My self-summary
Puppeteer by day, autodidact by night.
My often reqested party skills include performing sound effects, board game hosting, and ambient humor.
I like the feeling that I get when a great idea comes by.
I'll laugh to myself, if only because I feel good.
I float in the stream -- the flow moves me, and I direct the flow.
Enjoys introspection and making mistakes.
I am curious, understanding, and adaptable
Non-LDS, but w/ LDS background.
What I’m doing with my life
Two weekdays at technical school. Three weekdays working at a hotel.
I’m really good at
Listening and giving feedback.

Following directions, when I feel like they are worth following.

I can reframe a point of view toward simplicity or complexity.

Solving moderate computer problems.

I've been told that it's thrilling to skip with me through large crowds.
The first things people usually notice about me
I notice when I am noticed for; carrying a large water bottle, being helpful, being quiet, not eating mammal products.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I particularly like science fiction, documentary, and instructional films or books.

I like spicy food. You know it's spicy when it makes your nose run. When I can, I don't eat things made from 'mammal-flesh' or 'mammal-juice'.

Also, although not included in the title for this section, podcasts are my favorite media. Some of my favorites are RadioWest, Alan Watts Podcast, No Agenda, The Moth Podcast.

Six things I could never do without
The first six that come to mind, (and it doesn't bother me if you think they are cheesy or abstract) go something like;
a social support network
societal infrastructure
freedom and liberty
spare time
personal space
opportunity for growth and change

Some more immediate comforts;
the availability of (near)silence
cushioned seats
adjustable temperature
a place to get clean
tactile fidget objects
readily available food

I am reminded of another list of 6 universal human needs;
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Questions, often about systems and designs. What made the designer of this product/story decide that this detail should be this way?

Psychology, Philosophy, growth and development, Integral Theory, ethical pragmatism,social policy, game design (video, paper and pencil, and board games)

I think virtues have an opposite desirable trait; e.g. struggling to be more, while not having a need to be something other than what you are.

When would I change myself to be more compatible with my external reality, or when would I change the world to be better for me?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I believe that the whole point of this section is to offer some more risky self disclosure.

I identify with being a Post-Mormon, as in, my set of knowledge and beliefs stem from my former childhood religion. I have an appreciation what my upraising has done for me, but I do not hold a literal interpretation of its teachings, nor hold bitterness towards its adherents. Uncorrelated Mormon Former-Mormon

I feel like I'm keeping embarrassing secrets from the people I know as I answer these match questions.

There... I said it. :P
You should message me if
Mostly if you feel compelled to send me a message.

An Ideal Match:
She's open minded and is eager to explore other points of view and new ideas.

She cares about her health, well-being, and quality of life, and seeks to extend those values to the people she cares about.

She is aware of her growth and change, and she is driven to direct her growth in both the long-term and the short-term.

She enjoys my company enough that she prefers for me to be present, but is most often secure and happy without my presence.
The two of us
