My self-summary
*Estoy en Medellin, Colombia hasta 19 de febrero, y luego vuelvo a Seattle.*

TL;DR: I'm a rad, caring, sincere, generally great guy in an open-relationship with a woman who is currently exploring another relationship. She's taking a break from ours to do so, and I'm exploring the concept of non-monogamy for myself for the first time, so I'm interested in dating some new people and making connections with others. I'm super respectful and cool - seriously, you can ask my partner or any of my friends. I'm called "such a catch" by someone new on a weekly basis. ;-)

If you want to snuggle and talk philosophy, geek on science while touching each others bodies, dissect culture and egos, or just toke up and wax poetic naked in the sun, send me a message and let's explore each other. And please do message; OKC doesn't show me if you only 'like' my profile. Feel free to be explicit about your interests and intentions; here are mine: I'm open to and interested in anything from finding singing/dancing/concert/science buddies to primal, get-each-other-off sex to a long-term-raise-kids partnership, to whatever we decide we want to do together.

Now that we know each other better, I'll tell you more. I'm a world-traveling, sound-designing, concert-going, nude-sun-bathing, sweet and rad guy with an active sense of wonder and a genuine heart. I love live music, festivals, and cons/expos of all kinds. I'm a musician, performer, dancer, and lover of life with a strong sense of compassion and love for myself and others.

I feel home when living near forests, mountains, and oceans. I'm interested in self-knowledge, divergent thinking, science, logic, philosophy, travel, history, psychology, and creating. I also enjoy living room dance parties, karaoke nights, Muppet movies, Mario Kart time trials, and Courtney Love-style nylon-tears interspersed with an abundance of wine and pizza.
What I’m doing with my life
After very thriftily living off savings in China, Thailand, India, and Japan for a couple years, I moved back to the PNW where I now compose and design audio for video games. My other musical endeavors include singing for EDM producers and progressive metal bands, composing chiptunes, and writing singer/songwriter stuff. Here are some of my tunes: https://soundcloud.com/joshuaduchene
I’m really good at
Swerving when I see mud puddles so I can splash water with the force of eighty-five horses.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hopefully, my fantastic mane of curly hair, well-kept beard, and infectious smile. But probably my weird Asian-looking pants, jika-tabi shoes, and the scent of sandalwood.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Progressive rock, EDM, jazz, folk, djent, video game music, and anything with emotive melodies. Some favorites are TesseracT, Rishloo, Zedd, Ella Fitzgerald, Nobuo Uematsu, Jim Croce, Mother Mother, Cloud Cult, A Perfect Circle, FTM, Koji Kondo, Tracy Chapman, America, Chet Baker, Symphony of Science...

I enjoy both tabletop and video games. Mostly stuff like Settlers, 7 Wonders, etc. And for video games, I'm most fond of NES, SNES, N64, and other old-school games, but I've been taken in by many modern indie games, such as Bastion, Portal, Stanley Parable, Papers Please, and things you'd find featured in the PAX 10.

Pizza, microbrews, wine, Thai iced tea, masala chai, horchata, Mexican, Japanese, Thai, American, Indian, German, and occasionally, Taco Bell food-substitute.

M.C. Escher is my all-time fave. I also enjoy pop-art, surrealism, and other modern art. Some favorites include Dali, Picasso, Van Gogh, Duchamp, Warhol, Haring, Mondrian, Pollock, Toulouse-Lautrec, & Rothko. Museum trips are an all-day activity for me.

Miyazaki, V for Vendetta, Eternal Sunshine..., Shawshank Redemption, What Dreams May Come, Scott Pilgrim... I also dig any Muppet movie or legendary 80s/90s film, especially Labyrinth, The Goonies, The Sandlot, The Neverending Story, & The Princess Bride. And Rad... that movie is seriously rad.

I mostly read non-fiction books and articles, specifically those about economics, philosophy, game audio, psychology, parenting, history, science, and self-knowledge. A few favorite authors include Carl Sagan, Richard Dawkins, Ray Bradbury, George Orwell, Thomas Woods, & H.G. Wells, and Winifred Phillips.

Rick and Morty for 100 years..., Steven Universe, Firefly, Game of Thrones, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Adventure Time, South Park, Pen & Teller: Bullshit, MythBusters, and anything about science, psychology, or economics.

School Sucks Podcast, Freakonomics, Radiolab, The Tim Ferris Show, and the Why Do You Care?! Podcast.
The six things I could never do without
Touch, Creativity, Nature, Music, Dancing, and Sunshine.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Music. Everything is music. Every sound is a song. And they're all in my head, all at once.
How to be more rational, logical, compassionate, and self-aware. And what the price might be for a plane ticket to anywhere in SE Asia.
Also, the finite nature of life and how someday I'll completely cease to exist. That's always a weird one, but I'm learning to turn that fear into appreciation for the great fortune I have to be living right now... and as a human being! With a body! Bodies are amazing!
On a typical Friday night I am
Preferably: Performing or seeing a show, dancing, singing karaoke, dumpster diving, or maybe enjoying pizza, beer/weed with some co-op gaming, audio spirals, and/or Muppets from Space.
What usually happens: Finishing a bottle of wine while recording and editing a bunch of sounds that will later be put in a video game.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was the kid in the 90s with the 'rat tail.'
You should message me if
You feel moved to do so, you want somebody to bring you a bottle of artisan wine and a body for snuggling, you want to discuss gene theory or economics while playing Mario Kart naked, you want some no-nonsense physical play after losing to me at Mario Kart, or you just want to be completely yourself with somebody who's cool with that.

Most importantly, message me if you're rad, honest, rational, and you have stories to tell and ideas to share. I want to know you if you're on a continual path of growth and you give both yourself and others love and compassion. Or if you enjoy being totally goofy/nerdy, or you like going to festivals, concerts, and cons. Or if you're a dumpster diver, you have colorful hair, you're a cosplayer, or you're a self-proclaimed nerd. Or if you don't care for the gender binary, or you already have a primary partner/spouse/kid(s) (kids are the shit). Also, I tend to prefer cute over hot. Being both is wicked awesome.

Do it, tell me something interesting about yourself. I once hiked 50 miles in a single day. Your turn - Show me what you got!
