I'm an artist, an environmentalist, and a bit of a Buddhist nature-mystic. I'm a painter, muralist, and all-around creative-type. I'm low-drama, and I tend to attract the same.
I'm happily married; my wife and i have a polyamorous relationship. I'm body-positive and sex-positive, but not a swinger. I've lived in Montana, Washington, California, and Scotland, but mostly North Carolina. I like to travel, especially to places with high mountains and big trees.
What I’m doing with my life
art, hiking, exploring
I’m really good at
drawing and painting, throwing parties and events, playing guitar and banjo, prying shy people out of their shells, finding my way without GPS.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a nice laugh
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
When I was a kid my babysitters made me watch tv all day every
summer, and tv still feels more like torture to me than
entertainment. I do like a lot of movies, though, and I love music
more than I can say in words.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The age-old question of how to make a living doing what I love, and
trying to make the world a better place in the process.
On a typical Friday night I am
At some crazy party or weird art event.
One Friday I was hired to be a plein-air painter at a corporate
event for a bank. While the bankers mingled and schmoozed, I stood
by the food table with an easel and paint. I felt like a trained
monkey on display for the bankers, so I couldn't relax or even take
it very seriously. What started out as a painting of a fruit-tray
quickly became a homoerotic scene between three cowboys wearing
make-up. (This was before Brokeback Mountain.) I was not invited to
participate in any other corporate events.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't like cilantro, cucumbers, or avocados, which disqualifies
me from ever being accepted as a real hippie.
You should message me if
you're thinking about it.
