My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm rather geeky and occasionally charming.
I'm quiet and thoughtful, and I enjoy the company of those who are talkative and thoughtful.
I am a bit prone to thinking too much.
I admire intellectual curiosity, self-awareness, and empathy.
I adore cloudy weather. If you ever hear me going on about what a beautiful day it is, you can bet the sky is gray. I blame my New Mexico upbringing.

I animate game characters for a living and can occasionally be spotted wandering the forested hills east of Oakland. I've lived all over the country in recent years but I plan on settling in The Bay for a long while. The East Bay has been fantastic so far, but If there's one thing I miss from home it's the broader space and wide-open vistas.

I'm involved in a polyamorous relationship. I have one serious, long-term girlfriend, and on OKC I'm mostly focused on casual dating (which could be short term or long term) and not worrying to much about specific outcomes.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I get paid to make game characters move.

Spending most of my days animating on a computer, one of my resolutions for the new year is to take a little more time to do actual physical art.

In my spare time I work on indie game projects, draw things, play board games with friends, and pickle vegetables. Check out this game I made. It's called Attack of the Rocket Lizard.

I can play a little piano and I'm learning the harmonica.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Visual-spatial thinking.
I pick up the basics of new skills pretty quickly.
I've been told that I have the patience of a saint.
I strive to always be compassionate.
I can probably kick your butt in Mario Kart.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably my generally awkward but friendly demeanor. I get a lot of compliments on my eyes. They're almost black in the right light.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like the Discworld series, Isaac Asimov, and the book Dragon's Egg.

I'm also a fan of comics, both in print and on the web. Some favorites are the Scott Pilgrim series, Subnormality, Order of the Stick, and Fun Home.

I'll eat nearly anything you put in front of me. My comfort foods are Japanese and Middle-Eastern cuisine. My favorite beers are Stouts and Porters.

I'm especially fond of an old family recipe of lamb-and-rice grape leaf rolls boiled with lemon juice. It's awesome if you like sour, savory food, and it's a lot of fun to make with a bunch of people. Not to be confused with the cold oily Greek version. These are served hot straight from the pot.

I grew up listening to oldies and 90's rock. Beach Boys, Nirvana, The Zombies, Green Day, etc.
I've recently discovered Fishtank Emsemble and I think I'm in love.
My favorite band is probably The Ditty Bops.

Some of my favorites are Stranger than Fiction, Spirited Away, Her, and the Godzilla series.

I'm a bit of an animation geek (I am an animator, after all). I love Studio Ghibli and Pixar, and I like finding animated films that are a little off the beaten path, like The Book of Kells.

Favorites include the first 10 seasons of The Simpsons, Star Trek: The Next Generation, 30 Rock, Futurama, and Adventure Time.

Some of my favorite games are Yoshi's Island, Zelda: Majora's Mask, Earthbound, and Minecraft. I also enjoy arty games such as Shadow of the Colossus, Braid, Journey, and Gone Home.

As for board games, a couple of my favorites are Ticket to Ride and Betrayal at House on the Hill.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order.
1) Someone to bounce ideas off of
2) Cloudy skies
3) Time to myself
4) Daydreams
5) Toilet Paper
6) Fidget toys (Right now, I'm playing with a slinky in one hand whenever I'm not typing)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think a lot about how I think, the shape of my thoughts, why I arrive at the conclusions I arrive at, where my emotional reactions come from, etc.

I'm often assembling paintings in my head or thinking out dialog, whether it be for fictional characters of rehearsing for real-life conversations. I'm usually thinking about some major creative project or another while struggling to stay focused on the one or two projects I'm actually working on.

In short, I'm usually daydreaming.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I usually go out on Weeknights or Sundays to play board games with friends and maybe watch a show or something.

I used to play a lot of D&D but it's been hard to find and find a good gaming group that focuses more on the characters and storytelling.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I officially learned to ride a bike only a few months ago.

I used to do a 3-times-a-week webcomic back in high school. That in itself is not super private, but I'm embarrassed looking back at how terrible my art was, and how hard-to-follow the writing often was. There are still some strips in there that make me laugh, though.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
The romantically interested must be okay with (or at least curious about) non-monogamy and prepared for the open and honest communication that makes it work.

Beyond that... Maybe I can show you how to make stuffed grape leaves. Maybe you can help learn the harmonica. Maybe we can design games together.

Tell me about an interesting dream you had and where you think it came from or what you think it means.
