My self-summary
OPEN RELATIONSHIP DISCLAIMER: I'm in a monogamish long-term relationship with someone I met on OKC, SafteyLast. I don't have a lot of casual dating free time, but if you're fantastically nerdy--like, "owns MtG decks" and "has a Fibonacci tattoo" nerdy--you should say hello. END DISCLAIMER.

I recently lost a camera drone in a tree. If you would like to help me get a camera drone out of a tree, that would be cool.

I go to the Central Park petting zoo kind of a lot. More than average.

I won money on Cash Cab.

I used to get in a lot of reddit arguments about transgender rights, gender equality, and racial bias. "Maybe Hispanics are just worse with money and that's why they can't get loans, you ever think of that?" was something someone said to me, someone without exploding from the buildup of chronic redneckery.

This is the funniest 18 seconds on the Internet.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in closed captioning and subtitling, helping ensure that deaf people the world over never have to miss an episode of Marriage Boot Camp.
I’m really good at
Geeky trivia, Boggle, improvisational soup-making, copy-editing, consuming a season of a show in a sitting, and derailing a conversation to reference an obscure piece of pop-culture minutiae. I like making sushi and salad dressing. I've been stealing too many things lately.
The first things people usually notice about me
You can't have this many tattoos and not have the answer be "this many tattoos." Unless I reek of something unholy and never noticed. I probably would have noticed.

A new Russian place opened up in my neighborhood and holy hell, who knew stroganoff could be so divine? I tend to love on anything with some heat to it-- Ethiopian, Thai, curries of all shapes. If you don't want your pickle, I will take it.
Six things I could never do without

A bed. I don't mean the whole mattress-pillows-sheets ensemble; I mean the actual frame. Is there anything sadder than a mattress on the floor? Sarah McLachlan puppy commercials notwithstanding.




Peeling the film off a new piece of electronics.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How in The Dark Knight Rises, Commissioner Gordon states flat-out that the entire might of the Gotham City Police Department cannot figure out who the joker really is, and yet no one bothered to take off his makeup so they could at least start flipping through some mugshot books. Stellar police work there, boys.

When not nitpicking movies, I get in a lot of heated discussions about how just because gender inequality and racial bias are no longer blatantly displayed by high-profile bigots, that does not mean they have vanished. I recently took a hiatus from reddit after hearing that: a) women are not being discriminated against in the tech industry because they don't even WANT computers made for ladies anyway, and b) white people do not have any more special privilege than blacks because they, too, go to jail.

If anyone has any tips on how to stay positive against wave after wave of that kind of ignorance, I'm all ears.
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying to drink positivity back into my soul after enduring a week of watching terrible reality television frame by frame.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've keyword-searched "cosplay" on OKC.
You should message me if
...you've ever uttered "Why are the save points so #$@!%ing far apart?!" out loud at the television.

...you've ever wondered what it feels like to be bitten by a parrot.

...looking at a ridiculous amount of nerdy tattoos appeals to you. (6/15/15: Recently added Scott Pilgrim head, which brings the total up to 7 and a sleeve)

...you find comic-book stores almost painfully full of promise.

You shouldn't if...
...you've ever said, "I don't watch television." Cutting yourself off from such an enormous source of culture, education, and entertainment is not commendable. It's kind of depressing.
The two of us
