My self-summary
Well... I suppose it's time for the self absorbed 'me' story. I'm 31 and six years into my career. Went to Central Washington U, where I graduated with a degree in graphic design. Once I graduated I continued to work for a small boutique design firm in Ellensburg, then moved back to Vancouver for a stint and have finally settled up in the greater Seattle, WA area for the time being. Currently I work for one of the many Microsoft vendors as a Software Development Engineer, and Designer. Our Creative Director calls me a purple unicorn. Basically I design things to look awesome and then I make them a reality.
If all goes as planned I'll have college, and car debt paid off in the next couple years and then start saving for the future. In a perfect world I will either start my own design firm, or bakery. I know the two seem rather distant from each other on the career spectrum, but I have a passion for both.
So that seems a bit longer than a summary should be, but I hope you'll forgive it.
What I’m doing with my life
- Seeking a kindred spirit of sorts, to take part in shennanigans and tomfoolery with. Hence the OKCupid account.
- Also getting back into the shape I was in at 20, if not better. Yay for Crossfit! I am loving it. I'm feeling better, eating healthier, and just love life a little more knowing I'm making a better future for myself fiscally and physically.
- Oh! And I'm always trying to better my skills in graphic design/art in general.
I’m really good at
Running, listening, cooking, cleaning things up, cribbage, helping my grandparents with their computer related problems, flirting (sometimes), and games of all sorts.
The first things people usually notice about me
If they know my father: how similar we are (mannerisms, expressions, etc)
If they are just meeting me: personality, I've been told I seem like a leader, but I don't know. I've also been told I have nice eyes. It's really all in the eye of the beholder in my opinion.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: when I used to read a lot I preferred fantasy/fiction. Terry Goodkind, Laura Hamilton, JK Rowling. I don't read books as much anymore unless they're about my trade. Really liked the first Hunger Games book, not so much the other two.

Movies: The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Darjeeling Limited, Wanted, Swordfish, Reservoir Dogs, all super hero flicks, even the comedic ones, most James Bond flicks, any good action/scifi/fantasy flick, and all comedies. Pretty much the only type of movie that's NOT on my HAVE to watch list would be the modern "hack and slash, we have lots of shock value based gratuitous violence and we're trying to be seriously scary" films. (Saw series, hostel, etc...)

Music: Deadmau5, Grimes, Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip, Nicki Minaj, The Decemberists, The Barenaked Ladies, The White Stripes, Brendan Benson, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, The Cold War Kids, The Black Kids, Bootie Mashups (Bootleg music mashups, nothing to do with butts), Lincoln Park, Frank Sinatra, All sorts of Classical (I listen to King fm), Daft Punk, Ferry Corsten, Gwen Stefani, etc... ad nauseum.

Shows: Dexter, Face Off, Archer, Californication, pretty much any show that has ever been based on mutants, magic, or super heroes/the supernatural... Yeah I'm nerdy.
Six things I could never do without
A friend
Pen/pencil and paper
Fresh Air
A goal
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The small nuances in life, why other people do the things they do, what are those closest to me thinking and feeling. How I can help my friends and family. What's for dinner.
On a typical Friday night I am
If I'm lucky: out enjoying drinks and dancing with friends.
If everyone's being homebodies: video games and lots of them, with a side of movies/music, and my computer for designing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
To anyone: I feel like I still have a lot to learn about life and love.

To close friends: I'll let you know if I feel close enough to you.
You should message me if
You feel like it. This is a silly question, I like to meet all new people.
The two of us
