I have been a professional artist and musician for most of my life and taught guitar lessons to put myself through college. I had a brief distraction working for a Texas state senator at the Capitol, but fortunately it didn't last long enough to do any damage. Being an artist has meant I've had an adventurous life of feast and famine; that has evened out into a good living. I love my life.
My cat (I should really just say "the" cat because cats can't really have owners...) is an outdoor-only stray that wandered up which I feed just enough to keep the gophers out of my yard. I have a great admiration & respect for all animals but unfortunately am allergic to dogs. So, if your main home companion is one, it may not work.
Intelligence is a big turn-on for me, as is an intellectual curiosity about the world. I love to dance although I'm not great--but I'm eager to expand my skills. The culinary arts is a current pursuit, one with delectable rewards. I enjoy photography and digital editing. Travel is increasingly attractive. I also enjoy the art of touching each other (including random grabs without notice...!)
BTW, you are skinny, slim, slender, fit, like me -- it's simply who I'm naturally attracted to & not an indictment against anyone who isn't. Also like me, chronological age not important, but biological and mental age is...However, I'm definitely looking for a grown-up woman. If you're young enough for me to be your dad, not interested. And although I've been accused of being a nice guy, I can be bad at the right time...
I am intriguing, irreverent, and irredeemable. Civilized but not tamed...
