My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a mix of traits, a bit of a Renaissance man.

I can do a lot of things and can generally figure it out if I can't. I wonder if describing myself, I will seem bi-polar. I have a lot of interests.

I live in my head a bit and it suits my lifelong goal of writing. I am fanciful and quick to grab healthy dose of the imagination. I can be light-hearted and fun-loving.

However, I live in my body a bit also which makes me more of the artist, and I have the true artist's eye. I eat well and consciously, try to work out daily and I like to dance.

I am an eleven year firefighter: I'm really into putting out fires, but that doesn't stop me from starting a few ... no wait - metaphorically, of course! I have been giving a lot back to my community.

I can be both serious and silly, sometimes at the same time. I have a strong sense of the practical but can mix it up with a bit of whimsy. People have always said I'm funny, with a sharp wit, but sometimes I can sometimes slip into the obtuse.

I am content with my life and would be happy on my own. But a recent experience showed me how much I love good connection.

I tend to go for women who are very smart, and especially those with a bit of irreverent humor.

I would probably be most inspired by someone whose viewpoint captivates me in some fashion and with whom the talk comes easily, once we get to know each other.

I would also like that person to be interested in life, both the internal and external terrain, and be able to talk about and share experience without being critical.

I'm well-traveled and, though I haven't been able to get away as much as I used to, do enjoy traveling and have, indeed, lived outside this country for about eight years. I find the people and cultures most interesting, and generally prefer swag-style of travel to luxury - one tends to see more, though a posh resort from time to time is excellent. I love food.

I'm well-read and a literary penchant of some sort in a partner is a bonus. Also bit of an artist, so knowledge/appreciation of the arts an extra feather.

I've been in some very fulfilling relationships. What I've liked about those has been a sort of ease of affection, playfulness, and also honesty and integrity. While not an absolute requirement, deep connection, I do like if my partner has that capacity, and enjoys going there from time to time to enrich our understanding of each other and the world.

I enjoy spontaneity, but not chaos.

I believe I'm a pretty good listener.

Can I have all that in a single serving, please? I am a bit of a media guy (and I mean ex-high tech professional - so that geekiness lingers) and draw much information from the Internet. Though I have a few shows I've enjoyed (like Breaking Bad - wow!), I do not watch any TV.

I read books constantly, and am recently listening to a lot of audiobooks. I especially like to put one on while cleaning the house, or with my car's sound system while driving.

Of late, I am tending toward silicon valley start-up stories, self help variety betterment stuff, and young adult chapter books, such as Garth Nix, and occasionally some military sci-fi - just 'cos they're easy listeners.

I love a good movie, and the last one I can remember being surprised by was the more adolescent A Million Ways to Die in the West. Monty Python appreciated, absurdly. A well-conceived sci-fi plot. Even though I have seen many classics, art, foreign and hi-brow films, I seem to prefer something especially escapist these days.

I love music of course - originally from Chicago! Slippery funk, some techno, female vocalists and good blues my current palate, but that could change. Thievery Corporation, Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald, Regina Spector, Supergrass, the Clash - it's a strange spectrum.

Great theater, dance, & comedy also a great plus.

I am a bit of a foodie and can sometimes cook up a storm and enjoy a great restaurant. Much to my surprise, I developed my very own California affectation - I went gluten-free last year and love it!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The consonants.
A good sneeze.

I'm a full mix:

But I am also intuitive with a great sense of myself and who others are.

Can I make water and can I do it from scratch?

Trying to make my place AirBNB-ready.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Nice dinner at home and possibly a movie.

I like to dance, and I love art museums, especially modern, and eating out.
