am independent, compassionate, intelligent, friendly, somewhat outgoing, quite personable, and have a very active sense of humor. For a guy my age (48) I'm in reasonably good health and in pretty decent shape as I exercise most every day. Biking is my main form of exercise for body, mind, and soul. Music is also extremely important to me (both playing and listening). As an example, when I have a headache playing guitar and singing always makes me feel better. I'm in a couple of rock bands in Madison and am an avid homebrewer (more on that in the next section). I read voraciously on the Internet and and am a sports fan, as well as being quite interested in politics and history.

To say that I'm politically progressive is probably an understatement. Basically, I think that our two party political system is a shitstem and a fraud. Then again, that isn't really all that radical an opinion, is it? Also, I like to think that I'm doing a pretty good job of not contributing too much to the destruction of our planet.

I'm an active and busy guy, though this brutal winter is impinging on my bike riding as I have a self-imposed rule of not biking when the temperature is under 10 degrees.

My usual form of cultural activity is going out to see live music. I'm a fan of the summer music festivals in Madison and am a member/fan of the local music scene. I also like to watch movies and check out a local theatrical production. Also, I'm a member of the local craft beer scene (again, more below).

And, despite what the staff robot might think, I am capable of being quite romantic, damnit!
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently a fundraising director at a well-known local non-profit but am seriously engaged in a process of career change. I'm planning on opening a small brewpub in Middleton by the end of 2014 and am working on the business plan for it. I'm turning pro as a brewer and am plunging headlong into starting a new small business. As one of my closest friends put it: "You have a talent and a passion: go for it!"

Music and homebrewing are my principal creative pursuits. I'm a songwriter/guitarist and lemmy tell you, designing a great beer that turns out really well is a hell of a creative endeavor (IMHO).
I’m really good at
Riding my bike, talking, writing, listening, playing guitar (well, probably not REALLY good), analogizing, mixing metaphors, driving, brewing beer.
The first things people usually notice about me
My radio voice and that I look young for my age.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Wolf Totem by Jiang Rong; Save Me, Julie Kogon by Allen Ruff; The Bomb by Howard Zinn; Guns, Germs and Steel by Jared Diamond; Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut (actually, anything by Kurt); Childhood's End by Arthur C. Clarke (yeah, I'm a sci fi fan).
Movies: American Movie, Being John Malkovich, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Swedish original, of course), Das Boot, Life of Brian, Eight Men Out, In the Loop, and I could go on.
Music: I'm a rocker principally (punk, low fi, garage, psychedelic) but also like many other styles of music (classical, jazz, reggae, blues, folk, bluegrass, country, "world")
Food: contemporary American, Italian, Thai, Mexican, Indian, Nepalese, Chinese, Japanese, Indonesian, Peruvian, Cuban. I enjoy dinner dates!
TV: Firefly (I have the "complete" series on DVD), Star Trek, The Office, South Park, Nature, The Young Ones, Monty Python.
The six things I could never do without
Water, food, air, music, my bike, friendship.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually out having a good time with good friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have two cats (and one of them has three legs).
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 35–50
  • Near me
  • For long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
you want to. I'm definitely of the school of thought that meeting is much preferable to e-messaging so if we like each other's profiles why not meet and see if we like each other? And, maybe just even, that oft-elusive chemistry will occur.

I'm looking for the next love of my life. Been there, done that, want to do it again. Ultimately I'm on OKC for LTR.
