Grab a Computer Science graduate from your pantry. Now remove the pocket protector, glasses and unkempt hair.
Add in a giant love of board games! Board games, board games! :D
Add a pinch of personality that enjoys an intimate conversation (as opposed to having voices drowned out within a mob).
Subtract rural living (I was disillusioned by a childhood experience where I was the only child of my age within a radius of 10 miles), which leaves a big-city person.
Spice things up with the colour purple (I like this colour).
Excuse my British spelling, that's how I write, right?
Stir this concoction well.
And you get me.
(What's a Platform Engineer, you ask?
Imagine I'm a blacksmith. I take the red-hot product straight from the forge with rough faces and sharp corners and turn it into a smoothly running system.
I'm the one responsible for "Main Screen Turn On".)
I used to read a lot of fiction, but these days I find myself gravitating towards non-fiction. However, some authors, in no particular order include: Khalil Gibran, Issac Asimov, J R R Tolkien.
I listen to all genres of music, but last.fm informs me that my most listened to artists are Kate Bush and Live - though I seem to listen to more electronica of late.
I love food, of all types and cuisines. I do prefer my food to have a little zing to it, but I dislike heat for the sake of making the food hotter; it should add some flavour to the food.
I prefer salty to sweet unless it's chocolate. And in the event of chocolate, the darker the better!
I LOVE board games. While I prefer cooperative games over competitive ones, I play them all! Examples of board games include: 7 Wonders, Race for the Galaxy, Pandemic, Settlers of Catan.
I enjoy playing computer games, too. I play League of Legends (currently platinum in solo queue); and Civilization V. I also enjoy point and click adventure games. I also own a PSP Vita for on the go gaming.
But yeah, I do like things like fountain pens...

- You want to just hang out and have fun: I'm fun to talk to!
