My self-summary
I like outdoorsy things and indoorsy things. I'm left-handed, that counts for something, right?

Like anyone, I have my faults. But I am committed to living in adherence to my values, which include being honest, and treating all people with love and dignity.

I moved to Baltimore in October 2016, and am really loving the atmosphere of Baltimore. I walk to work everyday and I feel like it's given me a good sense of the city. I've lived all over this country, and while I can't say that I'll be in Baltimore forever, it certainly is among my favorite places to live.
What I’m doing with my life
work: I work for a university providing data to researchers. I never thought I would be working in this profession, but I really enjoy what I do. I won't bore you with the finer points of it though. It's really not all that interesting unless you wanna talk about programming languages, boolean logic, or database management.

hobbies: I really enjoy playing reading, hiking, camping and playing guitar . Reading books, playing guitar, hiking, kayaking, exploring, driving, posting pictures of landscapes, beers, and bars on Facebook, etc.

clubs/social activities: I started a beard club in Washington DC recently. We meet about once a month, and discuss grooming habits, social activism, charitable or volunteer opportunities, and heavy metal. mostly we talk about metal.

I always seem to have a lot going. That doesn't mean I don't have time in my life for a romantic relationship. Mostly it means that I have well developed calendar management skills.
I’m really good at
Arranging information into tables, playing guitar, putting myself into new situations and making it work.
The first things people usually notice about me
My punctuality. the severed hand. My Mona Lisa's smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like all sorts of food. Seriously, I'll try anything...

So lately I have just been reading public health books. Notable ones are Plagues and People, Partner to the Poor: A Paul Farmer Reader, The Demon Under the Microscope, and the Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawande. Otherwise, it's a mixture of fiction and non-fiction. I try to keep up with whatever Salman Rushdie is doing at any given moment. Tom Robbins or Stephen King are fun reading for me. Yes, Stephen King. People seem to have a problem with that. I will defend my position if you want to hash it out. Lately I've been reading about feminism.

As for music, I'm into a lot, and I could rattle off names, but I won't. If I had to pick one, I'd pick the minutemen (that's like, my "if I had to pick one album" I'd pick one of theirs). I like some pop stuff, but I'm a big classic rock fan/nerd. I could probably tell you more about Frank Zappa than anyone else. I also like feeding my younger punk rock side, and it can get weirder after that. My favorite singer right now is Mirah.

I like comedy movies mostly, but I'll pretty much watch anything. To be honest, I watch a lot of assorted media, often while I'm at work as background noise while I'm doing something else.
Six things I could never do without
to paraphrase Townes Van Zandt
1) legs to walk
2) thoughts to fly
3) eyes to laugh
4) lips to cry
5) a restless tongue to classify

6) a toothbrush (note: not part of a Townes Van Zandt song)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
When/where my next trip will be, social/racial equity, what a shitstorm the passed months since the election have been, and Cthulu.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home. Or out to a show. Or dinner. Or a movie. Or camping.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I play Dungeons and Dragons
You should message me if
If you wanna talk politics, gender dynamics, current events, or wanna hash some real shit out. Also, if you'd like to talk funny, or act as genuine as one can act when going on a first date.
The two of us
