My self-summary
I'm from rural Louisiana, I've lived in Austin for around 7 years or so. I work hard and love what I do. Art and music are both huge parts of my life. I keep myself very busy with both. I surround myself with people I love and respect. My friends and I make music, art, and food together. We watch old movies projected on the wall of our living room and laugh a lot. I love to learn and I'm skeptical of anything that sounds bull-shitty.

I live with 4 of my best buds, two of which are dogs.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a graphic designer, print-maker, and visual artist. I also write songs and play music in a few bands.

I've been trying to put a lot of energy into bettering myself in some way, whether that's reading more, learning to cook new dishes, riding my bike more, or learning a new skill.

I've recently decided to take up gardening. My grandfather is very proud of that fact, since I helped in his garden when I was a kid.
I’m really good at
I'm a very visual and mechanical person. If something is broken, I like to see if I can fix it before I call in a professional. Results may vary.

I'm also really good at being annoyed by poor grammar and internet speak such as ROTFL or R U RNING L8?
The first things people usually notice about me
Beard? Also, that I have paint or ink on my clothes, which is often the case, since I screen print or paint almost every day.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
At first, I filled this with huge lists, but I'm going to simplify that a bit and just have a few favorites listed. The rest can be left for later conversations.

My favorite book is One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I also love John Steinbeck and Kurt Vonnegut. Currently I'm reading a lot of Wendell Berry. I go through phases where I read a lot, I'm trying to get back into one now. I listen to podcasts and audiobooks while working. I'm currently in the middle of a huge audiobook about Hitler. Turns out, he was kind of a douche.

I also love Fresh Air, This American Life, and Radiolab.

My favorite film makers are probably Alfred Hitchcock and Werner Herzog. I particularly enjoy a good documentary. I can enjoy movies in most genres, as long as they're well-written and well-acted.

I don't own a TV, but I keep up with a few shows online. Among my all time favorites are The Wire, Louie, Arrested Development, Seinfeld, and The Twilight Zone. I wish Rod Sterling could speak at my eulogy.

I'm a musician myself, so music is very important to me. I love any music that is raw, has some heart, and is not written from a purely commercial standpoint. Everything from old gospel to modern noise rock to jazz to hip-hop. Well-written lyrics are important. Various favorites include Tom Waits, Califone, Neutral Milk Hotel, Nick Cave, and Nina Simone.

I generally tend to eat relatively healthy, and every now and then treat myself to something that I know is bad for me, but is delicious. I try to cook at home as much as possible, and then eat out maybe a few times a week. I love trying new types of food. Indian is definitely a favorite. I'm about to move very close to my favorite Indian restaurant, which may be dangerous.
The six things I could never do without
playing music, making art, friends, occasional camping adventures, my glasses, and orange juice
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Super pulpy orange juice and why some people don't like it. I am not one of those people. Maximum pulp all the way. I don't know why pump free is even an option, or "from concentrate," for that matter. At that point, you might as well get sunny D as far as I'm concerned.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing music with my friends, or watching a friend's band play somewhere, or staying in and watching a movie, or painting, or relaxing. I generally don't treat it differently than any other day, except that I don't work the next morning, so if there's something worthwhile to go to that's late, I'm more likely to go.

I don't drink much. You'll probably never see me trashed. I'm good at knowing when to switch to water to avoid headaches and bad decisions. I usually just have one or two drinks if I go out to a show or something. I love a quality beer or whiskey, but I drink for the taste, not to get drunk.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think less of people if they buy orange juice from concentrate.

Kidding... Sort of.

You should message me if
any of these things sound appealing:

Going to the farmers market on Saturday morning, then cooking a great meal with super fresh ingredients while listening to some 50s and 60s soul records.

Spending an afternoon going to thrift stores, record stores, and junky antique shops.

Falling asleep while laying in the grass.

Watching a great documentary.

Going to see live music in an intimate, listening environment.

Don't bother if you:

Are into drugs, talk during movies at the theater, don't like trying new food, hate getting your hands dirty, or are really religious.
