Love is so big and takes so many forms. I love everyone; those who identify as straight, queer, transgender, manly men, womanly women, and so on - but if I had to pick a "type", it would be nerds. I love smiles, especially the giant uninhibited ones that come straight from the heart. I'm very sex positive, love positive, and believe that everyone should be free to love without boundaries. I identify as queer, that's the word all the cool kids are using, and I'll use that until the next cool term comes along. You could say that I'm more interested in the tea than the cup. I strive to live with my heart and soul as open to the world as possible. You will find me to be honest and trusting to a fault. I have no shame. I strive to live life as an open book, and inspire others to do the same.
Science is my religion. The fact that life is an inherent property of the universe brings me great peace. Every living thing is part of an unbroken chain of life. We are star stuff; the same matter that beats in our hearts once made a star shine. Who needs more religion than that?
Portland has been my home for most of my life, and I love it! It is a blessing to know such a fun, weird city that is so remarkably close to an amazing variety of natural beauty.
The things I take seriously, I am very serious about. Everything else is play. I will make you laugh, and I am weird in what I believe are to be good ways.
The great outdoors plays a big role in my life. Hiking, camping, adventuring; getting myself into the thick of it, and taking it all in.
When I'm not out exploring the world, I'll stay busy always learning new things. What excites you? I would love to hear about it, no matter how esoteric it may be.
These days I'm extremely busy with all kinds of exciting projects, so if I take a little while to get back to you, don't despair. I'm polyamorous, dating multiple people, and it is very exciting; the world is bigger and more full of love than I ever imagined it could be. I strongly believe that people can explore love, intimacy, and the human connection together without exclusivity or exorbitant possessiveness. Love grows when shared, and the human heart has such limitless potential.
Some of the very important loves in my life are pdxphotolover, czr304, everydayglow, everyouthful, and DoctorMega; I am lucky to have these amazing people in my world, and share so much love with each of them.
Right now, I am a time where I am more self-focused than other-focused. Exciting things are coming into place for me, along with incredible challenges. Everything I am facing is bringing me tremendous growth. That said, I am always open to meeting new wonderful people as time allows!
I work to embrace the world as it is, without bais; to see everything we encounter, good and bad, pleasant and painful, all as manifestations of awakened energy. Anything and everything, from the greatest joy to the greatest heartache is a means by which we can grow and awaken further.
Don't be discouraged if you send me a message and I don't get back right away. I may think you are awesome and simply don't have the time to meet someone new at that exact moment in time!
I look forward to reinventing my personality based on your test answers to match what I believe you are looking for.
I'm equally likely to be stomping through the woods at night, exploring the columbia river gorge, or hacking away until dawn on some esoteric programming project of dubious practicality.
Right now I have found myself pursuing opportunities in hollywood working for a production company as their CTO, as a stills photographer, and special effects artist among other things - my job is awesome!
The works of Carl Sagan, Pema Chodron, my photography books,
classic sci fi, Richard Dawkins. I could go on and on; I have a
huge bookshelf full of books - which is turning into a smaller
shelf of books accompanied by a kindle.
I love just about every kind of real food, and I love eating new
things that I've never tried before. I am a crunchy peanut butter and pulpy orange juice kind of guy, with little respect for you smooth pulpless people. Mayonnaise can go fuck itself.
In terms of liquid consumption, my friends call me "the tea fairy", even though I work to make tea absolutely as manly as possible. Matcha is hardcore, yo. Coffee isn't real coffee unless it's locally sourced. Rum needs to be finely crafted.
There really needs to be a "Games" section, so I'll add: Gears of War trilogy, Chrono Trigger, Terranigma, Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy VI.
This section really should be open to quotations too, so I'll share a couple:
“Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”
“We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.”
"The only real failure in life is not to be true to the best one knows."
information" only barely, barely exists in my world - I consider this to be a great quality!
Oh, and I giggle like a little girl sometimes, but it's actually super manly the way I do it.
You'd like to go on a date!
Horse masks do not terrify you too much.
My potentially crazy schedule is something you can live with.
If you're willing to be the big spoon AND the little spoon - although if you're smaller than me, and the big spoon, I call that "jetpacking".
You want to see my wookiee, if you want to hear my award-winning wookiee howl, or if you're not put off by how many times I've somehow managed to mention wookiees or other strange noises in my profile.
