Just moved to Austin for a new job. I've kinda lived all over, but
I hope to make this move a lot more permanent than any of my
What I’m doing with my life
Getting settled into a new life in Austin, working at the Texas
legislature, exploring this crazy town.
I’m really good at
Statistics. Fixing watches. Selling things to people. Being funny.
Being totally unfunny. Being weird. Self-deprecating humor.
Dog-sitting. Drinking water really really quickly. Listening to
The first things people usually notice about me
Beard. Hands down, it's the beard. I shaved it twice in the last 10
years for Halloween costumes. None of my friends knew who the hell
I was at first when I walked into the party.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
So many to name, so little space. So, instead of naming all of my
favorites I can think of, I'm going to force myself to name just
one thing in each category. Just one, that if I were stuck alone on
an island for the rest of my life and could only have one of each
thing, that's what I would pick.
Book: East of Eden, John Steinbeck
Movie: Monty Python and the Holy Grail
TV Show: The Walking Dead
Music: The Black Keys
Food: My mom's cabbage rolls
That was really really hard to do.
The six things I could never do without
My Ipod. If i lost my music I'd probably be sad for at least 6
My dogs. They're big, furry, love me unconditionally, and smother
me whenever I lie on the couch.
My computer. I love video games more than I probably should, but
it's a healthier vice than heroin or hoarding.
My family. Even when I've done really stupid shit (and i've done a
lot of really stupid shit), they say "wow, you're a dumbass. But we
love you anyway."
My car. I paid it off last summer and now I own it outright. I will
drive it until it dies. Maybe even longer. I might push it around
like it's in a convalescent home.
A watch on my wrist. It's always important. You never know when
your phone will die. Plus, it's totally classless to dig around in
your pocket for your phone when somebody asks you what time it is.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, the universe, and everything. Beer and how unbelievable it is
that one beverage can have so many different flavors and aromas.
Garden gnomes and who invented them. Discrete event history
estimators. Pretty women. How i can invent the next big thing in
watches, get rich, and enjoy myself without having to worry about
working just to get paid. Red shift. Seriously, red shift is
utterly frightening to think about.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm not sure anymore. My friday nights used to be spent bartending,
but now I may have more free time. Tell me some things to try in
You should message me if
God tells you to. Or even if he doesn't. If you're bored, if you're
lonely, if you're too busy, if you're just looking for somebody to
vent to because your day sucked. If you want to hear somebody vent
to you because their day sucked. If you think i'm hot and sexy. If
you think i'm just average looking. Basically, just message me for
whatever reason you want. I don't care why you wanna talk, just
that you wanna talk.
