My self-summary
Botanist, busker, storyteller.

I'm partnered in a non-monogamous relationship and looking to date others in similar situations or those accepting of consensual non-monogamy. I value transparency and reciprocity. I also value humility and those willing to step outside the echo chamber from time to time.

Music plays a big role in my life. But so do other things that make my mind happy.
What I’m doing with my life
.....or what it's doing to me.

I've spent most of my academic and professional life working in the fields of plant ecology, conservation and ethnobiology. Did field work in Michoacan, Mexico as an excuse to learn Spanish.

I've played music part-time for a big part of my life. Now, I focus on the accordion and think that this often maligned instrument is making a bold comeback.

I ran NCAA cross country and middle distance track & field once upon a time. My masochistic tendencies have mellowed since then.

I advocate for Lyme disease sufferers and work in raising awareness about this largely ignored epidemic.
I’m really good at
Reading people. Punnery and word play. Boggle. Popping bubble wrap. Identifying wild plants. Identifying bias, double standards and hypocrisy. Playing sad songs on the accordion.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Fly-Truffler, Decomposition: A Music Manifesto, How to Talk Dirty and Influence People

Music: Steve Reich, Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, Taraf de Haidouks, The Magnetic Fields, John Zorn, Doc Watson, Django Reinhardt, Bulgarian wedding band music
Six things I could never do without
This question is so 2004.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the hows and whys.
On a typical Friday night I am
with my ear to the ground, listening for a good time.
You should message me if
you have a high emotional IQ. Also if you're comfortable being candid about what you want and what matters in your life.

I understand that the male/female ratio on okc results in some strange dynamics. Men write countless messages that will never be returned. And women sift through countless messages that say little or nothing.

So, if something about me makes you smile or arouses your curiosity, reach out and say hello.
The two of us
