My self-summary
"Feminism is hard. Let's go shopping!"

the mission of my life is threefold:

1. be as strong as Korra, as resourceful as Asami, and as beautiful as Bolin

2. use my superpowers (Listening To People and Making Things) to buy iced lattes and help others

3. politely seduce cuties into pulling my hair & calling me "good boy"

For greater detail about any of these three items, kindly refer to my Live Memoirs (or "blog" as the kids say) on sleepysamurai.tumblr.com
What I’m doing with my life
i run a BOOMING TECH EDUCATION BUSINESS (aka: literally just me teaching people about computers) and have lots of nerdy side projects. at least one student has lauded me as "an actual wizard"

i also fence and give talks at tech/kink/gaming events with topics like "How to Build Facebook in a Weekend" and "How to Charm and Delight Others With Your Foot Fetish"
I’m really good at
lifting heavy things

explaining complex things

petting fuzzy things
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
for your convenience, I have arranged my faves into thematic groupings:

the Pseudointellectual But Friendly Dilettante: Chicken Tikka Masala, Kiki's Delivery Service, Dark Souls, and Italo Calvino's Invisible Cities

the Consumer: Supernatural, plain cheese pizza with a Coke, Fifth Element, and every soundtrack ever made by Hans Zimmer

the Sci-Fi Mogul: Farscape, Charles Stross' Accelerando, Daft Punk & Anamanaguchi, Thai iced tea, and Mass Effect

the Problematic Fave: Octavia Butler's Lilith's Brood, Archer & Venture Bros, Carpenter Brut, street meat, Bill Murray's Groundhog Day, and Transmetropolitan
The six things I could never do without
0. cats
1. rain sounds
2. a full night's sleep
3. a cornucopia of sketchbooks and pens and inks and oh
4. Good Conversation
5. an excuse to play with swords (eg. fencing)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- privilege, intersectionality, empathy
- better ways to teach variables and syntax and functions and
- butts
- sad robots wondering if they have a soul
On a typical Friday night I am
pick one:

- getting a little high and coming up with new business ideas

- getting ready for a fencing tournament tomorrow morning

- fervently hacking away on a code project

- playing League of Legends, Dwarf Fortress, Terraria, or Dark Souls, most likely while broadcasting my hijinks on Twitch and/or swearing profusely with friends over Skype
You should message me if
- you can have long conversations about everything from privilege to pizza over text/IM

- you are a total badass in search of a Connie to your Steven (or a Pearl to your Rose or a Ruby to your Sapphire or...)

- you do non-monogamy because you know that with enough deftness in Google Calendaring, it's possible to *feel* like you have your partners all to yourself even when you don't

- you'd like to rough up and/or boss around a charming dreamer-entrepreneur with nice arms, a dulcet whimper, and a plethora of submissive buttons to press

- you've been meaning to learn more about computers/programming/tech but keep getting stuck or dunno where to start and just want someone to give a sane explanation of wtf variables are
