My self-summary
I've lived a varied and interesting life. I've been a political organizer, a motorcyle messenger, a country hippie, a Rotary President, and many other things. For the last 30 years I've run my own auto repair businesswith five employees, and plans for expansion. I'm currently President of my housing cooperative, which I founded aver 25 years ago.
I like to learn new things. I started studying the saxaphone in my 40's and a few years later took up singing in a choir.
I've studied kung-fu [in my youth], Tai-Chi, and have intermittantly practiced Yoga, something I have gone back to recently. Right now I go togo to Tai Chi twice week and take hikes on the weekends.
Giving back to humanity has been a consistant theme through my life. One of the joys of owning my own business is that it allows me to fund raise for causes I want to support, from the Humane Society to helping cure blindness in Cambodia to funding a drama program at the local high school.
I love to travel, both in the outdoors and in foreign countries, exposing myself to different cultures and all sorts of environments, from the Black Rock desert to the back trails of the Sierras, from the Angkor Temples in Cambodia to the mountains of Peru. For the last ten years I've been on a path of personal growth and transformation. People who've watched me grow through this say I've changed more than anyone they know. I know its all been for the better. though frequently painful and difficult. Tantra is but one of the things I've studied.
One of the key things I've been learning about, and continue to learn about, is how to be a better partner.

I am thoughtful, adventurous, romantic and caring. Most of my partners have told me that I am the highest integrity person they've ever known. I tell the truth.
What I’m doing with my life
Growing my business, learning how to be better contributor to humanity, to be a better partner in relationships. Walking and training my dog. Searching for both short term partners and a life partner.
Maintaining my body- increasing my flexability, my muscle mass, loosing weight and clearing my mind. Starting again to practice Yoga. Studying Buddhism, learning to meditate.
Getting suppport and supporting the guys in my mens group.
Improving my skills-as a business owner, a marketer, a lover, a companion.
Going to the theater as often as possible.
Looking for more opportunities to go sailing.
Playing as much as possible.
Dating, searching for a partner in life.
I’m really good at
Giving massages. Listening. Touch and connection. Supporting my friends. Hearing criticism. Cooking. Accepting change. Finding adventures. Using my mind.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes. My smile. My shaved head. My earing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
More authors than single books-Michael Chabon, Tim Cahill, John Le Carre, Bernard Cornwall, Ken Kesey, Gore Vidal, Carlos Fuentes, Mark Twain. Andrew Vachss [when I can handle the darkness.] Dan Kennedy's business books. Some of my favorite single books are
the Master and Margarita, Catch 22, Stranger in a Strange Land, The Dark Side of the Light Chasers, The Wonder Boys. Rats, Lice and History was fascinating as was Enemy at the Gates, The History of the Mongol People.
Movies:The Godfather Trilogy. The Blind Side. Most of Robert Altman's movies, most of Stanley Kubrick's Movies. Saw Diner recently, thought it was great. Love musicals, esp Fred Astaire movies, Cabaret, Chicago. The old Bogart/Bacall movies were great. Lots more, am a big movie fan. Enjoy a good action film.
Food: Thai, Viet Namese, Italian, Mexican, French, seafood from all over,I just love good food. I see food as another adventure. Will sometimes try dishes just because I can't imagine what those flavors will taste like togethe
Six things I could never do without
Music. Good books. Friends. A chance to walk in nature. Contact with a female mind and body. A good glass of wine.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What sort of partner I'm looking for. How to grow into being a better partner. How to better market my business. Places I want to see. How things work. Why the world's as screwed up as it is.
On a typical Friday night I am
Often, but not always low key as I recover from my usual full week. Sometimes a party. A good meal, maybe a movie, maybe just staying home and taking it easy, either with my partner, a good friend or sometimes just by myself. If I'm in relationship,I start my evening by changing my energy and focus from work to open-heart so I can be fully present with my partner.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like to play in the kinky world
