My self-summary
Quasi-nomadic existentialist with an analytic mind and an addiction to thrill seeking on glorified children's bikes. Or something like that.

I am very curious, love learning, and like adventure mixed with good conversation (and visa versa).
What I’m doing with my life
Learning. Having fun. Exploring. Creating.

I remodel homes to pay the bills, but try to dedicate as much time as possible to working on things which I find more fulfilling.

My main research project right now analyses how BMX and skateboarding interact with cities and design-based forms of spatial governance. My side project looks at the intersection of gender and male bodies, examining how discourses on manhood and masculinity end up pre-determining the types of solutions we as a society can imagine for various gender issues.
I’m really good at
* Mixing dumb action films with philosophical discussion (a.k.a. hosting Brovant-Garde Movie Night. Yes, that's a thing).
* Being content wandering aimlessly.
* Justifying to myself that free time and my projects are more important than expendable income.
* Making lists of three, apparently... Ah, dang it!
The first things people usually notice about me
That I look like Davey Havok.

No, just kidding. I look nothing like Davey Havok. Too bad. I honestly haven't a clue what people notice first. I'd like to think it's something deep. Like a radiating sense of joyous curiosity, my lust for life, or deep thought.... In reality tho it's probably just the glasses and hair. Which make me look like Skrillex. Oh well.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love reading, mostly nonfiction. Common themes lately: cognitive science, spatial politics, modern history, and the possibilities for integrating bodywork with psychotherapy...
My academic background is in Gender Studies (queer theory, feminism - you know, that flavor of fantastic).

I don't watch a ton of movies, but when I do they often fall into the weird artsy/obscure/documentary/what-the-hell-did-I-just-watch category. Either that or they're super dumb action films. Ideally, they're a mix of the two (yes, it can happen).
The six things I could never do without
"Never" is a bit of a stretch, but bikes, books and buddies are all crucial for my mental health, haha!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
long-term career possibilities, but how all I really want to do is have fun, goof off, and work on my nerdy little research projects.

How to have the most fun and fulfilling day today.
On a typical Friday night I am
My schedule is pretty erratic, so on any given Friday night I could be at home reading/writing, dancing with friends, in the woods camping, sleeping for work the next day, watching a movie with my roommate, or out on my bike.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
just because I've been categorized as male, ride BMX, and have muscles doesn't mean that I want to play out some gender role stereotype - be it on the streets or in the sheets.
You should message me if
You like to wander the city, share good conversation, and have fun.
...
A curious mind and lust for life are BIG turn-ons. What are you stoked on? If you have a hard time answering that, then we'll probably not hit it off. If you're like "Aww snap - where do I even start!" then you should start by picking your favorite thing and telling me about it :)
