My self-summary
Enthusiast. Omnivore.
What I’m doing with my life
I program mobile apps for a living but I promise promise promise not to dick with my phone even a little bit while we're out on a date together, okay?

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.
I’m really good at
Improvisation.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Interpreting "favorite" as recently enjoyed rather than formative because, oh my god, we were all super into the exact same ten books in high school.

From last.fm, my most played artists over the past three months circa May 2016. Alphabetized to leave in some mystery:
Beyoncé, Bibio, Clogs, Explosions in the Sky, Hop Along, Kendrick Lamar, Kevin Gates, Moderat, Parquet Courts, Tortoise

Similarly, the ten most recent books from my Goodreads account:
- From Mathematics to Generic Programming, Alexander A. Stepanov
- The Handmaid's Tale, Margaret Atwood
- Bluets, Maggie Nelson
- Too Loud a Solitude, Bohumil Hrabal
- The Sculptor, Scott McCloud
- The Tetherballs of Bougainville, Mark Leyner
- Liquid Intelligence, Dave Arnold
- The Hour of the Star, Clarice Lispector
- Why Information Grows, César Hidalgo
- The Iraqi Christ, Hassan Blasim

My taste in movies leans toward artsy SF and good comedy -- good writing in general, really. Also, Sergio Leone.

I am pretty into food and drink, whether sought out from professionals or built by hand.
The six things I could never do without
Truth, beauty, charm, and strangeness. Gettin' on up, and getting down.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Non-state actors, la débrouillardise, dark networks, and post-nationality.

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.

My friends.

Money.

Women.
You should message me if
... you are sweet but hungry. If there's a chip on your shoulder and you have something to prove. (but not until after brunch)

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?
