Introductions are always hard, but I'll do my best to make this not too unpleasant. I'm a jack-of-all-trades, and master of none. I'm a tinkerer, a hacker, a thinker, and a fidgeter. I'm a lover, a rationalist, an activist, and a pacifist. I have a sharp mind, but a short attention span.
In other words, your average mainstreamed geek.
I'm a pretty silly guy. I laugh often, and have a deep appreciation for the absurd. I like witty jokes, dumb jokes, and painful puns.
Some of my favorite social interests are theme parks (I have passes to the Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, Sea World, Aquatica, and Busch Gardens), museums, dive bars, live music, and outdoor activities.
I identify as polyamorous. I've have been ethically non-monogamous since 2007. I currently have one partner, BunkiBoo (whom I've been married to since 2004). The other major person I'm my life is my son, who was born in 2010.
If you are unfamiliar with polyamory, it means that I foster multiple relationships in an open and ethical manner. My partners and I are able to date, fall in love with, and have sex with other people. Please note that this is not cheating, as we all make each other fully aware of our other partners, and even introduce them, and all do things together as our schedules permit. We believe that love and affection are not limited resources that must be hoarded to be preserved, but instead are wonderful gifts that can be given in abundance.

This isn't to say that I am completely idealistic, for while love is an unlimited resource, time and money are not. Since I have a child and maintain two relationships, I need to make sure that we stick to schedules, and negotiate activities. Poly-relationships are a lot of work, but it's totally worth it.
I run the Gainesville Constellation community, which is for people no matter where you are on the ethically non-monogamous spectrum. I also am involved with Gainesville Trinity community, so if you are as well, I'll likely see you around.
