My self-summary

I'm just this guy, you know?



I'm passionate about learning and doing new things. I find
building and repairing things yourself is fun, and doing anything
that you can take pride in to be supremely awesome.

What I’m doing with my life

I've recently moved to New York for a new job as the CTO of a women's fashion brand!



(If you don't know what a CTO is: it's basically "Nerdmaster General.")



I've got an indie game company on the side to satisfy my needs to write. (I make video games that are more akin to stage plays...)

I’m really good at

Reading, Thinking, Observing the subtext of a situation (many times I've gotten an incredulous "how did you know that from that one sentence?")

I used to be good at singing, but I have let that fall by the wayside in recent years, although I can still sight-read fairly well.



I'm good at programming, and excel at the rare art of going into somebody's terribly designed code and understanding what's going on there... although this is usually only intriguing to employers, not girls.



I'm also apparently good at throwing parties. There's something about making sure everyone's happy (or drunk) that I really like. A strong Hosting mentality?

The first things people usually notice about me
Usually the curly hair or the blue eyes. (Assuming I have my glasses off.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Hrm, who've I been reading lately? Chuck Palahniuk, Neil Gaiman, Warren Ellis, Robert Heinlein, and Issac Asimov come to mind. I've been slowly reading through the Hugo award winners, and have started in on the Pulitzer Fiction and Non-Fiction categories. I also like reading good children's fiction, stuff like A Wrinkle in Time, NIHM, Harry Potter, etc. Anything well-written and/or thought-provoking and/or fun will get me.



I always like good movies, and I sometimes like bad movies. I seldom watch a movie more than once, though, because most are never as fun the second time around. As with books, it's all about the story, and I'm a big fan of good stories.



Music is much the same way: I like good music. Thusfar I've found music with merit in pretty much every broad category, although some seem to have a higher density of good music than others. Presently I'm listening to a lot of Information Society, Daft Punk, Jethro Tull, OCRemix, Disasterpeace, Yes, Johnny Cash, Depeche Mode, Machinae Supremacy, and Paul McCartney (Beatles through modern), but this list is by no means exhaustive. I have several people that apparently exist only to feed me the cutting edge of music and/or things I have not yet heard from ages past.



I'm a fan of Mexican, Thai, Japanese, Italian, Irish, and Indian foods, and am generally up for trying anything new. Spicy is a plus, seafood is generally a minus. Ramen and Pho are also amazing, and the seafood rule is relaxed for these tasty, tasty soups.



(If you think ramen is something only for college students, we should go on a date so I can prove otherwise...)



I'm always looking for new things to try. If you've got a good suggestion for me to try as far as any of these categories go, please, let me know.

The six things I could never do without

Six things? I think the entire list boils down to Sustenance and New Stimulus. Staying alive and not being bored are pretty important!

Yeah yeah...

I spend a lot of time thinking about

The past, the future, the nuances of social interaction. My dreams. Sometimes it seems I'm the only one left who still chases silly dreams.

On a typical Friday night I am

I am either working on a project by myself or with friends, or hanging out with said friends, be it a small get-together or a large party. Beaches tend to be involved a lot, and I approve of that.



Note: Beaches have been missing since moving to Austin. I approve of Austin in spite of this.



Doublenote: Now that I'm in the Bay Area, the beach-enjoying may resume.



Triplenote: the beaches here are weird and cold! :(



Quadruplenote: It's sad that my life has changed so much in the 7 years since I first wrote this. It's less about beaches and hangouts and more about computers and drinks and hangouts, often at the Hacker Dojo. The only reason I'm not removing all of the above is that I'd like to get back to that former state of being in the future. At least in part... Happy Hours at the Hacker Dojo are kinda awesome.

Quintuplenote: I'm back in New York, and now it's... 10 years since I was in beach-love? But it's NYC this time, so the good beaches are closer but all the white sand ones are on Long Island and man-made. Alas.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Heh. Here? I'll admit that I think glasses and overalls can be big turn-ons.

Also, height doesn't matter to me when looking for a mate, in either direction. I think it's mildly sexy when a girl's taller than me, and if a girl has to pull me down to kiss her that's also hot. : )
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 18–35
  • Near me
  • For new friends
You should message me if

You are intrigued, interested or interesting. Or turned on by
alliteration.


Or any reason, really.
