My self-summary
Nerdy: I've got a great group of friends I've known since high school or known through other high school friends that get together & play roleplaying games (like Dungeons & Dragons). We're close-knit but always welcome fresh mea...er...new blood.

Balanced: I'm as comfortable in the water as I am dressed to the nines. Plus I take a gym class that improves my balance!

Nuanced: I love to try new things, and though reserved, I won't hesitate to sing a song (or 5 if the line isn't long) at karaoke.

Fun-loving - Well, who isn't? But I enjoy roller coasters despite issues with heights (I'm just full of nuances, aren't I?), so I'm your guy if you ever want to visit one of the area amusement parks.

That's me in a nutshell, but none of us fit in a nutshell so we should really talk to crack the shell and go beyond it.
What I’m doing with my life
I currently work in Alexandria for a non-profit federation that helps trusted charities, such as St. Jude & Susan G. Komen, fundraise. The federation specializes in workplace giving, which would otherwise be an underutiluzed fundraising source.

I also work with the Prince William SPCA as a PAW Express Volunteer. We go to different events with a few dogs and cats that people can adopt right then and there. It's still great to see when a dog or cat does get adopted. The hardest thing about it is resisting the urge to adopt them all myself!
I’m really good at
Making a mean chicken/pork adobo (Filipino-style). I was complimented on the latter which I made for a potluck at work.

Having fun with my karaoke choices (There no feeling like it when everyone gets into "Never Gonna Give You Up")

Making groan-inducing puns. I'm like a dad-joke machine without even being a dad.
The first things people usually notice about me
Online, it would have to be my eyes were it not for the blinding glare from my glasses!

In person, my unwelcoming visage (colloquially known as RBF), which belies one of the kindest personalities you'll ever meet.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm big into comedy, and my tastes reflect that in books & movies. Not so much in television.

Books: Catch-22, Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, almost anything by Mark Twain.

Movies: Little Miss Sunshine, O Brother Where Art Thou, The Princess Bride, Monty Python & the Holy Grail just to name a few.

I'm also big on comic book movies and animation.

TV: Flash, iZombie, Suits, Sleepy Hollow, the Walking Dead, Doctor Who, & Bones just to name a few. I'm really liking the new Samantha Bee show Full Frontal as well.

Music: I'm more of a classic rock/oldies guy. However, I'll listen to anything from Tchaikovsky to Walk the Moon (I love their pseudo-80's music video for "Shut Up & Dance").

Food: What isn't my favorite? I can't choose a particular style, but I can say I love spicy foods, especially if it's well complemented with other flavors.
The six things I could never do without
Friends, family, water, & food are kind of obvious I think, so barring that...

1. Experiencing movies in a theater
2. My GPS
3. My Phone
4. My movie collection
5. A good pair of hiking boots
6. A real book with a cover & pages
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where my first international solo trip will be, or how I can make it a not-so-solo trip.

Whether or not "What's your Myers-Briggs personality type?"has become the new "What's your sign?"
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends on the week. I could be going out to karaoke, playing board games, watching a movie, or taking it easy & watching TV.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Most seem to skip this or reveal something unexpected. I'm going to take this opportunity to be open & honest: To help my dad take care of my grandmother, I do live with both of them.
You should message me if
You're compassionate, sincere, and share in the same spirit of generosity. And if you don't mind the stereotype of the nerdy guy living out of his parents' basement!
