My self-summary
Note: I identify as polyamorous and currently have other lovers. Many ask why. I can't stop myself from falling in love, easily and often -- bonus points if you do too.

Friendship inquiries are always welcome, particularly if you like make food, live music, or dancing.
--Now back to your regularly-schedule profile--

This morning, two friends let themselves into my house and woke me with breakfast in bed.

This evening, I served warm chocolate cake with vanilla and banana ice cream, raspberries and nectarines, drizzled with caramel and balsamic vinegar to four beautiful women, three of whom are helping me write.

Tomorrow morning I fly to points unknown to teach dance to friends and strangers.

My life is really like that. And when I'm in my element: hedonistic, affectionate, larger-than-life and surrounded by friends, my close friends call me Tedgar.

I'm looking for a monogamish partner and playmate to share beauty, food, travel, and adventures.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a professional dancer and dance instructor
I'm an engineer by training and still love to solve complicated problems
My passion is training teachers to teach better
I make my own path, and find inspiration among the trailblazers who live simply
I’m really good at
Building community
Listening
Getting away with saying outrageous things
Dancing with grandma
Walking into a strange kitchen and whipping up a meal with what I find, doing the dishes, then escaping before they come home
Choosing the perfect present
Running with scissors
The first things people usually notice about me
Impishness
The twinkle in my eye
Mischievousness
(Notice a theme?)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Love in the Time of Cholera, Shawshank, The Red Violin, Archer, Gypsy and New Orleans Trad Jazz, homemade and decadent
The six things I could never do without
A Yucatan hammock
Live music
Sriracha
Dancing
Serendipity
Sun-warmed, fresh-picked berries
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Efficient body mechanics
Food
Communication and learning styles
Beauty
On a typical Friday night I am
Running a dance venue until odd hours of the morning
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an authentic romantic, and a Southerner -- I miss manual locks as an excuse to open the car door for my date. Sometimes I do it anyway, efficiency be damned
You should message me if
You believe in magic, or you've just baked bread
You're available for daytime adventures, or want to come out dancing
You bring whimsy with you wherever you go, and can still balance your checkbook
There's a San Francisco hole-in-the-wall you'd like to share
