My self-summary
I work at night and on the weekends in a kitchen. This makes for weird sleep schedules, odd days and hours when it is acceptable to drink, and makes me part of a strange and off-kilter culture that I love.

I enjoy looking at local art when I can, but that's not something you can really avoid around here.
I thoroughly enjoy the strange culture of service workers, food carts, street festivals, Lovecraft themed burlesque, weird local bands that happen to be your neighbors, after hours speakeasys etc.

I am nerdy. To me that means sci-fi, computer building, book/comic reading. Finding time for vidya games in adult life.

I seek out out novel individuals and experiences.
Conversely, I also stay in and become antisocial, both these states seem to come in bursts.

Adventurer, enthusiast, moral hedonist.

Talk to me about scotch whiskey or your favorite RPG.
