My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
- a polyamorous programmer with a penchant for plain pizza

- a hairy, smiling dude who gets really excited about fandom and feminism

- a kinky, submissive, powerlifting foil-and-épée-fencer

- the only gamer guaranteed to livestream himself playing League of Legends in a rainbow bathrobe and hair-towel at least once a month

- a total softie who cries at movies (LOOKING AT YOU, PIXAR'S UP) and would rather empathize than criticize

- a Manhattan-born Long Islander who journeyed far and wide across the continental United States before deciding that, yes, New York City really is the coolest, and late 2014 was the time to find a place in Brooklyn

ENFP if you're into that kind of thing (just because it's scientifically worthless doesn't mean it's no fun to think about!).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I fence, sketch, weightlift (praise be to Brodin; wheymen), and try to learn a new skill as often as possible. (Previously: woodworking. Next up: Improv comedy!)

For my day job, I design and build stuff on the internet.

I also try not to post about Homestuck on my tumblr (sleepysamurai), and generally succeed.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I spent all of 2014 teaching programming to adults, and one of my students described me via feedback form as "actually a wizard." (It's all in the hair.)

The hardest thing about learning is emotional, not intellectual. I love teaching because I get to be my students' cheerleader, who's always there to give them the confidence to keep trying!

Also really good at: making friends with strangers, backrubs, parallel parking.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Video Games
Dark Souls is my favorite game because it's actually an allegory about the strength of the human spirit. Final Fantasy 3/6 has the best soundtrack, and I'm always looking for an excuse to play Minecraft & Terraria again.

Books
I am a practitioner of pathological tsundoku, but R. Scott Bakker's The Darkness That Comes Before and Marc Ian Barasch's Field Notes on the Compassionate Life grabbed me until I had absorbed every single page.

Television
Steven Universe and the usuals (Orange is the New Black, Sense8, etc.)

Movies
When I'm bummed out, I watch Kiki's Delivery Service and feel better again. But to be real, Groundhog Day is my spirit movie. Pacific Rim might be the runner-up.

Music
BT, KMFDM, World/Inferno Friendship Society, Zero 7 , E.S. Posthumus, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, The Album Leaf, most of the Homestuck soundtrack, Yoko Kanno, Carbon Leaf, Pendulum, Stratovarius, The Glitch Mob, Rilo Kiley, They Might Be Giants, SO many musicals (especially Wicked), Vienna Teng, MURS.

Tabletop Games
Toss-up between Netrunner (the card game) and Go (the ancient Chinese strategy game), but sometimes when I'm feeling particularly masochistic I'll try to get a bunch of friends together to play Twilight Imperium.

Food
Plain New York pizza, and curry. Just give me all the curries.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The smell of rain on earth (which Tumblr recently taught me is called "petrichor")

My Google Calendar

Cats and their jellybean toes and floof and ugh

Thunderstorms and their soothing distant rumbling

Friends who can oscillate between dick & fart jokes and unironic conversations about morality, art, metaphysics, and social justice.

Photoshop
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Code (language design and data structures and HTTP request headers and...)

How to convince people that being nice to each other is the bomb.

How to become the best version of myself

Butts
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
... you love concerts, drink-'n-draws, burlesque shows, and open mic nights

... you're at least a little bit genderqueer, or generally just get on well with the LGBTQ* crowd

... you like big burly dudes with big beautiful submissive streaks

... you're not usually into straight dudes (this one seems ridiculous, but it's a pattern in my partners!)

... you hate crowded bars where you need a megaphone and smoke signals to communicate

... you think guys with foot fetishes can be cute (POSSIBLY EVEN SEXY) if we don't get all fuckin' weird about it in the first couple of messages (seriously fellas, learn to be a little patient, will ya?)

... you wanna go on a sketch walk through the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and discuss which Winchester is hotter (hint: it's Dean)

I prefer not to use terms like "primary" and "secondary" to classify my relationships, but I am open to what many would describe as a "primary" relationship.
