I'm a silly bastard and I love to laugh. I have a very active imagination. I'm very laid back and extremely hard to offend. I don't have a lot of patience for drama. Save drama for the stage, and we're cool!

I love to travel, and I plan to see as much of the world as possible before I die. I've only been to Thailand and Mexico so far. Travel is my biggest passion. I want to experience as many different cultures as I can.

I have a great interest in the culinary world and would love to learn to cook like a chef, but don't want to be one professionally (you bust your ass very hard for too little money). I can cook some mean Thai food (which I learned in Thailand)!

I've been playing guitar for about 25 years and I also have a sitar that I dabble with. I do write songs and play cover songs, and will fill out a music profile soon so you can hear me. I like to explore politics, history, religion, science, and other things that show me how things came to be as they are, and why they are that way. I'm very interested in finding ways to make them better for everyone.

I'm not religious, but am open minded about spirituality, as long as it makes some kind of sense and isn't overly foofy.

I'm politically non-partisan, yet left-leaning where most issues are concerned. I see partisanship as just another form of bigotry and another way to divide people rather than get them together to create solutions to the problems we face. Pundits and the media are cancerous to rational thought and effective solutions.

I am attracted to all that is unusual, weird, odd, eccentric, and otherwise quite interesting. I like to take my imagination as far as I can, and explore beyond cultural limitations, taboos, and any restrictions. This gives me a certain "moral flexibility", however there is one rule I seek to live by: Never harm the person or property of a non-consenting other. I feel that as long as this rule is followed, people should be able to do as they please.

I am a bit shy when you first meet me, but once we know each other and I can sense that you're not easily offended, you'll find that I am quite outgoing, silly, friendly, and accepting. I tend to attract friends that are also somehow eccentric. I love the freaks and weirdos of the world.
