My self-summary
Fun-loving poly atheist seeking similar for fun, friendship, and more. East-coast transplant, but have been out here for over a decade. I'm a good conversationalist and a good listener with a strong sense of humor and a sharp mind. Honesty, conviction, integrity, and straightforwardness are important values to me. I am loyal to a fault and I respect people who mean what they say and say what they mean.

I'm a big movie and anime buff and I also enjoy reading, spending time in the ocean (body-boarding, snorkeling, scuba), hiking, some camping and weekend festivals.

What I’m doing with my life

-interesting ideas
-interesting people (I collect them!)
-business opportunities

Recently left the corporate world and am developing my own projects. It's exciting and scary at the same time.
I’m really good at
-Learning something new.
-Seeing the big picture.
-Putting together seemingly unconnected things.
-Over-thinking and over-planning.
The first things people usually notice about me
I strongly prefer substance over style. Substance without style is fine, style without substance is terrible, and substance with style is amazing.
