My self-summary
Welcome to my profile!

If you’ve made it this far, you’ve either already checked out my pictures and think I'm at least relatively handsome enough (thank you), or you put more weight in words and are reading this first. Either way, thank you for being awesome and getting this far!

So, to name a few paradoxes about me, I’m a little random, intense, relaxed, out going, and shy.

As you can probably tell, I play guitar and sing (mostly at open mics). In general, I enjoy performing on stage and have even tried my hand at stand up comedy... for shits and giggles.

Also, disclaimer, I'm wicked nerdy. I make no apologies for this and kind of hope that you're similarly nerdy in some way, shape, or form.

Creative mind and writer by nature, I'm currently working on multiple table top games as my outlet. I also have my MFA in Creative Writing (specifically screenwriting) and try to utilize that ability however possible.

I prefer low-key situations, small gatherings, dive bars; Sunday’s over Friday’s (especially during Football season); A Netflix binge session over a crowded club. And, I’m usually down for pretty much any kind of game... board game, video game, mildly physical game (pool, mini golf, Buck Hunter?)... but really, I enjoy harmless competition.

I also really enjoy playing disc golf. It's just a great way to get out, take a hike, and swear at trees that get in the way.

Generally, if good people are involved, then it sounds like a good time to me. I’m also big on non-small talk... not to say that I can't handle small talk, but, it's not that exciting.

I have lived in NJ, OH, MA, SC, NH, SC, and MA, in that order.
6 tattoos (and counting... I don't want to be covered in them, but I know there are still a few more in my future (all small at the moment)), love bourbon, scotch, and IPAs.
I do my best to keep evolving, learning, and growing.
And for you Meyers-Briggs fans, I’m an INFJ… this article does a fun job of decoding that (some more accurately than others, but it's a basic idea and mostly true):

What I’m doing with my life
I'm mainly working on launching my own table top game company - creating games and trying to make sense of the business side of things.
I’m really good at
Corny dad jokes...

It must be tough for a woman going through her OKC inbox to find a decent message... it's like finding a needle in a hey-stack :) http://i.imgur.com/oEhVvjZ.gif

listening, helping with problems, writing, contextual/situational humor, super smash bros. N64 version, cooking (when I have someone to cook for, otherwise I don't usually go too fancy).
The first things people usually notice about me
I'd like to say it's my strikingly handsome face and cheerful disposition, but I'd have to guess it's probably my beard... I got LASIK, so it's no longer my glasses, but it probably was before...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Let's see... to name a few...

Books: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Giver, The Zombie Survival Guide, The Golden Compass (and His Dark Materials in general, truly one of the best series of books ever), The Tao of Pooh, Hamlet, the Hunger Games series, the Harry Potter series, and The Watchmen (if you never read more than 1 comic/graphic novel in your life, make this that 1).

Movies: Stranger Than Fiction, The Invention of Lying, The Usual Suspects, Lucky Number Slevin, Serenity, Love Actually, Ratatouille, Pitch Perfect, Guardians of the Galaxy, Field of Dreams, basically any Marvel movie...

Shows: Doctor Who, The Walking Dead, How I Met Your Mother, Firefly, Dollhouse, Parks and Recreation, Breaking Bad, Community, House of Cards, Pushing Daisies, Chuck, Sense8, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy.

Music: The Avett Brothers, Old Crow Medicine Show, Mumford and Sons, Radiohead, Damien Rice, Ani Difranco, Pink Floyd, and in general classic rock and current alt. rock (along with at least a mild appreciation for just about all types of music... even if it's band specific).

Video Games: COD, Rock Band, Madden, Peggle, Final Fantasy VII, and I definitely appreciate games with intriguing puzzles.

Food: Pretty much all food is good food... I've been on a recent sushi kick... And I'll almost never turn down a good burger.
The six things I could never do without
Non-Material: Family, Friends, Conversation, Alone Time, Creativity, Love (in all senses of what that holds).

Material: Guitar, Computer, Card/Board Games, Phone, Kindle, Xbox
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Anything and everything... There really are no general categories of/ reoccurring thoughts that go through my head, I just think a lot relative to what's up at the moment.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'll say I can (quite shamelessly) be a homebody. I enjoy hanging out with friends, playing games, enjoying some drinks, laughs, and an easy end to the week... That being said, I'm also up for going out - playing pool, karaoke, trivia, cover bands, original bands (if they sound good, or it's a venue I like), drinks at a dive bar, movies, or anything else that might seem cool/fun.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I got both the hey-stack joke and accompanying gif from reddit :/
You should message me if
You should message me if!
- There were things in my profile that gave you this reaction. http://i.imgur.com/7WpF4NC.gif
- You're looking for someone that you can share some of your interests/hobbies with and vice versa.
- You like any one (or all) of the following: Doctor Who, Joss Whedon creations, board games (both simple and really involved), Magic The Gathering, Zombie related stuff, hypothetical zombie survival talk, trivia, bowling, shooting pool, disc golf (frisbee golf), corny jokes, Call of Duty, or super smash bros. n64... I know in the end none of that stuff really matters, but it could be a start to a beautiful friendship at least.
- You enjoy conversations ranging from politics and religion, to zombie survival tactics and food.
- You're looking for an eventual best friend that you can enjoy sexy-fun playtime with (http://i.imgur.com/hJxHAVG.gif link SFW). I mean, there are no guarantees that I'm going to be that eventual best friend, but I'm not a random hook-up type guy (quasi-old-fashioned... courtship, chivalry, and what not), so that's what I'm looking for.
- You made it this far and you're still reading with some level of curiosity/interest... which is either very concerning, or it means you're insanely awesome! I'm going to guess insanely awesome...

Lastly, I like to put a random-ish video here and change it up from time to time, so...
I think this is the kind random/weird/awesomeness of who I'm looking for...

Someone that can listen to that song and picture it being a fun, upbeat first dance (wedding) song where the bridal party is slowly but surely brought onto the dance floor (maybe in some ridiculous pre-planned dance (possibly with a bit of swing dancing involved (and a dance circle toward the end?))) as the song continues... I don't know why, but whenever I hear this song I always picture how much fun that would be... call me a quasi-hippy slightly hopeless romantic that randomly thinks about stuff like that.
