Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First things first: I am married and poly. If that is a
deal-breaker, move on.
***Update March 2015***
Due to life getting in the way, all I can be mentally present for
right now outside of prior obligations is fwb and hook-ups. There's
a season for work and a season for relaxing, and all that. Even the
season for work needs the occasional play break though, so if
you're looking for the same let's talk.
I moved to Seattle from the east coast a few years ago. I
absolutely love the quirky, intellectual vibe that this town emits.
People aren't afraid to care about things, and act silly! That
said, there's much more of the world that I'd like to see, and
would eventually like a partner and companion to explore with me.
An early lesson I learned after moving out here is that avalanches
are a legitimate concern when hiking through Cascades as opposed to
mountains out east. They are awe-inspiring, but I never want to see
one up close again!
My passions include activism, traveling, hiking, and appreciating
how freaking amazing the world is. If you're looking for anything
more than short-term dating, you should be socially/politically
active. I get frustrated with people who aren't willing to fight in
their own way to create a better tomorrow.
I straddle the line between INFP and ENFP. I love socializing, but
definitely need recharge time afterwards.
One interesting thing about me is that if a person is important, I
associate a color with them. This has turned into a fun game for
many a friend.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Learning to appreciate how beautiful the world is, and leaving it a
bit better than before I was here. I've been really into machine
learning lately as well.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Photography, digital art, philosophy, being a cat whisperer,
staying active, and traveling light.

Books: The Dispossessed - Ursula Le Guin. Homage to Catalonia -
George Orwell. Debt: the First 5000 Years and Towards and
Anthropological Theory of Value - David Graeber. I had a Twitter
conversation with him in which we riffed on Walt Disney's life as
an allegory for the inherent contradiction of utopian futurism in a
capitalist economic system. If you understand why this made my
week, we will get along quite well. Violence - Slavoj Zizek.
Fateful Triangle - Noam Chomsky. Ray Kurzweil - How to Create a
Mind. I'm just getting started on Marx's Grundrisse.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A computer, my camera, nature, friends, time to ponder, and
something to read.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Privilege and intersectionality. How to fix the world's problems.
What an weird and interesting place Seattle is at this moment in
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I really like variety, so it's hard to say. Best bet is hanging out
at a bar with friends. Lately I've been studying a lot and working
on an open source a.i. project.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I did the Fremont Solstice Parade bike ride on foot one year, after
a series of unfortunate events left me bike-less the morning of the

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
-You're empathetic, a good cuddler, and enjoy deep conversation as
much as flirting.
-I tend to fall for smart, creative, free-thinking types. If you
are the aforementioned and curvy (thick, toned thighs and a nice
butt drive me wild), I will likely be very into you.
