My self-summary
NOTE: Though I'm open to a committed relationship when the time and person are right, I am planning to be in Asia over the winter to travel and record a new album and will only be in Los Angeles for the next three months, returning early next year....so for now in L.A. looking for new friendships, activity partners and casual dating situations. I also hope to make new friends in the places I am planning to visit and live temporarily.

Satu, dua, tiga, empat...English...go!

I'm a record producer, label owner and multi-instrumentalist by trade, which gives me a lot of control over my own time. Adventurer by nature...I've spent a lot of the last three years, between projects, traveling the world (20 countries in that time, plus six cross-country road trips).

I've had a very unusual life and am a mix of quirky and grounded as a person so it's hard to predict the people I will click with - I cast a wide net. I get along best with folks who take people and things as they are (which isn't the same as putting up with b.s.).

My mom was my hero, and she was a great believer in compassionate non-judgment (this is not the same as having no standards). Taking people for who they are is what I strive for and the quality I like best in other people.

Things that I find fun:
Hiking
Yoga
Low-lit Mexican restaurants with good margs
Brilliant conversations
Road trips
Solving mysteries
Lingering in bed with company that makes it worthwhile
Putting people at ease, and hearing their stories
Speaking other languages and hanging out in other cultures
Adventure

It sometimes take a while to get me, but I have enduring qualities.

I would love and appreciate something serious with a good woman, but I have to be honest - getting enough face time in L.A. to actually get to know someone is very difficult. Doubly so via a dating site. Meaning no offense, but we do seem to live in a culture that values flakiness (which I don't). In my experience, the people that actually want to put in the time to build something serious in this city are rare.

All pictures are recent and dated.

If you are intrigued, hope to hear from you - but do read the "message me if" below first - particularly the part about angry, fearful, or defensive folks. Love to you if that's who you are, but we're not going to get along - those are not directions I want to follow in my life. Otherwise, I'm sure we would have a blast!
What I’m doing with my life
I forged my own path, and I do what I want. I work to improve every day, to live better and to be better. Life is better, however, when it's shared.
I’m really good at
Nearly anything I put my mind to. Though I have to admit, I do knock things over a lot.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm a funny guy! "Funny haha or..." "um..."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: Bill Murray, John Cusack, and Buster Keaton. Wait, those are actors.

Actors: Animal House, Dances With Wolves, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Caddyshack, Sullivan's Travels, Caddyshack, Groundhog Day, Caddyshack, The Dead Talk Back, Starfighters. I mean, um, I really love indie films with unpronounceable foreign names. Honest I do.

Shows: Breaking Bad, MST3K, That '70s Show, HIMYM (1st 2 seasons), WKRP In Cincinnati, Better Call Saul (10 episodes wtf) \

Music: '70s soul, '60s garage rock. My specialty as a musician is playing live instruments as opposed to programming, and I'm not a fan of non-organic sound in general.
The six things I could never do without
Chapstick, diverse friends, chapstick, red wine, chapstick. And one other thing.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm thinking...
On a typical Friday night I am
5:30 - 7 will find me at Diego Gesualdi's meditation class at the Yoga Loft in Woodland Hills. After that I'm up for grabs.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I spent a year hanging out mostly with lesbians.
You should message me if
YES - Absolutely message me if you are:
Open-minded
From another culture or country (or have lived in one)
Goofy
Self-employed or living an unusual life
Religious/spiritual but not politically conservative (agnostics and atheists are welcome too - this is about ethics and character more than belief)
Quirky
Nice
Funny
A fun drunk
A great communicator
Shy but curious about the world
Sapiosexual

NO - Please do not message me if you are:
Here for checklist fulfillment - relationships are about two peoples' needs, not one.
Angry, or mostly motivated by fear.
In poor physical condition (not talking about body shaming or being a fitness Nazi - I prefer curvy to skinny actually - just not taking good care of yourself overall)
Overly material.
A mean drunk
Uptight (I don't mean sexually - I'm fine waiting for someone I like - but just unable to be allow things and people to be what they are)
Quick to offend rather than understand (this is a big deal to me - please - good communication over drama. If there's a problem, let's talk about it)
