In terms of who I am . . .
I'm an honest person though I try to balance honesty with compassion. Sometimes people just use "being honest" as an excuse to be mean. I prefer compassion, not passivity, to assholish honesty so I strive to be understanding, tolerant and then honest (in that order). In that light, I spend a lot of time practicing and studying techniques of meditation.
After spending quite a bit of time on this pursuit, I determined that in addition to working on disciplining my mind, I also needed to start training my body. To this end, I started about a year ago doing physical training in a combat related art. It has helped inform my meditation and my meditation helps to inform my martial training.
On to the more general stuff. I love my family and friends but can sometimes be a bit too introverted. I've lived in Seattle since about 2007. I love hiphop music, esp. anything influenced by J Dilla's work and I pride myself on supporting the local hiphop scene here in Seattle. I also love to meet new people who challenge my comfort zone as I really love being uncomfortable in a silly and embarrassing way. Self-deprecating humor is the best type of humor.
Essentially, I'm an explorer, a sound-scientist, philosopher, Buddhist and martial artist.
As a side note, I'm a rather sexual person and love to discover new aspects of my sexuality. Definitely enjoy a bit of kink in my life and I'm not ashamed to say so.
