My self-summary
I will try just about anything once. I will make a pun about it while I do it. I'd rather do it with someone else than alone, especially if they will laugh at my pun. I will probably try it more than once if it involves food.
What I’m doing with my life
Making coffee. So much coffee. ALL THE COFFEE. I've bounced around a number of different shops, and I currently work at a chain you've heard of. Dreaming about opening my own place, but right now focusing on my craft. Sometimes wishing that instead of trying to make college work for me, I'd discovered a trade school for baristas at around age 18.

Trying to be a great partner to chloroflexi. She's super rad, wicked smart, and yes, fully on board with the open thing. Feel free to say hi if you think you two would get along. (Yes, that's me being decorated with flowers in her profile pic.)

In my spare time I play lots of games: board, card, roleplaying, video. I'm trying to create a card game myself, but I think I need a project manager. They have those for single-person teams, right?

And I bike. I bike all the fuck over. To work, to run errands, to wherever. I once rode all the way from Mountain View to North Beach in SF just to see if I could. Major bonus points if you wanna go biking with me.
I’m really good at
Explaining things. Reading people. Reaching high places. Debate/discussion. Keeping the beat. Editing. Eating dessert. Cooking. Making cappuccinos.
The first things people usually notice about me
Height, sense of humor, glasses, overpowering intellect, devastatingly good looks. Sarcasm.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Podcasts really needs to be on this list of lists, yeah?

The six things I could never do without
In no particular order:
-Sounds
-People
-Games
-The Internet
-Delicious Food
-Words
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-Systems and how everything is a part of one
-People and how they are included in the previous item, and what that means for humanity
-Food. Yum.
-Games. Drawin' cards, rollin' dice. Statistics!
-Why I can't have a 7th item on the above list
-Commas and why people use so goddamn many of them
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with my partner, playing some games, watching a movie, making dinner. Maybe all of the above... SIMULTANEOUSLY.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I lived, very briefly, in Rapid City, SD. If you ask me nicely I might tell you why.
You should message me if
Here's where I lay it out, I guess?

I've already mentioned that I have a loving, committed partner, so what does that mean I'm looking for? I'm definitely *not* looking for just a piece on the side, nor The One to settle down with.

I want to have new relationships, new adventures, new perspectives. And yes, new physical intimacy, but we have to be able to talk, to click.
