My self-summary
I'm a native Washingtonian, and I'm never moving away.

I like to stay active by hiking, running, rock climbing, backpacking, and other activities where I get to be outdoors, climb stuff, or wear special shoes.

I like to stay inactive by being a big video game and role-playing geek. So I can frequently be found rolling dice with friends, wandering Skyrim, or making a little Batman beat people up inside my TV.

Personality-wise, I'm quiet, calm, blunt, empathetic, and easy-going.

And here's a few more random facts, 'cause why not:
- I'm partially colorblind
- I can bake like a sonofabitch. Who wants pie?
- I'm a pretty good shot with a recurve bow.
- I have a katana scar on my left arm. The story is not even remotely epic.
- I recently built a table, and it's surprisingly awesome.
What I’m doing with my life
I work as a structural engineer, so most of my week is spent figuring out how to keep buildings from falling down and crushing people. It's pretty awesome.

When I'm not working, I play games, boulder, hang out with friends, do outdoorsy stuff, bake, read, and work on random craft projects.
I’m really good at
Street Fighter
...Yeah, I'm a nerd.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like a lot of things, but I figure I better keep this brief so that there's a chance people may actually read it.

Just about anything by Brandon Sanderson or Neal Stephenson

The Shawshank Redemption, Willow, The Incredibles, As Good as it Gets

Avatar: The Last Airbender, Firefly, Last Week Tonight With John Oliver

Video Games (Yeah, I snuck this in here. Don't tell anyone.):
Monkey Island, Batman: Arkham City, Braid, Street Fighter, Star Control II, Dragon Age: Origins

Florence + The Machine, Johnny Cash, Of Monsters and Men. I also derive sick pleasure from being the only person who really likes Boyd's Journey from the Ravenous soundtrack.

Pumpkin Pie, Sausage, Cream Cheese Danishes, IPA, Quiche
The six things I could never do without
Good Friends
Stories (Books, Movies, etc.)
Being Active
Laying Around
Frozen Food (There's too much to do to spend all my time cooking)

Honorable mention: Beer
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What life would be like if I lived in another time or place, and whether I'd be able to survive there. Various games and systems, and how to break them in interesting ways. Engineering problems. Why I'm thinking and feeling what I am.
On a typical Friday night I am
I get together with a regular gaming group on Fridays, so I'm pretty much always in Federal Way hanging out and playing Savage Worlds.

Other days of the week I might be found at pub trivia, hanging out with friends, climbing at the gym, camping in the woods, lounging around at home with a book, show, or video game, or working on some random project.
You should message me if
You want to get together and chat a bit to see how we get along. It's that simple, really. So if you're interested, feel free to just throw the normal gender dynamic out the window and say so.
