My self-summary
Hello Boulder!

I'm new to the area; I spent a year living in a car-dependent north Dallas 'burb, and while my job there was okay, I hated everything else about living there. I went looking for a job someplace more civilized, and landed here. I'm liking it a great deal, but exploring solo is less fun than doing so with a charming companion. I'm quite interested in having company to explore the area's restaurants, perhaps go on a hike or two, and slide in to Denver to explore museums and other aspects of that city.

I'm not looking for the love of my life; if romance evolves, that's cool, but do be aware that I have a relationship with a woman in New York, who is the mother of my daughter. No, we are not married, and yes, she is okay with my seeing other people. I know that's going to be a sticking point for most, but better that this not come as an unpleasant surprise later.

I'm also not looking for a quick plunge into flesh; again, if things evolve in that direction, that would be fun. But what I'm seeking at the moment is an intelligent, interesting woman to share my explorations with. And if you've been in the area for a while and can show me around, so much the better.

The SF in my nick is for San Francisco, which is where I was when I first created an OKC profile. I'm a native New Yorker, however, and have lived in four different cities in the last three years: SF, NYC, McKinney Texas, and now Boulder. I've made a career out of my adolescent enthusiasms: I'm a game designer and science fiction author, currently working on free-to-play mobile games. I've been a car-free bicycle commuter for 20 years -- which, as you might imagine, is not easy if you're living in Texas, but I wasn't going to stop being me while I was there. Yes, I'm a bit of a green, and one of the first things I did when I got here was register to vote; I'm still on the voter roles both in Texas and New York, but figured a vote in a swing state was likely to make more of a difference.

So... Can I buy you dinner?
What I’m doing with my life
Design games. Play games. Write books. Read books. Pet cats. Travel. Bicycle. Cook. Eat out. Haven't skied in many years, but would like to get back to that.
I’m really good at
Designing games. I write pretty well. Probably not so good at selling myself, but self-aggrandization is always awkward. I make an excellent Puttanesca, though.
The first things people usually notice about me
How do we know how others see us? Sardonic sense of humor, I like to think. Though I was once told it was a certain intensity of gaze.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I suspect my answer would be different on any random day, but:

Shepherd's Historical Atlas
Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?
Jonathan Coultron's "Still Alive"
Six things I could never do without
Muttering under my breath at drivers encroaching on my bike lane.

A stiff drink after a hard day at work.


Intellectual stimulation.

Polyhedral dice.

On a typical Friday night I am
Reading The Economist and filling out inane questionnaires on OK Cupid, apparently.
You should message me if
This sounds remotely interesting.
The two of us
