What I’m doing with my life
I currently work as a contractor for Yahoo, doing programming on their ads. But don't let this fool you. I'm not into ads.
Previously I worked on Facebook games for Disney, including their Pirates of the Caribbean game. B)
That's the job I moved to California for (in 2010), but they laid me off in late 2014. :(

I've also worked as a teacher and an artist. My dream life would be to design & program my own games, while also teaching kids to do the same.
I’m really good at
Tetris, drawing, painting, listening, programming, math, pull-ups, relaxing

You should message me if
Sending me a message at all is a great start. I have a deep appreciation for women who are willing to start the conversation.

Other traits I like in women: height, intelligence, athleticism... basically anything that can be considered a super power

I've written explanations on lots of my match questions. I recommend reading some. I often go right to "Unacceptable Answers" myself. I promise everything is actually acceptable.
