Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
If I had to describe myself, I'd say I'm an old black man trapped
in a white guy's body. <--- I always wonder how this is

If left to my own devices, you'd probably catch me at Zilker,
trying to play soccer (keyword trying
), rewatching The
Wire, or taking a ride on the bike.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I was fortunate to have bought the same house that I rented for 6
years, about a year and a half ago. My dad, stepmom and little
sister (she's 17 and rad) like to come up and volunteer to work on
my house with me. It's so awesome. Obviously I love my family and
hanging with them. But then they drive up from SA to do MANUAL
LABOR. WHaaat?? How does that happen? I have no idea, but I love
them for it and I get to kick it with them on a pretty regular
basis. And build sheds and patios and shit. It's amazing.
Aside from that, you'll catch me ridin a bike, kickin a soccer ball
around, buying way too many concert tickets, camping with friends
and practicing my >.08 BAC Spanish. I have a pretty wide social
network, I'd say. So sometimes, I have to see a show or watch a
game with amigos on a Tuesday. But that's good, in my humble
For income, I work at a company. It pays the bills. Sends me to
some far off locations once, twice or three times a year if I'm
lucky. It's peachy keen.

Musical tastes include Motown
, anything from New Orleans
, world music, most
stuff on KUTX, rap circa 1994-2002 and Mayer Hawthorne.
I'm a dork and I love documentaries (all you NOVA watchers out
there HOLLLLLA!!). With regards to books, the two that stand out
the most in my mind are The Prophet by Gibran and The Road Less
Traveled by Peck. Both are recommendations from my grandma. She's
the most rad grandma you've ever met. Ask me about her.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm really terrible at talking to girls. It's not a confidence
thing. It's not a shy thing. I haven't figured out what it is, but
it's a pretty terrible, terrible affliction.
That and I have a freckle on my foot. You're not getting any more
private than that, I'm afraid.
