My self-summary
I like making people think. I spent a lot of my life playing with digital and mechanical toys until I found out that other people's brains make the best toys (brains can be more crunchy too).

I'm mostly self-wiping, occasionally arrogant, often thoughtful, and once-in-a-blue-moon, humble. I enjoy brilliant debate, and flip back and forth between being totally laid back and exacting. While the former is a true sentence, it tells you nothing other than I am not consistent. Insert usual statements indicating ironic dualities: I love to cook and can't be bothered to cook just for myself. I'm socially progressive and fiscally conservative. I care passionately about politics but am burnt out. I'm an atheist and a skeptic yet some people insist on calling me spiritual anyway. I like kids and am good at playing godfather (especially the part about making offers one can't refuse) but don't have them and don't want to create any.

I was born here. I've travelled all around the world, lived in various interesting places, and SF is the place I came back to. I love to travel for long periods of time, but don't want to own four homes to actually live in the different cultures and climates that I love.

I'm attracted to intelligence, dry piercing wit, sarcasm, imagination, sadism, and beauty. Please try to have at least eleven out of six of those in high quantity, with a bias towards being fucking brilliant.

You get bonus points if you're smarter than I think I am.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a dilettante and do whatever captures my interest (read: unemployed loser with no future and a short attention span).

In my spare time, I help people bootstrap their own economies in developing countries through some fun geeky stuff that creates locally developed businesses. I also help direct and finance grants to people and projects that provide relief to families that have been affected by HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa.

I have a penchant for equipment intensive recreational activities with a moderate degree of danger, rather than "real sports." If you're also good at fixing old British cars and/or British motorcycles, an airplane mechanic, or a cave or wreck diver, I want to have your baby.

I teach people how to answer questions about sex. I have a fetish for telling people that they're not pregnant, that their penis isn't too small, and how to do what they're going to do anyway while reducing the harm they cause. San Francisco Sex Information, provides a volunteering outlet for me so I don't have to yell at people from a soap box on the corner of 16th and Mission.

I have helped built big art at that-thing-in-the-desert, and more recently I might have been the guy in khaki who talked you down from jumping off a forty foot geodesic dome while you were blazing on something fun you scored from a hairy guy with bad teeth. I am largely burnt out with respect to the event, but going up juplaya with good friends for a dip in frog pond still fills me with glee. I don't identify as a burner, it's just one week in a year.

In my downtime, I try to make a dent in the huge stack of books in my "to-read" pile, and write free software.
I’m really good at
Pulling hair, in just the right way.
The first things people usually notice about me
Why is this guy pulling my hair, in just the right way?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The photographers that most inspire and influence me are James Nachtway, Sebastio Salgado, Robert Frank, Mona Kuhn, Robert Maplethorpe, Catherine Opie, Cindy Sherman, Helmut Newton, and Charles Gatewood.

You already will have a reasonable guess at what I like, listen to, read, and eat because it's in the ten other profiles from the same modern cool nerdy guys. That stuff. Exotic, indie, action-packed, introspective, with a touch of occasional romance and nostalgia. That's just the food. Don't get me started on Nabakov.

Here are some hopefully unique highlights of my favorite books and movies:
• a first edition of Principia Mathematica (there is a story here)
Stand on Zanzibar and The Shockwave Rider
Closet Land, with Alan Rickman
50 Shades of Gray

(note: one of the selections above is a lie)

Read my journal if you really have to know.
The six things I could never do without
• a secret volcanic lair
• ...with a monorail
• ...and henchwomen in futuristic space-age silver outfits
• ...and sharks
• ...with frickin' laser beams
• and a worthy arch-nemesis
• and finally, adding seven items to lists of six
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to express myself using a $10 camera with a plastic lens.

What fun project to tackle next, now that I've finished remodeling my 135 year old house.
On a typical Friday night I am
...out to a good dinner, hanging with friends, dazzling each other with scintillating conversation.

or my evil lair, the one that has sharks with frickin' laser beams, explaining my secret plans for world domination to my arch-nemeses before placing them in an easily escapable situation involving an overly elaborate and exotic death.

Update: Now that I've made you "yearn" for me with my witty irreverence and rakish devil-may-care attitude, I will crush all of your hopes and aspirations by pointing out that I am not on the market. Feel free to write to me and tell me I'm an asshole for leading you down such a seductive path without giving you a happy ending and a free egg roll.

Well, actually, coffee or drinks and an egg roll are available to interesting conversationalists.
