When I'm not working, relaxing or gaming - especially retro stuff - there's a chance I'm trying out some new beer, playing poker, singing or drumming. I'm also heavily into running and working out, and training for getting back into shape and doing distance running after an operation. I also really love the NFL and NHL, and I watch and play tennis. I don't go out a ton because I really don't love the nightlife around here, but I'm always outgoing and extroverted when I do get out. I'm more of a fan of meeting someone and getting to know and fit into a group of friends - that's my favorite way to meet people.
* Anything in terms of web design or general IT.
* I'm easily entertained. A night at home with some friends and a few drinks is just as fun as a night out.
* Getting people organized, whether it's personally or professionally.
* As nerdy as I am I can still be quite social and extroverted.
* I also used to stage act when I was younger (semi-pro stuff, one show, not touring/guildmember) and I still am into musicals and the like.

Food: Okay, I know this is certifiably insane but other than most kinds of pizza, salad and cheesecake, I don't like cheese. Like, I *really* don't. I will not eat a cheeseburger. Pretty much anything else is fair game.
Did I mention coffee?
I'm not expressly looking for a relationship, but I am certainly not averse to dating.
