My self-summary
Basically, I'm a guy that's getting it together. I'm working full-time for a local company and getting all the certifications I can grab, but I've got some slightly more ambitious plans on the back burner for this year. Generally I'm a pretty low-key guy, and I have a heavy sarcastic streak in my humor. I'm a nerd too: I've always been a gamer, a comic book fan, plus I'm a sucker for old 80s cartoons, and I will probably stay that way for a while.
What I’m doing with my life
Working full-time as an equipment technician and general freight/counter help for a local business. Outside of that, just trying to stay occupied; whether that's a random trivia night, a Monarchs game, Turtles IV on the Super Nintendo with friends, or grilling (holy shit, do I like grilling). I'm also stumbling into more of the local Chiver community, so a few more of those events are popping up on my radar.
I’m really good at
Showing up with a six-pack everytime, ridiculous hamburger ideas, making people laugh, Super Mario Bros 3, and making movie references.
The first things people usually notice about me
My beard sticks out like a sore thumb: it's bright red, despite the rest of my hair being naturally brown.

I know, I know. I don't get it either.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books? Nic Kelman's "Video Game Art", most of Michael Crichton's library, my college Art History textbook, and this one Japanese book I have about the old Transformers.

Movies? I'm into comedies, comic movies, sci-fi stuff, and movies that are so bad it's hilarious. Some of my all-time favorites are The Jerk, Jurassic Park, Tropic Thunder, Guardians of the Galaxy, Zombieland, Army of Darkness, the original Spider-Man, Shaun of the Dead, all of the Transformers films (even the old school animated one from the 80s), and Iron Man.

I'm using the powers of Netflix to rewatch the American version of The Office, Arrested Development, The IT Crowd, and Burn Notice. I also thoroughly enjoyed Harvey Birdman: Attorney At Law, Robot Chicken, and How I Met Your Mother. Random trivia factoid: I have the Super Mario Bros Super Show on DVD...I'm still not sure why though.

My music tastes jump around a lot, but lately I've been splashing a lot more alternative into the mix (I recently started dabbling with Frank Turner and Kasabian). Normally, you'll find me listening to Silverstein, Say Anything, Zox, Social Distortion, Placebo, Black Lab, Butch Walker, Green Day or Test Your Reflex, Metallica, ZZ Top, Black Lab, Placebo, or Pearl Jam. I staunchly believe everybody should listen to "Make Yourself" by Incubus at least once, and I consider "Tragic Kingdom" by No Doubt the first album that really spoke to me. To get this out of the way though, I'm not a Beatles fan. Or an Elvis fan. Or a Zeppelin fan. Or a Hendrix fan. Or a Nirvana fan. Listen, I get that they changed the medium, and I certainly respect their contributions, but I'm just over hearing them.

Still there? o_O

My favorite foods are pizza, eel sushi, and pineapple. I think that about wraps it up.
Six things I could never do without
Music, blank paper to sketch and doodle on, my Super Nintendo, cheap frozen pizzas, cold beer, and time to spend in front of a grill.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I'm going to wind up. I've never really picked a direction before now, and just kinda drifted from one phase of my life to the next. I'm curious to see if having some more drive is going to make things smoother for me, or if I'm destined to wind up somewhere entirely different.

Also robots, and how I can expand the acronym for my official title at work to C.A.S.S.E.T.T.E.
On a typical Friday night I am
...usually hustling my roommates, trying to get them to come out with me. I'm still in the process of feeling out the area, and trying to establish a home bar. It's a little intimidating going alone some nights, but I'm working on making that happen more.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have no idea who the other guy in that karaoke photo is.
You should message me if
You're looking for new people. I'm not looking to jump into anything immediately (not that I'm ruling it out), but I'm trying to meet people and get back on track. I get along with pretty much everybody, so feel free to drop me a line and say hi.
The two of us
