My self-summary
I make things, I ride my bicycle, I believe in being ready to change my life to follow my ideals.
What I’m doing with my life
Working on a new project - check it out here:
http://igg.me/at/casualquest

Over the last several years I've worked as a freelance web developer, working mostly with Mozilla. In 2011, a friend and I started a tech startup which, in 2013, was selected by Mozilla to be part of their WebFWD program (though it has since been dissolved). I am currently using my experience as a web developer and hobby game designer to do something I believe is needed: create healthy online play environments.
I’m really good at
Missing non-verbal cues. Being clumsy and goofy. Making the people around me feel awesome and appreciated. Listening. Filling small-talk with awkward silences. The scribble game.
The first things people usually notice about me
My beard. I don't understand the beard attention, but I'm used to it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
We can be more than just consumers. I want to be a part of communities of mutual support and collaborative creation.

Polyphony.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking of new ways to use my industry - my economic interactions and impact - to support the kind of systems I believe in, to create the world I wish to live in, and to support my community.
On a typical Friday night I am
Creating something.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I skip your favorite movies/food/etc. and only check the photos if the profile catches my eye. I can't tell much about you from how good your photographer is and what brands you like. :/
I'm looking for what you create, what communities you're a part of, and who you support.

...And if you sing. Singing > most everything else.
You should message me if
If you want to talk with me. Makes sense, right?
