Sometimes I bite off more than I can chew! I am passionate, creative, energetic, determined, warm, funny, creative. I am also insecure at times, not always punctual, but working on it! I'm a professional landscaper, owner of Grand Design Landscaping and an aspiring filmmaker and accomplished composer/songwriter.
I have a large network of friends and aquaintances, who I see mostly when I go out to parties, and a growing list of friends in the spheres of filmmaking and composing. In the past, I was a real party animal; I have been known to start at 5 or 6pm on a Thursday night, go to a whole string of events through the weekend, and not stop until sometime at 6am on Monday morning. That was fun, but now the party's over: I have to stay at home and learn to work with all this amazing software and computer equipment and plan on my first film...learning about different kinds of formats and cameras and editing my work.
I am very supportive of my friends and many of them are very talented. I'd particularly like to meet you if you make films or compose music professionally. I enjoy hosting home cooked meals for my friends, and have a nice collection of films and a big screen TV. I also have musical equipment, but I'm not much of a jammer - more a composer, with a classical bent, and want to score for films and write operas.
I would love to go to beaches and hike more around SF, so please take me with you, when you go, lol! I don't get out enough on my own...
I am an avid swing and tap dancer, am very familiar with the music of that period, too, and enjoy dressing up in period outfits. I go to the Alley, a piano bar in Oakland.
I go to Burning Man every year (except for last year, when I spent the summer in NYC);
Let me know who you are and how I can contribute to your life!

The only thing that is missing are a few key letters and numbers on my keyboard....Mon, September 10, 2007 - 2:22 AM permalink - 0 comments
So, I have to be creative about how I choose my words. Burning Man was a blast! I sent my time in the Red Nose District again this year! I saw the Man burn twice, the first time with the moon in full glowing red mode!
Made a lot of new friends and more than my fair share of sexual encounters.
I've washed out my clothes, done the filing, worked my way out from being broke, lol. Feels good...
So, h... read more
Last night I spent the evening with old friends and new at Kinky Salon; they had a bit of a "fun" raiser to pick up some cash before heading out to build the Minigolf course. BTW, we'll be located right out in front of the Red Nose district at 7pm and Esplanade! Peepshow Minigolf, git yer hole on!Sun, August 20, 2006 - 12:27 PM permalink - 0 comments
The most fun I've been having lately is playing with my tools in my shop with all the cool new aquaintances I've been making on craigslist, enlisting folks who want to come over and help me bui... read more
So much has been happening! took over my new garage space last night and it was wonderful: so much space, and great workshelves and cabinets, too. It was a great pleasure, believe me, to take my tools and my bike down there, and finally be able to walk behind my Tiki Bar, lol!Thu, August 10, 2006 - 11:19 PM permalink - 0 comments
Nothing thrills the boy in me than to be able to organize my tools and parts, lol.
And we used the space to cut out the last of the forms for my minigolf hole, Vixen Vortex's Hypno-Hole. The eight foot S/M bunn... read more
A tribe buddy came over last night and I cooked him a wonderful salmon dinner and he tried valiently to install Tiger on my hard drive, but I suspect I have a bad drive: the install didn't take and was aborted three times, and on the third attempt, the computer crashed with a kernel panic!Thu, August 3, 2006 - 9:40 AM permalink - 1 comment
We couldn't even get the monitor to work...although I knew that the computer was rebooting fine.
There's something like two other OS's currently installed and I think we need to uninstall them first, is... read more

here I am at the tribe site again, after many months of absence. I got disgusted with the contacts I'd made here and decided that there was just too much shallowness in the world and not enough time for me to waste it!
then, i got pulled back in for a spell. I looked at all the invitations I'd ignored and the mail that I never opened, and made a few tentative replies. I think this time I can make this space work better for me: for one thing, I've gr... read more
