My self-summary
I'm an active, fun, creative, musical, intellectual, adventurous man who's looking to find a partner who wants to share the journey with me. I try to balance out my left brain analytical with my right brain creative intuitive side. I am a multi-instrumentalist musician and I would love to find a partner who would like to make music with me (or at least you gotta listen 'cause I'll be playin'!) I'm creating a unique path and seeking a partner who sees life as a creative and spiritual adventure.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm living in Berkeley, working as a Civil Engineer doing innovative sustainable design projects. I play music and get out for adventures. I have lived, worked and traveled many places around the globe including several extended stints in Asia and Latin America. I have a special fondness for India and for islands and tropical environments in general. I like hiking, biking, camping and exploring new places. I like climbing mountains, biking through deserts, hiking through forests. I see and feel the divine in nature and in music and in relationship.
I’m really good at
I have a great passion for music, both listening to it, going to concerts and playing music. I play a number of musical instruments, guitar, harmonica and sitar mostly, but I also tinker with mountain dulcimer, bouzouki, tambur, ukulele, hand drums, piano, saz, banjo, and others, and I love to sing. I perform occasionally, usually for friends or for open mics. I integrate my physical and spiritual practices through yoga and mediation.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm very tall (6'-6"), so I stand out in a crowd. I suppose I have an outdoorsy, creative, somewhat eccentric vibe. I can be somewhat serious and analytical at first, but once I get into the conversation, I loosen up pretty quick.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - mostly spiritual related or travel/adventure stories.

Movies/Video - I like documentaries and movies that make me think and expand. I like movies that explore alternative ways of being and viewing the world. I like movies that make me feel...

Music - a lot of stuff, Grateful Dead, Neil Young, Pink Floyd, classic guitar related rock music, world music, ambient, trance music, kirtan.... I play a bunch of instruments and like to play music similar to what I listen to. I like to sing and chant and play drums and play strings...

Food - I love Mexican, Indian, Thai, Italian...
Six things I could never do without
Friends and loved ones
Musical instruments (guitar and sitar)
A beautiful outdoor physical environment around me
A stimulating intellectual environment
Sunshine and warm days
Exercise and adventure
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm a big thinker and it's good to get beyond thinking and into the body through activities such as yoga and music and exercise and intimacy. I like to ponder spiritual and philosophical topics. I have a huge collection of quotes. I think words have great power and I try to feed myself the ones that serve me best.
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends, I like hanging out with friends, dinner parties and barbecues, having a music jam marathon, making dinner and watching a video, going to an art crawl, going bowling, exploring something...
