My self-summary
I'm an easy-going, entrepreneurial coder originally from GA. So I am equally at home in tech and BBQ. Which is more important remains an open question.

I've written some novels as well, mostly sci-fi and alternate history. I decided to take a break from tech for a bit and work the other side of my brain. During that phase, I also discovered I love the whole process of movie making. I'm a moderately good screenwriter and editor, but my love is directing. Managing a cast and crew, finding ways to get better performances from actors, getting locations to work for the shot. These are great fun. So of course, I adore SIFF: Seattle International Film Festival.

I am thoughtful, friendly, well-travelled, kink friendly, and curious. Total foodie, so do share your favorite restaurant picks.

I like new projects. Currently, that means exploring 18th century cooking recipes/techniques, and building my own copper still to make whiskey.
What I’m doing with my life
I work from home with my own software business. Basically, my job is I come up with new ideas for software, build it, then my business partner sells/licenses it to other large businesses. It lets me work from home/coffee shops, and I love the independence.

I'm married, in an open/poly marriage. My wife and I communicate very well, and give each other the freedom to date others. It works well for us.
I’m really good at
Cooking. My specialties are chicken curry, cheese fondue, tarte tatin, thai meatballs. And I can improv something out of bare cupboards.

Film directing, skiing, sailing, scuba diving, chess, strategy games.

Recently loving bushcraft too, or camping with minimal gear.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm easy to chat with, smart, well mannered.

I have a slight southern accent from my upbringing in Georgia.

I'm confident, but not cocky.

Six things I could never do without
Hot showers, red wine, good companionship, my friends, great food, banter.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Current issues in the world. I appreciate and am comfortable with complexity and ambiguity. Two traits that define our world's recent past, yet seem intolerable for many people.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having dinner with friends, or at home reading/catching up on sci-fi tv.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll get back to you.
You should message me if
You're sharp, sarcastic and a great communicator.
The two of us
