My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Here's a question. Why are most my top percent matches in California? Do more people from California use OKCupid, or do I belong in California? Am I really a West Coast guy?

There was a fear I was going to be a pyromaniac when I was younger. But, I outgrew it, or actually managed to channel the remaining adult mania into the fire arts. You know, melting metal and casting it into various shapes and sizes; casting glass, and firing clay. I even used to blow glass, but the hobby got too expensive.

So, I guess I'm an artist. When asked about that, I have to resist the urge to tell the unvarnished truth, which is: "I like to make cool shit". Sorry, no deep social meaning, no obscure symbolism, no associational engine off the tracks, just like making cool-looking shit.

I'm also a teacher, teaching bronze casting. So, I'm a bronze age hero to some.

I'm also a very manly man. I gotta be, since, well, how many other men do you know can cut metal with electric fire?

Electric fire good!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Art! Makin' Art! And teaching it too, which pays the bills.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making material instrumentalities manifest.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My spectacular manly buttocks.

No, but I am muscular, for being in average shape. I try to maintain a healthy, active, athletic lifestyle so that I can do my work.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Me. (Too obvious?)
2) My Brain (I try to keep it in shape, but actually also...)
3) My Body (Can't do much without it, and I use more than my brain to think.)
4) My Friends and Family (Who may occasionally be a pain, but then I reciprocate. So it all works out).
5) Material Instrumentality (the whole culture/tech thing is better than just these pathetic teeth and claws of mine).
6) My Skills (I collect skills the way others collect knick-knacks. And we all owe society as a whole for these skills. Sorry, Ayn Rand fans, I prefer civilized company, so Shoo!).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The Fermi Paradox.
