I'm a dad. I have my daughter 1/2 time. She's a tween and thank the gods she and I are still close.
As a couple, GloinCameroon and I are into exploring with others, men and women. We are also open to the idea of a larger relationship, semi-polyfidelitous, and possibly building a larger family in the future. I think ideally at this time I'd like to find a bi guy who was excited about connecting with both of us.
Other facts, I've traveled the world, I'm a photographer, I have been a lefty political activist, I'm a massage therapist.
I am completely indifferent to all sports. I could be talked into playing a game of this or that. I can even watch others play for a bit to enjoy the athleticism of their efforts, but I don't care who wins when major teams play, and don't follow pro or college sports of any kind. (I include this as a service to all the hard core sports fans for whom this fact about me is a deal killer.)
I am "ethnically Jewish" I don't practice, and never have. Both of my parents were raised Jewish, I was raised Unitarian. At this point I'd say I was "Spiritual not religious." (Ever hear Utah Phillips talk about being run out of town by the Unitarians? They burned a question mark on his lawn.)
I believe strongly in non-violent communication, especially in relationships. (Sometimes I make exceptions in traffic, muttering to other drivers.)
Photography bookings aren't what they were when everyone was spending the equity on their houses on big lavish weddings, so I am also doing massage therapy. I'm really good too.
Playing with children.
Thinking (don't laugh, not everyone is)
I'm reminded of an interview with Steve Carell. About his character in the office, he says "Everyone knows someone like that, and if you don't, then you probably are that person."
I hope I am not THAT person, but I am still not sure what most people think of me.
Now I'm remembering a funny quote from a teacher of mine. He was making fun of how people always worry "what will they think of me?" He rejoined; "Who had time to think about you?"
Pardon me while I name authors instead of books.
Ursula K. Le Guin
JK Rowling (reading her to my daughter and loving it)
Music is very important to me. I would not say I like all kinds of music, but my taste are wide, and they get wider all the time. I've spent a life time enjoying crunchy hippie music like Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, and KFOG "alternative" type music, but more and more I find myself really pleased by music I used to hate or ignore, like I'm starting to get the appeal of both country AND heavy metal, I'm more into Punk than ever.
Ok, here is an overkill list of some of my favorite music:
Ben Folds Five
Bonnie Prince Billy
Crosby Stills Nash and Young
Cry Cry Cry
Everything But The Girl
Iron & Wine
Jenny Lewis With The Watson Twins

I want to make enough money so I can travel the world doing self funded freelance photojournalism projects about the good things that people are doing in the world.
People like Wangari Maathai (won the Nobel prize for planting 10 million trees in Africa) or Amory Lovins (knows how to solve global warming while making society a better place for everyone to live in AND making business more money)
