Politically I'm unapologetically liberal. I'm also an atheist, and although I have strong opinions on some subjects, I always have an open mind and am not afraid to admit when I'm wrong.
I was born in North Carolina, but spent most of my youth in Green Bay, Wisconsin before moving to Nashville. People sometimes ask me if I'm a Packers fan. "Fan" is probably too strong a word, especially since I don't follow football much, but they are my team by default. :)
Regarding relationships, I value communication above all. We should feel like we can be open and honest with one another. That doesn't mean we have to share every detail of our lives with each other if we don't want to. Living individual lives is fine. But I do think that if the relationship is serious, we should feel comfortable talking to each other about important things.
If I weren't a game developer, I would most likely be a physicist. The idea of searching for an understanding of the universe at a fundamental level really intrigues me. Film production comes in at a close third place.
Eventually I'd love to travel the world with someone special, staying at least one night in every country and recording the entire trip with videos and pictures. Yes, even North Korea and Antarctica! Maybe those could be saved for the climactic finish...
I'm also good at remaining cool-headed during any type of argument or debate. Looking at the facts, removing bias, and trying to find an outcome that works for everyone is something I've found I can do relatively well.
Besides that boring stuff, it seems that I have a knack for creating corny jokes. Like slap-your-forehead, groan-and-roll-your-eyes, head-shakingly corny jokes. But you're just going to have to message me if you want me to prove it!

TV: Breaking Bad, House of Cards, The Big Bang Theory, Community, 30 Rock, Arrested Development, Modern Family, The Office, Lost, House, Survivor, Big Brother.
Music: I know this is super cliche, but it really depends on the song. Genres aren't as important to me as individual songs are. But as far as bands go, I really like Breaking Benjamin, Disturbed, Three Days Grace, Flyleaf, The Offspring, Godsmack, Michael Jackson, Kelly Clarkson, Lorde, Maroon 5.

Oh, and the dull adult stuff, like how to structure my future, and what I can do to complete my goals in life.
Also, in case this wasn't obvious, my missions as a secret agent tend to be on Friday nights, so if you message me and don't get a reply for a couple of days, it was probably because I was sneaking into a baddie's house or flying a plane with one finger or being tortured or something. But don't worry! I will get back to you as soon as I'm finished cutting holes in things with watch-lasers.
I'm also happy to talk about what we have in common, argue about what we don't have in common, or just goof around getting to know each other. Intelligence and a good sense of humor are huge bonuses!
You can expect at least one reply from me, even if it's just to politely tell you that I'm not interested.
