Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Quirky yet organized. Serious yet silly. Driven yet flexible.
I seek to improve myself and the lives of those around me through
public speaking, leadership training, and small group facilitation.
In my off time I enjoy cooking, exploring, and, from time to time,
playing video games.
I am in a long-term and (temporarily) long-distance polyamorous
relationship. My heart has room for many lovers.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Developing myself and, soon, others. The goal is to not just
survive, but thrive in our increasingly more chaotic and fast-paced
world. My favorite topics are antifragility and critical thinking.
My favorite audiences are high-school and college aged students, as
well as early-career young-adults.
Personally, I'm working on a more healthy lifestyle. I find
learning about human and environmental health fascinating. I've
almost entirely phased red meat out of my diet. Next step? Reducing
the amount of processed foods.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

pretty good at breaking social tension (or maybe creating it? such

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Nerd culture. Broad-spectrum civil rights and associated activism.
Friends & Family. Places to explore. A good bass line. Food and
the adventure therein.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Existence, human perception and cognition, and self-improvement.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
probably cuddled up watching (or more likely re-watching) something
