Well, lesseeeee. I'm a Texas boy, born and raised. I love Americana music, good beer, and new friends. I like camping and hiking and outdoor shit.
A friend recently described me as "a boy with a lot of feelings." Take that how you will.
I'm really just looking for someone to go to Waffle House with.
What I’m doing with my life
I've had a highly varied string of occupations ranging from trailbuilder to bartender to flower delivery man. Currently I cook in a restaurant downtown. Just tryna keep things interesting.
I’m really good at
I don't know about REALLY good, but I'm halfway decent at writing joke country songs.
The first things people usually notice about me
I dunno... Friendly disposition?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
John Prine. Townes Van Zandt. Bob Dylan. Shovels and Rope. Ryan Adams. Jenny Lewis. Hayes Carll. Todd Snider. Gillian Welch. Emmylou Harris. Fleetwood Mac. Willie Nelson. Jason Isbell. Brandi Carlile. Dawes. Joe Pug. I think I've got a healthy appreciation for the contemporary, but honestly I spend a lot more of my time listening to old records.
As far as books go, I tend to gravitate towards history-related stuff. Currently reading a biography of Kit Carson. Last thing I read was Todd Snider's memoir (if you've read it, please message me and let's talk about how awesome it was).
Shows I'm currently wrapped up in: X-Files, 30 Rock, Bojack Horseman, OITNB, Better Call Saul.
Shows that I've finished but hold a permanent place in my heart: Parks and Rec, Breaking Bad, Battlestar Galactica, Arrested Development.
That makes it sound like I watch a lot of TV, but I really don't. Which is why it takes me forever to watch anything. Which is why I'm still watching the X-Files, a show that went off air 13 years ago.
I like most foods. A lot. Vietnamese and pizza are at the top of the list.
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Plotting my great escape.
On a typical Friday night I am
Painting the town.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I spent most of my adolescence with a terrible bowl cut.
