My self-summary

I make video games for a living. I enjoy good wine, but I appreciate a delicious beer even more.

I work a lot, but only because I just have so much fun doing what I do. I try balance things out though.

I read a wide variety of things, from meditations on evolution to comic books. I'm a geek, though not in the traditional sense. Your chickens are safe with me.

I am perspicacious, iconoclastic, and the motherflippin'
What I’m doing with my life
Working on game number... something or other.

I'm also writing a comic book maxi-series.
I’m really good at
Crafting cinematics. Cooking. Framing a shot. Finding humor in anything. Learning. Writing.
The first things people usually notice about me
Lately, a lot of people tell me I look very young (not zygote-young, but still). I get carded when buying alcohol, which just kinda creeps me out. I was hoping that by the time I reached this age, I'd look like the stereotypical professor, sporting a tweed jacket and a pipe.

The six things I could never do without
Books, my iPod, hefe-weizen, my guitar, and a toilet.

Lately, I got a chance to test to see if I could live without my iPod. I manged to soak it with nasal spray for about 7 hours. Turns out, I can't live without one. I need my podcasts.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Someday, if I ever have kids, they'll roll their eyes when I pop in my CD of Metallica's '...and Justice for All.' Then I truly will feel old.
On a typical Friday night I am
Reorganizing my shoelaces alphabetically. Or relaxing at home, watching a movie. Or hanging out with folk. Or staring at a blank TV screen, hoping that I can bring Manimal back on through sheer force of will.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I still get choked up when I read The Giving Tree. And if being moved by a book that's about a person manipulating someone (or something) who is so naively good-hearted that he (she or it) is literally killed by it, well... so be it.
You should message me if
You're interested and interesting, of course.

You love yourself some MST3K.

You can give me an interesting answer to the question, "Who's your favorite Doctor?" Or you at least know what I mean when I ask that question and you don't mind learning more.

Or if you think I'm cool, and you think you're cool, and you think we'd be cool together. And now I'll vague that up some more.
