My self-summary
I grew up on a farm outside of a town of 40,000 in Illinois where I spent a lot of time alone and developed a very strong imagination. It gave me an appreciation for alone time, nature, and for creating things.

It took a lot for me to be where I am today and I couldn't be happier. I have a job I love, I have lots of friends, and host of fun challenges.

I try to stick as much as I can into life every day. This normally means me working on as many hobbies and activities as I can every day, from working out to writing to drawing to going to an event. I'm more introverted than extroverted, but I still like going out and having fun with friends and trying new things.

During the weekends I try to cross adventures off my list, go for a long run, or work on my writing or art. Occasionally I get in a hike or a board game with some friends and I also enjoy seeing plays and movies. I seem to rotate between Impact Theater and Shotgun Players quite a bit, and have been organizing friends to go see various plays.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a linux server dude at a local company, and absolutely love my job. It's challenging and I work with a ton of great people.

In my free time I am:
Riding my bike and running
Wishing I was working on my art
Working on my novel during the long BART ride
Being excited over silly things, like Ghostbuster Legos or other randomness
Being addicted to Evernote and Todist to organize my life
Playing board/card/rpg games, yup Magic, Akrham Horror, bunches and bunches of geek-stuff.
Learning Ruby on Rails
Wishing I hiked more

The first things people usually notice about me
Most new people I meet ask about a set of tattoos I have on my forearms. They're a bit abstract and there to remind me of life lessons. I have more lessons to add to my arms too, as soon as I have time.

I also tend to wear r nerdy t-shirts.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Fiction. I read about a book a week, I also consume quite a bit of comic books. Most of my books are fantasy and sci-fi, love the Harry Dresden series along with about any gritty sci-fi novel. Works based upon HP Lovecraft also tend to draw my attention. I've been branching out and reading lots of novels in the 20's and 30's as research for my novel. I also use Goodreads to track all of my books, and have about 700 rated so far with another 300+ on my to-read.

Movies: I love movies and watch many various types. My favorites are normally sci-fi, horror, and mockumentaries. If you get a chance you should watch "Never Been Thawed" or "Darkon" both are hilarious.

Music: Pandora, I like a variety over just one type.

Food:I like cooking, baking, making things. I tend to make gluten free products (like this amazing bread that is almost completely almond butter). Lately my diet has moved towards pescatarian, so I've been working on various recipes that are vegetable and fish based.
