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. I recently wrote a book; ask me about it.
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? I read a lot, and it would be silly to list everything. I can always go back to dog-eared Vonnegut paperbacks, and I always get a kick out of Haruki Murakami... Recently I've been reading more Sci-Fi than is probably healthy. "2312" by Kim Stanley Robinson, for instance.

Music: I've been a fan of 60's rock probably since before I was born. I grew up on the Beatles, Crosby Stills & Nash, Joni Mitchell, Simon & Garfunkel; and later on got into the Rolling Stones, Zombies, Neil Young, the Kinks, etc. Whenever I get sick of new music, I'll gladly put on all/any of those and be perfectly happy. There's a lot more, obviously, but since I recently got a turntable again, I can at least narrow down to the records I've bought, specifically, to enjoy outside of the streaming/spotify/youtube world. These include: Sleater Kinney, Vanilla Fudge, The Who, Tacocat, Chastity Belt, Arcade Fire, The War on Drugs, etc. So, this should be a longer conversation.

I like all the cool bands, but I'm thinking about changing this section to just Fleetwood Mac and Hall and Oates and other 70s MOR that I enjoy only-half-ironically.

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!
I love the Beatles; but "Hey Jude" is seriously the worst.
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.
