I have geek tendencies (I used to work at Microsoft doing speech recognition.) Since then I have delivered sailboats from Hawaii, attended the Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding, built a mast and other repairs on a 55 year old wooden schooner, sailed the schooner up in Canada for the summers, and spent a lot of time in the woods. I did a primitive living skills apprenticeship with Earthwalk Northwest in Issaquah. In 2008 I moved back to Canada and am now in Victoria, BC doing a PhD at UVic. I also still spend some time on my boat and spend a lot of time at the Victoria Makerspace.
I'm also back and forth to San Francisco a fair amount, where I teach at Singularity University and hang out in South San Francisco on a boat there. If you see my city change, that's why! Just wait a bit and I'm sure I'll change it back (Unless I forget, so say hi anyway!)
I'd love to meet fun people for dating, sailing, kayaking, camping, cooking, foraging, or any combination of the above.
I date all flavours of people. And particularly enjoy people who don't entirely colour inside the lines.
movies: Lord of the rings, Y tu mama tambien, Amelie
music: not too fond of most rap or country, but aside from that I listen to most everything
foods: curry. yum. I have a host of recently discovered food allergies, so I'm eating lots of seafood and veggies these days. Since that's what I can collect from the sea and forest it works out best that way anyways!
