My self-summary
Feminist. Socialist. Satanist.

If you're not scared away yet, feel free to read on. Better yet, if any of these things excite or interest you, message away!

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.
What I’m doing with my life
Telecommunications engineering is my profession. Yes, they're big words. I use those a lot. If you really care about the details, just ask!

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.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh. I am likely one of the most sarcastic people you will ever know, but I also know when to shut up and listen. I like to tell stories, and I'm very good at improvisational acting and comedy. At least I tell myself that, anyway.
The first things people usually notice about me
Correct spelling and punctuation? If you mean what is most noticeable about me in person, however, I'm told that I look like a fat Kit Harrington when my hair is longer.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Mostly fantasy novels, particularly the Drizzt novels by R.A. Salvatore and Dan Abnett's Eisenhorn (Warhammer 40K). I'm also fond of the classic works of Poe and Shakespeare as well as some of H.P. Lovecraft's work.

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.
The six things I could never do without
With the obvious exception of biological requirements...

The Internet
Electricity
Delicious food
Friends
My cat
Laughter
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Psychology, metaphysics, and the wonders of unknown space. I am an astronomy nerd and a computer geek and when I'm not entertaining thoughts of campaigns I want to run, I'm planning my next technological experiment.
On a typical Friday night I am
Getting home from work around midnight and playing video games with my friends online. On the weekends, I usually go out and hang with my friends, play some games, maybe do a little painting or model-building. I'd like to get back into D&D/Pathfinder again but getting a group together is hard these days.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I listen to Katy Perry while I do dishes or other housework. I am not ashamed.
