My self-summary
Never been good a describing myself (who really is?).

Essentially, I have a deep passion for all forms of storytelling: books, movies, comics/graphic novels, plays; and baseball (which is an unpredictable narrative in itself). I’ll travel any chance I get and love me a good road trip (or any activity that is born out of the blue). I usually get along with most people I meet and try to take things as they come. I don’t like to plan things too far ahead because plans often change and then people get disappointed. So I try to follow my instincts and live in the moment (the achievement of which is sometimes hindered by my tendency to overthink everything).
What I’m doing with my life
Editing/translating subtitles job-wise. Books, movies and heavy laughing, hobby-wise. Just tryin' to keep on livin'... L-I-V-I-N
I’m really good at
saying yes, listening, catching things, being on time, laughing and talking at the same time, seeing things from other people's perspectives, film trivia
The first things people usually notice about me
bright eyes and mischievous smile
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Music: Hip-hop, electro, punk, funk, soul, ska, rock, indie, folk, breakbeats, hardteck, psy, oldies, doo wop new wave, rockabilly, jazz, Tom Waits (what genre is he anyway?), anything creative that attempts to break the molds of convention (but minimal can be powerful too; look at the Ramones)

oh yeah, food. I'll eat practically anything (except mushrooms) from anywhere in the world
The six things I could never do without
Books, movies, a baseball and glove (it's therapeutic), music, friends, after-work doobie
I spend a lot of time thinking about
too many damn things!
On a typical Friday night I am
Fridays and Saturdays are for laughing it up and letting loose, though some Friday’s I’ll stay home and watch some television marathon or movies. Evenings at home (or theirs) with friends are also always fun
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Depends who's asking...
You should message me if
if you're looking for a goofy yet reliable guy with whom to share good moments on a potentially permanent level... or if you just wanna discuss how incredibly engaging John Connolly's Charlie Parker series is..(never met anyone who's read them)
