I'm a culturally Jewish Caucasian who has recently moved to the Oakland / Berkeley border. That makes me part of the contemporary gentrification challenge but I do not have plans to commute to the South Bay on any corporate busses just yet.
I'm an active fella who craves lots of exercise and nature and sun. Biking, chasing down frisbees, and camping are more fun than laptop-ing, but to pay rent in modern society some laptop is currently required. Fortunately I found causes I am happy to dedicate my work week to.
I like real conversation with depth. I can do superficial small talk, but I get bored with excessive BS. I've been known to say ridiculous and/or inappropriate (un PC) things in order to spice up conversations and get a rise out of people. My voice carries, and sometimes I need to be reminded to shhhhhh.
