My self-summary
My life currently revolves around friends, craft beer, movies, cars, music and computers. I'm looking to add, not replace.

I probably already like your dog.
What I’m doing with my life
I probably already like your dog.

I write software for museum exhibits. In college, I thought I'd be a photographer, and the best job I've ever had was working as one for the National Air and Space Museum for a summer. I've worked for Big Pharma, Big Med, Big and Small Ed(ucation), and now I'm back to the startup grind.

I'm very smart and I'm very sarcastic, and I cycle between patient maturity, studied indifference, cartoonish indignation, and boyish overenthusiasm. This may not make me sound like much of a catch, but you will have to trust me. My friends are similar, but they are all even smarter than I am, so the conversations are rapid-fire and wide-ranging festivals of hilarity. I distrust people who don't curse, and rather than thinking the glass is half-empty OR half-full, I tend to wonder why someone chose a glass that's too big. I have ridiculously strange and minutely detailed dreams (like, while I sleep, not while I'm wishing I were somewhere else; although that happens too).

I hate when I use "like" in a sentence like that.

I have a cabinet full of cameras and a fridge full of beer and film. I like arty porn, and porny art. The "beer" thing makes me sound like a meathead, but I'm not; backwards-hat assholes annoy me, and anything that comes in a 30-pack (besides condoms) is to be avoided. So, I am what a lot of people would call a beer snob.

I'm also a movie snob, a car snob, a politics snob, a grammar snob, and a brain snob. I don't go public with my opinions on all of these, and I don't even really know why I use the word "snob," except that maybe it's just the easiest one.

I rarely use the easiest word, usually preferring to use the right one. The pervasive inability of so many people to use your/you're, its/it's, effect/affect, discreet/discrete, and their/they're/there properly is an immediate turnoff. And "issue" is not a synonym for "problem." Also, haphazardly-placed apostrophes make my teeth itch. ("Grape's: $3.99/lb")

Seriously. What the fuck is your issue?

I'm suspicious of emoticons. Not EMOTIONS. EMOTICONS.

I'm a big fan of cars. This may seem strange, given my fondness for polar bears, and disgust for climate change deniers, but there it is. I have a small, fast one that I tinker with, and I autocross it when there's no snow on the ground. I walk and take public transit whenever possible, and I have a two mile commute, so my gasoline footprint still ends up being smaller than average. I watch a lot of motorsports on TV, though not NASCAR; other kinds, where they turn right as well as left, and speak languages like Italian, Finnish, and Spanish.

I like dark movies, and dark places, bourbon, and banter and weird television. I've lived in India for two (separate) years, but I don't travel as much as I'd like to anymore; that's probably because I think it's more fun to travel with someone, and I keep finding awesome things to do locally. No excuse, but still...

Music is very important, and I like everything that isn't klezmer or on the radio. I do not watch the Grammies, or know what's popular.

I just bought a guitar and am teaching myself L7 songs. And "White Wedding," and "Rumble" and "Roxanne."

My family is fairly small and spread out, but I'm close with most of them. Given the grandiosity of the rest of my writing, you'd think I'd have more to say about this. At the moment, I do not.

Long ago, I gave up striving for minimalism; my other interests and apartment aren't really compatible with a pristine coffee table ready for Architectural Digest shoots. I have had cases of beer stacked in my living room, and sets of springs, shock absorbers and brake calipers in my hallway. So, my life is clean, but can be cluttered when I'm single.

I enjoy sports, but my loyalties lie, forever, with Philadelphia teams. I'm a fan of the game(s) more than I am a fan of local teams. So I'll watch the home 9 with you, but I might not pull strongly for them.

I spent too much time on that last paragraph. I like sports. I watch them sometimes. There.

The 500-some questions I've answered make me sound like "some kinda prevert" (as Col. 'Bat' Guano might say). That impression also lacks nuance, but sex is really important. The range of relationships I'm looking for is wide at the moment, because I'm interested in all of them for now, but I'm not opposed something long-term; I just prefer not to go into anything looking for that specifically.
I’m really good at
Spelling, driving, communicating, movie-critiquing, listening, problem-solving, staying up late. And frisbee. And air drums.
The first things people usually notice about me
Should you deign to meet me, you can feel free to tell me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I used to have a giant list of things here that made me seem complex, diverse and edgy. And wordy. But that got a little crazy.

So, fuck it. Here's a handful.

Hitchcock, Beethoven, Kubrick, Led Zeppelin, Arrested Development, Motörhead, The Wire, Nicholson Baker, anythingbutNASCAR, Philip K. Dick, Pavement, Amjad Ali Khan, George Saunders, Frontline, Talking Heads. Feel free to ask me about the rest. Or extrapolate. Or draw an angular (yet hazy) mental picture based on very little, but very descriptive, data. Or ignore it entirely and tell me about something new.

I'm currently reading Hugh Howey's "Wool" and a textbook called "The Racing And High Performance Tire." I am not kidding.

Sometimes, I enjoy eating. Indian, pizza, Chinese, pesto, bbq. And coffee, which IS TOO a food. Peanut butter.

Louis CK and George Carlin are geniuses. Hear me on this.
The six things I could never do without
Music, sex, hope, art, a clutch pedal, and DEET.

It would be hard for me to get by without a computer of some sort.

Except for those stretches where I go without sex, and at some point, we'll all be shifting gears with paddles on the steering wheel, or cars will be electric and we won't have to; mosquitoes will be genetically engineered not to bite humans, music will beamed directly into our heads and we'll get our hope from a pill.

Each of these will diminish us, but we'll survive.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whiskey. Summer. Boobs. My friend's lake house. The desert. Apex predators. Thunderstorms. How the federal gas tax is too low.
On a typical Friday night I am
atypical. Hopefully.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Dewpoint is my favorite weather datum.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 27–45
  • Near me
  • For long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
you want to go places and take pictures; you haven't played in a kickball league since you were 12; you're not 12; you laugh out loud a lot, but almost never "lol"; you like beer and rolls in the hay; you had to think about whether "rolls in the hay" means "rolling naked and having sex with someone" or whether it means "sitting in a barn having bread and butter"; any of the above bloviating interested you in the least.
