My self-summary
I believe honesty is more important than fidelity, and that talking about ideas is more interesting than talking about people. I travel around a lot and am always looking for people who share these beliefs to hang out with.

My favorite way of getting to know someone is through mutual effort on projects which appeal to both of us, so it's difficult to explain who I am through any kind of passive medium like a profile.

I am a professional full-time artist, and spend most of the year traveling to art shows internationally. I am also a sex educator, teaching classes on alternative relationship models, sex-positivity and BDSM. I therefore spend a lot of time talking about, looking at, and engaging in art-creation and sex.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a freelance photographer, spending a significant portion of my life selling my artwork at street fairs and conventions around the country.

I moved to Chicago in 2004, and it's strange to think how long ago that was. I left a large, extremely intimate social group in Pittsburgh, and have yet to make any strong friendships. I sometimes think that I've set my standards too high. I want the close camaraderie without the years of interaction that lead to such closeness. Or maybe my problem is that I'm too busy dating to make any gorram friends.

I'm more interested in finding people to go out and do things with than I am interested in finding a romantic partner right now. That said, I am looking for a romantic, long time partner, who knows how to be supportive of non-traditional employment.

Six things I could never do without
my cameras, my first edition House At Pooh Corner, my friends, something new to read, my music collection, a sense of order
I spend a lot of time thinking about
photography, double checking what city I am in, wondering how to better myself
On a typical Friday night I am
Selling art at a festival, drinking at a festival, dancing at a festival, teach sex ed classes, learning stuff I could teach next Friday, or editing photographs (usually while drinking rum)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
After every visit to my parents, I spend a disturbing amount of time examining my ears.
You should message me if
you're socially active, photogenic, witty, or are comfortable talking to someone with an alternative morality that is not merely hedonistic. You should NOT message me if you spend more time watching TV or smoking dope than anything else.
The two of us
