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.
That I look better than my pictures, I'm not very photogenic.
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 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.
