My self-summary
Featherless biped seeks companion for life's adventures.

I am a rather simple guy in most respects. I like to eat and be outside. I like music and laughing about whatever. I want to learn Gaelic but can't seem to find the time. I make a mean coconut curry but mostly just live off of smoothies, bagels, and fresh veg. I like to dress up and go to the opera but I also like to sleep under the stars and roll around in the grass. I have a bunch of tattoos (and maybe a few scars).

I grew up a Quaker on an organic rhea farm near London. I built my own straw bale house on Manitoulin Island. I know more than your average bear about fruit trees. I never went to highschool but now I am working on my master's degree (everyone who told me high school was important was wrong, I win!). Sometimes I preach from the pulpit on Sundays, sometimes I'm out fasting on a rock in the bush, sometimes I sing to the Sidhe...I'm kinda all over the place. I spent my teenage years as a nomadic punk rocker living on the side of the road, being a rebel. I absolutely love a pungent cheese and a strong ale. I'm a mystic of sorts.
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently going back and forth between Toronto and Manitoulin but after May I will be settled back up north again. I am working on a masters in divinity which will theoretically lead to ordination with the United Church. I am a landscaper by trade and also a landlord.

Death smiles at us all. All a man can do is smile back.

I’m really good at
Jazz hands
Witty remarks
Wearing socks that match
Memorizing songs and poetry
Applying sunscreen to my own back
Deep eye contact and intense smiles
Acting like a fool for the enjoyment of my son
Winning at board games (especially the more nerdy kind)
The first things people usually notice about me
Smashing good looks and winning personality?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Sizzla, Barrington Levy, Dougie MacLean, The Chieftains, The Eagles, Ella Fitzgerald, Brother Ali, Nusrat, Cake, Flogging Molly, Old Crow Medicine Show, MIschief Brew, Da Bush Babees, Tracy Chapman etc.

I only have time to read what my profs tell me to but I am trying to get through the Conference of the Birds by Farid Attar right now. Douglas Adams is a hero.

I don't actually have a TV or Netflix (I know it's lame and I live under a rock, but I'm just not into it). Nonetheless, I can enjoy a good nature show (especially with David Attenborough), Star Trek, or a comedy flick now and then. I love Mitch Hedberg, John Oliver, and Louis CK.

I love all the food. I like to experiment with Indian and Southeast Asian cooking. I also like to bake pies and I'm working on cakes. I like things with lots of flavour, cause why not? Do you want to cook with me?
Six things I could never do without
Pina coladas
Getting caught in the rain
The smell of the ocean
The taste of champagne
Making love at midnight in the dunes of the cape
Meeting you by tomorrow noon and cutting through all this red tape
I spend a lot of time thinking about
1.How to juggle the numerous and time consuming things I seem to commit myself to
2.The nature of reality and whether or not I exist
3.How to leave the world a better place than I found it
4.Whether or not I can justify eating out again
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a hopeless romantic and I really want to bring you flowers.
