I started life misspending my youth, progressed to questionably
allocated college time, followed up by a poorly spent adulthood,
which I intend to continue to misuse at every opportunity for many
years to come. There will probably also be cake.
Growing up I spent my time reading, playing video games, poking
around MUDs, various kinky pursuits, and a little bit of theater.
In college I got involved with anime/cosplay(and crossplay),
tabletop gaming, more reading, worked in a physics lab , cutting my
teeth with game development, trying out poly, exploring the edges
of the BDSM world, being a bit of linguistics groupie, and somehow
managed to walk away with a degree in engineering. I originally
wanted to be a mad scientist but did not really have the right hair
After school I spent a number of years in the video game industry
but now work on serious games in a research lab. I am constantly
amazed that they actually pay me to do this.
Today I generally spend my free time time reading, watching anime,
DIY home improvement (taking another stab at gardening this year)
and playing video games (mmm.. Minecraft). Though I will admit
lately I have been consumed by other projects and have not had much
game time. Sadness.
I enjoy photography and experiment with multispectral imaging of
plants and landscapes. While I occasionally ponder working more on
portrait photography, so far I have focused on things that depend
primarily on inanimate objects. They are patient, don't get bored,
don't get cold, don't get cramps, and do not give me strange looks
when I suggest taking pictures without the lights on or bathing
them in ultraviolet light. They are however a lot harder to fit
I also moderate the OkCupid Discussion
group on Fetlife.
