My self-summary
**I travel often and use this site as a way to make friends ahead of time, so as to get to the interesting stuff more quickly. If you live outside of Austin and are confused about why I was browsing your profile, that's probably the reason.**

Moderately tall, frequently dark, and occasionally handsome, I'm (somewhat) fantastic if you don't mind qualifiers, with rocket scientist tendencies that long ago gave way to artistic ambitions (making art does somewhat less damage than making weapons). I'm single, healthy, sane and sort of normal looking on the outside, but wickedly creative on the inside, or at least nimble enough to feed myself and pay my rent with my skills and smarts. I prefer to be active, exploring trails, paddling the lake or swimming in the Springs when I'm not making something or helping someone else make something, or trying to keep said creations from blowing up or causing NORAD to raise the DEFCON threat level.

I'm adventurous and uber-inquisitive about the world around me, to the extent that I have been known to trek to the middle of nowhere in Death Valley to see places where the rocks move by themselves; jump onto a bus taking biologists into the Chernobyl exclusion zone; or take a three day side trip through Bosnia to the site of appearances by the Virgin Mary, despite not being Catholic, or even religious. I'm skeptical and agnostic, but intrigued by all that there is we don't know, awed by nature and the universe and complete humbled by my small place in them. For those who want to know, I generally score as INTP, with occasional forays into E and S.
What I’m doing with my life
Arranging photons into pleasing configurations ( for evidence and examples). Rescuing old theaters. Collaborating with artists and choreographers to make their work even better. Organizing art projects that last decades. Hacking ink jet printers to make photos that last centuries. Enjoying as many of the moments as I can.
I’m really good at
Finding and making images. Seeing in the dark. Creating interesting performance. Writing. Listening. Watching. Traveling. Guiding boats down rock-filled rivers. Falling off paddle boards. Swimming after lost paddle boards and kayaks. Explaining quantum physics and obscure mathematical theorems. Treading water. Driving cross-country. Building functional furniture. Being mistaken for native in foreign lands. Riding roller coasters. Frisbee and Disc Golf. Mastermind. Scrabble. Thumb-wrestling.

Things I'm still working on: Chess. Archery. Cello. Sticking to a workout schedule. Trimming my living space and my life down to just the important things, like an interestingly shaped Bonsai, except that the metaphor doesn't carry through to imply that I am artificially restricting my growth.

Things I suck at: Metaphor, apparently. (Joke. I'm fucking brilliant at metaphor.)
The first things people usually notice about me
Most predominantly, on first meeting, I get told that I have kind eyes. After people know me a while, it's my stealthy, dry humor. Sometimes though, it's too stealthy, and people who aren't perceptive enough don't even notice that I am hilarious. It's sort of a built in test of how interesting other people are. At least that's what I'm calling it.

Curiously, it has come to light that women are much more likely to find me attractive if they meet me when I'm working. If we meet in social situations, it takes longer (maybe years). Please note that from now on, all OKC first meetings will have to be while I am on the job.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
The next 4 days:

Lately: The physics and body mechanics of archery. I've become a little obsessed, and go to the range 3-4 days a week. Also, these last two weeks, how best to light cannibal monster puppets and jugglers (actually, I have extensive experience with both).

When not currently thinking about archery: Everything else. I am in love with and in awe of the world, and spend as much of my time as humanly possible seeing as much of it and learning as much about it as I can. Despite considering myself an optimist, I'm also becoming more and more convinced that we've passed the point of no return and are leaving nothing but a disastrous mess for future generations. I find it beautifully hilarious that bridal showers in Latvia include the washing of socks (there's a story, of course), and that there is a word, Mamihlapinatapai, that means, approximately, "a look shared by two people with each wishing that the other will initiate something that both desire but which neither one wants to start." How fantastic is it that there is a word for that?
On a typical Friday night I am
If I'm working, then I'm in a theater for a dance show or event, then drinks with friends afterwards, or maybe a few games of pool. If not, then probably a run around the lake, a swim in Barton Springs and then the socializing. Or maybe watching a friend's marching band or an art car derby... It could be anything really - I run with an eclectic crowd.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It's not the most private, but it's interesting: Turning 45 recently seems to have been a major shift on here. The messages and visits I'm getting suddenly skew much older than they did when I was 44.
I’m looking for

You should message me if

...are smart as hell with a smart-ass sense of humor, insatiably curious, and in a life that's a bit unconventional in one way or another (don't be bored).

...enjoy spontaneity whether or not it's well planned.

...are in the habit of taking care of yourself, eating reasonably healthy and staying active.

...are strong of mind and will, or have ever been told that you were intimidating, outspoken or opinionated.

... are ready to teach, learn, and explore together.

...know where your passport and your towel are at all times.

... Want a friend with whom to make art, exchange favorite songs, model for photos, or ruminate on the all time greatest hits of ice cream flavors.

A love of moving water, radical politics or guys who shave their heads are worth bonus points. Formidable kissing, flirting and thumb wrestling skills automatically get you past the bouncer and in the door. Match my banter, or beat me in a game of pool or scrabble and I'll likely buy you flowers and make you mix-CDs.
