My self-summary
I'm smart, eccentric, kind, funny, honest, creative, intense, giving, active, loyal, and generally pretty darned resilient.

As my tangled path through a tulgey wood has had its ups and downs, I've learned a few things, not always easily, and am hence the better person for it. To wit, I know that I'm happiest when I have a delightful partner in my life to grow with, learn from, lean on and support reciprocally, so I'm hoping to sincerely and deeply connect with another soul on this, a splendid winding tramp through the damp northwest woods.

At my side already is a strange & delightful dog, who eased into my life, a victim of circumstance, becoming both my shadow and my dear friend.
What I’m doing with my life
I've struck a careful balance between my work and play and do so in an incomparable community of like-minded folk. I am striving to make fabulous things happen, preferably by organizing hordes of people to go do things grand and ridiculous. I prize play and experience. I am an extremely willing student and a natural

I'm living on a bay shaped like a saxophone
with my lovely lady and our bunnies, sugar glider, and dog. While this arrangement continues to exceed my expectations, I am poly and am looking for a new nsa sex-only relationship or two.

I'm pretty into the whole Burning Man thing, though after a
decade of going, it's turned into a much more complicated
relationship. Much like I didn't with skydiving in my 20's, I
don't confuse (as many do) my passion with hobby/community with my own identity. I find the my community essential and precious, with Participants committed to creativity, learning, sharing, experiencing, co-creating and generally manifesting a closer-knit-than-bog-standard lifestyle for each other. This affords me many opportunities to create and lead, which I do often, sometimes with abandon, and fortunately, usually with success.

I strongly believe that one should never stop learning. Right now, I'm trying to learn to Kitesurf and play the bass guitar. Both are awkward, powerful, and challenging.

And I *love* to make people laugh.
I’m really good at
learning, teaching, skiing, juggling, bridge, cycling, running, laughing, reading, cooking, managing, DJing, skydiving, costuming, communicating, trusting, ranting, raving, playing, sleeping, speaking with an accent, whistling with my hands, public speaking, ...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
All of these lists (except movies -- though I enjoy them, I don't watch many these days) could go on almost forever.... Nevertheless I shall persevere...

Books: Infinite Jest - David Foster Wallace, The Play of the Hand at Bridge - Watson, Diamond Age - Stephenson, HHGttG - Adams, American Pastoral - Roth, Still Life with Woodpecker - Robbins, Catcher in the Rye - Salinger, Charlie & the Chocolate Factory - Dahl, PIKHAL - Shulgin, Life After God - Copeland, Cowboys are my Weakness - Houston, Enders Game - Card, ... (Oh, and the New Yorker is my magazine of choice...)

Movies: Dr. Strangelove, Pulp Fiction, Heathers, Go, Blade Runner, Up, ...

Shows: While I've enjoyed a few series like Deadwood, Battlestar Galactica, Babylon 5, and the like, my home has no dedicated TV; it is a very low priority.

Music: (I've had a strongly electronic bent for the last decade, but I am fairly open minded to most things; this list is wildly incomplete.) Psytrance, Shpongle, Thievery Corp, Random Rab, Younger Brother, Phish, Shostakovich, Dire Straits, Moxy Fruvous, Cake, ELO, Rush, Simon & Garfunkel, Indigo Girls, Bach, Postal Service, ... (divbyzero.de & Groove Salad on somafm are in heavy rotation on the streaming station front) (I admit to having a hard time with most punk and hiphop -- I'm not an angry person, and I don't sync well with music that is.)

Food: Chilis, anchovies, avocados, beets, biscuits, okonomiyaki, tamales, sushi, pho, lamb, you-name-it, really... I've been running low-carb this year, and it's been a great change. Lately, it's been all about scrambling eggs in duck fat and olive oil.
The six things I could never do without
trust, rhythm, Google Reader, witty banter, spreadsheets, & a warm heavy duvet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
community, Cloud Computing, and glowing juggling balls.
On a typical Friday night I am
frequently at home chilling with boo and playing music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm reacquainting myself with my inner introvert. Weird. I thought he was an aberration, a maladaptation... now I just don't know.
You should message me if
* you are looking for an occasional hookup

* you have something (or many things) to teach & share... I am certain to return the favor.

* you are not an INFP (meyers-briggs); my recent experience with such makes me think I need to be around E's and T's a little more, though a sufficiently self-aware INFP might be okay, because (darn it!) they are so wonderfully passionate.

* you are naturally verbally inclined (scrabble, improv, banter, etc)
