My self-summary
Going from the geeky, shy kid when I was younger to the extremely extroverted type in high school and college, I feel like I've settled down into a (somewhat) respectable man in his thirties. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, like to be a bit wild when it's not going to cause me a heap of trouble, and I've even become adept at this whole thing called "work."

Here are a few key facts about me:

-I live in Orange County, but I'm more of an LA person and head up that way as often as possible.
-I read profiles and use that as my primary basis of choosing who to message; while physical attraction is necessary for a sexual relationship, mental/emotional connection is much more important if anything deeper is to be established, which is what I'm seeking.
-I'm a diehard liberal (not necessarily Democrat) who regularly donates to organizations like the ACLU and Planned Parenthood.
-While I am a staunch atheist, I firmly believe every person has the right to believe whatever they want as long as it doesn't infringe on another human being's rights (I follow science for what qualifies as a human being, which is the only determination that matters in a land that has separation of church and state; a fetus doesn't qualify as human until week 21 at the earliest since it's still a parasite prior to that and cannot survive outside of the womb even with extreme medical intervention).
-I think Donald Trump stands a strong chance to be the world's next leading fascist and a primary cause for World War III, which is frightening as hell considering he has access to a large nuclear arsenal.

If any of those previous statements cause problems for you, we probably wouldn't get along.
What I’m doing with my life
When I'm not busting my hump at the 9 to 6 gig quality checking websites, I'm trying to make games that help make the world a better place; even the fun games can still have a positive impact on people's lives and/or make them see things from another perspective.

You can check out my previous game work at www.spellitneiman.com; hasn't been updated in a bit, but it shows I'm not a fake and gives you enough information to start Googling the shit out of me. 😝
I’m really good at
Things and stuff; I try not to go around bragging about myself, but there are definitely some things I'm relatively skilled at doing. Probably a good conversation topic, though.
The first things people usually notice about me
I would have said how tall I am, but it seems like 6'2" is becoming more common these days...

Another thing I get is how young I look; when people guess my age they're usually off by about 10 years...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - I tend to avoid what I refer to as the fluff genres, like romance novels. I also have an extreme dislike for most Victorian era literature, but I'm always open to reading something if you think it will change my mind.

Top 5 Books/Genres/Authors/Stories (no particular order):

1. American Gods by Neil Gaiman
2. The Mist by Stephen King
3. Just about anything Shakespeare (I was a Theatre Arts major, after all)
4. The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien
5. Sandman Slim series by Richard Kadrey

Movies/Theatre - I'm a former Theatre Arts major who worked backstage/behind the camera for years, so my tastes in movies are pretty varied, but if you can describe a something as like a "chick flick" without adding clarification afterward I probably won't enjoy it (clarification can be as simple as "it's a chick flick that's well written and has a great cast"). Also, works based on Victorian era literature are pretty much right out (you'll probably notice a trend, but the strange thing is I love things that have romantic plotlines and/or take place in the past, even the Victorian era).

Top 5 Movies (Title - Director):

1. 8 1/2 - Frederico Fellini
2. Brazil - Terry Gilliam
3. Evil Dead 2 - Sam Raimi
4. Fight Club - David Fincher
5. The Thing - John Carpenter

I would list my top theatre shows, but I haven't been to a show in years; my knowledge is extremely out-of-date.

Top 5 Currently Airing TV Shows (no particular order):

1. Game of Thrones
2. Better Call Saul
3. Orphan Black
4. Ash vs Evil Dead
5. Bob's Burgers

**Honorable Mentions: The Flash, Doctor Who, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Penny Dreadful, Stranger Things.**

Music - I don't really like country other than Johnny Cash and artists with a similar style. Rap/hip-hop is also a problem for me, but that's more because there's a lot of really bad groups/performers in that genre that get more air time than the good stuff.

Top 5 Artists/Genres:

1. Johnny Cash
2. PJ Harvey
3. David Bowie
4. The Pixies
5. Trent Reznor (including Nine Inch Nails, How to Destory Angels, etc.)

Food - I'm a carnivore, so I eat meat and lots of it. I'll eat some bread and dairy as well, although I've recently discovered I'm slightly lactose intolerant so I've been cutting back on that. Give me an extremely rare steak and I'm set.

Top 5 Foods/Styles:

1. Steak, extremely rare
2. Lobster
3. Chocolate
4. Pizza
5. Sushi
Six things I could never do without
6 things I love and don't want to do without...

1. Internet
2. Cell phone
3. A functioning vehicle
4. Something that allows me to type so I can work on my game designs (I have terrible handwriting that even I struggle to read sometimes)
5. Movies
6. Video Games & Board Games (as a game designer it's more research than anything these days)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I want to be in 1/2/5/10/20 years?

Why I should care where I'll be in 1/2/5/10/20 years?

Who let that guy doing 50 into the left lane?

***Dirty, dirty things***

When/If I'll ever find LEGOs boring?

What I would look like with blonde/red/blue hair? (Note: I have never actually dyed my hair)
On a typical Friday night I am
I've been working a ton of overtime lately, so my weekday nights have not been open for doing anything fun but when I can I'm attempting to do something that doesn't have to do with work, such as hitting a bar with friends, seeing a movie, or something else that gets me out of the house.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an open book in my social life, but I recognize that appearance is important to maintaining a career; since the internet blends the borders between social and professional life too much, I do my best to filter the public appearance I present (damn you Google for making it so easy to find every piece of public dirt on a person).

I will admit that I ran through the hallways of my high school in just my boxer shorts and on a number of occasions during college streaked both in and out of buildings; in other words, I'm not afraid to get nearly/completely naked.

If you want to know more, you're going to have to ask.
You should message me if
I'm on here to make friends as well as potentially date. It can be difficult for atheists/agnostics to find each other or people accepting of those views, so I'm hoping sites like this can help on that front, especially given the rather conservative nature of Orange County. I don't see a problem with anyone having beliefs, but I will give a warning that I have strong opinions on religion and it's impact on society and the world.

On a simpler note, if you're fun, like movies, think we'd get along, and can handle the occasional late night philosophical discussion you should definitely send me a message.
