My self-summary
I am exactly what I look like: a single left-of-center, generally self-aware and slightly awkward alternative type guy who thinks he's witty. I'm heavily invested in activism and social justice work, but I try to remain easy to have a conversation with. I enjoy hearing other people talk about themselves and I like hearing stories.

I like people who challenge me to think in new ways and try new things. I'd like to date someone who likes the same thing.

I'm a transgender guy. Some people are into that, some aren't. If you aren't, just move along - no hard feelings.
What I’m doing with my life
I just graduated from grad school recently and now I do social work at a government facility. This is way less sexy than it sounds. But I do really like it.

I'm also trying to kick-start my writing, which fell by the wayside in grad school.
I’m really good at
My work. I used to be a good writer, and I'm sure I will be again once I've worked the rust out. Also cooking, I've been told.
The first things people usually notice about me
I look really young, in that way that sometimes has made strangers stare awkwardly at me and people I have dated. Sorry about that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like to read a lot and always have. I enjoy a lot of different things from all of the above - talking about it is great first date material!
The six things I could never do without
My tablet, hot sauce, things that allow me to be perceived as my actual gender, my cat (he's my buddy), books, and soap, because not having showers sounds horrific.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whatever nerdy thing I read on Wikipedia last, usually. Video games and what I'm making for dinner, often. How to avoid burnout, more than I'd like.
On a typical Friday night I am
The amount of exhaustion I feel on Friday nights has been the surest gauge to me that I am now 30. Usually I'm making dinner and drinking a beer and sometimes chilling with friends, if I have been enticed into leaving my apartment.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I refuse to stick my hand down the disposal when stuff gets stuck down there. I will get tongs. Too many horror movies.
You should message me if
If you like any of the things I have described above and want to get to know someone else who does. If you are cute, intelligent, talkative and assertive (read: a nerdy-in-a-cool-way feminist or social activist) I will consider these things a bonus.
