often confused, wonderfully smart longhair with a penchant for
strangely configured beards and moustaches.
I like cycling, playing computer games, reading fiction, learning
how to negotiate my way through working and social life, being
surprised and causing surprise in others.
I like to help people where I can and often base what I do on how
best to achieve that.
I prefer to meet in person than chat on OKC for extended periods of

frustrated. That said when I do fix something my joy is unbounded.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cycling, geekery, doing what I shouldn't, getting shit done, comma

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I would like to hear from you if you are a strong, intelligent, fun
