My self-summary
I generally do not incline to talk or think about myself long enough to be able to describe myself. So I'll just go with what other people have said about me:

Renaissance man: loves arts and literature on the one hand, and sports and the wilderness on the other
Como agua para chocolate: connoisseur of coffee and food; likes to lose himself in cooking; tactile and affectionate; great kisser; passionate lover
Self-made man: orphaned at the age of 14, co-breadwinner to a family of five, became Finance Manager in an international firm then left the corporate world to become an academic.

And perhaps a few facts:
I am a bit of a nomad. I grew up in the Philippines, lived in Singapore, Indonesia, Germany, England, South Korea, Scotland, and now the USA. I don't really have one place that I call home.

I just moved to San Diego in August 2016, and I'm hoping to meet some new friends in the city.

What I'm looking for:
Fit active mature men for outdoor activities, substantial conversations, cultural experiences...

In spite of the first impression my profile is wont to give, I'm really rather laid-back. If there's chemistry, we could take it up or down to whatever feels right.
What I’m doing with my life
I am thinking and writing about the value or significance of difference, teaching introductory courses in moral and political philosophy, and immersing myself in American culture.
I’m really good at
writing, cooking, listening, bearing witness, being there for others, articulating my thoughts and emotions, asking questions, kissing
The first things people usually notice about me
eyes, smile, style
The six things I could never do without
* Beautiful souls / Free spirits *

{ { { { { { { { { Silence } } } } } } } } } }
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how language shapes our lived experiences, the redemptive role of art, the utility and tyranny of our concepts and categories, fear and loathing in America, the dynamics of online attraction
On a typical Friday night I am
- working on a paper
- watching a film or a performance (theater or concert )
- having casual or deep conversations with friends
You should message me if
spiritual chemistry
- you're a self-effacing adventurous spirit;
- you're looking for an outdoor sports/adventure partner (strenuous hiking, rock-climbing, mountain expeditions); or
- you're a bodhisattva warrior with more than two hands to show for it.

intellectual chemistry
- you prefer to discuss and examine ideas or experiences rather than merely exchange serial reports on what you or other people were doing yesterday or would be doing tomorrow;
- you can hold your own ground in a heated intellectual discussion without taking things personally.

sexual chemistry
- you know how to solve the mind/body problem in the bedroom;
- you can seduce someone with your shirt on;
- you are laid-back and can just go with the flow (e.g., a monk/pirate with a charming smile and a sense of humour).
