My self-summary
I'm often filling my time with projects big and small, ... So why do I often feel like I'm not up to much? Any ideas??

I'm making a living for myself, teaching, singing, acting, and filmmaking. I'm a passionate, energetic, enthusiatic guy. I'm an actor, so maybe you've seen me onstage before... I was that guy with tons of energy, and the red hair. I love teaching, and I love learning. I could talk about acting theories for hours, but I also love to learn about your obsessions too. Passion bordering on obsession is what, I believe, fuels our souls.

And I tend to my beehives. Love those ladies, and their complexity fills me with wonder. Maybe I'm brewing some mead or writing a song, thinking about getting a dog, considering my first tattoo. Probably, I am listening to the Hamilton Soundrack. You should be too :)
What I’m doing with my life
Making a living as an acting and voice coach. Performing in a show every now and then. Saving up money to travel and see my family. Being the best me possible. (Corny but true)
I’m really good at
Tap dancing while in line at the grocery store.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have pointy elf ears. NO plastic surgery, I've been asked that before. "You're JEWISH? No way, I totally thought you were Irish!"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Currently Reading: the Kathy Mallory detective series. Ohhhh she's such a badass, and I just love Carol Oconnell's hardboiled, no punch-pulled writings. The Dune Series, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Jasper Fforde's Thursday Next Series (seriously, you HAVE to to read this), Jitterbug Perfume (Ahhhh Tom Robbins and your juicy sentences). Nonfiction: Jared Diamond's books (Guns Germs and Steel etc.), Carl Sagans Cosmos (his voice is what my Inner Jiminy Cricket sounds like), nearly every book on acting (a rabid collector), just started reading The Ethical Slut. one day I'll finish this list

Music: John Williams, The Who, Jason Robert Brown, Caravan Palace, Punch Brothers, Sylvan Esso .... and so much more. But I'm a little behind, and it would be great to meet people who would like to give me a little more music culture. Anything, really.

Movies: Spielberg's unknown masterpiece "Empire of the Sun", and once again, so much more

Food: The Soup. If you want to know what the soup is, go ahead and ask
The six things I could never do without
1.The Soup (mmmmm)
2. Self-Awareness
3.Music, Piano
4.HUGS HUGS HUGS
5.Snuggles
6. Bees. Yeah, definitely Bees.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What it is that makes me happy and fulfilled. I am so rich in experiences, friendship, and opportunities that sometimes I don't see what my options are. I work to take time every day to be grateful. Sometimes a challenging task, but always rewarding (and sobering).
On a typical Friday night I am
Rehearsing, performing, singing, seeing a play, Cooking something AMAZING!!!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Although I once had a piercing, I don't have any tattoos. Rare in Portland these days...
You should message me if
Honestly, if you enjoy spending time with a silly nerd. who sings, and regularly makes "yummy" sounds (kind of came with the voice training). Can be watching a silly movie one minute, struck deep in philosophical conversation another, and play-wrestling with a puppy dog another.

Do you trade massages? I give em good, but love em in return.

If you are playfully serious, seriously playful, maybe you snort when you laugh, perhaps you want to make music with me? You want a buddy to get muddy with, make an adventure happen. Are you also into beekeeping, cause if so we could talk for hours.

If you are someone who wants to play like 9 year olds and later wax philosophical over a glass of wine, then maybe we should hang out.

AALLLSOO... I've recently added "Long-term dating" to my list. Mostly looking for friendly people to go on dates with, with the loose potential of something more. I very rarely am into one-night stands, and would rather have sex be not the only reason we are connecting.

Lastly, ( for those of you who actually read this far) I'm doing the non-monogamy thing. I'm new to it, and figuring out what that means for me. I'm not thinking that finding the right person will "make me monogamous", so I ask you not to have that expectation. And if you are practiced and comfortable in the poly world, I'm looking for guidance. (Guidance? Is guidance the right word? Sounds a little too "how-to" for me... Oh well...)
