Singer for the band Atlas and the Astronaut. We're fun, check us out.
While walking, I pet every cat I come across.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in a "re-building" phase right now. About a year ago, I got laid off. Now, I'm a co-founder of a community-driven startup here in Portland, and I deliver food to pay the bills.
So, sign me up as one of those artists that are tired of working for other people.
I also make music with Atlas and the Astronaut, but I already mentioned that.
I’m really good at
Talking to cats and petting them. We've discussed this already.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music- The Mars Volta, volcano!, Portugal. the Man, Wild Orchid Children, At the Drive-in, Damian Rice, Bright Eyes, etc.
Comics- SAGA, The Walking Dead, Revival, Invincible, Chew, Elephantmen, etc.
TV- Doctor Who, The Walking Dead, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Lost, Parks and Recreation, Community, Girls, Veep, etc.
Movies- Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, I <3 Huckabees, Her, Bridesmaids, etc.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
People without any musical identity. Like, can you not?
On a typical Friday night I am
At a show. Playing a show. At home. At a friend's place. Delivering food. And by that I mean walking around petting cats.
You should message me if
You're a person that is not adverse to learning about things or activities you once scoffed at. You want to continually grow as a person. You're nice. You have your own set of beliefs and values, and even if we're different in that regard, you find the beauty in people's differences. You're respectful. You speak your mind. You're a straight shooter. You're none of these things, but that's alright.
You love the cosmic joke that is life. Laughter is wonderful.
