My self-summary
I moved to Oakland and live happily ever after with an awesome guy named Vij. So I am on here for friends and because I meet people who do shamanic work on here. Equally at home in a mosh pit or mansion, I am pretty complex and frustrate most people by fitting no stereotype. I have habits, but these change. I generally tend to cultural and intellectual life, hate superficiality. Though still in training, shamanic work is my greater purpose in life. If your curious about this, feel free to contact me. I'd say I am just a normal guy despite this; I am and I am not. It isn't an ego thing, most guys run for cover.

I enjoy individual sports a lot. I am usually on my bike. I also hike, backpack, play tennis (badly), lift weights, swim, jog, kayak, boogie board, practice yoga, ski, and I am learning to surf, o.k. I'm trying to learn.

I am very social, really enjoy conversation, but I also spend a lot of my time with a few close friends and can read alone for hours/ hike alone for days. These days I am really exploring, seeing live music, checking out minimalist dada videos. I just changed from law to occupational therapy.

I am trying to fit, into a box, and can't
What I’m doing with my life
Going to school.

Working for good, not evil.

Leading shamanic rituals.
I’m really good at
Riding a bike, giving my opinion while being really curious about yours, Hungarian and French, philosophy- even the nitty-gritty stuff, history and culture, especially music, art and film. Arcane shit and lore, lit. - I write a bit, and enjoy talking about it along with most subjects.

Love food but will basically eat what you put in front of me especially if it is on the healthy side or contains piles of sugar. I am a man of both intensities.
Six things I could never do without
I was in the Peace Corps. That and many other experiences have proved that I can live without anything. I really like coffee and love(all kinds) however.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What my role is on the planet.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm just not typical. My Friday nights have changed dratically and will again. Good thing about school is I go out Thursday nights like a local. Usually I see live music. If not, hang with East Bay DJs, shoot pool,clubs, art openings, readings,parties whatever.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I prolly already said too much.
You should message me if
I am not looking for someone exactly like me, though I do like passionate guys. By that I mean they are passionate about something/things. Like music of any kind. Enjoy conversation. Read books. Have an interest in mysticism maybe but not necessarily. Are who you are. Be honest. Be emotionally available. We've all been through some shit. Admit it cuz that is a relationship. I have no interest in shallow people.

A couple of people are more interested in the shamanic work I do. Just let me know as I am happy to talk about it.
The two of us
