My self-summary
I'm a kid at heart. While I can be quite the adult when the occasion calls for it, most of the time I'm just . . . goofy, I guess. I dance at strange times (my happy dance looks much like a rain dance of some kind), I enjoy having fun, I will say the strangest things to get a smile from someone.

I am an avid tabletop role-player. I even built a table for my living room big enough to accommodate my friends and I so we're not all bunched up on the couches. In my free time I also like to run, karaoke, and volunteer. I used to take acting classes a few times a week, and sooner or later I'm sure I'll return. I'm not pursuing a career as an actor, but I think that as adults we don't spend enough time pretending or using our imagination.

Karaoke is blast as well. I mean, really, who doesn't want to sing Rebel Yell in front of a room full of strangers?

I'm horrible with technology - this is at times comedic or tragic. Sometimes both.
What I’m doing with my life
I have my dream job of being a financial advisor and get to help people get the most out of their lives on a weekly basis.

I also spend a fair bit of time volunteering and participating in the local LGBT community.

I was in the Marine Corps Reserves for six years. It was a fun ride.

I enjoy running and, as of mid-September, started training for my first marathon. I've never run more than a half marathon before so this is going to be fun!
I’m really good at
Reaching things on the top shelf. I have long monkey arms.

Quoting television shows. I do this constantly. It's even better when people recognize what I'm doing.

Observing details about commonplace things around me.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't know, perhaps my impeccable diction.

Many people tell me that I look significantly younger than my age suggests.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
I love reading fantasy. Raymond Feist, Elizabeth Hayden, G.R.R Martin, and Terry Goodkind are among my favorites. I also read for work - behavioral finance is a particular interest of mine.

Movies:
I'm a big fan of movies. I love to laugh, so comedies are probably my favorite. I like Will Ferrell and older Adam Sandler movies. They're just so ridiculous. I also like action and drama. I can rewatch those less, but they are great for a few views. Shawshank Redemption is my all time favorite movie. Princess Bride deserves a mention. Val Kilmer's rendition of Doc Holliday in Tombstone was amazing. Don't even get me started on super hero movies...

All in all. I'm pretty much down with anything playing on the moving picture box.

Shows:
I love all things Whedon: Buffy/Angel/Firefly/Dollhouse. Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog is epic. How I Met Your Mother, Friends, Breaking Bad, Heroes (Season 1), Dexter, House of Cards, True Blood, Game of Thrones, Spartacus, Supernatural, Arrow, The Flash, Stranger Things, Doctor Who, and The Walking Dead are also among my favorites. I prefer TV shows to movies. Marvel Cinematic Universe shows on Netflix are killing it. They can tell much more involved stories because they are not constrained by a 2 hour time limit.

Music:
I like rock music. Pop can be fun as well. All those catchy hip hop songs also tend to get stuck in my head, against my will at first, but now I just go with it. I also love pretty much all 80's hair metal; 90's alternative is good, also. Muse, Lindsay Stirling, Escala, and Pentatonix are among my favorite newer music. Music is one of those things that, for better or worse, I've never really gone beyond the mainstream.

Food:
I love coffee. We're talking fresh ground bean coffee here, not instant coffee heated in a microwave. I recently learned to roast my own coffee. So much smoke... Other than that, I try to eat healthy foods, not always with the most success; I love fresh fruit. I've recently starting replacing breakfast with a fruit smoothie. Unlike some smoothies, I think these are actually healthy - fruit, yogurt, spinach, blend. It's a good way to start the day.
The six things I could never do without
1) My sense of humor.

2) Some kind of container for water (and water to fill it). I drink a lot of water.

3) A bathroom nearby. I drink a lot of water!

4) Chapstick. Weird, I know, but everyone in my family uses this stuff like it's going out of style.

5) Coffee. I need go juice.

6) Some kind of creative outlet - acting, storytelling, singing, etc.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I would do if I got a superpower. I'm not greedy; I'd be happy with just one.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing at home or out on the town. Either way, friends are involved.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Probably my appreciation for a properly placed semicolon.

...I'm a word geek. I like interesting turns of phrase, double entendres, literary devices, and the proper use of uncommon words.
