My self-summary
I'm a horror writer, a feminist, a polyamorist, a radical centrist, and an inter-denominational heretic. I'm also as GGG as I can be.

I was raised in Norway, born in New Jersey, spent my adolescence and young adulthood in Albuquerque and now live in Boulder. When people ask me where I'm "from," I usually settle on "Earth."
What I’m doing with my life
I'm about to earn my MA and then I plan on earning that most lucrative of degrees, a MFA in Creative Writing.

I write surrealistic horror stories and literary/film reviews. If you are curious, I can direct you to places where you can read my work. My fiction has been published once, in the magazine Weird Tales.
I’m really good at
Conversation, making people laugh, voicing the unspeakable, devil's advocacy, listening, writing (I'd like to think), reading, list-making.
The first things people usually notice about me
I think people notice my size (vertically speaking), my bald head, my friendly smile, and the horde of gremlins which accompany me everywhere I wander.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Books, companionship & love & sex, conversation, cats, my imagination, hope.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Literature (mine as well as that of others). Philosophy, film, mysticism. The Buddha-nature. Nightmares and dreamscapes. Sexuality, relationships and gender issues. The future of our species (I'm kind of an optimist). Worst-case scenarios (I've got a pessimistic side as well).
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading, watching my Netflix, sometimes a party or a show. Writing. I try to sit zazen every night, or at least every other night. I also love taking long walks down Colorado's magnificent seaside beaches.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I come across a bit intimidating to some (not an aim of mine), but I'm secretly pretty cuddly.

I have a partner who lives in Albuquerque with her boyfriend. We are honest about and supportive of one another's relationships and everything is out in the open. I know there are guys who lie about being in an open relationship. Fuck those guys.
You should message me if
Write me if you enjoy talking, creating, going out to eat, staying in with someone warm (I've been called a Human Space Heater), exploring and expanding your horizons, or plotting to overthrow the current paradigm.

Write me if you are either familiar and comfortable with polyamory or if you feel you could enjoy a relationship of this sort. My relationships tend to be autonomous (I'm not looking for a third to complete a threesome), but they are filled with communication.
