My self-summary
I'm a geeky, goofy, poly guy who probably thinks too much. I enjoy taking ideas apart and putting them back together again; it works for games, music, politics, and cooking.

My favorite person in the world is my cat Oedipus; he and I have seen some things. I'm a Sounders season ticket holder, not too shabby at pub trivia, and am working on perfecting my cappuccino and my manhattan.

I try to keep pretty active with interests old and new. My gaming library grows faster than I can play it, recently joined a soccer league with coworkers, and when I can find the time, I try to keep up with bands coming through town and cool museum exhibits.

I am laid-back, logical, and laugh easily.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a game designer; its a great job and I'd be doing it for fun even if I weren't paid for it. I'm currently working for a great medium-sized mobile games developer downtown. The hours can be long, but the team feels like a group of passionate friends and not very much like a job at all. I call that a win.

Also, if you know what 'NSPP' refers to, you will find a reference to it here.
I’m really good at
Making up answers to questions that sound legit, then finding out the real answers to see how close my [sometimes educated] guesses were. It's like playing Balderdash with myself, and learning is fun.

Sharing suggestions for music, movies, or games. Watching sports, going to live music, and slowly digesting art museums. Cooking, when I get motivated to put some effort in.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've had blue hair since college; there's something to the 'persistent self image' theory put forth in the Matrix. I'll probably keep doing it like this until gene therapy comes along to do it permanently. It's also proof of the moral that some whimsical decisions can turn out to be very rewarding.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite authors include Gibson, Stephenson, Lehmen, Gaiman, Pratchett, and Vinge.

Favorite movies include Cloud Atlas, Rushmore, Lost in Translation, Spirited Away, Way of the Gun, and Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang.

I'm always devouring music, but I don't often listen to the radio. I love to trade music with people, and I always hope I can turn a friend on to a great artist they didn't know about before. My all-time favorites include Built to Spill, Belle & Sebastian, Modest Mouse, Sleater-Kinney, Yo La Tengo, the Album Leaf, Field Music, Wilco, the Smiths, the Sea and Cake, Broken Social Scene, and Stars.

I'm looking for a concert buddy! I hate going alone, but I'd love to have a friend to go out to shows with. I also need to see more live theater and stand-up comedy.
The six things I could never do without
-My music collection
-Oedipus [my cat]
-My electrogadgets, especially those that let me play games or read Reddit
-the NFL, MLS, or the Olympics [whichever's in season]
-Doppio Macchiatos and/or Belgian beer
-That feeling you get in your chest when you realize that the person you have come to really like has similar feelings for you
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-Work: a little sad, but we all do it. Also, many of my best ideas have come when I'm away from the office.
-Politics: why do we condone so much greed, and how are people convinced that those who act against their best interests are doing so for their own good?
-Which games to play next, who to play them with, and how to find time to do more fun things in a single day.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing games with friends, slowly drinking small amounts of good coffee, checking out some live music, or looking forward to the next Sounders match.
You should message me if
You want to catch a concert, or see the game from your favorite local sports bar. Maybe you need recommendations on where to get a good cup in any part of town?

I've been poly for more than a while now, and it works for me. I'm looking for new things, new people, and no emotional gymnastics. I'm honest, open with my thoughts, and respectful above all else, and I hope you are too.
