My self-summary
Update: Currently in a relationship, though I'm always cool with making new friends. :)

I love meeting people and trying new things. I'm not shy, nor am I embarrassed about my geeky side. I make a point of being honest. Skydiving takes my breath away. I'm a romantic, not hopeless. :)
What I’m doing with my life
I live in San Francisco, and work as an engineer in the Financial district. I used to contract at both Facebook and Sony Computer Entertainment.
I’m really good at
I love both long distance running and sprinting, hiking, being a good listener, and fixing most anything (especially technology problems).
The first things people usually notice about me
People probably notice my hair or my green eyes first.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I enjoy any book by Stephen King, Tamora Pierce, or Terry Brooks.

My favorite movie is The Princess Bride. I also love Serenity, Braveheart, Gladiator, The Matrix, Equilibrium, and every Studio Ghibli movie I've seen... especially Howl's Moving Castle.

I watch House of Cards, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Castle, Archer, and Once Upon a Time. I watched Firefly, Dexter, Leverage, Chuck, and Breaking Bad when they were on.

EDM rocks my world, but I'll gladly listen to anything that doesn't mention someone's dog and/or wife leaving him.

I love eating sashimi, curry, green tea gelato, kimchi, and mochi.
The six things I could never do without
Family, friends, Internet access, a jailbroken iPhone, music, and cats
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I often think about many things at once. This includes my future, and how I can improve... but I'm happy with who I am. I also think about what I can do for others. That's why I spend a couple of hours a month donating platelets, am on the national bone marrow donor registry, and do volunteer work for a human rights organization named Equality Now which helps women worldwide.
On a typical Friday night I am
I spend a lot of Friday nights visiting friends, which sometimes means a long drive that I'm happy to make. I also enjoy good DJs, and sipping on single malt scotch.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There's nothing so private about my life that I won't discuss it with anyone, but I do respect that most other people are more private than I am... so I keep others' secrets. If you're looking for something that other guys might find embarrassing, I used to watch Glee. :)
You should message me if
- You want to meet someone who won't waste your time
- You're looking for someone whose profile is 100% honest
- You want to meet someone who isn't afraid of commitment
- You think we'd make good friends
- You'll be honest with me, and expect honesty in return
- You want to ask me anything at all
- You've kindly read everything that I wrote

If even one thing in the list above clicks with you, I hope you'll say hi. :) I'm just looking for "the one just for me" like so many other OkCupid users, and having fun as I learn along the way. I'm happy to meet anyone, at any point in my life. Take a chance... get to know me.
