My self-summary
I am an avid player of Cribbage. I'm a Manager at a photography company, and play bass in a band. In my free time I'm a writer, musician, photographer, and dog lover.

What I’m doing with my life
I am an English major, a worker, and a traveler. My dream in life is to be a High School English teacher and/or a professional tournament Cribbage player.
I’m really good at
Writing diatribes about the people of the MBTA, photography, bass/guitar, and driving too much. I'm also very good at Cribbage.
The first things people usually notice about me
People usually notice my Baltimore Orioles hat (even though I'm a Red Sox fan, and I've never been to Baltimore). Either that, or they notice my camera bag that I carry around everywhere, or the tattoos on my arm. I wish people would notice me for my Cribbage skills.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I do greatly enjoy listening to Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of The Moon" while playing Cribbage. Here's why:

Every summer, my dad's best friend and I would sit down and play Cribbage on the porch of my family's cottage overlooking a lake in New Hampshire. There was this one time that we were playing Cribbage, and we started to listen to "Dark Side of the Moon." My dad's friend specifically pointed out to me during the song "Time" that, "Joe, I want you to pay attention to this song, it's very important. You'll understand when you're older. Trust me."

I listened ever so closely, and I caught a particular notice to the line, "And then one day you'll find, ten years have got behind you, no one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun," followed immediately by a David Gilmour guitar solo. Great song.

Years later, my dad's best friend and I were sitting on the same New Hampshire cottage porch playing Cribbage and listening to Pink Floyd when he told me, "Now, remember Joe, you first listened to this song ten years ago." And that was when it hit me:

I first heard this song ten years ago, and it warned me that I would not have accomplished anything I had wanted. I feared the realization that all I could have accomplished so much: Traveling the world, becoming a teacher, earning a Ph.D, writing a book, and so forth, but no one had told me when to run, and I had missed the starting gun. There an overwhelming sense of failure running through my mind.

Luckily, that was not the case, as there's nothing more I've needed in my life than a good game of Cribbage, and an ice cold Pabst Blue Ribbon beer.

Crisis averted. Phew.
The six things I could never do without
Writing, good books, a camera, friends, spontaneity, and Cribbage.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How the number 0 progressed mathematics, how stairs progressed architecture, how Shakespeare invented the prefix "un", and the mystical 29 point Cribbage hand. Only once have I scored a 28 point hand, but never once the 29 point hand.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out at a show (music, movies, burlesque), taking photos, playing music, playing board games, and/or playing Cribbage.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I watch Pulp Fiction at least 15 times a year. It's now July 8, 2014, and I've watched it six times.

Also, I haven't played cribbage in about four years.

Also, I am usually drunk after two beers, so I'm a very cheap date.

  • Ages 24–35
  • Near me
  • For long-term dating
You should message me if
