My self-summary
I am not on this site to find a relationship, but I'd be glad to talk to people who share my interests. Some of the information below is probably very outdated, as I do not visit this site frequently anymore.

I'm a complete nerd. If you don't like nerds, you may as well stop reading here. ^_^

I am a professional game designer. I've worked on games like World of Warcraft, Starcraft II, Neverwinter, and Star Trek Online: Legacy of Romulus.

I'm the type of person who constantly dreams about the future, both in waking hours and sleep, and tries his best to make the more reasonable dreams come true. I have a passion for fiction, music, and pretty much any form of art. Sometimes, I feel like my life started with the Legend of Zelda or my first Dungeons and Dragons game, since medieval fantasy has come to define so much of my personality. The modern world still fascinates me as well; I enjoy studying people, which was one of my major sources for motivation in college. Philosophy and anthropology interest me a great deal. Learning in general is very important to me, and I tend appreciate people of a similar mindset very much.

I also have stairs in my house.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a bachelor's degree in Religious Studies from UCSB. I spent two years there after graduating from Los Angeles Pierce College, and I enjoyed it a great deal.

Earlier in my career, I wrote for several role-playing game books. I currently work at as a professional game designer. I enjoy it immensely, and I also run LARP games as a hobby. I'm also working on writing fantasy novels, but I haven't published anything just yet.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have fairly long, shiny black hair.

In terms of my personality, I'm told I have a strong presence. I tend to be quick to take the initiative, and I enjoy leadership roles.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: To name a few: A Song of Fire and Ice series, anything by Brandon Sanderson (such as Mistborn), Dragonlance series (esp. Chronicles and Legends), the Taltos novels, The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss, The First Law trilogy, Forgotten Realms (esp. The Cleric Quintet and Time of Troubles novels), Ravenloft series, The Princess Bride, translated Chretien De Troyes romances (i.e. early Arthurian legends). I generally like reading anything involving mythology or high/dark fantasy.

Movies: The Princess Bride, Spaceballs, Monty Python and the Quest for the Holy Grail, The Fellowship of the Ring, The Ring of the Nibelungs, Paradise Lost. I also tend to enjoy psychological thrillers, such as Momento and A Scanner Darkly. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and Pacific Rim are some recent favorites.

Music: A variety of odd music. A few examples: Nightwish, Sonata Arctica, Offspring, Greenday, Sublime, Poe, Cranberries, Stratovarius, Lunatica, Ayreon, Epica, Dragonforce, Dream Evil, Conjure One, and practically any celtic or classical music. I also enjoy a great deal of video game music (such as Nobou Uematsu's work), and anime soundtracks, and vocaloids.

TV Shows: Game of Thrones and Battlestar Galactica would probably be at the top of my list, followed by Rome. I also watch most of Joss Whedon's shows, as well as things like Arrow, Supernatural, etc. Recently, I watched - and loved - True Detective.

I watch quite a bit of anime. Some recent favorites include Attack on Titan, Fate/Zero, Maoyuu Maou Yuusha, Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu, Log Horizon, Dangan Rompa, and Madoka Magica. Some older ones would include Slayers, Record of Lodoss War, etc.

Food: Pasta, chicken, steak, seasoned potatoes, gingersnaps, chocolate.
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I daydream frequently, but I also spend a lot of time thinking about more mundane concerns like work. I have a lot of long-term goals, and I frequently think about the most efficient ways I can go about pursuing those goals.

I spend a considerable bit of time thinking about how to develop stories, lore elements, etc. for my LARP and novels.

I also spend a tremendous amount of time thinking about how to improve on game systems - both for work and otherwise.
On a typical Friday night I am
If I'm not on overtime at work, I'm usually out LARPing. Or playing League of Legends. Or working on writing a book. Or working on designing a RPG system. Possibly hanging out with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I enjoy sleeping far more than I have any right to. If I didn't have a lot of work to do, I'd probably sleep 12 hours a day.
