I'm always open to talking to new people and meeting new friends, especially if we have a lot of the same interests. It's hard to find that in the area sometimes. What that means, honestly... is I really would love to have more nerdy people in my life. Let's hang out and talk about fantasy worlds and obscure hobbies for hours.
I ran a YouTube gaming channel for quite some time that got fairly popular, but had since stopped it. I'm looking to get back into streaming and YouTube again shortly. I still show some of that stuff off, even though I'm not in it anymore.
If I'm out of work and not being a hermit, I'll head out and chat it up every now and then at Old Soul Brewery. It's kind of my place; it's amazing there.
* Learning too many things, taking on too many fun projects, and then managing them to a ridiculous extent because even if I had 48 hours in a day I don't think I could do everything I want.
* Musical stuff. Playlist curation, singing, percussion, acting/being in muscials, making a playlist for everything. Seriously. **Everything.**
My hair is pretty damn long and my beard is scruffy, so it's probably that.

* I've done some REALLY nerdy stuff in my life. For instance, I sometimes play DDR in tournaments for money, and travel way too far to do so. Didn't win any of the big ones, but won some small ones.
* I've made and released some electronic/chiptune music online for a few different reasons. One of my tracks made it into a small little indie game; I'm pretty proud of that.
