I grew up in Philly since junior high but spent a good deal of time
living in California, a majority of the time in San Diego; now I'm
making a return engagement. I love the east coast but I still have
a bit trouble with the idea of something called a "winter". I came
back to help family so my future is a bit up in the air but I'm
definitely of the philosophy of making the most of everything so...
here I am on OKC.
I'm definitely ENFP... maybe a slight lean towards ENTP. I can be a
bit reserved on occasion but am definitely outgoing; I love meeting
new people and doing new things. I love... life... and that sounds
so cliche but I do probably tend towards hopelessly optimistic. I
definitely love to travel but haven't been able to do enough of it
recently. By car whenever possible.
What I’m doing with my life
I've mostly worked in IT; doing freelance and contract work while
finishing up a degree right now. Otherwise... trying to resurrect a
fledgling internet business, writing blog posts that I can never
seem to put up, trying a side career in writing in general,
occasionally making electronic music or random digital "art" or
graphic design, learning how to 3D model, procrastinating on
painting the trim in my house, trying to change the world, trying
to find a better job, and occasionally fantasizing about signing up
for that one way ticket to Mars.
I’m really good at
Everything. Relatively speaking; if I suck at something I tend to
become obsessive over getting better at it. More specifically, I
suppose I'm good at... fixing things. Or figuring out how to fix
them. As long as they're not made of wood, wood and I don't get
along; although I have been experimenting with wood filler. Trying
to see the big picture in everything. Reading situations, people...
debating; defying logic... and sense, probably... playing devil's
advocate; colloquialisms; run on sentences; spending too much time
online. Colors. My kitchen is purple, my car is orange. It's
The first things people usually notice about me
Hmm. I suppose I'm pretty easygoing; enough for people to comment
on it. Strangely, I feel like I should be bothered by that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Musically... I'm a big fan of acoustic singer-songwriter type stuff
more than anything lately. I can get into rock here and there (not
metal) but generally favor stuff made with a drum machine and
turntables, and its precursors. EDM (house, drum and bass), hip
hop, funk, old school R&B, etc. and it warms my entire being
that disco is making a comeback. Thank you, Daft Punk.
I tend to not watch a ton of TV... Game of Thrones, Dexter, House
of Lies, Shameless, maybe a handful of other cable shows. A bit of
anime on occasion... I love One Piece, and a handful of other
series. Northern Exposure and Battlestar Galactica probably are 2
of my all time favorites. I watch a reasonable amount of movies,
and tend to prefer indies, but there's really no genre I lean
My attention span isn't really conducive to books. Every so often
I'll read something enough to become obsessive about reading to the
end, but usually they end up on a shelf with a bookmark forever
left on page 25. I tend to favor articles, poetry on occasion, and
tl;dr internet commentary.
The six things I could never do without
Peanut butter. I can't really think of 5 others, I'm probably ill
prepared for a zombie apocalypse.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
More like what don't I spend a lot of time thinking about.
Economics, evolution, psychology, philosophy, theology. Chaos
theory, game theory, Gaia and self organized criticality. Oh and I
recently started getting into M theory. I kinda like reading about
science whenever I can. Pseudoscience is even more entertaining.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home, probably. I tend to prefer just to go out for a few drinks
on weeknights lately. I'm a sucker for a good dive, though, and a
big fan of smaller venue concerts, or a weekend road trip. Throngs
of people can be fun on occasion. I've gone to countless music
festivals, conventions, and other events... Comic Con, Burning Man,
Coachella, among others.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm pretty much an open book when I get to know people.
You should message me if
If you're INFJ or INTJ apparently?
If you find politics and religion (peppered with sardonic humor)
appropriate dinner conversation. I am pretty left, so there's that.
I'm pretty vehemently in favor of equality; economic, gender,
racial, LGBT, and so on. I'm pretty adamant about being atheist as
well... not in any kind of militant way, but I do kind of think the
Jehovah's Witnesses are afraid to knock on my door anymore.
If you're somewhat adventurous and/or like people; with an
exception for a sociable misanthrope. I could always use a foil.
But I'm very much so an extrovert, and I make a terrible homebody.
