Originally from LA, I moved up here to be closer to friends. I used to exclusively work in the nonprofit sector running awesome educational programs for kids. Now I work as an instructional designer for a large educational company . I'm happy that I get to do creative problem solving every day.
I love games; they make for an amazing constructive shared experience and I tend to geek out about them a lot. Sometimes they are engaging pieces of art from an emerging medium, other times blowing things up with friends is fun. Along with games I like the idea of helping people and making the world a better place, which is why I like to be on the non-profit side of things (or at least for now, continuing to work in education).
In general, geeky stuff kind-of defines my interests; before games I was a total theatre nerd and got my masters degree in Playwrighting. I've also done my fair share of world exploration.
I'm looking for a relationship:
"I don't want to set the world on fire, I just want to stay a flame in your heart"
I think dating is gross and honestly a bit rough because, like a true introvert I can be anxious when trying to meet new people. I really enjoy sharing a connection with someone but don't like starting and then abruptly stopping them.
I’d like to spend time with someone who is looking for a relationship, has shared geeky./nerdy interests and who wants someone that can be best described as a “partner in (or to fight) crime”.
I spend most of my time playing games (alone or with friends); trying to be entrepreneurial, and arguing with my adorable dog.

Friends and Family
A state of whimsy
Also instructions (blame work)
I tend to be much more serious than I make myself out to be. The world is a dark scary place that I'm unhappy with and while I try to work at making it a better place I use silliness as a survival mechanism.
I also have a pretty singing voice.
You're looking for someone to both go out, explore, and stay home with.
You like kindhearted bearded geeks
Your looking for a relationship.
You didn't just freak out over my not displaying knowledge of the difference between "you are" and "belonging to you."
You wish it was PAX.
You're forgiving of the fact that I can only write terrible introductory messages
You would like to play a game.
