Each and every day is an adventure. My life moves at a fairly high pace, and I'm constantly doing new things and meeting new people. Whether it's urban exploring, camping in the wilderness, or simply going for a run, there's always something happening.
Also, I travel a lot for both work and fun. In the past six months, I've visited San Francisco, Seattle, Boulder, London, Paris, Bangalore, Lima, parts of Germany, and probably some others that I've forgotten. It's been exciting.
Typically, I spend my free time with friends watching movies, playing games, and the like. I'm a huge board game geek, and I also love tabletop gaming.
If I were forced into a competition against Death itself, however, I would choose chess, most likely.
Lately though, I've been getting way more comments on my rather long hair. Part of me wants to cut it short again, but I really like the 'dude-with-long-hair' look. I think that I pull it off fairly well, and it makes me look like less of a tool when I wear bandanas (which is often).

Food - Anything, really. I love trying something new and interesting. If I had to pick three though, I'd take bacon, steak, and lobster. I am definitely a carnivore.
I find it kind of odd that there's no games section, so I'll create my own. I enjoy so many of them, ranging from all sorts of board games, tabletop, role-playing, video games, and generally anything at all:
General Games - Chess, Checkers, Dungeons and Dragons (3.0, 3.5, Pathfinder, 4.0), Call of Cthulhu, Settlers of Catan, Agricola, Power Grid, Risk, etc. Any game that requires heavy strategy or role-playing will be right up my alley.
Video Games - Bioshock, The World Ends With You, Castlevania, World of Warcraft, Starcraft, and many more! I prefer the in-depth RPG's with an amazing story and deep setting.
1. My computer, I suppose. It's for both work and play.
2. I do enjoy a nice glass of whiskey, now and then.
3. My phone, sadly. She and I have a love-hate relationship.
4. My eclectic music collection.
5. Games. Challenges. Competition.
6. The many pillows that adorn my bed. The fluffier, the better.
Bonus! I always sleep with an electric fan in the vicinity, both for the cool breeze and the background noise. Odd, eh?
I typically cosplay a few times a year, usually at Dragon-Con or other conventions, and some of my better costumes include a rugged adventurer, a steampunk gentleman, a crazed cultist, and a 'bro'. If I'm feeling particularly in a role-playing mood, I might even dress up for D&D and other such games.
