I am very curious, love learning, and like adventure mixed with good conversation (and visa versa).
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.
* 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!
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.
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).
How to have the most fun and fulfilling day today.
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 :)
