My self-summary
Lover of life, creativity, and travel. I like telling and listening to stories, and surprising people with things that make them happy. I love making people laugh with a clever comment, but when my friends need me, it's important to me to support them.

I grew up in LA, and moved to Seattle for college. I fell in love with the Pacific Northwest, so I decided to stick around. I'm glad I made the move, but I make it a point to visit LA at least once a year.

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), 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
You know how when you were a kid, you dreamed about being something exciting, something outrageous, maybe even impossible when you grew up? Like a movie star, or an astronaut. I wanted to be a video game designer. Silly right? Anyway, I'm a video game designer. It brings me a lot of satisfaction to know that my work brings joy to lots of people all around the world.

I try to stay creative outside of just games. I like to create things I enjoy. So I write short fiction and compose music. They're great for keeping the creative juices flowing, and allow me to express myself in more ways. Learning new things is exciting to me; the more I know the richer everything becomes!

I love to travel. I've been to about a dozen of the states, and nearly as many countries across Europe and Asia. 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 really good at
making people laugh. I love doing it, too. I really like making people happy. I'm probably the loudest introvert you'll ever meet.
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. Did you?
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 be human.

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 modest scotch and brandy habits help out with that some.
The six things I could never do without
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 fiction.
Creativity - I've always got a few side projects going. It's practically compulsive behavior.
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
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 in the world?
On a typical Friday night I am
hanging out with friends, reading something interesting, or working on one of my many side projects.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
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.
You should message me if
you think "It'll make a great story" is a good enough reason to do something.

I'm looking for an intelligent woman who has at least a solid direction for what she wants to be doing in life, and strong sense of who she is. If that's you, I'd love to hear from you!
