My self-summary
I'm infamous for overanalyzing things, but I try to be clever and funny about it.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
A plurality of my enjoyment comes from spending time with my dogs, Fenrir and Shiola. I recently adopted the latter; she is blind and deaf, but gets around great in my yard. I spend a lot of time reading, watching movies, and cooking meals that accidentally end up being vegan.

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.
I’m really good at
Finding the right words in life and the wrong words in scrabble. Overanalyzing things until they combust under my watchful stare.
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.
Six things I could never do without
1. My dog, Fenrir
2. Bookshelves
3. Halloween
4. A good story
5. Ice water
6. Having no clue which thing "I could never do" without the above 5 things
I spend a lot of time thinking about
As nerdy as this is, I can just sit there and think about how big the universe is. It fascinates me how infinite time is, and how even light--the fastest thing out there--can take centuries to get here from the nearest stars. The immensity of this playing field creates a nearly infinite sample set of planets and conditions that practically necessitates the seemingly-impossible: life.

Either that, or I'm still thinking about how upset I was about how Lost ended.
On a typical Friday night I am
Telling little-known greek myths or Grimm fairy tales while not entirely sober, stuck at work late trying to finish a project, putting an unfathomable amount of effort into not killing my latest orchid, or playing some video game that doesn't involve shooting things. But not all on the same Friday. At least not yet. One of these Fridays...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Even the longest-lasting condiments manage to expire in my refrigerator? I am embarrassingly good at Guitar Hero? I can do like 200 crunches, but only 30ish push-ups? When I was five I would put on magic shows? Mall Easter Bunnies freak me out? One summer in high school I helped on an awful Troma film and appear in it as a zombie? I use needless question marks at the end of statements when I'm not sure I'm answering a question satisfactorily?
You should message me if
you aren't a fan of the questions here. I feel like the dumb little OK Cupid marshmallow robot needs to buy me a drink before asking things like "would you cut someone during sex if they asked for it?"

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.
The two of us
