I recently finished my Masters in Philosophy, spending the last year in Belgium. Before that I did environmental and human rights work and election work for progressives and Obama for about 10 years. Currently I work for a home solar/energy efficiency company which is implementing Massachusetts' solid energy policy.
I paint. I write. I love bombast, wit, play, and people barreling down on life. I often find my head in the clouds (as my brain doesn't have an off-switch), until my senses compel me back to earth... which happens as a hedonist of sorts, open to and affirming of all the pleasures of life. I'm very much a beer aficionado (yeah craft beer!), homebrew (just finished a Pannepot clone), love to cook (anything), and especially enjoy smoking weed. I also edit reviews for a small videogaming website, am a practicing museum junkie, and I love riding my bike (to work, but really anywhere - preferably with some wind in my hair).
I like candor, thought, creativity, authenticity, care, passion, curiosity, singularity, intensity, taste, deformation, left wing politics, play, desire, open eyes, attention to what moves you, rigorous ideas, appreciating moments, inspiration, being overcome, the little things, overcoming, unfolding worlds...
I grew up religiously evangelical but jettisoned that long ago. Also, I'm from Minnesota originally, but have lived in Senegal, Chicago, Berkeley, Ann Arbor, Belgium and Boston. Mostly, interested in someone interesting to spend time with on occasion, for all manner of reasons, with bonuses for insightful, thoughtful, gripping conversation. My wife, MegsinMass, and I enjoy other partners, so I'm looking for extra fun and connection (more bonus points for non-monogamous / polyamorous gals).
