My self-summary
People say that I have an old soul. Usually, they say this after I show them the phylactery I keep on a shelf.

I'm a nerd. I play video games and I could talk about science fiction for hours.
I'm easy going, make silly jokes, and am honest and loyal to a fault.

I will show you fun in a handful of dust.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a writer (science fiction and horror), and I also have a regular boring desk job that pays my bills.

I moved to Chicago a little over a year ago, and it is awesome.
I’m really good at
Super Dodge Ball.
Negotiating doorways for broads.
Sarcastically making fun of antiquated societal protocols.
Cooking pizza.
Hokuto Shinken.
Comma splices.
Modesty.
The first things people usually notice about me
People don't notice me.
Until it's too late.
Or the red beard. Built in pirate name!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - Too many to list. Heinlein, King, and Gibson are my all time favorites.
Shows - Walking Dead, Doctor Who (mostly the old stuff), Firefly, etc etc etc.
Movies - Anything science fiction, any horror movie that isn't a slasher/gorefest/exploitation film, unless I'm watching it MST3K style. And if the movie has some kind of giant monster that eats a city? Bonus.
Music - Anything but new country. Or 'noize'.

Food - Yes. Recommend a restaurant to me.
And I cook. Well. Play your cards right, and I might just treat you.
The six things I could never do without
Books.
Food.
Water.
Shelter.

That's all I really need. I'm a simple person.
Maybe a volleyball for companionship.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I'm going to write my next book(s).
How instead of writing my books, I just write silly haiku on facebook.
My elaborate plan for revenge on the Batman for ruining my life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hosting a movie night for friends, out on the town, or just staying in and lounging.
Depends on my mood.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I own a Cards Against Humanity white card with my name on it.
I try to act like this doesn't make me better than people, but let's be honest, it does.
You should message me if
...you are compulsively attracted to brooding, sarcastic writers.
...you enjoy spending time with scoundrels.
...have a sense of humor.

Send me a message. You lose nothing.
