Growing up in the the hills of Northern California allowed me to develop an affinity for nature. I like hiking, slow bike rides and outdoor adventures in general.
Coffee is another pleasure of mine. I'm lucky enough to live near Blue Bottle and one of my favorite past times is drinking a cup down by the water in Jack London. Although, afternoons and evenings is when I enjoy my English toffee stevia with tea.
I like to play chess. I am impassioned with the depth of possibilities, combinations, and patterns found within the seemingly simplistic set of rules, pieces, and spaces. I like to think of it as a poetry or even painting, making beautiful combinations with a set amount of pieces, words, or colors.
I love learning about the world and the science of it. I'm fascinated by the universe and it's overwhelming scale. I'm not one to claim I know why we are here or why the universe exists, but I enjoy the great mystery and it's really fun to think about.
I also like to tinker, take things apart and fix them.
I enjoy playing and watching sports, especially NBA basketball. I appreciate the strategies behind them and their representation of our inherent athletic and competitive nature. Another passion of mine is motorsports. I greatly admire seeing engineering and design being pushed to new levels as well as the extremes that people will go through to set bars in human ability and endurance.
Critical social justice, race, and class theories are important to me. I'm still in the process of learning ways to deconstruct the systems of oppression and understanding the intersections of these fundamental problems.
I am in a healthy and honest polyamorous relationship with my partner but I would like to meet someone special to be a part of my life. If you are not familiar with polyamory please do some research before contacting me :)
