My self-summary
I am a tall, tall guy. Somehow, this seemingly arbitrary feature of myself has defined some aspect of my entire existence. So, your platforms, heels, stilts, and piggyback riding pastimes are welcome here. With few exceptions, if you hug me, you're likely making friends with my nipples.

I have always found myself preoccupied with the joy of laughter, the ecstasy of music, and the adventure of exploration. I tell stories, real and imagined, to celebrate the idiosyncrasies of life. I am interested first and foremost with truth, compassion, and making connections that stretch unnoticed into the middle of the night.

I am an artist, musician, and a sometimes actor. I am a gentle giant, loud and passionate with a penchant for making people laugh. I fight for the equality of all people. I am a confident man on a journey never finished, blessed with amazing people in my life who continue to show me new paradigms. I love language and communication and I am not afraid to use it.

Light and sound continue to inspire me. I find the smell of forests at night to be intoxicating. I believe that the best way to light today’s room is with last year’s Christmas lights. I am always down for long drives to nowhere with the intent of getting lost. I love progressive rock songs that go on for way too long, listening to them way too loudly. And bourbon. How did I get along without you.

I love singing harmony with friends and finding harmony in those moments.

I'm a happily polyamorous guy, in an ltr with GlitterDoom. If you have questions, feel free to ask!
What I’m doing with my life
Expanding my knowledge of the world. Exploring love and relationships. Enhancing my communication skills. Finding new ways of escaping the rat race. Singing and abusing my guitar, until my calloused fingertips become hard and glossy. Finding calm and seeking peace. Rocking out in strange environments. Trespassing.

I am also a sometimes citizen of Slab City, working on a board of directors with the post modern assemblage art encampment It is a habitable, extensible art environment founded by the late Charles S. Russell. The place is just pure magic.

I work in vintage clothing and art department for various companies.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh. Comedy is my way of dealing with the world.
Singing. I find more satisfaction in that than almost anything.
Music. Though I’m still working on it.
Loyalty. I’m a damn good friend.
Late night adventures. I’m spontaneous and dangerously inquisitive.
Theatre, though I’ve been away from it for a rather long time now. Sad face.
Knowing a little about a lot of things.
Pop culture references
Cooking, as of late.
Overcoming obstacles.
Throwing a damn good party.

I listen to Dan Savage every week.
Six things I could never do without
Adventures to my desert playgrounds, north and south.
My friends and family.
A stage
My puppers.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Chord progressions. Coffee and Cigarettes (i've quit). Long drives through the desert at night. The Universe, and my very, very, small place in it. Harbin Hot Springs. Burning Man. The atmosphere of East Jesus: Music drifting out of the piano room, the open fire, the desert wind, scuptures looming in the dark, the distant fire of .50 caliber test rounds. How people live in Slab City year round. The downfall of patriarchal society. Gay rights. Women's rights. Going to India, living in an ashram. String Lights. Amazing food. the perfect guitar solo. Accordions. Urban exploration. Urbane exploration. Writing. Writers. My Friends.
On a typical Friday night I am
Yelling at the moon, yelling at the mirror, yelling at strangers. Or I'm dressed as some kind of rainbow vomit unicorn, leading a group in a rendition of Don't Stop Me Now.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a deep love and fondness for Disneyland. Not necessarily Disney. I also love Secular Christmas. A lot.

I'm also a pirate or something.
You should message me if
You're into the absurd, the strange, the unexpected. You love freely with passion. You love being spontaneous without expectation. You love to share music (or love to play it). You like extraordinarily tall guys. You are looking for new exciting connections and have a willingness to explore them. You love That Thing in the Desert, despite it's cringe worthy population of privileged white people. Or, you like to drink and laugh your ass off.
The two of us
