If you know where I got my username, then you're off to a good start!

I'm a bit of a bookworm, but I'm also very much the adventurous type. To me, the books are only the first step, a teaser to a new adventure. I LOVE to wander. When I have nothing planned I'll hop on my bicycle and go for a ride around LA with my camera stuffed in my bag. Every now and then I'll also feel the urge to take off and vanish into the wilderness for a couple of days with just my tent and sleeping bag (and maybe a telescope for stargazing) to immerse myself in nature. Actually, I'm overdue for one of those. Time to plan!

On Sundays (and on random nights when I'm feeling reeeaaally lazy; we all have them) you'll most likely find me on a couch somewhere, reading an entire book in one sitting or marathoning a nerdy TV show.

Some of the things I like:
-- Nerdfighteria and YouTube in general
-- Science and technology
-- Traveling and travel hacking
-- Musicals
-- Theme parks
-- Nature and camping
-- Science fiction/fantasy
-- Fandom

I'm always in search of new experiences, and also someone to share those new experiences with. Which is why I'm here. :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a professional technogeek (translation: tech consultant/engineer) who leads a pretty busy life (who doesn't these days?), but I always try to make time for my friends and family.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm changing this to, "I want to get really good at...", because I think it's a better question to ask.

I want to get really good at....
* Photography. I bought this camera, I'm gonna use it, dammit
* Writing. I really wish I had the time to do NaNoWriMo again.
* Traveling, not just to far off places, but also to nearby places I've never been to. I've got 200,000 frequent flyer miles and counting! See also: Photography, because traveling is the main reason I got into photography to begin with.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That my state of mind seems to flip between zen-like calmness and child-like excitability.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I am a television junkie. Doctor Who, Sherlock, Mythbusters, Psych, and all things Whedon (Buffy, Angel, Firefly) are my all-time favorites, but I could seriously go on forever, so if you love TV, too, just ask and let's talk! Currently engrossed in the comic book shows (Arrow, Flash, Daredevil, Agents of SHIELD), Game of Thrones (who isn't?), Person of Interest, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, among a few others.

Favorite books: Matilda (ages 9-12), Ender's Game (ages 12-15), Dune (ages 15-18), and the A Song of Ice and Fire series (ages 18+). Also, if a movie adaptation of a book makes it onto my list of favorite movies, it's likely also a favorite book because I try to read the books before the movies. That includes Jurassic Park, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Godfather, etc. A very recent favorite is The Martian, by Andy Weir, one of the funniest books I've ever read, even including the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I also really enjoy learning about history, especially specific subjects in history rather than time periods, e.g. banking throughout history, espionage throughout history, etc.

Recent favorite movies: Guardians of the Galaxy, Big Hero 6, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Iron Man, Avengers, Star Trek (2009), among others. Disney movies deserve their own category. I specify RECENT movies because holy *bleep* this list would be long if I didn't.

My favorite songs are the ones that fit whatever situation I'm currently in (e.g. beach songs while at the beach, road trip songs while on the road, etc.). Basically I like having a soundtrack to my life. That said, I am slightly obsessed with musicals, especially Les Miserables and Disney.

I can eat almost anything, but Japanese food (sushi + ramen) and Mediterranean food (shawerma) are my current favorites.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Six things that I own that I could never do without
- My Sony A7 and RX100m2 cameras
- My laptop (w/ associated accessories)
- My smartphone (aka my portable link to Wikipedia, aka the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy)
- My personal adventure kit (i.e. backpack with spare clothes, Nalgene bottle, toiletries, etc., for those unexpected trips)
- My bike
- Something to read

Six things that I don't own that I could never do without
- The great outdoors
- Bookstores (and libraries)
- Wikipedia
- Padded floors (or better yet, bouncy floors)
- Air travel
- Outer space
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to throw myself at the ground and miss. (Hence the necessity for padded/bouncy floors in previous section.) I'm telling you, it's the secret to learning how to fly. The first part is easy. It's the second part I'm having trouble with. *ow*

Seriously, though, I think about a lot. Most of my web time is spent link-surfing history and science pages on Wikipedia or watching science YouTube videos. (I like science.)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
....planning my weekend getaway. Maybe a road trip, maybe a camping trip, who knows? I also like to indulge in "staycations" in and around the city.

Or, when I'm feeling particularly lazy, I watch lots of clever little feel-good YouTube videos like this one.

Say it with me: Awww!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My favorite dance songs are TV theme songs

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You know how people list what qualities they are drawn to? Ambition, confidence, humor, etc.? Well, I'm drawn to exuberance and passion, to outbursts of enthusiasm and unrestrained, child-like joy. Basically, I'm drawn to nerds. :)

It doesn't matter if the things you love are different from the things that I love, it's the passion that I'm attracted to. I'm looking for someone to experience new things with: a best friend, compatriot, and a partner-in-crime. A Hermione to my Harry, an Amy Pond to my Rory Williams, a Clara Oswald to my Danny Pink, a Katara to my Aang.

Ultimately, my criteria for a good match boils down to three things:
- Be passionate
- Be curious
- Be adventurous

DFTBA! (Don't forget to be awesome!)

Bonus points if you have a Disneyland annual pass, or are willing to go at least twice a year
