My self-summary
First and foremost I am attracted to integrity, ingenuity, and impishness. Socially I tend to trek with artists, hippies, goths, punks, and geeks; there's a soft spot in my heart for anyone who is passionate enough about some part of life to wander completely off the beaten path.

I believe the best lives are those richest in experiences, to that end I try to do everything under the sun at least once. This philosophy has led to moments banal, surreal, disgusting, delicious, humbling, and sublime; even the most miserable of them I would never willingly forget.

When I'm not telling tall tales, I love to play games that take thought, make delicious meals with close friends, create art of all kinds, talk about matters both weighty and frivolous, go on adventures, and consume all the films and books.
What I’m doing with my life
Nurturing my son.
Fighting cancer with bioinformatics.
Serial entrepreneurship.
Forming an intentional community.
H̶o̶s̶t̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶r̶e̶g̶u̶l̶a̶r̶ ̶g̶a̶m̶e̶ ̶n̶i̶g̶h̶t̶s̶.̶
Writing when the spirit moves me.
Practicing piano and voice.
Impromptu dance parties in the living room.
Non-hierarchical polyamory. (NSPP!)
Loving my friends to death. (Disposing of the bodies is kind of a hassle...)
The first things people usually notice about me
My laugh, probably from several seats away. It is legend amongst my circle of friends, and has earned me many a free theater ticket.

The six things I could never do without
#6: My cars and trucks down comforter.
#5: Chocolate cows, which produce delicious chocolate milk.
#4: Netflix, which keeps me company on lonely nights.
#3: My clawfoot bathtub. I swear the claws are ornamental.
#2: My man-eating leopard. I swear the claws are ornamental.

And the number one thing I could never do without?

#1: David Letterman Top 10 lists.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Intentional community, organic food, transhumanism, board games, pranks, politics, feminism, racism, pedagogy, technology, Magic decks, Burning Man, BDSM, polyamory, storytelling, dreaming, music, regenerative medicine, science fiction, stained glass window design, the future, love, humor, people, and the heat death of the universe; all in no particular order.
On a typical Friday night I am
Eating an early dinner with my wife and baby. Putting our son to bed at 6 PM, and then playing board games or watching Netflix together until the very, very, very late hour of 9 PM. Brushing, flossing, and going to bed early in order to get up at the very, very, very reasonable hour of 6 AM with our child on Saturday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't actually like David Letterman Top 10 lists.
You should message me if
You can make me laugh. (Tickling is a hack, but I approve.)
You are looking for a lasting and meaningful connection.
You love games.
You are excited by power exchange.
You want to teach me something you love.
You have a magical corner of the universe to show me.
