I'm an outgoing and talkative guy, who enjoys a deep love of books,
film, and theater. I enjoy intellectual conversation and am always
intrigued by what people are passionate about and what it says
I used to have a lot more written here, but I've grown to think
that it's more fun to learn about people, and have them learn about
me, from direct interaction, rather than a block of text.
What I’m doing with my life
I do electrical and lighting work for film right now, though I hope
to one day write and direct my own films.
I have had a couple of questions regarding what my work in film
entails. To clarify: I setup lights on set, arrange electrical
effects, and organize power distribution for films. Mostly,
however, I carry heavy things. 60% of my job arranging power
distribution revolves around putting 100 feet of cable, weighing
roughly 100-130 lbs. and designed with the diameter of a redbull
can, onto my shoulder and charging up a hill or around a set.
I’m really good at
You'll see for yourself.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm relaxed in social settings and I'm not afraid to start up a
conversation or get up in front of a group of people.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite Books? Far, far too many to name, but I am partial to The
Dresden Files by Jim Butcher, The Speed of Dark by Elizabeth Moon,
Starship Troopers by Robert Heinlein, and just about anything by
Peter David or Chuck Palanhiuk.
Favorite Movies? The Princess Bride, The Truman Show, The Fifth
Element, Serenity, (500) Days of Summer, Sunshine, Fight Club, Back
to the Future, and many others.
Favorite Shows? Just about anything by Joss Whedon or Tim Minear
(Firefly, Angel, Pushing Daises, etc.), Falling Skies, Wilfred,
Burn Notice, Archer, The Venture Brothers, and a few others.
Music? Again... *far* too many to name, but I love Enigma, Daft
Punk, David Guetta, Owl City, Sarah Bareilles, and many
I don't really have any favorite foods, it just depends on whatever
The six things I could never do without
2. Something to read.
3. Movies. I love the medium of film for storytelling.
4. Music. I have some running through my head when nothing's
Hmmm... I'll have to think about what other things I can't do
without. Honestly... not much. Always be ready to change. Only the
first thing on this list do I really *need* to be happy and whole.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
Sometimes I head out with friends, sometimes I have a gathering at
my place, and sometimes I just stay in. It all depends on the
Friday and who I'm sharing it with.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have teared up during every Pixar movie save Cars 2. Edit: And,
now, Monster's University! That said, the new breed of Pixar-style
Disney films like Tangled and Frozen are making up for it.
You should message me if
If you feel like an interesting conversation, and you're willing to
say more than "Hi." Give me something to work with, and I'll give
you a engaging response.
