So I love hiking and climbing in the mountains, though I'm not an adrenaline loving fitness freak. And I love listening to fast, loud metal, though I'm not a loud, tattooed party animal either.
I'm a pretty laidback and friendly guy. I enjoy solitude and am perfectly comfortable being back in my head, which comes in handy on solo trips in the mountains. I keep a close group of friends and family is very important to me. I love my job and coworkers, and we'll often go out for drinks or catch a movie after a shift.
I'm very open sexually and require the same of any partners. I enjoy kink and BDSM, and I'm willing to try pretty much anything. I can be gentle and giving (and love going down!) but generally like to dominate. I've enjoyed having friends with benefits, open/polyamorous relationships and group sex, so if that's what you're looking for feel free to contact me, but I feel ready for another monogamous, long term relationship with the right person.
Don't want to scare any nice girls off with my candor but I've had enough routine sex for one lifetime. Openness and enthusiasm are far more important to me than experience or even confidence, so if you're new to kink that isn't a problem. And of course there's nothing wrong with more vanilla sex, especially when opening up around someone new, as long as it becomes part of a broader variety.
I'm very passionate about hiking, rock climbing, mountaineering and caving, and put much of my resources into progressing in those areas and sharing my passion. I love capturing photos and video of the wild places I visit. I've given multiple presentations to some pretty large crowds, written a nearly novel-length story of my longest expedition (50 days solo), and have been featured in a wilderness documentary. I've taken EMT training and am a certified Wilderness First Responder, and I'm a member of a local mountain rescue team. Perhaps working for the Park Service is in my future but at this point in my life I want to be persuing my own goals in the wilderness rather than checking permits and lecturing litter bugs.
Music: cliche as it might seem, Pink Floyd's The Wall is probably my favorite album - so dark and expressive, and it helped open my mind to how meaningful and powerful art can be. Huge fan of jimi hendrix and dig a lot of other classic rock (Kansas, The Who, the less poppy, more psychedelic Doors). But metal is what i'm really into...old or underground stuff of all kinds. Celtic Frost, Burzum, Arkhon Infaustus, Dark Angel, Iron Maiden, Mercyful Fate and on and on...
I watch some movies and tv shows, but don't think they say a lot about me. A good documentary or TED talk is pretty satisfying, but comedies and sci-fi thrillers can be fun too.
freedom (not the flag-waving kind)
all the wonderful stupid things on the internet
the occasional escape from sobriety
That we can create meaning for ourselves in a world without any is pretty remarkable. So I seek out and share things that strike a chord with me...be it art, science, music, books, people, relationships...and ignore the rest.
