Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a product manager at a huge software company as my day job -
but my heart is really more in my photography
and digital image
. I've had pieces in a few art shows
, and I'm actively working on
a lot of new stuff.
I read a lot, a mix of SF/F
, other fiction
hobby - although a number of people have told me I should give up
my day job and take up massage full time.
I've been polyamorous
for many years, and was
one of the founders of the Montreal Poly
group in 2001. I've been with my
'primary' since 1995, and we had a daughter together in mid-2007.
We live with my primary's OSO, who is taking an active parenting
role with our daughter. I can highly recommend the 3 parents to 1
I don't expect anyone I'm seeing to take an active role in my
daughter's life - in fact, it would have to be a very serious
relationship before I'd consider that.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm passionate about my photography and image creation - I'd love
to be able to make it my primary source of income, but I think I've

lot, so I'm not in *that* big a rush.

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My photography and artwork tends to get a lot of compliments.
I've had a lot of people be quite effusive about how good I am at
massage. I've contemplated getting a certificate and starting to
practice --- but I actually quite enjoy it, and I'm afraid that I
wouldn't enjoy it as much if I had to do it professionally.
I've had a number of people tell me I've very good at throwing
parties, and bringing together a group of interesting and
I'm a pretty good cook - I like cooking, and tend to produce pretty
good food pretty consistently.
I'm also pretty good at making (and drinking) tea - I have a huge
collection of teas - black, green, white, oolong, herbal,
On a more ephemeral level, I'm quite good at getting my head around
complex concepts, and figuring out when there is an 'impedance
mis-match' between people in a discussion (when people think they
are talking about the same thing, but aren't actually)
