My self-summary
Looking for a partner in illegal activity, who can work hard and play hard, comfortably equal in a tux AND jeans.

“…nobody on this planet ever really chooses each other. I mean, it's all a question of quantum physics, molecular attraction, and timing. Why, there are laws we don't understand that bring us together and tear us apart...” -- Annie Savoy (Susan Sarandon in Bull Durham)

Am deeply eclectic: a reader, a writer, a designer, a bicycler, a mac guy, a tall guy. I'm impressed by: brains, talent, style, curiosity, fitness and humor-- anywhere on the continuum from dry wit to goofiness to snark.
What I’m doing with my life
Perfecting my Ira Glass imitation.

The six things I could never do without
Mac/Internet
Non-coffee caffeine
Art/Design
Yoga
The dailies, the weeklies, the monthlies.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
In the morning: can I get to work and back on the bike without being rained on?
On a typical Friday night I am
At the movies.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
