My self-summary
Hi, I'm Byron. I love talking about how things influence and affect society. I am reasonably cultured and interested in such things but I am not a supreme intellectual. I will challenge your assumptions as I hope you do mine as well. I have a great deal of respect for deep thinkers and those who are willing to talk about the complexities of modern day life.
I am not angered very easily, but do have very strong opinions. I'm interested in gender studies, feminism, intersectionality and consider myself fairly well versed, but I'm always willing to learn more as it's a constant learning process. I'm open minded, and am considerate of others boundaries.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a filmmaker and writer as well as a bartender with various projects all in the oven. I love serialized television and movies, and am trying to have satisfying involvement in that industry. I really enjoy dancing, and I'm actually rather good at it. If you want to head out to Goodfoot, or The Lovecraft, I'm so down. Though don't think I need anyone else to get me started, I'll probably be on the dance floor before you will. I'm much more active recently. Take me to the river!
I’m really good at
Haha. I don't know. adapting to different situations. Keeping my cool. Acting like a fool? Oh yeah, DANCING. I make pretty good food and mix a damn fine cocktail.
The first things people usually notice about me
I can be rather loud, and obnoxious, but in bursts. I am shy and then I EXPLODE WITH ENTHUSIASM. I believe most people really don't know what to think of me at first. I'm very contradictory, and a lot of people tend to think I'm either one thing or another, later to be completely surprised to find I am neither. What I'm saying is, I get better with time... hah.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Things like Star Trek, Marvel, Politics, The X-Files, Broad City, Kimmy Scmidt, Wet Hot American Summer, Girls, Humans, Halt and Catch Fire, Sense8, Rick and Morty, Buffy, The Americans, Mad Men, Veronica Mars, Feminism, Comics that include: Locke and Key, Ms. Marvel, DEMO, lotsa Marvel stuff, Saga, The Invisibles, Sex Criminals, Captain Marvel, Squirrel Girl, Alias, DMZ, Y: The Last Man, Film, TV, Sustainability, Alternate Energies.

The six things I could never do without
Uhm. Beans and Rice. Avocados. DS9 reruns. Guayaki Yerba Mate. A copy of OK Computer and some way to listen to it. A good pair of socks. That's six, right?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The ethics and possibilities of technology and how it will help or harm us. The Future of the Internet. Why there aren't better female characters on TV. How to make the best Cheese Alternative.
On a typical Friday night I am
99% Chance I am at the theater working, but a good chance I'm getting drinks somewhere or at Sizzle Pie. I'm trying to drink less beer, despite the fact that I enjoy it. Lately I've spent every other Friday at Lovecraft. I love the puzzle box.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't have any tattoos, nor do I want any.
You should message me if
You're cool with nerds and have good amounts of energy. I'm always down to hang out, get a coffee, a drink, see a movie, wander around. I'm not really looking for a relationship right now, so know that. More looking for friends/dating/hang out type of thing. If there's chemistry sure, things happen. You want to watch some X-files, TNG reruns.
