My self-summary
I'm a super nerd. I like comic books, board games, role-playing games, and other such dorky things. I grew up watching Star Trek (specifically, The Next Generation), and will usually stop to watch for a few minutes if I'm flipping around. I have an uncynical love for this stuff, and hope you do, too.

Outside of geeky stuff, I go bonkers for karaoke, am always on the lookout for new places to eat, am always up for a Master Pancake Theater show, and I'm willing to step out of my comfort zone to try something fun.

As to relationships, I've come to realize that I don't think I'm interested in long-term relationships. I'm not looking to settle down, and I like the idea of meeting someone, getting to know them, enjoying each other for a while, then moving on before it gets stale. Also, I don't believe that monogamy is healthy. I'm more interested in open or poly relationships, as I think it's better for everyone involved.
What I’m doing with my life
I run a weekly board gaming group that meets on Tuesdays, and it's really fun. I've met a lot of cool people and played games that are super awesome and innovative. If you think board games are all about Monopoly and Candy Land, then I've got some stuff to show you!

Every Thursday, I also run a Dungeons and Dragons game. Running games is massively fun. I didn't think that it would be better than playing, but it is. I love it.

I work with, and sometimes compete in, competitive karaoke. It's based around skits and performances, and you don't have to be a good singer so long as you're enthusiastic. Well worth your valuable time to check it out.

I also organized a decent-sized annual board game convention here in Austin called Board Game Bash. It gets a lot of folks to come out, and I'm pretty proud of the way it brings people together.

Lastly, LEGO bricks are super cool. I wish I were better at building with them.
I’m really good at
faking it until I make it!
The first things people usually notice about me
If I'm being honest, probably my shaved head. But maybe my animated style of talking. Take your pick!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I try to keep these lists short, so while I like more than books, movies, music, etc, than I've listed, I want easy to read lists.

Books: The Fountainhead, The Martian Chronicles, Lord of the Rings, World War Z

Comics: Walking Dead, Y: The Last Man (and anything else by Brian K. Vaughan), Batman

Movies: Contact, Star Wars, Nightmare Before Christmas, Unbreakable, Shawshank Redemption, unapologetic action/horror

Current TV: Silicon Valley, Louie, Orange is the New Black, Bob's Burgers, Archer, Game of Thrones

No longer on the air TV: Babylon 5, Firefly, Star Trek: TNG

Music: Barenaked Ladies, Guster, Kathleen Edwards, Beautiful South, Nickel Creek

The six things I could never do without
1) A decent computer with a good Internet connection
2) Easily prepared meals
3) My car (or other means of easy transportation)
4) A steady supply of new comics
5) A steady supply of new books
6) At least one gaming group (board or role playing)

I was tempted to add TV and cable to the list, since that's just about my favorite medium, but I really could live without it if I HAD to.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I jump around a lot, to be honest. I'm probably thinking about how to save the world, Wednesday comics, interpreting the rules to a new board game, ideas for improving a board game convention, or trying to remember what upcoming things I've forgotten.
On a typical Friday night I am
Actually, Friday nights are usually one of my more boring nights. For a former awkward introverted teenager, I've got a pretty good social life now. But my socializing is typically during the week. I would like to see more movies, though, and Friday is a good time for that.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've worked to hide it, but I'm pretty introverted by nature. Sometimes I over-compensate to make up for it, but given my natural instincts, I'd hide away at home. (Which isn't to say that I don't enjoy interacting with others; I do. It's just that my instinct is to be reclusive.)
You should message me if're confident about yourself, and are unafraid to speak your mind.'re GGG, and looking for a guy that's the same. can not only handle, but enjoy and perhaps share in dorky eccentricities. prefer to be wanted than needed. know any great jokes. I always enjoy a good jokes, especially if it involves clever wordplay or puns.
