What I’m doing with my life
I'm a dance teacher full-time at a studio in Pittsburgh. Just
completed certification in Ireland and I'm now fully accredited.
Went to school for theatre and film and in my spare time try to
stay involved in both.
I’m really good at
- Inane movie trivia
Also, Irish dance - but not regular dancing. I'll do it, but it's
not pretty. Almost Elaine-from-Seinfeld level. The Irish kind,
though - that I'm good at. Mostly because you don't use your arms.
And, ya know, 20 years of training, nbd.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm a pretty outgoing guy, so I'd like to think it was my winning
personality - but it's probably the red hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Major cinephile...love discovering movies from every genre and time
period. Favorite directors of the moment: Kubrick, Fincher,
Anderson, Nolan, Malick, Melville. Really dig documentaries as
I'm also really into TV - Friday Night Lights, Mad Men, Arrested
Development, The Office, MST3K, In Treatment, Community, Game of
Thrones, anything and everything Ricky Gervais has any part
Music is a big part of my life, but I tend to burn through it
really quickly - listen to a tune over and over until I'm sick of
it. I'm sure my neighbors must love that. Girl Talk probably gets
the most play on my iPod. He's pretty close to a musical genius,
for the record. Would kill to get him into an MRI machine when he
listens to the radio.
The six things I could never do without
- My friends
- My job
- Good films (Memento)
- Bad films (The Room)
- Fresh pineapple
- Deep sleep
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Space, time, the futility of it all, what I'm going to have for
dinner, why Rose didn't just offer to trade off time on that
floating door with Jack instead of letting him freeze to death
On a typical Friday night I am
Teaching in the early evening, then out for dinner/drinks with
friends. I like trying new places - lived here nearly all of my
life and I still haven't seen enough of the city.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Wouldn't be very private if I shared it on the internet, would it?
