My self-summary
I'm not easy to categorize but I am non-judgmental, attentive, and conversational in a very genuine way.

That is to say I surprise people. Not in a bad way, really, but rather in the thrown-for-a-loop type of way.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a social+tech developer who works with online video.  It's important work, and I'm good at what I do, but it's been a bit exhausting. After taking a break I'm starting again where I left off.

twice (maybe 3 times now?) I've met people in entirely different social contexts that have heard/experienced my work (with compliments!) -- it makes the rest oh-so-worth-it.
I’m really good at
Cadence and understatement, I think.
The first things people usually notice about me
"You're funny, but in a subtle way."

I use humor in markedly different ways: either to diffuse tense situations, to side-step conversations I'm not not ready for, or simply to be whimsical. It's fun to laugh together.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Arcade Fire, Shanghai Restoration Project (theme song alert), Girl Talk (early work), Explosions in the Sky, Imogen Heap, Crystal Method.  others, too.  I cracked up listening to Biz Markie yesterday

I gravitate towards movies where the protagonist wears a helmet or some sort of headgear.
The six things I could never do without
Cycling + walking (500 biked miles, +20 mi/week bike/walking).
gaaaah it's hot here. more likely spinning/swimming @ the Y
fall is nice.

A water heater, quality food, friends, a fair amount of sleep. My family has become increasingly important to me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
previously: I'm torn between the statements "I just want to live an OK life, not my best life, really, OK is just fine" and "live your best life."

now: I'm reallly happy in a relationship I love
You should message me if
I really do enjoy messages. talk to me!

if you'd like dating advice or want me to check out some profile for a 2nd opinion. i've been on OKC forever.
