I'm an odd nerdy blend. I like good stories and science things and clever creative art. Pondering how there are more cells in my body than stars in the galaxy somehow cheers me up, then makes me think I should lose some weight, then cheers me up again. Then I remember that a small percentage of those cells and stars are out to kill me, but I get over it and watch batman or something.
I recently bought a house in Pflugerville. I loved being close to downtown, but throwing rent money down a black hole every month just stopped making sense. Trying to settle in and make the place my own has been a slow gradual process.
I work at a television station, mostly producing short videos for air. Sometimes they send me around the word to film things. I've been to Tanzania, China, India, and Thailand. There are plenty more countries and continents on the agenda for this year that I'm looking forward to.
Telling myths and fairy tales. Being there for people in ways they rarely realize.

Food: I like cooking, but cooking good food for one can be a bit difficult. I'm not vegan, but a lot of times I'll cook something that turns out really good and then hours later come to the realization that it was vegan or vegetarian. Don't believe me? Guess you'll just have to talk me into cooking for you.
4. A good story
5. Ice water
6. Having no clue which thing "I could never do" without the above 5 things
Either that, or I'm still thinking about how upset I was about how Lost ended.
I'm always up for a good conversation or friendly debate. I'm perfectly capable of making platonic friends, and I tend not to completely make up my mind about a person just because we had dinner together over a couple drinks.
I want a serious relationship that I can dedicate myself to. When I end up with someone, I want it to be a reasonably intelligent atheist who likes animals. I don't really have a "type" beyond that. If asked to conjure up an image of the perfect woman, I don't really rule much out, so my mind just sort of goes blank from infinite possibilities. If we click, I'll find the beauty in what you do, regardless of whether you're trying to save the world or take it over.
