My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The scientist keeps the artist honest, and the artist keeps the scientist human.

I am a science junkie, sailing enthusiast, mystical experience seeker. I am wary of saying things which begin with "I am". Often best to just leave it at that.

I love to invent and design. My first job out of highschool was the only one I searched for; everything else I have done found me from there. Know that you are waiting, and know what you are waiting for; and while you wait, feast your eyes upon the world.

I do computery stuff at an investment advisory firm. I didn't start out with any finance background, but it does present interesting problems to solve. I run the group which creates the software systems on which the company operates; there is something very satisfying about creating things and watching them make your friends & coworkers lives easier. I can rock business drag but am more of a hippie at heart.

I have a sweet little hand-me-down sailboat in the harbor, which consumes a lot of summer time. There is something great about being able to just sail for a few hours, drop anchor in the lee of an island, see the Boston skyline in the distance and yet still feel like you're in another world. I think that steering a sailboat close-hauled into the wind is one of the most zen activities there is; intense yet quiet, powerful yet subtle. A body memory worth forming.

I can be quiet and thoughtful, yet I like to laugh and make others laugh. I think storytelling is a fine art. The feeling of discovering a new idea, a new way of thinking, or how something works, is lovely; sharing your discoveries with someone else who enjoys them as well is even better.

I like to lose myself in music. I play a bit of piano / keys, and love analog synthesizers. I rock out sometimes on an electronic wind synth, which I am pretty enamored with. I am oddly better at improvising than playing something structured. I usually have a musical theme looping in the back of my mind somewhere. BYO soundtrack.

I like to read and think about science, it often gives me goosebumps. But I am something of a goosebumpslut.

When those around me are anxious, I grow calm; when I see someone despair, I fill with hope; but I try to sync up for joy & wonder with another.

I like feeling things as much as I like understanding things, and I am drawn to people who see the difference between the two.

People who are free to be what they feel make me smile.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm the Director of Technology for a financial services firm. Mostly I write internal custom software, but also manage the tech team. It is an inexhaustible source of interesting problems to solve.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Figuring out how things work and explaining them. Childlike intimacy. Listening, empathizing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Depending on what phase I am in, quite possibly my hair. It just kinda does this big old curly thing without any prompting or intervention on my part, and seems to make people happy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Be Here Now, Wheel of Time, Ender's Game, Journey to Ixtlan. Diaspora by Greg Egan blew my f-ing mind.

Tv flavor is mostly somewhat geek-standard; Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, etc. Pretty much everything HBO has done actually. I think Six Feet Under was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. I just got goosebumps sitting here thinking about it.

Miles, Mahavishnu Orchestra (gigantic props to you if you are familiar), MMW. Was very into Phish as a kid, then completely got away from it, but went to some shows in the past few years, and it kinda felt like going home.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'd rather not feel this way about anything.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whatever problem / invention feels tastiest at the moment. Understanding myself. How other people work.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Setting sail.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am pretty ruthlessly open about myself. What would you like to know? Expect a wordy answer.

the idea of doing so gives you a flutter.
