My self-summary
I'm John.
Looking for someone to do fun things around Beijing with.
I'm artistic, too. I draw a bunch and enjoy other creative types.

I just finished a video game production cycle at school with a team of twenty people. Check out our game at
What I’m doing with my life
I just left the US for my first time and will be living in Beijing for at least a year.
I'll be focusing on working and saving and practicing my programming.
I’m really good at
I am really good at drawing. I love to draw people. I do a lot of ballpoint pen sketches of people on the Max train. I am actually pretty damned good. At least I am at something in life, yeah?
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile. I have been getting told more and more how nice my smile is.
Or that I am a tall skinny white dude?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
BOOKSI love Sci-Fi! I read Larry Niven's Ringworld, which was awesome. I read Carl Sagan's Cosmos and Richard Dawkin's The God Delusion. I love to read shampoo bottles when I shower! I tried reading the Bible; so boring. I'm also always reading stuff I find on The Hobbit, also.

But I love lots of orchestral music. And electronica. But I am open to many kinds of music.
Specifically Queen, Two Steps From Hell, E.S. Posthumous, Hans Zimmer, Michael Salvatori, Nobuo Uematsu, Daft Punk, Wolfgang Gartner, Birdy Nam Nam, Bassnectar, Milkman, Bag Raiders, Crystal Method, Crystal Castles, Fatboy Slim, Sub Focus, Empire of the Sun, Phoenix, Something A La Mode, Gorillaz, Swedish House Mafia, Pendulum, Mord Fustang, Miike Snow, The Prodigy, Justice, Avicii, Symphony of Science, Lindsey Stirling, White Stripes, The Glitch Mob, MSTRKRFT, Deadmau5, They Might Be Giants, The Strokes, Nujabes, Moby, Celtic Woman, Enya, Grimes, and many others.

I really enjoy movies like 2001 A Space Odyssey, and Tron, 300, and all the James Bond films. I'm a Star Trek, not a Star Wars kind of guy. I don't dislike Star Wars, just not super into it.
The Matrix, Bill and Ted, Moon, Blade Runner, Pacific Rim, and plenty of others.

I love all kinds of food, too! :D


I love The Halo games. As well as Mass Effect 1, 2, & 3. Dishonored, Skyrim, Portal 1 & 2. Final Fantasy's I, II, IV, VII, XII, and Tactics:Advanced 1 & 2. Minish Cap. Golden Sun. Chrono Trigger and Super Metroid. Super Smash Bro's (Luigi is my main man). I have and play a lot others. I own a SNES, GB, GBC, GBA. PSP, XBOX 360, and PC.
The six things I could never do without
1. A pen and paper. I love to draw or doodle. But keeping my hands busy is something I just do. I am fidgety with my hands at times.

2. Technology. I love technology. I can be away from it for a while, but I could never imagine saying goodbye.

3. Chrome Garbage Can.

4. MUSIC. I am really into instrumental and ambient stuff. Especially classical or electronic lounge music. Stuff that I can draw or do homework to. Often the mood of a piece can inspire me, and so music is partly responsible for the kind of art I produce.

5. REDDIT. I pretty much live on Reddit.

6. The internet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking about the universe, our origins, how things exist and about video games. How to make them and how to make money off them.

I think about nature, my place in it, about mortality and my family.
On a typical Friday night I am
I have no idea. I don't yet know what to do in Beijing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Underneath all my clothes, I'm naked.
You should message me if
You want to maybe go get a drink or play a board game or go do something fun.

If you want to perhaps work out together or learn to dance with me or motivate each other to do great things.

I am totally cool with just talking about anything. :)

Also if you want someone to be creative with or bounce ideas off of, I'm good for that, too. I can help give creative advice.
