What I’m doing with my life
I have a mostly enjoyable job at a large local corporation. I spend a lot of my spare time attending local music (pop and classical), playing board games with friends, discussing ideas that compel me, and hanging out on my porch with a cocktail and a book.
The first things people usually notice about me
My bow ties usually stand out in a crowd.

The six things I could never do without
Refried Beans (black or pinto)
Scotch or Gin
The rest are standard basic for high level primate survival: friends, shelter and such, but seriously, Beans and Booze. Not to be mixed together until ingested.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Ethics, economics, metaphysics, politics, music and almost anything that will distract me from getting things taken care of around the house.
On a typical Friday night I am
Three activities generally split my Fridays. First rock shows, genre non specific popular un-popular music at small venues. Next, house parties with friends usually small numbers. Next, and most importantly, holing up in my study, porch or bedroom with a book, hiding from the humanity.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't drive currently as I am a lapsed epileptic who has about one seizure a year. I bike and use mass transit. This is important as people outside of the city limits probably won't end up being a good match for me.

Also I have a pedantic streak that ends up leading me to be morally opposed to spelling "synch" as "sync" and other such things.
You should message me if
Dates, drinks, and discussion sound like an intriguing time
