I am participating in the AIDS LifeCycle 10 - From June 5-11, 2011, I'm bicycling in a 7-day, 545-mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles to make a world of difference in the lives of people living with HIV and AIDS.

My have reached my fundraising goal of $10,000 - If you'd like support my effort click here

As of March 24th I've reached my goal - I raised  $10,025. I've been out training riding for a total of over 550 miles already - and I have two and half months to go.

As much as I work out at the gym - my strongest and biggest muscle is my heart. I wear it on my sleeve a fair amount. I also - am a nice guy - and you can always use a new friend! So don't be shy!

You'll notice from my profile photos that I have a boyfriend... his name is Dave and I wanted him to be front and center in my profile.  We live together in beautiful Palo Alto, CA. near Stanford University. He is simply the most wonderful guy! I am very, very happy! He's smart, adventurous, supportive and (as you can see) simply adorable. He is shy, and doesn't have an online profile - and I tend to be the "Julie the cruise director" side of our relationship so I simply included him here on mine.

We prefer to hang out with mature guys that know what a set of weights can do for their body - and what an education and open-minded world view can do for their personality. Multisyllabic conversation is just as important as knowing where to put a hard cock.

I work very hard at my job at nearby Stanford University as the web marketing director for Residential and Dining Enterprises. We run catering, conferences, hospitality, dining, and undergraduate/graduate housing. It's a gigantic job - and I love it a lot. So when I get home at night I'm looking for a good meal and some down time. It is always nice to share that with someone with a bright mind and a wide world view. 

  • I am writer/novelist - my first novel, "HOUSE OF WOLVES", was released from iUniverse Press in 2007. In it, a man is introduced to a communal, gay, all-male household where he learns the importance of honor, companionship, spirituality, erotic desire and brotherhood.  Visit my website at for more info! 


  • Part of my weight loss (42 pounds with Weight Watchers - and I'm still at goal weight) was learning to eat right.and out of that came my cooking show, "BOB'S KITCHEN" - and you can see all 32 episodes at


  • I am in my 2nd year of  piano lessons - I've been having a ball. Here is a video of me playing/singing "Rainbow Connection"

My dog - Miss Kate - and I love walking in the baylands preserve and all around the bay area. Care to grab a latte and join us sometime? Good conversation on a breezy Sunday morning at the beach can sometimes be the best gift of all.

If my photos and profile make you want to know more? Just ask! I'm a friendly, approachable guy.
