My self-summary
I spend most of my time working, reading, writing, and gazing into abysses. Games are a big thing for me; I play them, design them, and think about them. Not so much the electronic variety, though.

I've spent a lot of my life feeling somewhat ambivalent about a lot of things, so I'm trying to be a bit bolder in my personal ideologies and outlook. DC seems like a good place for me to do this. Dare to be wrong.

If we get to talking, I will very likely want to meet you. You're probably super cool, right? You totally are, don't lie.
What I’m doing with my life
Work.

I also have sort of a side hobby project I work on, designing and publishing tabletop games. I've published one so far and I've got several more in the works.

I'm trying to travel more. I almost have the time. My volunteer work for PAX helps motivate me to keep moving. I'm thinking of relocating to Seattle at some point in the distant-ish future.

Watching a veritable shit ton of lectures online.
I’m really good at
Event planning, freestyle wrestling, lucid dreaming, unconventional warfare, public speaking, and not talking about work.

Unnerving people with the number of knives on my person.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height probably. And I've been told I've "got shoulders like woah."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Jeez. Too much. I'll try to keep it short.

Books: Shibumi, HHGttG, Dune, An Incomplete Education, Ender's Shadow, A Game of You, and lots of things by Tom Robbins.

Movies: Primer, In Bruges, A Knight's Tale, Ong-Bak, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Memento, Snatch, Aliens, and The Raid.

Shows: The Wire, Firefly, Rick and Morty, Game of Thrones, Antiques Roadshow, House of Cards, and Cowboy Bebop.

Music: Rainbow, tons of pop, Kavinsky, Rush, The XX, The Sword, Ronald Jenkees, and DJ Okawari. Synthpop and hair metal.

Food: Cajun, Ethiopian, Southeast Asian. Citrus, mushrooms, seafood, and spicy flavors. Grease and salt. Good steak. Reubens. Fruit.

I admit these were picked a little randomly, mostly because I enjoy waaaaay too much of each of these categoies.
The six things I could never do without
A good knife, a cold pillow, Carmex, games, dreams, and cold air.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Traumatizingly depressing things, or fiction. It's about 50/50. One pays the bills and keeps me challenged, the other keeps me sane.
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading, watching a movie, hanging out with friends, playing a board game, or maybe video games... naw, probably working.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Bubble bath + cake + book + Meredith Brooks = perfect evening.

If you've got questions, ask.
You should message me if
Do you go to PAX? I do! If you do too, lets talk about it!

You have any questions, want to go somewhere, have an adventure, anything. Seeing as how this is a social networking site, if in doubt, message me. Get out a little. I'm pretty good about responding.
