I like to geek out about stuff and things. Common topics include cars, psychology, linguistics, music, movies, and burning man project ideas.
I am impulsive.
Sometimes I forget that I am impulsive.
I like to climb at my local bouldering gym SBP.
I will wrestle anyone who is willing.
I'm a gamer, although I don't have much time for it these days. I really like the social aspect of card/board game nights, playing Cards Against Humanity, Munchkin, Settlers, Dominion, etc. I really enjoy the more competitive 1 on 1 games like chess, pool, Starcraft, go, etc., but I know most other people don't.
Summer festival season keeps me pretty busy. Critical Massive, Burning Man, Oregon Country Fair, etc.. This year I've been taking it pretty easy, so next year I will have to go all out! Although it actually happens after summer has officially ended, Decibel Festival is one of my favorites, and it's local to Seattle!
I work in the tech industry, but not on the software/programming side of things. It's random that I ended up here. I started working as a carpenter, then a visual artist, and now I fix computers.
I'm a music and movie enthusiast. I'm also really into A/V performances but those are so rare that I couldn't even come up with a list of 10 A/V shows that really impressed me. My music tastes are all over the place. My movie tastes on the other hand are somewhat formulaic; I like foreign independent dramas with amazing cinematography and acting(it doesn't hurt to have a great soundtrack or to be based on a true story).
I started doing visual art through the medium of video in 2001. Before that the only visual art I was involved in was street art. VJing replaced my fascination with DJing, and became my career for a few years. I sometimes miss working at concerts and parties for a living, but it was nice to get my weekends back, instead of working Thursday/Friday/Saturday from 8pm-2am every week, all year long.
There is the poetry slam thing, I've been going to shows for s while now. I don't really write, and I really don't perform, I just enjoy going, and connecting with really emotional and intense snippets of people's lives, in the form of spoken word. It's an amazing medium and I'm surprised that it's not a lot more popular.
I'm bi and I prefer to date people who are bi, or queer, or some other word that means something other than strictly hetero or homo, whether that be pan or whatever. I'm also poly about half the time. I don't think it's for everyone, but I don't think mono is for everyone as well.
From time to time I like to participate in the kink community. I went the SEAF, and I have a membership at the CSPC. My favorite Hump submission this year was made by people in this community.
I was born in Seattle, but raised in California mostly. I moved back here in 1998 and immediately fell in love with the rave scene and electronic dance music, and although I don't go out raving anymore, but remains an important thing in my life, in the form of events, geeking out on VJing/DJing and production, and a lot of my friends who still rave for a living.
