My personality can be summarized pretty well by the INTJ
Myers-Briggs type, which has been described as "perplexingly
mysterious." So here goes demystifying.
I'm a geek. I've worked for an awesome online news startup,
traveled to places where English literally isn't on the menu, and
eventually joined a foreign international company from the most
beautiful country in the world (that would be Iceland).
Although I've emigrated to Iceland, I'm originally from the US
(I've lived in WA, CA, MO, and GA).
I love wordplay, even if it's sometimes cheesy.
I work on computer games both professionally and as a hobby. I see
them as a form of art, like painting or film.
What I’m doing with my life
Presently, tech support for an Icelandic video game company in
Reykjavik. I'm loving Iceland and the company.
When I'm not on the job, I'm usually programming something or
other. My goal right now is to transition from tech support to a
full-time programming gig.
Also, traveling the world. So far the UK, New South Wales, Ireland,
Reykjavik, Shanghai, and Antalya. I'd like to add Warsaw to that
list at some point.
I’m really good at
Taking challenging technical concepts and breaking them down into
terms that the layman can more easily understand.
Tricking the locals into thinking I'm Icelandic until I have to say
Also, reaching that mug on the top shelf.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall, thin, quiet, nerdy... all that surface-layer stuff.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Show: The Americans / Prison Break / 24
Music: I'm quite open. Bollywood's interesting, smooth jazz is
cheesy but relaxing, Europunk (Is that even a music genre? It is
now) is hip.
The six things I could never do without
1. A computer
Those might not be in order.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future. Specifically, my future. Things I'll be sure to teach
my kids. Career mobility. What I should learn about next. That sort
of thing. And also scientific and technological developments. And
let's be honest, video game industry history and news.
On a typical Friday night I am
It varies, since my schedule is flexible. Some nights I may be
working, on the nights I'm not working I'm probably at home.
I don't go out partying much. I've tried it a couple times, but
it's not my idea of fun (although Reykjavik offers a surprisingly
international scene). I'd rather be learning or making something.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Get to know me and find out.
You should message me if
You're a Christian, open to long-distance dating (or live in
Reykjavik!), enjoy international travel, and like to talk nerdy.
