Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a former Michigander, but about 8 years ago I moved out to the
west coast. I don't suspect I'll ever move back; Its just too nice
out here. We've got the best weather around, and it's only an
hour's drive to either the ocean, or the mountains.
I'm a geek. I enjoy playing games of all varieties, from computer
& console games, to (European) board games, to pen & paper
RPGs (many systems).
When not gaming, I'm either just enjoying some quality time with
friends, either hanging around the house talking, or on a nice
walk/hike on the many trails on the eastside.
I find it quite fun to debate/discuss things. When a topic matters
to me, you could get me into a several hour discussion on it, which
can be quite fun. I may be quiet and shy at first, but once I open
up, all bets are off :)
I love to make people laugh. There is something about the emotion
of laughter that makes all people more comfortable in their
surroundings, so I seek to bring that comfort out in people. (not
to mention laughing is fun!)
I'm a skeptic, and an Atheist. I don't like to subscribe to methods
of thought that require me to accept something with little
evidence. I am bothered by those that would push an agenda based on
little to no evidence, and they shun meaningful debate about the
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working right now at a game development studio, doing testing
and programming. It's an awesome job, with great coworkers and a
casual work environment. However, I'd love to be working on mobile
technology, with a focus on Brain Machine Interfaces (I want to be
working with wearable computing and cybernetics). Those fields
aren't really available right now, but they should be soon. I'm
also working on virtual realty stuff as a side project.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm good at keeping discussions going when the room goes silent,
for better or for worse. I'm also apt with electronics, and
specifically with computers.
I have an uncanny sense of direction when it comes to navigating
streets. I need only look at a map once, and not only can I direct
people to the location, but I can do repeated trips there, and can
do course corrections on the fly. I'm a walking GPS. My friends
joke that the'll take me, blindfold me, and leave me in some remote
region and see how long (if at all) it takes for me to find my way
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
First impressions of me is most likely that I'm pretty quiet,
depending on how many people in the room I haven't met before.
Otherwise you might see a much more talkative person. Regardless,
you'll most likely see a smile from me if I notice you noticing me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

On books, I tend towards cyberpunk (Old like Neuromancer
and new like Reamde
) but I also like
general Sci-Fi, fantasy, crime/spy, and mysteries. I really like

In regards to foods, I pride myself in my goal of trying to get
myself to like every food I can. I really like Thai food (though
not too spicy), Seafood, and various craft beers.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1.Friends. I value the support friends can give, and life would be
boring without them.
2. Family. I love my family, even though they all live in Michigan.
I'd love to find a way to be able to visit them often, but until we
have teleporters, I'll have to rely on the archaic system of flying
to visit them.
3. A connection to the Internet. Unless I specifically chose to, I
find it very uncomfortable to be disconnected long periods of
4. Having a car. I can't explore new places anywhere as easily
without my own transportation.
5. Society. Even with friends, I don't think I'd survive well if me
and my friends were cut off from civilization (unless it's the
6. Places to explore. I really enjoy visiting new places, even if
it just a section of town I've neglected to visit. There's not much
like the thrill of going somewhere I've never been before, or
getting lost in an unfamiliar city.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
When I find the time to think, I tend to think a great the future
of technology, especially when it is threatened by current events
in the world. We are on an ever careening advancement of technology
and science, and I'm always looking forward to the next interesting
technological innovation, small or large.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
My Fridays are usually spent with friends, playing board games (if
we have time). Going out can be fun as well, but less so if I can't
convince some friends to tag along.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
After I open up (and I do), and am discussing a topic I am very
opinionated on, I can argue pretty passionately, which can be a bit
much for some people.
