I'm very easy to hang around. I'd take fantastic conversation over
most anything, and I love to read. I also like movies, and beaches,
and mountains, and breathtaking monuments of mankind. But so does
everyone. I'm not sure I can sell the whole package in this little
intro, so I'll just gamble and see if you read on.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I work for a nonprofit rebuilding houses in New Orleans,
but will be finishing my contract with them in April.
I'm a writer
. I still need the extra training from grad school,
but I've been writing
for ten years and that's what I'll be
doing from now on.
I’m really good at
Finding places for things. Employing velcro in magnificent ways,
and also good at putting my hands on a paperclip, rubber band, and
a pair of AA batteries. I'm also good at writing, but that's one of
those subjective things that one should never claim, and runs the
risk of gathering great expectations from outsiders.
The first things people usually notice about me
My loud voice. My voice is deep and noticeable, and often can be
heard through walls.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy series. Most any history book.
Movies are tough, where does one begin. I grew up on Star Wars and
loved Indiana Jones, and in the last several years I've grown to
love Wes Anderson movies. Naturally, I love tons of movies, but I
love horror and scifi movies. Game of Thrones--now there's a good
The six things I could never do without
1) 100 sheet composition notebook produced in Roaring Spring,
2) Pen: Papermate profile, 1.4 (absolutely must be the clicky
3) Book bag: I don't carry it everywhere, but if I only had six
things, this would be in the top.
4) Tape recorder: I've gone digital of course, but nothing beats a
home made cassette tape.
5) A good spool of string.
6) Warm weather.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How all the pieces fit together. The absurdly spacious universe.
How awesome it will be when animated movies are easier to make.
What it must have been like to cross the Atlantic in a 90 foot
sailing cutter a couple hundred years ago.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really don't have private things. And I can't think of anything I
am not willing to admit.
