My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge;
that myth is more potent than history;
that dreams are more powerful than facts;
that hope always triumphs over experience;
that laughter is the only cure for grief;
and I believe that love is stronger than death.

Points for anyone who recognizes the Storytellers' Creed. When I'm not telling tall tales I love to play games that take thought, make delicious meals with close friends, create art of all kinds, talk about matters both weighty and frivolous, go on adventures, and consume all the films and books.

First and foremost I am attracted to intelligence, integrity, ingenuity, and playfulness. Socially I tend to trek with artists, hippies, goths, punks, and geeks; there's a soft spot in my heart for anyone who is passionate enough about some part of life to wander completely off the beaten path.

I believe the best lives are those richest in experiences, to that end I try to do everything under the sun at least once. This philosophy has led to moments banal, surreal, disgusting, delicious, humbling, and sublime; even the most miserable of them I would never willingly forget.

Hosting regular game nights.
Writing when the spirit moves me.
Teaching myself to play the piano.
Learning to swing and blues dance.
Building community based spaces.
Organizing massive pranks.
Loving my friends to death. (Disposing of the bodies is kind of a hassle...)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My laugh, probably from several seats away. (It is legend amongst my circle of friends and has earned me many a free theater ticket.)

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
#6: My cars and trucks down comforter.
#5: Chocolate cows, which produce delicious chocolate milk.
#4: Netflix, which keeps me company on lonely nights.
#3: My clawfoot bathtub. I swear the claws are ornamental.
#2: My man-eating leopard. I swear the claws are ornamental.

And the number one thing I could never do without?

#1: David Letterman Top 10 lists.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Intentional communities, organic food, paleo diet, sustainable economies, transhumanism, Euro board games, pranks, the interface between language and culture, moderate libertarian politics, macroeconomic trends, technology, Magic decks, Burning Man, BDSM, polyamory, stories, my friends, dreaming, the music in my head, science fiction, stained glass window design, the future, love, jokes, my family, and the heat death of the universe, all in no particular order.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hitting the weightlifting studio with my wife and several of my closest friends. Then we go back to one of our friends' places and eat a delicious (paleo) home-cooked meal. Afterward, we crack out the dice and play role-playing games until way past our bedtimes.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't actually like David Letterman Top 10 lists.
