I'm an easy going, game-loving nerd with a sense of humor. I really
can't get more accurate...
What I’m doing with my life
When I'm not continually distracted by all there is to do here in
the Bay Area, I work for a non-profit college providing support for
people who develop and fund scholarships and grants for students.
I'm also enrolled in said non-profit college learning computer
science and will eventually switch my career track to programming.
I also perform theater (a life-long passion of mine), play all
manner of games, ride motorcycles (when I have one), bike ride
almost daily, hang out with friends and family, have nerdy
conversations and learn as many things as possible.
I’m really good at
Organizing things. Not in the planning sense, but the
putting-things-in-order sense. And cleaning up to get out of
cooking. Oh, also game-ifying things to make work more fun (thank
you, Mary Poppins). I've been told I'm also very articulate.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height for sure. Second is probably my ears (look at those
massive things!! If the windflap design weren't helping my head to
stay level, I'd have had them tied back YEARS ago).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have zero time to actually read so I mostly end up using Audible
whenever I go bike riding. If it's fiction, it's likely some sci-fi
or fantasy fiction. Recently finished books include those from
Stephen King, Dan Simmons, John Scalzi, Patrick Rothfuss, Peter
Clines, and Steven Brust. But when I do actually READ, I seem to
read more non-fiction than anything like Ray Kurzweil, Stephen
Hawking, Sam Harris, Karen Armstrong, so physics, technology,
humanism, futurism, neurology, sociology, history, etc...
I like all genres of music except country. I have some favorites
like Tool, Tori Amos, Massive Attack, Audioslave, Ani Difranco,
System of a Down, really old Jazz, Amon Tobin...I always like to
hear new stuff though.
I worked for a number of years in the film industry in LA. You'd
think I would have seen more movies than I have (and I have seen a
LOT), but I'm always continually surprised at what I haven't seen,
which I suppose is a good problem cause I get to watch those films
for the first time still! As for favorites, just to give you an
idea: The Big Lebowski, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Schindler's List,
Cowboy Bebop, Silent Hill, The entire Bourne series, LotR, The 5th
Element, Aliens, Nolan's Batman series, Waking Life, Ace Ventura 2:
When Nature Calls...I could go on for quite a while, actually. I'm
pretty easy about movies and I like most genres. If it's good, I'll
watch it. Even if it's not good, try me...hey you never know.
I'm a jackal with food. I prefer more vegetables than anything
else; but as long as those are at least part of the meal, I will
eat anything put in front of me.
The six things I could never do without
Friends n Family (yes, that's one thing to me)
(many of these things in combination, please)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Is knowledge merely belief on a sliding scale? Is a universal
definition of human morality possible? Can entanglement exist
outside the quantum realm? How many times could I justify eating
sushi in a single week? At what point will the internet achieve
self-awareness? In how many situations can one be responsibly
irresponsible? Would this go well with coffee? Why has nobody
thought to give Joss Whedon his own TV channel? When does the
narwhal bacon? Could I get funding for this...?
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out, preferably with friends. Some nights are spent playing
board, video or Dice-centric games. Some are spent at the theater
(watching or performing), or at the pub with a pint. People
watching is pretty awesome too; or doing nothing in particular.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I respect Keanu Reeves as an actor.
You should message me if
you are so inclined.
