My self-summary
I moved to seattle last February. Where them dive bars at?
I think living in seattle I am the happiest I've ever been.
I was told by a radio dj in nashville that I look like the love child of Ben Gibbard and Colin Meloy.
Louis C.K., Tina Fey, and burritos are my spirit animals.
I am probably overly sardonic and swear too much, but I don't fucking care.

I am a songwriter, graphic designer, book publisher, and a writer. I unironically like PBR (as the shitty beer it is), but Oly and Rainier are growing on me.

**Update**
I still prefer PBR to Oly and Rainer and find it funny that pabst owns both. Hah

I want to get out and be more active. I love biking and want to hike and just explore on foot as much as possible.

Other extraneous facts
- grew up in Kenya and Sudan.
- bought my first bike for $20
- hate dancing
- one of seven children
What I’m doing with my life
Making Music: http://www.facebook.com/CapeDisappointmentMusic

And being a project manager for a short story project called Onyx Neon Shorts: http://shorts.onyxneon.com

Oh and schlepping expensive dog food to bougie white people.
I’m really good at
- My super power is picking the longest line at the grocery store.
- Recognizing famous people in small roles in film and tv (Dotcom in The Departed, anyone?)
- Mario Kart 64.
- Making Quesadillas.
- Dad Jokes
The first things people usually notice about me
a radio dj told me I look like the love child of Ben Gibbard and Colin Meloy.

On a typical Friday night I am
I don't even know what a typical Friday looks since I work. But my prefence would be having all my friends bring alcohol and we just play all the folk songs we know.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
- My secret goal in life is to be Damien Jurado.
