I’ll admit I’m a nerd. I love geek culture, all things sci-fi, movies, board games (Catan!), and video games. I also keep up highly on new technology, energy, biotech, and space related developments. I'm attracted to intelligence. Talk techie/spacey to me and I promise you we’ll be best friends. Current thing I'm nerding out to. SpaceX killed it with the re-landing of their first rocket. Within days it was ready for launch again. That kind of turnaround could really revolutionize space launches. Now they just need to finish their spaceport so they can do more launches!
That said, I do get out a lot. I enjoy bicycling/mountain biking (downhill mountain biking at Steven's Pass is a blast!), snowboarding, boating, river rafting, camping, and just generally getting out of the house. I just got into astrophotography and LOVE it. Super excited for the summer so I can get some good shots of the Milky Way.
I’m a diehard Seahawks fan who’s been going to the majority of home games since ~2004. I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to attend all the Seahawks Super Bowls and they were incredible experiences. Do not pass up on a championship game of any sport if you have the chance to go to one.
I loooove food. Trying new places to eat is one of my favorite things to do. There’s so much amazing food out there and I want to enjoy it all, simultaneously, in my belllaaay. I don’t know what I would do without Urbanspoon/Yelp haha. Currently trying to become a Yelp Elite but it's so hard!
Speaking of trying new places to eat, I’m big on urban exploring. There’s a lot to see in Seattle, which is partly why I love it so much. I don’t do a lot of solo exploring though, as I like to share experiences rather than experience them alone, so I haven’t been doing as much exploring as I’d like to lately. If you go on a date with me though, you can bet we will end up doing something fun and unique :) (at least I'd like to think so haha). I hope to turn this hobby into exploring other countries someday soon. I’m not well-traveled and that bothers me. Australia is my #1 travel destination right now. UPDATE: Just got back from an impromptu 5 week trip to Australia and New Zealand. It was incredible! New Zealand is a must visit for everybody.
Working on developing my video game company. Released on PC and Xbpx 360 and am now working on our next big title. This next one is my real passion project, so I'm very excited to get it underway.
About to start taking flying lessons and finally get my pilots license. That's been on my bucket list for like a decade.
I'm a lazy cook, but when I do go all out, what I make is pretty good. My family has a world famous chili cheese dip recipe that will blow your mind (ok maybe not world famous, but it should be!). It's all my friends let me bring to potlucks.
I can be a pretty decent planner. Though I feel that's by necessity because my friends and family suck at it haha.
I have a reflexive ability to make spontaneous stupid faces for cameras. Makes it hard to find usable pictures for my profile. If we become Facebook friends, you'll see the proof of this.
I am great at freaking out the cats that live with us (as well as occasionally my roommates). It's always funny when a cat is in super serious mode and you startle them and they jump straight up into the air.
Typing exceptionally long profiles that will make you second guess whether this is all worth reading or not (it totally is).
Movies: I'm a bit of a cinema junkie (especially horror movies!) and there's soooo many I could name. These are a very small number of the movies I like. A few would be Interstellar, Dark Knight, most any Jim Carrey (particularly Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls) or Will Ferrell comedy, Grandma's Boy, Taken, Count of Monte Cristo, Quarantine, Dawn of the Dead (remake), World War Z, Limitless, Iron Man, Avengers, 40 Year Old Virgin, Descent, Cabin in the Woods, Matrix Trilogy, Underworld Trilogy, and Avatar. I am also nerdgasming over the latest Star Wars trailer. I CANNOT wait for that movie to come out.
TV: Battlestar Galactica, Dexter, Breaking Bad, Big Bang Theory, Once Upon a Time, Fringe, Friends, Warehouse 13, Awake, Shark Tank, South Park, New Girl, The River, Tosh.0, Misfits, Arrested Development, The League, Better Off Ted, True Blood, Game of Thrones, Community, Modern Family, The Office (when Steve Carrel was on it), The Universe, Man vs. Food, Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, Planet Earth, and tons more.
Books: Sci-fi, futurism based, or anything post-apocalyptic. Ender's Game, Old Man's War, Foundation, World War Z, Day by Day Armageddon, The Stand, The Rising, Cell. I've recently been reading a lot of books about life and physics. How life works is extremely fascinating and learning about it has really given me a new appreciation for living as well as a new perspective on life.
Music: I like electronic music and rock the best. I'm really not picky, but real twangy country and hardcore rap just grate on my ears. I used to listen to the radio a lot, but got unbelievably tired of hearing the same stuff on it every, single, day. I have lately gotten into audiobooks while driving. I even have an Audible subscription now!

I've been on here a long time and met some interesting and good people and I've found, in that time, that this is a broken system. It's too much like going through a pile of resumes and seeing who fits some idea of who you think you should be with. I believe that the "spark", or whatever you want to call it, is extremely important to ignite passion and you just can't get it on here. You need face to face interaction to truly judge compatibility and the mystery of learning about someone is crucial. What's the fun in meeting someone who's already told you their life story beforehand? Dating shouldn't be a job, so if you message me, or I message you, and you feel compelled to reply, know that I'll push to meet you asap. I would rather spend an hour or two on a date than days or weeks messaging only to realize we aren't compatible when we meet in person. I'm trying to find something real and I want it to come naturally. Online dating just isn't natural. If that isn't your cup of tea, no hard feelings. We all walk different paths in life. I'm just trying to find the one who crosses mine.
