Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I work at a hospital in performance innovation. Basically my days
are spent looking at processes and how to make them better to
influence patient outcomes and staff satisfaction.
Try to run a non-profit brewery on the side that does small batches
to benefit charities and music awareness. It's not as active
anymore, but we're also trying experimental things more
Otherwise I'm kinda out there. My academic focus was on
alternatives to Capitalism, primarily presented in the modern era,
and I'm still into that. And Simpsons reruns. Basically hospitals,
beer, books, and golden era Simpsons.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Updating this because time has passed. I spend a good amount of
time at work, but only because I actually love what I do now. It
helps people by tangible measures and that means the world to
Otherwise I am debating on whether to get my MBA or MHA, then
ideally go back to school for a doctoral program in Economics by
30. I'd like to say I'm super social or something, but honestly, I
like my little life and have good friends and an easy living.
I'm working on a book with a mentor. It's based on leadership
structures that serve employees. The manuscript is in a constant
state of red lines, but it's fun and should see publication this
year. There is a consideration to get my Masters or Doctorate in
Literature, based on my undergraduate publications and work, but
it's not necessarily my passion.
I'm on here because companionship would be pretty cool as old
friends follow their own paths and the casual drift happens. So
yeah. I'm an office jockie who should probably be an academic. I
like hanging out at pubs and breweries. I own a cat. There are like
fifty non-native strains of yeast in the air of my apartment. Life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Well I'm published in economics and English literature journals,
and I've had a few short stories put out, so I suppose writing.
More fun, I guess, I love making beer and learning about music
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My beard, usually. I've been told many times I'm not allowed to get
rid of it. I'm also a pretty big dude and apparently look much
older than I am in person.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I need to fill this out better, but I really dig post-modernist
anything and experimentalism. Also, music wise, a ton of 70s folk,
90s punk, today's pop-punk, and a whole lot of experimental stuff
in drone and modern classical. I used to run a small record label.
Also just shitkicking rock and punk like Jon Spencer Blues
Explosion and FIDLAR.
I picked up a major in English in college, and wrote my thesis on
1980s counter-cultural literature. So I love folks like DeLillo,
Kathy Acker, Vonnegut, etc. Absolutely hate Ayn Rand. Hate.
Television is a passion, primarily interest in sitcoms and writers'
rooms over prestige dramas or auteur projects but hey. For as much
as I love, say, Breaking Bad, I would trade classic Simpsons for it
in a heart beat. Perhaps even NewsRadio, at least the Phil Hartman
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
No clue. Some Red Bull, a David Harvey text, and a notepad would
keep me occupied though.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
an odd preference for irrational things despite statistics
education. Preferring to play stripes in 8-ball for example.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Decompressing from the work week, likely opening a rare beer then
deciding on where to eat dinner. From there whatever comes along
works just fine.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I own a cat named after a Kurt Vonnegut character, so that probably
says a lot. Uh, I suffer from pretty severe depression and anxiety,
but I see a shrink and it's been a lot better since I started a new
