My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I dislike putting myself in a box. If I had a predominant socio-cultural identifier, it would definitely be Californian, with all the diversity that might imply.

Child of the Bay Area working poor, read some books, witnessed and instigated some troubles, wandered out and saw a good chunk of the world, learned alot, and continue to search for something, though I'm still not really sure what- every time I think I've arrived, something new emerges.

I'm fascinated with network culture and social fragmentation. This historical moment presents humankind with more mobility and information than ever before, and I try to act in the spirit of the times. Engaged on a global level, but find most quality of life in localism and camaraderie.

I contain stereotypical multitudes.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
For the past couple years I've occupied alot of my time as a metal fabricator (welder) for both artistic and industrial applications. I love what I do. Any time I get home covered in dust and grease, having built something elegant or useful, it almost surely was a good day.

Studied political science in my early 20s, but my anticapitalist positions didn't go over well with most of the faculty, and the quasi-corporate culture was driving me insane.

Recently have developed an intense interest in the technical infrastructure of the Internet, and somehow seem to be amassing a haphazard network of boxes in my room. Strangely, after years of walled-garden ignorance, the expansive horizons of Linux and TCP/IP seem quietly liberating.

Work hard, create stuff daily, seek out unique and unconventional company, party more than I should, and take life as it comes, with minimal worries or expectations.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Relating with folks. I've had friends of almost all varieties of ethnic and sexual/gender orientations, and I pride myself on taking people as they are and not judging or imposing on them. My grandmother (who raised me) treated everybody with an exceptional generosity of respect, dignity and empathy- I hope to emulate the high standard of human decency she embodied.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Deep voice
Carhartts
Ironworker boots
Listening more than speaking

Grew up in a grimey hood in East San Jose, so I can be a bit rough around the edges. It sometimes throws people off when I start talking about art, politics, or some nerdy internet meme.
Pshaw on their biases.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
- Will read most anything that isn't ignorant. Special affinities for socio-political topics, art books, experimental fiction, cyberpunk scifi, complexity theory, and poetry.

- Cooking usually means a big pot of cabbage soup or bean stew. Lots of rice. Peasant food, hearty and cheap. Otherwise I survive on taco trucks and banh mi.

- Glitch noise, alt hip-hop and Old World chant are my working music. Mornings start with old-timey blues. Soft spots for punk, extreme metal, industrial, and Northern Cali gangster rap as reminders of people and places and things now past.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

+ Coffee, as a hopeless caffeine addict
+ Afternoon naps
+ Solid American-made boots
+ Notebooks, sketchbooks, and my preferred pens
+ Engaging reading material
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What smart idea or person just interested me
What amazing art just inspired me
My current or next project / job / gig
The emerging neofeudal dystopia
Post-nihilist praxis
Autonomous Zones
Networked chaotic systems
How I can reach out to more queer folks
How beautiful trees are
How vibrant graffiti is
Where the hell I left my lighter...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
In a warehouse. This might involve working, partying, or some combination of the two.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
-- Not hard requirements, but definite plusses --
You'd choose Oakland over the City any day
You make stuff
You're independent, creative, or unusual
You sympathize with anarchist thought
You can help me install Gentoo
You think TV is a mind-numbing and life-stealing opiate
You'll laugh with me at the absurdity of it all

I can always use more friends with artistic, Leftist or technical inclinations.
