My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a modern nerd who aspires to become a fierce gentleman.

I think there's something irreplaceable and satisfying about board games. I love sitting around a table with strangers and friends, nudging pieces about a board, and making snarky asides between turns.

I love improv because it teaches acceptance and willingness to believe. I play Dungeons and Dragons because I enjoy the act of storytelling (and, to a lesser degree, crunching numbers to optimize things).

I think nerd cultures of all sorts are wonderful because they inspire self-assured playfulness, unbridled enthusiasm, and encourage you to get passionate about something you enjoy. I like to hear about new fandoms - what are yours?

Anyway, I ramble. I invite you to stop and send me a message if I've piqued your interest. :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well, I graduated from the University of Washington a few years ago, and have been working in the Seattle area since then. I'm currently employed for a marine media website. But, while I like my work, I've always thought that my life should be more about the friends I keep and the hobbies I have than the job I do.

For the past year or so I've been practicing historic fencing as part of the Society of Creative Anachronism (SCA). It's become a relatively major facet of my life in a short time. If you're not familiar with it, think The Three Musketeers - Swash! Buckle! Parry! Pose!

I enjoy the SCA because... well, swords! No really, I find it enjoyable to study the techniques used by the old masters and see if they still work when pitted against modern fencing styles. Also, where else do you get to engage in swordplay with people who are secretly not left handed, and face a foe who has a'studied his Agrippa?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
... feeding my meeples.
... Star Trek trivia.
... swishing a cloak and wearing a cavalier hat.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think it's my laugh. People tell me its distinctive, and I try my best to use it frequently.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Food: My favorite dining experiences are diners, dim sum, and Hong Kong cafes.

I've made something of a tradition to host a Chinese Hot Pot style dinner for my birthday each year. I love that it's a shared culinary experience, and one that is inherently unifying.

That being said, I enjoy most types of cuisine and have a number of dishes I occasionally crave... saag paneer, pasta carbonara, chicken fried steak. A little bit of everything, really.

Games: I find that recently I've been enjoying cooperative games. While I have a competitive side, what really I'm looking for is some sort of challenge to overcome.

Tabletop - Dominion, Agricola, Ticket to Ride, Dungeon Fighter, Sentinels of the Multiverse, Dungeons and Dragons.

Digital - Sid Meier's Civilization, Starcraft, X-Com, Minecraft, Artemis.

---

Shows: Star Trek (TNG/DS9/VOY), Castle, Sherlock, Scrubs, Frasier, Clone High, Big Bang Theory.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- An intellectual challenge: I need a some sort of game to play or puzzle to figure out or I get antsy.

- A physical outlet: Fencing has served this for me nicely. I generally prefer some sort of sport or game (combat sports in particular) over directly working out.

- A place to which I can retreat: I love people, but I'm ultimately an introvert. Large groups exhaust me and I often need a quiet place to relax for a moment. I require this less when I am in small groups, and I rarely feel the need to be alone if in the company of someone from my innermost circle.

- A catchy song to sing/play: Fortunately these are easy to come by. I'd love to hear your suggestions though!

Hmm, I'll list two more as they come to me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I have a general fascination with old world words and ideas. Since I started studying how people conducted themselves in the 16th century, I find myself thinking about the concepts of chivalry and honor and if/how they apply to my modern life.

I think these ideas feel antiquated and strange to the modern tongue, but to me they're ideals which deserve to be preserved. If nothing else, it never hurts to spend time reconsidering how I govern myself and treat others.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
... drinking cider and playing games with my friends.
... at a fencing tournament or watching an improv show.
... cooking dinner, watching Netflix, and unwinding.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
... you want to meet up for coffee and a board game.
... you desperately want to share your favorite Elim Garak quote.
... you'd like to be escorted to a banquet or masked ball.
... you're on the fence about messaging me, but something stopped you - I'd like to know what it was.
