My self-summary
Settling in Reno after a lifetime in New York City and opening myself up to a new world of possibilities; in nature, in my work, in love and as a man.

I'm continually in the pursuit of the soulful--whether it's in my relationships, my work and art, or my fun. I'm very much a modern man with a lot of old school values; dignity, honor and integrity matter a hell of a lot to me, even if there's little that's conventional about me or what I want in a relationship with a woman. I believe in standards and I believe in the pursuit of excellence.

I'm a dirty sweet champion of chivalry who knows an amazing woman when I encounter one and knows how to treat her accordingly. I love real and loathe pretentious; reality, not theory; style, not trends; Goddesses, not princesses.

Rome, New Orleans, Paris, Brooklyn, Reno, Northern California and Burning Man (yes, Burning Man) are the places on earth that I feel most at home. I laugh often--deeply, irreverently, sometimes profanely, and I can find the humor in practically anything. And while I can be cynical about some things, I'm never cynical about the transformative power of love. Even when it hurts.
What I’m doing with my life
Building my career as a photographer after many years in the music industry. Nurturing my connection to an ever-growing community of incredible people. Getting straight about what's sacred to me. Maturing as a man while remaining very young at heart. Finding the beauty and humor in as much of everything as possible, even (and especially) in the dark stuff. Moving my body and moving energy.
I’m really good at
...making images, listening, shooting pool, being there for my friends, driving (especially a stick shift), kissing, sensing light and shadow, dealing with a crisis, knowing when to keep my mouth shut, hugging & cuddling, compiling a soul mix, seeing through bullshit, buying a woman very sexy shoes and/or boots, sensing energy, knowing when to lead, knowing when to follow and knowing when to go together.
The first things people usually notice about me
My energy and presence. The kindness of my eyes and my dimple. And the very mischievous twinkle in my eye.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Let's just say life would be significantly less beautiful without the following: The Rolling Stones, Coleman Hawkins, House music, Philip Roth, photo books by Walker Evans, Larry Sultan and Eugene Richards, Bruce Springsteen, "Dusty In Memphis," Joan Didion's "Slouching Towards Bethlehem," Aretha Franklin, Count Basie, Television's "Marquee Moon," Anthony Bourdain, Lee Burridge, Hunter S. Thompson, Bernard Malamud's "The Fixer," anything with Monica Bellucci, Raymond Carver, "Casablanca," David Halberstam, Sex Pistols, Taschen erotica, Sam & Dave, Woody Allen, Duke Ellington, "The Godfather," Pavement, Al Green, Robert Caro's books on LBJ, Grateful Dead, Frank Sinatra, Candi Staton, Billie Holiday, Bob Dylan, "The Great Gatsby," Hemingway's short stories, "The Little Prince," "Dr. Strangelove," and last but certainly not least, "Young Frankenstein."

If you find this half as beautiful as I do, we might stand a chance:

Food: Anything made with love. Except raisins. I hate raisins. Bad experience when I was 4. I never got over it.

Almost Definite Dealbreakers: You passionately loving the Dave Matthews Band, Broadway musicals and/or Ayn Rand. I find them each to be somewhere in between horrible and insufferable, and in my experience, they signify a major lack of compatibility. No judgments, we're just almost definitely not a match.

Definite Dealbreaker: You're a Republican or conservative in politics, outlook or behavior.
Six things I could never do without
A good, 70's style vintage leather jacket.
A top of the line Nikon.
Graciousness and kindness.
A connection to Spirit, Magic, and Soul.
A future with some soul-nourishing fun in it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Photography--concept, technique, the art of it...and just how much I love it.

Being in the inquiry of what is sacred to me. Living on and for purpose.

How to navigate a post-modern world when I don't like post-modernism.

Building a fulfilling life in Reno.
On a typical Friday night I am
Avoiding the amateurs, wherever they may be.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I tested for a Hogwarts house, I got Gryffindor.

I have a major thing for high heels.
You should message me if love yourself (on most days, at least). have the soul and kindness of a hippie, but you love yourself some style and edge.'re a loving, seductive, compassionate, and nurturing badass; enticingly feminine, who values elegance and vulgarity in equal measure.'re dirty and sweet, too.'ve been known to light up a room when you enter it.
...kindness and warmth mean more to you than attitude and cool. believe in magic.
The two of us
