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.
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.

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.
