My self-summary
I've grown really comfortable in my own strange looking and beat up shoes. I'm not your typical Asheville but that's probably because I'd spent 20 years in the East Village/New York City before landing here in 2014. My soul has always been with nature so all the time in NY seems like a wild and crazy side show. It's not like I've always been a city boy - I've paid rent in Alaska, Maine, Vermont, and western Massachusetts, and I've backpacked through Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Colombia, Brazil, Costa Rica, Panama, Guatemala, India and Thailand. In fact, about 6 years ago I lived in S. America for 15 months. And yes, I've done Ayahuasca 6 times and looking forward to my next experience - but it'll probably be there rather than here so who knows when, if ever. But nothing holds a candle to WNC to me because I'm seriously never bored here - never. I love photography, cycling, mountain biking, hiking, camping, IPA's, food and music, just to name a few. And good people. I'm one of those eternally positive ones and fit with those who tend to roll with the punches than live by a set of rules or expectations. I subscribe to no organized religion I'm great in uncomfortable settings because I've always explored new territory and outside of my comfort zone. And it it's important to you, I'll make you laugh all the time. If not, we have no business being together b/c one of my strong talents will be lost. That would be just SO wrong.
What I’m doing with my life
I've owned my own legal recruiting business since 2002 and I've worked in the same industry since I was a puppy. And I love it. No, not "love" like being a lead guitarist, but i never mind working and it gives me the freedom to do whatever whenever. I'm always trying something meaningful and lasting. In 2016 alone I've begun gardening in a huge way, I raised a couple thousand worms by composting, I've become a parent of 6 chickens whom I've kept alive, I bought a mountain bike and use it and I'm not afraid to break a couple of ribs, either.
I’m really good at
photography, guitar (well, not THAT good :), deciding, making people laugh, bringing people together
The first things people usually notice about me
blue eyes and positive energy, and Gracie if she's with me. Well, they tend to notice her first.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I used to love to read but for the last year I've been in a rut. it goes in cycles - I can't put books down but when I do, they stay on the shelf for a while until I learn the love of it all over again. So if you have any amazing recommendations, do share it's what gets me started. Music? I love live music and it tends to be the default for any weekend unless something else takes its place. Eat super-healthy at home, but have little to no rules everywhere else.
The six things I could never do without
1. Gracie (my dog) 2. Road Bike/Mountain Bike 3. Guitar 4. Camera 5. Hiking boots
I spend a lot of time thinking about
i can tell you this, it's NOT politics.
On a typical Friday night I am
Good chance it's music and friends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I already said it. I'm the proud father of thousands of worms. Don't take that literally.
You should message me if
You're grounded -- as, if you have a true identity and at least think you know where you're headed. You want to stay fit for the rest of your life but at the same time you don't rule out your vices. You're open minded and you accept and embrace people who don't think like you do. And good conversation with the banter. I'm a sucker for an intellectual mind. Also- my photos r both current and dated so what u see us what u get. I've met people and what I saw was simply put -- different. Starting off on the wrong foot is...... Well, starting off on the wrong foot.
