My self-summary
Full disclosure I think I'm kind of weird, and I like that.

I'm an self diagnosed introvert who happens to be a programmer.

Life is weird and chaotic and I like some semblence of structure, so I turned the self summary into a bulleted list and added headers. Deal with it.

----Personality----

-I put a super high value on being honest.

-I pretty cool with "awkward" silence. I don't like to speak without
having something to say. Also sometimes a conversation just needs to breathe.

-I love storytime. Whether it be anecdotes or telling me about the backstory of a comic character. I just love hearing people go off about things they're into or passionate about

-If a friend comes to me with a problem I will do everything in my power to make sure it's resolved and they're happy as can be.

-I love meta discussion to the point that at a bar I sit with my friends and guess how well things are playing out for various strangers based on body language we observe.

-I'm very go with the flow and try to do whatever causes the least amount of stress for the group.

Basically personality wise I'm like a dog with a preference for meta discussion.

----Interests----

In my heart of hearts, I'm a dude whos about games, storytelling, and fantasy.

-I just started playing in a Dungeons and Dragons group online (it's like imrpov but with dice rolling)

-I grew up loving Anime. I started with FLCL, Pokemon, Digimon, Trigun, Full metal Alchemist, I even had a naruto phase. I respect the medium and think wonderful things can be done with it. I'm not huge on the culture though. You won't find any of those anime girl collectables or body pillows here.

-I'm part of a comics podcast.

-I see every comic book movie in theaters (I mostly get dragged to the bad ones by friends. I try to not be a blind fanboy)

-There was a point in my life where all the music I listened to was from a video game music remixing website (With a tiny splash of Lincoln Park because i grew up in the 90s)

-I learned how to program for the explicit purpose of making video games.

-I am currently making an app combining my favorite bits and pieces of games from when I was growing up. (A little bit of mario party here, some final fantasy here, a dash of Legend of Dragoon there)

-I take the games I play seriously. To that point I played smash bros professionally throughout my teens, and I'm currently in the top 1% of League of Legends players. I also play Overwatch but I'm bad at it.

-There was a period in my life where I went to and topped my local Magic The Gathering tournament every week for two months.

-Board games and beer with friends is my favorite friday night activity
What I’m doing with my life
Making video games, listening to chiptune, and flying through life by the seat of my pants
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food: I'm pretty flexible with food. My go to treat myself meal is cooking myself some Japanese curry.

Books/Comics: Saga, Mistborn, Discworld, i'm into fantasy stuff in general. I find non fiction to be pretty dull truth me told. Brandon Sanderson is my favorite author.

Movies: Scott Pilgrim, Deadpool, other usual dork stuff.

Shows: Flash, Twin Peaks, Doctor Who, Adventure Time, FLCL, Firefly, Arrested Development, Samurai Champloo, Zegapain, Green lantern animated series

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I also have a running conversation with my inner monologue at all times. Sometimes I forget no one else can here it and respond to it mid conversation with someone. I usually realize my mistake and add additional context to whatever I just said, but my friends have simply learned my "inner monologue" voice and adjusted accordingly.
You should message me if
You're up for being a partner in crime, a conversational partner. You're open to being shown a myriad of fantastical worlds, and meta conversations tickle your fancy. Realistcally I'll be messaging you though so I guess this last bit is moot.
