My self-summary


My wife and I have an awesome, open, and, unfortunately, currently long-distance relationship.

Basically I'm in the market for a 'real' relationship that is local to me. Ideally you would also be polyamorous and already have a primary partner, or at least be Super OK with this kind of lifestyle.

ANYWAY, about me: I'm laid back, but with a sharp sense of humor and a tendency toward being a cynic. I've also got an always-on sense of curiosity, and I try to contain it, but it's easy for me to just blurt out something like 'I wonder if hermit crabs have gills?!' apropos of nothing.

Good conversation is, over anything else, what I most enjoy. Although a bad movie shared in good company can be a close second.

My interests are all over the place, so I'm comfortable with most topics (aside from sports I guess), and I love to talk to anyone who is passionate about a subject.

Being interesting, and being interested in things are my most valued traits.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm wrapping up a Ph.D. in particle astrophysics. I really dig it, but it is, you know, Work, so I'm going to focus on the stuff I do for fun here. But obviously feel free to message me if for some reason you have a keen interest in the cosmogenic neutrino spectrum or something.

Current shit I'm into:

Weight loss, health. I've lost about 90 pounds since Fall 2012. That's enough to move me through two classes of obesity and all the way down to, well, normal. I'm extremely pleased about it. If you'd like someone to nod along with you as you rail against the evils of sugar, I'm your guy.

I'm also trying to exercise -- I did my first for-real 5k on Thanksgiving. It was a lot of fun and I hope to do many more.

Old school video games: I've gotten really into arcade games recently -- to the point where I actually built my own custom USB arcade control panel. And if you see a bunch of "NEG"s on the Defender machine at the 16-Bit Bar/Arcade downtown, that's me.

Last year I bought myself my first SNES and Playstation 2. I enjoy them immensely.

80s-era Apple Computers. I've got a small collection that I'm always fiddling with, and I'm probably one of the few people under 30 who can program an 8-bit CPU and repair a floppy drive. SPOILER: Oregon Trail is not as hard as you remember!

This summer a project of mine to convert and play animated GIFs on Apple II computers made it to the Hack A Day blog and Cult of Mac. I got over 21,000 views on YouTube!

tweetTrek. This one is the most recent and the most in-progress. It's a quasi-weekly twitter event where a bunch of people watch an episode of star trek together and give it an MST3K treatment. Search for us on twitter!

tldr: I make stuff, I hack stuff. I try to stay healthy.
I’m really good at
Just, you know... computers. Any fucking thing about computers. Way, WAY above average at this.

Music? Kind of. I can play the violin, and I Know Some Chords on the guitar/ukulele. One time I remixed an Usher song to play on a Gameboy.

I'm funny under the right laboratory conditions (filling out dating profiles is unfortunately not my Time To Shine).

Getting on that NEXT next. I'm ahead of the curve on things a lot.

Being a scientist but also not being a completely miserable dickhead. These are co-morbid more often than you'd think.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told I have a nice voice and a satisfying laugh.

Aside from that someone usually blurts out what I do, so they end up noticing that I'm smart (or at least do something smart).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Gonna limit this to stuff I've liked in the last few months:

Altered Carbon, Mona Lisa Overdrive, Transmetropolitan (yes I went through a cyberpunk phase)

Gravity, Her, Frozen (yup!)

Breaking Bad, Peep Show (I don't watch a whole lot of TV. 10 hrs/wk probably).

[Terrible French Dance Pop], CHVRCHES, Starcadian, Chet Atkins

Chipotle bowls, BBQ, fried chicken, Mexican, Mediterranean, Indian
The six things I could never do without
10 megabits per second or more
My puggle (she's a rescue, if that's a Thing you care about)
A challenging project
Learning new things
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I walk around with my Early-90s-Eyes on a lot so I can go "whoaaahh... the future!" It's very entertaining.

"Resting bitch face" is a horrible and poisonous idea. You don't owe it to anyone to look as attractive as possible 24/7 and the expectation is sickening.
On a typical Friday night I am
Staying in, reading, learning French, programming, playing some old video game, watching star trek, or all of the above.

I do still Go Out With People, obviously, but this rarely happens consistently on Fridays.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm currently (since spring 2012) trying to watch all the Star Trek. So far I've finished The Next Generation, DS9, Voyager (ugh), the Original Series, Enterprise, and The Animated Series. Currently doing a victory lap through the movies.

I must do it because it is there to do. It is my Everest.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 20–36
  • Located anywhere
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
*you want someone to play oldass video games with

*you're in the market for a default hangout buddy

*you like bad movies

*вы бы хотели практиковать ваш русский

Feel free to IM me, if you like. I'm usually pretty bored.
