My self-summary
/*I've decided that I'm best summarized by describing a collection of different modes or "selves" that I switch between. I'm aware that this makes it sound like I have a multiple personality discorded. I assure you we do not. See what I did there?*/

Fiercely Effective Activist (FEA): I'm devoted not just to to being active towards sustainability and social justice but actually achieving good outcomes. As such, FEA involves cutting through bullshit (mine and societies), learning new skills, and pushing the boundary on what is possible.

Silly: I'm so very very silly. I'm always making faces at little kids on airplanes to make them laugh. I love making up silly walks, funny songs, and making fun of myself.

Urban Planning Geek: I love all things urban planning but especially transportation and land use. I'll talk your ear off about bike lanes, bus rapid transit, zoning, etc. You've been warned.

Jack of All Geeks: I geek out about just about anything fairly easily. I'm not the King of All Geeks, I'm the Jack. Related: Board Games Geek, Computer Geek, History Geek, Politics Geek, Science Geek

Devoted Friend/Lover: I'm really devoted to those I call friend or lover and I take my promises to people very seriously. I'll go out of my way to help a friend in distress including late night phone calls/chats and even sending chocolate across the country.

I Need A Hug: I really really like hugs. They're the best thing ever.

Cuddler: Nothing like curling up under the blankets for an hour. Or three.

Cook: Even better than eating good food is eating food AND feeding someone else.

Passionate Lover: Similar to my opinion on cooking, I consider bringing my partner pleasure in bed in addition to receiving it to be a joy sublime.
What I’m doing with my life
"This isn't a practice life, this is the big game." - Brother Ali, A Letter to My Countrymen

I've been collecting ideas, habits, skills, and relationships all my life. Big ideas come easy to me. Making them a reality is much harder, but I'm getting better at it.

I lived in Seattle for a few years, then went off to Hawaii. Last spring I got my Masters in Urban and Regional Planning from The University of Hawaii. (It's fun to say: MURP!)

I have been known to work in computer tech support to pay the bills an I may give that another go while I try to make the urban planning thing work.

I'm back in Seattle for the indefinite future, looking forward to new adventures.
I’m really good at
public policy, writing, cooking, building with legos, making funny jokes, making bad jokes, making jokes no one understands

fresh bread, a bicycle, grass, water, friends, hope
On a typical Friday night I am
doing the same thing I do every night, try to take over the world!

*ahem*

I mean...

Playing soccer, frisbee or dodgeball or hanging out with friends. I like having friends over for dinner and a movie or going out to a restaurant or bar.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Conventional wisdom holds that "it's not private if you put it on the internet" which is true insofar as one accepts private and "not private" as binary states of being. Can there be a spectrum of privacy on the internet?

All of which is to say, I sometimes overthink things.
