My self-summary
Intellectual adventure geek seeks intimidatingly smart girl.

I've a good testosterone vs humility balance. Assertive but not obnoxious. Fun, affectionate, energetic, thoughtful, considerate. I got game.

I'm voraciously curious; confident enough to be vulnerable.

Always ready for a good conversation over cocktails at a dive bar. Or dancing to the juke. I'm at home at the opera, museums, interesting talks at the Commonwealth Club in SF (dinner somewhere really good and an overnight in the city). Festivals anywhere. Baseball.

I'm an award winning photographer and a published author. My day job is running a network engineering company; my avocation is the arts and helping organizations that create art spaces. Right now latest project is collaborating on a doc series on the west coast photography scene.

I'm an engineer- a really rewarding and surprisingly creative job that gives me enough free time to have fun (not to mention keeps me in shape when I work with my crew). And it's great being the boss.

Got a whole roomful of books with a very comfy chair for reading and taking flights of imagination. For real world exploration there's enough toys in the driveway and my hangar to take us anywhere we want to go.

And, most importantly, I know how to make really yummy French toast.
I’m really good at
Being a capable man. That gives me a lot of room to spare for putting energy into the things in life that matter.

Cooking you a romantic dinner.

Reading you a poem upstairs at City Lights bookstore and then trying to get you get you drunk at Tosca.

I can help you gentle your horse, fly you anywhere we want in my plane, or take us to the Henry Miller library in Big Sur for a moonlight concert. Best way to visit Big Sur... on my motorcycle- or a hike or 4x4 down the old coast highway .

Have you ever made out on the Bixby bridge?

I have strong arms, soft hands, and give great massages. Oh, and I'm a great kisser.
The first things people usually notice about me
My blue eyes, broad shoulders, and smile. I have a (mostly) neatly trimmed goatee of very soft touchable whiskers.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books (and authors) : I'm a total book whore. So, just to name a few... To Kill a Mockingbird, Neruda, On the Road, Middlesex. John Irving- A Prayer for Owen Meaney.

Magazines: The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Esquire.

Music: Dive bar bands, Calexico, KPIG radio, DMB, Opera in SF and Paris. Phillip Glass.

Movies: Princess Bride, Now You See Me, Notting Hill, The Right Stuff, The Godfather, Good Night and Good Luck

Food: The pea soup at Requin hut at 10,000ft on Mt. Blanc in France. Anything I cook with my lover.
Six things I could never do without
Air to breath.
My family
My hot tub
Reed's ginger beer
The night sky full of stars
(ok, eight... too much of a good thing is even better)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How does Pandora KNOW I'd love this song? How come I can't make a good Hollandaise sauce?
On a typical Friday night I am
There is no typical Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I secretly enjoy having a gender ambiguous name.
You should message me if
If you are looking for a smart, interesting guy with great eyes, strong arms, and very kissable lips.
The two of us
