My self-summary
TL,DR: Geeky but well-spoken guy seeks intelligent, yet affectionate girl for escapades, conversation, and shenanigans.

Many people on OKC seem to describe themselves as explorers or adventurers. While I do love to travel (I've been to 16 countries so far, mostly Europe), what I truly enjoy exploring are ideas. I love envisioning new technologies; I love debating philosophies and politics; I love art and games that force me to take a new perspective on things. If you are someone who likes to think and read without being coerced to do so, I'm sure we'll find something to talk about. : )

Also, I'm an extroverted INTJ. Yes, I know what the "I" stands for; I just mean that while I need time on my own to recharge, I do my best to be gregarious in social situations. Life's too short to be timid.
What I’m doing with my life
Job-wise, I'm a User Experience Designer for a kickass tech consultancy in Point Richmond. (For the uninitiated: if you think of programmers as plumbers/electricians/contractors... I'd be the architect.) Pretty happy there and not looking to leave any time soon, though I'm keeping a keen eye open for UX work in educational areas - I'm a big fan of Khan Academy and its ilk.

I'm also lead designer on a small startup, which is moving slowly but steadily. That, the day job, and various chores and nerdy activities tend to round out my schedule nicely.

Oh yeah, and chilling with my cat Schrödinger.
I’m really good at
Understanding things from someone else's point of view. Acting rationally. Fixing relatives' computers. Oh yeah, and my specialty is getting distracted, I'm really good at that.

I used to be quite good at jazz bass - I played at the Hollywood Bowl once. (Oh yeah, I'm from Hollywood. Yes, my parents work in the movie business. No, I haven't met any movie stars.) I let it go a bit during college - turns out getting a Mechanical Engineering degree from Berkeley doesn't leave you with a lot of spare time for practice. Trying to get the music back in my fingers now, though.

Someone to talk to.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whether we're going to blow ourselves up or start interstellar colonization first. What I'm going to say next. Why we can't have nice things.

In terms of philosophies, I'm transhumanist, feminist, liberal, atheist, socialist, utilitarianist, secular humanist, and naturalist. Fundamentally, though, I'm an engineer and a pragmatist at heart; I think it's pointless to insist about what should be, when we need to be talking about what could be.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing poker, seeing a movie, or going to the Albatross (the best pub in Berkeley) with my buddies.

I'm up for adventure, but I'm not a fan of clubbing, or other venues where I can't hear myself think.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I play Dungeons and Dragons regularly. What can I say? Being a wizard is fun.
