I'm a recent transplant to Seattle, having come here to stay close to family and start a new career and a new chapter. I'm a PUNK, Professional Uncle No Kids. I see my niece everyday and it's sound profoundly satisfying to see her grow and learn and to be someone she smiles at.
I'm finding my way in this new place and looking for someone to share ideas, explorations, warmth and growth with.
- Guns, Germs, and Steel
- Born to Run
- So many different books on biology and evolution
- East of Eden
- For Whom the Bell Tolls
- Almost everything Kurt Vonnegut wrote
Movies and Shows
I confess that too much junk works its way in. But some of it is actually really good.
- Game of Thrones
- Black Mirror
- Family Guy
- Rick and Morty
- Clips of witty late night pseudo-news comedy shows
I enjoy music most when others around me with good taste put it on. I'm not good at discovering new music. I loved grunge and alternative rock in high school and college. My years growing up abroad gave me a love for Los Fabulosos Cadillacs and The Tragically Hip. I spent a few years dancing to electronica with an eclectic bunch in San Francisco. My latest appreciation is for jazz.
I use to take pride in saying that I ate everything. But then I found out what gluten was doing to me and now I'm one of those goddamn people. Early years in Mexico gave me an enduring love/need for spice and having the good fortune to have traveled to so many places I'm well aware of how many radically different ways deliciousness can manifest.
Time in nature
- Some lovely idea. Like Basic Income or endosymbiosis or aquascaping or Buddhism or health or evolution or epigenetics or technological change.
