My self-summary
I am a big nerd who is interested in lots of things. My general philosophy is to explore as many perspectives as possible and understand that while all of them may be true, none of them are The Truth. People often make life harder than it needs to be for themselves and each other; I'm no different, but I'm working on it.
What I’m doing with my life
Finding a balance between a job that challenges me, spending time with people important to me, exercising my creativity, and having unashamed, unrestrained fun.
I’m really good at
information modeling, sharing silences, articulating things precisely, hugging and cuddling
The first things people usually notice about me
My t-shirts get lots of comments.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I've heard it was John Lee Hooker who said that there were two kinds of music, good and bad. I subscribe to that philosophy in music and pretty much everywhere else. I'll give anything a shot once, and most stuff twice; trying new things is as important to me as enjoying old favorites, so I particularly love getting introduced to other people's old favorites.

I am generally looking for escapism in my movies and shows. Getting me to watch television other than cartoons is a feat. My threshold for empathy is too low to make it through a lot of newer comedy shows; watching people suffer or make bad decisions doesn't usually make me laugh.

A few things that have been getting a lot of play at the moment:
- I watch a lot of kung fu movies. Particularly fond of the 70's and 80's Shaw Brothers flicks. I am pretty much always down to watch Five Deadly Venoms, Crippled Avengers, or Kid with the Golden Arms.
- These three have been in heavy rotation in my living room dance parties: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oU_LIEYu3lM, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jBDnYE1WjI, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eu0KsZ_MVBc
- Keeping up with probably more comics than I need to, including: Saga, Sex Criminals, East of West, Bitch Planet, Lumberjanes, and Prophet.
- I love cartoons and think Adventure Time is one of the best things ever. Also have a lot of love for Rick and Morty, Gravity Falls, and the Lucas Bros.
- On near-constant overload from all of the delicious food Portland has on offer. I am about as omnivorous as they come.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
everything. I'd delete the "about" if they'd let me and leave it at that.

One thing getting lots of attention lately: given the evidential problems of assholes and human tribalism/xenophobia, is it realistic to expect any human institutions to be particularly lasting? Can we ever really make sure everyone has a voice and feels heard if we know some people will always shout that other people shouldn't have a voice?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm poly, which continues to be hard work and totally awesome. I do have some people in my life already, so you should be OK with that.
You should message me if
you are interested in an easy going playmate who is open to letting a relationship be as deep or shallow as fits
The two of us
