Hi. I have a steady routine of a life which could maybe use some
shaking up. I was born in the midwest and raised in the mid-south,
and couldn't be happier to be living on the west coast. I enjoy my
job, and I have a few little projects going, but there are a lot of
things that it would just be better to have a partner in crime
for--travel, hiking, the performing arts, movies, and so on. I have
a sense of humor that is simultaneously healthy and sick, and try

I am irreverent, empathetic, and even-tempered
What I’m doing with my life
Former science nerd (chem), now developing software. Doing without
broadcast television. Trying to someday be able to buy a house.
Making things. Playing in the dust on Labor Day weekend.

enough? I guess what I'm trying to say is that I like an awful lot
of different musics, and if you've got an open mind there's bound
to be some overlap.
Foods: I'm a vegetarian. If you are too that's cool, but if you're
not that's cool too. I like Thai, Indian, Mediterranean, and
The six things I could never do without
My friends and family. Everything else is just stuff, even if some
of it's pretty neat.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How things are put together, and why. How I could put new things
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends, playing board games or watching movies.
