What I’m doing with my life
Daytime = product management in digital things. The rest of the time I'm usually taking some kind of class, trying to swim or surf, working on various projects, reading about things I'd like to see or visit or eat or cook or dance to.
I’m really good at
doodling, naming things, singing, listing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I reflect light.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Music, humor, friendship, family, integrity, and some kind of
24-hour convenience store within a few blocks' walking distance.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
warmer weather/places, contractors' estimates, if millenials are actually as horrible as they seem, waves, real estate, career paths, wondering when I'll have time to work on personal projects.
On a typical Friday night I am
thanking Dog it's Friday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I will watch the shit out of some cat videos, especially if it involves cats and dolphins
. I think Russians are putting out some quality animal videos
these days (the new cold war?), though of course the Japanese
are one of the traditional superpowers in this arena.
You should message me if
you have a sense of humor (tending towards the absurdist/dark/sarcastic end of the spectrum), you like to eat (omnivorously but not without standards), a good relationship with your folks, empathy for others. You like to be active, you appreciate the creative arts, you like to dance, you have loves and hates and passions. Everything else we can figure out.
