My self-summary
I am a professional hobby collector with a specialization in entrepreneurship. Which is a nice way of putting that I make silly internet startups while combatting my inability to bring many of my ideas to fruition. Some days I'm more successful than others.

I try not to take myself too seriously.

I am ethically non-monogamous and recently moved to the San Francisco bay-area with my primary partner.

From New England originally, most recently having called Boston my home.
What I’m doing with my life
I've spent a good chunk of my life so far running away from the poverty of rural Maine; finally landing In Portland (Maine), Boston, and most recently the bay-area.

I'm currently President of a small company building products focused on enterprise mobility and BYOD... but I just signed a contract with a large search engine, doing open-source work, documentation, advocacy and outreach. Gotta keep the lights on ;)

In my spare time I enjoy exploring the local restaurant scene, drinking tasty brews, going to meetups with developers, dancing my ass off with fellow kinksters, and attempting to resist the urge to run off to the bay area(edit, couldn't resist.)

My personal motivations are quite modest. I will change the world in some meaningful way. I'm still working on the how bit.
I’m really good at
Having awesome genes (seriously I checked), having awesome jeans (selvage denim), knowing my homophones, picking up new skills, cooking, impressing parents, proclaiming "that's what she said" at opportune moments, dressing myself, getting myself into interesting situations, procrastination, refactoring my life for optimal serendipity, and spending all my money.
The first things people usually notice about me
How I dress I imagine—usually rockin french cuffs, designer jeans, cowboy boots or wingtips; and if the weather permits a car coat or jacket w/pocket square. I like looking snazzy!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
If there has been any question thus far, let it be a secret be no longer: I might be a bit of geek.

A few of my favorite things: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Mighty Boosh, Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Farscape, Frisky Dingo, Archer, Monty Python, Good Eats, Top Chef, Doctor Who, Last Week Tonight, GoT, Star Trek, Children of Men, V for Vendetta, Clint Mansell, Shiny Toy Guns, Gorillaz, Daft Punk, Bond, ES Posthumus, most classical or jazz I hear, earl grey, Guinness, curry, nigiri, gin, falafel, COFFEE, and holy fuck do I love WHISKY.

Anything with Simon Pegg, Nathan Fillion, or Matt Berry.

Is this where I should mention that I'd marry Randall Munroe if only he'd say yes?
The six things I could never do without
VIM, coffee, witty banter, hobbies to collect, sustenance of some form, and challenges to overcome.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Solving the worlds problems, how pathetic I am on a cosmic scale, deriving simple rules from complex behavior, my current startup, what my next open-source project will involve, typography, teleportation, what I'd do if zombies attacked, fun activities involving rope, whatever future gizmo the Apple rumor mill is talking about, why everyone on Hacker News is so damn negative, and when/where my next adventure might be.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out at my local bar, drinking IPAs, chatting with the staff, laughing with (sometimes at) locals, reading my very social justice oriented twitter feed, and drunkenly blabbering about math, science, feminism, or **INSERT LIBERAL CAUSE OF THE WEEK HERE** with my wife Krutahn.

As midnight passes, you'll find me confusing myself over use of temporal nouns, "tomorrow? do you mean tomorrow tomorrow or today tomorrow?" and attempting to preemptively cure my saturday hangover with pickle juice and smaht water. It works 100% of the time, 40% of the time... or something like that.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't have big toenails, as in toenails at all, on my big toes.

Oh and check me out on FL (same user-name) if that might be a point of compatibility, if not no big deal.
