My self-summary
All of the below was written five or so years ago. Will update soon.


I'm nerdy/geeky enough to be dangerous to your street cred (if you really, really care about such things, that is).

I think I'm pretty hip in the sense of "one who has his eyes open", though. I count amongst my friends some people who (IMHO) are outrageously cool and lovely and plugged-in, so your rep is probably safe.

In other news...
I take it as a sacred mandate to all humans that they must NEVER stop learning.
I spent half of my 20s in NE Asia. I studied butoh in Kyoto.
I believe that life is short and must be lived fiercely, joyously, and gloriously.
I dig adverbs.
What I’m doing with my life
I am partway through the first year of a five-year plan to have it all. I am reconstituting myself as a working artist and designer with heavy technical credentials and an uncompromising commitment to the deep future.
I’m really good at
Using my hands, making things, using my mind, learning, communicating, talking dirty in Japanese, putting energy into the world.
The first things people usually notice about me
From canvassing female friends I came up with:

"air of gravitas"
"mmmhmm... eyes"
"I would have to say your eyes. It was the first thing I noticed... That and your butt... lol!!"
" smokin' hot"

There you have it.
Sexy Rasputin -voluminous beard + buns of steel = me, apparently.
Either that or I have gentle female friends.

Actually, is gravitas a good thing?

The six things I could never do without
- An iPod all full up with media like a tick about to burst
- A ratty tattered paperback
- An organic soup of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen and trace elements
- My uniform of jeans and a black t-shirt
- My laptop
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the Fermi Paradox, deep time, sex, art, technology, evolution, strategy, radical hard SF, punk rock, strange music of various kinds, Mexican food, Japanese food, Japan, womenfolk, ways-of-being-in-the-world, the creative act, colors, sounds, shapes, textures, and humans.

That's good for a start.
On a typical Friday night I am
Loitering in Brooklyn with artists, scoundrels, poets, ne'er-do-wells, and beautiful humans of all stripes. Maybe eating a cheeseburger.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I miss my mom and my dad.
You should message me if
I don't know. If the spirit takes you? If you like smart cool men? If you are a very smart cool woman? Or for no reason at all, really, it's ok, be my guest.
