My self-summary
Fit, educated, and outdoorsy human seeks self-aware and intellectually curious company for adventure, intrigue, cuddles

I am an academic, an athlete, an alliterationist. A critical thinker, a student of existentialist philosophies, and an active consumer of many kinds of art and expression. I am passionate about media and cognizant of the power that it has to shape the opinions and beliefs of a community. To that end I used to run a radio station, and used to publish a magazine. Used to read whole books in one sitting out on a bench near a mountain stream. Used to do a lotta stuff - the interesting question is, what am I going to do next?

In the spirit of summertime campout season - I am really quite good at building and tending fires. This might not be very important to some people, but it's something I'm pretty happy about. Good company + good conversation + a cheerful fire out under the stars is the happy equilibrium point in my life, towards which I always eventually want to circle back when I've strayed too far
