I am bisexual, polyamorous, sex-positive/consent-positive, feminist, and introverted. I am a programmer (excuse me, Software Engineer), a cyclist when convenient (and a bus commuter when not), a lapsed archer, and a crafter. I grew up in Colorado, bounced back the west for a while, moved to Seattle in 2010, and love it here enough to settle down. I like the combination of a city compact and populous enough to have real conversations about density and transit, yet close enough to wild lands that environmental concerns are kept visible.
Listening without judging. Keeping secrets and promises. Erring on the side of not being creepy.
Indecision. Staying home.

- A large, warm bed, and eight hours of sleep. If you think I'm distant when I'm well-rested, you should see me when I haven't slept enough. (P.S. Cuddling is a more-than-acceptable substitute for sleep.)
- Time alone, or near enough. If I don't feel comfortable with silence in your presence, I will want time away from you. Don't take it personally.
- Intellectual stimulation. Jigsaw puzzles, board games, word or logic puzzles, something meaty to read.
- A lifestyle that doesn't rely on an automobile. The less I can drive the better ... even though I enjoy driving. I've also been getting more comfortable on a motorcycle.
- Something to do with my hands. Knitting, chainmaille, reading, cooking, video games, something new.
- (bonus item) The occasional dose of good-natured absurdity.
I paint my toenails, but never wear open-toed shoes.
