My self-summary
I spend a fair amount of time trying to move objects with my mind. I'm getting better.
What I’m doing with my life
I live a double life: tutoring impressionable young minds by day and crafting brain-exploding works of theater and visual art by night. And sometimes I do Kung Fu.

Full disclosure: I am in a long-distance open relationship - just so's ya know.
I’m really good at
Makin' art, I hope. Makin' friends, sometimes. Makin' haste, when I have to.
The first things people usually notice about me
Nose? Eh... Yeah, probably the nose.

The six things I could never do without
A creative outlet
Interesting people
Comfortable shoes
The ocean
A home
Something to learn
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whatever I'm making at the moment. So right now, how homo sapiens has evolved culturally over the course of our 200,000 year existence. There's a point to it, I swear.

Also food and leisure and sex I guess?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
In certain contexts, I enjoy being in positions of power
You should message me if
You attack life like you mean it, you're some sort of an artist or academic, you're into or at least open to non-monogamy, you have a favorite graphic novel, you want me to read your tarot.

Or whatever, why not?
