My self-summary
Workaholic. Asshole. Engineer. Animator. Musician. Curator. My life goal is to build a large scale indie amusement park for art therapy through psychological/existential terror for adults that also serves as a retirement home. The motto for my life is "Create the world you want to die in." I'm totally playing but I'm totally serious.

I'm in a poly relationship with this beautiful woman, and we are looking for a new compatible person or a couple to invite into our relationship as an equal and join us on adventures. We're ALSO looking for collaborators: artists, nerds, musicians, developers, carpenters, photographers, filmmakers, bartenders, DJs, VJs, friends.
What I’m doing with my life
I am the programming director for a New Media Gallery that specializes in exhibitions of indie games and experimental audio visual performances. I'm currently renovating a warehouse, animating two music videos, recording an album, building a GPS-powered mobile app, and working at a tech startup.

I do what I love, and I love what I do.
I’m really good at
If you beat me at tetris then I'll do whatever you say. If you lose, you have to do whatever I say.
The first things people usually notice about me
I got big thick-rimmed glasses right now, so people usually yell "Hipster Fag" at me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My mother owns a bookstore, I learned what a hoarder is firsthand. I don't usually like to listen to the same music twice because there is more profound content created every day than could ever be consumed in a lifetime. But right now I'm digging: Black Mirror, Rick and Morty, Le1f, Phillip Glass, Paper Rad, Funky Forest, Synecdoche New York, Lightning Bolt, David Lynch, Charlie Kaufman, Studio Ghibli, Murakami, Wind Up Bird Chronicles, Tarkovsky, Enter the Void, "Godel, Escher, Bach", Kafka, Beckett, Hemingway, Haneke, Funny Games, The Selfish Gene, Steve Reich, Terry Riley, Brian Eno, Tangerine Dream, Broadcast, Talking Heads, Flying Lotus, Goblin, Tame Impala, OOIIOO, Boredoms, Disasterpeace, Yellow Magic Orchestra, Hudson Mohawke, Grimes, D'eon, Kraftwerk, Mahjongg, Boards of Canada, Erik Satie, Chopin, Adventure Time, Handmaid's Tale

Really appreciating the art of indie videogames: If you haven't heard of Inside , get a copy now, wait for a rainy night, light up a joint, and thank me later. The Witness, Everyone's Gone to the Rapture, Towerfall, Swapper, Limbo, Life is Strange, Firewatch Been getting really into VR Horror. Trying to make it through A Chair in a Room while in an altered state.

also if the ownership model of monogamy ( forced security ) and traditional dating has ever seemed absurd to you, you should probably read The Ethical Slut or Sex at Dawn
Six things I could never do without
Failure, Success, Playing, Obstacles, Seasons, Mortality
I spend a lot of time thinking about
whether I am dead or not. If life ends or keeps going. The seasons of consciousness. Success and death and how neither of them matter in the long run. We are not a product of the the big bang. We are not a result. We are part of a process of expansion that is still happening. We change what the universe is and we define what the universe is. 'We' are currently a part of the universe that observes itself through emergent mixtures of cultures that signal each other like lightning bugs in a summer field.

Political parties, sports, religions, or other any kind of fanboys all depress me. People can't seem to self reflect that tribalism is a primitive evolutionary biproduct that we should have transcended. Any idea based on a concept of sacredness is one that I will probably disagree with.

The plot of 90% of drama/romances don't make sense if you don't rely on an axiom that affection is a scarce resource and a protagonist is entitled to be the sole receiver of said affection.

I'm a techno-optimist that supports automation and basic income. Jobs lost due to automation is always a net positive. The health of a society shouldn't be determined by how many people are employed. 100% unemployment is a utopia.
On a typical Friday night I am
At a gallery, writing code, drawing, composing music, playing the drums, or stoned and trying an indie videogame from my indoor hot tub
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't get jealous. I like to share ;) look up compersion
You should message me if
*You're going to see Tim and Eric this weekend.

**You want to see the Murakami show.

You make art, carpentry, music, movies, games, or write code. I'm always looking for new stuff. The more experimental and genre-defying, the better. Who knows, We could have chemistry for collaboration or I can potentially fit you into a show.

You are open-minded and curious. You're comfortable talking about what you want and you'd like to share your dream or fantasy. There's a good chance I can help.

You want to playtest experimental games in development.

You want to have a playful duel or wager with me.

You want to to play virtual reality pictionary with our HTC Vive

You want to netflix from our indoor hot tub

DO NOT MESSAGE ME IF:
Your message is nothing more than a generic greeting. I can't express how irritating an inbox full of "hey."'s is. I won't be able to tell if you're lazy or just boring.
