Make money in technical operations but, studied fine art which did not teach me how to pay rent. So, started as a graphics prostitute in Commercial photography, advertising and design before walking away to pursue a career as a Geek.
Prefer to talk in person. Not so much on the phone. Physical interaction is important. Great conversationalist and listener. Bloody fantastic at cocktail parties. Accomplished storyteller.
Addicted to two wheels; bicycles and motorcycles. Spin Coach and active road tripper.
Enjoy reading the NYT on Sundays and listen to NPR. I have Karl Kassel's voice on my voicemail.
Respectful. Chivalrous. Acutely self aware.
We interrupt this summary with a little rant: I have been on OKC for over two years. Been on some good dates. Been on a whole bunch of bad ones. No lasting relationships. A lot of OMG this is so not right.
Obviously, I have not found what I am looking for or I wouldn't be here. I am more than a little jaded by the process. This is SF, the land of unconventional relationships. The question that begs asking is what am I looking for? The perfect Partner? Existence of this is questionable. Sex? Sure I like sex. I am pretty good at it and I know a thing or two. Children? No Children? Not an issue. Monogamous? Non-monogamous? Bi? Poly? Traditional? Kinky? English as a second language? I don't know anymore.
At this point, there is no script. no grand plan. I have walked off the reservation. And now back to the regularly scheduled program.
I have a great job. It sends me to china. It affords me expensive toys and is almost all consuming but I love it. Work life balance is a challenge.
Outside the professional realm, I like to photograph, read, play video games, eat, ride motorcycles and laugh.
Language. Words and the combinations of them are a canvas that I never tire of painting. Some think I am detail oriented and meticulous. I think it is mild undiagnosed OCD
When at the gym, tattoos.
I am into music in a big way. When you are teaching five spin classes a week, you tend to go through a crap-ton of music. Arcade Fire to Frank Zappa.
I am a total food snob. Love the cheap hole in the wall set your taste buds on fire dives that may or may not be on the health departments radar as much as the four-star can't get a reservation without sacrificing a first born. And I cook; breakfast, lunch and dinner. Have Wok, will travel (pretty good with a skillet as well as open flame).
Chicago style hot dogs, NY bagel and a schmeer, Pizza you can fold, Burma Superstar and Strawberry Pop Tarts (did you know that they are flammable! Do NOT leave em in the toaster while showering)
Chocolate. Life is not worth living without chocolate. And coffee. And Sticky Buns - The breakfast pastry that is.
Food. Shelter. Sex. (not necessarily in that order)
Like to laugh and love and play.
If you think motorcyclists are naughty.
