My self-summary
I'm a crafty, musically inclined, artistic, vegetarian, wanna-be jack-of-all trades, martial artist, life-long student and educator. (I think that sums up enough to give a picture). I'm a bit shy, but i will open up. I am honest, kind-hearted, and stubborn.

I enjoy movies in moderation, but especially love to craft and play board or card games, talk, cuddle. Want to cook a meal together? Play a game? Go on a walk or hike or bike ride? Listen to NPR? Sing or play music? Communicating is really important to me, but I love to just chill too.

I'm looking for casual dates, hook-ups, make-out or cuddle buddies, but definitely open to something longer lasting if the connection is there. I live with a lover, but we are both very open about seeing other people. He currently has another steady date, and I'm looking to have some more fun with some new people and get to know Philly better, as I am still relatively new to being here!

I am a transgender man, so if you are not into that, that's cool. I just like to be up front about that to avoid any awkwardness later. Respectful questions welcome.
What I’m doing with my life
That is such a good question...

I am most successful at making it up as I go along.

My life is filled with a bunch of beautiful people, that inspire me and motivate me daily.

Recent social justice work highlights: studying about decolonization, resisting white supremacy culture, Philly's role as a sanctuary city.

I am a lighting artist for a Eurythmy ensemble

I'm a musician (mostly singing and some piano with a bit of guitar)

I spend a lot of time looking at, admiring and climbing the trees as well as my fellow human beings.

Contemplating what I'm doing on this planet, and what is needed of me.
I’m really good at
things involving the use of my hands: shoulder rubs, sign language, origami, crafts of all sorts (sewing, knitting, crochetting, etc), playing instruments, painting, drawing, boot blacking, doing dishes, cleaning

Finding things that are lost.

Listening.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm super kind, thoughtful and helpful. I'm always mistaken for younger than I am.

Sometimes its that sparkle in my baby blue eyes...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Recently I've been really in to reading Philosophy. Current book: 'Seeing, Knowing and Believing"

I love singing music of all sorts, balkan and georgian music, shape note music.

I can listen to Jeff Buckley for hours.

I love pesto, (basil makes its way into everything I cook...), but I think my top food choice is pizza (preferably of a home made variety, but I'll take it any way it comes. YUM! But I am always up for some good Indian food, or ethiopian. Yum yum!
Six things I could never do without
singing
nutritional yeast
clean underwear/socks
martial arts
my hands
stationary
I spend a lot of time thinking about
human beings. threefold social order. reincarnation

What I'm doing with my life

How to actually meet people not on the internet. lol
On a typical Friday night I am
Studying, playing the piano, being artistic, dancing, sleeping.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been told I sometimes come on too strong. I'm just very exuberant at living in the moment, and appreciating life. My enthusiasm comes across a bit too intense for some people. I like to live life to the fullest. It's hard to know how much time we all have left so I want to make the most of it!
