A few bite-sized facts:

What I’m doing with my life
In search of a full-time position, but currently writing freelance
while working a part-time job. It's a comfortable existence, but
I'm an ambitious person that believes there's always room for
improvement. That doesn't mean I lack self-confidence, just that
I'm always setting new goals for myself.
I’m really good at
Writing, tennis, video games, Jeopardy! I pick and choose my
battles very carefully here.
The first things people usually notice about me
The hipster glasses and dry wit.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: classic literature mostly (my minor in college) Jane Austen,
Arthur Conan Doyle, Ayn Rand, Agatha Christie, Lewis Carrol,

2, James Bond, anything by Hitchcock, film noir, any Pixar or
Miyazaki film, far too many to list

Angel, Futurama, Lost, The Golden Girls, Pushing Daisies,

I spend a lot of time thinking about
the future. Like I said, I'm a very ambitious person that makes
long-term plans. Life isn't something to meander through
day-to-day, it's something to enjoy and take an active approach
On a typical Friday night I am
It varies; friends, games, movies, drinking, a combination
I enjoy spontaneity though; impromptu strolls by the river, or
driving out of town at 2am to stargaze.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm much less aloof in real life. I like meeting people a lot more
when I talk with them in person, rather than reading their life's
story online. As my friends will attest, I'll rarely censor myself
when we hang out. Until that point, nothing too scandalous.
You should message me if
you know who is sitting on my shoulders above. As long as you have
a cursory knowledge of gaming, or anything geeky for that matter,
don't feel too intimidated.
