My self-summary
37, finishing another degree, own a business running a giant industrial building where people make things, and am a mix of serious and fun. I am serious about fun, and I take the world more seriously than others - for example, I believe there are solutions to the situations we struggle with, and that I can make a difference in my lifetime.

I'm in a super stable relationship and am looking for someone who is also in a super stable relationship, who is interested in activities while understanding that a lot of my time is taken up.
What I’m doing with my life
This spring's projects:

Papers to publish on
- Network displays in 3d
- Research on Portland Police Stop Data, 2004-2011
- Systemizing Metaphor and Updating the Systems Metaphor

Pirate Mail, from which I take my namesake:
People write letters to strangers, facilitated by myself, and the letters get given away to strangers, to see if they arrive. The addresses are not street addresses, but 'affiliative' addresses, such as:

deadletter
via Zoo Bomb,
A Portland Bike Activity
Write about: Fun things to do in your city!


or

Dead Letter
They make things at
Watershed, PDX
A Portland Industrial Building
Write about: Projects people are making!
I’m really good at
I used to be white collar - now I have mad white collar and blue collar skills. I can balance the books, write a publication, weld, do carpentry, fix diesels and gas engines, cut with a plasma cutter or oxy-acetyl, cook, bake, crunch numbers or design an effigy.

I have a head full of math and a heart full of art. I believe that, in cases of mutual defection, someone has to go first to create trust. I don't curse at other drivers, I assume that if something needs extra work that I'll be the one who has to put in that work, and that a rising tide lifts all boats. I am not the tide: I am a tide-marker, clanging away in the desolate wastes that the currents underneath have already shifted.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm busy. We're doing something interesting. I know a lot of things. Not much surprises me. I enjoy everything I do.

The six things I could never do without
Envelopes.
A Good Fucking Pen. As in, a fucking uni-ball® Vision™ Rollerball Pens, Fine Point, Black, Dozen. A sharpie will do better than some shit-fucked bic. A bic will do.
Patches/Stickers/Swag -
Embrace-All-Information-Flow Attitude -
A project
A sense of timing. - And in my case, when is the right moment to stop talking.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Metaphors for group problem solving. The emergence of frames from an exploratory discourse. Art to build next, and the counterplay between art for personal indulgence and art to advance shared projecting.
On a typical Friday night I am
1) Sometimes deadletter, as a project, is at someone's show, so I'm there soliciting letters or putting people on envelopes.
2) About 50% of the time I'm in the shop building things with a group of makers.
3) On a personal expedition to meet new people, find new projects, taking only the pile of envelopes in my back pocket and a few patches.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think kombucha is GROSS.

Oh, and I eat my butter side down.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 27–42
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
If you'd like to write letters to other people. If you want to help me spraypaint envelopes. If you want to sit at a table and listen to people talk about their hopes and dreams and write letters to strangers. If you want to carry mail to far lands. If you want to get breakfast or lunch.
