My self-summary
Someone said my profile was long. If your attention span is otherwise, we may have a difficulty.

STATS
Speed: Middling
Stamina: Impressive
Energy Consumption: Weirdly high metabolism
Build: Tall side of medium; skinny
Style: Switch
Privileges: White-ass male
Kinsey Scale: Somewhere between φ and e*
Cities: Cambridge (current); San Francisco, Oakland, Providence (former)
Vegan?: Strictly
Infinitives: Split
"Different than"/"different from": "Different to" (nah, just kidding)
Errata: Mixtapes and vegan cheesecake; feminism; sober, but I say legalize everything; I am the most liberal person I know and I live in fucking BOSTON.

Oh, also: some friends like to crack jokes about my "scrawny vegan ass." No one who's seen me in my underwear makes this joke.

*OK, so since writing this I've remembered that the Kinsey Scale actually begins at 0, but "somewhere between φ-1 and e-1" lacks euphony.
What I’m doing with my life
I make this kind of bullshit.

1. I do direct care with a severely autistic gentleman for one 24-hour shift a week, in exchange for a pittance and a room in his house. 2. I am a community manager/assistant developer/grantwriter for a quarterly(ish) magazine. 3. I am lead designer/artist/animator/writer on an independent video game that sorta resembles Monkey Island mixed with Lemmings, if that makes sense. 4. I'm a part-time student at MassArt in the Studio for Interrelated Media. (I'm not going to get into why I had to drop out of college as a senior 5 years ago, but I'm slowly and belatedly finishing my BFA.)

Things I've done recently:

-made a couple magazines.
-made a music video.
-animated several terms for the Emory University Department of Urology (I'll spare you the details).
-made a jam game for Ludum Dare (it was kind of about Carl Sagan).
-made a commercial for a dude's website.
-made a trailer for a dude's iPhone game.
-edited podcasts for some classy ladies.
-made some music.
-started teaching myself a new game engine.

It's worth pointing out: when I was a kid I thought I'd have to either make computer games at LucasArts or make movies for a studio, and every now and then thought about chucking it all and just playing my guitar. Now I live in a world where I can do all of them. At once. From my bedroom.
I’m really good at
Cooking, bouncing (on beds, off of walls), dancing like a shameless ass (in pink pants), baking vegan cheesecakes, complimenting people, eating chocolate, shaving (that's a lie), popping every joint in my body, making like the best mixtapes* ever, backrubs, scribbling in a notebook til my wrist hurts, grammar and syntax, leaving handprints in the snow, stopping a nosebleed, foursquare (the game with the ball, not that phone thing), quietly absorbing my surroundings, and I'll admit kissing (also: parenthetical statements).

*When I say I make mixtapes, I mean I like to put them on actual tapes, and I put together cover art for the case and everything. But then nobody listens to them and I end up just giving them the MP3's. There is no emoticon for my feelings about this. If there were it would look vaguely like this: :-&
The first things people usually notice about me
I'd like to think people aren't just staring at my birthmark, but who are we really fooling?

Food
Maybe the greatest foods in existence are samosas, chocolate soymilk, and a good slice of vegan pizza with sundried tomatoes and fresh basil from Lanesplitter Pizza in Oakland, California. Maybe not all in the same meal.
The six things I could never do without
Adenine, thymine, guanine, cytosine, Chocolate Silk, more Chocolate Silk.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The difficulties of interactive narrative, why I have barbecue sauce on my pants at 10am, my next manifesto, sex & death, how to explain 4-dimensional geometry to a 4th grader, no seriously I didn't even eat barbecue sauce, the OTCA metapixel (look it up). Cheesecake.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hey Freakazoid, wanna go watch a bear ride a bicycle?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm more or less an "adult" now, and I appreciate that I get to decide what "being an adult" means. Maturity has meant, for me, entertaining more complex thoughts, taking responsibility, being emotionally honest, dealing with my own bullshit on my own terms, and learning how to work with the brain I seem to have - it has not meant wearing unridiculous clothes, sleeping unridiculous hours, or never making an ass of myself on the internet.

All that aside, if you appear to be An Adult, you probably intimidate the fuck out of me.

Also - I love turtles in a way I can't exactly articulate.
I’m looking for

  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
FACT: I am not here exclusively to look for dates. OKC has been weirdly effective at making me friends.

FACT: I'm in a like way totally awesome poly relationship with one psiconauta. Phrases one might use to describe our relationship include "ethically non-monogamous" and "radical." OKC emails about open relationships are kind of how we met, so I'm happy to answer any you feel like asking. I suggest "Your Open Relationship: What The Fuck? And Other Questions" as a subject heading. We're not creepy, we're not going to make you date both of us (um, if that's your trip, we can talk...), I'm not going to make you fill out a questionnaire. But she's not likely to go anyplace, so on the off chance that it's a problem, let's keep it on the Platonic.

FACT: Most of my profile Visitors are actually straight dudes following the link from my girlfriend's profile. I don't know why I'm telling you this.

I happen to like polymaths, artists, scientists, adventurers and homebodies, and people who still like snow. And, like, other shit. I place a high premium on intelligent conversation.

I've made great friends with people whose first email said nothing more than "hello," but I give you permission to be longwinded. I like to read.
