My self-summary
Lover of life, creativity, and travel. I like telling and listening to stories, and surprising people with things that make them happy. I love making people laugh with a clever comment, but when my friends need me, it's important to me to support them. Originally from LA; I dream of getting to spend the winters there and the summers here.

There's a lot of really cool stuff to do in the world, and I want to do all of it. I've gone scuba diving off of Maui, both officiated AND dueled with the groom at a wedding (different events), flown a plane over Seattle, and performed with a taiko group in rural Japan. And I'm just getting started.
What I’m doing with my life
You know how when you were a kid, you dreamed about being something exciting, something outrageous, maybe even impossible when you grew up? Like a movie star, or an astronaut. I wanted to be a video game designer. Silly right? Anyway, I'm a video game designer. Making people happy is important to me, and it brings me a lot of satisfaction to know that my work brings joy to lots of people all around the world.

I also write short fiction and compose music. They're great for staying creative outside of work, and allow me to express myself in more ways. Different media are good for communicating different things, so I try to pick what's best for what I'm trying to get across.

I love to travel! I've been to about a dozen of the states, and nearly as many countries across Europe and Asia. I love visiting new places and seeing what life is like there! There's so much to the world, and I want to see and experience as much of it as possible.
I’m really good at
making people laugh. I love doing it, too. I really like making people happy. I'm probably the loudest introvert you'll ever meet.
The first things people usually notice about me
is my beard. People assume I'm a redhead because my beard is red. I don't understand this.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Moby Dick, The Righteous Mind, American Nations, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Brothers Karamazov, the Silo series.

Movies: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Dr. Strangelove, Blade Runner, Star Wars. I have film maker friends; I try to support them whenever they have something new come out.

Music: Blind Guardian, Van Canto, Nightwish, Bruce Springsteen, Sabaton, Falconer, Avantasia, Apocalpytica, Iron Maiden. I've seen about half of those, and hope to see more. I love going to concerts.

Food: Korean, Thai, Chinese, Mexican, Indian, American. Also enjoy scotch. When I travel, I try to eat what I can't eat at home as much as possible.
Six things I could never do without
My friends - I'm loyal to a fault.
Music - What can I say? Music keeps me sane.
Travel - There's so much world out there; I love seeing new places and experiencing how other people live.
Books - I love reading, always have. I tend to alternate between denser, more literary stuff and lighter nonfiction or pop fiction.
Creativity - I've always got a few side projects going. It's practically compulsive behavior.
Curiosity - There's always something new to discover, something new to learn. It's how people grow.
Numeracy - I'd hate to make some silly counting mistake.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to make things better for people. I get a lot of satisfaction from figuring out a way to make something less wasteful.

I also spend a lot of time thinking about life, and how to live it well. How can I be making the most of myself, and of the time I have in the world?

There's also usually a couple ideas for a project bouncing around in my head at any given time. Well, more than a couple.
On a typical Friday night I am
hanging out with friends, reading something interesting, or working on one of my many side projects.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that my making fun of something doesn't mean I dislike it. I just have a sarcastic (and a bit dark) sense of humor.
You should message me if
you think "It'll make a great story" is a good enough reason to do something.

I'm looking for an intelligent woman who has at least a solid direction for what she wants to be doing in life, and strong sense of who she is. If that's you, I'd love to hear from you!
