My self-summary
Hi there, I'm Alex! If you like laughing and being entertained, I can definitely oblige ;) A conversation with me can go straight from a hilariously outlandish idea to a reflection on how the world works, which itself can be pretty funny, so feel free to jump in anywhere! I have a background dream of being a comedian.

You could also join me for a bike ride, PC gaming, watching documentaries, watching stand-up comedy, discussing the world (those last two actually have a lot of overlap), or petting all the dogs we meet. Bonus points if you have a picture of yourself with a dog, although I like a lot of animals in general. Sometimes I do find a cat that I like (even though I'm slightly allergic).

Also, I'm a big fat an engineer in career and at heart, so I can be pretty analytical and direct at times: not rude, but not overly sugar-coated. And if something is broken, I'll fix it for you (even if it's not broken, 'cause that's how I roll).
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a product developer/mechanical engineer with an awesome job right out of college. Since I moved to Rockford, I've been doing a lot of exploring the area, inventing, disc golf, crazy hangouts, and singing at karaoke nights. Be my duet partner?

Eventually, I’d like to create new products on my own. You'll know when that happens: there will be a small, Iron Man-looking object flying around town. Feel free to wave!
I’m really good at
Fixing things, singing (I will absolutely sing Disney songs with you), making people laugh, making Simpsons references, getting along with animals, helping people with their problems, figuring out how things work, and massages ;)
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm quick with a joke and I'm a nerd for science and technology.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Comedians: George Carlin, Chris Rock, Bill Burr, Mitch Hedberg. Did I miss any of your favorites?

Music: Pop/punk/alternative: Simple Plan, Avril Lavigne, Lindsey Stirling, Weird Al, Gaelic Storm, Green Day. I like when I can actually understand song lyrics, and a lot of singers don't seem to care, so I made this:

TV: The Simpsons, Star Trek, Futurama, Walking Dead, Mythbusters, Malcolm in the Middle, RoosterTeeth/Achievement Hunter.

Video games: Portal, Half Life, Team Fortress 2, Super Smash Bros, Borderlands 2, The Forest, Minecraft, Populous The Beginning, and Trials. But all video games are better when you have a player 2 ;)

Books: Eragon, Your Inner Fish, The Road, Harry Potter, White Fang, The Sea Wolf, The Selfish Gene, The Martian.
The six things I could never do without
> Learning new things
> Interesting ideas to chew on instead of falling asleep
> Interesting friends
> Tools and projects
> Jokes
> Lists (that's no joke)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why people act the way they do, things I could invent, and nice things I'd like to do for a date. My brain doesn't sleep, and sometimes neither do I.
On a typical Friday night I am
Singing at a karaoke bar, gaming, building things, but I also like cozy nights in... maybe with a special someone ;)
