My self-summary
I am but a rogue knight-errant,
A pirate on a sea of dream,
Something of a ribald-savant...
And still more than that which I seem.

Obviously a nerd to start off my dating profile with verse (it is original, yes), but also actually a pirate, a Storyteller, a rogue, a libertine, a switch, ridiculous, of the Fae, part Muppet, and many other labels and descriptors that are much more fun discovered in person!

Yes, casual sex is listed as something I'm looking for. No, that doesn't mean I'm just out here looking to get laid. Meaningful connections can still be 'casual' and I'm looking for substance from the fun and friendly to the hot and heavy. That said, I'm a total perv and love to make dirty jokes, corny jokes, flirt like a good, and generally just enjoy life with some fo-pah.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an actor combatant and fight choreographer, and also a freelance stage technician, electrician, and sound engineer Yes, that's right: I play with swords for a living. Then I MacGyver theater together from the debris of my berserker destruction. It's extreme storytelling!

Oh, and then I also run karaoke shows and an Irish folk/Ren-Rock band, with whom I sing and play the irish pennywhistle. Nerd Alert.
I’m really good at
Acting, Singing, Fighting.

Telling stories and listening to other people's stories - I am a big fan or the oral tradition (there's a bad joke there...).

Walking the fine line between ridiculously silly and professionally serious. Okay, more like playing hopscotch around it. But SERIOUSLY.

Pairing tasty wines, beers, whiskys and cheeses, or mixing tasty cocktails.

Being snarky, finding myself in odd and ridiculous situations, making an ass of myself, and shouting out the lame, dirty or antique jokes most of you are thinking but don't want to say... It's part of my charm.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair, usually. I don't know why...

I've been sometimes told it's my smile or my eyes. If you tell me this, I will probably blush wildly.

The six things I could never do without
Faith--"I don't care what you believe. Just Believe It." ~Shepherd Derrial Book
People, especially my friends and family--"There’s something way down deep that’s eternal... and that something has to do with human beings." ~Thorton Wilder, "Our Town"
Swords
Passion
Music
Answers--Or perhaps more accurately, questions to answer. Not trying to be deep; I really couldn't do with a world where everything was known.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How could you climb up Rapunzel's hair without pulling her out the gorram window. It's anchored to her head.
How to be a better actor and fighter.
Why I love Tropicana Orange Juice so much.
Where in the World IS Carmen Sandiego?
How to improve things I'm not happy with.
How to go further with things I am happy about.
Why is everyone thinking about how they'd survive the Zombie Apocalypse?
Ethical kink, queerness and non-monogamy; and my place in the spectrum(s).
My fight choreography.
Gender politics and changing concepts/conceptions.
People's stories and experiences.
On a typical Friday night I am
doing the same thing I do every night, Pinky. TRYING TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD!

Working, at a concert, at the nerd bar, singing/hosting karaoke, or just randomly finding trouble to get into. Or sitting at home cleaning weapons, playing pennywhistle and watching Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a drag queen. No, really.
You should message me if
... you appreciate and can handle straightforward honesty with a heavy dose of sarcasm, wit and silliness. I like to goof around; I do not like to play around.

...you're interested in engaging a new partner for fun, exploration and new experiences of all kinds, be it in the bedroom, in the kitchen, on stage, or in the great outdoors.

... you dig that casual sex and such comes with real connection and enjoying each other's person, not just each other's body parts. Same goes for dating and friends, obviously.

Let's eat cheese and go adventuring.
