My self-summary
I'm a geek with a fierce sweet tooth, liver of steel, and a penchant for mischief.
What I’m doing with my life
Aside from the 10-6 daily grind, I try to spend the rest of my time rock climbing, baking, or absorbing pop culture. If you like working out, eating sweets, or watching movies and TV (I have to imagine that captures almost 100% of the world in one of those categories...), I think we'll get along.

Also, like nearly every other Bay Area person, I'm getting into the whole foodie thing. I've been trying to eat at all the Michelin rated restaurants in the area (gotta catch 'em all!).
I’m really good at
- Making people laugh (hopefully with me and not at me!)
- Drinking you under the table.
- Trivia (anyone up for bar trivia?)
- Handstand pushups
- Eating competitions
- DDR (I've got to list at least one embarrassing one, right?)
- I'm getting pretty decent at baking. Though my macarons still look a bit funny :(
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably that I'm staring off into space looking confused. I promise I'm thinking about something though...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Harry Potter series, Catch-22, Alice in Wonderland, Anything Michael Crichton or Stephen King, biographies of interesting people.

Games: Settlers of Catan, Dominion, Guillotine, Half-Life, TF2, Diddy Kong Racing, Zelda, Mario Kart, DK Country, Conker's Bad Fur Day, DDR.

Movies: Way too many to list. Pretty much anything on the IMDb top 250 list. I'm currently 146 movies through the list (104 to go! Progress has been slow lately...).

Top 5:
Shawshank Redemption
Silence of the Lambs
Pulp Fiction
Big Lebowski
Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

Music: I like classic rock. Think The Beatles, The Who, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan. Muse.

I also love a good classical piece - Scheherazade is probably my favorite song. (If you like the symphony, then we need to talk.)

Television: 30 Rock, Adventure Time, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Archer, Arrested Development, Community, Dexter, Modern Family, Outsourced, Parks and Recreation, Pushing Daisies, Robot Chicken, South Park, Weeds. Game of Thrones and Mad Men too.

Food: I'll try anything (within reason) once. I do miss Chicago-style pizza and hot dogs. I'm all over the place on this one: fancy dinners are bomb, but so are burritos in the Mission after a hard night's drinking.
The six things I could never do without
Aside from the obvious:
- Diet Cherry Coke (all the flavor, none of the calories!)
- White Russians (all the flavor AND all the calories)
- Access to a sauna
- A gym
- The internet
- Sugar. Did you know marshmallows are basically just corn syrup and sugar?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- How I can acquire a penguin as a pet (Because really, how cool would that be!?)

- When I should plan my next trip to Disneyland or Vegas (which do you think would be more fun?)

- Why I actually put thought into updating this...
On a typical Friday night I am
Lately it's been happy hour(s) in the city and whatever adventure ensues after the fact.

Usually either stuffing my face with some of my buddies and trying to find a dive bar.

After really long weeks, I sometimes enjoy taking a hot bath, cranking Sgt Pepper's, and sipping a glass of scotch or Guinness.

Ideally though... ADVENTURE TIME!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really didn't like Avatar.

On long days when I'm driving home from work, I turn on the radio and blast classical music. People give me weird looks, but I don't care.
You should message me if
You made it all the way through my profile and had some laughs along the way. If you can make me laugh!

You need someone to watch all the really long epic movies (e.g. Dr. Zhivago, Ben-Hur) with. You like rock climbing. You like the symphony.

If you like puzzles and think you can beat me in a jigsaw race or doing the crossword.

If you've been looking for someone to go out for ridiculously overpriced meals and your friends all think you're crazy.

Or just because.
