My self-summary
Ok, let's do the deal-breakers first, and get that out of the way. I'm in a polyamorous, open relationship with the love of my life. I won't be leaving her, and she comes first in all things. I am a colon cancer survivor, still in recovery. I may be disabled for years, and walk on a cane. As such, I occasionally have to drop plans without warning, because I'm not up for them. Due to drugs I'm on, it is illegal for me to drive, so you would need to provide the transportation. I'm in my 50's, but at any given time I may well act much younger or much older than I am... usually younger (love comics, sci-fi, gaming, and other geeky things). If none of these are deal-breakers for you, read on...

Not here for hookups, but hey, if things happen, they happen! More looking for friends, especially flirty ones. I'm an incorrigible flirt, so incorrige me! That being said, sex is a particularly favorite activity, but I'm terrible at reading clues. So, if interested, hit me with a clue-by-four! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

Making a friend is more important than gaining a lover. If there is a connection, and they both happen, well, awesome! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Always looking for new friends and people to make art with. ๐Ÿ“ธ

I am not a sugar daddy. I'm more of an aspartame daddy. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ธ

I am or have been a photographer, event manager and promoter, filmmaker, writer, financial professional, salesman, jack-of-all-trades, and much more. Specialization is for insects. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Cancer survivor. ๐Ÿฅ I have learned that living is pretty damned awesome, and sometimes you have to laugh just to keep from crying. I'm still relearning my body after some very complicated surgery in March 2016. Recovery will take years. ๐Ÿค•

Due to medication, I cannot drive. I do not smoke (it killed both of my parents when I was young), nor do I do drugs (except a massive amount of prescribed ones). Chemo ravaged my liver, so I can no longer drink. I do not mind if you do any of these things, as it's not my life nor my place to judge anyone. I live in a big glass house, so I don't throw stones. ๐Ÿ˜‡

I'm the biggest geek you'll ever meet. I've run sci-fi cons, and help friends with everything from comic cons to steampunk events. ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ––๐Ÿป

Lord of the Rings in the streets, โš”
Game of Thrones in the sheets. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

I have a lot of friends. I mean, a LOT of friends. I love them... They've gotten me through some tough times. ๐Ÿ˜˜โค๏ธ

Again, I have a partner in an open relationship. I can date if I choose. We joke that, were we to conjugate our partnership: We have an open relationship, She is polyamorous, I am just greedy. ๐Ÿ˜ˆโค๏ธ

I am a student of the universe. ๐Ÿ“–

I like cheese. ๐Ÿง€

I overuse parenthesis and emojis. ๐Ÿ˜œ

Ask me anything.๐Ÿ˜Ž

What Iโ€™m doing with my life
Living it, as much as I can.

Having determined that it's me and mine against the world, I am plotting our attack...

I guess I'm figuring out what I'm doing with my life. I have the funny feeling that I'll be doing that until the day I die.

On a more concrete level, I cleverly disguise myself as a normal person, I work on my next photographic, filmmaking or writing project, and updating Facebook. I also volunteer for a non-profit regional Sci-Fi Conference, and I help out with a number of other SF cons and events (please see the above note about my being "geeky").

Also working on being the best me I can be. I'm getting there.
Iโ€™m really good at
All sorts of things. Try me.

Oh, you'd like more detail? OK... I'm a fine writer, speaker, and actor, and I seem to be very adept at making friends (I joke that "Women love me, and men all want to be my friend!" ๐Ÿ˜‰). I'm also quite funny (or at least I'll assume that everyone else is laughing WITH me, not AT me!).
The first things people usually notice about me
I walk on a cane currently. I lost a substantial amount of weight during my bout with cancer. But I'm still pretty good looking despite beating cancer... I think.

I've been told that my eyes, my smile, and my voice are all pretty distinctive (in a good way). I tend to be one of those people who other people gather around at parties... I have NO idea how or why this happens.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a huge fan of science fiction, fantasy, and horror. As I mentioned above, I volunteer for a sci-fi con here in the Philly area, PHILCON. I'm pretty much a big geek... but one with pretty good social skills (Um... I think...) ๐Ÿš€

I write, I'm a filmmaker, and I love a good conversation. I also spend way too much time tooling around the internet, and updating my Facebook page. I'm also a hobby gamer... D&D, miniature gaming, Carcassone, Settlers of Catan ("Do you have wood for sheep?"), and lots of other games. ๐ŸŽฒ

Among my favorite books are "Lord Of The Rings", "The Prophet" by Gibran, "Stranger In A Strange Land", the "Sandman" series and "American Gods" by Neil Gaiman, Harry Potter, A Song of Ice and Fire, and most of Shakespeare's works. Authors I enjoy include Asimov, Bradbury, Gaiman (who I personally think is the finest writer alive today), GRRM, Ellison, Heinlein, David Gerrold, Cory Doctorow, Charles Stross, John Scalzi, Peter David, Keith DiCandido, and a whole lot of others... but it's hard to find time to read these days. ๐Ÿ“š

Movies I enjoy are the Star Wars films, Blade Runner, Lord Of The Rings, Serenity, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Ray Harryhausen films, Universal Monsters, Marvel Comics films, Casablanca (probably the finest film ever made), PIXAR films, and many, many other movies. I'm a bit of a film buff. ๐ŸŽž

TV shows I watch include Mythbusters, Battlestar Galactica, Dr. Who, pretty much ANY Star Trek show (especially original series), Babylon 5, Agents of Shield, Game of Thrones, Westworld, and most of the line-up on the various versions of the Discovery Channel and History Channel, with a smattering of the Sci-Fi Channel thrown in. I also watch a lot of Netflix, Amazon, and On Demand. ๐Ÿ“บ

Music... I'm into most everything (my tastes can be best described as "quirky"), although pop country and hip hop / rap can be harder sells to me. I'm especially fond of classic rock and 80's new wave and 80's retro. I *REALLY* like celtic music.๐ŸŽถ

As for food... well, is it bad for me? Then I probably like it. ๐ŸŒญ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ•๐ŸŒฎ๐ŸŒฏ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿช (Hey... I need to keep my girlish figure...) of course, since my surgery, I have to be careful. ๐Ÿ˜
Six things I could never do without
In no particular order (except the first one);

My girlfriend and partner. โค

Internet access, and my computer. ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป

Friends and Family. ๐Ÿคœ๐Ÿป๐Ÿค›๐Ÿพ

My mental faculties. ๐Ÿค”

Sex. Or at least Flirting and making out. ๐Ÿ˜š

Laughter. ๐Ÿ˜†
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything I can... The universe is my classroom. ๐Ÿ““

I am, however a bit ADD, so... Oh, look! A squirrel! ๐Ÿฟ
On a typical Friday night I am
Wondering why this doesn't ask about Saturday... ๐Ÿค”

Anyway, I'm doing something... the "what" varies from week to week!

Some things include:

Watching something interesting on TV... preferably with friends. ๐Ÿ“บ

Hanging out with friends. ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ

Seeing a movie. ๐ŸŽž

Going out on a date. ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿผ

Or perhaps I'll be at a con. Among the ones I often go to are Balticon (Memorial Day Weekend), Wizard World Philly (May/ June), Arisia (January), Philcon (November... this one's my home-town con), and others. I'm often asked to be a speaker or panelist at them. They're sort of my little vacations from reality. *grin* ๐Ÿ‘ฝ

I sometimes go to kink events and munches. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

Or, I might just be sitting at home for a quiet night in. ๐Ÿ˜ด
The most private thing Iโ€™m willing to admit
Private? On Teh Intartubes? You keep using that word... I don't think it means what you think it means... ๐Ÿ™„

I have a Facebook page, like everyone else. If you have one and seem like cool people, and you ask, I may well friend you. (Of course, most of my postings are public, so you can read it without my "friending" you.) I post there A LOT. ๐Ÿ‘ค
You should message me if
You think that I might, by chance, be interesting. And you're interesting too. And you aren't looking for anything serious at this point. But I like people, and I like making new friends, and we'll see what happens.

While I'm not listed here as Kinky, or Pagan, or 420, that doesn't mean I'm not Kink-friendly, or Pagan-friendly, or 420 friendly. I'm pretty much just friendly! So please get in touch!

If you like SF/Fantasy, and other geeky things, then DEFINITELY get in touch! We'll probably get along wonderfully!
