My self-summary
Few things make me happier than ridiculously hot hot sauce, bass solos, progressive rock and metal, bacon, Salvador Dali, maps, population statistics, Objectivism, studying animation, game design, cult films, and divisive video games.

My primary passions are music, video games (making them, playing them, studying them...), and 3D modeling. I play bass, have very diverse and somewhat eclectic musical tastes, and I regularly attend concerts.

I hate being stationary for long periods of time. I regularly go on random walks or drives around Atlanta whenever I have time to spare.

I've never been known to turn down an opportunity to go on a road trip. My favorite so far was a road trip to Dallas, TX with some friends to see Iron Maiden and Dream Theater.

I hope to one day bicycle to California, either by my own effort or by being tied to the back of a Volkswagen van.
What I’m doing with my life
I also work as a Marketing Success Manager at a marketing software company. I do commission photography and art on occasion, drive random places whenever the opportunity arises, and try to regularly expose friends to new films, games, and music.
I’m really good at
cinematography
directions and geography
appreciating absurd things
breathing air
straight talk
Photoshop
Maya
literalizing figures of speech
making puns

my mustache or my shirts.
I also receive compliments on my eyes fairly often.

why things that undergo fusion fuse, but things that undergo fission don't fiss
On a typical Friday night I am
putting the final touches on a project or hanging out with my friends, which usually entails watching a movie and/or playing video games or Munchkin. Occasionally I will go to concerts or hang out in Little Five Points.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I prefer Chinese Democracy over older Guns 'n' Roses albums.
