My self-summary
The name is a fairly accurate, bare bones summary. I am a geek, nerd, outcast who loves spending time with other such people. I play video games and board games with equal enjoyment and will be doing so till my dying day. I love a good story or well written characters and it colors much of my taste in much of my other hobbies and interests (games, movies, books, meeting new people). I am a thinker and a dreamer, but will jump head first into social situations just to prove to myself I can.
What I’m doing with my life
A good question I ask of myself every now and then.

I work in HR, but only because its something to do to get money to do the things I enjoy.

I have a group of friends I game with both online and off and I am trying to keep myself motivated to attend the gym regularly.

So I guess the answer is, I am trying to enjoy and maintain my lifestyle.
I’m really good at
Telling stories, making friends laugh and picking up the rules to new games.

I am a far hand at BBQing too.
The first things people usually notice about me
I play my cards close the chest, so am sometimes hard to read. Physically I am a big guy, and somewhat shy about it. I am my own worst critic, but then again so is most every other person so not much to notice there.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Name of the Wind, A Wise Man's Fear (looking forward to Rothfuss' third book in that series), The Sand Man series, The Walking Dead and assorted comic books

Favorite movies: LotR, Harry Potter, Evil Dead series, 5th Element, Aliens, Predator, Serenity, Star Wars (the original three), Legend, Labyrinth, Willow, Zombieland, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (the original) and any horror movie I can watch and make fun of with friends.

Do web comics count too?
If so: Penny Arcade (plus Trenches), Ctrl + Alt + Del, GU Comics, VG Cats, Blasternation, Chimney Speak, The Devil's Panties, Questionable Content, Awkward Zombie, Saturday morning Breakfast Cereal, Nerf This, Darths & Droids, Girls with Slingshots, Zombie Hunters, Something Positive, Hijinks Ensue, and that list will probably keep growing

Shows: Dr. Who, Torchwood, South Park, Archer, Tosh.0, Family Guy, House, Penn & Teller's Bullshit, Game of Thrones, Dexter, Walking Dead, Eureka, Sherlock, The Guild

Music: various artists and various genres, numerous soundtracks to movies that catch my fancy. Having said that I am horrible when it comes to music knowledge, I don't know trivia about bands, genres or anything related to music. If I like how it sounds to me I pick it up and that's as far as my know-how goes heh.

Food: I'm pretty open minded about trying anything once
The six things I could never do without
Friends, Family, Games (board games, tabletop and digital), a quiet space to call my own, a clean kitchen to cook in, and meat
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Random assortment of things that find their way into my head. As I have said, I am a bit of a day dreamer when left to my own devices.

While I am very much a creature of the moment, I will think about my future, where I am going and what I still need to do to get there. Though this is a mixed bag since I will often times think of the worst case scenario first.

Finally, I think about stories. Tales of various themes and moods, I think about what elements to add or use if I were to turn that story into a game, I think about the characters if I was just going to jot the story down, or I just laugh to myself if its funny enough and no one around to share it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends to play some games at the local hobby shop, or going to see a movie that looked just interesting enough to warrant the 20+ dollars to see it on the big screen. If none of the above, then at home relaxing, cooking, gaming or watching a bad horror movie with my roommate so we can crack jokes the entire way through.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Despite the degree and ability to listen, I am terrible at being able to connect to people sometimes. Certain social situations terrify me and that is when I try to be my most outgoing, preferring to go out in a blaze of glory so to speak, rather than simply fade out in my own little corner.

I am also not the easiest to get a read on. I like to hide behind humor and bullshit because I have a habit of expecting the worst. I don't come out with whats on my mind unless I've given it a good thinking over and that can sometimes come off as cold or uncaring.
You should message me if
You have an interest in getting to know a gamer with a geeky sense of humor who tries to have an open mind about life. Storytelling and gaming are a big part of my joy in life and would enjoy the company of someone with similar interests.
