My self-summary
In Seoul for the summer, live in LA.

I'm a historian-in-training, Asianist, lover of food and travel and new experiences, films, music, literature, making bad collages from old magazines, writing doggerel, sometimes obsessively fixating on minutiae, alternately annoying and charming those close to me, making jokes about inappropriate subjects, playing garage rock on the guitar, and contradicting and challenging myself and others because I'm curious about them and interested exploring our beliefs and ideas (or just being a contrarian, which is definitely true). That sounds like I'm a bit intense, maybe. That's true sometimes, but I'm absolutely always having fun with it, and my idea of fun doesn't always involve mental gymnastics. Sometimes it involves a bloody mary or a baseball game or a picnic or a bike ride or a game of tennis.

I recently left a collective/intentional community/commune just south of Koreatown with ten other people, they are still family, but I moved to the west side to be closer to school.

My wife and I are interested in openness/polyamory/non-monogamy and have both had a few experiences with it. We are both interested in dating other people independently and/or meeting other couples to talk about what this sort of life entails. Nothing heavy, just casual and fun, and we'll see where each connection takes us. That said, I'm looking for genuine connection with people, not just casual sex and the like.
