Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm basically a fire-spinning gothboy gamer-geek art fag.
I am pleased to be part of the resurrection of vaudeville. I'm a
member of the Boston Circus Guild. Generally my acts are based on
doing stuff with fire, but I want to start incorporating more
sideshow, like glass walking and beds of nails. I have interesting
I quit smoking seven years ago. Maybe the most disappointing thing
about being an ex smoker is that I don't look quite so much like
My favorite thing on NPR is This American Life.
As a child I wanted to be a vampire when I grew up. Obviously, that
hasn't worked out so well.
I love nature and the natural sciences in the Victorian way,
meaning that I love things in bell jars and I'm fascinated with
zoology and biology and the like. I'm not so keen on tromping about
and getting the nature all over me.
I love long, hot showers.
As I'm quite fond of Victoriana, I like Steampunk too.
My venus flytrap is named Hibbert. He is a constant disappointment
to me (compared to other venus flytraps). However, none of my other
plants, carnivorous or otherwise, have names.
I'm completely uninterested in sports. I don't hate them, but the
periodic aggravation caused me by hordes of drunken sports fans has
left me with a pretty strong negative association. I do have a
couple friends who enjoy all things sporting. I think they're
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I went to art school for painting and have a background in theater,
but decided I don't like how money and art mix. When you need to
sell the painting you're working on in order to pay the rent or
eat, I think you make poor decisions. I decided to end my foray
into freelance illustration when I realized that I didn't really
care what the client wanted and was going to paint what I wanted
regardless. I still needed to make a living, so I went back to
Currently I'm a dental lab tech (I sculpt dental crowns and
bridges). It's difficult work with a high learning curve, but I'm
hoping to get to the point with it where I can support my basic
needs with a minimum number of hours of work, freeing me to focus
more on my art and other interests.
For the past few years I've been very involved in fire spinning and
object manipulation. I make a little money performing gigs and
teaching. I also sell the occasional painting, though between teeth
and spinning I don't have much time to paint these days.
I just went to Burning Man for the first time. It was an amazing,
powerful experience, and I have every intention of going back,
though I don't think I'll be able to make that happen in
I just got a sewing machine, which is pretty exciting. Initially I
just plan to use it to sew the crotches and asses back together on
a lot of my old pants (doing it by hand takes forever), but
eventually, when I've become more comfortable with it and have
learned more, I'd like to try building my own costume pieces and
club wear. With, you know, all my extraneous time.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I grow carnivorous plants. I'm a decent painter, particularly with
oils. I like hobby games involving polyhedral dice or toy soldiers
I can paint. I ride a bicycle in Boston and have managed to escape
serious injury thus far. I spin poi, rope dart, and hoop; I juggle,
contact juggle, and can eat and breathe fire. I can escape from
straitjackets, hammer nails into my nose, and walk barefoot on

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Coffee. Music. Poi. Sketch book. Tight pants. Cats.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Ideas for art and performances. Whatever new spinning or object
manipulation thing I'm trying to learn. Sex.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're interested in meeting me. The paradigm here seems to be that
men bombard women with messages, and women then pick and choose
which ones to respond to, which I think is pretty tiresome. Also,
gender roles annoy me.
