This above all: to thine own self be true. - Polonius, fm. William Shakespeare's Hamlet
Before you read any further please read this: At my core I am attracted to women with darker complexions... golden, bronze and black. To all the ladies here with pink or porcelain skin; you are absolutely beautiful, yet I am simply not drawn to you. Namaste.
I'm a pretty rockin' guy with his own share of idiosyncracies and quirks. Not perfect, but pretty amazing in my own right.

What I’m doing with my life:
Exploring, practicing, laughing, falling down, getting back up, shining, helping, giving without expectation (mostly), graciously receiving, loving, focusing, experiencing joy, working, dreaming, setting boundaries, opening my big mouth, eating crow, meditating, praying, singing, crying, eating new things (crow is not new)...
Doing my best (which keeps getting better) and making mistakes; learning as much from them as my current state of conscious awareness allows.
I’m really good at:
Showing up, on time.
Seeking new experiences.
Leading without improperly asserting.
Trivia and board games, as my ability to remember interesting but fairly insignificant information is considerable.
Making people laugh ...whether I want them to or not.
The first things people usually notice about me:
My baby-blues and "incredible" eye lashes.

Netflix: House of Cards, Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Parks & Rec, Dr. Who
Things I could never do without:
Good friends who will tell me when I'm f***in' up
Proper punctuation ("It's time to eat Grandma!")
I spend a lot of time thinking about:
The future of The Pale Blue Dot and how I can contribute in a positive way by being 'for', not 'against'.

On a typical Friday night I am:
With my beautiful kids, serving within my community, enjoying Netflix, enjoying a good book, or dining and conversing with my friends in their homes.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit:
I am willing to admit to all of it, but I choose not to share it here.
Coffee and jaw-wagging
You should message me if
...you are curious.
...you can make me laugh.
...you have (or ever been told you have) an 'exotic look'.
...you are an Aries, Leo, Libra, Aquarius, or a fellow 'Saj'.
...you are not in a hurry.
...you enjoy taking the lead in planning our next adventure.
...you be-a-freak where it matters the most. ;)
BONUS: You are an ENFP or ENTP, as I am an INTJ
And finally, at the risk of sounding arrogant...
I really want to be WOW-ed. In these last few years of dating, I have seemed to take the role of the "wow-er". I realized a few years ago that if I want to meet someone who is awesome-sauce personified, that I have to become the very same. I am, and it keeps getting better. I strongly believe in the importance of continuous self-improvement (mentally, spiritually and physically), mixed with a healthy dose of humility and self-acceptance for where I am at present. .
I don't want to chase you. I want to be challenged by keeping up with you. I want you to be challenged by keeping up with me. I want a friend, a partner, a lover, and a playmate.
Are you as comfortable in an evening gown as you are in the deep of the BWCA? Then you're my gal.
For a dream vacation, would you be absolutely torn to have to choose between exploring ancient ruins in South American jungles or two weeks in Paris? My kinda woman.
I want someone who dreams big, walks tall, and is willing to LEAP out of personal comfort in exchange for the big growth and experiences that await those who dare the leap.
