The first things people usually notice about me
Lately, people have been asking if I'm an artist. I don't know where that's coming from but it's flattering. I can dabble with the best of them: dance, graphic design, writing, photography. Oh, and I have a degree in architecture; that counts for something, right?

Six things I could never do without
things to climb
a comfy spot to sleep
a scenic view
thoughtful and imaginative conversation
making out
a Rubik's cube
I spend a lot of time thinking about
social & cultural systems, education, psychology, envisioning humanity in the distant future
On a typical Friday night I am
Lately, my weeknights have been pretty social so I'm happy to relax at home once Friday rolls around. Or I might visit friends or go out; there's no routine.
You should message me if
right now, the digits on the clock add up to less than 14. Or if you want to dance, or start a chess rivalry. Or if you think you can wow me with your charm.

Bonus points if you:
have visible tattoos
sport some wholly unnatural color of hair
listen to Savage Love, Radio Lab, and MBMBAM podcasts
have style...however you choose to define that
The two of us
