My self-summary
I'm a nerdy guy who enjoys a lot of things. I like hiking, camping, video games, board games, fencing, scuba diving, all kinds of stuff. I'm working in Madison and looking into Grad School.

I'm not sure what else to say here. My sense of humor runs more towards sarcasm, which never leads to miscommunication when written down. Some how it's not coming through here, though.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm slowly moving up the corporate ladder but still plan to go to Grad School and am taking the time till then to figure out what I want my advanced degree to be in. I'm torn between politics, history and journalism.
I’m really good at
I've always been good at reading and remembering things. Obscure facts and statistics, that sort of thing. I'm also told I'm pretty funny, though not when I'm trying to be. That may have been intended as an insult.

My regular hobbies include fencing and Scuba diving. I'm a nationally ranked fencer.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height. I'm quite tall.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I prefer fiction to nonfiction. I currently am working through Game of Thrones and enjoying it very much. I think I'll have to list authors instead of titles. Patrick Rothfuss, Timothy Zahn, Arthur C. Clarke, Conan Doyle, Robert Howard, Tolkien, Jim Butcher.

Movies: I really enjoy movies, my favorites are the original Star Wars Trilogy, Blade Runner, Kurosawa films, Wit, there's a lot. It's quite difficult to pick a favorite. More recently, I've really liked Fury Road and Arrival. I was pretty happy with Logan too.

Shows: The best TV show ever produced is The Wire. For past shows, I really liked MASH, Arrested Development, Firefly, Lost and Battlestar Galactica.

Music: Rock, electronic, classical.

Food: I love food. I really like sushi, steak, and Italian cuisine, but I just enjoy eating good food. I avoid fast food as a general rule.
Six things I could never do without
1. Good food. I don't mean this in a smartass "everyone needs food to live" sort of way, I mean there are few things in life I value as much as a really enjoyable meal.
2. Friends and family. I like having people to talk to and bounce ideas off of.
3. Someone to talk to. I like conversation.
4. Exercise. I'm not a big health nut or anything, but when I skip what I do, I feel off and out of sorts.
5. A homebase. Whether it's my home or a hotel room when I'm traveling, I like knowing there's a place to go back to. For me, the most stressful part of travel is when you don't have a room yet. As soon as I check in and put my bags down, it becomes a lot more fun.
6. My computer. Didn't want to put this one and I have gone without it for weeks, but it's so useful and fun, I can't imagine not having a computer for the rest of my life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with a few friends drinking and talking
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I talk to my cat and I think he understands more than he lets on.
You should message me if
You like a lot of what you see here, but not one or two things. I'm guilty of this too, letting the perfect become the enemy of the good.
