My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Lawyer, social-scientist-in-training, aspiring academic. Into travel, hiking, good beer, good books. Recent(ish) transplant from NYC.

My wife (Coquettish_One) and I have been in an open relationship for a while now and are getting into exploring the open/poly community in the bay area.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working on a Ph.D. at Berkeley. I disliked being an actual lawyer (although I still do it part-time) so my plan is to become a law professor and create other lawyers.

I'm also an adjunct law professor and a graduate student instructor in Legal Studies. Hopefully not your professor/instructor. That would be awkward.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am a black belt at losing things.

Recent first date, I'm standing in front of the bar and see my date approach. Quick hug, then she steps back and looks at me with an almost sad look on her face.

HER: "Oh, your hair!"
ME: "What, is it out of place?"
HER: "You're losing it!"

My receding hairline is the worst physical ailment I've had to deal with thus far in life; I'd say that makes me pretty lucky.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Most of my life has been defined by books in one way or other. I was the kid reading Greek mythology in the school library during lunch. I read a lot of popular science and wish I'd developed that interest early enough to pursue it. Hard to pick favorites but a few of the most life-changing, self-defining books I've read:

The Chronicles of Prydain, Lloyd Alexander
A Wrinkle in Time, Madeline L'Engle
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams
The Salmon of Doubt, Douglas Adams (this was a minor, posthumously-published collection of essays and unfinished fiction and yet it was one of the most influential books I've ever read for reasons I would be happy to elaborate upon)
Dune, Frank Herbert
Why I Am Not A Christian, Bertrand Russell
An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding, David Hume
The Logic of Scientific Discovery, Karl Popper (I haven't actually read all of this one)
The Demon-Haunted World, Carl Sagan
The Selfish Gene, Richard Dawkins
Nothing To Be Afraid Of, Julian Barnes
The Twilight of American Culture, Morris Berman
The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt, Edmund Morris
The Least Dangerous Branch, Alexander Bickel

I also really like the first three books of A Song of Ice and Fire though I wouldn't call them life-changing. I've read a lot of Gaiman and think he's *slightly* overrated, except for Smoke and Mirrors which was the best short story collection I've ever read, and Good Omens which I attribute more to Terry Pratchett. Tolkien is a terrible writer, however influential he's been.

After mostly avoiding TV for about a decade, it seems we're in the midst of a TV renaissance in recent years. Some current/recent favorites:
Doctor Who (Tennant > Smith!)
Battlestar Galactica
Supernatural (bit of a guilty pleasure)
Wilfred
The Walking Dead
Game of Thrones
Futurama (but mostly the pre-cancellation stuff)
Arrested Development (including season 4!)
American Horror Story
Dollhouse
South Park

I just watched Breaking Bad this year; even going into it with the unrealistically high expectations set by everyone I've ever talked to about the show, I was still incredibly impressed.

I grew up on MST3K, The X Files, and Brisco County, Jr. (which only lasted for a year, but what a year!) DS9 > TOS > TNG > all the rest

Movies are a broad topic, let's just say my taste largely tracks that in books and TV. I have also never seen a Woody Allen film I didn't love, even the bad ones. JJ Abrams is a deal breaker.

As far as food goes I'm pretty open. There are few things I won't try. Except mushrooms. Mushrooms are fucking gross.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Books, especially popular science, philosophy, and sci-fi/fantasy

Coffee
Video games
My bike (or at least *a* bike, since they keep getting stolen)
New York City, which still feels like home even after 3 years in the bay.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Epistemic pluralism, which is what my dissertation is going to be about. I think.

Also I recently submitted an abstract to a conference promising to produce a "unified theory of legal epistemology." I have no idea what the hell that even means.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
"I have no typical Friday night!" Isn't that clever? Aren't you charmed by how unpredictable and quirky I am?

(But more seriously, about half my Friday nights involve Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game with grad school friends. Yeah, I'm that cool.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I was saying boo-urns.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have informed opinions on the Oxford comma, the proper use of the phrase "to beg the question," or the relative merits of the Tenth vs. Eleventh Doctors (including whether they should properly be called the Eleventh vs. Twelfth).

On the other hand, if you put your astrological sign in your profile or have ever used the phrases "it is what it is" or "everything happens for a reason," we probably won't get along very well. Also, I am 6'1", but if you have a height requirement stated in your profile, I'm going to think you're pretty damn shallow and not be interested in meeting you.
