My self-summary
*insert token name is Alan, 31, lives in The Valley blah blah all the boring stuff*

Brief overview of me:
Like stuff? Yes
Dislike stuff? Yes
Gone to the Moon? Not yet
Awesome? Indubitably good sir
Anything else? Free set of steak knives

What's that? You want more? Well quit being lazy and just scroll down.
What I’m doing with my life
Well I like many other people am working, trying to save to travel and do some crazy things that I am yet to do.

Moving into learning portrait photography. so if you want to help me out and maybe (make no promises haha) get some nice shots let me know.

and always trying to complete more of my bucket list: (Gamble is my surname, makes more sense if you know that :P)
I’m really good at
I love learning anything and everything.
Love science, astronomy and many many other things.
The first things people usually notice about me
Ok, so the new trend for me seems to be the fact that I look like Matt Damon, it started with drunk chicks at bars but now even sober bouncers have told me such as I've walked into places.

You be the judge... or if you have a Matt Damon obsession, I might be the closest you will get. So message me ;)

Best new series of the last couple of years - House of Cards.

Community - yes on its own line because it's that awesome.

Also I'd go with Craig Ferguson as the best "Late night" host.

Music well I'll save myself some typing:

Partial to a good steak and nothing but medium rare,
and anything depends on mood at the time.

I'll also throw games in here, while I'm not a huge gamer anymore, I am partial to a good game every now and then. Some favorites include Far Cry 3, Star Wars - Knights of the old Republic, Vampire the Masquerade - Bloodlines, Diablo 2, Deus Ex and Mass Effect.
The six things I could never do without
My Telescope and my DSLR... in fact I love my entire geek culture filled apartment,
Critical Thinking,
Music especially progressive rock,
The forces of nature (Storms - check, Volcanoes - check, Earthquakes - check, Floods - check, Tsunamis, Hurricanes and Tornadoes left to experience.)
and Google...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Bucket lists, travel, work, friends, new things, old things, big things and small things.

Also currently: Starting a comic book collection, next tattoo possibly a Kryptonian symbol and continuing to replicate costumes such as Dexter, Tony Stark and many more.

Project Ara
On a typical Friday night I am
On a Friday night, generally catch up with a few work mates for a beer and relax after a long week or don't and just chill at home with a few movies.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I own a full sized replica of a District 9 Assault Rifle from Weta Workshop and a large sign stating my apartment is "For Humans Only"
You should message me if
Honestly, I just realised how long my profile is, so if you got to this point... you should haha.

You can help me decide on my next travel destination. The choice is between Iceland for aurora hunting and pretty country, Ukraine for Chernobyl or back to the US for more tornado chasing... What can I say, I don't do boring "contiki" type tours.

Also I really am all about a bucket list, so help me or I can help you brainstorm out ideas for your own... seriously your life will never be boring again.
