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.

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