My self-summary
Hello :) If you read my whole profile, you'll find the information you need. Instead of a summary, let's think of this as an introduction...

An important note:
I participate in multiple relationships, I practice ethical non-monogamy, and this is how I prefer to live. My partner dlwonderland is super sexy, and keeps me on my toes. I learned 90% of what I know about effective communication from her. She complements me like no one else ever has. We are open to new opportunities as a couple, but we mostly date independently. If you are down with ethical non-monogamy, hit me up :).
What I’m doing with my life
For Work: I teach Crossfit classes at a local gym. I also do personal training. I help people chase their dreams and achieve their goals. I work to subvert the dominant paradigm of the fitness industry and spread the message of integrative and holistic health/fitness/wellness.

For fun: Physical exertion is part of my everyday life, and if I don't get my workout in, things go sideways. I write about life, coaching and other stuff on my blog, Living Revolution. Writing songs and strumming my guitar have been lifelong hobbies, though I don't spend enough time doing either.
I’m really good at
accepting challenges
touching, just right
cooking from scratch
working hard
sitting up straight
loving
leading
lots and lots of other stuff
humility
The first things people usually notice about me
I've never asked anyone this question.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I've seen some cool movies. Comedies, Thriller/Action, and Zombie movies stay at the top of my list, though I can be pursueded to sit through something dramatic if the story is well-written.

I've read some interesting books. Right now, I am reading "The Buddha Walks Into a Bar". It is good! "The Story of the Human Body" by Daniel E. Lieberman. Hunter Thompson, Chuck Palahniuk, and various titles from the Crimethinc Collective still have a place on my shelf.

I like music. TOOL and Floater have been my favorite bands for years. Smashing Pumpkins, Silverchair, Bush, Zeppelin, Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn. These are faves, but my taste is eclectic, depending on my mood.

Food tastes good, and I am not picky. Truth is, I'm insatiable. Thai is my favorite right now, and because of my training schedule, I am focusing on consuming as many calories as possible. Meat. Veggies. Nuts. Some starch, little/no sugar. Paleo is a catchphrase; I eat to optimize performance and feel my best.

Shows (when I have time): Sons of Anarchy, New Girl (Zooey is my crush), Walking Dead, Anthony Bourdains "Parts Unknown", Mind of a Chef. Netflix is awesome!
The six things I could never do without
physical intimacy

competition

good sleep

the use of my hands

balance

sunshine

calories
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my next workout, the zombie apocolypse, how to be a better parent to my kids, how to be a better partner in my romantic relationships, what I am going to write about next, physical intimacy, passion, effective communication, my adamant refusal to grow old
On a typical Friday night I am
working at the gym until about 7:30. Then home. I am NOT a night owl and I value restful night's sleep.

I have a flexible and chaotic schedule. This is a blessing and a curse. That is to say, Friday might not be the best night to get together, but we have other options :).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Depends entirely on what kind of questions you ask...
You should message me if
I'm looking for women who have experienced the intricacies of multiple relationships. I'm looking for people who understand how to communicate, how to manage their time effectively, and how to ask for what they want. I'm looking for people who are about action, progress, and evolution.

Maybe I'll write first, maybe I won't. Here are a few possible reasons you should write me first:

If you want me to help you work yourself in to shape!
If you aren't afraid of what you don't understand.
If you don't judge books by their cover.
If you put more value on function rather than fashion.
If you have an incredible ass, thick thighs, and strong legs!!
If you believe we can be friends, or you are interested in sharing a sexual experience together, or some wonderful combination of both :)
