Just a good man looking for a genuine, passionate connection. I'm from the midwest but have lived in a few spots since then-Denver, Boston & overseas (Peace Corps). Seattle, however, is very much home now & has been for a minute. I'm a Social Worker & like to think that work reflects who I am. I smile, laugh & relax easily & have a passion for music, sunshine & the mountains. I like to run, play volleyball, shop for records, explore dive bars, backpack/hike, extend happy hours, revel in live music & have chilled, fun nights of dinner & drinks at home. I'm looking for someone relaxed yet passionate; liberal and open-minded. A woman I can make smile and can do the same for me.
What is something that people are surprised to find out about you? I was in the Peace Corps in Papua New Guinea.
If you could have a dinner party and invite any 4 people, dead or alive, who'd be coming? Erykah Badu, Jerry Seinfeld, JFK & Willie Nelson.
Where do you like to hang out? Smith, Moe Bar, Victrola, Nectar, my front porch.
My radio dial is usually tuned to: KEXP
If I could change one thing about Seattle, it would be: People would walk up and down escalators if they're able-bodied. And not be so damn complicit with this crazy jaywalking taboo. And all coffee shops would be required to serve actual coffee & not just espresso.
One book everyone should read is: "The Classic Slave Narratives"
One movie everyone should see is: When the Levees Broke
I consider myself an open-minded person, but my deal breakers are racism and arrogance. Spitefulness sucks too.
Something I learned from the last person I dated is mindfulness.
I want to make a t-shirt that says Social Workers do it better...
Design your ideal mate: the brain of someone conscious & insightful and the body of someone confident & sexy.
Something I said I'd never do but did anyway was try dating someone who lives in a different city.
My guiltiest pleasure is late night cookies.
The first section I turn to in the Stranger is music-up & coming.
When stuck in gridlock I browse my CD's.
The last show I saw was Vieux Farka Toure.
The quickest way to my heart is looking me in the eyes & showing genuine interest. The quickest way to my bed is to just get real close...or simply grab me. And in the morning, I like my eggs cooked -no eggs; just black coffee & something sweet.
It's Sunday morning at 10 a.m. If I'm not still sleeping, I'm drinking coffee & listening to jazz. Or maybe running.
When I die, I believe I will go peacefully & contentedly.
For delicious results, add one part herb and mix it with one part passion.
Michael Jackson was brilliant yet troubled.
I wouldn't sell my music collection for a billion dollars.
