EDIT: My world has been destroyed. I've been sorted into Gryffindor on Pottermore.com.
Animal lover, adventurer, travel hacker, pop culture nerd, theme park enthusiast, peddler of obscure and vaguely meaningful scifi-originated quotations.
Recently adopted a dog to call my very own. As I type this up, her furry belly is warming my toes under my desk.
EDIT: Welp, due to the unfortunate realities of startup life, I have had to start looking for a new job. I doubt it'll be able to top having fifty dogs in the office to play with, but who knows? The future brings what it may.
EDIT 2: I'M GONNA BE WORKING FOR NASA, Y'ALL!
- Reading books (but not writing them, dammit)
- Earning airline miles
Was it made by Marvel, DC, or Joss Whedon? I probably watch(ed) it. Does it involve outer space, swords, the impending robot apocalypse, or all of the above? Ditto. Want a full list? Send me a message! It's too long for this section, but I love geeking out over TV shows. Currently engrossed in Critical Role and desperately wanting to play some D&D.

Inside-Out, Guardians of the Galaxy, Big Hero 6, WALL-E, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Iron Man, Avengers, Star Trek (2009), and every movie of the 90s Disney Renaissance.
Cantina music is appropriate for every occasion. Though recently, I've been listening and re-listening to the Hamilton Original Broadway Cast soundtrack.

Six things that I don't own that I could never do without
- The great outdoors
- Bookstores (and libraries)
- Great science fiction/fantasy novelists to keep those bookstores filled

What it would feel like to fly like Superman (or float in space like an astronaut)
When I'll find someone to go to Disneyland/Wondercon/Comic Con with me
Bonus points if:
....you enjoy camping, stargazing, and general outdoorsiness.
....you geek out about the things that you love
Must love dogs. Or cats. Or anything with fur and a tail, really.
