My self-summary
A scientific mind with a hippie heart. Lover of the arts, anti-pretense. These days, I'm drawn to authentic connection, aliveness, and beauty in all their forms. I converse easily amongst academic types but have opened up my range a lot. In relationships, I like to be warm and goofy, and meander through topics big and small as if we were slightly drunk by default. Note the 'as if'
What I’m doing with my life
- working in bioenergy r&d + my software consulting business
- playing music at gospel church (little old ladies in big hats), speakeasies, funk/rnb jams, reggae festivals. Recent highlight: opening for the Isley Bros at Mountain Winery
- salsa dancing, exploring random Bay Area scenes with a Borat mindset
- traveling to fairly unusual places

Rocking a part-time schedule: my master plan is to have 4 months off every year

I'm into meditation and deep breathing as well, but giving up steak is not going to happen
I’m really good at
keeping my word, bizarre yet accurate analogies, touch
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Radiohead, Joni Mitchell, The Smiths, Schubert lieder, Stevie Wonder, Brad Mehldau, Louis Ck, Raymond Carver, Chekhov, Marc Maron WTF, Annie Hall, and yes, Anchorman
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My dna is probably 10% Pooh bear, but I can get a little dark
You should message me if
You are sweet, creative yet down-to-earth, and march to your own drummer
