My self-summary
Creating a self-summary is difficult, so here's the breakdown:

I am funny. I am intense. I have strong opinions about most things. I love the ocean. I do martial arts. I make decisions quickly. I am logical. I love languages. I'm curious about everything. I like books and games. I love to laugh. Make me laugh and we'll get along great. I love to think. Engage me in some kind of meaningful conversation and we'll get along better. I love to learn. Teach me something new, and we'll get along even better-er.
What I’m doing with my life
I study Mandarin Chinese, which is impressive considering I can barely speak English despite it being my native language. The end goal is to become fluent so I can confound humans in two languages instead of one.

I am a gamer. I play games, I write games, I even work in the gaming industry. My first love is tabletop RPGs, but I adore boardgames and can occasionally be persuaded to play videogames from time to time. I would rather play things that involve having people sitting around a table, however; socializing, and all that.

I feed myself by running the QA (Quality Assurance) lab at an IT company. This means that I break software and yell at developers all day to fix their code, while coordinating other people who also break software and yell.

I train Wing Chun Kung Fu several times each week for several hours at a time. I'm constantly looking to improve my skill both martially conceptually.
I’m really good at
Telling stories. I think of and tell stories every chance I get. I've often thought I would have made a good travelling storyteller in ancient times, or some kind of middle-eastern information broker. In this era I make do with writing long epics and turning them into tabletop RPGs.

Cooking. Spicy food and seafood (usually that I have caught myself) are what I am best at, but I like to think that I can toss pretty much anything together and make it at least somewhat satisfying.

Fishing. If I could be fishing every minute of every day, I'd be okay with that.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my facial scars.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favourite movie is My Neighbour Totoro, with Ip Man as a close second. I'm a sucker for a good fight sequence. I like Science Fiction and Fantasy as well, of course. Comedies are alright every once in a while.

I devour any book on UFOs or the paranormal - maximum points if you do, as well. Talk paranormal with me and we'll get along great.

My favourite book series is the Shadows of the Apt. I also like The Kingkiller Chronicles and The Prince of Nothing. China Mieville is wicked, as are Christie Golden and George R. R. Martin. On the semi-nonfiction side of things, I like classical epics such as the Ramayana, the Norse Poetic and Prose Eddas, the Mabinogion, or the Bhagavad Ghita. For nonfiction, I like books on martial arts theory and philospophy such as The Tao of Jit Kune Do and the Wing Chun Compendium.

I don't watch a lot of TV, but I like the X-Files, Firefly, Corner Gas, Torchwood, Avatar: Airbender, and Invader Zim.

Musically, I like things with lots of energy-- Heavy Metal, hard rock, celtic folk, and punk are my genres of choice. I cannot stand country, and dubstep isn't music, it is the sound of Megatron and Optimus having a love affair.
The six things I could never do without
- a kung fu partner
- a boat
- a computer
- polyhedral dice
- the ability to count to six
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Trading innocent bystanders to the zombie overlord in exchange for leniency.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing games! Usually tabletop RPGs but sometimes boardgames. Videogames if I'm really desperate. I also love concerts, so I'll be at one of those if I can be. Or, sometimes I just read books or do martial arts. Fridays are very up in the air.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sing loudly and badly when I'm alone and driving somewhere in my car.
You should message me if
If you want to share an interest in martial arts, geekery, philosophy, metal music, paranormal occurrences, fishing, or games with someone like-minded. If you have a cool story to tell, I'll probably want to hear it.
