I've been out of the loop dating wise for a number of years (for various reasons), and am now interested in meeting someone again.
Currently, I'm working on my PhD, focused on the digital arts. I'm also a practicing artist and curator, and travel fairly frequently for exhibitions, performances, festivals, etc. While my "art career" is important to me, what's more important to me are the people I have worked and developed relationships with. My "community of practice" and the people in it are something I could not live without.
I have a wide array of interests, but there's some nerdy things, like vintage radio technology, synthesizers, etc. One of my favourite things to do is go to flea markets and explore the odd artifacts, objects and people that populate them.
Mostly I'm built for urban culture. It fascinates and captivates me. But sometimes I like to unplug and do that whole sit by a big body of water and just listen... starting to learn the value of going offgrid every once and a while as a way to step away from things and recharge.... (spent xmas of 2015 offgrid on a houseboat in the subartic, it was pretty wonderful)
All around left-leaner. Empathy, imagination and intellect are qualities I value above all others.
So yeah. That's a bit about me. Want to know more? Drop me a line!
Books: As you can imagine, a PhD comes with a lot of reading, but I won't bore you with the theory books (there are MANY!) But I'm a big fan of William Gibson, Cory Doctorow, Bruce Sterling, Paul Auster...
Musical tastes: I'm a cross genre listener, and will give anything a chance. Lately it's a lot of minimal synth / ambient and drone. Long, quiet, good working music. When I need to pep things up, it's anything from De La Soul to Sonic Youth.
Open to any and all foods except for mushrooms, olives and broccoli. If you like that stuff, that's fine.. you can have mine!
tiny note books + not so tiny notebooks
my soldering iron.
.7mm liquid ink pens. in a pinch i'll take a .5mm . if i have to, i guess.
sometimes at home reading and writing and doing PhD related things (not so much a job as it is a lifestyle).
out and about at a gallery thing.
sometimes a live show.
right now, it mostly means sitting at home with a stack of books, prepping for my major PhD exams...
You're an amateur ghost-hunter.
You have a passion for a thing and want to share it.
imagination, empathy, and intellect are among the qualities you value in others.
Or you also think that Pink Floyd's "Shine on you Crazy Diamond" is one of the top two makeout songs of all time.
