Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
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. I work in IT and while I used to do
freelance writing full time as well I dropped most of that to focus
on my own novels (which had been infinitely more satisfying on a
personal and financial level.)
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
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

Okay, I'm actually going to try to fill some of this out.
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
Yep, this is the only category where I actually have a consistent
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.
Golden Retrievers (Well, most dogs, but them in particular)
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.
I'm actually known for being a lot more reserved in real life than
I might appear when I start writing.
