My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Let's see: I'm a nerd I like movies to an absurd degree. I also like the occasional videogame and comic books (Craig Thompson and Darwyn Cooke are really cool).

I'm a goof, but a serious one. Which means I'm really good at knowing when to roll up my sleeves, put on my reading glasses and be all serious-face.

I really like exploring my environment. I like to run around finding all the nooks and crannies of the city that no one knows about. I also like sitting around at home.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Freaking out since I've now officially seen 2,000 movies – WOOT!
Going to Columbia College for film and loving it / planning all the stunts for my first music video! Car Chases! Sword fights! Exploding heads!

When I'm not in school, I write, take photos, slowly teach myself to cook (working on chicken teriyaki taco recipe), take acting classes, and update my movie review blog called Screen Vistas.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably my beard. They say it makes me look older. I do know I look significantly younger without it.

People always tell me that I'm very smart and funny. I think that's absurd. They notice that I say weird things like 'zappo' and 'bonk.' They also tell me I'm very sweet and have a nice smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Perfume, Slaughter-House 5, Harry Potter, The Picture of Dorian Gray, Day of the Jackal, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, The Caves of Steel, Hitchhikers Guide to The Galaxy, The Power of Myth. The James Bond books were entertainingly outdated.

Recently finished: Carrie — Finally broke my King cherry (I'm not counting his terrific memoir On Writing). I'm usually a total, 100% sucker for the epistolary approach, but it weirdly didn't work for me here, but it's a really fun book none the less.

The Disaster Artist — Greg Sestero's tabloidy tell-all book about the making of The Room: the "greatest bad movie ever made," and its mysterious, bat shit insane creator Tommy Wiseau. It was awesome!

Currently reading: 2666 — Roberto Bolaño's awesome (so far) doorstop about literary scholars from opposite sides of the globe who simultaneously become obsessed with a mysterious German author with an Italian name.

Right now I'm in kind of a Glam Rock phase but the music I listen to is reasonably wide ranging:
Be Your Own Pet, Cab Calloway, Wilco, Decemberists, Springsteen, Wire, Queen, Ennio Morricone, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, The Black Keys, Arcade Fire, The Beatles, Dresdon Dolls, New York Dolls,The Who, The Ramones, Pink Floyd, The Kinks, The Clash, Iggy Pop, Meat Loaf, CSNY, Nick Cave, The White Stripes, Buddy Guy, Pixies, Son House, Howlin' Wolf, My Morning Jacket, Wolfmother, Bo Diddley, Nina Simone, Leadbelly, Cat Power, Louie Armstrong, The XX, LCD Soundsystem. I'm always looking for new music to listen to.

NPR is also constantly on in my house.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My sketchbook + pencils and pens.
2. My Cameras (I have two, a 35mm and 120mm, I call them Leon and Matilda)
3. 3rd thing.
4. Company.
5. The sound of crickets on a hot summer night.
6. Adventure.
7. My bike.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Anything and everything. From the way dust hangs in the air during a Fall afternoon, to how awesome the new Inherent Vice will be.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working on a blog entry / doing homework / not sleeping / drawing up plans for how to divvy up the world's riches after I conquer it with my penguin army.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once posed nude for a photoshoot and loved it.

I can't whistle. No seriously, I've been trying all my life and I can't whistle. But I'll always keep trying cause that's what you do.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You plan to write more than "hi there," I'm very approachable, but I'm more turned on by the promise of conversation than anything else.

You're a Chicago area awesome person and you think you'd like to meet/talk to a nerdy, extroverted, eccentric movie buff who's a bit nervous with first dates and sometimes shy on sending that first message.

You wanna ride bikes sometime, watch Star Trek, listen to 60's girl groups, fund my extravagant cosplay projects, or help me train so I can fight the badguys.

If you want to discuss the ending your version of what happened in World of Tomorrow, classic Simpsons, feminism, music, photography, graphic design, international politics or cheesy monster movies.
