My self-summary
In short, I am a nerd. I like intellectual discussions about science politics, and philosophy. I like books and games. I like Star Trek.

But I also like being spontaneous and going hiking and being outdoors, going out on random adventures, and traveling. I have been to 49 out of the 50 states and a dozen countries, and I plan on traveling to much more whenever I have the money and time to.

Personality wise, I am INTJ/P, for those of you that know/care about that sort of thing. Generally, I am a relaxed, but serious person. Fairly introverted, but still sociable. Funny, or at least I like to thinks so.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a grad student at UCR studying fungal genomics and bioinformatics.
I’m really good at
Trivia, and Science
The first things people usually notice about me
My size. There is a running joke about my viking like stature and appearance.

My T-shirts, my interactions with strangers start with the words "I like your t-shirt".
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
In terms of books, I tend to stick to the scifi and fantasy genres. Favorite authors include Jim Butcher, Terry Brooks, Piers Anthony, Phillip Pullman, G RR Martin, Heinlein, Vonnegut, Orwell, and Douglas Aadams. I do read outside of the scifi/fantasy genres, but my favorite books and authors seem to be exclusively there. I read pretty frequently and I tear through new books quickly, so I am always looking for new books to fill my kindle, so if you have any suggestions by all means send them to me.

For movies, I am kind of all over the map. It's difficult to pick out just a few, but here goes: The Holy Grail, The Princess Bride, Galaxy Quest, Frequently Asked Questions about Time Travel, The Matrix. I also have a soft spot for B horror and scifi movies.

My favorite shows stay pretty much in the Sci Fi family. Star Trek, Doctor Who, X Files, Furturama, Farscape, Stargate etc. Currently, I watch Game of Thrones,Archer, and Big Bang Theory, among others. I do enjoy other genres though.

For me, good music is good music regardless of genre. If you look at my collection there is everything from classic rock to techno. I have a pretty damn large collection of music spanning many decades.

I enjoy food from all over. Particularly Indian, Mexican, and good Chinese. I'm also a fair cook in those cuisines too, or at least the first two.

For video games, I mostly play rpgs like Dragon Age, Fallout, or Elder Scrolls series. A few strategy or platformers games here and there. I very rarely play FPS's, but I make an exception for Borderlands and Bioshock. Generally, I like games that tell a good story.
