I like to communicate openly and for my partner and I to feel free to talk about anything, no matter how silly or irrational or heavy or anything else.
I love caves, theatre, my bicycle, books, thought and consciousness, astronomy, ontology, camping, women, movies, love, music, acting, and improv. I love to write. I'm a co-producer with an Austin theatre company, and I play a lot of improv with a couple of troupes. I even tour sometimes with one of them; I love to visit different cities and perform in them--or not perform, and just enjoy them.
I seek out beauty and authentic moments. I find some kind of joy in finding the beauty that is kicked around and overlooked and under-appreciated in this scary and lovely world.
Never been married, nor had any kids, illicit affairs, nor stds.
I love being able to be fiercely and creatively and dynamically myself with another person. Despite the popular wisdom that we must all be independent and nobody needs anybody else to be complete, I am happier when I can share my life experiences with someone. That doesn't mean I need to be with someone all the time. My partner and I should be free to have our personal space and time whenever we want. Freedom is good stuff. And I think every relationship has its own dynamic identity and "rules," and it's always good to talk openly with each other about that, and about nearly everything, too.
I'm also really good at being funny. It's the truth, I am definitely good at making people laugh, but I've often been reticent to say that in this profile, because I've never been able to make my profile funny.

This was my facebook post the day after netflix released season 4 of Arrested Development:
"I just wanted to say here real quick, especially before any complaints of sour, thwarted expectations started showing up around here, because they often do in this forum, that I saw all 15 episodes of Arrested Development, and, I dunno, maybe because I was in a good mood following a nice bike ride, maybe because I was watching with a good friend, maybe because I was delightfully stoned a great deal of the time, maybe because we were watching on a 40-something inch TV, and maybe because we prepared a bunch of delicious chocolate-dipped frozen bananas for snacks, and maybe it was all just a perfect storm of context for enjoyment, but I really loved the show, and after the first three episodes, which I consider to be mostly set-up and exposition for the most complex "sit" ever devised for a "sitcom," I was laughing heartily and consistently through the remaining episodes of the season, and that was really very satisfying, and I give this unusual pop sensation of a series resurrection at least an A, if not an A+."

I'm including a kind of epilogue for my profile here. This is like, if you want to know me in a nutshell, these are the basics: I love acting, laughing, dancing, Radiohead, rain, road trips, hiking, biking, marijuana, watching movies, all kinds of playing with words and language, and intimate, creative, meaningful moments with people I care about.
If that sounds good, then tell me something.
