Down to earth, practical, somewhat spiritual guy looking for companionship and eventually a long-term relationship. I have a creative soul and have bounced between high-tech and creative careers all my life. Currently I'm a programmer at a terrific software company in SF, commuting from Petaluma 4 days a week and loving my job. I'm hoping to relocate to SF sometime soon. I'm not a typical techie, though... I have pretty good communication skills (anyone who hangs out with programmers will smile at that comment) and love the humanities. In addition to reading sci-fi/fantasy (typical) I also enjoy reading literature like A.S. Byatt and Barbara Kingsolver (atypical). I don't spend my spare time programming (which would be typical) - I save that for the office; I'd rather be hiking, doing photography, shopping/exploring, or watching TV while designing patterns for the handknitting industry. Yep, I'm quite versatile... but prefer bottom ;). Looking for someone who is kind, generous, financially and emotionally stable, and more interested in spending quality time with someone special rather than hanging out at bars. I can't dance! *sob* I'd love to find someone who can take me travelling around the world as well as someone to cozy up to at night while watching awful reality TV while eating decadent chocolate.
