Hello! I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon and live in Olympia, Washington. I'm a nonprofit founder/executive director and also self-employed as a business consultant for organizations in the psychology, mental/behavioral health, personal development, and human/social service fields.
My hobbies and interests include: playing drums/percussion/guitar/bass, songwriting and singing, acting/theatre, improvisation, cooking, gardening, running, exercising, outdoor recreation and adventures, laughing, loving, education and life long learning, personal growth, and working for a positive social purpose and life mission that benefits the common good.
My goals and aspirations are connected to being the change I want to see in the world. My hopes are to inspire creativity, compassion, empathy, healing, and a meaningful life purpose within my circle of friends, family, and community. I do this through music, creative arts, performance, humor, outdoors in nature, and entrepreneurship.
I am a sensitive, strong, intelligent, caring, and intuitive guy with a fiery heart and soul! I like to explore and feel the intensity and sensuality of passionate chemistry, connection, lust, love, romance, dating, and sex.
My taste in music ranges across the genres, from indie and hard rock, metal, and industrial/techno, to hip hop, jazz, funk, blues, and more.
I love this quote: "The aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware, joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely aware." -Henry Miller
I think a first date can be formal or informal depending on what feels right in the moment and based on what the people involved want and need. It could be spontaneous and unconventional or well-planned. It might involve good food, drinks, coffee, movies, music, conversation, adventures, outdoors, indoors, romance, nakedness, and anything or everything in between! Life is short and we only live once -- so make the best of it!
