My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm too clever for my own good by at least half, and it's very easy for me to overdo and over complicate everything. I used to fly around the world and setup TV stations, these days it's more digitalish ones in NYC, I'm into yoga and collect tarot cards. I've been to Burning Man, to FOX News coming directly from DemocracyNow!, CNN, and the NSA. I'm successful despite being a bit messy, highly functional, not particularly grounded, I've got a proper work ethic and believe in personal loyalty and generosity. I wouldn't say sarcasm is a must for me, though obviously humor is. I'm getting more judgmental I'll admit, but not cynical, I swear.

Pretty radical, not a good democrat . Thoroughly feminist, but not the least bit interested in identity politics, or, frankly, social justice. I believe both compassion and suffering are beyond meaningful quantifications and generalizations. I don't purport to have a vision as to how other's should live, I don't ever consider myself to be the instrument of anyone else's karma, or even speak of other's karma - except when I wonder/worry out loud about "Oprah's karma" - what does it mean to impact the lives of so many people you have never met?

Despite building enterprise scale media production systems for a living, I actually have strong misgivings about producing media - I prefer my sphere of influence to be as intimate as possible.
I'm certainly very comfortable with facilitating artists, maybe a little aggressive as muses go. "Conceptual Force Multiplier" is the first phrase in my linkedin profile. I used to think I strictly preferred vizer to king, lately I'm less sure.

Certainly battling the Final Secret of the Illuminati (or at least one of them) in that I've applied too much earnest creative effort into automating media production workflows for The Man to sincerely claim I'm still infiltrating. Besides, The Invisibles lost, so we've moved past steering the Apocalypse one way or another, and into Living In This Matrix, in which I am an admin but not r00t yet. There are external and internal aspects to this agenda.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I engineer media production workflows, mostly for news, sports, and entertainment broadcasters around the world. I'm telling guys who were in the news business when I was born how to make news. It's terrifying and bizarre.

I'm an expert at all sorts of things, I am certified in nothing. This applies to things like massive hard drive arrays and reiki.

Right now I'm solidly committed to a daily (let's call it:) meditation practice - 30min to 2hrs depending on my schedule.

I've grown a beard recently.

With so much travel-bragging on OKC, I'll just note I've been to about 30 countries for work & play, including 2 years living in Thailand, and a lot of time in India both personally and professionally. Favorite cities include Beirut, Kiev, Athens and Hong Kong. I like Europe more the further East I go. As for Cuba, Lonely Planet was right on with: "Restaurants are the Achilles Heel of the socialist revolution."
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Metadata Driven Workflow Automation. Listening. OS X. Getting super intense and into it. Optimizing. Translating creative visions into technical specifications. Devotion. Changing my mind and inevitably yours.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a little intense and enthusiastic.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
peanut butter toast, the internets, NPR/ KCRW, telepathy, ninjas, Kali, Illuminatus!, coffee, Bill Laswell, Stevie Wonder, Mark Farina, spooning, french toast, OS X, arstechnica, weird video art, the sacred, the thoth tarot, gardens, cheese, Harish Johari instruction manuals, StarCraft II, NFL, NBA, BSG, Sci-Fi via most mediums

I like electronica, good rap, probably remixed from the 90s , seriously danceable house music.

It's fine if you don't own a TV, I have 3 - including the projector. As an TV professional, I understand that all this entertainment is only a slight improvement over fire.

I completely understand how TV is made (all over the world, really) so watching TV with me can be kinda weird. I also play video games, and hike, and camp and own a car in Brooklyn.

Right now I'm also really into the Mary-El Tarot.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'm ignoring this section title, and instead talking about somethings I feel are essential to have in common:

Vegetarianism: I've dated a few non-Veg women now, and the truth is that I can ignore the grossness of meat eating up until a point, and then I can't. It gets in the way. Some fish sometimes is cool and all, but ideally it's about greens & grains & legumes and whatnot. I'm working on being able to eat fish, as I'm tired of being a difficult vegetarian, but really, I have no interest in it, and need to live in as much a meat free household as possible, without being a dick to guests.

Daily Practice in the Morning: Most of my work is in PST, and I'm blessed that my highly productive morning hours are my own. I've been using this time to cultivate my meditation practice. I've found it challenging to maintain this practice while in relationship that features sleep overs when I'm with someone who is not either outta the house pretty early or into doing the same thing at the same time.

Chakras & Goddesses: I'm deeper into it all then I generally come off as in person - I'm not an evangelist, and part of my practice is being diligent about keeping my ego out of it, but I'm particularly not interested in defending it. Discussing, explaining, debating - practicing - all good, but I don't want to have to sell the belief. The humility of agnosticism is a minimum, dedicated atheistism ends up being like meat, easily ignorable until it's entirely problematic.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Revolution!!!! It's (mostly) Awesome. I had some exposure the the Burma situation that made me pretty cynical that the people could rise up against jets and tanks. It's the most amazing time in human history to be alive.

Also-

How to save local news. Drone Journalism. How to fly a drone over an occupy protest without getting arrested or crashing it into people. How to get my drone out of a tree. Database design. User Interfaces for touch screens. Why people use 24p. Ganesh, Shiva, Kali, Tara. Whether or not I'm scared of google / facebook. Why Apple has abandoned ProApps / ProVideo. Signal Paths. Whether I should concentrate on enlightenment, or siddhis. How to treat you like a goddess w/out letting you walk all over me. ( <- **Update: Real Progress made on this one!**) Why all hindu deities love yogurt. Do I get out of Apple @ $420, or could it really go higher? Metaphysical / theological mechanics. The Locus of Intent. Why I'm not doing mantra Right Now. VALIS. Where domination fits into divine submission.

The interpretation for The Empress from the Mary-El Deck starts with a Mother Teresa quote:

'If you judge people, you have no time to love them'
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Dancing, flying, engineering, hacking, praying or at worst being merely entertained.

Honestly, I'm probably not drunk.

I am trying to dance at least once, hopefully twice a week. I'm right in front of one of the speakers, dancing continuously, in my own world, but hopefully not unapproachable.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not an atheist and I'm actively hacking my own brain.

It's all actually more complicated and more simple (not the same as easy) then it seems, don't be suprised if your assumptions are wrong (I assume mine are, but all Cretans are liars anyway.)
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 28–38
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You can handle the Tara as well as the Kali - there is a LOT of both going on over here right now. You've been warned.

I can handle your hypocrisy if you can (and visa versa.)

You want to do weird yoga on weekday mornings.
You have read Christopher Hyatt or Robert Anton Wilson or even Mantak Chia.
You are a breakdancing yogini, or aspire to be one, or have ever pretended to be one.
You have opinions on the Thoth Tarot Deck.
You tend toward Anusaura or Kundilini Yoga
You are cute & fun, ambitious & intense, and not terribly invested in your assumptions.
You grow your own food.
You are a post-punk anarchist, but without all the guitars.
You have an expansive view of tantra and don't see the Left Hand Path as bad/negative.
Semantics don't always need to be ideological.

Ideally you want to skate this line with me: extremely capable and successful in the world because we are consciously optimizing for actualization and drowning in bhakti at home.
