My self-summary
First things first: I am married and poly. If that is a deal-breaker, move on.

***Update Jan 2016***
I now have a newborn baby around the house, so my free time is pretty limited. 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'm also interested in meeting other open marriage/poly parents, and exchanging tips on staying sane and fulfilled.
***********************

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
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
Photography, digital art, philosophy, being a cat whisperer, staying active, and traveling light.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: Django Unchained, Prometheus! (I know it's an objectively bad movie, but I want to go on magical misanthropic adventures across the galaxy with Michael Fassbender-bot), Sin Nombre, La Dolce Vita, 8 1/2, Flame & Citron

Music: Justin Townes Earl, Mariachi El Bronx, Justice, Asa, The XX, Aloe Blacc, Maria McKee, Dan Auerbach, Guy Clark... there's a long, varied list.

TV: Battlestar Galactica (I could watch it over and over, love the characters), Rome, Attack on Titan.

Food: Sushi, Thai, Mexican, Indian... to be honest, pretty much anything :) . I have been making an effort to eat less meat, though.

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
A computer, my camera, nature, friends, time to ponder, and something to read.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Privilege and intersectionality. How to fix the world's problems. What an weird and interesting place Seattle is at this moment in time.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home with baby right now. I've also been studying a lot and working on an open source a.i. project.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
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 ride.
You should message me if
-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.

-You'd like to try this on a date: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/11/fashion/no-37-big-wedding-or-small.html
