Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A magician wandered along the beach, but no one needed him.
I'm a programmer. At my finger tips I have the power to traverse
linked lists and create clickable message boxes.
Getting better at cooking is something I've been working on and I
find the experimentation involved to be exciting. Writing short
stories is an occasional side hobby of mine. I'm fascinated by the
science behind things and learning about the the why's and how's of
the universe. I'm starting to get into fitness. I like to read and
listen to music and watch movies and play board games other things
normal people like to do.
Finally, hilariously bad sci-fi movies are the greatest gift given
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Programming all kinds of things. As a programmer I get to be a part
of rather unique creative process. There's an interesting flow and
thought process involved with being a programmer. You get to watch
your planning, your logic, your algorithms slowly come to life as
you tackle new challenges. Plus its totally sweet when I press a
button and things explode and I can go "I coded that!"
And then it crashes and I'm sad.
I spent three years doing contract work with Microsoft and now I'm
at Amazon. Go figure.
I've been working pretty hard at getting fit. It's been a long road
and will continue to be one, but I'm getting there. Spent a good
chunk of my life being really unhealthy, but I've realized that was
stupid and I'm working on fixing that. So I pick up heavy things.
Then I put them back down. It's very exciting.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Having random factoid knowledge about the topic at hand.
Having awesome debates about video games and their surrounding
Losing my car keys even though I was just holding them.
Making people laugh.

Help your potential matches find common interests.
The Warlord Chronicles, Shogun, Malazan Book of the Fallen,
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Gates of Fire.
I tend to flop between fantasy/sci-fi and historical fiction. I
like things that are character driven. So give me a nice cast of
characters and I'm all set.
Oh this is hard, so here's a random selection of the movies I've
rated well on Netflix:
Dr. Horrible, Ip Man, anything Pixar, My Name is Bruce,
I can probably spend the next year filling this out. I like a good
movie. And I know that is an easy answer. But wait! I also like a
bad movie. Seriously, have you seen Sharktopus? Its a shark
combined with an octopus. How is that not awesome?
Doctor Who, Firefly, Arrested Development, Community, Futurama, The
Why does everything I like get canceled?
Rock, metal, punk, classical, bitchin video game remixes. Honestly
anything with a solid melody that I can hum along to I'll listen to
Things that are delicious. Spicy food. Thai, Italian, Portuguese.
I've started cooking for myself, so I like to throw spices at
things and hope it comes out tasty.
Also buffalo wings are my weakness.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Hot sauce. Frank's/Sriracha/Tapatio, spicy delicious
Turtle, my cat. He's so soft and fuzzy!
Hugs. They're fucking awesome.
Learning. I couldn't live without discovering something new each
Flailing. Its the secret solution to all of life's problems.
A calculator because I can't count.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Batman. And intergalactic space robots. And intergalactic space
I have an ever growing list of things one should and shouldn't when
in a horror movie situation. Don't read from the book. Especially
if its written in Latin. Double especially if its covered in blood
and bound with human skin.
Writing. Or the things I'd like to write if I wasn't busy not
writing. Even more specifically, I think a lot about the
setting of the things I'd like to write. The reason I
haven't sat down and written these ideas is because I'm way more
interested in building the world - the people, the places, the
myths and legends, the history and culture - than I am in writing a
narrative. Somewhere in my head floats three fairly realized story
ideas that I strive to one day have on some paper.
I think a lot about varying hobby programming projects. Things like
what they are, what I want from them, how I'll implement them, what
sort of challenges I'll face. Most of my projects are games or game
related, so I draw a lot of inspiration from the video games I
play. I like to think about what features I think I could improve
or what new idea could really work.
The stegosaurus that fights the T-Rex in Fantasia is a champion and
doesn't get the respect he deserves.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I like to pick a direction and drive somewhere.
More often than not though I am out with friends, sometimes a bar,
sometimes going on an adventure in Kirkland but always fun times.

I own a really green shirt.
