Tendencies towards geekiness and radicalism cause me to not blend fully into most normative social constructs. I clean up nice when necessary, but I try to limit those affairs. In particular, I challenge gender norms in dress, activity and appellation.
I'd like to meet intriguing people, especially if there is mutual attraction and interest in polymathematic collaboration.
I'd like to meet potential lovers, conversationalists, activists, musicians and other collaborators.
Could that be you?
Please note that I am non-monogamous and have a refreshing and consenting primary partner, wrytsalot.
For income, I am a professional figure-out-erer.
I am a social activist and have been involved with organizations working on the big picture, while struggling to make a difference in the here and now.
Most of my energy goes into music, everything from street brass bands and spontaneous collaborations to orchestrated recordings, studying Hindustani and Moroccan traditions, tuning pianos and practicing cornet while waiting for MUNI.
I produce a line of martial arts-inspired clothing.
Also certain crazy mad skills that I've spent much of my adult life honing.
I don't follow movies, and movie stars even less. Clue me in to one better than Taxi Driver and I'll be pleased. Black & white films with subtitles are intriguing.
I enjoy really good music of any variety, although my parents ruined Polka for me--other than that, they are absolutely great folks!
I dearly enjoy good food of all kinds. I skew towards tasty and nutritious food, which can include bacon. I try to refrain from being moralistic about food sources.
How to get from here to there, while enjoying the journey.
You practice some form of consensual non-monogamy, like open relationships, friends with benefits or polyamory.
You want to collaborate on a meal.
Your zest or charm will induce me to write a song about you.
