My self-summary
There once was a man named Nik,
With a mind sharp and a wit quick.
He fell into a cookie jar,
In the kitchen with a door ajar,
That's the price of playing treat or trick.
What I’m doing with my life
I keep a pretty busy social calendar! I'm a mentor in a local programming group and a team member in a local anime discussion group. As part of the latter, I run a recurring meetup for tabletop and social games. It's a really rewarding hobby that lets me cut loose and be a goofball, which I'm 1000% into.

I occasionally compose and play for the piano, and of late I've been making short video games.

Professionally, I do the thing where I type 01101000011010001000 into a computer and cool stuff happens.
I’m really good at
Mental math, public speaking, and discerning double-stuffed oreos from regular oreos at a glance.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Parks and Rec, Brooklyn 99, and Last Week Tonight.

Chrono Trigger, Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, and Undertale.
The Lies of Locke Lamora and Harry Potter.
One Piece, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and Steven Universe.

Lately, any news story about American or world politics.

I'll list my favorite foods here, since food is love.
Pizza (like any good Chicagoan, I have strong opinions about deep dish pizza), greek, thai, and korean food. Show me a great restaurant that serves any of these cuisines and I will like you immediately.
Six things I could never do without
1. An assortment of caffeine-free teas.
2. The cold side of the pillow.
3. A notebook & pencil.
4. A d20.
5. Gratitude.
6. Whatever the opposite of "spiders" is.
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying out a new restaurant, playing board games, or ordering in and watching poor-quality youtube videos with friends.
You should message me if
Any of the following sound like fun date ideas to you:

1) Grabbing lunch / bubble tea in Chinatown, walking around in the park, and taking a ride on the water taxi.

2) Visiting the Aquarium, Planetarium, or the Field Museum, and then getting dinner.

3) Going on a hot chocolate and/or mozzarella stick crawl, while walking around the city and maybe catching some pokemon.
