My self-summary
I'm partnered in a non-monogamous relationship and looking to date others in similar situations or those accepting of consensual non-monogamy. Sapiosexual.

Music plays a big role in my life. But so do other things that make my mind happy.
What I’m doing with my life
I've spent most of my academic and professional life working in the fields of plant ecology, conservation and ethnobiology.

I've played music part-time for a big part of my life. Now, I focus on the accordion and think that this often maligned instrument is making a bold comeback.

I ran NCAA cross country and middle distance track & field once upon a time. My masochistic tendencies have mellowed since then.

I'm currently learning how to rid myself of the enigmatic Lyme disease. Dealing with the challenges and all that crap with a smile on my face.
I’m really good at
Critical thinking. Scrabble and Boggle. Popping bubble wrap. Playing accordion. Identifying wild plants. Playing devil's advocate. Exposing double standards and hypocrisies (in myself and others).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Movies: The Last Picture Show, Best in Show (Everything Christopher Guest), Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Dead Man, Blue in the Face, Blazing Saddles, Wings of Desire, Coen Bros, David Lynch, Jim Jarmusch, Wes Anderson, Werner Herzog, that great locally made indie film that you haven't discovered yet.

The six things I could never do without
music, intellectual stimulation, high fives, a good roll in the hay, chocolate and music again.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the hows and whys.
On a typical Friday night I am
with my ear to the ground, listening for a good time.
You should message me if
you don't have a smug and/or condescending profile and you have a healthy dose of humility and empathy. Or if you think that being coy and passive is lame. Worse case scenario -- I'm that townie that tells tall tales at the end of the bar.
