My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Computer science-er, science fiction lover, consumer of delicious music, intersectional feminist, barista wannabe, graceful and weird!

Some people find it useful to know that I'm an INTP and sex-positive/poly-friendly, although at this moment I'm more in it for finding emotional connection and people I can nerd out with while occasionally cuddling.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently a senior team lead at a software startup. I get to work with a bunch of scrappy talented coworkers and produce beautiful works of craftsmanship from my fingertips! I also shield them from sales/marketing and their schemes; not a fun job, but somebody's got to do it.

Other than I spend my days enjoying my friends, going to concerts for music that I love, going to meetups, working on side-projects, and playing with my cats <3

I tend to befriend people active in (feminism, intersectionality, harm reduction, economic justice, veganism, etc...) which inspires me to improve my own impact on the world even though I'm generally conflict-averse and driven by practicality/consensus. I'm still figuring out how to not feel bad for avoiding protests and online screaming matches while feeling good for feeling compelled to throw down on the side of good when necessary.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
being a repository of random trivia.
tweeting weird things (http://www.twitter.com/MentatMode)
being a resource of cool and uncool music (http://last.fm/user/gdcosta)
making espresso, roasting coffee beans pouring slightly misshapen latté art!)
mapping out a list of recommended coffee shops in Toronto
Not being perturbed/upset by anything unless there is a practical reason for being so.

Games:
I've been playing video games since the earliest days of the home computer, so I'll just say that I like anything with a good story and interesting mechanics. If I had to pick a modern genre, I suppose I'd say I tend to favour Role Playing Games.

There is an awesome community of independent artists who use the medium of video games to explore issues of diversity, queerness, and all sorts of artistic expression! I love that people have taken games and turned it into an accessible way for people who otherwise wouldn't be into programming to get into programming as an art form!

I'm starting to get into board games, again I prefer interesting mechanics though I'll play anything with people I enjoy being around.

what music best suits my current mood
programs I can write in beloved (and sometimes useless) languages like Common Lisp and Ruby <3
how to trick my cats into just that much more cuddling
how hostile the startup tech scene can be to non-bros, and how I can find a way to do what I love while truly making the world a better place!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
In my house, reading and/or coding. There is almost always music. There are always cats.

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're passionate (some would even say nerdy) about something.

You enjoy activities with other people, and also just hanging out working together sometimes.

You deal with conflict by thinking and talking it out; you can express your emotions clearly.

You also want to make the world a better place, but can deal with a dude who isn't particularly radical about it :)
