I’m an introvert trapped in an extrovert’s body. My choices of
occupations and leisure activities (both past and present) have
left me permanently scarred with an odd sense of humor. It sits
somewhere on the border between extremely geeky and crass. On
occasion I’ll venture out into the realm of highbrow humor, but it
never ends well.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a martial arts instructor/school manager and work in the
computer entertainment industry. I also work with a small, but
talented, group of people in the Raleigh/Greensboro area doing
independent film work (get your minds out of the gutter!). We
travel to gaming and anime conventions and film all kinds of
shenanigans. We're on the YouTubes!
I’m really good at
Finding new and inventive ways to potentially hurt myself. Making
an ass of myself?
The first things people usually notice about me
No clue. I was once told I have very straight teeth?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't read as much as a should anymore, but when I am in the
mood, my tastes tends towards sci-fi and fantasy. I think the last
book I was reading was Snowcrash.
I am a movie buff: good, bad, or otherwise. Aliens is, by far, my
favorite movie. I'll watch Dune anytime it's on. My guilty pleasure
is A Knight's Tale (don't judge).
Music? I don't have an ear for it, unfortunately. If I hear
something I like, I try to track it down. My digital collection if
woefully outdated. My Pandora playlists are built around things
Front Line Assembly, Tiesto, Delerium, and Rabbit in the
I'll eat just about anything at least once. Even though I
thoroughly embrace my carnivorous cravings, but I do tend to eat
healthy/clean. Does beer count as food?
The six things I could never do without
My dog, my phone, a set of my Merrells...um...I reserve the right
to name 3 other random things when I can think of them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
When I'm going to have some free time. What's the next project I'm
going to procrastinate on doing around the house.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm not sure what typical is for me anymore. Imagine throwing a
dart blindfolded...that's kind of it. I can be a 60mph couch
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My life is nowhere near as "normal" as I expected it to be by this
age. I work, teach, game, go out drinking, go backpacking, run
races and play in the mud, go to geek conventions, and make awesome
videos. Some call it immature, I call it enjoying life. If you
can't enjoy your time here, then whats the point?
You should message me if
If your idea of fun includes any combination of the following:
running, jumping, climbing, hiking, Hypnotoad, swimming, video
games, cosplay, "geeking out", beer (Guinness gets bonus points),
ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOTOAD.
