Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a boy who likes words and nerds, though I've been told I really
mean dorks. But mainly, I like sweet queer
people who have good politics.
Fuck these things:
* you if you can't take a joke
* I hate binary gender but love binary code.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I make things. 3D printers, modified seltzer makers, etc.
For money, I'm part of a radical technology cooperative. Getting it
off the ground ate my last four years. I'm looking to be
interesting again, and looking for people to do that with.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Things that have no productive social value. I'm more interested in
taking things apart than in contributing to the GDP.
That said, I have a number of theoretically useful skills. I'm
experienced with providing first aid for rubber bullet wounds. I
can pick locks. I have two mostly-finished inventions that multiple
beta testers have told me I should patent, but they are both a)

requirement for a looong time. I recently read and love "The Night
Movies include "The House of Yes", mainly for Genevieve Bujold.
"Dial M for Murder" in 3-D was also special, and I'm partial to a
good heist flick. My two favorite films are definitely "Hedwig and
the Angry Inch" and "Harold and Maude" though.
According to iTunes, my favorite music includes the Magnetic
Fields, Liz Phair, Against Me!, and Dead Prez. Generally you'll
find me listening to Irish punk podcasts. Or Spotify's top 100, I'm
I don't watch TV, but not because I'm a snob. So if I AM watching
TV, I'm catching up on what everyone else was raving about 10 years
ago, like "The Wire" or "The Sopranos".
N.B. - If compatibility in media tastes is important to you, I'm
probably not the person for you. My brain doesn't work like
Peanut sauce, fresh-baked bread, and homemade coconut milk ice
cream. Though my favorite food category is undoubtedly
Reading this, the impression I have of me is "different like all
the different people". Perhaps accurate, but I'm very happy with
who I am.

Like the BedFridge. Or my backdating mail service for late college
applications or rent checks. Vitamin-fortified alcohol and
cigarettes. The unifying element to my inventions is that they are
born of my personal malingering.
