My self-summary
I am a world-travelling native Seattleite who grew up in California. I make my living writing software, and I fill my life with friends, creative projects, and adventures.

I am enthusiastically social, and feel fortunate to be part of a big web of smart, interesting, creative, compassionate people. Most of us know each other through Burning Man; I don't go every year, but it's been a big part of my life for a long time, and I love the way my friends get together to make awesome things happen.

I spend a lot of my free time on creative activities. I've picked up a lot of little skills over the years, and whether it's sewing, electronics, music, carpentry, metalwork, drawing, writing, or photography, I'm always making something - or, more typically, a bunch of different somethings, at once.

I don't think of myself as being especially athletic, but I love to dance, and I spend a lot of time outdoors. I love to ski in the winter and hike in the summer; I've felt at home in the mountains since the year my family lived in Yosemite while my dad worked as a park ranger.

I am incessantly curious, constantly reading, with a never-ending queue of books on my nightstand. If I ever come over to your house for some reason I will absolutely sneak a peek at your bookshelf to see if I can learn anything interesting about the things that interest you.

Music has always been a significant part of my life. I grew up on classical piano, with a few years of sax and clarinet on the side, then branched out into synthesizers. A few years playing live industrial music evolved into a solo live-PA project. These days I'm a DJ, spinning either psytrance or glitch-hop depending on the party.
What I’m doing with my life
You'll have to figure that out when I'm done with it.
I’m really good at
Compiler engineering. Photography. Writing. Explaining complicated systems in simple terms. Reading body language. Improvising. Making guests feel welcome. Baking brownies. Dancing all night.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am tall, my hair is an unnatural color, and my grin is a little bit crooked.
Six things I could never do without
Air, water, food, shelter, love, and creative expression.

- Okay, that's cheating. Real answer:

Coffee, sex, music, friends, excitement, art.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The foundational principles and political implications of software architectures. Music production and creative mixing. Friends I haven't seen in a while and ways of engineering occasions to meet up with them. Explosives and flammability in general. Origins of and relationships between words. Ways one might climb up things. Giant sculptural art projects. Small intimate experiential art projects. Subversive economic structures. Places to visit and people to visit them with. Projects for improving my house.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out on the town for dinner, drinks, and dancing. At a friend's house for cards and whiskey. Hosting a dinner party. Something like that.
You should message me if
You are hot, adventurous, confident, extroverted, creative, and at least a bit weird. Or if you think the conversation would be interesting. Or if we've already met somewhere (hi!).
The two of us
