My self-summary
Disclaimer: I am neither vegan nor a Velociraptor.

Functional without being boring, crazy but not destructive. I take pride in being kind and speaking gently. I love high brow art and gourmet food as much as mosh pits and dive bars.

Life has been an interesting ride so far. I've had an unusual life and like to think it's given me some perspective. I am a fun loving, adventure seeking, free speaking guy who can keep you engaged in conversation for days (unless you want to talk about sports or TV shows, in this I will fail).

I enjoy a loving, caring, ethically open marriage with primatology. If that's not how you roll, that's ok. We can be friends. I'm very happy with my romantic life and currently prioritize finding activity partners rather than dating, but if the chemistry is right, I'm happy to try for more.

TL/DR: GGG. Mostly harmless.
What I’m doing with my life

I am unusually passionate about insects.

I am hyper aware of my frailty and mortality which has resulted in an unbridled lust for life.

I have a fulfilling full-time job as a science teacher and several hobbies.

Conversation
Exploration
Empathy

Being GGG
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm foreign but they could never guess where I am from.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I think that the most influential authors in my life are Julio Cortázar, Jorge Luis Borges, Umberto Eco, Virginia Woolf, Neil Gaiman, Kurt Vonnegut, Alejandra Pizarnik, Douglas Adams, Edward O. Wilson, Jared Diamond, Marguerite Duras and Kobayashi Issa.

Movies: The Colors Trilogy, Kung Fu Hustle, the movies of Akira Kurosawa, Jim Jarmusch, Jon Cassavetes, Ray Harrihausen. I'm a sucker for cheesy fantasy films.

Music: Mostly metal, also jazz, classical, folk, soul, blues and a pinch of hip hop. There are several South American singer songwriters who can make me cry. I love Fado, Tango and The Blues. I never get tired of Andrés Calamaro, Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen. Keith Jarrett for life!

Shows: Samurai Champloo, Game of Thrones, Daredevil, Westworld, anything by Chuck Jones.

Food: An adventurous eater, I am always eager to learn how to make or enjoy great food. I am a decent baker and good cook. I love spices and well crafted beer.

Webcomics: XKCD, The Order of the Stick, Oglaf, Questionable Content.

Podcasts: Radiolab, This American Life, Savage Podcast, The Moth.
Six things I could never do without
Love
Passion
Science

Late night conversations

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Am I doing the right thing?

How much I've changed over the years.

The short stories of J. L. Borges.

Systems of oppression. Invisible cages.
On a typical Friday night I am
doing the usual things that people in Brooklyn do.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a sitzpinkler, and proud of it.

Also, I enjoy the music of Manowar, not even in a hip, ironic sense. I honest to the gods like it.
