My self-summary
I am a work in progress!

... Much like this profile. Actively waiting it, check back in a bit.

I used to work in the tech industry, but became unsatisfied with the market and culture, at least here in Oregon.

For the moment I am a Care Provider working with the developmentally disabled. I'm finding it much more satisfying and fulfilling on all levels, and it is easily the least stressful job I have ever worked.

Like anyone, I'm working on life and trying to shift things into a place where I'm happy with what's going on. It's all a matter of progress and time, and I get a little closer to them every day

Outside of the usual partner-in-crime deal, I am looking for someone to run around and do general geekery with; Conventions, tabletop gaming, coop, camping in Powells for a while, that sort of thing.

I am fundamentally poly, but not seriously attached to anyone at the moment

Also, my photos are old, I'm working on that bit
What I’m doing with my life
I'm always look for the way I can best be self employed, and perhaps travel doing it. I have not seen nearly enough of my state, let alone the country or world at large.
I’m really good at
Art. I am good at art. I win at art, when I can force those nubbins I call fingers to do their thing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Actually, let's talk about this idea for a second.

I'm not a big fan of boiling anything down to a favorite. It disqualifies the qualities of individual persons and works, giving this toxic idea that there is such a thing as 'best'. There's not. Stop it. Even if I were to decide I enjoy something more than most other things, that's a very transient momentary state. Something else will come along, something that has always been there will reveal new qualities.

I do not, that said, blame people for choosing favorites. That's the way our culture works. Find the best, promote it that way. I just think it's something worth working on moving away from.

Removing the stick from the conversation, I enjoy a lot of movies, books, music, and other media for different reasons, and have a vast collection of all of them.

Genres I particularly enjoy include Science Fiction and Fantasy, Dark Comedy, Horror. I like some portion of all flavors of music, but particularly I like things you don't hear on the radio all that often, just as a matter of not having it ground into your eardrums to be memorized like The Little Red Book.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My writing, mostly. I'm always coming up with new twists and details about a character or bit of the story. Sometimes its a reflection of life, sometimes its pulled out of my ass.

I shut down my profile for a long while because I was having a difficult time thinking of something positive to say. My profile has been self deprecating for a long while. Then I saw a comic that equated doing that to selling an appliance you think doesn't work. You'd have a hard time getting someone to buy a broken DVD player on the merit that it was once did a decent job of playing discs.

The idea being don't push something you don't believe in yourself, and that caused some deep introspective thought
On a typical Friday night I am
Same thing I try to do every night, Pinky: Try to take over the world!

...I've been told this is terribly generic, and I can't be bothered to care. I like it.
You should message me if
Well, let's see here. The big obvious answers would be "If you want to" or “Because you're interested!”. Both are completely acceptable. Neither are necessary, but I can't imagine I'll be hearing from you if either one of those is somehow absent.

From a less obtuse angle, do you like movies that are so bad they make you laugh? Perfect! We can go do something involving that and run from there.

So, drop me a note! I've noticed that most of the people that I meet off of here are those that don't show up under the searches I do
The two of us
