I am very spontaneous and loyal. I want to see the people I love in my life living up to their highest potential, and I love connecting over the process of life and being human. I love things that maintain their integrity (especially food and people), and I really love authentically connecting with people in a way that usually produces absurd silliness and awesome laughter. That said, I also really enjoy sharing silence and think that solitude is an important part of life. I work in Hayes Valley as the catch-all full time staff member/manager/accountant at a non-profit mental health clinic, and I'm heading back to school in the fall to get an MBA and MPA. I grew up here in the Bay Area, have lived a few other places in this world, and want to do a lot more traveling. Outside of work, I love being outside and getting away from the city into nature or into the ocean often, and am definitely looking for someone with a shared love of travel and adventure, and of packing up the car and taking off for as long as possible (basically Saturday and Sunday) without necessarily having a plan. I tend to have a lot of projects going on, and I enjoy staying busy with those, living a healthy life, and keeping up with friends and getting out to shows and social events, but I also love to sleep in and cook all day and have weekends where laying in the sun and reading are major priorities. I love the blues. I'm learning how to play the cello and to build furniture and to grow vegetables in my backyard. I am grounded and pretty down to earth (most of the time, and the exceptions involve expensive plane tickets), and I'm looking for a partner who generally enjoys life, is content and playful, and knows what he needs to feel successful and loved. I'm looking for someone who wants an awesome best friend and an amazing lover (because that's what I want). I think solid relationships are open honest and sexy; if that's something you're looking for, I'd love to hear from you!
