My self-summary
Akbar56 is just an old nick name of mine. It's followed me around the web for almost 20 years now.

I am married to the wonderful nartweag but we are monagmish-poly open couple. We are a child free (i'm fixed) couple raising two Manx cats in Burien.

I am your typical geek. I'm big into computers, play video/board/card games, love sci-fi, love anime (but am not an otaku) and read comic books. Not big into sports, but can enjoy a good game.

As an artist I create in the mediums of wood, film, lego and photography.

I'm a fairly open book (some chapters you can't read before others) so I am open to any question.
What I’m doing with my life
For a living I make video games for cell phones. Primarily I am the hardware guy. But that's just how I pay the bills.

Artistically I love to edit films. It's my true passion and love. Recently I have been making 'supercuts' and hosting them online.

I also do amateur wood working in my home wood shop. Mostly small stuff and finish work, but I'm fairly well versed in most construction stuff.

All in all I strive to live a happy life with my wonderful wife and our two cats.
I’m really good at
-Cooking you an amazing meal.
-Taking a piece of wood and making something cool.
-Endless supply of trivia in the forms of movie, television and pop culture.
-Making you laugh.
The first things people usually notice about me
My blue eyes. My smirk of a smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I mostly read sci-fi, so your Heinlein, your Bradbury, your Clark would go here. I do love the Discworld series, Terry Pratchett is a gift to this world. Good Omens is the best fun you will ever have with armageddon.

Comics: I have an extensive knowledge of the Batman world from the reboot in 1986 until last year. Currently in love with Atomic Robo as it is the most fun you will ever have in 22 pages.

Movies: I am a movie guy. I live breathe and love movies. I won't even begin to list all of my favorite movies*.
Genres I tend to lean towards: Sci-Fi (both smart and leave your brain at the door,) Time Travel, action, comedy,western, romance thriller, mystery, historical. I tend to not enjoy horror and zombies especially do nothing for me. Foreign films are always an interest to me.
My wife and I host a mostly bi-weekly movie night at our place to share our love of cinema with our friends. I even blog about movies here: http://anothermoviegeek.blogspot.com/

*If I had to choose, my favorite film of all time would be Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Shows: Again, I watch a lot of sci-fi. Babylon 5, Farscape, Stargate, Firefly, Doctor Who, Torchwood , Battlestar Galactica are some of my favorites. I tend to watch a fair amount of animated stuff as well. Avatar The Last Airbender (and the new Legend of Korra) are two of my favorites and I have yet to see an anime that I didn't enjoy. I also enjoy a good police procedural Longmire and Castle for instance. I tend to stay away from most 'reality tv' but do enjoy Top Chef and Project Runway.

Music: Since I am such a movie guy, my normal regular listening music is musical scores from films. I consider it the "classical" music of our time. Outside of that my Mama raised me to appreciate good classic rock and I do enjoy a wide range of electronica. I am a bit obsessed lately with Tim Minchin.

Food: Yes please! I love food. I love to cook. Not a fan of super spicy stuff but love awesome flavors.
The six things I could never do without
Comic Books.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Who invented the metal grommet and the impact they had on the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a blast with my wife or just hanging out with friends. Fun activities will get me out of the house, but I do just enjoy a good hang out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I still play with Lego Bricks and have them sorted out by piece type and color.
