Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a recent transplant to San Francisco from Sydney, Australia. I
am 100% in love with the city.
I make things, all the time. A weekend spent writing a game or
building a clock is the perfect weekend. I like coffee, not for the
caffeine but for the ritual of holding a hot mug in my hands,
reading a book or the internet, and thinking about the world.
I'm both introverted and extroverted. I don't party much, but when
I do I like to be in the thick of it, talking to everyone or
dancing like an idiot. I like to overhear a conversation my friends
are having, wait for just the right moment and interject with the
perfect dumb joke.
I'm nonmonogamous and in a committed long-term relationship. Let me
know if you want to meet my partner (hint: you do! She's great.)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I used to think I wanted to make game design my life, but there was
a conflicting desire to "be important", to change the world and
make it a better place. And I don't feel like making games is the
best way to do that, so game design is now a hobby and an obsession
rather than a career option.
To that end, I'm now working at a small biotech startup that's
hoping to change the way laboratory work gets done in biology, and
make it possible to do drug discovery or genetics research from
your laptop in a cafe. Even if the startup doesn't work out, I
think the idea is interesting enough that it deserves a shot.
I'm looking around for a laid-back circus school to join in the bay
area so I can keep learning silks and trapeze. I'd love to find
myself somewhere to play on a German wheel, too.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Once, my phone ran out of battery while I was driving in the next
suburb over from the place I grew up in and lived for 15 years. I
had to flag down a taxi and ask directions.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Cellular automata, the space between atoms, the space in the sky,
humanity, transhumanism, post-scarcity, the future, etymology,
polyamory, cooking, code.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You'd like to have coffee, talk about how politics is game design
or how global utilitarian ethics is really a problem of information
transfer, visit a bookshop, wander around the city for an afternoon
and top the evening with a sexy night in.
Or if you think you can beat me at Letterpress.
