I'm proud of my Hoosier roots and love my new Santa Monica home, but somehow I feel most myself when I'm traveling abroad, often in Germany. I think it has to do with the way that people make allowances for foreigners, so any of my idiosyncrasies can just be chalked up to "he's not from these parts."
I'm happy most of the time. I like cats and dogs, but I don't have any pets at the moment. I was raised Catholic and still consider myself to be one, but I find that the moments I feel closest to God are when I'm sharing food and drinks and good conversation with good company. I'm not a vegetarian, but I try to be very conscious about the amount of meat that I eat.
My favorite word in the English language is "apparatus." Just about anything can be an apparatus.
I am intelligent, kind, and loyal.
