My self-summary
I'm a self-styled nerd, father of two (... he who puts the toys together gets to play with them first!). There's a good chance if it's something you'd consider "geeky" that I've done it or have given it serious thought. I love to read (science fiction), write (for my own amusement) and occasionally dabble in miniature painting.

I really don't know what else to say; I've never been fantastic at self description.
What I’m doing with my life
... at present I'm a desktop administrator for an international moving company and I'm attending college for a Bachelor's of Science in Information Technology.

Essentially that means I'm in charge of the care and feeding of all things electronic at my workplace and I'm working on getting more education in the same.

... and to summarize the summary I'm a nerd, it's my job and I love it.

Furthermore to summarize the summary of the summary... I'll think of something witty later.
I’m really good at
... fixing things and finding solutions to otherwise irritating problems. It might not be the solution you're looking for or the most common fix but I'll make it work. I'll admit that sometimes I have a tendency to get a little target-fixated when presented with a particularly pressing problem but I can admit when I'm licked (which means I'll just come back to it later).

I also like to think I'm good at making people laugh and generally being the go-to person when someone needs to talk.
The first things people usually notice about me
... would have to be the fact that I always like to be doing something. I have a dozen (probably less, but hey) little projects that I tinker with from time to time.

If I had to pick a second attribute I'd say that it's my sense of humor; it just doesn't quit. I don't know if that's a good thing or not, but I've gotten some good laughs because of it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Science fiction of the dystopian/cyberpunk variety as well as the classics (Heinlein, Bova, etc). I'm a big fan of the space opera's by Peter F Hamilton and I've got a late start but I'm slowly working through Harry Potter.

When it comes to movies it's along the same lines but I've also seen and enjoy almost every Pixar and Dreamworks movie ever made. Thanks to my boys I can quote them all from memory too.
The six things I could never do without
1. My boys (yes, there are two, but they count as one choice)
2. My phone (Warning: Low-key Android fan-boy)
3. A good book
4. A spell-checker; if it weren't for those squiggly red lines I'd look like a moron.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
... whatever comes to mind, really.
On a typical Friday night I am
... doing one of three things: sitting at home doing homework, sitting at home playing video games or going out somewhere and doing something. Just depends on my mood.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
... isn't something I'm going to admit on a public forum. You'll just have to find out by asking.
You should message me if
... you haven't been frightened off by this point and you want to know just what the hell is going on.
