Much of my life is structured around community. I have a large, multivariate social circle, and my free time is typically spent working on parties, festival crews and art.
I'm committed to transparency, self-reflection and vulnerability. My friends are encouraged to hold me accountable and provide honest feedback; many of my relationships are built around mutual exploration of ethics and humanity.
In person I'm loquacious, witty and passionate. I love educated people, intelligent conversation and barbed humour. Prone to grandstanding, I love to perform.
Professionally I split my time between music, teaching and programming. I'm slowly building a business around my music, which has given me the freedom to travel and pursue self-actualisation. While I'm slowly staging out my old career as a software developer, it still pays the bills as needed.
My overall social profile draws equally from the raver, the academic, the artist, the event manager, the programmer and the teacher. It's a pile of odd cultural contradictions, but I'm fond of the cognitive dissonance. I context-shift between these worlds daily, and value each in its own right.
I'm committed to responsible, evidence-based hedonism. I believe in better living through chemistry.
Burning Man is a huge part of my life; my friends, lovers and allies are typically (but not universally) burners.
