Realistically: a cuddly nerd/creative with a penchant for un-PC thoughts
I'm an old soul and a kid-at-heart. These days, I'm drawn more to authentic connection, aliveness, and beauty in all its forms. I converse easily amongst academic types but have opened up my range a lot. In relationships, I like to be warm and silly, as if we were slightly drunk as a default state. Note the 'as if'
- part-time bioenergy r&d, part-time musician
- playing at gospel church, funk/rnb jams, occasional touring
- salsa dancing
- developing healthy habits that increase aliveness
- random new urban adventures
I'm getting into mindfulness as well, but giving up steak is not going to happen
Louis Ck, Raymond Carver, Chekhov, Anthony Bourdain, NPR, Marc Maron WTF, Annie Hall, and yes, Anchorman. Or maybe Step Brothers, tough choice!
