On a certain brisk Saturday evening in the fall of 2011 I was riding my new bicycle home from work. I was in a serene and pleasant mood because I'd had a lucrative night and, as I said, I was riding my new bicycle. Everybody likes new things. Then, quite unexpectedly, a very inattentive driver broke me and my new bicycle. Along with the frame and a few spokes, one of the aforementioned arms and aforementioned legs were also broken. Now I have metal where I once had bones. Kinda like Wolverine.
I have many monotonous, yet creatively fulfilling pursuits, like painting murals and doing crossword puzzles. I once finished a New York Times crossword in under 4 minutes (full disclosure: it was a Monday). I once provided the voice for a puppet having a freestyle rap battle in a movie musical about Magic the Gathering (seriously). I once spent 3 months hitchhiking through Southeast Asia and Japan. I was voted "Best All-Around Boy" in both 7th and 8th grade. I enjoy listening to and performing spoken word ( I've represented Atlanta at the National Poetry Slam for the last 8 years). I enjoy craft beer, good grammar, and intense table tennis games, sometimes all at the same time. World travel at least once every 2 years is essential. Minimalist (I can easily and comfortably live out of a backpack). I'm fairly introverted and tend to go into hermit-mode for long periods of time. Perhaps its a zen thing. I don't like small talk or smug people. I wish I was a better beat-boxer.
