I've always been fascinated with how and why things work and spent a large portion of my childhood disassembling anything that ran on electricity. I grew up on an island and have a deep personal connection to the sea.
I've appeared on the food network not once but twice and won neither time. My cooking is alright.
Work-wise I'm pushing forward with two career paths I'm extremely passionate about -- Film industry art department, and interactive tech / live lighting / installation design. What that means is some days I'm writing lighting control software and audio reactive visuals, and some days I'm turning an empty stage into a 1920s basement. I'm fortunate to be finding success in things that I started doing for fun and I am constantly stoked to be doing what I do.
Terrible at remembering where I parked my car, set down my keys, and going to bed early enough.
Books: Oryx and Crake (Margaret Atwood), Hemingway, Anthony Bourdain, really terrible 70s paperback fantasy anthologies with a special emphasis on Piers Anthony. Currently reading Neil Gaiman's American Gods.
Music: I'm on an 80s futurism kick right now with Com Truise and M83 in heavy rotation. I love a lot of niche electronica that you'll either tolerate, learn to love, or geek out with me because you're into the same stuff - Machinedrum, Jimmy Edgar, Tycho, Bop, etc.
Shows: If I had to paint with a broad brush it'd be science fiction and anything Tina Fey is involved in, but if it means junk food and blanket forts I'm totally into that show you love to binge on netflix too.
I'm the only person on okcupid who's never been to Machu Picchu.
Bonus points for adventurous eaters, animal lovers, rooftop drinking, arts and crafts, film photography, long conversations, comfortable silences, and intellectual curiosity.
