My self-summary
I'm a freight train of id. I'm equal parts life of the party and fella sobbing into the punch bowl. For years I was a standup comic; presently I'm a corporate shill. I draw and craft. I'm a native New Englander and I take a great deal of pride in that, especially in the fall. Two years ago I moved to an apartment in West Hartford Center after a decade in Boston, though I still weekend elsewhere as I've few acquaintances in the 'Cut. I was raised on the cover of a Saturday Evening Post. I find humor in pretty much everything except sitcoms. I'm well-intentioned and altruistic; extremely self-interested people make me want to drown myself in Vicks VapoRub. I take an obsessive, meditative joy in cleaning. I fucking love obscenity, though I'm rarely crass. I'm not into religion (when I enter houses of worship my skin breaks into hives). I'm seeking a best friend and long-term monogamous partner, and phrasing it like that is so unromantic I think I just choked on my own tongue.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying not to make the papers during my commute. On the side, making and exhibiting board and card games.
I’m really good at
Retrieving your mood ring from over by that beehive.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm shiny. Shaving my head is pretty much just an excuse to apply Skintimate Flirty Mango® to more areas of my body than just my legs and bikini line.

The six things I could never do without
1) My pug, Vi
2) Hiking shoes
3) Uh
4) Four
5) Other
6) Things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Alternate timelines, feathered dinosaurs, alternate timelines in which there are feathered dinosaurs.
On a typical Friday night I am
Someplace where it's appropriate to drink top-shelf rye. Or someplace where it's frowned upon and drinking it anyway. You're not the boss of me, Chuck E. Cheese. I don't have to hide my drinking in the ball pit.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Looking up gives me vertigo - particularly looking up at skyscrapers. Structures really shouldn't have more than three floors. Those extra floors are just showboating.
You should message me if
a) You're a neurotic, witty, passionate, nerdy, emotionally-available dog lover. Let's paint the town mauve.
b) You want to stage a hoax relationship to appease our relatives for the holidays only to realize that we're compatible after all. Then, like the bittersweet ending of a Nick Sparks novel, I die of malaria.
