Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Lover of life, creativity, and travel. I like telling and hearing
stories, and surprising people with things that make them happy. I
love making people laugh with a clever reply, but when my friends
need me, it's important to me to support them.
I grew up in LA, and moved up here for college. I fell in love with
life in the Pacific Northwest, so I decided to stick around. I'm
glad I made the move, despite missing my friends and family who
still live down there. And good Mexican food.
There's a lot of really cool stuff to do in the world, and I want
to do all of it. I've gone scuba diving off of Maui, both
officiated AND dueled with the groom at a wedding (two different
events, sadly), flown a plane over Seattle, and performed with a
taiko group in rural Japan. And I'm just getting started.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
You know how when you were a kid, you picked some job that you
wanted to be when you were a grown up? Something exciting,
something outrageous, maybe even impossible? Like a movie star, or
an astronaut. I wanted to be a video game designer. Silly right?
Anyway, I'm a video game designer.
I try to stay creative outside of just games. I like to create
things I enjoy. So I write short fiction, compose music and brew
beer. It's a great for keeping the creative juices flowing, and
allows me to express myself in more ways. I've also been teaching
myself to play guitar, and if my luck holds out, I'll have a cello
to teach myself to play soon. Learning new things is exciting to
me; the more I know about the richer everything becomes!
I love to travel. I've been to about a dozen of the states, and I'm
interested in seeing more of this country, but I'm principally
interested in international travel. So far, I've been to Ireland,
England, France, Switzerland, Italy, Greece, Canada, Japan, and
most recently, Spain. I love visiting new places and seeing what
life is like there. There's so much to the world, and I want to see
and experience as much of it as possible. I'm going to be going to
South Korea this year, and I can't wait!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making people laugh. I love doing it, too. I really like making
people happy. I'm probably the loudest introvert you'll ever meet.
I also make it a point to try to support projects my friends are
involved in, particularly if it's their project.
The first things people usually notice about me

is my beard. It seems to be the only thing, since people tend to
think I'm a red head.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

My favorite book is Moby Dick. As dark and horrifying as parts of
it are, it also speaks to so much of that which is good in
humanity. It's an inspiration to me.
My favorite movie is Blade Runner. I love the way it plays with our
expectations, both of how stories are told and of what it means to
I listen to a lot of symphonic metal and power metal. All of the
energy and skill of metal, but with no cookie monster vocals. I
like music that's triumphant; it helps keep me motivated.
Food: I'm a big fan of Asian food generally, although not sushi for
some reason. Indian buffets are dangerous places for my heart, but
I figure my modesty scotch and brandy habits help out with that
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My friends - I'm loyal to a fault.
Music - What can I say? Music keeps me sane.
Travel - There's so much world out there; I love seeing new places
and experiencing how other people live.
Books - I love reading, always have. I tend to alternate between
denser, more literary stuff and lighter nonfiction or pop
Awe - Sometimes I just stop and contemplate mankind's place in the
universe. It's pretty amazing. Try it sometime!
Curiosity - There's always something new to discover, something new
to learn. It's how people grow.
Numeracy - I'd hate to make some silly counting mistake.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
a lot of things! I'm a creative person; a designer and a story
teller, so there's usually some game or story brewing in my head.
Either that, or I'm thinking about upcoming plans with my friends,
and if there aren't enough for my taste, planning more.
I also spend a lot of time thinking about life, and how to live it
well. How can I be making the most of myself, and of the time I
have here on Earth?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
hanging out with friends, chilling with the roommates, or doing
some writing at home. Sometimes I'll be out dancing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
is that my making fun of something doesn't mean I dislike it. I
just have a sarcastic (and a bit dark) sense of humor.
