Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a mad engineer with a passion for storytelling and debate. I've
built death carts, taught pole dancing, and currently spend at
least one day a week exploring rarely seen bits of the bay
My creative projects have included choreographing a massive sword
and staff fire dance inspired by the Maori Haka with influences
from around Indonesia and East Asia (see here:
) and building a human
sized hamster wheel powered carriage (needs a little work but is
functional, see here:
I'm polyamorous with two wonderful local partners and two more
remote ones. I'm certainly available, but not single. If you want
to talk about polyamory or are just curious about it in general I'm
happy to chat about it, but please be aware that I have absolutely
no interest in closed or monogamous relationships of any kind, and
this will never change.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently working as a QA Automation Engineer and spending my
spare time finding wacky hijinks to get into. Those adventures
often include things like iron chef style cooking competitions, sea
shanty sing-alongs, and planning secret adventures for
Lately I've been doing yoga, dancing, running, and martial arts
every week, and going camping on weekends where that's possible.
There's so many awesome things to do in this area! Plus, I got a
CSA meat delivery started, so I've been learning to cook steak
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Schematics, making things go, breaking things (and rebuilding
them), and puns.
Cooking fairly simple food but making it just that little bit
fancier, or just needlessly complicated. Making hot chocolate and
being a good person to talk to.
I also used to work as a camp counselor, teaching kids sock puppet
musical theater and stilt walking. I'm still half decent at dancing
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I often get random "Looking classy!" or "Good morning, Rabbi" from
strangers. Evidently I have a distinctive way of dressing. Also, my
hair's pretty long, so that comes up.
*Note: I am not actually a Rabbi. Evidently sometimes I look like

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I never like questions like this. I'm too much of an engineer at
heart to answer anything other than things I truly can't do
without: Stimulus, Oxygen, Food, Water, Heat, and Shelter.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
, Probability Analysis (yes, I can be geeky enough to do
that when bored), Relationships, Daydream Stories, Fire
Choreography, Structure Design, Art Constructions, Being a
Superhero (hey, don't knock my dreams), Strange and Wonderful
Contraptions. I've built up a long term zombie defense plan in my
spare time, and really like planning out buildings and temporary
structures. Lately I've been devising automation tools.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Lately, gaming and feasting with friends, as we now do a regular
pot luck gaming session that day. Other regular social activities
for me are going out dancing on Mondays and practicing yoga and
martial arts on Tuesdays or Thursdays depending on schedule. Sunday
is a pot luck Game of Thrones feast with a different (but
overlapping) group of friends. Even when I'm just home for the
night I tend to like to cook.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have an interesting story or joke you'd like to share.
You're looking for a hiking or rock climbing partner.
You want to talk or play tabletop, board, or computer games.
You feel like it?
Do not message me if: Your goal with me is a monogamous romantic
relationship. I am very happily polyamorous and will be more than
happy to explain how that works for me if you like. I'm not going
to help anybody cheat, nor am I a fan of secrecy when it comes to
my love life, so please take that into consideration.
