At work, I manage safety operations for an alternative medical facility. I also work security/emergency medical at festivals and unique events throughout California and Nevada. This comes from a misguided youth spent sneaking into said festivals and events.
I've recently ended a long term relationship (not looking to dive into another one so soon but I'll never say never), moved back to Oakland and am enjoying seeing old friends and finding new ones to wreak havoc with. I'm poly-friendly and hope to meet others that are open and accepting.
I enjoy riding my motorcycle, making art, making food, making out, meeting interesting people, meditating on impermanence.

Food: I'm adventurous and will try anything thrice. Mostly stick to a vegetarian diet but do love to splurge on cured meats and stinky cheeses. I'm also one hell of a cook and enjoy dinner parties.
and sex...because I'm a guy and that's what we do.
If it's not a work night, then most likely I'm out being part of the problem - singing, snogging, swearing, sipping on adult beverages and wringing the last bit out of life's messy bar towel (which strangely tastes like kombucha).
I also enjoy being a homebody. Curled up on a couch or in bed with a book, maybe a movie...especially if its raining out, the sound washes over everything and leaves me in a trance. If its warm, I'll be outside splashing around and inhaling the smell rain creates as it falls on the hot asphalt.
