My self-summary
Note: This profile's undergoing some edits due to it being a while since I updated it. Please pardon any wonkiness that may ensue as editing occurs.

I'm a writer and a game designer, although I don't get to devote as much time and energy to either as I would like. The writing is mostly long-form fiction (think novellas and longer), and the game design trends toward tabletop RPGs like D&D, but I have a big interest in video game design as well. Being a college student and currently working as an intern at a video game publisher eat up a good chunk of the rest of my time.

In my downtime I love to read all sorts of books and play the occasional video game. I also like to get outdoors, to go hiking and backpacking and climb trees and end up on the roofs of buildings. I think every day should be an adventure, if it's just the small adventure of talking to a random stranger on the bus or checking out the new store that just opened across the street. I think adventuring in a fantasy world would be fun, but there's a lot of rad stuff here in reality that can be just as exciting.

I love plants and animals and nature in general. I sometimes say hi to crows and seeing songbirds like thrushes makes me smile (they are so cute).

I am adjectives, onomatopoeia, and visual data.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to write a lot and engaging in game design whenever I can. I just moved to Seattle after graduating from UCI in June (Information & Computer Science/Studio Art double major) and am trying to get to know new people in the city and adjust to living somewhere awesome after spending the last five years in Orange County.
I’m really good at
Writing fiction in an absurdly short amount of time. Just ask any of my friends who have watched me do NaNoWriMo. 10,000 word days are common, especially when I realize the end of November is just around the corner. (I'm going to try to follow the ~2,000 words a day pace this next year, instead of procrastinating. Really.) But apparently it works! I've completed the competition eight years running.

Dancing. Ballroom, latin, swing, ballet, tap dance, I love them all. I'll even give modern dance a begrudging acceptance. (I have nothing against the style, but some of the people that use it are a little too self-important for my taste.) East Coast Swing is probably the dance style I'm best at.

Running tabletop games, be they board games or full-on, D&D-style tabletop RPGs. I'd like to think I make a decent GM these days. I also am moderately good at hosting events in general, but I haven't had very many chances to give it a go recently.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair. Pretty long, very curly, and a generally frizzy nuisance. But I'm attached to it, so I guess it can stay. :P

Other than that, I can be pretty quiet when I first meet someone, so that might be something they notice? This question's sort of hard without getting an external perspective. I should make a survey... (You could also meet up with me sometime and tell me what the first thing you notice about me is! Please don't say "your undamaged, ripe for harvesting kidneys." That would be a little creepy. I might laugh anyway, though.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien, anything by Chuck Wendig, The Dark Tower by Stephen King, The Dresden Files and Codex Alera by Jim Butcher, the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs, anything by Terry Pratchett, anything by Neil Gaiman (especially American Gods and Neverwhere), the Otherland series by Tad Williams, the Dragonlance trilogy by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman, The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway, and I love almost anything (books on this list included) that falls into Sci-Fi/Fantasy, although I'll dig most genres if the writing appeals to me.

Movies:
Casablanca, Roman Holiday, Serenity, The Matrix (I like the original the best, but don't really have anything against the sequels), Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Inception, Another Earth, Worldbuilder, Lord of the Rings trilogy

Shows:
The only show I remotely keep up with these days is Castle. The Daily Show and The Colbert Report are also fantastic whenever I get a chance to catch up on them. Other shows I like include: Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek: TNG, Eureka, Burn Notice, Firefly, Cowboy Bebop, and Doctor Who.

Music:
Imogen Heap, The Paper Kites, Iron and Wine, The Postal Service, Silence, Tryad, The Weepies, Greg Laswell, Mellowdrone, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Heifervescent, Oceanlab, soundtracks from The Elder Scrolls video games and Mass Effect

Food:
Japanese-style curry
Tortellini with alfredo sauce and garlic bread. SO DELICIOUS.
Salads (of all sorts)
Mexican food of all sorts.
The six things I could never do without
1. My friends. They keep me sane.
2. Sentence fragments.
3. The loose rules of the English language.
4. The Internet.
5. Music and dance.
6. Imagination.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Game design problems in/for the sci-fi tabletop game I'm working on right now. Plots and characters for the stories and game scenarios I'm writing. How much fun it would be to explore space, or adventure through an unknown land. The future, and how it's exciting and terrifying and I can't wait and how I want to cherish the time I have left in my current situation(s) all at the same time.
On a typical Friday night I am
I traditionally spend my Friday nights getting dinner with a group of friends and then hanging out and talking, drinking, playing board games, playing frisbee in the dark, or other activities that strike our fancy. Sometimes several at once! Although the best is when we go out and it's a nice night where we can climb to the top of a big hill and look out at all the lights but be above the sound of all the cars and people. Approve++
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a completely irrational fear of zombies! They freak me out like no other, despite not actually existing. Despite this, I still really liked Zombieland. Go figure.

Oh, and I'm super-worried about the quality of my writing. I always get nervous showing other people my fiction, because even though I know *rationally* that it's at least solid and probably not going to cause them to gouge out their eyes, there's always that little voice in the back of my head going "but what if it is that bad?" Luckily, none of my readers have had that reaction, which is good. Obtaining replacement eyes is such a pain.
I’m looking for
  • Guys and girls who like bi guys
  • Ages 19–28
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You'd like to go grab coffee or a drink sometime. I'm primarily looking for people to date right now, but if you want someone to just hang out with platonically that's awesome too and feel free to message me. (New friends are great!) I must admit I feel I come across better in person, but if you'd like to be penpals, that is rad too.

(Oh, and if you're local and looking for a tabletop RPG game, since I just moved to Seattle, I'm looking to start up a gaming group! I'm totally willing to run Castles and Crusades, anything Fate, or my home-brew sci-fi game I'm working on.)

Keep in mind I would appreciate a message that has more content than just "hey" or "'sup" or similar. I have a very hard time thinking of anything to reply to for those messages. Effort in one's messages is appreciated! :D
