My self-summary
I'm Dan and I’d describe myself as a geeky but mature guy. While I still do enjoy some geeky things like playing video games (my favorite types being RPGs and co-op games) and it is the origin of my love of adventure. As I have gotten older I have also learned to use that sense of adventure to enjoy getting out and exploring world around me as well.

Socially I am initially somewhat quiet in larger groups, but I become more talkative and outgoing once I get to know people or in small groups. However, I really feel like I can show my true self in intimate one on one conversation.

If you're interested in personality tests
MBTI: INTJ
Enneagram: 5 wing 4
What I’m doing with my life
I'm the co-founder of an E-Book publishing company. The company is still small; but we have a talented team and some great authors working with us.
I’m really good at
Remembering things from 15 years ago, that apparently no one else does anymore.

Karaoke, not sure how good of a singer I am now but I always go all out.

Planning for important future events such as what should I do in the Zombie Apocalypse and if I become rich where will I keep my giant robot.

Forgetting that sarcasm, hyperbole and all those fun things are hard to convey online. (See previous item in list)
The first things people usually notice about me
They're usually trying to figure out what my ethnicity is.

I'm Half Japanese and Half German if you're curious.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:: I prefer to read non-fiction and love absorbing new information about business, science, technology, psychology and philosophy.

However, a few pieces of literature I did enjoy are Ender's Game, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy plus The Hobbit and Beowulf.

Television: Scrubs, Seinfeld, How I met your Mother (maybe not so much after that last episode), Conan, Mythbusters, SNL, The Blacklist, Parts Unknown, and for some anime; Gundam, Evangelion, Code Geass, Fullmetal Alchemist, Madoka and Death Note.

Movies: Star Wars, Princess Mononoke, Blade Runner, The Shawshank Redemption, Spaceballs, Pacific Rim.

Generally, I like Sci-fi, War, Fantasy, and Comedies.

Music:: I can find music that I enjoy in almost any genre, but my preferences tend to lean towards classic rock from the 60's to the 80's.

Food: Pizza, Ramen (not that crappy dried stuff, the real thing from a ramen shop), Matsutake, Ice Cream. I guess I could be called a foodie because having adventures where I get to try new foods is one of my favorite parts about living in New York.

Video Games: Final Fantasy (IV, VI and Tactics are my favorites), Kingdom Hearts, The Legend of Zelda, Smash Brothers, Xenogears, Chrono Trigger, Ico, Shadows of the Colossus, Zelda, Okami, Dragon Force and I'm sure there are others.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Thinking is apparently one of my favorite hobbies according to a good friend of mine. I try to look at every situation I could encounter from every angle possible.
On a typical Friday night I am
Ideally, I wouldn’t have a typical Friday night. I would much rather be having new experiences and adventures than doing the same thing every week.

However, since I know that is unrealistic (at least at this point in my life) I'm usually hanging out with friends, eating out somewhere, kicking back and relaxing with a good video game or catching up on the sleep I missed during the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
This is probably a good place to admit that I am actually an evil genius that is planning to take over the world. I would have mentioned this in the previous section as an allusion to a certain cartoon but it is really more my day job and I do need a break from it sometimes.

Otherwise, I really don't have many things I keep private, I find that it is better to be open and honest. So, if there is anything you want to know, ask and I will do my best to answer.
You should message me if
You managed to read my wall of text and think I'm interesting.
