My self-summary
I'm basically a nerd who doesn't do a lot of nerdy things. I swore off video games and I never got in to D&D or Magic the Gathering. I have however seen every episode of Dr. Who. That has to count for something right?mI have a nearly Vulcan sense of logic although I'll never buy in to Vulcan mating rituals. Don't get my Star Trek reference? Fine, I'm a robot with skin. Think terminator except I kill with cuddles. I have an off beat and rather dark sense of humor, little to no sense of tact, and a strong penchant for honesty.

I'm looking for someone who will skip the small talk, debate without arguing, and challenge me intellectually.

I seek new perspectives and enjoy providing new perspectives to others. I've been called an optimist, pessimist, realist, idealist, nihilist, and the most frustratingly level headed person in the world. All of these are true. All of these are false.

I believe time is life's most precious resource and I have no desire to waste mine or yours by pretending to be someone I'm not.

I encourage my friends, family, lovers, and sometimes people I just met to think about their goals, pursue their dreams, and question their perception of reality.

For the record I'm in an open relationship. That just seems like the kind of thing most people would want to know about when considering someone as potential dating material so there it is.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm getting used to yet another fun life transition. I just moved to Austin and as is typical for me I am not spending much time here. I work as a lighting technician for concerts so I'm on the road a lot. My house often seems like a furnished storage unit with roommates.

I spend about as much time in Nashville as I do in Austin. I lived there for two years and still work there regularly.

I enjoy starting/continuing/dreaming about projects. So far I'm collaborating on a comic, playing music, starting a business, working/traveling all over North America, and when I have the odd spare moment I might just open up my old calculus books to ensure that I haven't forgotten it all. Rattling around in my head are two graphic novels, a novel, numerous parodies of song and cinema and designs for various mechanical wonders.
I’m really good at
Over analyzing, asking questions, cooking without a recipe, brewing beer, massages, finding humor in any situation, abstract problem solving, absorbing information fast and forgetting it even faster.
The first things people usually notice about me
Red hair and sarcasm.

The six things I could never do without
Conversation, good beer, a problem to solve, a problem that seems impossible to solve, music, and occasional silence
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Mostly abstract things like...

Saving the world. The four universal languages are math, music, laughter, and sex. When I've finished my world saving mathematical formula for a precisely timed and coordinated singing laughing orgy I'll be sure to post it here.

And time travel. I've thought it through rather thoroughly and determined that the only socially responsible thing to do with a time machine is to go back and record all the missing episodes of Dr. Who.

Isms. There are so many isms. So many different ways to apply your choice ism. And yet when put in to practice every ism seems to have the same disasterious outcome.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working of course. Thankfully my job involves attending lots of concerts.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If the world ever gets pulled in to a black hole I probably helped.
