I currently manage a division at an efficiency/renewable energy company. Before that, I finished my Masters in Philosophy in Belgium. Before that I did environmental, human rights, and election work for about 10 years.
I paint. I write. I love bombast, wit, play, and people barreling down on life. I often find my head in the clouds (as my brain doesn't have an off-switch), until my senses compel me back to earth... which happens as a hedonist of sorts, open to and affirming of all the pleasures of life. I'm very much a beer aficionado (yeah craft beer!), homebrew (just finished a Pannepot clone), and love to cook (anything). I also edit reviews for a small videogaming website, am a practicing museum junkie, and I love riding my bike (to work, but really anywhere - preferably with some wind in my hair).
I like candor, thought, creativity, authenticity, care, passion, curiosity, singularity, intensity, taste, deformation, left wing politics, play, desire, open eyes, attention to what moves you, rigorous ideas, appreciating moments, inspiration, being overcome, the little things, overcoming, unfolding worlds...
I grew up religiously evangelical but jettisoned that long ago. My wife, MegsinMass, and I enjoy other partners, so I'm looking for extra fun and connection (more bonus points for non-monogamous / polyamorous gals).
