My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'll just apologize now for all the dry exposition before the porn joke, but now you have something to look forward to:

I'm sociable, self-aware, and self-deprecating.

You may find this charming.

I'm much better at subtext, body language and intuition than Spanish, and usually never hold things against anyone -- but I'll be the first to point them out.

You might (endearingly) despise this.

I do stupid boy things, but can also cook, clean and give basic fashion advice (oldest of 5 kids, tutored by gay godparents).

Your dog and/or cat will love me.

You will have mixed feelings about this.

Born in LA and raised near San Francisco -- if douchebags were rainbows, I can spot colors you haven't even named yet.

My chances of meeting anyone new/awesome in my small windows of free time is a topic I'd rather approach with (unjustified) optimism.

So I'm basically here to earn a few new female friends (most of my closest friends growing up have been ladies) that aren't my co-workers.

That said, let's all take a moment to thank the internet for the help, when it could have easily just paved this whole site over with more lucrative ventures like porn or Farmville 3.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
What do I do?

I work in the videogame industry (with some comics and TV thrown in for good measure) -- writing/developing stories, characters, dialog, doing design, voice over/motion capture direction and consulting work.

There are also a ton of business and managerial aspects that make me grateful I'm not forced to wear khakis.

I love my career, and it's allowed me to visit amazing cities and countries (Russia, Poland, Germany & Canada in the last few years alone), though I rarely get to enjoy the sights. Just the cultures.

It can be highly exciting, twice as exhausting and three times as difficult to describe what I actually do on a typical day.

But I'm far from the mouthbreathing stereotype your imagination is currently painting me as.

When I'm not working, I'm usually trying to find great new bars & restaurants, playing guitar, or dicking around with friends at some event we were invited to at the last second.

I muse over the idea of road trips and microadventures when I can find the time, but I'm equally okay spending a few days at home trying to wind down, relax and (maybe) make up some unslept hours.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Cooking; if bacon were a culture, I'd have to pay reparations.

- Using penis jokes to convey poignant philosophies. Think Bob Saget meets Mr. Feeny.

- Perpetually inventing (and then forgetting) new swear words, catchphrases.

- Not spoiling the plot twist or ending of everything for everyone.

- Forgetting my multiplication tables.

- Taking better care of others than myself.

- Hammering the most terrible scenarios into something worth laughing about.

- Drifting into an accent/inflection similar to the inhabitants of wherever Christopher Walken comes from.

- Taking mediocre photos of brunches, wet streets and the weirdos that make this city so special (IG: Frozenstar)

- Doing the wrong things the right way. My sense of altruism borders on self-destruction.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Up close? My eyes.
They change between green and blue.

Medium range? My eyebrows.
You could fight crime with them. But you shouldn't -- because that'd be gross.

Across the room?
You might have caught me eye-bangin' your entree. I have a fat soul.

Next thing people notice?

I'm not a Bro, but I've mastered the art of covertly bullying them in their own language for your amusment, surviving fist-hugs.

Peter Parker is my spirit animal, which is perfect for someone who gets mild vertigo (yet loves rooftops) and is arachnophobic.

Please don't confuse this with Tobey Maguire.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books:
I prefer non-fiction and how to's (even if I never actually learn how to do anything).

But... I'm a total sucker for a few classics and well-written superheroes, post-apocalyptia, and noiresque crime stories.

Movies:
Ghostbusters, Leon the Professional, Memento, Goldeneye, Home Alone, Scott Pilgrim, The Prestige, Man on Wire, Moon, Army of Darkness, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Life Aquatic, Scream, Jurassic Park, Robocop, Zombieland, Tremors, Back to the Future II, Some Like It Hot, Empire Strikes Back, The Rocketeer, Sleepy Hollow, Tombstone -- these are just the beginning of a very long list. I figured there's a chance someone might have at least heard of those.

Most things written by Aaron Sorkin or starring post-Space Jam Bill Murray are good bets.

I also know classic American horror pretty well (kinda my job), but like to dive into the weirder stuff when couch lounging with friends.

Shows:
Homeland, Californication, Justified, Boardwalk Empire, Sons of Anarchy, Newsroom, The Wire, Terriers, Breaking Bad, Fringe, Supernatural, Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, True Blood (guilty pleasures), How to Make it in America, 30 Rock, Archer, Bored to Death, Arrested Development, Workaholics, How I Met Your Mother, Studio 60, Louie, The Daily Show, classic Nicktoons/Snick shows.

Music:
Melodic punk bands, classic rock, heavy metal, acoustic sessions, grunge, ambient synth, swampy/boxy blues and orchestrated scores.

Specifics?
Album Leaf, Black Angels, Bon Iver, CCR, Caspian, Black Keys, BB King, NOFX, Interpol, Japandroids, Springsteen, Billie Holliday, Silverstein, Sleigh Bells, Senses Fail, Early November, Mumm-Ra, Explosions in the Sky, Rancid, Bad Religion, Death Cab, Yuck!, Johnny Cash, Tom Waits, The XX, Taking Back Sunday, Decemberists, Eels, Get Up Kids, No Use For A Name, Phillip Glass, Clint Mansell, Ryan Adams, Hall & Oates, Pixies, (classic) Ataris, Joseph Arthur, Transit, Incubus, Dick Dale, Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, Beastie Boys, Jimmy Eat World, Joy Formidable, Dorena, Movielife, Motion City Soundtrack, The National, Straylight Run, The 1975, Japandroids, Yeah Yeah Yeahs...

Basically, any tune that can help encapsulate a mood or a moment, whether it's from your collection or mine.

Food:
Vigilanterian -- I only eat animals who commit crimes?

IRL:
Comfort foods, tacos, vegan foods that surprise me... Bacon...

Also... eggs. benedict.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Google Maps, contact lenses, a calculator, clean socks & 2 dependencies I've yet to discover...

Maybe one of them is you!

Or John Stamos. Both of those would be weird.

But one of them would be a rock 'n rollin' Uncle Jesse.

Co-dependency is more dangerous than 90's sitcom uncles folks. It's science.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- Thoughts I donate to fictional people
- How to make explosions more intellectually stimulating
- What you can and can't do in outer space (awesome people defy this)
- Animals doing crazy things
- Cinematography ("Movie Fingers")
- Weird things the internet showed me
- Why I didn't write that awesome thing down
- How to survive zombie attacks
- Why I slip into a Walkenesque accent when I'm facepalming through overtime.
- Tacos. Lots of tacos
- If vegans can eat eggs if they're also pro-choice

And more common fare:
- What I should cook
- How to suck less at guitar (I broke 7 fingers once)
- How my friends are doing
- Shows/games/movies I've missed
- What real vacations feel like
- Remembering how to spell words I haven't used in awhile
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Finding a good meal, grabbing a drink, researching silly things (most only wish they could get paid for), or playing/listening to music.

There is also the off chance that a dance party featuring a 6' 7" giant spinning in a blanket cape could break out.

I will be busy taking blackmail photos.

But usually, the answer is "working".
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Choose one? I'd rather someone try to wrestle it out of me. I'm an open book with a crappy lock -- it's basically there for decoration.

But, for participation points...

- Fear Spiders, Love Spider-Man
- My tattoo has a hidden quote from Hook
- "I don't sports..."

My strongest conviction is that the person offended most by a topic is the person who should be laughing hardest -- humor exists as a balance to trauma.

I hate pictures of me, and trust others even less to do it for me -- so you get silly faces until you read my walls of text and earn something better.

Parents and kid brothers love me. Be warned.

UPDATE:
Due to the swarm of dudes choking my inbox with questions, here are some of the game franchises I've worked on:

UPDATE 2:
Nope! That totally backfired. It just lead to MORE dude messages (I appreciate the love, just not the kind I signed up for guys).

My answer is now just "big, awesome, non-japanese ones you've heard of". Also -- some terrible ones (since this section is all about admission)

Now go! Back to finding women who find strong thumbs attractive. And try not to ruin it for the rest of us?
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you think we'd be superbesties -- make the first move!

Dating rules make starting friendships kinda weird.

I'd rather not be lumped in with creepers, stalkers or seem overcomplimentary when I try to (platonically) message a girl first.

Stupid gender-based societal conformity... (And dudes who creep in friend zones -- we all see through you!)

So, whether it's a friend, fling or something more that you're looking for, I'm just looking the be the right guy for the right time.

So, if you'd like to:

- Have a hilarious conversation
- Have a startlingly introspective conversation
- Show me your city
- Meet new people
- Grab a drink
- Make me feel like a sellout by sharing your craft, passion or artform
- Pillage a series of food carts
- Share your awesome music
- Learn why people keep crouching over your digital corpses
- Judge me for being forced to take my own pictures :)
- Try to make me blush

No pressure here. Message away...
