My self-summary
Idealistic but cynical, enthusiastic but chill, and unable to resist a pun.

I love the spaces where seemingly contradictory things overlap: Childlike whimsy and old-man cantankerousness; high-concept lowbrow food; being simultaneously rugged and foppish; using humor to explain and process extremely serious things; mixing the sacred and profane.

The struggle towards social, racial, and economic justice is a big part of my life, so feminist and radical politics are things I do a lot.

I recently saw this video which compares sexuality to musical jamming ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgd3m-x46JU ) , in that it's a collaboration rather than a commodity, and the point is to enjoy the process. I think this generalizes relationships in general; I'm not psyched about gender roles or the assumptions of certain things that guys should do and certain things that girls should do in dates/relationships. Let's instead say fuck that old bullshit, we should figure out our expectations of each other together.
What I’m doing with my life
Playing lots of music. Consultant to healthcare providers to prevent them from drowning in paperwork. Sometimes running a catering business. Other random stuff. My business card just says "useful".

Also figuring out how to contribute towards the kind of change I want to see to my community/world for a living. It's a tough one.
I’m really good at
Geeking out about pretty much anything, cooking, playing the trumpet, listening, bad puns, cuddling, explaining to bro-dudes why things are racist/sexist/otherwise shitty in ways they can understand and internalize, grammar, laughing, bursting into song at the slightest provocation.
The first things people usually notice about me
Recently, several people have said they thought I looked like a Republican when they first met me. I'm not a Republican. I'm about as far to the Left as anybody you know. It's just that punk rock–type clothes don't look good on me.

Food: All the noodles, all the curry, spinach, avocados, lasagna, Mexican food carts in Queens, french onion soup, garlic, Carolina barbecue, mangoes, pork, the entire brassica genus

Street food and comfort food of any culture I can think of. Dishes that have stories associated with them. Culinary puns.

I've worked as a cook or chef at places ranging from from a vegan hippie commune to a barbecue smokehouse, and love sharing and learning culinary techniques/history/theory/legends. I'm also kind of a pizza geek.

The six things I could never do without
Other people, uncertainty, books, garlic, some kind of musical instrument.

OK, that's five; I'm low-maintenance.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The etymological origins of words and clichés.

How can I be romantic without relying on the fucked-up machinery of consumerism and patriarchy?

If Catholics have communion wafers that transubstantiate into the body of Christ when they're eaten, is it still Jesus when they crap it out?

How everything functions within the global cultural-economic system and how it's probably contributing to destroying the planet. (Also whether I need to adjust my tinfoil hat)

Is it possible to be hetero and queer? Would it be disingenuous to identify as such?

Am I still a punk? Or a hippie? Or some kind of strange mutant hybrid?

If I was somehow transported back in time, what miracles of modern science could I produce in order to prevent myself from immediately being jailed or killed for looking funny?

Tacos. Mmmmm... tacos.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
LEGOs say they're for ages 6-12. I totally played with them until I was 14 and a half.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 23–33
  • Near me
  • For long-term dating, short-term dating, casual sex
You should message me if
You've succeeded in rejecting the ridiculous notion that it's the man's obligation to send the first message, because fuck the police.

If you want somebody to sing with.

Also if you want to hang out, drink interesting beer, watch movies with space ships, play guitar, or board games.

If you want good conversation. If you want to explore somewhere in New York City. If you want to cook some really, really good food. If you think humanity is worth fighting for.
