Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
By day I'm a programmer/artist for a company in North Charleston,
by night...well, I'm the same thing but for my own projects. Not to
worry, despite that exciting tendency to sit at the computer for
hours on end, I do just fine with more active hobbies. I can also
often be found covered in sawdust and wood glue after working on
whatever latest project in the workshop caught my interest.
I seem to have an inordinate amount of beginners luck, so chances
are I can hold my own at just about anything you'd want to do,
especially if I've never attempted it before. I think I'll pass on
pitting it against gravity via skydiving though...
I recently bought a new (well, old) house with a bunch of land out
in the country near where I26 and 95 cross - which means my
neighbors are all outside of air cannon range :). Yes, that was in
fact how I determined viable properties while I was house
It also means sometime in the next year or two, I'll probably
branch out from the standard dogs and cats I've always had into
horses and chickens, maybe a few other critter variants as well.
Anyone have any suggestions as I plan that out?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working in North Charleston, living out in the country, and
racking up miles on my Xterra in between. Like pretty much everyone
else around here on OKC it seems, I've recently moved back to the
Charleston area. I grew up around here, but I've been gone long
enough that while I remember most of the main landmarks, I've
forgotten how they connect together. It's like looking at a jigsaw
puzzle freshly dumped out of the box - I know how things look in
small pieces but still sorting out how they fit together.
Outside the day job, if you can think of it, chances are I've
either made it, plan to make it, or decided there was something
else more interesting to make first. Currently I'm experimenting
with calculating arrow impacts via audio triangulation so I can
make a digital archery target - think video game played with a real
bow and arrows.
If you're curious about the sort of things I build, I've tossed
pictures of some of my projects in the one gallery on here.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Since the summary is there to spur initial interest, I suppose this
section is to show how I'm useful to have around? So lets
•I can fix or rebuild anything in a house. That door that wont
quite shut? Sure, easily dealt with. Heck I can build a whole new
door from scratch. I've got a good track record with fixing most
everything else too, even (especially?) if I have no idea what I'm
•Need food? I can probably come up with something with whatever
random ingredients are on hand. Homemade ravioli stuffed with baked
beans and hotdogs is surprisingly good.
•Reflexively catching fumbled stuff, as long as I don't think about
it anyway. Its a minor miracle I've never grabbed a knife by the
sharp end. Or a testament to my skill, lets go with that.
•That jar you need on the top shelf? Err...well...I can certainly
climb up and get it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My hair; shame its faded to a more normal color as I've aged
though. When I was real young, it was a dark almost blood red.
Supposedly, mom once had some lady accost her while shopping at the
mall, demanding to know what she used to dye my hair that color.
When informed there was no way she'd dye a 1 year olds hair, and
that it was my natural color, the lady started yelling, demanding
mom tell the truth and give up the "secret" to my hair color. So I
guess all my life, women have been jealous of my hair? :P
Some drunk lady at the grocery store recently kept saying "You have
the most beautiful hair I've ever seen" every time we crossed paths
in the store, so I guess its still true.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I'll read/watch/listen/eat just about anything, but let's try being
a little more specific:
I've slowed down a bit but still probably average at least
5-10/month as long as I can find things that look interesting.
Mostly been on an urban fantasy kick for awhile, but I've read
nearly everything at one point or another.
I'm not picky - as long as it doesn't drag on, its probably
enjoyable enough. Bonus points for explosions.
Not a fan of reality tv, but the rest is good - cop shows (mostly
just since there's nearly always a new episode out due to how many
there are), and especially all the fantasy/scifi stuff that's been
coming out the past few years.
Primarily rock in all its variations, with a little pop and country
thrown in for good measure. Generally favor things with a
faster/stronger beat than the softer stuff.
Anything but fish and shrimp. Canned tuna fish being the lone
exception to fish, and no, why that's ok with my taste buds makes
no sense to me either. I cook probably 95% of what I eat from
scratch, even down to pasta and tortillas so when eating out, I
like to find new ideas to try at home. Mostly though, I tend to
stick to the core food groups: pasta, pizza, and fajitas. Also,
I've found I can live for approximately a week off just oreos and
sweet tea. The world starts to vibrate at the end of that week
I guess that still wasn't super specific, oh well.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Assuming we're talking modern world, not post-apocalyptic:
• Computers with multiple monitors
• Functional kitchen
• A Towel
Of course, if it *is* a post-apocalyptic world:
• Spool of fishing line
• Watertight jug
• A Towel
Any other basic requirements could be built or scavenged from that
Also, bonus points if you come with a towel.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whether I should fill my moat with alligators or sharks. Gators are
traditional and easier to take care of, but sharks are better
suited to having lasers mounted to them. Also, I need to dig a

big enough inside.

cannibalism really that rampant? Did I miss the zombie
What was it I was just thinking about? Its on the tip of my tongue,
I swear it was brilliant...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Helping kittens cross the street and getting little old ladies out
of the tree.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
China thinks I'm a doctor. Anyone know how many times you have to
be addressed as "Dr...." by medical journals before it becomes

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
It could be we're just not right for each other. Maybe we'll argue,
or annoy each other non stop. Maybe we'll have an awkward date and
walk away with food poisoning, vowing never to speak to each other
[cue epic/uplifting music]
But maybe none of that will happen. Maybe birds will fly in heart
shapes around us wherever we walk, while foxes spread rose petals
on the ground in front.
The question is, should we risk becoming arch nemesis, or just
write things off without even taking the chance?
