My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am largely motivated by a need to create things: I make movies and write, and I play guitar. I've needed creative outlets for as long as I can remember: there's already a draft of Star Wars episode VII in my parent’s house somewhere, illustrated in Crayon (along with two volumes of a comic book that's basically a straight Calvin and Hobbes ripoff), but George Lucas did not think to call me. In what I'm sure was a deft blow for feminism, I remember writing Leia saving Luke in an X-Wing.

I like absurdity and practicality in equal amounts, adventure as much as I like making blanket forts and having movie marathons. I'm a problem-solver. I'm a believer in the potato as a romantic symbol. For the past few years I've been collecting content from around the internet that I think the Pope would enjoy, to email him; I call it the Francis Imperative. I love traveling. I'm a missionary kid, a synesthete, and what we in the industry might call "kind of a nerd."
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work building SEO campaigns for a digital marketing agency, and as a story designer for a game. Last year I lived in Iceland for several months, working on a project related to Norse Mythology I do freelance videography, photography, and film work on the side, planning to start my own media production business, and have a bunch of film and writing projects underway. Around work stuff, I play board games regularly, play a lot of guitar, and make a lot of late-night trips to QuikTrip, because it is no fault of mine that the writing process requires soda and candy.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing, guitar, film, puzzles, killing cockroaches (there's a broadsword in the mix), crappy MS Paint drawings, and being denied access to picky nations in Western Europe. Checking emails with a viscosity since 2001. I can also, without fail, choose the worst line to wait in at the grocery store.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Lovecraft, 1984, Brave New World, world mythology, Norse poetry (note for the thorough readers: talking about this will make me respond to you) David Coperfield (with one P) by Edmund Welles, Grate Expectations (also by Edmund Welles), Rarnaby Budge by Charles Dikkens (the well-known Dutch author)

Music: Tommy Emmanuel, Tony Rice, John Doyle, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, most anything Chris Thile does, Boston, Kansas, Paul Simon. Apparently Meat Loaf, if the past week or two is any indication.

Food: I love sesame chicken in a shameful way. The lady at the local Number One China was my emergency contact for a little while. I have tried Hákarl, and will eat pretty much anything after that. Look it up.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order:
-My guitar.
-Stories of all media.
-Good company
-Recharge time
-The absurd
-That feeling when a story clicks together, and suddenly it's all there in your head ready to be written. It's the moment when you can taste the story.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My next project, and that question that has no answer: where are the Snowdens of yesteryear?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Any range of things. I would like to expand my experiences and try some new stuff, and someone to do that with would be great. The important thing to me is to be in good company.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm 98% sure that the Sorting Hat would sort me into Hufflepuff, and I'm totally fine with that. (There are dozens of us! Dozens!)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to geek out about movies with me, or build blanket forts, or travel somewhere new. Or if you recognized any of my dumb references.
