What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been self employed in my vocation as an inventor since 2007.

...nurturing plants back to life and befriending every animal I
...teaching what I know to other people and learning what they have
to teach me.
...being supportive, understanding, subversive, and silly.
...experimenting with all of the different ways to make a delicious

...fixing electro-mechanical stuff, wiring AV equipment, computers
and the like
...Tuvan throat singing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My "mad scientist hair" is obvious, and I am told I have very
intense eye-contact. Conversationally while at first I may be a

talkative and expressive (especially if caffeine is involved :-)

What my cat is thinking about. Or what she's trying to tell
The common occurrence of coming up with a brilliant idea, only to
do some research and find that it's either theoretically possible,

Cackling to myself for avoiding a 9-5, M-F existence and reveling

with friends, researching, flirting. My favorite activity- skulking
around the east bay on lengthy, stealthy bike rides.
