My self-summary
I'm a black coffee, neat whiskey, "Bat Out of Hell" on the record player kind of guy. A friend once described me as a "stealth nerd", and I find the term both appealing and usually accurate. I will never stop using the Oxford comma. I enjoy writing, but don't know if I yet consider myself a writer. I love a good story, and usually like the bad ones too.

A North Carolinian by birth, I spent time in Chicago, Japan, and New York before finally arriving here in San Francisco. I think the burritos might keep me here for quite a while.

Lethologica: a psychological disorder that inhibits an individual's ability to articulate his or her thoughts by temporarily forgetting key words, phrases or names in conversation. I don't have it. Usually.
What I’m doing with my life
I was working in a boring job in NYC, decided I had seen enough of that city for a while, packed up the car and drove across the country to the lovely City by the Bay. I've been here for just over a year now, and have loved every minute of it.

Career-wise I work in the film industry, and for fun I love watching movies. Who said you can't have your cake and eat it too?
I’m really good at
This and this.

There's also the cello thing. Pretty handy in the kitchen, too. I can make a mean pancake.
The first things people usually notice about me
Either the vestigial twin growing from my shoulder or the prehensile tail.

I dunno...glasses? Somewhat crooked nose? Luxurious facial hair?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Kafka on the Shore, Cat's Cradle, Slouching Towards Bethlehem, and One Hundred Years of Solitude. Recently finished The Master and Margarita and Good Omens, both great.

Currently reading: The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao

Arrested Development, MST3K, Bob's Burgers, QI, Brooklyn 99, West Wing, Peep Show, Steven Universe. Just finished Master of None, and really enjoyed it.

Ikiru, Breathless, Lost in Translation, Labyrinth, Rocky Horror Picture Show, and basically anything that would play at the Alamo Drafthouse's Weird Wednesdays is good in my book. Even The Room. Actually, especially The Room.

Most recent movie watched: Where to Invade Next

I have a theory that no matter what station you listen to on Pandora, it will inevitably lead you directly to David Bowie. This is a great thing. Other favorites include Tom Waits, Nick Cave, Django Reinhardt, Joan Baez, Meat Loaf, Ghostpoet, and Oingo Boingo. Old Crow Medicine Show's "Wagon Wheel" is permanently engraved on my heart.

Pizza, whiskey, sushi, Indian, milk steak, Thai, and burritos. I'm not too picky with food.
The six things I could never do without
1. Caffeine
2. A toothbrush
3. Passport
4. Grim Grinning Ghosts
5. Dad jokes
6. Good conversation
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Far more than I should concerning a particular movie to which I can't remember the title. It's a cartoon about a troll that follows you home if you cross his bridge to steal something precious of yours. Not remembering the title is really driving me quite mad.

Other than that? Visual media, progressive politics, stories, travel options, games, and how I could one day swing having a dog.
On a typical Friday night I am
Gyring and gimbling in the wabe.

By "gyring" I of course mean "Netflix," while "gimbling" I believe is Old English for "drinking Charles Shaw," and "wabe" roughly translates to "my couch."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I thought I was Ravenclaw, but I'm actually Slytherin.
You should message me if
If this or this thrills your heart like it does mine.

If you have a good book recommendation or are willing to reveal your favorite karaoke song.
