I always have several projects going, but having fun with a romantic partner is top notch for any day. I enjoy live music, playing instruments, singing, cooking, theatre, dancing, walking in the woods, games, canoeing, international travel, road trips, conversation, and cuddling in bed. I love giving massage, and I'm good at planning sweet surprises for my lover, from little gifts to big travel plans.
My teaching job brings me much joy, and I know I'm valued at work. I throw my heart and creativity into my job, but when I come home I leave work behind and enjoy the rest of life. I have a great group of friends, both an intimate circle I see every week and a broader circle of fun-loving musicians and artists that feel like family.
I love kids and am often told I'm admired as the dad of my 7-year old daughter. Her mom and I work together amicably and split the week gracefully. I would enjoy more kids in my home and in my life.
Doing good things in the world is important to me. I taught on the south side of Chicago and worked in Ghana and Guatemala and think of those times as me at my best. I built a strawbale, solar-heated house in the country, but rent it out because I prefer to live in town. I keep bees, and I garden.
I value openness and honesty from the start.
