A common word I've heard used to describe me is "diplomatic" as I tend to seek to find beneficial resolutions for all parties in conflicts. Personally, I just think I have a lot of empathy.
Also, I'm a gamer... Wait, don't leave yet! I'm not the guy who plays CoD all night, I just play a few hours when I have some spare time. It hasn't been so much lately, trying to do more with the free time I have.

2. A computer
3. My iPod (podcasts)
4. Caffeine (though not coffee, no offense intended)
5. Some sort of game for distraction
6. Good conversation. (I know, how cliche)
Also, I sometimes spend and unfair amount of time wondering what the people who read my profile think. I'm not super shallow, but I put a lot of time in it for you. Yes, you! What do you think?
Also, I have a periodic table of the elements wall-covering in my living room. Just saying.
I'm in it to meet people, so if anything you see about me makes you think anything more than asking "How you doin?", I'd be happy to hear...
