My self-summary
I'm an open-minded, ambitious, lefty-wing nut adventurer. I take pleasure in exploring both new and familiar places, connecting with people on topics of all kinds, and challenging myself to be creative and move proactively through life. I can be an intense personality, but love to make others laugh, or pause to think, and hope to add valuable warmth to every moment.
What I’m doing with my life
Bicycling, Tricycling
Making spreadsheets
Laps in the pool
Talking, presenting, debating
Workin' in the garden
I’m really good at
Remembering names and faces
Systems thinking
Space Catan
Asking questions and listening closely
Visibly blushing if teased accurately
Planning to make art, and failing to make time to try.
Small Talk (which everyone says they hate, but seem delighted by if done with a bit of wit and creativity. Am I brightening someone's day? Or are you all internally gagging at my antics in lineups, coffee shops, elevators and doorways everywhere? :-P )
The first things people usually notice about me
My big, easily induced smile
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
(Non-exhaustive list)
Books: J Franzen's "The Corrections", P Quarrington's "Galveston", David Mitchell's "Cloud Atlas", C Ryan's "Sex at Dawn", Dawkin's "The God Delusion", P deWitt's "The Sisters Brothers", Emily Mandel's "Station Eleven", Tolle's "The Power of Now" ... this list could go on forever and changes annually.

Movies: Pulp Fiction, The Fifth Element, Alien, Ma vie en Rose, Dr. Strangelove, Pan's Labyrinth, Amelie (again, etc etc)

Food: Green smoothies, mostly anything Mexican, freshly caught fish, salad, more salad, and fruit. Really, just about all non-processed food.

Music: Tame Impala, Radiohead, Tiga, Young Galaxy, Sigur Ros, Neko Case, MIA, Goldfrapp, Disclosure, Beck, Caribou and much, much more.
Six things I could never do without
Well lit spaces
Time to sit in silence
My family
Stimulating conversation
(7) A garden
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How beautiful life is
Fun ways to build community
How to practice and grow creatively
On a typical Friday night I am
At yoga, or hanging with a few close friends, or at a large social gathering like a BBQ, the beach, or something festive.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I practice a type of meditation that includes the word "system"
You should message me if
You have plans to build a net-zero home in the woods and would like someone to help you collect beaver pelts for the winter and/or grow sweet potatoes.
