Before that I used to be a scientist, which is a boss job title, but the steady, low-intensity heartbreak of R&D eventually burnt me out. Other previous lives include: web dev, student, production artist, computer lab babysitter, and high-speed pizza delivery specialist.
Outside of employment I spend as much time as possible collaborating on projects with my friends -- installation-scale art and social events, mainly. I go out a lot but reserve time alone too. I keep busy.
From last.fm, my most played artists over the past three months circa May 2016. Alphabetized to leave in some mystery:

Curation as a creative act.
What I am about to get up to in the kitchen.
Artifacts which grow better with use, rather than worse: leather accessories, predictive text, and so forth. I have a thing for 'em.
They should totally break out a disclaimer section because everybody stuffs theirs here, heh. Thus, my DISCLAIMER: My non-monogamous outlook is a permanent feature rather than a phase. Since that kind of thing can be a massive deal-breaker on both sides, let's be respectful and awesome and neither of us waste the other's time if it will, ok?
