I hold a master's degree in engineering and work in high tech.
Looking to make friends as well as date. Really.
I'm an out of practice musician who enjoys playing a wide variety of instruments, but the only instrument I can say I've achieved a very high level of skill at is guitar, which I've been playing for about 30 years. Besides guitar I also play Appalachian dulcimer, hammered dulcimer, didgeridoo, harmonica, banjo, ukulele, and hand drums (djembe and dumbek mainly.)
I am a proud geek and I subscribe to Make magazine. I have played around with a few projects using the Arduino microcontroller and I am handy with a soldering iron. I went to Burning Man for the last 6 years but am not going this year and may not go next year either. I do some woodworking. I recently ventured into the local BDSM scene and I've turned my DIY skills toward making kinky toys. I've made a few nice wooden paddles lately.
I'm polyamorous. I won't consider a partner who does not respect that.
I LOVE Dr. Who. I learned to knit in Jr. High so I could re-create Tom Baker's long multi-colored scarf. I managed about a foot and a half before my mother took pity and finished it for me. I also went to high school with John Barrowman of Torchwood fame.
If you know what "epistemology" means I'll be your friend for life. Two of my favorite books in the universe are Prometheus Rising and Quantum Psychology by Robert Anton Wilson.
