My self-summary
I'm soft-spoken, but have strong ties with people who get to know me. I'm sincere, easygoing, and have warm and loving relationships with my friends. I express myself better through music, actions, and images than through words. I'm a professional who identifies as a creative person. I'm someone who lives on the boundaries between cultures, and does not fit neatly into any group.

Some of my interests include music, martial arts (naginata), social dancing, photography, hiking, robotics, vegetarian cooking, and travel.

I've been described as peaceful, sincere, easygoing, a good listener, honest, creative, encouraging, generous, patient, and reflective.
What I’m doing with my life
I play piano and flute, and I'm always looking for opportunities to play with other musicians. To make a living, I'm a scientist/engineer working for The Man. Part of the reason I continue this job is that it allows me freedom to use my creativity to advance my field of study. I'm a world traveller, and have been to four continents. I have a close bond with South America, and consider myself almost as much a South American as a North American.

I'm a photographer. My last big project was cloud photography, but now I want to do more with people. Check out my flickr site for more: http://www.flickr.com/photos/infinityfocused/sets/

I spend a lot of time thinking about
... the things that I spend a lot of time doing. These include:
- wandering with my camera
- working out: martial arts, hiking, swimming, biking, camping
- practicing piano, jamming with other musicians
- cooking and eating
- social dancing
- building things
On a typical Friday night I am
- social dancing (waltz, blues, tango, salsa)
- attending a show
- at a party (not often enough)
- seeing a film from my grandfather's time at the Castro Theatre
You should message me if
- You are comfortable with my being in open relationships, and you're willing to be friendly to my primary partner. You must be willing to talk openly about other people in our lives.
- You are comfortable meeting in person, someplace quick and casual. Rather than making a personal connection through a text stream, I prefer to talk with you over coffee or lunch without expectations.
The two of us
