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.
