My self-summary
Under construction. Check back soon.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an engineer working at a dream job: making the world a better place, great people, challenging. This job involves occasional travel and oncall work. I love it.

Beyond that, I rapidly shift between introvert staying at home tending to my nerdy hobbies or an extrovert organizing socials at my house or elsewhere. But even Superman has to retreat to his Fortess of Solitude occasionally.
I’m really good at
Putting others before myself.
Fixing things.
Breaking things.
Sleeping in.
Reaching the top shelf.
Public speaking.

I am not good at remembering names for people I just met, or noticing innuendo.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm a giant. I'm a bit rotund. Also, the beard. And now, the colorful hair.

Also, I am a huge geek. Also, a huge nerd. I like all the nerd things, and am not ashamed of them. I play video games, board games, and even NERDIER things if you can imagine. Tolerance, acceptance, or embrace of this culture is a pretty important part of getting along with me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like manly things. This is a requirement since I grew a beard.

But the beard is kind, and likes the following specific things: VNV Nation, spicy Indian food, bad movies, and books about programming puzzles.

I like music used in movies, trailers, and videos. You know that awesome music from the trailer for that cool movie? I probably own that. I like that stuff, plus EBM, Industrial, Rock, Alternative & classical music.

As direct answers go, I love the hell out of Doctor Who. I finally was convicted to watch House and enjoying that. As started watching West Wing from the start again to find myself near tears during the first Xmas episode.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Am I happy? Why [not]?
On a typical Friday night I am
Either being social at a small event with friends, traveling, or decompressing from the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a LARPer.
You should message me if
You are a woman who isn't dainty, enjoys life, and likes men. You should be able to embrace or enjoy geek culture pursuits, even if you are only on the edge of that culture yourself. I am knee deep in it, and don't want to be rescued from it.

I want someone who has their eyes on the future, with plans, career, and hope. And those plans and hopes ought to include starting a family.

You are awesome and wish to compare notes on being awesome. Note: you are awesome. I like talking with people with difference experiences or backgrounds and hearing their stories. Tell me your story and if you want to hear mine, I can spill.
