I know that labelling is all the rage these days, but I'm a rather simple person that way. Straight, White, Male. Fantasy writer of unknown repute.
Politically I consider myself to be a member of the "Don't be an ass" party. Both Liberals and Conservatives have their share of good ideas and terrible ones.
I'm very in-tune with world events. And try to stay on top of things as much as I can. I donate regularly to worthy charities and am very much aware of just how good we have it here in the west.
I'm an army guy, with a passion for History, Science, Literature and Horror Movies.
I could go on and on about any and all of those topics, but in the interest of saving your time and getting to the point, I shall not.
Though by all means, I will if you ask.
It makes the concept of long term dating difficult. But I don't mean to turn anyone off by saying that, just please understand that things may be long distance now and then. I love my job, and strive to find some level of balance between work and personal life. Though that's easier said than done at times.

Music - Metal. Swedish Power Metal and Thrash Metal To the style of Blind Guardian or Dethklok. Also some Techno/Trance/Hardstyle. Not ashamed to admit I have a thing for Lindsey Stirling too!
Food - I like (actual) Asian cuisine (not the takeout stuff). Ramen noodles with spices, Sushi or Teppanyaki.
I try to keep a balanced diet. Honestly there is no vegetable or fruit I would not at least attempt to eat. I like the classic ick foods like Broccoli or Beets. Greek or French inspired soups are really good too!
That said, not a big fan of Provolone cheese. Blech.
Movies - Lots of horror movies. Summer blockbusters are a hit-or-miss. Generally I would rather sit and watch a very long movie with an extensive plot and deep characters (Spent a sick day watching the Lord of the Rings trilogy) as opposed to a bland, boring and uninspired CGI heavy cliche-fest.
Recently got into Vikings, now I can't escape it. Halp!
Not really a movie, but Foamy the Squirrel is awesome too!

People who don't have all the answers
I was TIME magazine's person of the year back in 2006
I'm slowly coming around to liking kids. I've been indifferent/mildly annoyed by them for most of my life. But over the past little while I've become a little bit more open. It's a work in progress, right now I'm trying to clean up my language a bit whenever they're around.
You're genuine, friendly and okay with the fact that I might take a little while to truly open up to you.
You wear glasses.
