My self-summary
Hi, my name is Zach. I'm originally from Tucson, Arizona. I'm stationed in Seattle, and I've been falling in love with this city. I want to explore all the restaurants, the shops, the little hole-in-the-walls. Yes, all of them.

What I’m doing with my life
I'm an enlisted in the Coast Guard, most likely looking to go career. I've been stationed on a polar ice breaker out of Seattle, and now I'm at a full time land billet doing search and rescue for the greater Puget Sound area. Made two patrols down to Antarctica, with stops in Honolulu, Tahiti, and Sydney.
I’m really good at
Piano (primarily improv, but I'm classically trained), jazz trumpet, singing (baritone range), and writing (when I have time). I also enjoy board games, and I've done both pen and paper RPGs and more informal RP as well. Finding themes and tropes in works of art (literature, music, video games, movies). Conversation!
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm assertive and I know what I like, apparently.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I own a ridiculous number of books, primarily science fiction and fantasy. Authors that jump out: Robert Heinlein, Mercedes Lackey, Anne McCaffrey, Terry Pratchet (highly recommended), and David Weber. Brandon Sanderson is probably my current favorite. Also, I am always on the hunt for new authors in my preferred genres so feel free to suggest one or two to me *grins*.
Movies: Mostly action, with a weakness for Kung Fu. I *will* watch other things, but usually at someone else's instigation. That being said, I have a weakness for "The Princess Bride" like you wouldn't believe.
Shows: I watch a great deal of Anime, ranging from Trigun to Wolf's Rain to Clannad. Also Firefly (of course) and Castle. Burn Notice is also awesome.
Food: As long as it's not terribly spicy, and it isn't boat food, I'll probably be onboard.
The six things I could never do without
My computer
My family
My cat
My friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Honestly? How other people view me.
I also try to be as rational as I can about things. At the moment I'm spending a lot of time thinking about what morality actually *is* and how I can be a better human.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either standing watch, unwinding after a long week, or being social with my friends and/or family. I've also been known to play a computer game or two, or go to a local board game store and try something new.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an open book. If you're curious about something and think you're being too forward by asking—you're not! Go ahead and ask anything. Sex questions are okay, too; I'm confident with myself and comfortable with the subject. There's not much I wouldn't be willing to answer.
You should message me if
You want to hear more about anything on my profile, or something catches your eye, or you convince yourself that I'm cute . . . really just message me.
