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:
Low-lit Mexican restaurants with good margs
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
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!
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.
From another culture or country (or have lived in one)
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)
A fun drunk
A great communicator
Shy but curious about the world
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)
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)
