My self-summary
Cliff's Notes: I am seeking bright-minded folks to make life more interesting through ethical non-monogamous relationships. While I think one- night things are fun I would rather try to have stronger relationships where the other person(s) doesn't need to see me every day. I live in the Portland area, but I regularly travel and would love to know some lovers along my path as well!

Unabridged: I moved to Portland after a childhood on a rural organic veggie farm in northern California ( Humboldt- if you know the area, we actually grew vegetables) and a young adulthood along the border in San Diego. I did the whole college thing down there, have a degree I don't use much. I am committed to never making more humans, and hence had a vasectomy a couple years ago.

I practice non-monogamy, and am very honest about my life with those that share it with me; sometimes my partners know each other, one time they were dating as well. I always discuss what the rules may be between myself and my partners and do not make or accept rules I intend to not follow.

Veramente, non uso il mio italiano sufficente per fare questo in un manerisma inteligente. Ma, si parli meglio d'io, vorrei molto avere l'opportunita practicare con voi. Cucino un po di pasta fresca (non compro la pasta, uso uova y farina, faccio tutto da niente), compro un po di vino (si vorriste), ed facceremo una bella cena! Si vorriste parlare, sarei fare quello con vuoi!
What I’m doing with my life
I am remodeling the house 10+ artistic friends and I live in.

I play music sporadically but would love to do so regularly with a group again; have been in some good bands that toured over the years. The main ones are tattooed on my leg.

I like drawing, especially people and architecture. I also would like to go out dancing more, especially of the ballroom/ salsa/ tango/ waltz / blues variety.

As far as work? Landlord, stagehand, Lyft driver, mover, farmer, artist, musician . . . depends on the day or time of day.
I’m really good at
I play the accordion and dance, sometimes simultaneously. I give good massages due to having taken a bit of classes for such ( 6 months schooling) and just liking to touch people. I'm good at talking to people. That also relates to my being a good landlord to an artistic collective.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have nice eyes and arms. Also, I often look like a pirate. At first, this was unintentional. Part of that is the utility belt I wear religiously; I NEED my tools.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like good things. I don't have favorites. I prefer books with action, movies with plot, music with vibrant instrumentation, and food that is not sweet and is spicy.
Six things I could never do without
Here's some things I LIKE to have: good, fresh food, an artistic means of self expression and people that wanna see or participate in that, a comfortable place to sleep, a reason to get out of bed, someone(s) that is a good reason to not get out of bed, an accordion that sounds nice, a pad of paper and something to mark on it with, a nice bike, something I don't understand and someone that understands it and likes explaining things, a metal locking suitcase full of cash and alternate identities

che' quasi niente que non posso esistere sensa, ma che molte cose che non vorrei esistere per troppo tempo sensa.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My brain is like a blender on eternal frappe': lots of thoughts constantly mix through and not one sits in the middle for too long.

I often am thinking about ways to make my house better.

Also, I worry about overpopulation and pollution, and what could be done on a morally conscious level to bring that down some. I am in the process of getting a solar array installed on my house. I'm partly freegan, so that helps reduce my environmental footprint as well. I also ride my bike and public transit to get places as much as makes sense.
On a typical Friday night I am
Regardless of what day of the week it is, I enjoy social interaction in open, somewhat unpredictable settings. Often this involves music, always adventure, never a deadset plan. This goes for any day I don't have too much that needs to happen, don't have to wake before eleven the following, and have a cohort and direction to head.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Let's retitle this "Things that I'm willing to tell everyone that might make them not like me, and if they don't, good riddance."

1. I do the freegan thing. This means I get some of my groceries out of dumpsters, and then make delicious meals based on what I can find. Still buy some stuff ( I've only found alcohol in the dumpster six or twenty times so far). I do this both because I am in touch with the fact that I don't make much money and would rather spend it on fun things that I cannot find in dumpsters, as well as lower carbon footprint. Plus, I don't have to feel guilty about eating fillet mignon if it was going to go to waste.

2. I had a vasectomy in 2013. In my opinion, there are simply too many other mouths on the planet already; making more people seems selfish and mean; in my opinion the likelihood of an economic, environmental, and social collapse during the lifespan of anyone created now is high. If you really feel the need to be a parent, please consider adoption!! I am, in the longterm scheme of things.

4. I like the concept of and often practice non-monogamy. If you have questions about what this means to me, feel free to ask!

5. I am a type 1 diabetic. This affects my ability to participate in some activities, such as hallucinogenic recreational drugs or hiking for months without coming in to society.
You should message me if
one ( or more) of the following applies:
1. You're a woman/ someone female-bodied and think we might hit it off ( I have dated several alt-gendered people, but have never been into someone who did not have a vagina).
2. You want to play some music- I'm usually down to jam.
3. You want to be paid in booze or massages to help me construct my house.
4. You want to give me lots and lots of money for no apparent reason or some reason I might be all right with.
5. You want to complain about having read such a long profile and ask for that time in your life back in the form of massages or a song.
