My self-summary
I'm a geek. I like to play harder than I work. I'm an introvert who loves make sure others have a good time.
What I’m doing with my life
My personal mission statement is "Have as much fun as possible before you die, but leave the planet a little better than you found it." To pay the bills, I make complicated pieces of software work. For fun, I help run sci-fi conventions, work on designing card games, and hike.
I’m really good at
Trivia in general. Reading. Teaching. Hiking. Drinking. Tax theory. Computers/Networking. First-person shooters. Logic. Visual design (except for color).
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm incredibly silly, so the first thing someone notices about me is a silly hat or a quirky mannerism.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Gaiman, Heinlein, Dresden Files, biographies and histories, scifi in general.
Movies: Almost Famous, Aliens, Inception.
Shows: Firefly, Homicide: Life on the Streets, Rome, Game of Thrones, Batman: The Animated Series, Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, Deadwood, Doctor Who, Castle, Leverage, Newsroom, The West Wing, Sherlock.
Music: VNV Nation, Bruce Springsteen, The Decemberists, Nubuo Uematsu, Dire Straits, Gnarls Barkley, Leonard Cohen. In short, pretty eclectic.
Food: Pizza, tacos, my own vegetarian chili, spinach salads, rum.
The six things I could never do without
Love, adorable corgis, my tablet, my Bag of Holding, Marvel comics, and pants. Because otherwise I'd be arrested.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Politics. Philosophy. Stumpy dogs. Game design. Practical starship design.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing board games with friends, watching a burlesque show, going for a long walk.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am entirely an open book. I'm willing to admit to anything.
I like stuffed animals. I play video games - even ones supposedly meant for bored housewives. I get crushes on married friends. I read schlocky science fiction. I sang Dire Straits songs to my corgi. Take your pick.
