Growing up I was a nerdy kid, but had plenty of good friends and didn't really get picked on. I grew up on Zelda, Squaresoft (erauqs si dlrow eht), and Super Mario, of course. I always admired the medieval era, fascinated by castles and dragons and the like. My favorites were fantasy books growing up.
I was always an honor roll kid. I was lucky to have parents who were never over-bearing and managed to stay hands-off when it came to my schooling. I think that is why I excelled in school. Also, neither of them were quite equipped to help me with my school work after the age of 12. Nevertheless, they were always very proud of my achievements. I'm the first person in my family to achieve a doctorate.
I am passionate about my work, which involves problem solving and serving as a consultant. In general, I care a lot about helping others. I can be a little bit of a perfectionist, but only for certain things (like my work, or creating certain presentations). I've been told that I give awesome presentations, but strangely I hate public speaking. I've been described as hard-working, very intelligent, reliable, and quirky. Being witty comes naturally to me. So does being eccentric. When I get angry or excited I'll yell nonsensical things in Japanese or German. My type of anger is the one mired in humor and satire, never violence. I have never once struck anyone and will never do so.
I'm a self-described geek. I love computers and build my own with custom components as a hobby. I'm an Intel, nVidia, and Logitech enthusiast. I am a PC.
I'm starting "grade 25", as I like to call it. I believe in a principle of life-long learning. I'm eager to teach others my craft and look forward to teaching in the future.
Honesty and a strong work-ethic are very important to me. I'm probably too honest for my own good. I'd rather fess up something and get in trouble than compromise my own integrity. I also speak freely at all times and say what's on my mind. Perhaps at times it's a little too frank but at least you know what you're dealing with. I have little to no filter in my personal communication.
I'm very goal-driven. My ultimate goals in life are to become a valued member of my community, contribute to humanity, and raise a beautiful family.
If this kind of stuff seems appealing to you, please don't hesitate to message me. I'll probably be too shy to message you.
