I make things, all the time. A weekend spent writing a game or building a clock is the perfect weekend. I like coffee, not for the caffeine but for the ritual of holding a hot mug in my hands, reading a book or the internet, and thinking about the world.
I'm both introverted and extroverted. I don't party much, but when I do I like to be in the thick of it, talking to everyone or dancing like an idiot. I like to overhear a conversation my friends are having, wait for just the right moment and interject with the perfect dumb joke.
I'm nonmonogamous and in a committed long-term relationship. Let me know if you want to meet my partner (hint: you do! She's great.)
To that end, I'm now working at a small biotech startup that's hoping to change the way laboratory work gets done in biology, and make it possible to do drug discovery or genetics research from your laptop in a cafe. Even if the startup doesn't work out, I think the idea is interesting enough that it deserves a shot.
I'm looking around for a laid-back circus school to join in the bay area so I can keep learning silks and trapeze. I'd love to find myself somewhere to play on a German wheel, too.
