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.
- Okay, that's cheating. Real answer:
Coffee, sex, music, friends, excitement, art.
