My self-summary
Hiya! I'm New to SoCal. Few friends and fewer experiences here so far, but maybe y'all OKCupe-o's can change that, yeah?

Note really sure how to describe myself! An introvert who likes people? When I was growing up, I wanted to be vice-president. I work in the tech industry but, somehow, am not a libertarian jerkwad (I hope). I'm a feminist (I hope).

I was born in Florida! I lived in the Bay for 3 years before moving here, San Luis Obispo before that, and the Bay again before that. I don't watch T.V. or drink soda. My favorite insult is to call something "warm garbage." I've got two degrees--so I'm definitely twice as smart as somebody with one degree (only half as smart as somebody with 4 degrees, though :( )

Note: white as a ghost
What I’m doing with my life
I work at a little game studio called Blizzard ;O I'm a technical artist. Some of my job is programming tools for artists. Some of it is troubleshooting and streamlining the art production process. Basically, my job is to make making art easy!

Year four of my five-year-plan consists of "Learn japanese" and "Learn the banjo" but I'm thinking I should move one or both of those things up on the timetable.
I’m really good at
Nesting parentheticals (for real (you have no idea))

I can predict when my alarm clock is going to go off and wake up ten minutes before it does. I can touch-type with my just my index fingers like a MO-FUGGA.

I'm bad at cooking. REAL BAD. But I'd like to learn.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't sweat. It's a blessing and a curse (mostly a curse).

I'm skinny as heck (the not sweating makes exercise unpleasant unless it's really cold outside, and it SURE AS HECK isn't ever cold outside in Santa Ana :'( )
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: Favorite album is No Balance Palace by Kashmir. It and Nirvana Unplugged used to get me through the 4-hour drive between San Luis Obispo and Oakland. I fucking love Buke and Gase. I'm currently over-listening to Westkust.

My favorite book is Blood Meridian. I dig good (read: old) sci-fi. Just finished One Hundred Years of Solitude (good, but not as good as Borges). Recommend something!

My favorite movie is The Fountain. Darren Aronofsky has never made a bad movie in my eyes (this includes Noah, which was a bad movie). David Lynch has made one. The Coen brothers are p great

Food: I can't eat cheese and I love velveeta. Life is suffering?? Cantelope is the God-Fruit, but bananas are close (let's say Pope-Fruit). I like sherbet more than ice cream.

My favorite gin is CapRock, but--like--I'm not going to pretend I'm an expert on gins (I'm not a classy guy, okay (I do like gin though))

My favorite video game is Kentucky Route Zero.

Last but not least, WEBCOMICS: Unsounded. Judecca. Vattu. Cucumber Quest. A Lesson Is Learned But The Damage Is Irreversible.
The six things I could never do without
My sister. Eyesight. Bread. Wind. Air conditioning. People smarter than me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What the back of my own head looks like.

Rendering. OH MY GOD I'M A NERD

I've lately spent a lot of time trying to reconcile my desire to make video games with the gross-ass shambles that is the games industry. Most games aren't worth anybody's time, so I try doubly hard to be aware of the ones that are.

Politics and economics. My place in the future America. The subjectivity of "having your shit together"
On a typical Friday night I am
Breathing and sometimes eating and almost certainly using most of my senses to be aware of whatever environment I find myself in. Sometimes I drink with friends! Sometimes I sit at home and watch Youtube (BEST FRIENDS ZAIBATSU). I'm never being obstinate and refusing to do cool things if I know about cool things.

I play board games with friends at a cozy little bar in Long Beach on Sundays. That's my "friday night," to be honest.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Flavored chapstick is way better than plain chapstick.
You should message me if
You find me SEXY AS HELL (alternatively: you wanna play through Kentucky Route Zero w/ me)

You wanna go kayaking! I love kayaking. Not, you know, triple-diamond rapids or whatever. Just boatin' and floatin'. I'm also into hiking and I LOVE snow things.

And finally: if you've got any constructive criticism about my profile! I've got an utter lack of self awareness about this shit.
