My self-summary
My name is Brad.

I absolutely love to play guitar. I play almost entirely by ear. I don't look up tabs or chords if I can avoid it. Though with some artists, it's just difficult to discern parts by ear. Playing guitar can be a simple way to enjoy passing the time, or can be a very therapeutic activity for when I've had a rough day. I mostly play rock and metal, but I enjoy relaxing with a little Pink Floyd or other classic rock now and then. (One of my guitars is a Stratocaster modeled after David Gilmour's)

I also play drums and reeeeally wish I could play the piano.

I'm a bit of a nerd, seeing as how I write software for a living. And being such a nerd, I enjoy video games more than the average person. My big ones are Final Fantasy. Plus, I love music from most video games. That style of music is designed to be engaging, but not distracting, which makes it great for work. I have a few of the Final Fantasy soundtracks and they're all absolutely beautiful.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a graduate of the Computer Science program at KU and I'm now a software (web) developer for a department in the School of Education at KU.
I’m really good at
Being sarcastic and thinking logically to a point that it hurts sometimes.
The first things people usually notice about me
Honestly, I don't really know. The only really defining things about me that are readily apparent are my sarcasm and wit.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music:
- Various movie soundtracks (John Williams is the man)
- Nobuo Uematsu (video game composer)
- The Black Mages (video game music remade into metal)
- August Burns Red
- Oh, Sleeper
- Lots and lots of other rock/metal

I'm a music lover of most forms. However, I much prefer those played on actual instruments, so electronic music and hip-hop are not in my preferences 99 times out of 100. My day-to-day music taste is usually hard rock and metal. I like going to the occasional concert, and I'm no stranger to Rockfest in KC.

TV:
- The Office (U.S.)
- House of Cards
- Firefly
- Sherlock
- Castle
- House
- How I Met Your Mother
- Parks and Rec
- Once Upon a Time (yeah, I like fantasy)
- Futurama
- American Dad
- Family Guy
- Cartoons before they sucked...I enjoy the old Spongebob episodes, don't judge

Books:
- How to Furrow Your Brow
- How to Look Chastened
- Anticipating Doorbells
- Reading with One Hand
(Anyone catch these references?)

But really, I don't read much (as in, maybe one book every few years), but the Dexter series was good. I read those a few years ago.

Food:
I like most food, be it Italian, Mexican, BBQ, you name it. I also recently found a po' boy place in town just south of 8th and Vermont called Terrebonne. It's terrific. Go there and thank me later.
The six things I could never do without
- Computers and/or the Internet (I work on 'em...would be hard to make a living)
- Guitars
- Music
- Sarcasm
- Games
- Friends and family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Games
Guitar parts to songs
What to watch next on Netflix
On a typical Friday night I am
Either playing games with friends or out having a good time. Kinda varies. Lately, Netflix and I have become good friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Huh...I don't really know. I'll figure out something good to put here eventually.
You should message me if
- You like technology
- You like games (video or tabletop)
- You like the same sort of music as I do
- You know the difference between "your" and "you're"...also that there is no "a" in "definitely".

Or if I just seem so freaking awesome that you feel like it, go for it.
