Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Here's the deal: I have a partner. She's wonderful. We're
non-monogamous, but not always actively searching. There's always
room for more awesome people in my life, whether it's as a friend,
a lover, a penpal, or something that defies words.
So about me:
Born and raised in the Bay Area, I have taken time away for school
in Santa Cruz (if you even count that as not Bay Area) and a year
in Michigan. I have found that this is definitely the place for me.
It is home.
As a result of my very Bay Area/California upbringing, I've checked
my privilege, it turns out it was in this knapsack the whole
time... I try to be mindful in everything that I do, without
spiraling into navel-gazing analysis paralysis. Things need to get
done, after all.
I am a morning person for no reason other than the sun always
manages to wake me up. Living a life where I never have to set an
alarm clock is really rather wonderful. Morning is just such a
lovely time to drink some coffee and gather myself before heading
off into the world.
Speaking of coffee, I love coffee. And tea is pretty amazing,
especially pu-erh. And while we're at it, whiskey, I think you
should join this party too.
I've gone to Burning Man a number of times, and labored in the hot,
hot sun (and cold, cold night) to make a bunch of big art happen.
It's been grand. I don't think I'll be going back.
I have been told that I make people laugh, by way of humor.
Sometimes even on purpose! If you find anything in my profile
funny, you too will probably find me funny.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I spend lots of my time babysitting a bunch of computers. It's
pretty whatever. I'm excited for the bubble to burst so I can go do
something else with my life.
When not working, I find myself engaged with projects such as
brewing beer, working on the never-ending warehome project,
tinkering with some software, building a bicycle from all the
little parts, or tending to my little desktop garden of
On a personal level, I am learning to take good care of myself.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
In? Out? Relaxing? Exercising? Drinking? Working around the home?
Cooking an awesome dinner?
I'm not really sure which one is the typical one...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like Katy Perry in a totally un-ironic manner way more than I
should. Her music makes me feel happy. And that's something.
