My self-summary
To be brief, I love life. I'm happy to be here.

Ok ok, let me be a bit more descriptive.

To start, I am a quintessential nerd. I love computers, video games, anime, RPGs, and all the other classic trappings of the nerd culture. Yes, I play Dungeons & Dragons as well as Magic the Gathering. I'm even designing a roleplaying system of my own.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about so far, I might not be what you're looking for.

Let me take a moment and clear up a few unfortunate stereotypes about nerds.

I do not live in my mother's basement. I bathe daily. I workout regularly. I have a job. I'm also not too shabby of a cook, if I do say so myself.

As for why I'm here; I joined OkCupid at my sister's behest. Both of my sisters have had success here and I'm not the type of person to go to a bar or club. I'm also looking for the type of girl who shares at least some of my nerd-osity, or at the very least, is curious about it.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a creator at my core. Everything I get great joy from has some form of creative component.

I make video games. I just moved out to Austin Texas to join a small indie gamedev team and it's pretty much the best thing ever.

Oh, and I'm also a published Author! Woo!

If you like YA fantasy, go buy my book!

I’m really good at
Game design!

I'm also pretty dandy as a writer, at least I like to think so.

I used to regularly update my writing blog here:

http://bigdaddysnailcakes.tumblr.com

But I've been absolutely derelict in that duty as of late. I do love to write, but I've been far too busy making games in recent years.

I truly excel at game design. I'm actually a game designer hobbyist, and I'm in the process of breaking into the game industry (No small feat, mind you).

I have a great passion for the construction of the mechanical systems of games, both electronic and table-top.

Update: I've succeeded! I'm officially a game developer!

I'm also making huge progress in learning actual programming in additional to game design. So it's pretty darn exciting.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have long hair. It might be odd for a guy but I love it and I'll have long hair for my entire life.

I'm also super shy about being photographed. I'm not worried that it's going to steal my soul or anything, but I just can't seen to figure out how the whole process works.

Although my most recent batch of pictures are, if it's not too narcissistic for me to say so, kinda... good?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: His Dark Materials, A Song of Ice and Fire... I know there are more for this list but they've flown from my brain at the moment.

Movies:The Matrix, LOTR, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Just about everything by Pixar, Revolver, Tank Girl (If you know what Tank Girl is, you get many bonus points), this list will go on and on but I'll leave it here for now.

TV: Dexter (Update on Dexter. This show started out good, but holy crap... that ending was so bad I can't even recommend it anymore!), Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Disney's Gargoyles, Avatar: The Last Airbender & Korra, I've been meaning to start watching The Walking Dead but I haven't gotten to it yet. (Update on the Walking Dead: Hated it. Let's argue about why.)

Anime: I like a lot of anime, if you do as well we can geek out over it. I have many recommendations.

Video Games: Disgaea (If you know what this is, I might be in love), Devil May Cry, Bayonetta, Darksiders, The older Final Fantasy games, Most Mario and Zelda games, Terraria (Let's build stuff together!) the older Sonic games, umm... this list will go on a long long way... if you're into to gaming, we'll talk at length.

Food: I like a lot of oriental food and as such I tend to make a lot of stir-fry type stuff. I'm wanting to broaden my horizons in the field of cooking though so suggestions are welcome.

Music: Mostly Rock and Metal, but I also quite enjoy classical, techno, some pop and a smattering of other things. I don't much care for Rap or Country.

Techno-Swing is also unbelievably awesome: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E6blJDI3LJA
The six things I could never do without
Computers/Internet
Video Games
Writing
Roleplaying
Anime / Cartoons
Humor
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Creating interesting worlds. I both do a lot of writing as well as creative design for Roleplaying Games.

Oh, I also frequently contemplate the absurdity that is the size of the star VY Canis Majoris. It's just so big! How can a thing even be that big?

How!?

Seriously, look it up and we can be astonished together.
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday? Hmmm... Friday is a toss-up. Sometimes it's good ole' fashion D&D, and sometimes it's binge-watching cartoons.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a stuffed sheep named Barnabus. He's very persnickety and I love him.
You should message me if
You're a nerd, a geek, or some other manner of awesome involving anime, video games, computers, or roleplaying games.

Also, and this is becoming more and more a thing I'm looking for, if you're wiling to chatter on in silly accents with me. I kinda collect accents and I'm just jonesing for someone to indulge my oddity.

Did I spell Jonseing right? Do people still say that? Crap... I'm not sure. Well, you get the idea, right?

Send me a message and let's be weird at each other.
