I play music, which costs money, and produce computer graphics, which makes money. I spend my spare time with a book, a friend, a record, or a dog. I probably drink too much coffee, and seriously can't go a day without a piece of dark chocolate. I enjoy an occasional glass of wine or mango martini and am happily and successfully a non-smoker and will do most anything to avoid a backslide. I generally avoid malls and chain restaurants, and you will never find me dancing or mingling at a meat-hanger/club on the weekends?in fact, I stay away from downtown minneapolis at night unless there is a can't-miss show at the Entry, which happens less and less often. I'd like to meet a kind, intelligent, funny, good-natured guy who enjoys both a good conversations and solitude. Someone who can appreciate my dedication to music and is dedicated to something equally important. Someone who is slow-moving without being lazy, who has an idea of what he wants out of life but doesn't have an agenda, a book of strict goals, or a narrow view. I rarely follow the rules and love finding a new approach or solutions to something seemlingless impossible. I'm honest and trust-worthy and have the same expectation of anyone in my life. I can usually find something to laugh at, comment on, or question. I have a pretty tough exterior that fools far too many people. Capable and independant yet caring and nuturing: I am a bundle of contradictions and have stopped fighting it. I like my life, and wouldn't be here if I didn't think it could be that much better with the right person to share it with.
