By day, I am a computer programmer, working on some top-secret
stuff for a Bay Area start-up. By night, I am a cartoon-watching,
comic reading, D&D playing, video game playing (and making),
music composing geek. I'm looking for someone who shares my

Beyond that, I like to think that I am a decent, courteous person.
I have two cats, a lot of stuff, and live in Summerlin in a house

happy with a guitar, recorder, or something else in a pinch.
* Some way to record my thoughts and ideas, such as a computer or
