My self-summary
I'm in my late 20's, located on the Westside, and working in IT.

I like being weird. I chose Latin as my first language to study when I was younger because Spanish and French seemed too "normal", lol.

My music tastes are all over the place; I listen to a very eclectic mix of dubstep, Japanese glam metal, South African rap, neo-Celtic folk, and various other disparate sounds. I play saxophone, drums, harmonica, and I'm learning slowly to play the guitar and clarinet. I also produce electronic music as a hobby, which you can check out here if you're interested:

I'm also pretty nerdy--I like anime and manga, D&D, video games (though I'm not into shooters), and sci-fi and fantasy novels.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a BA in Linguistics from UCLA, but I have no idea what to do with it.

I work as an IT specialist focused on deploying and supporting small-scale corporate infrastructure.
I’m really good at
Getting along with people, cooking, reading, doodling...
The first things people usually notice about me
Used to be my long hair, not sure what it is now that I've cut it...aaaaand the long hair has grown back since I last edited this profile. So yeah, that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot of fantasy and sci-fi. I'm also a huge fan of cyberpunk, and I occasionally read other genres if a particular title catches my eye or is recommended by a friend. My favorite book of all time is Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein. I'm also a fan of the Wheel of Time series, by Robert Jordan, The Codex Alera and the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher, anything by Piers Anthony, the Sprawl Trilogy by William Gibson, Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson, Altered Carbon by Richard K. Morgan, Starfish by Peter Watts, the Temeraire series by Naomi Novik, and tons more that I'm too lazy to type right now.

My number 1 favorite movie of all time is "Secondhand Lions", and my most watched movie is probably "Ratatouille". I'm a big fan of old Disney movies, Pixar, and Dreamworks films. I've seen "Boondock Saints" and "Suicide Kings" at least a dozen times each. I also tend to enjoy indie films--my favorite horror movie is "The Signal" (closely followed by "The Babadook"), and my favorite time-travel movie is "Primer".

As far as music goes, my tastes are super eclectic. I've got music from Japan, Korea, France, Romania, Germany, Israel, Russia, all over the world, and in many different styles. I'm always interested in checking out new stuff, and I have an appreciation for a wide variety of sounds. Some of the bands I listen to include the Red Elvises, Random Ninjas, Guano Apes, Lube, Malice Mizer, Cherry Poppin Daddies, O-Zone, Garbage, Iron Maiden, Aura, Darude...

I don't eat a lot of junk food. I don't eat chocolate, caramel, or most kinds of candy. Feeding me dessert is a nightmare, just go with fruit, lol. On the other hand, I'm not too picky about real food; I like trying new foods and I'll eat almost anything you give me as long as it's not too sweet. The weirdest thing I've ever eaten was raw horse meat while in Japan. Even over there it's pretty rare, but I told my host mother I wanted to try food I'd never have a chance to eat in America, and she delivered :)
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order:

Books, my glasses, internet access, my friends, music, something to doodle with
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I want to do, learn, and accomplish during my life. How to make random things better--such as trying to think of one new ingredient to add to a recipe.
On a typical Friday night I am
Baked watching movies or shows w/ my gf and my cat.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've got a piercing in a surprising place.
You should message me if
You wanna hang out and get baked.
