My self-summary
New in town. Don't judge my non New Yorkishness! NYC snobs are as boring as any other city's snobs, hate to break it to ya.

Partly quiet and calm, thinking things through, loyal, and caring. Partly ambitious, scatterbrained, mind and body on the verge of dancing, always looking for something to do and a problem to solve. I stop moving for good books, good movies, and good company. I believe being able to see yourself honestly changes the world better than trying to fix the people near to you.

I'm drawn to everything unique. There's a piece in any person that is strange and different and is hidden from the crowd: and we should be with those that celebrate and appreciate that strangeness, not just those that are like us.

I can rap Flight of the Conchords' "Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros" impeccably on karaoke. My girl-who-is-a-friend and I also did a duet of Amish Paradise that rocked. But I can't, in fact, sing.

What I’m doing with my life
"All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts,"

These days, I'm self-employed and working from home in entertainment tech. I have had a blessed decade for my 20s and am now preparing for the next one to be even better. I study theatre and film on the side and balance my time between career and fun.
I’m really good at
Wordplay and wit, from genuine wisdom to lowbrow one-liners. I grew up reading and writing, mostly fiction, so I have a fair way with words. I'd like to augment my career with writing comedy and fiction, but have spent a lot of the past decade just living and gathering experience.

I'm trying a lot of new things for myself these days, so this is a pretty hard question to answer... I think I'm finding out every day things that I could be really good at, and exploring them! I can still fake a conversation in Japanese pretty well, even though it's been 6 years since I've studied, and I can find interesting and fun common ground in conversation with almost anyone.
The first things people usually notice about me
Eyes and smile. Oh wait, doesn't everyone put that when they're being general? Sense of humor. Because that's totally more specific! Tell you what, you tell me!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Well, I suppose 2 and a half years have passed, I might as well make a 2014 update:

Books: I re-read Ender's game for the first time in a decade recently and my god. The amount of astounding beauty in that book. It's too bad the author turned into a stark-raving mad homophobic lump of sadness. But wow. That book.

I grew up on young fantasy. That's right, I liked it before it was cool, and still to a degree that's not very. These include the works of: David Eddings, Terry Brooks, JRR Tolkien, Douglas Adams, and Robert Jordan (though I never finished his downward-spiraling Wheel of Time). I understand most of the references in The Magicians books. But I like non-fiction, too, to prove to you I'm deep. Most recent reads include Harold Clurman's The Fervent Years, Kathryn Bolkavac's The Whistleblower, and various subjects to my intrigue, such as game theory (The Compleat Strategyst), story structure (The Writer's Journey), and whatever else passes my curiosity meter.

Also, plays. Shakespeare in particular. All classics I like or at least like enough to need to read up on. But included are Shaw, Ibsen, and all the Greeks. More recent authors: Sam Shepard, Arthur Miller, and Lanford Wilson.

Movies: This just seems like too big a list. Oy. Okay. Need to think a moment.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If Cimorene is going to show up and sweep me off my feet?
On a typical Friday night I am
With my brother or my friends or just trying to get to know New York better. Unfortunately, nighttime sleepovers at the Museum of Natural History are only available to kids. Boo. I promise not to get drunk and try to ride the apatosaurus!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
From the day I arrived on the planet, and blinking, stepped into the sun, there's more to see than can ever be seen. More to do than... no. Wait. Sorry. That's the Lion King.

You should message me. If.

You're looking for a mate, in either the Donna Noble or Rose Tyler sense. You need a Martin Freeman to your every-girl-Martin-Freeman-has-ended-up-with-in-movies-or-tv.
