I moved to San Francisco four years ago and it was one of the best
decisions I've ever made in my entire life. Ever since leaving for
college, nothing has felt like home until I settled here. After
being in Southern California for most of my life, I was finally in
a cooler temperature where I could wear hoodies and plaid shirts
more often, and get away with wearing beanies on my head whenever
I'm too lazy to fix my hair.
Fashion convenience aside, I really am just looking to meet new
friends. I'm amazed by how many new experiences this city holds, so
having a good partner-in-crime always helps in becoming a bit more
daring. As for what I'm drawn to? Witty banter is a lot sexier than
six pack abs.
What I’m doing with my life
Wow. That's a loaded question, isn't it? In its most literal sense,
I'm currently in staffing and recruiting for a high tech company
based out of San Francisco and I LOVE my job. It's the best combo
of interesting work, fantastic management, and the ability to work
from home in my pajamas for half of the week.
I’m really good at
First and foremost, I make a kick-ass mixed CD. I also have a knack
for playing host. I can organize a mean pot luck at work and have a
night of drunken Guitar Hero (back when it was still relevant) and
Hamburger Helper with friends later that night. Oh yeah, my job.
I'm pretty great at that too. There really is no humble way to
answer this question, is there?
The first things people usually notice about me
I guess I've been told that I'm a quirky, caring, unabashed geek
that loves pop culture and treats his family like friends and his
friends like family. Oh, and I'm a bit too much of a morning
person, but not in an annoying way. Well, let's face it, anybody
that can smile in the morning is kind of annoying.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Bossy Pants (mostly because of my slight obsession with Tina
Fey). Otherwise I'm a huge comic book enthusiast. I could try to
hipster it up by calling them graphic novels, but why bother,
Movies: In no particular order: About a Boy, 500 Days of Summer,
Big, Once, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Kill Bill, Lord
of the Rings, Goonies, Scott Pilgrim, District 9, Her, Lion King,
Big Fish... I'm sure I could go on.
TV: Six Feet Under, Lost, Battlestar Galactica, I Love Lucy, The
Girls (both Golden and Gilmore, as well as the adjectiveless ones
on HBO), the Walking Dead, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, Game of
Thrones, Good Wife, anything Joss Whedon had done, and I'm sure
Music: Mumford & Sons, Adele, Frightened Rabbit, Freelance
Whales, Ingrid Michaelson, Vampire Weekend, Sufjan Stevens, the
Killers, Mat Kearney, Greg Laswell, Sara Bareilles, Postal Service
(yes, I know it was only one CD), Death Cab, Matt Nathanson, Jill
Scott, Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, Coldplay, Maroon 5, Guster, Snow
Patrol, Damien Rice, poppy remixes on the dancefloor, guilty
pleasures galore, etc.
Food: I'm big on comfort food, Japanese, Mexican, Thai. McDonalds
fries, carbs in its many glorious forms and my dad's home cookin'.
The six things I could never do without
1. Friends and Family
3. My DVR
4. Things with a lower-case "i" in front of them (Tunes, Phone and
6. White Rice
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I'm going to fit all of my crazy life experiences into a proper
sitcom or graphic novel... I haven't decided which one is better
On a typical Friday night I am
I will usually have to rotate between a nice night out with good
food and good company, out drinking 'n dancing with equally good
company, or let's face it, sometimes we all just need a Friday at
home where you veg on the couch and fall asleep to a bad reality
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sometimes put people's DVDs and Blu Rays in alphabetical order
when I visit their homes.
