My self-summary
First, watch this 30-sec clip and put a smile on your face!

Now, onto my self-summary:
If I could pick three words to describe me: geeky, outdoorsy, and family.

I prefer to keep a close-knit circle of friends that I hang out with frequently and treat as family. Many of them ARE my family. I'm technically an only child, but I like to think that I have four brothers, five sisters, six mothers, and three fathers.

As mentioned, I'm a geek (or, more accurately, a geek + nerd), which means I go to Comic Con, I love big showcase movies (Avengers! Lord of the Rings! Harry Potter!), and I prize new keystone experiences (Rocket launch? Yes, please!).

As also mentioned, in addition to being a geek, I'm also very outdoorsy and active. Not an expected combination, but also not as uncommon as you'd think. I love to bike through LA, I go solo-camping once every few months in order to experience nature (and pretend I'm in Middle-Earth; I AM NOT ASHAMED), and I've done a ton of bucket-list things like skydiving, scuba diving, white water rafting, etc.

On the whole, I'm basically a big kid. But that doesn't mean I don't take things seriously. I'm not looking for a fling or a casual relationship. I want a best friend and partner to go on adventures with, and that means a lot of talking, a lot of laughing, and a whole lot of stories to share.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a professional technogeek (translation: engineer) who works and lives out of a suitcase (I've been on 13 planes in the last five weeks), goes to Disneyland way too often, and spends way too much time figuring out ways to empty my bucket list as fast as possible so that I can refill it again. I've checked off a metric crapton of stuff the last couple of years, and although I've toned down the adrenaline-seeker in me recently, I still do experience bouts of wanderlust. To me, "living out of a suitcase" is not necessarily a bad thing.

On the flip side, on some days I can be a total couch potato, marathoning a nerdy TV show (probably something British), watching a whole trilogy of movies back to back, or finishing an entire book in one sitting. These super-lazy days don't happen often (they're usually Sundays), but when they do, I make the most of them.
I’m really good at
I'm changing this to, "I want to get really good at...", because I think it's a better question to ask.

I want to get really good at....
* Writing. I really wish I had the time to do NaNoWriMo.
* Staying active and fit and always finding new things to do in the sunlight
* Traveling, not just to far off places, but also to nearby places I've never been to
* Photography. I bought this camera, I'm gonna use it, dammit
* Expanding my knowledge. I watch a lot of iTunes U and edX course videos.
* Exploring LA by bike. I got a road bike a few months ago, and it's opened up my eyes to what's around me more than my car ever has. CicLAvia!
The first things people usually notice about me
That my Kindle is almost always within arm's reach. I think the furthest I've ever been away from it was when I took it to the beach one day and had to leave it on shore when I went swimming.

I felt so alone. :(
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I am a television junkie. Doctor Who, Sherlock, Mythbusters, and all things Whedon are my all-time favorites. Currently geeking out over Game of Thrones, Arrow, Psych, Sleepy Hollow, Almost Human, Castle, Agents of SHIELD, Grimm, Person of Interest, Supernatural, Intelligence, and Helix.

Books, books, books from all eras and all genres! But most especially nonfiction, history, sci-fi, fantasy, historical fiction, and mystery. My favorite books were Matilda in grade school, Ender's Game in junior high, Dune in high school, and the A Song of Ice and Fire series (Game of Thrones) in college and beyond. I've also recently taken a liking to non-fiction in general.

Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson are pretty much my favorite directors. Pacific Rim, Hellboy 1+2, Blade 2, and Pan's Labyrinth are all candidates for regular rewatching, and Lord of the Rings is an all-time favorite. Currently invested in the whole Marvel Cinematic Universe.

I am slightly obsessed with musicals, especially Les Miserables and Disney.

RAMEN. And Korean BBQ.
The six things I could never do without

- My Kindle(s)
- My cameras (w/ associated gear)
- My laptop (w/ associated accessories)
- My smartphone (aka my portable link to Wikipedia, aka the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy)
- My bag of holding (i.e. messenger bag for carrying all of the above)

Six things that I don't own that I could never do without
- The great outdoors
- Bookstores (and libraries)
- Wikipedia
- Padded floors (or better yet, bouncy floors)
- Air travel
- Outer space
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to throw myself at the ground and miss. I'm telling you, it's the secret to learning how to fly. The first part is easy. It's the second part I'm having trouble with. *ow*

Seriously, though, I think about a lot. Most of my web time is spent link-surfing history and science pages on Wikipedia.

Most recently, though, I've taken a leap into the hobby of travel hacking. Anyone else want to help figure out ways to earn a bunch of free flights and free hotel rooms in a short period of time?
On a typical Friday night I am
....planning my weekend getaway. Maybe a road trip, maybe a camping trip, who knows? I also like to indulge in "staycations" in and around the city. Los Angeles is unsurprisingly a great city to find new stuff to do. I've always called LA "a city of a thousand towns," since no matter where you are in the city, traveling just a mile or two in any direction will lead you to a very different neighborhood, with its own culture and character.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 22–30
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
Choose two or more:
....you're a bit of a nerd/geek and aren't afraid to show it
....you would love to go camping (or maybe just picnicking to start with)
....you want to watch a meteor shower
....you have a Disneyland annual pass, or are willing to go at least twice a year
....you aren't afraid to go on an adventure
....you know where I got my username

Ultimately, though, all of the above boils down to three things:
- Be passionate
- Be curious
- Be adventurous

And don't forget to be awesome!
