My self-summary
I'm an active humanist and passive misanthrope. I have high standards and I have a pretty specific type. Need someone exceptional who can make me laugh and engage in intelligent conversation.

I don't speak from a script and I guess some people don't like that. I have done a little traveling in my time and I want to travel again. I'm a little bit of a nerd. I watch a lot of cartoons, play video games (although I don't have as much time for games as I once did), and I have a really big toy collection (seriously, it's quite spectacular). I really don't like summarizing myself in an impersonal medium such as this because it just comes out as an unstructured list of trivial facts about me.

I'm pretty smart. I can go on forever about social justice, the prison/military industrial complexes, the patriarchy and white supremacy, and for this reason people always react with shock when they meet me in person and discover that I am actually really fun. (Just because I care about social justice doesn't make me a buzzkill.)
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a videographer and I have a pretty solid regular 10-5 job in my field with a flexible schedule. I freelance here and there on the side, as well.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm the moon.

No, I'm not. But people often tell me that I remind them of Stephen Colbert, partially because of my looks and partially because of my personality.

But I am complimented from time to time about my hair, my teeth, and the way I dress.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Shows: Breaking Bad (favorite), The Wire (other favorite), Game of Thrones, Treme, Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Mad Men, Cowboy Bebop (obsessed), Firefly, Venture Bros., Childrens Hospital, The Office (UK version, and early seasons of US version), Community, Parks and Recreation, 30 Rock, Arrested Development, Party Down, Avatar - The Last Airbender, Legend of Korra, Luther, Daily Show, Colbert Report, Tim and Eric, and various cartoons from the 90s.

Books: Mostly I read nonfiction nowadays, because my love of good narrative is slightly overpowered by my desire to learn. I read some Hedges here, some Chomsky there. Also, I understand that there is no way to enforce required reading among adult Americans, but I firmly believe that every American should read Michelle Alexander's The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, as it is probably the most socially relevant contemporary book on the market

Movies: I'll spare you my long list of movies and just say that I am obsessed with Pixar. I could write volumes of praise for each Pixar movie. They are brilliant on so many levels and are too often under-appreciated by average movie-goers. I really love animation. I also like films by Wes Anderson, Akira Kurosawa, Quentin Tarantino, the Coen brothers, Miyazaki, etc.

Music: I could go on forever. I have very diverse taste in music. Ask me about it. (In case you were thinking about messaging me but didn't know what to say, this might be a good ice-breaker.)

Food: I like it.
The six things I could never do without
My camera

My toy collection


My computer (for personal and professional reasons)

Dark beers, porters, stouts. Sometimes IPAs.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I would do if I was president.

Why people are so attracted to the myths of post-racism and American exceptionalism.

Why MRAs are the absolute worst people in the world.

I often think about what I would do if I had super-powers, and how I would use them to pummel the establishment into submission.

I think a lot about my short film idea, and whether or not I'll ever finish it.
You should message me if
If you're a free thinker who is intelligent and fun. I think the most important quality in any person is their capacity for empathy.

I'd love to meet someone who's independent and intelligent and successful and challenges whatever remains of my patriarchal conditioning.

Feminists/activists/nerds are all welcome. If we have similar taste in music then we will probably get along well, but it's definitely not a necessity.


You occasionally begin sentences with the phrase, "I'm not a feminist, but..." (Feminism is something to be proud of.)

You occasionally begin sentences with the phrase, "I'm not a racist, but..." (Guaranteed the next thing you say is going to prove otherwise.)

You describe yourself or your ideal significant other as "god-fearing".
