My self-summary
I'm a curious, artistic, driven and pragmatic person who likes smart, kind, chill people.

I'm a maker/creator to the core.

I live in SF, but am in NYC for the next month building a huge floating farm (http://swaleny.org, http://biomearts.net/ecohack2016/updates/, http://biomearts.net/ecohack2016/en/).
What I’m doing with my life
I run a studio that does guerilla projections for social movements (http://www.instagram.com/saitogroup, http://www.saitogroup.info/, https://twitter.com/SaitoGroup). I augment my income by mentoring students with ADHD/autism. I organize a bi-annual digital and bio-art festival, just because. w00t.
I’m really good at
Identifying people who are smarter than me and surrounding myself with them.
The first things people usually notice about me
is that I am either having a really intense conversation with you or being very silly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Robert Rauschenberg, Krzysztof Wodiczko, Swoon, Mary Mattingly, Maya Lin, Francis Alys, CD Wright, Jen Bervin, Judith Goldman, Jenny Holzer, Robert Montgommery, Os Gemenos, Processing, Natural Language Processing, Algopop, Internet of Things, AR, Social Futurism, Decentralization, Capitalism w/o Oligarchy, Ghost in the Shell, Nausicaa, Flying Lotus, Polish Ambassador, Ursula LeGuin, Adventure Time, Hunger Games, Nausicaa, Full Metal Alchemist, Major Lazor, Grimes, etc.
The six things I could never do without
poetry
video
architecture (I feel about buildings what most people feel about music)
family
the ocean
diversity (class, race, sex, cognition, ability, etc.) (one of my best friends is blind, most of my friends are queer, etc., etc., etc.).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
language, computers, ideologies, street art, poetry, architecture, (smart) cities, survival skills, gardening, inequality, law, justice, education, my family, my friends... how the totalitarian regimes of the present are governed by hipster indifference ;p
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm really extroverted, but also very shy. Enjoy puzzling that one out. ;p
I've got some ADHD.
I've got some Aspyness (teeny bit).
I don't mind being messaged first.
I'm queer af, just not in obvious ways.
I'm very fiery, but also kind.
You should message me if
You are smart, kind, and self aware, and you like smart, kind, self aware, thoughtful/funny/strange humans.

You consider the first date, or the first several, more like low-key hang outs; in fact, you like that friends first thing.

You're calm, easy-going, solid.
