I'm a body poet, poly philosopher and shooting star of creativity who likes diving into innovative projects, community, dancing ecstatically, contact improvisation and playfulness. I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve and hug a lot.
A long term Seattlite, student and scientist finishing up a degree in Nanotechnology Engineering (Material Science), father to a 5 year old angel.
I've been a bread baker, global traveler, English teacher, diver, student, scientists, artist, father, dancer and creator spirit.
I've traveled a chunk and made it around this earthly block, mostly by motorbike, diving in Thailand, camping in Transylvania, camel trek in the Sahara. Lived and taught English in Thailand and Taiwan. I dig adventure and would much rather explore temples than lay on a beach, but make time for both.
My highest joy comes through body movement. Creative articulation through movement inspires me. Dance and soul song are my prayer and brings my creative light into the world.
In ten years I'll have a gallery showing with all of my creations from paintings and photos to a lifetime masterpiece that I'm on a mission to manifest.O ..which is part book, part arT, science project and re-frame of an archaeological story within the mythology of humanity and passing gift to my daughter. It's a tale of it's own.
The buzz of people, ideas and good easy conversation inspire me. I love continual discovery and growth with lots of stories to share and would love to hear yours.
I can appreciate an epic role playing game, though hardly play rpg's or computer games anymore.. too busy being a real life father/wizard/student/lover. Computer games are awesome and I enjoy playing, but talking about your level 56 gunner with new 'special' weapons makes me want to get creative, break out the body paint and roll around with the moon. Same goes for sports ball.. sorrynotsorry.
I'm an apocaloptimist ~ The system is rigged and may eventually collapse .. or not.. somehow it will all work out. I plan on being part of the solution instead of getting eaten by zombies. If it weren't for nuclear, I'd consider antidisestablishmentarianism, but because of nuclear we have to work with what we have.. even if it sucks. That being said.. our system sucks and we need a new one. I'm open to your politics if you're open to mine.
I'm bi ~ poly/open (heteroflexible w/ queer twist). Recently unmarried and we are both feeling good about it. So mostly single (I like the word sovereign) with a local lover and an occasional non-local lover couple.
I'm an independent person and a Tiger Turtle slowly ascending the ocean waves into the world of digital dating taking the time to make sure everything feels right. I'm not really looking for one person to be my everything, but have facets of myself I'd like to find others to share with.
I'm a non-promiscuous compersionist. Compersion, it's a thing.
"A feeling of joy when a loved one invests in and takes pleasure from another romantic or sexual relationship."
I'd much rather cultivate time with the friends I've discovered and love while allowing them the freedom to follow their bliss without holding them back. Let's lift each other up and allow each other to grow.
Thus when I find my happy place and improv playmate/s my profile here will sink back into the deep sea of serenity. I'm no less open to friends mind you, but I have so many things I want to do and make with my life that I'd rather be doing that then on here. It's all about efficiency and quality over quantity people ;) Online dating is weird, fascinating, and kind of neatO.
Originally I joined OKC to find like minded flirtation-ships and sexy partners, however since joining my interest has widened with pure curiosity and fascination for new people. You are all so beautiful and the facets of humanness amaze me!
Other things I dig: firedancing ~ diving ~ motorcycling ~ running ~ traveling ~ alchemy ~ reading ~ thinking a lot ~ dreaming ~ meditating ~ more dancing ~ playing with blindfolds ~ chess ~ rpg's ~ cursive writing ~ a bowl of yummy green goodness ~ jump rope ~ spontaneous moments of singing ~ drumming ~ hiking ~ and spiraling with my body ~
..so there.. consider myself pitched ; )
Working in a lab developing curriculum for a Nanotechnology program based on a lithography system I lasered together and am using to build a EM cloaking array.
I like blindfolds and facilitate blindfolded dance events, some public, others private. We set up squish space and dive into a sightless slow motion mosh pit of magical movement and beautiful contact improvisational fluid free form ecstatic dance. We keep it slow and low. Yep it's a thing. www.slowmoflow.com (Public events are dance focused in a nonsexual high vibrational sacred container.)
I've started a book on the historic use of blindfolds in everything from ancient rituals, neo-tantra, kink, sensory experimentation, martial arts and somatic philosophy ramblings about brain chemistry and neural development.
Also working on an invention which is a modern version of the 1870's Acoustic Turbine with microfusion fueled pulsed plasma thrust. It's experimental and I hope it works.. if it doesn't.. make badass art out of it and take it to burning man.
My passions are endless and I will do ALL the things!!
~ Being silly with my daughter.
~ Smelling good
~ Decorating and setting altar space.
~ Lighting and changing it if it needs it.
Between a toddler, inventions and text books there hasn't been much time for leisure reading or movies of late.. I miss both though and have a reading cue: A Picture of Dorian Grey (A friend is sending his copy from Amsterdam!), The Doors of Perception, Ulysses.
Avatar ~ Air Bender = Cartoon fav, Dragon Ball Z, Ghost in the Shell, Hayao Miyazaki, Brazil, Catch 22, Pan's Labyrinth, Burton, Gilliam - Dark, beautiful and twisted.
As for TV shows ~ Continuum, Louis C.K., Alias, Orange is the New Black, Breaking Bad, Penny Dreadful, Warehouse13, Sherlock ~ I don't watch much, but enjoy when I do. Sci-fi & Documentaries.
~ Random Rab, Ill-Esha, Spearhead, Marley, Miles Davis, Enya, Enigma, Loreena Mckennitt, Ella Fitzgerald, & good ol Louie, Sublime, Slightly Stoopid, The Cure, Depeche Mode, Pink Floyd, and Black berry pie
Sunsets and waterfalls
Good food and fresh air
Singing ~ Scat jazzy style :)
My archeo and personal journals
Sacred sanctuary and purrrring sexiyumiliciously
More than 6? ~ I'm pro abundance and like visually ordered lists
Things to decorate, blindfolded games, fusion experiments involving rotating stuff. Sex. Blackberry pie and Jesus toast.
This is my own dichotomous sense of humor. I can enjoy a serious discussion about theology or have Jesus on toast and enjoy the novelty of life. Sorta seriously though, I think usb toasters are the best thing since sliced bread.
I spend time thinking about novelty in the universe and tripping over it. Yes I do. I'm a bit of a spiritual anthropologist, but I can still make fun of it all.
My yummy friends and I know how to throw DOwn! Sometimes rolling around with blindfolds or dancing our asses off in a wonderland of bliss. Never a dull moment to be had in this dynamic community though I can easily curl up and chill on the easy.
~ Ask me to and I'll sing on a dime anywhere, I might feel shy, but that won't slow me down.
...if you found my profile interesting, want to grab a drink, dance, play blindfolds or whathaveyou. You people fascinate me and I want to know about your life's adventures and multifaceted perspectives.
...if you are cool with the fact that I have other partners that I care dearly for. ...if you feel resonant with co-creating something beautiful .. sexy ..or just kickin it.. friendly ...if you have homeostasis and are cozy with poly parallel or perpendicular play with caring and loving souls who are busy making a lovely life without drama.
I like to know my lovers, go out for walks, dance and play or curl up watch movies with rubs n' such, however I have a busy life so it's a beautiful balance between passion and patience.
* If you made it this far through my long ass profile know that I don't have a paid account, so if you simply star me we without being able to see that you visited will miss each other entirely :(
