I grew up in Pacific North West on a wee island with no electricity. My skill sets are very diverse. I know many irrelevant facts and love to teach things to interested people. I can get caught up in a story and before I know it I've taken on different accents and mannerisms.
I have a passion for cars and I love weekend drives. Anytime I have to take a trip I always look for the twistiest route. If you enjoy spontaneous road trips, I'm the "guy" for you.
I am deep thought nerd who enjoys all things science, buddhist, art, car, computer, knowledge. I am an ethics major. I'm in that place many transfer students find themselves: algebra and stats left to the end.
I listen to NPR, read slashdot, Fark, The Oatmeal, and Savage Love. I'm fond of the Oxford Comma, and The Onion.
What I’m doing with my life
Working for The Man's in-laws (UC). I enjoy my job. Special projects and analysis for reducing discrimination.
Back to school. Trying to balance homework and compulsive Netflixing.
I’m really good at
Listening, driving, fixing anything, computers, logic, bioethics, science, synthesis of enormous quantities of random facts, cribbage, massage, cooking, letter writing.
I love connecting with people. Sharing time, ideas, stories, and anything else that comes with human interaction.
The first things people usually notice about me
Ruddy face and bushy hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read mostly nonfiction. Lately quite a bit about social justice and harm reduction in addiction.
Currently reading: High Price by Carl Hart.
Books/authors: Chasing the Scream, In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts, Shulgin, Pratchett, Hitchens, Plait, Roach, Heinlein, Lovecraft, Dawkings (sparingly). The Onion. Anything related to Intersex Activism. 5 Very Good Reasons to Punch a Dolphin in the Mouth, Lovelock, Shapin.
Movies: Cloud Atlas, Warm Bodies, Life of Pi, Fight Club, Lord of War, Memento, and many others. I'm fond of gritty dramas. Anything Coen. Serenity.
Shows: Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Stargate, The Wire, Firefly, IT Crowd, Dr. Who, Torchwood, Walking Dead.
I enjoy most kinds of music except christian rock and soprano sax smooth jazz. Kenny G makes me want to kill bunnies and I'm quite fond of bunnies.
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Medical ethics, how to approach people on OKC, cars, computers,
sex, buying a house, intersex activism, social justice, sex,
driving twisty roads, planning drives that take the windiest roads,
On a typical Friday night I am
Resting from intense weeks. Perhaps bonding with others over a rowdy game. Not being bibulous.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am intersex, not biologically male or female. Not at all private about it. In fact please ask me anything. Don't let this scare you away. Just something most have never heard of.
You should message me if
If you like to talk, dream, explore, and can write a decent sentence.
