My self-summary
I'm a mad engineer with a passion for storytelling and debate. I've built death carts, taught pole dancing, and my recent projects include building a haunted house and cooking for friends.

My creative projects have included choreographing a massive sword and staff fire dance inspired by the Maori Haka with influences from around Indonesia and East Asia (see here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6uHLf2RKMg ) and building a human sized hamster wheel powered carriage (needs a little work but is functional, see here: http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2485/3911774516_48571a6f1f_b.jpg ).

I'm polyamorous with multiple existing relationships. I'm certainly available, but not single. If you want to talk about polyamory or are just curious about it in general I'm happy to chat about it, but please be aware that I have absolutely no interest in closed or monogamous relationships of any kind, and this will never change.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently working as a QA Automation Engineer and spending my spare time finding wacky hijinks to get into. Those adventures often include things like iron chef style cooking competitions, sea shanty sing-alongs, and planning secret adventures for friends.

Lately each week I've been hitting the gym a bunch more, and going camping on weekends where that's possible. There's so many awesome things to do in this area! I just finished an obstacle course run and am working at regionals when I can.
I’m really good at
Schematics, making things go, breaking things (and rebuilding them), and puns.

Cooking fairly simple food but making it just that little bit fancier, or just needlessly complicated. Making hot chocolate and being a good person to talk to.

I also used to work as a camp counselor, teaching kids sock puppet musical theater and stilt walking. I'm still half decent at dancing with fire.
The first things people usually notice about me
I often get random "Looking classy!" or "Good morning, Rabbi" from strangers. Evidently I have a distinctive way of dressing. Also, my hair's pretty long, so that comes up.

*Note: I am not actually a Rabbi. Evidently sometimes I look like one.

Six things I could never do without
I never like questions like this. I'm too much of an engineer at heart to answer anything other than things I truly can't do without: Stimulus, Oxygen, Food, Water, Heat, and Shelter.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Political Theory, Probability Analysis (yes, I can be geeky enough to do that when bored), Relationships, Daydream Stories, Fire Choreography, Structure Design, Art Constructions, Being a Superhero (hey, don't knock my dreams), Strange and Wonderful Contraptions. I've built up a long term zombie defense plan in my spare time, and really like planning out buildings and temporary structures. Lately I've been devising automation tools.
On a typical Friday night I am
Lately, gaming and feasting with friends, as we now do a regular pot luck gaming session that day. Other regular social activities for me are going out dancing on Mondays and practicing yoga and martial arts on Tuesdays or Thursdays depending on schedule. Sunday is a pot luck Game of Thrones feast with a different (but overlapping) group of friends. Even when I'm just home for the night I tend to like to cook.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm partially colorblind... does that count?
You should message me if
You have an interesting story or joke you'd like to share.

You'd love a lunch partner in San Francisco.

You feel like it?

And if you randomly use OKCupid's like feature... by all means, send a message and say hi. I don't have A list. And I'm not that scary, I swear!

Do not message me if: Your goal with me is a monogamous romantic relationship. I am very happily polyamorous and will be more than happy to explain how that works for me if you like. I'm not going to help anybody cheat, nor am I a fan of secrecy when it comes to my love life, so please take that into consideration.
The two of us
