My self-summary
I'm infamous for overanalyzing things, but I try to be clever and funny about it. I was really good at math and science in school, so naturally i decided to go to college for film. I have this weird thing about math and balance and narrative structure and I could talk about the subtext of batman films for hours.

American intellectual intolerance disappoints me. Part of me wants to run off to a country that knows how to balance a budget. Austin is as good as it gets, otherwise, but it is a little discomforting to know that I'm a 90-minute drive from a city that booed Bill Nye off the stage.

I use atheism as a religion. That means that I take comfort in scientific knowledge the way that I imagine religious people take comfort in prayer. If I'm in a shitty mood, I'll watch Cosmos or listen to Andrew Bird. Being reminded that there are over 50 trillion cells in my body somehow makes me forget any problems I have.
What I’m doing with my life
My job is steady and sometimes frustrating, but I am good at it. I direct live TV, produce videos, and sometimes they let me travel and film things. In the past year I've been to Tanzania, Thailand, India, China, and Hong Kong (I know Hong Kong is part of China, but they are different, trust me).

A plurality of my enjoyment comes from spending time with my dog, Fenrir, and taking her to the park. I spend a lot of time reading, watching movies, and cooking meals that accidentally end up being vegan.
I’m really good at
Writing. In college, I was editor-in-chief of the campus magazine and other film students would ask me to write scripts for them. My minor was creative writing, but the classes infuriated me because no one took them seriously enough.

Oh, and puzzles. Not necessarily the jigsaw variety, but the cool kind with codes and trivia and symbols. I was the 41st person to solve this national puzzle that Wired published, and I used to craft an annual puzzle issue of the magazine I ran that led to a location with a cash prize.
The first things people usually notice about me
People usually notice my dog and ignore me. It is sort of frightening how long people are capable of talking to my dog without addressing me. She's a rescue. The shelter I found her at chopped off her tail, which pissed her off enough that she felt the need to intimidate them. They were going to put her down, but I ended up adopting her. It turns out she is very friendly so long as you don't amputate parts of her body. Go figure.

Food: I like cooking, but cooking good food for one can be a bit difficult. I'm not vegan, but a lot of times I'll cook something that turns out really good and then hours later come to the realization that it was vegan or vegetarian. Don't believe me? Guess you'll just have to talk me into cooking for you.
The six things I could never do without
1. My dog, Fenrir
2. Bookshelves
3. Halloween
4. A good story
5. Ice water
6. Having no clue which thing "I could never do" without the above 5 things
I spend a lot of time thinking about
As nerdy as this is, I can just sit there and think about how big the universe is. It fascinates me how infinite time is, and how even light--the fastest thing out there--can take centuries to get here from the nearest stars. The immensity of this playing field creates a nearly infinite sample set of planets and conditions that practically necessitates the seemingly-impossible: life. I think that kicks god's ass any day.

Either that, or I'm still thinking about how upset I was about how Lost ended.
On a typical Friday night I am
Wrestling my dog, taking something apart, telling little-known greek myths or Grimm fairy tales while not entirely sober, stuck at work late trying to finish a project, putting an unfathomable amount of effort into not killing my latest orchid, or playing some video game that doesn't involve shooting things. But not all on the same Friday. At least not yet. One of these Fridays...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Even the longest-lasting condiments manage to expire in my refrigerator? I am embarrassingly good at Guitar Hero? I can do like 200 crunches, but only 30ish push-ups? When I was five I would put on magic shows? Mall Easter Bunnies freak me out a bit? One summer in high school I helped on an awful Troma film and appear in it as a zombie? I use needless question marks at the end of statements when I'm not sure what you mean by "private"?
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 20–32
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
you aren't a fan of the questions here. I feel like the dumb little OK Cupid marshmallow robot needs to buy me a drink before asking me things like "would you cut someone during sex if they asked for it?"

Or if you just want to talk books, movies, Batman, or anything else. I'm always up for a good conversation or friendly debate. I'm perfectly capable of making platonic friends, so don't go running and screaming if I'm not your Mr. Perfect. I'm more of a long-term dating guy, so I tend not to completely make up my mind about a person just because we had dinner together over a couple drinks.

When I do end up with someone, I want it to be a reasonably intelligent atheist who likes my dog. I don't really have a "type" beyond that. If asked to conjure up an image of the perfect woman, I don't really rule much out, so my mind just sort of goes blank from infinite possibilities. If we click, I'll find the beauty in what you do, regardless of whether you're trying to save the world or take it over.
