My self-summary
Intelligent, sensitive and thoughtful multiracial being. I'm the kind of person who is perfectly happy being alone for days on end, with only books, shows, games and movies to entertain them. I devour experience. When I encounter a world I want to explore and understand, I move in and internalize its logic.

I'm gregarious and silly in public, but understated and relaxed when left to my own devices. If I'm not speaking, I'm taking in my surroundings, people-watching, eavesdropping, and/or silently judging everyone because that's what you do.

A teacher once said about me, "He lives in a fantastic and interesting world, but it would be nice if sometimes he'd let us come visit." And that's probably still apt, but, I think, in a different way than originally meant.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an architect, but it's primarily to pay the bills, as desk jobs just aren't for me. When I'm not working, I'm drawing, writing, reading, watching tv and movies (good, bad, and weird), etc. Basically, if you give me a good story or a fascinating world to occupy, I'm all in.

I'm an aspiring writer and have to be more diligent about putting pen to paper. Create rather than consume, right? The dream is to publish a novel, which I'm diligently working toward. I'm putting a few thousand words down per day, but I've also been working on a few short stories.

And, for the record, I'm in an open polyamorous triad with a wonderful married couple. I love them both very much but I'm also seeking more deep, enriching connections with others.
I’m really good at
Talking. Seriously. I grew up near Boston, so dry sarcasm is my baseline. Wait...dry sarcasm with a wry smile is my baseline. I'm also passionate about what may classically be considered nerdy things, so I will beam at you while I talk about how conceptually exciting virtual reality is and how videogames and comicbooks are fascinating and rich narrative platforms.

I've also been told I'm a great dancer, but I think that's more a result of the fact that dancing is the most fun. Period. It's probably less that I'm a great dancer and more that I like dancing. As a wise man once said, if you're having fun on the dance floor, you're looking good. That man had never seen "The Elaine."

I can also sing. And write. And draw. I don't do these things as much as I ought to, but I'm actively changing this.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a silly moustache. Sometimes (most times) it's a mad scientist moustache, sometimes it's a dastardly handlebar moustache, but it's always, throughout, a moustache.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Master and Margarita, Cat's Cradle, Good Omens

Movies: Monty Python and the Quest for the Holy Grail, Waking Life, Frank

Shows: Adventure Time, Crazyhead, Chef's Table

Music: Animal Collective, Grizzly Bear, James Blake, and their ilk.

Food: Thai, Japanese, Dim-Sum (I enjoy all cuisine, but if I had to put together a last meal, it would be culled from these. Also, there would be tiramisu for dessert.)
Six things I could never do without
My bicycle.
Drawing materials.
My cat, Letho, and dogs, in general.
Bad jokes.
General weirdness to bask in.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why are people usually more offensive while trying not to offend?

Would cute animal-based healthcare extend the average human lifespan?

How do I say what I'm thinking while being context-appropriate and without offending anyone?
On a typical Friday night I am
With friends, celebrating one thing or another or learning how to make a new cocktail, sometimes followed by hot tubbing. If I'm staying in, I'm writing and getting rest so I can be sharp for creating, performing and partying on Saturday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If there's a dog in your profile photo, I'm likely to check your photos just to see more of the dog. Dogs are mankind's greatest achievement in the realms of both cuddles and friendship.
You should message me if
you want to go to some shows, music, comedy, art, etc. Or if you want to go for a nice bike ride and then picnic. Or if you were entertained by the majority of the above text.

Or if you're as unbelievable as this young lady:
The two of us
