I am an empathic, considerate and intelligent soul-searcher. I seek a deeply meaningful life. I am a great conversationalist who can explore the mundane in the shallows or go deep into existential and spiritual topics. I am also a joker and a trickster with a very irreverent sense of humor and I love to laugh. I use "spicy" language (I often curse not like a sailor but a pirate). I love to shock and awe. I am a man of many interests and talents, with many lifetimes worth of experiences. I crave intellectual discussions. I love to converse and get to know interesting people. I can be outgoing and engaging, and at times I prefer to quietly observe.
I am a night owl and I keep busy pursuing my creative interests. I make drums and paint them with animal totems. I sell my art online and at fairs and markets. I play several instruments and I am the lead singer of the local band, Static Confuzion. I recently published my first novel, Earthkeeper: Awakening at Spider Rock, and I am working on the 2nd book in the series. I teach private music and art lessons. I also work part time as tour guide running trips through Sedona, Grand Canyon, Navajo country, and Apache Trail. I'm so blessed and happy to have found traditional employment doing something I love so much, using my knowledge of native culture and history, and being in nature so often. Obviously I stay quite busy, but I would make time to spend with the right person.
I share custody and spend regular time with my kids, and I devote all of my attention to them when we are together. I'd like to keep my life with them safe from becoming emotionally intwined with any friendship/relationship, as I hope you would do with your kids, until things were to develop into something very serious down the road.
I'd like to meet a compassionate, self actualized woman who is secure enough in who she is to allow me to be who I am. Ideally, we would meet as we are and grow together. She would be beautiful inside and physically attractive to match.
Ideal relationship: We would be content with our similarities and respectful of our differences; live without jealousy, preoccupation with appearances or social status climbing. Our relationship would be fun, easy going, patient, supportive, and reciprocal.
A great date consists of chemistry, connection, intrigue, and great conversation. I prefer first dates to be over coffee or drinks or a meal. I like to spend time together in quiet, serene settings with elements of nature, like parks or bodies of water where we can converse comfortably, naturally, and honestly without pretense or self-conscious hangups.
