Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Haha! Here we all are on OK Cupid, looking for something.
......Ok then, let's do this.
Bay Area native. I bounce between Nevada City and Oakland.
I've decided to not list what Myers-Briggs type I am here.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Left my corporate design job to work on getting my creative
projects off the ground. It's exciting, and also kinda scary.
Planning out a graphic novel and animated series. Making music.
Making art. Freelancing. Trying new things, actively.
Recently I've been working at a lot of festivals: building,
carpentry, rigging, construction, as well as character acting with
some of the performance groups I roll with.
I also volunteer some of my time to work on tall ships, taking
disadvantaged youth groups out sailing and teaching them nautical
history and such. Climbing up the rigging is the best!
I've traveled completely around the world twice in the last five
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Swearing like a sailor. But I get a free pass on that one because I
am a sailor. I can sing you a sea shanty or two as well, and I keep
my language clean when I need to.
Getting better at: Being generous, being modest, being a feminist,
making art, making music, design, illustration, animation, Rock
The first things people usually notice about me

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.

• Food: Everything. I eat meat, but I can cook veggie too. I'm down
for learning new vegetarian recipes, or any recipes, if you got
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
• Learning about writing plots and character development.
• Making art.
• Social justice, gentrification, feminism, where I fit in with all
of that, and how I can make an positive impact on my immediate
• Planning long backpacking trips in the Sierras.
• Vintage guitars and effects pedals, writing sick riffs.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My screen name is a reference to Star Wars, but I got it wrong and
now I can't change it. Kessel Run in under 12 parsecs, not Kettle
Run! (This is embarrassing on two levels: That I am making a nerdy
Star Wars reference, and that I didn't even get it right).
I think I'm getting burnt out on Okc. It takes so much effort just
to get ladies to respond to a message, and then to agree to meet,
and then it's rare they actually follow through and show up, and
then it's even more rare that there's chemistry once we do. I guess
I'm just hoping for that special magical chemistry alchemy thing.
Or at least let's just go have fun.
I sniff glue. Wait, no, that's not something I'll admit. I take it
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Let's hang out and see if we have any chemistry or electricity
between us. Maybe let's see if we have some other sciences too,
like mixology or biology or geography.
If you want to go to a show for live music, if you want to get out
of town for the day,
If you want to ride bicycles,
if you want to just grab a coffee or a drink at a dive bar.
Message me if you'd actually like to meet in person, but please -
no flakes. I need people in my life who will actually show up. I
do. If you can handle that, let's talk more!
Who are you looking for?
This helps us know who to show you on OkCupid.
