Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a twenty-something with a creative streak who loves games. Not
the "relationship mind games" kind of games, though, the kind you
invite your friends over to play. I've designed a few games of my
own, and would like to get them published someday if I can.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've got a BA in English/Communication, a new apartment in a new
city, and I'm working on getting myself established in a new phase
of my life. It's an exciting time for me!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing, since that's what I went to college for. Anything from
newspaper articles to short fiction. I'm working on several writing
projects at the moment, and well as freelance assignments. I also
pick up new skills pretty easily, so I may end up surprising you.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I would probably say it's my glasses, I guess, or my beard. I've
changed my facial hair a few times, as you'll see in my
Unless I'm wearing my hat. Then it's definitely my hat.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: The Art of Fiction, The Young Writer At Work, The Omnivore's
Dilemma, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, NOS4A2, Ella Minnow
Pea, Big Secrets, Javatrekker, and anything by Isaac Asimov or
Edgar Allen Poe. I also want to read The Name of the Wind, Pollen
and the Ring of Harmony, and my friends all keep recommending Game
of Thrones to me. I'm a big fan of the Golden Age of Sci-Fi (around
the 50's) and the occasional fantasy epic.
Games: I've got a PS3, and I've played Skyrim, a few Silent Hill
games, Borderlands, LittleBigPlanet, Journey, Bioshock, and Batman:
Arkham Aslylum, among others. Here's hoping someone out there can
recommend a good two-player game. ;) I also play a lot of board
games and tabletop games now that I have roommates to play them
with. Our current favorites are Dominion, Race for the Galaxy, and
Cards against Humanity.
Music: I listen to my car radio or Pandora quite a bit. In the car,
I've got 92.9, 96.9, and 103.3 as my current favorites. I also
still have a Walkman with dozens of CD's worth of MP3s loaded up on
it, and I like getting new CDs from the library to load into it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Something to entertain me, something to make me think, someone to
talk to, something to challenge me, something to do for a living,
and someplace to go when I need a break from the other five.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...what to write about next, and how to make the books I'm working
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
out at the game shop having my one night out a week. If I'm not
working, that is. Or I might just be hanging out at the house,
since it's cheaper that way and I do worry about my budget.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My mother passed away when I was a teenager, and it hit me really
hard. Luckily I've been blessed with plenty of loving and
supportive aunts and uncles. It kind of makes me sad that I'm an
only child, since I'd like to think I'd make a good uncle someday.
