My self-summary
I'm a giant nerd. I like science fiction, particularly that stuffy old "hard" scifi like C. J. Cherryh and Phillip K. Dick, and I will fangirl out over the mere mention of Babylon 5.

If you're still reading, that's great! I figured I'd get that out of the way first as it is a large part of who I am and what I love.

I am not a religious person, but I do believe in a core set of morals and values that guide my actions. I find no reason to be hateful to others, and help them as much as I am able. If you can make a person smile for no cost, why would you not?

I am a politically-involved person, but do not consider myself "left" or "right"; I evaluate every argument from as many sides as possible, apply as much logic as possible in addition to my own values, and determine an answer from there. This puts me all over the board for individual issues, so you'll have to ask about each subject individually!

You must love dogs if you want to hang out with me. I have a very hyper german shepherd in the family!
What I’m doing with my life
Working in a hospital IT department and writing short stories, when not distracted by hanging out with my friends or obsessing over some new book or really great TV series.

My eventual goal is to make a living off my writing, but I enjoy doing it now, even if that never comes to fruition.
I’m really good at
I tell stories: doesn't matter the format. I'm also good at taking things apart and fixing them, and general problem-solving. I've helped a lot of my friends through some tough ethical dilemmas and other crises!
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably the hair. Down to my mid-back, it's the most distinguishing feature I have at first glance. Then there is the fact it's usually going every which-way as though it has a will of it's own...

The six things I could never do without
My computer: I write stuff here! The internet is here! What did we do before computers!?

Music: My life has a soundtrack.

My Books: If you've read this far, you may already be nodding in agreement at this one.

Dexter: My cat. He's a little bit nuts, and I believe he may be trying to kill me, but I love him to death.

Brain food: Give me a new puzzle or mental challenge any day. Tedium is the mind-killer.

Chocolate: This is self-explanatory.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything. My mind is in overdrive, particularly when I try to sleep.

Conversely, only my primal lizard-brain is functioning in the early morning, as I shamble about like a barley-sentient zombie that can only satisfy his bloodlust with copious amounts of caffeine.
On a typical Friday night I am
Collapsed on the bed after a hard work week, watching the most recent episode of Fringe with glee.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well, if it's private I can't admit it in public.

Get to know me, first!
You should message me if
...you managed to read this far!
