My self-summary
Hi, I'm Zack. Welcome to my profile!

So, here's a bit about yours truly. I am a published author of two books and screenwriter of a short film. Both the novels and the film are based on the horror genre, of which I am a HUGE fan! I also occasionally host a talk-show or two on a geeky blog that I run with a few friends.

I've always been one to march to my own beat. I've been a DJ, a talk-radio host, a podcaster, a press-kit writer, a film critic, and the general manager of an net-radio station. I'm probably forgetting a few things, but I guess the point I'm trying to make is that I enjoy seeing what life has to offer. Currently, I'm a self-employed web site designer, graphic designer, video editor and freelance writer.

I'm definitely a film geek. So if you enjoy movies, that's a major plus. I love pretty much all genres, but I am a bit partial to horror. It's probably due to growing up with Ghostbuster action figures and reading too many Goosebumps books in grade school. I'm also a big comic book geek (both Marvel and DC), and also enjoy watching anime and playing the occasional PC game. I love Dungeons & Dragons, Magic the Gathering and Warhammer 40K. I'd love to get more involved with tabletop gaming, but can never find anyone to play. So yep, I am pure geek, and proud of it!

In short, I suppose I'm looking for the geek girl of my dreams. I want someone to laugh with and share life with. Someone that whether it has been a good day or bad, we can't wait share it. Communication is a must in any relationship, even if it's just during raids in WoW. I want a friend first and then possibly/hopefully a romantic partner. Someone with an artistic side would be amazing, but not required. I really love the energy and passion of bouncing ideas off each other and creating something awesome... Even if we are the only ones that can appreciate its awesomeness. Maybe it's the writer in me, but I'd like to think that I'm a hopeless romantic gentleman at heart. I want someone that I can treat like a queen. Someone that I can surprise with flowers and hold close on cold rainy nights.

For complete disclosure I should mention that I have used a wheelchair my entire life. More specifically, a powerchair. I'm not paralyzed by any means, but I do have some spinal damage that causes weakness. For some this is a deal-breaker, but honestly if you've read this far then there must be something that has drawn your interest. So feel free to message me if you think we might click, or you're looking for someone to talk geeky with. We might just hit it off.
What I’m doing with my life
Doing the "day job," writing screenplays/books and having fun with podcasting and blogging. I'd love to eventually learn how to speak Japanese. Perhaps one day I'll pass the JLPT so I can add interpreter to my list of skills. Regardless, I love Japanese culture, so studying the language has hardly been a chore.
I’m really good at
I'm a good listener. I'm kind of my family's unofficial psychiatrist. Whenever someone has a problem, they come to me. They also come to me for all their tech problems, so I stay busy.

I'm also not too shabby at writing. It's a passion of mine.
The first things people usually notice about me
My wheelchair and the really handsome dude sitting in it. After I kick that guy out of my chair, they then usually notice my eyes... or my somewhat strange sense of humor.

Six things I could never do without
My Laptop
The Internet
Geek Culture
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next project. My current project. How things work. What makes people tick. What to type next.

I think a lot about the future too. I'm in no rush to get married, but I know that I want to share my future with someone special.
On a typical Friday night I am
Writing, reading, studying, working on a project, playing a video game or catching up on my DVR... I know, life of the party right here, eh?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Clowns used to scare the crap out of me. I had nightmares every night for months when I was a kid thanks to Steven King's IT... And people wonder why I write horror?

I hate it when people assume that just because I use a wheelchair that I must be a bit slow in the head. I think it's like when people speak loudly to blind people.
You should message me if
If you think we might click or you are looking for someone to talk geeky with. Don't be shy. I don't bite...unless asked to. ;)
The two of us
