If you're reading this, it's probably because I sent you a message.
If I did, it's because I think we might hit it off due to some
specific common interest(s)--most likely creative pursuits, travel
and adventure, or general desire to color outside the lines.
Don't take my word for it, though. Check out my profile and let me
know if you agree.
What I’m doing with my life
I make things up for a living, which is kind of a dream come true,
and while I love what I do, I have plenty of other interests and am
fascinated by other people's passions too.
I love learning new things and hope to never stop growing and
evolving as a person. To that end, I am almost always working on a
personal project or goal. I've also been known to do things just
because it'll make for a good story--and I have several good ones
to share at this point.
I also try to stay fit, but I'm not a fanatic about it. Yes, I
completed my second triathlon and Tough Mudder this year, but I
only did it so I could eat what I like.
I'm not perfect, but I try to live my life with integrity and value
those who do likewise. Honest people and good communicators get
bonus points in my book.
I’m really good at
Seeing the big picture, coming up with new ideas, and making people
The first things people usually notice about me
My green eyes and then my sense of humor. I'm pretty friendly most
of the time, but I like to sit back and observe when around a lot
of people I don't know.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books (partial list): the epic Song of Ice and Fire series by
George R.R. Martin (which I've been reading since book two); the
gritty and futuristic Takeshi Kovacs trilogy by Richard K. Morgan;
Roald Dahl's twisted short stories; the seminal Fahrenheit 451 by
Ray Bradbury; the wickedly funny Lamb by Christopher Moore.
Movies: Casablanca; Comedian; Hedwig and the Angry Inch; Fight
Club; Pleasantville; Pump Up the Volume; Secretary
Plays: The Time of Your Life by William Saroyan; Equivocation by
Bill Cain; The Book of Mormon musical
Food: I love spicy food, such as Thai and Indian. I also like
Italian, sushi, and classic comfort foods. I also enjoy having
breakfast for dinner from time to time.
The six things I could never do without
Imagination, books, movies, friends, games, and the Internet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm usually out with friends or at home working on a project.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once wooed a girl using suggestive Latin phrases. I also asked a
girl out solely because Aliens was her favorite Mother's Day
There is plenty more where that came from, but the better you get
to know me, the more embarrassing stories I'll tell about myself.
You should message me if
I love the Pacific Northwest--yes, even the rain--but I'm not
terribly outdoorsy. I try to remain active, but hiking, camping,
and skiing are freak occurrences for me, so I'd be poor company if
those activities are important to you.
On the other hand, I love going out to dinner, watching a movie, or
taking in a play, so let me know if you're interested in those
sorts of things.
