My self-summary
I'm updating my profile for the first time in nearly 10 years, so: bare with me for a bit.

Nothing makes me doubt a person's sense of humor like a completely straightforward claim to have a sense of humor. And listing off every single artist/hobby/food/etc that I enjoy will lead to a block a text I don't think anyone wants to read... So rather than tell you everything I am and do: I'll write out the first few sentences that come to mind. If anything sounds incomplete, then we can fill out the gaps with an actual human conversation. :)

BTW: The photos and essays are new, but my "questions" are still culled from 10 years of bored weeknights on the internet. I'm updating them, yes, but if any of my questions sound "questionable", keep in mind that I've changed and grown a lot in the last decade.

I mean, I just saw an answer in there saying it's mandatory that my match does not like dogs. What the hell, me-from-2004? Dogs are awesome.
What I’m doing with my life
Settling into a new job after ditching the tech-world to help-out my family during a nasty health scare.

The crisis is over now, so I'm having fun in downtown San Jose, hosting meetups in the South Bay, or exploring the Bay-at-Large at the mercy of my new and awesome circle of friends.
I’m really good at
Dancing too much. Then: singing too loud while I dance too much. Then: Sleeping in bed because my voice is dead now and my limbs don't work.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hiccup.

Not hiccups. Hiccup. One. Singular. It strikes without warning and leaves just the same. I barely hear it anymore but it scares the daylights out of my friends.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
BOOKS: Max Barry novels, EmiTown, Don Norman's Design of Everyday Things

MOVIES: LA Story, Real Genius, Superhero movies (good or terrible), Anything with a RiffTrax behind it

SHOWS: Agents of SHIELD, Once Upon a Time, Community, Deep Space Nine, Angel and the rest of the Whedonverse.

MUSIC: Steve Poltz, Rhett Miller and Old 97's, Bootie Mashup, anything in Roger Niner's songbook.

FOOD: Take any food. Wrap it in freshly baked naan. You are now holding my favorite food. Please hand it over.
Six things I could never do without
-) An iPod, or some other way to keep my music around.
-) Feet, and enough elbow room to use those feet to dance.
-) Friends who accept my silliness and counter it with their own.
-) Cold rainy nights wrapped in a cozy blanket.
-) A whiteboard, a notepad... something to store my crazy ideas.
-) Literally any food wrapped in warm fresh naan. I'm serious.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The Design of Everyday Things. The little bits and pieces of stuff we use in our day-to-day life, and all the care and engineering that went into making them work.

This usually translates into me staring in awe at some random pen, or cursing the designers responsible for whatever doors, parking garages, etc that confused me earlier afternoon.
On a typical Friday night I am
Checking the listings for a good movie, polling around to see who's available, then (after much deliberation) firing up Rock Band or Hulu and staying in.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't think I'm pretty.

I think I'm a complete badass. I'm lovable, strong and awesome, that's clear. And I'm _so_ much better off since I started taking care of myself. But pretty? Me? Not so much.

Not yet.
You should message me if
If anything at all on this page made you smirk: Go for it.

And if you could maybe extend that smirk into something more than a one-line copypasta, so maybe I can reply to you and we'll actually hold a conversation? That'd be brilliant.

(This is pretty much what my sense of humor is like. For better or for worse: there's more where that came from.)
The two of us
