My self-summary
I'm a geek, a father, and a husband.

My wife and I have an open relationship, though I'm not looking for a booty call, just new friends that might go somewhere more if we click.

I love reading, writing, gaming and while I am not be any means a "party guy", I do enjoy punctuating the general sobriety of life with the occasional night of debauchery among friends. Like any good nerd, I also love games of just about any sort, be it a group board game, evening-long Dungeons and Dragons with friends, or videogames of most any sort.
What I’m doing with my life
Leaving to move back to the mainland in May. I shall be bouncing around the PA/MD/DC area looking for and catching up with people, likely while not having any particular place to call home until I find work and a get a place for my family to move to.

Since I'll be doing this by myself, I'm likely to have a good bit of leeway as far as traveling and meeting people goes for the next few months.
I’m really good at
Talking to people, understanding problems, picking the right music for the moment, photography, meeting new people, and being sarcastic. Also laughing, as there are very few (if any) things that I won't find amusing, regardless of how ill-timed or inappropriate they may be.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm a big guy. Currently, my hair tends to stand out, on account of it being long down the middle like the world's worst mohawk (as I don't stick it up). People tend to get along with me fairly well very quickly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Authors (because picking individual books is too hard): Neal Stephenson, David Mitchell, Max Barry, Haruki Murakami, Chuck Palahniuk, Neil Gaiman, Steven Erickson, Brandon Sanderson, Robert Jordan, Patrick Rothfuss

Movies: Alien, Aliens, Die Hard, Primer, Willow, Fight Club, Last Life in the Universe, My Neighbor Totoro, Ghostbusters, The Thing (80s, not 2011), Midnight in Paris, Drive, the first 3 Indiana Jones, Matrix trilogy and so on. I am a huge fan of movies generally speaking and will happily watch and discuss them.

Music: Placebo, Juno Reactor, Autechre, Infected Mushroom, Shpongle, Keane, The Mars Volta, Nine Inch Nails, Tool, A Perfect Circle, Nightwish, Mira, Love Spirals Downwards, Portishead, Sneaker Pimps, Fiona Apple, Massive Attack, Muse, Lustmord and plenty more. I've also been on a 90's "alternative" kick lately, thanks to the accessibility of music on Pandora.

TV: Seinfeld, Six Feet Under, Freaks and Geeks, Undeclared, The West Wing, The Wire, old school Simpsons, South Park, and probably some others are my favorites. I've been losing interest in a lot of ongoing shows I used to watch, but there's still probably a dozen or so that grab my interest every season (currently watching Misfits, which is everything Heroes should have been)

Foods: Italian, Thai, Mexican, Indian, pretty much anything with a good heat to it. I am very partial to giant burritos.

Games: (I don't like the lack of this category here, it's 2012, time to get some recognition as a legitimate hobby) I've owned all three current consoles at one point or another, but currently I just play games on the PC. I'm also quite fond of board games, though too cheap to buy any of the really expensive ones. I also have a lifelong love of table-top gaming (Dungeons and Dragons, Shadowrun, Call of Cthulhu, etc).
Six things I could never do without
1. My family.
2. My friends (many of whom tragically live very far away, though modern technology alleviates this somewhat).
3. Books! Though really, I mean my iPad given how many books I have on it.
4. The fan that keeps me cool in bed even on the hottest days.
5. The Internet, window to the heartwarming and horrifying and everything in between. I'm not sure what I'd do without it, aside from likely being more productive.
6. The occasional drive in a car, by myself, to no place in particular. There's a feeling there that I just can't get anywhere else of a very specific kind of peace.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Simple solutions to complex problems, most of which would never really work because the people who could implement those solutions don't look at the situation the same way I do, and I lack the academic or social qualifications to get their ear.

Also, whatever comes to mind. I've majored or almost majored in many subjects at this point, all of which have contributed to a crowded mind. But sometimes, I like to think of nothing at all and that is quite nice.
On a typical Friday night I am
Chillin' with my awesome wife doing what we do best. But if you've got a better idea...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not a particularily private person...if there's something you need to know, just ask.
You should message me if
You find something worth messaging me about. I promise to discuss it with you at length and maybe we'll hit it off. Also, I have absolutely zero interest in high-maintenance people. I like someone who has their own thing going on and expects me to as well.
The two of us
