My self-summary
Looking for positive, open-minded individuals who have respect for themselves (and for others) for genuine friendship and adventure.

Fair warning, I am only on okcupid once in a blue moon.
What I’m doing with my life
Nerding out big time (professionally, and in my "free time").

If you want to get together and drink too much caffeine while talking about urban planning, restorative justice, food systems, stories as data, CPTED, placemaking vs. gentrification, urban form, the economics of happiness -- we will be best friends.
I’m really good at
Kissing, taking my vitamins regularly, shaking my money maker, and embarrassing you in public.
The first things people usually notice about me
HAIR
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some fiction: Middlesex, White Noise, Autobiography of Red, Written on the Body, Beyond the Pale, Xenogenisis.
Some non-fiction: The End of Gay: and the death of heterosexuality, Sex at Dawn, Zami: A New Spelling Of My Name, A Continent for Taking

I am currently reading Family Properties: How the struggle over race and real estate transformed Chicago and urban America. It may be the best book I have ever read.
The six things I could never do without
Avocados
Cats
Laughter
Kissing
Women
Chocolate
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking on those ill-structured concepts which define our "human" existence: sex, gender, race, nationality, class, creed; and about community, our cultures and our counter-cultures; on churches, governments, the rule of law and methods of establishing order. I think about how people categorize, how they define, how they institute their zany ideas, and how they very seldom seem to accomplish much more than self-deception. I think about how people are just scared, creative, confused, intelligent, emotional, self-absorbed, beautiful animals.

O. And shoes. I spend a considerable amount of time thinking about shoes.
