My self-summary
I'm an artist who isn't one, living with a wonderful wife in a relationship that we are mutually attempting to transition into a polyamorous one. My current goals in life are centered around creating experiences.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to branch out into new things and environments. Adventuring. Writing.

The goal of my life is hard to describe but generally it works a way into anything I do. In essence the idea is to evoke positive or at least interesting emotions into other people. This is a little different from say extreme improv where they just try to make interesting events.

I fail at this more than I succeed but it gives me something to do, you know?
I’m really good at
Figuring out how to engage in conversations that are near the limits of my intellectual reach. I'm technically smart, I guess. I'm pretty good at looking at things from different points of view, which is hilariously unfortunate. I'm really interested in how people get from A to B with a thought, especially rather terrible opinions.

Apparently I'm really good at dispelling evil spirits. Either they don't like me very much or they aren't real... or they're a bloody mary.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not sure it's the first thing, but people generally like me after knowing me for about 20 minutes. This is a fact I do not understand and disagree with. However, I'm an extremely jovial and affable guy, and I don't think I ever assume the worst about people, as a rule.

If you have a nihilistic view of reality then I would really like to convince you out of that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm pretty picky when it comes to food. I only eat stuff that I at least vaguely know how it is supposed to taste. I have an unreasonable fear of food poisoning due to events in the past.

I'm a huge sucker for showtunes with a upbeat message and a big band, like You'll never walk alone from Carousel or The Impossible Dream, which have so many versions they might as well be from everything.

Anime is cool sometimes. Movies I've seen recently that I like include Creed and Elvis/Nixon. I loved Kumiko the Treasure Hunter but I can't stand to watch it again because it was too depressing.
The six things I could never do without
My lovely wife.

When I tried to go camping as a boy scout I quickly discovered that indoor plumbing is something I can't really do without. Well, maybe I could, but definitely a test of patience.

There's also the internet. I can be without it for a little while but honestly every other form of communication feels inferior when you're trying to make connections with strangers who share similar interests. Like when I just NEED to know why my opinions on the popular video game "Pac-Man" are bad and wrong.

I'd like to go without soda but unfortunately It's on this list so I guess I'm committed.

At least a shred of optimism in even the worst of people.

An idea.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Words that link together in a fluid or awkward fashion. Whether or not there is something I need to do. Exciting adventures or potential activities for my free time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends, playing games, doing whatever it is there is to do (that I know about.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I absolutely adore lisps.
You should message me if
If you want to- I'm pretty friendly and unlikely to shoot you down as a person. Even if you're ridiculously boring I'd be interested to try to make you feel interesting.

Or, if you have an idea for doing something for which you have a wild guess that I haven't done.

Currently in a committed open poly marriage
