My self-summary
I'm into computers, video games, Star Wars, reading, sci-fi, board games, and other geekeries. I also like just watching movies, or tv. I occasionally go bowling and I play the trumpet. I also like sciencey things, especially outer space. Show me a high-resolution picture of Saturn or Jupiter and I will get lost in its beauty.

I am a knowledge fiend. The day you stop learning is the day you die. If I hear about something that I want to learn more about, I will look it up on google or wikipedia. So much time gets lost looking up one thing in wikipedia, opening up 3-4 related entries, and getting caught in a vicious cycle. The discovery channel is like candy to me and I must be careful to watch it in moderation.

I'm not into clubs or noisy bars. I prefer to drink with friends in a quiet setting where we can have a good time together - usually with a couple board games from my decent-sized and growing collection. I'm also willing to try pretty much anything once, as long as I have the right company to prod me.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a software engineer. I get to bend computers to my will. The problems I'm solving are interesting and the company and co-workers are great.
I’m really good at
Cooking. I cook almost every day and mostly from scratch without recipes. I even help to teach a cooking class.
The first things people usually notice about me
I tend to be quiet whenever I am introduced to anyone new. That wears off after I figure out how you'll react to my antics.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Star Wars (I have a collection of 100 novels and counting), Tom Clancy, Isaac Asimov, the Ender series, Harry Potter (c'mon, how can you not like those books?), Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Peter F. Hamilton, David Brin, Footfall

Movies: Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Serenity. I'm actually fairly behind on current movies as I prefer watching movies at home instead of in a theater.

Music: Classical, jazz, rock, techno, almost anything besides rap, music without lyrics (words I'm reading and words I hear tend to get jumbled together, and I rarely am just listening to music). Favorite artists include Maynard Ferguson, Chuck Mangione, They Might Be Giants, Jonathan Coulton, and The Brian Setzer Orchestra.

Food: Pizza, Mexican, Chinese, steak, chicken, strawberries (especially chocolate-covered!), almost anything. I love food and I consider myself to be a decent cook.

TV Shows: Simpsons, South Park, Lost, Heroes, Stargate, superhero cartoons (Batman:TAS, Superman:TAS, Justice League, Batman Beyond), Firefly, Mythbusters, Invader Zim, Game of Thrones, The Office, The Walking Dead, random things on Discovery, the History Channel, or Food Network.
Six things I could never do without
1. A computer
2. A snack of some sort
3. Sleep
4. My good friends
5. Board/card/party games
6. My cat
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What the future might hold.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either with some friends having a blast and playing games or enjoying a quiet evening at home.
You should message me if
- Something that I've written about myself has caught your eye.
- You think we have some things in common.
- You can say more than "hello" at me (if I messaged you, I've tried to put some thought into what I've said)
The two of us
