My self-summary
Ravenclaw with a soft spot for Gryffindors.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
Professional technogeek working for a puppy-friendly petcare startup that lets me come home with dog slobber on my pants leg and dog hair clinging to my bag. Yup, best job in the world, and I can already feel your jealousy.

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.

I’m really good at
- Fixing things that use electrons, including your phone
- Reading books (but not writing them, dammit)
- Earning airline miles
The first things people usually notice about me
That I usually have a book or Kindle within arm's reach of me at all times.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite TV shows:
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.

Favorite books:
Matilda (ages 9-12), Ender's Game (ages 12-15), Dune (ages 15-18), and the A Song of Ice and Fire series (ages 18+). Recent honorable mentions: the Martian by Andy Weir, Seveneves by Neal Stephenson, Redshirts by John Scalzi, and the Expanse series by James S.A. Corey.

Favorite movies:
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.

Favorite songs:
Cantina music is appropriate for every occasion. Though recently, I've been listening and re-listening to the Hamilton Original Broadway Cast soundtrack.

Favorite food:
The raw, uncooked flesh of large Pacific fish species, consumed atop a mound of boiled grass seeds after being dipped in fermented soybean juice (also known as nigiri-sushi).

I spend a lot of time thinking about
My puppy-cuddling schedule at work
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
On a typical Friday night I am
....watching a movie in the theater, or thinking of what to do Saturday morning/afternoon
You should message me if
If you're the type who would date a guy who buys you a book instead of a drink, then you should definitely message 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.
The two of us
