My self-summary
I'm originally from Michigan, moved to Houston late Sept '10, for a job, and to Austin in late '11.

I'm a software engineer and spend much of my time trying to improve upon my craft. I strive to have my software be as good as it can be.

I just started practicing Krav Maga.

I like to go out and drink on occasion. I mostly drink cocktails, Hard Cider, and Mead.

I love science fiction and fantasy, in fact my screen name xenterracide comes from my love of StarCraft and Aliens vs Predator when I was 16.

I love gaming, all kinds of games. When I lived in Michigan, and we had company, my family and I would sit around playing Euchre for hours. In high school I was part of the chess team (I know I'm a huge nerd, sorry ) unfortunately I don't play much chess anymore. I prefer to play games with friends and have enjoyed every kind of game from tabletop RPG, monopoly, jenga, to drinking games such as kings cup. I also enjoy video games of the RPG, RTS, and Shooter variety.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a Software Engineer
I’m really good at
computers and technology, and just about anything I put my mind to. I'm a problem solver (except my own personal issues).
The first things people usually notice about me
My freckles, or blue eyes. My eyes do get mentioned a lot (by girls I've dated), I think my freckles don't always pop.

That I look better than my pictures, I'm not very photogenic.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My food favorites are Pizza, Steak, Ribs, and Sushi; but honestly I love a lot of diversity, these are just my top 3. I can't think of a type of cuisine where I can't find something to eat.

My music tastes are basically Hard Rock, European Folk Metal, American Pop (female singers), I'm trying to get more into foreign music.

I love going to see movies, though I don't catch everything. I'm mostly and Action, Science Fiction, Fantasy kind of person. I enjoy comedies with other people sometime when hanging out. Here's a short list of favorites: Fight Club, Terminator, Aliens, Predator, the Matrix, Lord of the Rings, Highlander, Pan's Labyrinth, Iron Man, Xmen, Star Wars, Jurassic Park.

I love reading books, sci fi, fantasy, supernatural, horror, and the classics, as well as technical books. Michael Crichton was my favorite author, and I own almost all his books, RIP. I've read several books on the classics shelf, including Lord of the Rings, Frankenstein, Dracula, Picture of Dorian Gray, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, The Count of Monte Cristo, Ivanhoe, and more.

When I watch tv, it's online. Right now the shows I watch are: Supernatural, True Blood, V, The Daily Show, and Ugly Americans. In the past the Various Stargate's, The X-Files, Babylon 5, the new Battlestar Galactica, That 70s show, and Lost were on my must watch list, probably others too. Grimm, Fringe, Dexter, Game of Thrones, Vikings have been added.
The six things I could never do without
Technology, entertainment, transportation, hot food, sex, good friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
technology and software design. So basically I spend a lot of time thinking about work and how I could be better at my job (I need to spend less time doing this).
On a typical Friday night I am
at home, working on a project, or watching a movie. I like to go out and party sometimes though. I haven't the tolerance for doing it every weekend though.
You should message me if
I'm here to meet people, as I'm still pretty new to Austin. Message me if you might like to meet at some point in the future. I'm not looking for anything serious at this time, but if it should happen, so be it.
