My self-summary
Queer. Empath. Geek. Revolutionary (100% success rate toppling dictators). Clown maker. Polyamorous. Unicorn princess in a man's body. They/them pronouns.

I love to learn, share laughter, 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 dry wit to the absurd. I crave all things new and unusual and love saying "yes, and!"

I'm an animated speaker, mindful listener, earnestly passionate, pragmatic idealist, gregarious introvert, curious hedonist, a bit of a logophile and big on integrity.
What I’m doing with my life
Making computers do stuff. Improvising, mostly offstage these days. Also butchering quotes and idioms, but we'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

In the somewhat 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.

I like to surround myself with people who are judicious with the fucks they give, especially beyond themselves.

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.
Citing my sources.
Finding where we parked.
Air hockey.
Making silly sounds/voices.
The first things people usually notice about me
Height, colorful hair and clothes, 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).

Shows/Series: sense8, 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, Florence and the Machine, Explosions in the Sky, Caravan Palace, 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!
Six things I could never do without
* Love
* Laughter
* Sunshine
* Reading material
* Music
* Alternatives to pants
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Actionable plans to make the world a better, more equitable 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; language and communication; the variability of human attraction;
smashing the patriarchy; ethical sluttiness.
On a typical Friday night I am
Generally sharing some joie de vivre. The last few Fridays I've been attending shows and talks, the occasional party, or hanging out with friends and partners.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I still pronounce Deadmau5 as dead-maw-five.
