Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
In a general phrase, devoid of nuance, but potentially helpful, I'm
a poly-amorous, atheistic, kinky, bisexual, extra-nerdy,
French-Canadian, cis gendered male. I have a strong love for
philosophy and the arts, though I can't claim to have contributed
anything original to either. I've worked for about a dozen non
profit organizations in WA over the last decade, so I consider
myself something of an activist. I was born in Kansas, raised in
Indiana, and learned a few things about who I was, but mostly about
who I didn't want to be, during a stint in the US Navy that was
intentionally cut short. Once that nonsense was over, I found
myself in Seattle where I spent the first few years raving like a
loon, and the last few working for all manner of non-profits doing
fundraising, petition gathering, voter persuasion/registration,
union building, and direct veteran outreach.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just moved to Bellingham in January. My lovely partner Maria and
I are going to school at Western. She's studying education and I'm
studying to be a social justice superhero. There's a lot of causes
that are important to me, but I'm most interested in
sustainability, decreasing the power of money in politics and the
legal system, and supporting veterans within the anti-war movement.
I work for a friend's cleaning company, and plan to go free lance
once I get up north. They say Anarchy starts in the kitchen. I
guess we'll see. :) Pretty well tapped into the local Burning Man
community at least in Seattle. I'm serve as the Cardinal
Misdirection in our regional chapter of the JERK church (ask about
it, there's whiskey and singing involved... actually that's mostly
it.). I write various content ranging from emotional beat poetry,
comic book character rap battles, and assorted prose. I've been
known to play the harmonica on occasion.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Some of the above mentioned hobbies. Surprising people. Mediating
other people's drama. Bike repair. House cleaning, just not mine.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

As far as books, Ishmael sticks out in my mind, A Series of
Unfortunate Events, The Way of Zen, The Zombie Survival Guide,
Anarchy Works, and The Maine Woods
For movies, I'll go Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Tekkon Kinkreet, I
<3 Huckabees, Harold and Maude, The Rocky Horror Picture Show,
Sweeny Todd, and Fantastic Planet.
Online I watch Sci Show, Crash Course, Rap News, and Submedia.tv
elsewise, there's Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, and maybe a bit of
I've been really into old school western and folk lately, I love
experimental stuff. Anything that either has soul, good lyrics that
I can relate too, or a funky new sound that I haven't heard
I'm an omnivore. Straight up. Always interested in trying new
things. I have to be with the way that I cook. :P
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
the internet, lovers, parkour, sleep, community, some new project
to keep me occupied.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whatever it was I have planned a few days from now. How best to
help my house function better, and what I can do around it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Friday nights lately have been rather Atypical.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm into some pretty kinky stuff, some people would call me vanilla
of course. I can be pretty insecure, but I've gotten the feeling
lately that most people just fake it.
