My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The Data Points: Born in OR (Tillamook, where the cheese comes from), raised in Portland, long-time Seattle resident. Work in the arts & entertainment industry, where I spend most of my waking moments engaged with arts and artists, either making art or assisting other people in making art, viewing art or thinking about art I've seen. Art. It's a big part of my life.

I'm a pretty unpretentious sort of person. I don't go in much for artifice, either in appearance or or behavior - and so tend more toward a more casual "what you see is what you get" persona, although I do have the superpower of going from Gore-Tex to formal in a matter of seconds. I value honesty, forthrightness, having principles and standing up for them, and treating other human beings with respect and dignity, as I hope the treat me in turn. I try to be an honorable person, although like all human beings I have my flaws and annoying behaviors, to be sure.

I like doing all sorts of things: going to movies, plays and concerts; dining out or cooking in; reading books; camping, hiking, kayaking, sailing, travel in general, thrift-shopping, outdoor markets, pub-hopping, and the like. Not much into organized or team sports, although I can generally be coerced into watching baseball and soccer without strenuous objection (I've just been christened "The Wall" for my superior flag-football blocking skills). And just because I've never done something, doesn't mean I wouldn't like to at least try it at least once (I'm a firm believer in the proposition that one should never say "no" to anything when it's the first time).

I'm also kind of a smarty-pants, sometimes too much for my own good. And I have a very low tolerance for Right-Wing/Fundamentalist/Racist/Homophobic/Misogynistic/Tea Party B.S. - in case you were wondering. Which, I hope you were.

Also, I'm something of a nerd. Theatre nerd, space nerd, Sci-Fi nerd, technology nerd. Nerds are cool, really, we are. Everybody should have at least one thing they're passionately nerdy about, whatever it may be. Most of my friends are nerds, and in direct contradiction to the stereotype, they're all delightful people!

If you're smart (book or street, either works for me), funny (and yes, even cynics can be funny, in that dry, "I'm not sure if you're joking or not" way of theirs), somewhat geeky, not too full of themselves, like to do fun, interesting, challenging things, have a good balance of outgoing sociability and quiet insularity, enjoy good food, good drink, good conversation and good company, are independent-minded, but maintain strong support-systems, and aren't afraid to exhibit occasional quirky, nay, even eccentric behavior (even if it's hidden under a facade of workaday "normality"), then we should definitely chat.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm in the business of ensuring that artists have the tools - professonally, spiritually, physically, financially - to do their art - both in my job, and socially in my various volunteer capacities. I enjoy what I'm doing; it's rewarding, stimulating, and a source of pleasure. It's where my friends, colleagues, and the people I care about most in my life are generally gathered, and in a city I love to death.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking; anything related to theatre; preparing for long trips, natural disasters, and modest-scale remodeling projects; making other people feel comfortable; tax preparation; party organizing; driving a stick; reading upside-down and backwards; multi-tasking; having a good time no matter where I am.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Coffee, Swiss Army Knife, Theatre, Friends, Hot Sauce, good reading material.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I can do to improve things; for myself, for my community, for the planet. I try to follow the "camper's credo: if you pack it in, pack it out; take memories, not souvenirs; and leave things in better shape then when you found it."

And of course, sex...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either working on or attending a theatre event.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't have much in the way of secrets - regrettable past shenanigans, perhaps, but nothing that would cause much more than a raised eyebrow.
