Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Displaced Oregonian, enjoying the benefits of California without
ever quite getting used to the damn heat. This city kinda fits me,
anyways - I'm into DIY
, I'm a hopeless foodie, I don't own a
car, and I was raised by ex-hippies
there you are.
I generally spend a lot of my time learning new things, thinking
about design, and generally fulfilling my destiny as a San
Franciscan Renaissance Man - dancing, sailing, baking, reading,
brunching and so on. Of late, I dance. A lot. Mostly swing.
Oh - I don't really take many things seriously, except for
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Short-term: Visualizing data, lindy
, perfecting mochi and dango.
Long-term: Taking pictures, sailing
like it's 18991929
, building a bicycle, smoking my own
bacon, digging up potatoes in my backyard, dreaming of grad school,
traveling, avocating, vocating.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Pretty much anything food related. Cooking, baking, jamming, you
name it, I can make it delicious.
Climbing things - rocks, trees, buildings, dinosaurs.
Learning new dances. Picking up new skills.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
How should I know? I've known myself since I was THIS TALL. So,
yeah, kinda wasn't paying attention back then.
Probably my Challah
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Iain (M.) Banks
, Neil Gaiman
, China Mieville
, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
, P.G. Wodehouse
so forth. Also The Last
of the Really Great Whangdoodles
. I have a hard time
remembering everything I should put here. I read a lot.
Movies: Trickier. Generally, if it doesn't take itself seriously,
that's a plus, if it has Colm Meaney in it, that's a plus, but I'm
kinda scattered. My top movies: MirrorMask
, Janji Joni
, Shaolin Soccer
, Three and Out
, The Boys
from County Clare
, Only Yesterday
, Kings of Summer
Girl Who Leapt Through Time
, Key of Life
, Sound of Noise
, Troll Hunter
. I binge
movies at the International Film Festival.
TV: 90's British television shows (especially if Stephen Fry
is in it), anything
touched, Adventure Time
, Babylon 5
, The West Wing
Music: Oh, that's easy. I like everything, except I only like half
of it. Probably the half you don't like, and I mean that in a
totally non-hipster way. Seriously, even hipsters won't listen to
my music. They're all, 'Oh, I don't want to listen to your French
Celtic Hip-Hop, silly man!', and I'm all, 'oh, that's cool, I have
the sound track to The Neverhood, it's like Klezmer, only with more
triangle', and then they unplug my ipod.
Food: I'll try anything twice.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A dining room
A pair of pliers
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whatever I happen to be learning how to do at the time. Of late -
scavenging motors from bread machines, dimming lights with arduino,
swing dancing, sailing, how to keep plants alive.
Aesthetics, design, and how to live well.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I can neither confirm nor deny the existence of a typical Friday
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Stuffing sausages is an extremely satisfying feeling.
