My self-summary
I'm a huge music buff, and spend most of my days looking for more music to listen to and/or analyze. This has led me to specific styles and combinations of genres that surprisingly have become my favorites. I also enjoy video games, though I also enjoy being adventurous in the outdoors, so don't hold gaming against me.

I love doing pretty much anything that I am introduced to, some notable examples being roller coasters, biking, watching bad movies, D&D, a select few anime, word games, and bowling.

Some of my friends have told me that I'm incredibly adaptable with people, which leads me to making lots of strong relationships. I also would call myself a little bit of a goofball, as I like doing things that I don't see most people do, such as jumping into large snow piles, make painfully obvious jokes with a huge "GET IT?!" expression, and finding the weirdest (yet entertaining) videos on YouTube.

I love watching hockey, and think it is the best sport in the world (I still like all of the other sports, though...other than golf). I'm a Red Wings fan from birth, but I'm transitioning to the Blackhawks...slowly.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently on the job hunt. I was recently laid off with CapitalOne after 3 years with the company, so it's been a little bit of a time of freedom for me. I'm hoping to either get a programming job or a game development job of some kind.

I'm also part of a Smash Bros for Wii U tournament organization and production company on the side, where I help create overlays (basically text over game image) to make the experience of streaming games more attractive.
I’m really good at
Making people happy and making friends. I make it my life's goal to always be fun to be around, and I love getting laughs out of people, even if the laughs come from corny puns or gags.

I'm also very good at adapting and picking up new things. I'm a fast learner, and anything I don't know, I make it a goal to learn at least the basics as quickly as possible.
The first things people usually notice about me
My ability to adapt to any person's personality and find a way to make friends with them. Also my winning smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
MUSIC: My go-to Pandora station is John Mayer, as I really like the kinds of music associated with him. Some other artists I'm in to include the Gorillaz, Muse, Jonathan Coulton, Parov Stelar, Morgan Page, Jake Kaufman, and plenty of media (film/game) composers.

BOOKS: Futuristic Violence and Fancy Suits, John Dies at the End, Game of Thrones, Prism Pentad series, and the Scott Pilgrim series. Also lots of assorted music books.

MOVIES: I love comedies mostly, and I enjoy horror/thriller films in theaters, but exclusively with a date. I like practically any movie I watch, though, including entertainingly bad movies like The Room. Some of my favorites include The Prestige, Mad Max, Children of Men, anything with Jackie Chan, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and Howl's Moving Castle.

SHOWS: As before, I tend to like comedies most on TV, but I also have a major soft spot for cartoons or goofy shows. My top 3 shows are the Avatar series, Psych, and Steven Universe. Other favorites include Gravity Falls, Misfits, 30 Rock, Brooklyn Nine Nine, HIMYM, Archer, Arrested Development, Robot Chicken, and Louie. I also watch YouTube quite a bit.

FOOD: Italian, burgers, Mexican...really anything, I'm not picky. Though I'm still learning how to cook food myself, for the most part.

GAMES (bonus category!): Undertale, Binding of Isaac, Overwatch, Bioshock Infinite, Team Fortress 2, Super Smash Bros, Portal, Bastion, Persona 4 (Golden).
The six things I could never do without

I spend a lot of time thinking about
What next to do with the day.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching RiffTrax with my friends, playing games, going to the movies, surfing the Internet, exploring Chicago, or listening to (or making my own) music. Also, streaming stand up comedies and movies on NetFlix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love making intentionally bad art when I'm bored on my computer. It started out as a joke, but it's super fun now.
You should message me if
You like talking about music, movies, or any other entertainment medium. They're some of my favorite topics to discuss, and I like analyzing pretty much anything given to me to talk about either way.
