Polyamorous with a truly wonderful woman!
Virtually engaged to my Google Calendar...
My relationships are open, with polyamorous intent.
Avid reader, autodidact, scientific thinker, spiritual believer.
Bisexual, practiced lover. Medium to high libido, but not addicted to sex anymore than I am to food or breathing.
I am outgoing, caring, and quirky
Having gone back to school for engineering, I opted for a practical route over theoretical. This has led to getting a degree in technical sciences with a focus on welding, and a job making bicycles in Detroit. Give me a year or so to get the feel of working in the manufacturing industry, and then I'll most likely be rolling into my next college adventure!
I finish work around 4 p.m. each day, so weekdays are actually not terrible for me to meet. I start work at 7 a.m., however, so staying out past ten or so can be problematic.
After spending so many years as a teacher, it seems a shame to just put those skills on a shelf. So, I'm teaching welding, juggling, and performance at the i3 Detroit Hackerspace as well as at various conventions, such as Penguicon and ConFusion.
I go out of my way every day to make every person I interact with happier and healthier for knowing me. Ask me about learning to juggle sometime, I promise you can learn at least the basics in a single lesson!
Top of my list of things I'm good at would be making people happy. You know how with some people, after you've spent some time talking to them, or even just watching them go about their lives, the world seems to be a happier, richer place? That's the kind of person I strive to be.
How-To books, Utopian/Dystopian musings, and light fantasy for brain-candy (Patricia Briggs, Mercedes Lackey, and Steven Brust spring to mind)
Lately, I've been doing a random survey of whatever happens to be at the dollar cinema thus week. Anything from Pixar. And fantasy classics, like Flight of Dragons, Labyrinth, and Princess Bride. I tend to like my movies to have a happy ending. If I want drama or terror, I'll watch the news.
Pandora! I like things I can dance to, or laugh with, or sing along to. 80's and 90's dance mixes are especially fun. I've recently taken a liking to things like Mumford and Sons and Of Monsters and Men. Enigma and Deuter are nice for relaxing.
I'll try anything, and probably try to make it myself if I can figure out what's in it! I'm a fan of sushi and other japanese foods, along with mexican, chinese, thai, and of course the great american burger.
