My self-summary
I'm as comfortable being on a stage as behind a chess board. I'm a performer that leans towards being an introvert. I'm generally fairly personable and, I hope, engaging, but I'm quite shy. I have a creative writing degree and I work in the tech industry.

I run a youtube channel where I talk about topics that interest me in the context of juggling, or juggle to music chosen by me or a viewer. I like to dance particularly in the popping style with a heavy focus on robot.

I try to make it out to a show to listen to bleepy bloopy music and perform at least once if not twice a month.

I'm in an open/poly/non-monogamous relationship with my gorgeous wife thebubbleses. Just to clarify, we aren't looking for someone(s) to date together. We've been doing the open relationship thing for the last 3 years. It works quite well for us.
What I’m doing with my life
Between running a youtube channel, working in the tech industry and being a dad, life is awesome if somewhat busy.

I've been working on my chess game over the last few months. I try to practice juggling at least a bit every week. I play a bit of video games and try to keep up with some television.

I do a bit of amateur astronomy from time to time. I had a great experience bringing my telescope out to a festival last summer. My favorite interaction was with a woman who looked at Saturn through the scope and then accused me of putting a sticker on the end of it.
I’m really good at
There's those skills I've mentioned above, which I'm at least reasonable at. I'd say outside of those, I'm fairly empathetic and tend to relate well to most people.

I think my best skill though is probably saying yes. I mean this in the way that it's taught in improv. When someone suggests something in improv, saying no is usually not the best way to create an interesting scene. In life, I try to say yes to new experiences even if they are uncomfortable. I also try to avoid saying no to adventures. I think it's really easy to stay locked in a bubble of technology and relative comfort, but it seems so much more fun to take risks and walk outside of the familiar. This doesn't mean that I'm incapable of saying no, I learn more about myself every day and I won't stray into territory that I've already confirmed isn't my jam. Like say, poker. It's not a bad game, it's just not my thing
The first things people usually notice about me
The most common comment is on my eyes being piercing. Aside from that, probably that I'm almost always moving. I'm a moderately sized ball of energy that does it's best to stay contained.

The six things I could never do without
Video games
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Science, work, juggling, dancing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually at home with wifey and kidlet. Saturday is usually the play day. But it depends, we might be out at a show, or hanging with friends playing board games. In general though, I think Friday tend to be more a recuperation day than anything.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't fix or construct anything to save my life.

I have a twin sister.

I got fired from a fast food job because... sometimes, you are just bad at things, even working fast food ><.
You should message me if
You want to hangout and play a game, or go to a party. You want to relax and talk about the stars or the latest sci-fi. You love a particular author or poem and I have to hear it.

I'd say that from a purely functional perspective, the answer to this question is that you don't mind hanging out with someone with a crazy schedule. I enjoy so many activities and people that my life can be pretty hectic. That being said, I certainly have time, just not like, 3-5 days a week to hangout sort of time.
