My self-summary
It seems that my being a therapist scares off some people. I do know that past people I've dated have at times hurled the phrase, "blanking therapist" at me as an insult! That's usually because I was trying to get them to talk more or discuss their feelings, lol. Despite that I am really a pretty nice guy!

The other thing that can send some people running is the one of the areas of focus is alternative sexuality and alternative relationships. I'm sex-positive and work with people to be comfortable with the sexual preferences and desires. I'm not a therapist that tries to "cure" people around these issues.

Beyond that I'm just me. I have lots of interests, value good friends and would love to have a partner in my life.

I love smart people that enjoy learning and growing. People that are curious about new things, even if it isn't a specific interest of yours. I enjoy people that are adventurous.

I'm a huge fan of TedTalks. Some of my favorites are:

Brene Brown on Vulnerability and Shame

Simon Simonek on How Great Leaders Inspire

Poet Rives on 4am

I'm not all serious cat. I like to laugh and have fun. I can be silly. I am very affectionate and love doing the simple things together as much as the more exciting activities. I have a lot of sides to me...and I think that is a good thing.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a private practice in the healthcare field. This is a passion of mine. I have had a couple of previous careers where I was successful but was never passionate about. I decided it was time to be passionate about what I do.
I’m really good at
Talking. Listening. Thinking. Being a smart-aleck. Cooking. Teasing. Fixing things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I really don't know about this freckles?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I always hate favorites questions. I love all kinds of books but probably my favorite is To Kill a Mockingbird. I love the movie, too. I love Dean Koontz, especially the Odd Thomas series. I loved the Time Traveler's Wife, too. I read a lot of work books with odd titles like The Ethical Slut, Mating in Captivity and Sperm Wars.

TV shows - I like well written, smart ones. I've just rewartched Friday Night Lights - an amazingly crafted show with smart, realistic, well developed characters. I love West Wing, Sherlock, Jekyll, Orange is the New Black. Dexter, Hinterland, Californication. Breaking Bad and Weeds, too.

Ted Talks!!! I absolutely love TedTalks and can watch them for hours. Some of my favorites are -

Brene Brown - Vulnerability

Brene Brown - Shame

Simon Simonek - How Great Leaders Inspire -

Poet Rives - 4am

I love all kinds of foods - Mexican, Thai, Indian, pizza, brats and burgers. I love seafood! So many good restaurants. Graze, Nostrano, Los Gemelos, Crema Cafe, Merchant, Brasserie V. I know I'm missing tons.
Six things I could never do without
Having my brain stimulated. Coffee. Intuition. Books. Sex. Emotions.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Interpersonal dynamics and what makes people tick. I love watching interactions between family, friends and even strangers and trying to understand behavior. It fascinates me.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm not sure what typical is! My Fridays vary widely. It might be staying in and relaxing, preparing for the weekend. It can be going out with friends for dinner or drinks. Maybe if you read this it will be going on a date with you!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a lot less "traditional" than my appearance would suggest. I have sides of me that only those close to me know about and most would never guess.
You should message me if
You like good conversation while being highly caffeinated. You don't mind being challenged or discussing less socially acceptable topics. You want to laugh and think. You want to learn new things and teach new things. You can give as good as you get.
The two of us
