I'm a completely unashamed nerd in a plethora of ways and I'm overall fairly happy with my life. I love computers and technology, theatre, books, video games, card games, intelligent political discourse, watching horrible B-movies, and eating all kinds of wonderful food.
I am not a native New Yorker, though I've lived here long enough to fake it sometimes. I'm still excited about finding secret gems in the inner city and I try to explore as many fun new places as I can!
I'm looking for people who share my hobbies, perhaps my intellectualism and love for all things electronic, and mostly just people who are good-spirited and like to hang out. I rather detest the idea of assembling large groups of people for any purpose that does not involve twenty-sided dice, theatrical performance, or Mortal Kombat ladder matches. I feel that small groups are the best groups and that any voice in a crowd larger than 8-10 is not being heard on its own merits well enough.
Besides work, I have a fairly broad range of hobbies including photography, painting, and games of every persuasion. I've also been spending a lot of time focused on getting healthier through a ketogenic diet and calisthenics program.
Movies: The Matrix, pretty much anything with Arnold Schwarzenegger, all of the Star Trek films (though I'm not overly fond of the reboot), Aliens, and probably lots more that would fill the page. I like action/sci-fi movies the best, but I like a good sprinkling of horror and suspense as well.
Shows: COSMOS, Breaking Bad, all things Star Trek, Supernatural, The Walking Dead.
Music: Anything Maynard James Keenan or Trent Reznor has ever done. Turn-of-the-millenium alternative (Korn, Disturbed, Green Day, Beastie Boys, etc.). Dubstep (guilty pleasure). Katy Perry (even guiltier pleasure). I'm pretty flexible though, so long as it's not country or gangsta rap.
Food: Ethnic dishes, particularly Indian, Mexican, or Chinese. Pretty much anything that isn't seafood (shrimp is acceptable). I have a love for "needless gluttony foods" as well, like bacon cheeseburgers or pizza covered in meat and cheeses.
