My self-summary
I'm a nature-loving city-dweller with a kind heart, a love of socially and environmentally worthwhile tech, a witty sense of humor, and a thirst for new experiences. I tend to be on the quiet side -- I've trained myself to be outgoing, and I always love to meet new people, but I'm most definitely an introvert and need time to myself to recharge. Also I'm a huge nerd, so there's that.
What I’m doing with my life
Working part-time as an independent contractor/consultant doing early stage design and prototyping work for cleantech startups and part-time on my own project. Other than that, getting into rock climbing, playing tennis, and just generally enjoying life in the city!
The first things people usually notice about me
.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Science fiction, mostly, but ya'know, good science fiction. Books that explore the human condition in the framework of a science fiction concept, or, in the best sense of the word, make you feel small and fill you with awe.

TV: Doctor Who. Futurama. Arrested Development. Better off Ted. Psych. House. Daily Show/Colbert Report. Sherlock.

Movies: Similar to my taste in books. Interstellar. Children of Men. District 9. Batman Begins / Dark Knight / Dark Knight Rises. Serenity. Most comedies. The occasional drama/sentimental movie. Pretty much anything Pixar.

Music: Classic Rock. Modern/Alt Rock. Electronic/Pop under the right circumstances.

Food: I'm not picky. I'll at least try pretty much anything, and chances are I'll like it. I am trying to make my way towards vegetarianism though, for ethical/environmental/health reasons.
The six things I could never do without
Apart from the universal (friends, family, food, air, water, shelter, clothing), and in no particular order:
1.) My tennis raquets
2.) A good book (now meaing E-book)
3.) My passport
4.) That excellent cheese from the Civic Center farmer's market
5.) Interaction with nature
6.) A towel (bonus points if you get the reference!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
All things sustainable; environmentally, socially, and economically. Ethics/morality and what kind of worldview makes for long-term, sustainable happiness.

...or food. Or travel/adventure plans. Or a variety of cute animals (I really miss my dog). Really, lots of different stuff. I'm frequently in my head.
On a typical Friday night I am
Smiling and laughing with a few good friends, hopefully! The context doesn't really matter. Or, alternatively, recharging at home with a book/Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a kidney transplant recipient. Which is not nearly as big a deal as most people would think, but it's certainly made parts of my life interesting! And educational!
You should message me if
you are a kind, intelligent, curious, thoughtful, and laid back person looking to meet new people, have new experiences, and keep on learning new things! You enjoy witty, irreverent, intellectual banter! And/or you have a dog I can play with. Or, generally, if you think we'd get along and want to hang out.
