About Me

I'm a software engineer with a lot of hobbies. Hobbies are my hobbies. I love games, gardening, 3D printing, world building, and drawing. I'm a big fan of traditional Japanese architecture and art styles (bonsai, kintsugi, etc.). I love nature and analog technologies (pen, paper, typewriter).

Favorite Television

I really enjoy shows with great artwork, interesting stories, and a magical feel to them.

  • Gravity Falls
  • Hilda
  • Over the Garden Wall

I also like shows that give me a good laugh

  • The Big Bang Theory

Favorite Games

I love games. I love how they challenge us to think in new ways. I love how they tell stories. I love how they help us to explore new facets of other people.


Board Games

I love card games and board games. I love how a good card fits perfectly in my hand and the weight of the pieces as I place them down on the board.

Favorites

  • Settlers of Catan
  • Power Grid

Video Games

I don't really get into the shooters or racing games. I think video games have much more potential than that. I think that a video game is a great medium for telling a compelling story. Its a great way to have the player feel immersed and connect more strongly with the characters. I also really enjoy survivalcraft games like Minecraft for the pure creation experience.

Favorites:

  • Outer Wilds
  • Alan Wake
  • God of War
  • Uncharted
  • Minecraft
  • Subnautica

Tabletop RPGs

I love table-top role playing games. I haven't really played a lot but I love the freedom of creativity and expression they provide. I end up playing solitaire RPG games which are fun in their own right.

Favorites

  • None yet

Random Things I like

  • Birds
  • Trees
  • Lanterns (ishi doro or oil lantern)
  • Keys
  • Old mine shafts
  • Futuristic space settings (Mass Effect, Halo, Battlestar Galactica)

Gardening

I'm pretty new to gardening, but I love doing things the natural, organic way. I love the idea of permaculture, food forests, and "no till" gardening. I also love growing things from seed. I never buy starts from the nursery.

Favorites:

  • Fava bean (not to eat. its just fun to grow)
  • Okra
  • Peppers
  • Zucchini
  • Tomato
  • Corn
  • Beans
  • Onion (I've never successfully grown it but I want to)

ATC collecting

My newest hobby is making and collecting ATCs.

I enjoy making hand-drawn cards using colored pencil, marker, and watercolor. I don't do people. They're too hard.

I'm specifically collecting the following but would appreciate anything that fits the interests I've listed. I don't really care for collage.

  • Birds (especially if they're easily recognizable as a particular kind. Ie. mockingbird, magpie, etc.)
  • Airplanes
  • Dragons
  • Ship, sailboats
  • Monsters, cryptids
  • Fantasy
  • Adventure
  • Science Fiction
  • Pretty much anything unique (I'm getting bored of seeing mostly watercolor landscapes and cat paintings)

Comment: I wish I could give you SO many more hearts for this project!!! I'm SO grateful (and greedy) for the fact that I was the recipient of your ATC(s). Even my hubby is having me turn the plague doctor one into a sticker so he can have a copy on his desk LOL! He wants to make some miniatures for you (we have a bunch of 3D printers) and send them if you're okay with that! We would love to do some more swaps with you if you're interested! Thank you for joining!
Response: Phew. Glad it finally arrived! Yeah, I'd be okay with him sending some miniatures. And of course I'm open to more swaps :)

Comment: You need to make sure they are max 300x300. The ones you put on my page are too big. You can preview before you put them, so you know if they're too big.
