Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Despite having some things figured out about myself and about life,
I know that there is so much more out there to learn and
experience. I love meeting new people and sharing new experiences,
stretching my brain, challenging and being challenged by
I am polyamorous and looking for people at least comfortable with
the idea. Love is one of the most amazing things humans have to
share and there is no reason to prevent yourself from finding it
anywhere and everywhere you can. I am in a long term relationship
I'm looking for people who are a good connection for us both, but
one step at a time :)
I am inquisitive, thoughtful, and passionate.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Work shouldn't be at the top of this list, but at 40+ hrs a week it
takes up an unfortunate percentage of my time. I am currently
building espresso machines for a small company in Seattle. Building
things can be therapeutic at least.
I volunteer, I play, I teach, and learn whenever possible. I try to
stay contented and persevere through the sometimes monotonous,
sometimes amazing details of life, through wonderful anticipation
of bigger things to come.
I am slowly trying to get off the grid. I find that sustainable
living is incredibly desirable and I am in non-stop battle to
downsize, and purge unnecessary things from my life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Creative problem solving. Robots :) I am good at taking 10 times as
long at a task the first time trying to figure out how best to do
it in the future, even if I will never have to do it again. I would
like to think that I have a good read on people, but as an
introvert I guess I don't always get to test out those theories.
That being said, being wallflower from time to time really helps
your powers of observation.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am really not sure about this one. I have found that I can give
people the wrong first impressions sometimes. I am often pretty
quiet and reserved until I get to know people. I am never quite
sure how much of the crazy going on in my head other people want to
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - 1984, Stranger in a Strange Land, Any Dr. Seuss, Shell
Silverstein, The Way Things work, Fierce Invalids Home From Hot
Climates, and newly Sex at Dawn. Just read the Foundation Trilogy
and I am moving on to Brin's uplift series - good stuff. The Future
of the Mind is what I am halfway through right now. I can't get
enough about new brain science, futurology, AI, the singularity,
Movies - Amelie, Spirited Away, Me and You and Everyone We Know,
the 5th Element, Brazil, Léon: The Professional. As Aziz Ansari
said to all those who haven't seen the Dark Knight, "What the fuck
is wrong with you!"
Music - Varies a lot, but Vampire Weekend is my latest obsession.
Metric, Smashing Pumpkins, They Might Be Giants, Presidents, Regina
Spektor, Kimya Dawson, Magnetic Fields are defaults. I listen to a
lot of stuff though. KEXP treats me well. Current obsessions: Major
Lazer, Galimatias, and Nujabes.
Food - I am veg, but I like all types of foods with some specific
exceptions. French fries are my weakness, but a salad always sounds
good. I'll throw beer in this category as well. Beer is good. It is
hard to beat a good yellow curry.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The people I am close to, nearby bodies of water, the internet (i
guess information in general), music, being creative and stretching
the brain. A lazy morning curled up under the covers falling back
asleep and dreaming when I have the luxury.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
People and my interactions with them. Also I am an organizer, and I
am fascinated with information sciences. I am fascinated by
communication and how broken it can be. People have all had such
amazing and intense experiences in their lives, but for some reason
we haven't figured out how to use this commonality to break down
the walls people use to distance themselves from each other.
I also think a lot about where we are all going as a civilization.
How the technological singularity will impact our lives and whether
innovation and science will solve all the horrible things we are
doing to the environment before we destroy ourselves. I think a lot
about the discourse of the city versus the idealism of living out
in the woods somewhere either off the grid or at least in a
sustainable way. I think about the lyrics to Imagine. I contemplate
whether greed and jealousy is curable.
Ping Pong is also one of the greatest games on the planet! My work
just got a table and to say I am addicted is an understatement. If
you play and would like to find a bar to go have a game, I am in.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Getting drinks or playing board games, maybe staying in for some
dinner and movies. If things go well, perhaps some dancing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes I can be a big kid... don't take me to a toy store unless
you want to stay a while or to a beach unless you don't mind me
building a sand castle :) I have a habit of collecting toys like
legos, blocks etc.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you want to talk, match wits, or get a cup of coffee sometime. I
would love to hear about what you are passionate about and I would
be more than happy to tell you the same.
