Looking to make new friends, dating, and the usual reasons people are OKC. I live in Seattle, but work for a Silicon Valley company, so I'm down in Menlo Park & SF really often.
Smart and compassionate people are my type. Not really into getting drunk, clubbing, celebrity gossip, etc.
What I’m doing with my life
Just finished up a gutting and completely remodeling a 110 year old Cap Hill triplex. My hair is grey now, but I learned a lot.
Before that, I did community organizing for safer streets for walking and biking around Seattle, where I got a ton of shit built in 2 years (if I may say).
I lived in the Netherlands for a year in grad school, and it still heavily influences how I try to live my life.
Professionally, I work for a company that I love doing behavior research (and eating way too much free food for my own good.)

mostly by obscure science-fiction authors).
NASA used our music to wake up one of the Mars rovers (hopefully
Love food, especially almost any sushi, Portland food carts. If we
become friends (and your butt can handle it), I can take you on a
calorie-neutral summer Portland food cart bike tour.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working late. I can't help it. We have a great view of Lake Union and it's hard to leave sometimes.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I often find Asian people more physically beautiful than white
people. (sorry fellow white people, I love you too!)
I also don't have great photos on OK Cupid.
You should message me if
You're looking for friendship or dating (no pen pals). That's
probably you...so start writing!
If you want an excuse to go for a long walk or bike ride, I am
happy to help introduce you to our region's many lovely trails.
