I'm a sociable computer nerd, optimistic realist, and my favorite humor style is situational, with some deadpan and self-deprecating mixed in. I love to learn, be it about science, the human condition, people around me, or the ridiculous and absurd. I'm looking for someone smart, affectionate, and funny. And I don't know how to write profiles without resorting to non-sequitor facts about me and/or my ideal girl, so I'll just keep going with that.
I'm a tinkerer/DIY-er. Be it assembling furniture, the dock I built last year, or the random apartment renovations I've done, I love the intersection of mind and matter: Learning something new while using my hands to build it. I love figuring out how things (and people, and myself) work.
I'm artistically challenged in everything but photography. I'm on a never-ending quest to figure out exactly what elements make a picture interesting, beautiful, sad, funny, or thought provoking. Mostly, I've gotten really good at hitting the delete key on the many shots that are none of those.
