|My SOULGEEK Self:||
I HATE writing bios about myself, feels odd. But, here goes... I'm a single father of three wee beautiful girls, a defense contractor by day (pays the bills) and an author/tabletop RPG developer by night (feeds the soul) who loves ren faires, tabletop gaming, science fiction, fantasy, urban fantasy, and on and on. I prefer tabletop RPGs for the face-to-face interaction with friends, but I have racked up waaaay too many hours in Skyrim, Fallout 4, Secret World, EQII, and so on to be considered normal by any stretch of the imagination :D
Unfortunately, my day job is full of Tier One types and thus I've spent years keeping my geek hidden, but since I am moving out of the field into becoming an instructor I decided to hell with it, the geek is coming out of the closet.
Other stuff... well, since a lot of people here do the personality test thing, I charted out as type ENFP-A (The Campaigner), if that matters. Due to custody arrangements (I have custody, my ex has visitation) I cannot relocate from Texas anytime soon, apologies.
|The SoulGeek I'm Looking For:||
I am looking for someone whose crazy matches my crazy, someone who shares at least some of my interests and wants to be a part of my life in all it's geeky glory, a lass who'll kick my ass at Halo or drive me nuts as a DM with her antics tabletopping, who'll drag me into helping her do last-minute work on a cosplay for a convention and who's not afraid to speak her mind. Family is important to me, so understand that my girls come first, but I have plenty of room in my heart to share with another :-)
I don’t really care about age, I worry more about personality compatibility. I’m easy-going and laid back for the most part, thick-skinned and hard to offend, so feel free to be blunt :-D
|Ideally, if I could be any character from the worlds of Sc-Fi, Horror & Fantasy I would be:||
|But I'm probably more like:||
Harry Dresden, complete with the Murphyonic Field around technology and constantly being beaten half to death but never quitting
|In a Nutshell|
|I'm Into:||Science Fiction, Fantasy, Anime, Video Gaming, Table Top Gaming, Fan Conventions, Costumes and Cosplay|
|My Other Car is:||a Starship|
|Why I love Sci-Fi, Horror, Fantasy, Animation, etc...||
Fantasy is the genre of the worlds we wish had been, and sci-fi is the genre of the worlds we want to be. The heroics of the former guide us to try to shape the latter in the here and now.
|Some of my SCI-FI Favorites include:||
Hoo boy, where to start? Television and movies- Babylon 5, The Expanse, Star Trek AND Star Wars (yes, you can love both without being a blasphemer :D ), Firefly (damn straight I aim to misbehave!), Killjoys (though, admittedly, mostly for Dutch), Dark Matter, Altered Carbon, Battlestar Galactica (old and new both), Westworld, and so on.
Books- Honor Harrington, The Lost Fleet, Stainless Steel Rat, Vata's War and Vata's Peace series, and ten frillion others. Seriously, I have five bookshelves in my house full to the brim and STILL have boxes full of books. If I ever won the lottery I'd wipe out every Half Priced Books and Barnes and Nobles within my havoc radius :-D
|Some of my FANTASY favorites include:||
Movies/TV- Conan (while the new one is closer to the Howard novels, the old Arnie one has a special place in my heart), LOTS of Swords-and-Sorcery B-movies, Vikings (which is loosely based on history, granted, but they put their own spin on it. Besides, Lagertha... damn), anything Tolkien (and I mean anything from the big movies that just came out all the way back to the animated ones when I was a kid), Shannara Chronicles, the Brendan Frasier Mummy movies, Dudes and Dragons (seriously, if you play D&D, watch that :D ), the Gamers and Gamers II: The Dorkness Rising (for the same reason, plus- Raise Dead on a roast chicken... nuff said), the SQUIRREL! Sorry, what were we talking about?
Books- Grew up on Tolkien, Robert Howard, H.P. Lovecraft (I had a weird childhood), and so on, and they still hold a special place in my heart. Newer additions to my book addiction are the Dresden Files, Mercedes Thompson series, and as with sci-fi stuff, ten frillion other books. I should just take pictures of my shelves to answer questions like this.
|Some of my HORROR favorites include:||
I don't dislike horror, per se, but it's not my genre. My line of work has left me facepalming at the people in those movies and novels that- to people in my career field- have the situational awareness of road kill. Eldritch horror I like (Lovecraft, Howard's Lovecraft-inspired stuff, some of Clive Barker's books, a few of King's books before he got a full head and stopped trying, etc.)
|Some of my ANIMATION-ANIME favorites include:||
I am far from an Otaku, most of my anime exposure comes from the stuff we got in Alaska as a kid (Voltron, Robotech, Transformers- the original, not the Mikey Bay movies- Battle of the Planets, Mobile Suit Gundam, etc.) and from series anime fans I am friends with. That being said, I love the Ghost in the Shell series and movies, as well as Appleseed (I admit to having a serious crush on Deunan Knute, especially after watching Appleseed Alpha, that I can neither explain nor defend considering she's a fictional character), and the newest Gundam series (Iron Blood Orphans).
|Some of my COMIC BOOK/MANGA/WEBCOMIC favorites include:||
Other than the old Judge Dredd and various Conan/Red Sonja comics, the only other ones I ever got into were The Tick and the three Dungeons & Dragons comics that cropped up for a time. I fail in this form of geek-fu
*hangs head in shame*
|Some of my GAMING favorites include:||
Tabletop- yes. Seriously, there are far, far fewer I HAVEN'T played than have. I have rolled the dice or played characters in everything from red box D&D in 82 to Metamorphosis Alpha, Shadowrun, Cyberpunk, Top Secret, Twilight 2000, MERP, Pendragon, GURPS (ten frillion and fifty flavours), Champions, Hero, Traveler (though I never died in character creation), Paranoia, Battletech/Mechwarrior, Robotech, Rifts, Dresden Files, Paladium Fantasy, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and on and on and on. Hell, even wrote one and working on another. This is where my geek-fu is strong.
Videogames? I'll play pretty much anything sci-fi or fantasy, don't do CoD (too much like work), as well as RPGs and open worlders ranging from Oblivion to Fallout to Skyrim, etc. Also Civ-type games, Mechwarrior and Battletech, and many MMOs. Currently play Secret World Legends and am considering going back to SWTOR or EQII if I can find people to play with.
|Some of my CONVENTION favorites include:||
I’m always a guest when I go to conventions, so I’m usually chained to a table or on panels. Would be nice to get out and about with someone to s the the interesting things I keep missing:)
