My self-summary
I'm a graduate in Computer Science, but I in no way regret getting a technical degree from a liberal arts school. Simply put, I love to learn, and I love to think. I find that the most engaging type of fiction is the type you have a part in creating, which is why I absolutely love tabletop roleplaying games, and am also a fan of pretty much any type of gaming there is, and just cannot read enough.

When talking about politics, I default to my ideals rather than pragmatism. I'm somebody who believes that achievable ideals lead to complacency once they are achieved. I'm perfectly happy holding ideals that may not be attainable and figuring out how to phrase them such that the closer you get to the ideal, the better the world is. If you can manage to rope me in and get me talking pragmatically, I'm still left-of-center by European standard, putting me firmly in "leftist nutjob" territory in the eyes of the US mainstream.

I am very happily in a polyamorous relationship, and while I am not particularly looking for another relationship, I am open to one if you are sufficiently awesome.

The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told that my eyes are quite nice, but that's just a silly appearance thing. Once people get to talking with me, they generally notice that I'm somebody who can be sarcastic and biting while still, at the end of the day, being kind. If you hit on something I'm even vaguely interested in, you'll almost certainly notice how passionate of a person I can be.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I took this down because it had the regrettable tastes of my younger self along with the non-regrettable tastes of my younger self. I will update this eventually.
Six things I could never do without
I suppose things like "food, water, shelter, oxygen" would be a bit too literal... in no particular order:
-My laptop
-Fairly regular internet access
-Friends I can rely on
-People doing things in the world that remind me that I'm not alone in wanting to improve it.
-The ability to occasionally do utterly random things just to entertain myself. Working as an usher at a concert venue a few years back, I went through an entire show talking to guests in a fake Scottish accent.
You should message me if
You don't mind the fact that I'm a complete and utter nerd who spends his days programming and his nights fighting crime  playing games, aren't a conservative ass-hat, and can hold a meaningful conversation instead of just filling time with small talk. Unless said small talk is about Smalltalk.
