My self-summary
Empath. Geek. Revolutionary. Clown. Polyamorous.

I crave all things new and unusual and love saying "yes, and!"

I love to learn, make people laugh, and do things that make everyone around/involved feel alive. People's stories intrigue and invigorate me. I enjoy most humor, from puns to slapstick, and the ironic to the absurd.

I'm an animated speaker, mindful listener, earnestly passionate, pragmatic idealist, lazy workaholic, curious hedonist, a bit of a logophile and always honest.
What I’m doing with my life
Making computers do stuff. Improvising, both on-stage and off. Also butchering quotes and idioms, but we'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

In the recent past, I toppled a dictator, moved across the world, and now spend quite a bit of time exploring the idiosyncrasies of life in San Francisco.

This befits my life: "He attacked everything in life with a mix of extraordinary genius and naive incompetence, and it was often difficult to tell which was which." - Douglas Adams
I’m really good at
Not panicking.
Thumb war -- haven't lost since I moved to the area!
L'esprit d'escalier.
Grokking technology.
Entertaining myself.
Citing my sources.
Finding where we parked.
Air hockey.
Making silly sounds/voices.
The first things people usually notice about me
Height, bright hair, and I'm often seen gifting clown noses.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: anything by Douglas Adams (especially The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy 'trilogy', Dirk Gently's Wholistic Detective Agency). Harry Potter. The couple of books I've read by Neil Gaiman (he's on top of my to-read list). The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera. Animal Farm by George Orwell (I am yet to get around to 1984). Melancholia by Basil Fateen.

Shows/Series: Rick and Morty, Suits, Heroes, Once Upon A Time. I don't watch a lot of TV, although it's still way too easy to hook me in front of one. I also enjoy a lot of TED talks.

Movies: Kung Fu Panda, Inside Out, Zootopia, Mad Max, The Life of Brian, Paul, Red, Law Abiding Citizen, Fight Club, movies by Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, et al), V For Vendetta, The Matrix.

Music: Mostly rock-ish, including (in no particular order): Queen, Muse, Explosions in the Sky, Parov Stelar, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Tenacious D, The Blues Brothers, Barenaked Ladies. Also, Daft Punk, for making a movie for an album (Interstella 5555, with those smurf-coloured people you've been wondering about).

Food: Almost anything, but not a lot of seafood. All-time favourite: Koshary!
The six things I could never do without
* Love
* Laughter
* Stories
* Sunshine
* Music
* Alternatives to pants
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Actionable plans to make the world a better place. Science, technology and their effects on society; truth and perspectives; life stories; the precarious balance between being exceedingly vague and overly verbose; what puns can be made about the topics at hand; 'vibes' people feel about other people; whether things like stairs are an invention or discovery.
On a typical Friday night I am
Curled up with a book, or out and about:
- Karaoke-ing
- Doing improv (improv theatre, picking up contact improv)
- Camping
- Or whatever sounds fun, which includes a LOT of things.

Probably making a fool of myself somewhere; generally sharing some joie de vivre.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I still pronounce Deadmau5 as dead-maw-five.
