My self-summary
[Disclosure: I have an awesome girlfriend and an open relationship!]

Enjoying the incredible creative energy of the city, its endless series of museums, and its plethora of coffee shops.

Comfortable with a local roast or a Starbucks, as long as I have a place to edit a novel, read my Kindle, or chat with you about what we're each working on.

Introvert and soft-spoken, preferring fireplaces and books to bars or clubs, but all too glad to devote a night to a great theater experience and a long discussion of it over wine or scotch.
What I’m doing with my life
Software development during the day, where I'm helping to (if very indirectly) cure cancer!

Writer and networker at night. If I'm not editing a novel or working on a freelance project, then I'm drafting a game book or making introductions between friends. Occasional tutor.

Regular gamer, of both digital and tabletop inclinations.

Can't wait to move into a bigger place and start cooking more again.
I’m really good at
Getting excited about thing. This chocolate-drizzled waffle is delicious! We've landed a robot on a friggin' comets! Everything is awesome, and I'm glad to celebrate that fact.
The first things people usually notice about me
My intense, hazel eyes or my puppy-like enthusiasm for everything life has to offer.

The six things I could never do without
In no particular order:
* Delicious tea
* My laptop
* An hour of quiet each day.
* Chocolate
* Coffee shops
* Books
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why haven't we adopted the interrobang (combining the exclamation point and the question mark) into formal grammar so that I properly express my feelings in my last sentence? When will we ever see another movie as good as WALL-E? If one of my highschool and college classmates just made it into Pixar as an animation, can I achieve the same?

And please, what makes it so hard to get too, to, and two right, just for starters?

How many creative cohorts can I have in my life at once? How soon could we buy an apartment of our own, where we can all collaborate on awesome work?
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually at one lower-key social gathering or another, usually meeting friends for drinks, a game night, or meeting someone new. Planning to have more social nights in with friends when I move to a place with a bigger kitchen.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I went out and bought new Transformer toys just to put on my desk at work.
You should message me if
You wish that the Boston Museum of Natural History would let you stay overnight. A night of NetFlix and homemade cinnamon rolls excites you more than a dive bar or dance floor. You could spend an entire Saturday just writing, painting, reading, or the like, and feel glad to have done so. You want to co-author interactive fiction or visual novels.

If you're open to ethical non-monogamy. I'm enamored with the idea of knowing that my partners could have someone else around when I'm not available. I've just started embracing it, so there's still much for me to learn there. Want to teach me, or learn together?
