My self-summary
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 previous ones.
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 music, foosball.
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 months.
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 Austin?
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.
