My self-summary
A note about communication. I love to chat and I love to meet. My goal is always to meet. I respect boundaries. I invite you to message me.

Compersion – a feeling of bliss for a partner’s bliss.
Compersion is something I experience and something I seek.
Giving compersion allows me to experience the ecstasy that my partner feels. Receiving compersion frees me to love my partner even deeper.

I'm interested in deep connection. Long term relationships preferred.

1. I enjoy some forms of casual relationship. By this, I mean I can be in a relationship that is platonic by most cultural standards but still includes intimacy that doesn’t fit most traditional guidelines.

2. I enjoy being in a deep, healthy, loving long-term relationship. Some food for thought ---

Communication is important and comes in many forms: verbal, body language, acts of kindness and thoughtfulness. "5 Love Languages" is a good starting place: Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Receiving Gifts, Acts of Service, and Physical Touch.

I truly wish that binary genderization didn't exist. Having said that, I generally identify as cis-male. At various times I might be described as switch, bisexual, musical, educational, open, studious, entrepreneurial, geeky, silly, serious, funny, queer and intelligent. Intelligence is important to me! I am drawn toward people who are motivated by knowledge and I adore a good conversationalist.

I'm able to live in the present. I accept the past but don't dwell there. I look forward to the future but don't fret about it (that was a nerdy guitar joke).

I have been gainfully self-employed for decades. I bring music into people's lives through education and performance.

I am atypical. I am fun. I am not for everybody. I love long deep discussions. I enjoy my time on this earth. Shouldn't we all?

I'm open.
Open to new ideas.
Open to innovative thought
Open to answering any questions.
Open to a myriad of experiences.

I've had at least a half-a-myriad of experiences.

What does spirituality mean? For me, it’s something beyond the physical. Sometimes the word metaphysical just doesn’t cover it. It’s something that I think about. It’s something that I participate in. It’s something that I experience. It’s not something that I talk about casually.

I like to dance. I'm not a trained dancer. I have an awesome sense of rhythm.
What I’m doing with my life
I teach and play music. I'm involved in the continuing effort of a nonprofit music school in Portland. One of the most exciting projects I've ever been involved in.

I recently opened a music education studio in NE Portland. This is an exciting new entrepreneurial project.

I'm working with various professionals. I'm not always paying them in currency. I love to work on the barter system when possible. I work and play "outside the box".

Community outreach and involvement are important in my life. Music education is essential. Social change (sex-positive issues in particular) is one of my passions. What is sex positivity? It might not be what you think. Sex positive is very different from "sex focused". Let's talk about this.

Urban walks are fun. Animals are fun and adorable. Concerts, art exhibits, theater and lectures are fun and enlightening. Dancing is a blast!
I’m really good at
Teaching, listening, learning, watching, participating, performing and creating.
