Autodidact, Japanophile, unabashed transit nerd, urbanist, native Brooklynite, Chicagoan for a spell, voracious reader, food thinker, taste tinkerer, bicycle enthusiast, friendly introvert.
Quiet but opinionated, principled but open-minded, grounded in reality but prone to flights of fancy and heady idealism, a little hardheaded but soft on the inside. Believer in process and the pleasures of slow, analytical thinking. Deeply skeptical of the rhetoric of efficiency and techno-idealism.
I'm in an open relationship with a wonderful human being: RainHailSnowIce. He's my primary partner. Thus, I'm here to meet folks for more casual fun, both individually and in other arrangements. That's not to say I don't want to connect with other humans on a genuine level, but I'm also not looking for serious commitment.
This profile is rather wordy, not because I'm looking for someone who likes or agrees with everything put forth here, but because I'm a poor editor of my own words and get excited about a lot of things.
