My self-summary
I could probably fill this space with way too much information to read but I've decided that less is more so I'll try to keep it brief. Probably the most important thing to know is that I love what I do, and I'm happy in life.

I'm a really easy person to get along with. I was once told "you can tell when a programmer is an extrovert because he looks at your shoes when he's talking to you instead of his own." For a programmer I'm very extroverted: I look you in the eyes and everything!

I'm looking for someone who enjoys life, knows what they want, and who thinks puns are, in fact, a legitimate form of humor.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a degree in game development, but that's not always what I do. I'm a programmer, and while games are my passion, I've worked on medical, fitness, and educational apps. Right now I'm working at a major studio on a major MMO.

My current big goal is planning a trip to Italy next year.

I love my job, and I love my life. I'm ready to share that happiness and comfort.
I’m really good at
Anything involving computers or people. I'm told I have a way with words, which I suppose makes me a social nerd. I'm big on psychology, and I love to debate; anything from serious topics to completely random nonsense.
The first things people usually notice about me
It depends on if I've decided to grow a beard that month...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Myst, Harry Potter, Dan Brown, Ender's Game
Movies: A wide range from the Matrix to Big Fish to the Notebook to the Dark Knight.
Music: U2, Darren Hayes, Linkin Park, Blue October, 80s, Michael Jackson, Innerpartysystem, Passion Pit, Infected Mushroom, Skrillex (don't judge,) Gotye, Glitch Mob, techno, indie, and kind of the same principal as movies
Shows: Supernatural, Flash, Arrow, House, Lie to Me, Fringe, Chuck, House of Cards, Numb3rs, Heroes, Game of Thrones, Sherlock, Criminal Intent, Walking Dead
Food: Steak and potatoes. Also a big fan of Italian in general.
Games: RPGs (Square.) Any fun multi-player FPS to play with friends (Halo, L4D.) Prince of Persia, Mass Effect, Battlefront, Last of Us, and many more.
The six things I could never do without
The sun, my computer, dogs, coconuts, laughter, mitosis
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Too much to list here. I generally drive a lot (though at least my house is close to work now,) so I have plenty of time to think. I tend to think about the world around me. I do have terrible short-term memory, so I spend a good portion of my day trying to remember if I'm supposed to be doing something important...
On a typical Friday night I am
There's no typical "Friday" for me, and I'm a night owl so nights are my day. When I want to do something, I do it. If I go out somewhere, my favorite thing to do is eat or if I can find someone to go with, hike. If I'm staying in, I like to game (video, board, or otherwise) with friends, or anything involving proximity with someone special. I'm more into doing active things than clubbing or bar hopping.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Not really very private, but my only two fears are dolls and spiders. The doll thing's more of a running gag at this point, but they are creepy. Spiders are no joke though. I don't mess with arachnids. I'll take care of any bugs I need to, except those. Unrelated, I've also realized I prefer the high ground...
You should message me if
1. You know what you're looking for.
2. You want to learn more about me from me rather than my profile.
3. You like to laugh. That one's critical.
4. You're happy in life. Life is good.
5. You know a lot about a little and a little about a lot.
6. You can teach me something interesting.
(Duck-face pictures are a deal breaker without a compelling argument)
