My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Okay...
Well, in a lot of ways I have an overabundance of enthusiasm coupled with a deficiency of self-awareness. Made worse by the fact that I'm a technophile. So... Massive nerd.

Yes, I am that rare breed of geek that not only has a Starfleet uniform hanging in the back of his closet, but who can also wear it without shame.* That said I also do my best to get out in the world whenever possible - I enjoy travel, camping, hiking, boating, and biking when I'm not hiding from the sun as my ilk are want to do. My interests are pretty broad - and I'll be happy to talk your ear off about them if you're curious. Plus I kind of compulsively answer the match questions on here, so odds are pretty good that most questions you have actually are answered in there.

*I have been advised after a viewing of the documentary "Trekies" that I should specify that while I can, I very rarely do.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
These days: predominantly work. After college I supported myself as a freelance writer for a while before getting a more conventional day job to support me while I focused more on novels. Currently have two out with a third on the way, and am slowly working on building that into something that can support me full time.

Also, being the best damn ear scratcher I can. According to my dog at any rate.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing, puzzles, figuring out how things work, making them work differently, building new things after breaking the things that apparently didn't work out all that well after being made to work differently.

Oh, and self-deprecating humor.

In all seriousness, I'm a tinkerer by nature - and this extends to pretty much anything you could care to mention. I've built/rebuilt boats, furniture, models, houses, stages, costumes, props, bikes, cars, and sets. I'm also very good at fixing computers.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'd like to say my acerbic wit, my rugged good looks, or my eyes... but if I'm being honest it's probably my dress sense.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Okay, I'm actually going to try to fill some of this out.
Books:
Just about anything by Mark Twain and Terry Pratchett. I've also become a huge fan of David Weber over the past few years, particularly his Honorverse and Safehold series. H.G. Wells and Jules Verne (as silly as I feel listing them because... well, duh.) I just finished up the Wheel of Time series which was pretty fun... Larry Niven (though it may be heresy to admit that I think he's slightly better when he's collaborating with someone)... Just stared on HP Lovecraft, and I think that's enough for now.

Movies and TV:
Star Trek (all of them, with a particular fondness for the original series movies), Doctor Who, Star Wars (sometimes), Game of Thrones, those are the ones you probably already assumed from the earlier segments of the profile.
Also a big fan of Castle, Community, Parks and Rec, the old Batman animated series (Paul Dini/Bruce Timm... actually, strike that, fan of pretty much all the stuff those guys did in the DC universe), the Tim Burton and Christopher Nolan Batman films, pretty much all the Joss Whedon shows, Lord of the Rings, Archer, Carnivale, Rome, Finding Forrester, Bones, Sherlock Holmes, Avatar: The Last Airbender, House.

Game:
Planescape: Torment.
Yep, this is the only category where I actually have a consistent favorite.

There is more, but the full list is far too big to fit here. Feel free to ask me though!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Computer
Google
Bookstore
Golden Retrievers (Well, most dogs, but them in particular)
My Kindle
Sunblock (I may not look it, but I burn very easily)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Plot points, people I've met, whatever book/movie/story I just finished, how I would rewrite that book/movie/story, why it is that this so often ends up annoying people.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I have yet to discover what a "Typical" Friday night is. At the moment, odds are good I'm either hanging out with friends or watching a movie. As for next friday, who can say?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've got a starfleet... oh, wait, I put that in the first section. Uh...

I'm actually known for being a lot more reserved in real life than I might appear when I start writing.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're curious.

You've got a funny story you'd really like to share (or, for that matter, you'd just like to hear one)

You'd really like to go sailing in the near future. Or learn how to.

I make you laugh. Hey, it's bound to happen eventually, right?
