I’m a relentless optimist - I'm the one friends call when they need to vent, be cheered up or just need a voice of reason to help sort out a problem.
I love science and learning and anything to do with space. Yes, I was glued to the TV when the Curiosity rover landed on Mars. At museums and zoos, I stop and read all the little informational plaques. I've been reading a lot about the technological singularity lately and thoroughly enjoying the new Cosmos so I'm becoming a fan of Ray Kurzweil and Neil DeGrasse Tyson both. I like to hike and mess about outdoors, but don't do enough of it. My love of computers and art pull me in a tug of war which is why I do what I do (computer graphics). I like to cook on occasion (and recently have been experimenting with recipes from the Game of Thrones cookbook). I love movies and I've got far too much useless movie trivia in my head. My friends tell me I have the patience of a glacier and a work ethic they envy. I may work hard, but will also drop everything to go hang out with a friend.
I don't drink - nothing against it, I just have never liked the taste. Most of my friends drink though and they've often benefited from me being their "automatic designated driver".
I can quote most of the great geek movies out there. I love Douglas Adams' books, am a huge Firefly fan, can recognize Froud's artwork at a glance and as far as I'm concerned George R. R. Martin is a god. I'm a writer and story teller at heart. I love good riddles, obscure words, interesting trivia and a well-crafted sentence. Beyond writing, I adore film, animation and visual effects... so much so that I do computer graphics professionally.
I eat right, exercise regularly and take care of myself and am looking for someone who does the same. Life is good... I'm just looking for someone to share it with.
