My self-summary
Here we both are on OK Cupid, looking for something.

Bay Area native. Currently living in Oakland, working in SF.

I've decided to not list what Myers-Briggs type I am here.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a designer at a company that's making solar energy affordable to sub Saharan Africa. It's interesting, and you can ask me about it, but I'll only tell you about it in person.

I'm also taking evening classes, so I don't have tons of free time. But I'm worth the investment.

Divorced. No kids. Rock and roll, hikes, art stuff, riding bikes, making music, working on carpentry and furniture building projects.

I've traveled completely around the world twice in the last five years. I volunteer on tall ships sometimes. I read a lot. I do my best to be and learn about intersectional feminism.
The first things people usually notice about me
Tall, beard, tattoos, glasses, dimples. Often in that order.

Just had a friend use a tape measure – not lying about my height.

People say I have nice dimples. And a nice butt. So, if nothing else, at least I have those two things going for me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Oh yeah, stuff! You like stuff? I like stuff too! OMG We have so much in common!

I guess I'll mention a few things:
• Music: Delta Blues, Rock and Roll, Metal, Garage, Space Rock, Surf, New/No Wave, Psychedelic Drone, Doom.
• Books: Italo Calvino, Station 11, Hesse, Strange & Norrel, some Russians, A. Crowley, Joseph Campbell.
• Podcasts: Radiolab, TED, Philosophy Bites, British History Podcast, Revolutions, Myths & Legends.
• Food: Everything. I eat meat, but I can cook veggie too. I'm down for learning new vegetarian recipes, or any recipes, if you got 'em.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
• How to design for emerging markets.
• Making art.
• Social justice, gentrification, feminism, where I fit in with all of that, and how I can make an positive impact on my immediate community.
• Planning long backpacking trips in the Sierras.
• Vintage guitars and effects pedals, writing sick riffs.
• How to make this experience into a great story
• Adventure Time!!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My screen name is a reference to Star Wars, but I got it wrong and now I can't change it. Kessel Run in under 12 parsecs, not Kettle Run! (This is embarrassing on two levels: That I am making a nerdy Star Wars reference, and that I didn't even get it right).

I sniff glue. Wait, no, that's not something I'll admit. I take it back.
You should message me if
Let's hang out and see if we have any chemistry or electricity between us. Maybe let's see if we have some other sciences too, like mixology or biology or geography.

Also - I can't see who "likes" me - so you should message me if you want me to message back.
The two of us
