I'm also a part of the local burner community in Vancouver, never been to the Big Burn (one day) but am active with Burn in the Forest, Vancouver regional BM event.
I like to travel; having been to Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, and most of Europe, next on my list is probably SE Asia, somewhere I really want to go, but have yet to make it. Kicking around the idea of Vietnam and Burma next winter, so if you've been and have tips, pass em along!
I'm active, I play squash 3-5 times per week, flag football in the spring and and try to get in a boot camp class a couple of times per week. When the mood strikes me I still make it out on the basketball court, but that doesn't happen as often as it used to. I try to get the bouldering gym once in a while but probably not as much as I want to.
Some people may wonder, if I already have a partner why am I here? Well life is full of new experiences waiting to be discovered and shared together and who you do that with and how you do that can't be constrained by your typical relationship model.
I facilitate a local poly discussion group and am currently on the board of the Vancouver burning man regional group. I spend a lot my time being a part of both of these amazing groups of people, it's incredibly rewarding to give back to communities you are passionate about.
I love interacting with people in a multitude of ways, whether that be facilitating discussions, a night out on the town, or having a good conversation over coffee, tea or some sort of adult beverage.
I also get the odd person who says that I look like NPH, which is always amusing, I've used that to my advantage and gone to costumes parties as both Dr Horrible and Doogie Howser MD!
Movies: Once upon a time I worked at a video store, leading me to have probably 15 movies in my top 5, so here's a snippet: Fifth Element, Leon: The Professional, Reservoir Dogs, Devil's Advocate, Fight Club, Christopher Nolan Batman movies, Boondock Saints, Life as a House, Usual Suspects, the Game....this list could go on for a while...
TV shows: Anything Joss Whedon (Buffy, Firefly, Dollhouse, Dr Horrible) Dexter, The Wire, Friends, West Wing, Newsroom.
Music: I enjoy most music, don't really have a soft spot for country, but occasionally it's ok, although I will admit I'm terrible at recalling songs or the artists that write/perform them.
Food: I enjoy food made from fresh ingredients and almost always prefer a meal cooked at home than one cooked at a restaurant. I don't really have anything that I couldn't live without and will eat most things.
Sadly I've recently discovered that I'm allergic to gluten, dairy, eggs, soy beans, garlic, peanuts and almonds; so eating these past few months have been challenging, but rewarding. I find myself eating a lot of sushi, as it's pretty easy in a pinch.
- Taste buds (I saw this documentary where people had lost the ability to taste food, that would just suck)
- Contacts! Seeing is important and without them apparently I'm legally blind - one of these days I think I'll go and check out Lasik
Do we really have to do 6.....
I will admit recently I've taken a much more pronounced liking to dancing and recently have closed down Celebrities dancing until they turned on the lights.
While I live with my partner, there are many other ways a relationship can go, I don't believe in the purpose of a relationship being to end with marriage and children. Each relationship should be able to grow organically and also stop and plateau right where it fits between those 2 individuals.
So if you're willing to see where that may be, drop me a line.
