My self-summary
A native of Boston, I love living in this city. I'm always looking to fill my calendar with fun and unique events. Everything from international pillowfight day and the midnight marathon bike ride to summer bonfires on the beach. I'm always looking for some new adventure, and if something exciting is happening in 15 minutes that I didn't hear about before, just let me get my jacket and go there right now.

I enjoy playing board games with my friends. We have been having board game night every Thursday for almost 5 straight years now and it is one of the best parts of the week. Mostly I'm talking about euro-games like Carcassonne, Race for the Galaxy, Power Grid, Pandemic, etc, but I'm never above a good game of Cards Against Humanity or Texas Hold 'Em. I also like the occasional pub trivia night, and I've been doing a lot of puzzlehunts lately. These are things like BAPHL or Mystery Hunt.

On the outdoors front, I like going sailing a lot in the summer and ice skating in the winter. I find both quite relaxing, but both are better with someone else. Also, biking (for fun, exercise, and transportation) and running. I've run a few relays across the width of Massachusetts and even the Boston Marathon as a relay (long story).
What I’m doing with my life
"Taking adults and turning them into kids, and taking kids and letting them save the world." That's my personal mission. What that means is that I build immersive themed attractions. I want to entertain, but in a way that really makes you feel like you're in another place, instead of just staring at a screen. Right now I'm doing this freelance. In the past I've had some amazing adventures working in Disney World, running graphics for rock concerts in Asia, programming playful fountains, putting video games in movie theaters, and installing interactive museum exhibits. Every new project is a new adventure, and I can't wait to see what the next one will be.
I’m really good at
Figuring things out, solving problems in unique ways, and remembering obscure information. I love any kind of challenge and I'm really good with puzzles. I like to tell stories but I'm bad at keeping them short.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my bright red hair, to be honest. Although that's only if you can stop me long enough to see more than just a blur. So in that case I'd say my overabundance of energy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: current favorite is Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom by Cory Doctorow

Movies: Real Genius is my favorite. A random selection of other movies I like include: Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Count of Monte Cristo, Big Lebowski, Outbreak, Sneakers, American History X.

TV: I'm a big Sorkin fan with The West Wing and Sports Night both being excellent. I'm addicted to all of the USA Network shows like Suits, White Collar, Psych, Covert Affairs, and Royal Pains.

Food: My homemade ice cream. Thick soups like corn chowder, butternut squash, or pumpkin. Anything with garlic. Guacamole.
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order: projects to work on, puzzles to solve, people to talk to, public transportation, and TiVo.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think about a lot of random things. How 4 would be the perfect number of hands to have. My many ideas for new restaurants (and other things too). Space. How the world is biased against us lefties. The YouTube video that will make me an instant 15 minute internet celebrity. How sweet potato is the uncanny valley of pies.
On a typical Friday night I am
Most likely I'm planning the many things that will happen on Saturday and Sunday. I seem to have an inability to plan far enough ahead, and it is hard to find people who want to do things on last minute notice. I'd love to find someone who is as excited by making spontaneous plans as I am.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm actually mostly Atheist. If you desire more clarification of the seeming contradiction between this and what it says on the right, just ask.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 25–37
  • Near me
  • For long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You are open to spur of the moment plans. I love adventures and the excitement of doing something unconventional, especially on a whim, just for the sake of doing it. Doing it for the idea. Even failures/disasters can be great if they make a good story. What I need is a girl who is as interested as I am in treating unrealistic jokes as serious suggestions.

I'm also always happy to share interests and the things I am passionate about with new people. And if you like listening to and telling stories as much as I do, let's find a bar/cafe with a patio to sit around and swap stories.
