My self-summary
From My Facebook Profile:
I like Computers, Movies, Reading, Writing, Video Games, Politics.

Allow me to expand on that a little. Computers are an essential part of my life, both for work and recreation. Movies are also a huge interest, and I'll watch virtually anything, but I have a penchant for horror. I have a somewhat encyclopaedic knowledge of actors and films, but I couldn't hold a candle to the movie geek from "Beat the Geeks."

I'm an avid reader, capable of reading up to 3 or 4 books a week depending on how the mood strikes me and what's available. Some current favourites include the Logan Trilogy, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and the Sword of Truth series. Favorite authors include David Eddings, Terry Goodkind, Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett, William Gibson and Clive Barker.

I enjoy writing from time to time, although I rarely complete anything. I've been in NaNoWriMo for the last 4 years and have yet to complete it. One of these years it'll get finished. I have tons of ideas for stories I'd love to write.

I really enjoy video games. I'm mostly into more casual, puzzle-based games at the moment, but I enjoy some good action and RPG games. My favourite genre is probably the old-school point and click adventure games (think Sierra or LucasArts). I don't do much console gaming anymore, but I love portable gaming and would be lost without my DS and PSP.

And finally, yes I enjoy politics. No I probably don't want to have a debate with you. For those who care to know, I'm a leftie.

I am geeky, opinionated, and funny
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in the midst of building my own business in the insurance field, as well as doing that odd bit of freelance graphic design here and there. As well, there are machinations of indie video game design brewing, and I have a studio in the creation stages at the moment.
I’m really good at
Most things related to computers. I'm also really good at talking to people, and I'm an incredible listener. I tell some pretty good jokes, but I sometimes run the risk of offending people because like George Carlin, I believe you can and should make fun of everything. No subject is taboo as far as I'm concerned.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well, the first thing people probably notice is that I'm a bigger guy. But after that, it's probably my eyes. I've been told they're exotic, whatever that means. It sounds cool though, so I'm going to go with it. ;)

Six things I could never do without
Cell phone
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Ideas for stories or video games, or trying to understand why people do things that make no sense to me. The mysteries of the universe are another topic that occupy my brainspace from time to time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with some friends either having coffee or going to the movies.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The instant I admitted it here, it would cease to be private and would immediately nullify the point of the question.
You should message me if
You're intelligent, are easy going, and have a good sense of humour.
