Looking for a fun sweetheart: someone with integrity, loyalty, intelligence, awesome sense of humor and compassion for others.
Me: Mostly mellow and laid-back with a pretty regular nerdy side. So... everything is fine: sunshine + hike + beach + vino + laughter and then all of the sudden I'm talking about black holes and then... consciousness as a mathematical absurdity. We'll be listening to classic rock or old metal or irish punk or Ray or old jazz and we're all fine and then... I'm tripping on solipsism or the tyranny of language. Then I'll tell you why Jesus is bogus. Then I'll tell you why he's a bad ass @#$%^&*. Then I'll tell you I'm agnostic. I need good, intelligent conversation pretty frequently interspersed with a healthy dose of laughter.
I'm a pretty damn good guy, semi goofy and semi screwball, but overall I'm a solid, good dude, friendly and loyal. I love all the romantic stuff and I know my way around most power tools. My friends have described me as warm, patient, funny, generous and forgiving. All of which are things I would love to find in a woman.
I also love nature and traveling. Could definitely use more of that in my life. I love the Sierras, Joshua Tree, Big Sur, and I especially love deserted California beaches in the fall after all the tourists are gone and the Santa Anas are blowing. I've been overseas a few times, mostly to Europe. Spain and Ireland are probably my favorite places so far. Would love to get to Thailand someday.
Here's work stuff if you're interested: http://www.kristianolson.com
I'm mostly doing contract and freelance graphic design for various clients. Been doing it for about 18 years. It's a lot of work, so I'm pretty busy, enough so that I have to hire subcontractors. I also had a good stint as an illustrator / fine artist a few years ago and will be jumping back into that in some form soon, but with my eyes open this time.
That's it for now.
