Handsome, artsy, kind, irreverent are just some of the words that could be used to describe me. Friends say another estimable quality of mine is that I am courageous. There is nothing I won't try and I always jump in with both feet. I am a performer, a poet, and a writer by trade. My work has been favorably reviewed in TimeOut Chicago & elsewhere, as I continue to explore artistic expression in its many forms. Throat-singing, tap dancing and the trumpet are some of my latest efforts. I have been called a raconteur---I always have a new story to tell my friends. I am also a romantic, walks on the beach, flowers, coffee house chats, and long nights of conversation and laughter are just some of the things that I enjoy. Music is a big part of my life. I love all kinds of music and I would like to meet a woman who loves eclectic kinds of music as much as I do. The woman I am seeking is not a particular age but I am young and my outlook belongs to someone half my age. I can appreciate an older woman as well as someone much younger as long as they can appreciate someone like me, with a youthful outlook. I am open to women of all backgrounds. As an artist, I work to live but don't live to work. I have a strong work ethic but am not career driven because of the role artistic expression has played in my life. I have dated women of all ages and have had many rewarding experiences. Now I am ready to meet the love of my life, someone who, like me is non-judgmental and is ready to open themselves up to the possibility of love.
