Things I love include live music, stimulating conversation, cooking, trying out new restaurants and beers, reading, and jamming with friends. When not enjoying solitude with my cats I alternate between going out with larger groups and creating shenanigans with a close friend or two. Honest, open-minded, endlessly curious, and passionate about helping others and respecting the environment.

In addition to my PC gaming I also play a lot of CAH with friends, and on console I dabble in Rocksmith (it's where you play with a real guitar) and I've been working through FFTA on an emulator on my phone.
I've been known to frequent Magic the Gathering, Settlers of Catan, Scrabble, Munchkin, Mariokart, and Just Dance - and I played many RTS and RPG games growing up.
Also I generally keep this active to meet people with common interests or whatever. I'm currently seeing someone, as my status indicates. I like talking science & music and the things forementioned.
