I am Not Groot... and Grumpy Cat is my Gawd.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an artist trying to break into a storytelling medium any way I can. This includes earning an animation degree, applying for storyboarding jobs and most recently, becoming a graphic novelist. Google "Fossil Bunnies" to find out more about my story of a paleontology student and her quixotic quest to disprove the theory of evolution.
I've recently taken a job in banking and hope this secondary career proves fruitful in funding my more amusing endeavors.
I’m really good at
Being the guy who remembers everything he learned in school. I
cherish knowledge and earned every point of IQ I have. I'm far from
a genius but I do think Socrates was right about the key to
enlightenment was in being aware of the vastness of one's own
ignorance. It's humbling and I'm also good at that. I know
precisely when to be humble and when it must must be discarded in
order to stand for one's self.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a rather commanding voice, even when I try to speak normal. Also, people at work now say I look like Jon Snow.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Little Miss Sunshine is the best movie ever! Don't laugh. There is
no better film for working me out of a funk. Unforgiven and
Inception vie for second. Seven Samurai and Dark City round out my
Muzak: The Killers, Muse, Protomen, Demons & Wizards, Dragon
Force, Radiohead, Bob Dylan and Blind Guardian.
As for food, you may see me enjoying sushi as a matter of high
tastes or Taco Bell when I just don't give a shit.
And how can I forget books? Fight Club by Chuck Palahnuik and
almost anything by Nietzsche, Warren Ellis or Christopher Hitchens.
Also, The Watchmen by Alan Moore, Berserk by Kentaro Miura, Full
Metal Alchemist by Hiromu Arakawa, The Giver by Lois Lowry and
Stephen King's Dark Tower.
The six things I could never do without
My Muse (aside from the band)
A good grasp on reality
Laughing in the face of absurdity
A sense of dignity
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If Nietzsche's Zarathustra were a samurai who joined forces with an
undead Mexican gunslinger and they dueled Ayn Rand in a Pokemon
battle to the death to decide the fate of the Presidency.
On a typical Friday night I am
Attempting to chill with some booze and hopefully scrape together a
game of Cards Against Humanity, which if you're unfamiliar, is kind
of like Apples to Apples... if the Devil made it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My best friend is a Satanist. They tend to be very cool people who are way more awesome than hipsters and can curse your enemies with their dark magics. If you're cool enough, they just might even entrust you as the god- nay, devilfather of their children.
You should message me if
...the phrase "I had a titular line in Star Wars" amuses you to any degree.
