My self-summary
Totally awesome dude from Maine. Lived in LA for 4 years where I worked for a Disney Channel show and wrote for CollegeHumor and Nerdist. I have just moved back to the east coast due to a disenchantment with writing as a profession and a preference to be closer to family. Now living in Boston and working for a commercial real estate firm.

I am very into the outdoors and am constantly planning hunting/fishing/skiing trips in Maine. I also lived in Colorado for a period and miss the west dearly. I usually make it out once a year to visit my brother who still lives in Denver.

I am also very into woodworking and built furniture from reclaimed wood on a regular basis in LA. Very eager to get back into it but sadly sold all my power tools when I moved back east. If you have a table saw you're looking to get rid of, let me know.
What I’m doing with my life
Working in commercial real estate. When I am not working I am either exploring Boston, hanging with my niece and nephew (1 & 3), or driving up to Maine for the weekend.
I’m really good at
Saying yes to whatever day trip idea pops into your head. I am always ready to drive out to any beach/mountain/lake I haven't been to before and will never get tired of the New England Aquarium.

Taking on massive cooking challenges. I once bought a 30 lb pig and slow cooked in the ground for 12 hours. I am also slowly gaining proficiency with Indian cooking but it will likely be a few more decades before that is mastered.

Posing and debating meaningless questions. Ex. Which would win in a fight - bear or mountain lion?
The first things people usually notice about me
Unless you always wear a massive cowboy hat, I don't see how this question has any value.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies - Somewhat of a snob when it comes to comedy. I like smart ones like Superbad, Orange County, and I Heart Huckabees and dumb ones like Airplane, Top Secret and Not Another Teen Movie. I'm pretty easy to please in every other genre.

TV - The Office was the show that made me want to write, though I have stopped paying attention to it as of late. My true favorites are Always Sunny, Family Guy, and The Colbert Report. As much as I hate hearing other people say this - I have started watching a lot of British comedy recently. Given the choice, I will always opt for a Seinfeld re-run before any of these.

Books - The last novel I read for pleasure was probably Hatchet by Gary Paulson (~8th grade) or something in the Matt Christopher canon. The books I gravitate towards are typically the more scientific ones like The Selfish Gene, Guns Germs and Steel, and At The Water's Edge. That said, I am attempting James Joyce's Ulysses at the moment. Sometimes I'll just curl up by the fire and read the iTunes User Agreement or a good Adobe Licensing Update.

Music - Pretty much like it all (including country) but classic rock is certainly my favorite genre. Springsteen, Seger, CCR, Petty, Zeppelin. Bob Dylan never misses in my opinion and I own 18 Van Morrison albums. I'm also pretty into the SportsCenter theme song.
The six things I could never do without
The state of Maine, seafood, India pale ales, Van Morrison, the woods, carpentry.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Taking complicated and impractical adventures to remote sections of the world. Jungles, mountains, desserts. Basically any place I've read about in National Geographic.
On a typical Friday night I am
Coaching the Dillon Panthers.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It was me. I let the dogs out.
