My self-summary
I'm a talkative person and fairly opinionated. It's easy for me to get into fun, engaging, and frequently long discussions, which happens pretty often.

If you're a fan of puns or sarcasm, then from me you'll see plenty! Mostly puns. Yes, puns. Sometimes I think of some that even make me roll my eyes. Like, did you hear about the guy who didn't agree with the theory of gravity? He didn't think it had much weight to it. Yeah. Like that. And I agree with you, the worst part is that I share them. I also get this mischievous smile on my face whenever I'm thinking of one of them, causing my pun-hating friends to run the other way when they notice I'm smiling.

Coffee is one of my best friends, and coffee shops are one of my preferred hangout spots. I either go there frequently with friends, but also sometimes to just relax and read or get work done.

I'm also the "Let's go on long walks" kind of guy. That is, if you can call them walks. At the pace I go they're kind of like brisk marches, but they're still fun.
What I’m doing with my life
Getting accustomed to a new place! I moved to California from Canada a few months ago for a new job, and I'm pretty happy with my choice so far. I'm spending my time exploring the state, meeting new people, and enjoying new hobbies.
I’m really good at
I enjoy, and am apparently pretty good with public speaking. I'm always looking to my next chance to be in front of an audience.
The first things people usually notice about me
If I grow my beard out a bit, people will notice that I have a bit of a ginger beard.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
For books, anything by Kurt Vonnegut! Cat's Cradle and Slaughterhouse Five are among my favorites. Recently read Animal Farm and loved it (somehow I missed it in school). I throw the odd Tom Clancy or some non-fiction in there for good measure.

For movies, Dr Strangelove is one of my all-time favorites, but I also love The Departed, most of Tarantino or Christopher Nolan, any awesome B movie, Pixar stuff, Marvel stuff... way too many to list! I usually end up going to the theater once every couple of weeks with friends.

I don't watch that much TV, but sometimes I get really caught up in a series. Game of Thrones has been a terrible addiction for a while now, I really liked Dexter back in the day, and The Newsroom / Aaron Sorkin stuff is always good (The West Wing, etc).

I don't listen to that much music beyond having the radio on, and my tastes really vary from time to time.

When it comes to food, put me in a Japanese or Chinese restaurant and I'll eat half the menu. I love finding new awesome places in China Town. I'm also a pretty big fan of Italian food, and also enjoy just going to a bar for a pint and a burger or wings on occasion.
