I am a stable, unconventional, competent, drama free man who has taken life's winding & self guided path, finding meaning and happiness along the way.
I am self made, self sufficient, self employed, well traveled, non-bureaucratized and a lot of fun.
Over the course of my life, I have been a renovation artist, a college teacher, a real estate developer, a yoga studio owner, a community builder and a landlord. I own a ridiculously huge assortment of tools from virtually every construction trade, and know how to use them all, well.
I socializing in mostly "alternative" communities, practice ethical non-monogamy, identify as a Polyamorist and have explored various types of "open" relationships, for over 20 years. Over that time, I have come to understand that there are many forms of "open" and many forms of closed. I believe what a relationship looks like should be decided, ethically & honestly, by the people in the relationship and nobody else.
I am not into televised sports, chain restaurants, clothing labels or most other mainstream culture.
Rather, I am constantly learning & a huge documentary watcher. Over the last ten years I have watched thousands of documentaries & foreign films. Frequently watched subjects include; The environment & the effects of mankind on the earth, Economics, Peak oil, 20th Century history, Sociology, Government, Social Liberties, Etc. I also enjoy Independent films & cerebral television with good production value (ie, Breaking Bad, House of Cards, American Horror Story, Weeds, Game of Thrones, Firefly) NPR & PBS
My hobbies, interests & talents are diverse. Pets, Photography, Relationships, Sensuality, Massage, Art, Home Renovations, Small Business, Festivals, Dancing, Music, Fire Spinning & Flow Arts, the Environment, History, Sociology, Humanity, Permaculture & occasional Kink.
My diet is mostly home cooked foods & rarely comes out of a box. I try to avoid high fructose like the plague that it is, preferring to eat healthy, real, home cooked food over "food product."
I am communicative, nurturing, honest and loyal to my friends. I do not tolerate, people who lie, steal or who are otherwise narcissistic, and am respectful of others, understand boundaries, both following and setting them. Integrity, communication, honesty & mutual consent are guiding principals.
Currently, I live with three housemates in one of the 4 adjoining houses I own, leaving time to do the things I am really passionate about, including activism, teaching, mentoring, learning, raising urban free-range hens and participating in the local Burning Man community.
