I'm new to Seattle. It's a fun city, but it's hard missing friends and family.
I'm nice. Really, I am -- so much so that sometimes I wish I wasn't because it seems like jerks have all the luck. I've tried being a jerk and it just felt wrong so I gave it shelved it alongside my GI Joes and chocked it up to being a child.
I adore animals. My parents work at a dog rescue, so I regularly help out with adoptions, and am apprenticing to be a dog trainer. I could easily spend hours watching cat videos and have no idea how I'm going to handle the death of my cat Pipi. For now I'm just operating on the premise that's she an immortal. That, or we're going to jump off a building together at some point in a suicide pact before an unstoppable zombie onslaught.
So I've said I'm nice, but that doesn't mean I'm a pushover. Ialso know how to dish out some sass and take it in return with people I like. I actually do a popular comedy podcast that I'll tell you about if we meet. If you can't take the occasional offensive joke in jest, we probably will have a hard time getting along with one another. In smart comedy nothing is sacred.
A few other things I'm into are video games, vegans and vegetarians, music, going to shows, being at home and watching a movie, real conversations about meaningful things, coffee, and a good cup of interesting tea. I especially like gaming and nerd culture since that's what my current career is focused in. No, no, no, I'm not some giant manbaby like in Grandma's Boy, but I do design games for a living (and get paid pretty decently too). I used to write about them and still do successful podcasts about them. I'm actually as embarrassed as I am proud of the tens of thousands of people who follow me on twitter.
So yeah I am a nerd. And proud of it. I am also a musician. Want to hear some of my singing and playing guitar? Check out my youtube page.
I like history and religion (both of which I have a bachelors in). I am not religious, but i just think that religion--because it is so much a part of so many people's lives--is really awesome to study and learn about. Having some knowledge about this, or even just enough interest in it or me to tolerate my blabbing about it, is rad.
