Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love tea, coffee, nature. I'm nerdy, but also about non-tech
things: teaching, perspective, compassion, knowledge. Everything is
I am dissatisfied with society and doing my best to help.
Unfortunately, this site makes me feel dumb. I'm not here for sex.
Maybe you feel the same.
I honestly don't give a fuck about the oxford comma. I can't
believe that has become a meme.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Stuff. Being human. I program, write, make art. If you're creative
or set yourself apart from social norms, we'll probably get
Part of the week I dedicate to software development, part to
freelance, and sometimes a little bit to game development. Right
now I'm making a painting app. Feel free to judge, but programming
is like knitting and I'm fucking broke / self taught.
I often read alone in coffee shops. I don't socialize much.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Not finishing books because I'm too busy catching up on twitter.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
hip-hop, post-rock, cat power, metric, kate bush, (...)
Cooking I love, but tend to keep my own meals simple. I'm not
picky, either. Spicy's good, veggies are good.
I like movies that show the inner lives of people. Weird mind game
movies with romance threads are generally my favorite. I also like
movies with family themes or spooky psychological horror.
Some fiction: Parable of the Sower, The Left Hand of Darkness, The
Kite Runner, Kiss of the Spider Woman
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
steeped leaves, solitude,
snug laces and cat claws
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Social context and the strategy of communicating ideas through art.
Helpful things like tools and discourse following established
instinct (ie, UX). How to be wealthy without having anything.
I like to think about brains, the universe, and the responsibility
of humanity as a conscious force, but don't know enough about
neuroscience to make any claims that aren't totally new-agey,
Often in dream I hang out with my cat that disappeared.
I personally dream of an aware society free of archaic prejudice of
any kind. (incl. ableism, sexism, classism, racism)
Sometimes I think about how dealing with the rottenness of society
threatens to infect and rot you out right back. I think a lot about
what motivates both cruelty and fear. I try to let go of my
distrust, but I have been shown repeatedly that it is worth it to
assume the worst.
It's not that I live in fear... I actually think people have a lot
of good in them. But I have found the 'nice', 'normal' people of
Seattle to be very timid, passive, fearful, and alarmingly
overpolite. I just don't care for that sort of self-serving
I probably belong on another planet.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

- yoga and meditation
- music and making out
- coffee and conversation
- bad dates with okay people
