My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Architectural designer, ex-engineer, occasional professor, wanna-be artist, etc. I've been in Seattle for about a year, still trying to determine what makes this place tick. If you're a world-traveler, we'll probably get along. Ask me about my chinchilla story. Also: I think this whole internet dating thing is totally bizarre.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Let's see, aside from the 9-5, I'm working on an architectural guidebook for eastern China, in the early stages planning a trip to Cuba, and just generally enjoying what Seattle has to offer.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
design, photography, writing... most of all, I love dropping in to a new country/culture and trying to find my way.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Is dystopian non-fiction a recognized genre? Naomi Klein style?

Too much music to list, really. but generally classic rock (Beatles, Stones, CCR, Neil Young, Beach Boys, Dylan, Velvet Underground), late 70s/early 80s punk and new wave (The Clash, Television, Richard Hell, Blondie, Talking Heads, Wire, Gang of Four), post-punk, indie, britpop (Radiohead, etc), etc. Jawbreaker. Fugazi/the Evens. In recent years, maybe Black Keys, TV on the Radio. Andrew Bird, Decemberists. Sleater-Kinney, always. Arcade Fire. Did I say Otis redding? Sam Cooke? Rolling Stones? Mingus?? Coltrane?

Shows? TV shows - the Wire, the Sporanos, the first ten years of the Simpsons, Roseanne, News Radio, early Family Guy, Spaced, Peep Show, british The Office (Ok, and the first few years of the US The Office), Mr Show... selective memory of SNL in the 1990-2000 years.... when it *seems* like it was great.... what else. Today, i'd say Breaking Bad, Homeland, Mad Men, Curb Your Enthusiasm, whatever else. You get the idea....

Movies - I've probably watched Groundhog Day more times than any other film, appropriately. Coen Brothers, Tarantino, Chris Nolan, Spike Jones, Charlie Kaufman, Michael Gondry (and PIXAR). Recently: Interstellar, Birdman were picks for the year.

Food: everything? After living in China, I'm really missing the endless variety there: Sichuan hotpot.. xinjiang barbecue... big fan of japanese teppanyaki/sashimi and korean bbq. Generally a big fan of all asian food - thai, indonesian, indian. What else? Spanish, greek, turkish, italian, lebanese. Lots of great food out there, I'm good with anything... Just found out tht there's a Little Sheep (Chinese hotpot chain) in the ID, and I am thrilled! Tapas, always. Xinjiang. Gujarati thali. Etc.

Mostly just looking for a partner in crime. I've been planning an elaborate heist and I need collaborators. it's risky, but the payoff could be huge. serious inquiries only.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'd say the numbers zero through five would be a pretty good choice.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why it's always 'Chairman Meow' but never 'Sun Cat-Sen'
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Dinner, drinks, concerts. Often at the bar with friends, sometimes home with a book, it all depends. Maybe listening to a podcast and doing my ironing for the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Did that episode of Futurama with the dog make you cry a little bit? Um, yeah, me neither... And I would totally do the 'duck tour' with you. I have my medical marijuana certificate, even though it's totally legal now, mostly because the medical shops are cheaper. I whistle "Rhapsody in Blue" to myself a lot more than I probably should.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
if you want to go for a weekend bike ride followed by some cocktails. Or if you'll join me on a drive down the 101 from Seattle to San Diego. Or, especially, if you are Tina Fey or Carrie Brownstein.
