Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a writer and computer programmer. I'm originally from Hawaii
. My favorite writers
include Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Phillip K. Dick and Isaac Asimov
I'm married. We're poly. I feel I don't have to explain this what
with it being the 21st century and all.
To be extremely clear, I'm not looking for a unicorn. But if you
have not yet seen "Space Unicorn" on Youtube, you should drop
everything right now and go watch it.
I love Pike
, especially in the early morning before the crowds
appear. The market has the best Bavarian meat shop and it has the
only crumpet bakery in Washington that I know of. If you want to
make a date to eat crumpets, drink tea and then stop for
Weisswurst, let me know.
I play Pathfinder. I like table-top RPGs. I used to work for the
company that makes Dungeons & Dragons.
I like the zoo
. I like
great apes. As a kid one of my heroes was the Gombé chimp named
Michael because he was the smartest chimp in the rainforest.
Seriously--he took over the whole chimp tribe just by banging a
couple of metal water jugs together. He was a chimp evil genius. I
totally wanted to grow up to be like him, except with less fur. I
feel that I have come near to succeeding. Especially with regards
to having less fur. Which is good because that would, you know, be
scratchy and uncomfortable otherwise.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm writing. I'm working. I'm going to the zoo, the Pacific Science
Center, and the SAM. I'm loving local burlesque, especially the
and Ella Titsgerald
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
absorbing useless trivia and disturbing facts.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes. Or sometimes my Very Serious Look. (Really. Sometimes it's
like I'm walking around under a stencil that says "I Are Serious
Person. This Is Serious Post.") I smile sometimes. I smile often,
in fact. I promise. Just not in front of cameras. This is because I
hate cameras. There is only one photographer on earth who has been
able to get me to smile for a camera consistently and she is now
our family photographer forever.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My wife, rice, books, my computer, nitrogen, carbon
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time thinking about the future. I think about
computers, theology, philosophy and politics. I also think about
snow. I grew up in the tropics. Snow is mysterious and somewhat
I spend a lot of time thinking about the fall of civilization. It's
a bit of a hobby. I rather enjoy end-of-the-world myths.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching a movie, working late, reading a book, out at a
I love burlesque and cabaret. Sometimes on Friday, I'm out at the
Can Can Cabaret. Sometimes I'm at another of the many, many shows
going on around town.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once had a crush on the heroine from the Gummy Bears animated TV
show. I saw no reason why her two-dimensional nature should get in
the way of our love.
