My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I moved to the bay area after a small stint in Sacramento. I’ve lived in the LA area, the high desert of the Mojave, Portland, and all over Wisconsin. I’ve been on the West Coast since 2004. Life is pretty silly and I try to ride with it as best as I can, and just laugh and appreciate where I am. Little things mean a lot to me: scents, small gestures of individuals. I can be transfixed by a sides ways look or the way the light paints over some aspect of a person or a place; or if a person has a certain scent. I also think that conversation is a valid way to explore the world in addition to taking naps. I do have a creative side( i play guitar poorly, write, paint, people watch, love photography - my flickr:

But for my job I work with databases and computer programs (I fell into this after a work injury) as well as maps to augment scientists' efforts so I also have a fairly developed logical side, too.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well, I don't climb rocks. Which seems to be odd behavior for the bay area. But I do work for a non-profit In Oakland focused on rehabilitating California Coastal Streams; I get to walk to work and I also get to run around creeks in Redwood forests at least once a week doing field work. It is a change from my old career as an archaeologist, but a welcome one. Some things I do in my spare time:

- I’m working on a photo project in which I am photographing a masquerade mask 100 different ways. I find it to be a very fascinating project; I am forced to search for different perspectives for the same thing
- I play guitar very poorly, but i still enjoy it.
- I volunteer some spare time to help Orca whale researchers model the impact of human activity on pod behavior.
- I write as a hobby as well. Even had an item or two published.
- i am currently trying to build a radio telescope so i can listen to Io interact with Jupiter. I am told (and have literally heard) that it sounds like ocean waves. How cool is that? Being able to listen to a cosmic waves lap on earth's shores with an instrument you got from NASA and built yourself?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Depending on how long they've been in California, they notice I'm not from around here fairly quickly. Also, I tend to be noticed in crowds or in individual interactions. UPS/Fed Ex people always remember me after 1 meeting, bar tenders, waitresses... obviously something about me sticks in people's minds (or craw if they don't like me).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

This is a big subject. Let's just say i am very eclectic in my tastes.
Reading wise i am big on modern poetry & short stories. I also like to read ancient greek & roman classics (Comes from my classical/archaeology background). I also just started getting back into egyptology, the mythology and the archaeology - such a crazy old civilization. Author wise: Margret Atwood, Anne Sexton, Leonard Cohen, Charles Bukowski, Catullus, Sappho, A E Stallings, others. I also read scientific non fiction, usually physics- astronomy related.

i know this isn't a category, but i have a soft spot for bettie page - love that 50's rock a billy vintage look

music: Neko Case, Regina Spektor, Rob Zombie, Fiona Apple, Everclear, Emmylou Harris, Leonard Cohen, Peggy Lee, Harry Chapin, Shawn Colvin, izzy Stradlin, and many more. I really am eclectic.

Movies/tv: Dark Crystal, Amelie, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Ground Hog's Day, LA Story, Mars needs women, Arrested Development, Harold & Maude,Steve Martin films, Wes Anderson films, What's eating Gilbert Grape, , & i enjoy documentaries. I also admit i liked star trek next generation. I've been on a kick lately with campy/retro movies, including old school horror movies
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I wonder what goes on in people's heads.
When i am gone i wonder if my cats are having a party with out me.
I also think about space and quantum physics - that stuff is really mind blowing.

It is estimated the solar system looped around our galaxy over 20 times in the past 4.3 billion years. That shit cray.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I read poetry in the bathtub. And i suck at texting.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are goofy/quirky. I have a soft spot for that type of woman.
Or if you are just comfortable with who you are.
You want to meet up in real life, preferably sooner rather than later.
Also, you aren't allergic to cats.
