My self-summary
Hello friend-o. I'm a little weird. But I make up for it by being funny, creative, hard-working, and a riot of interesting wordery.

I'm half Italian, grew up in the Arabian Gulf, and have lived in Portland for over 16 years. So, while this feels like home I miss the occasional pop culture reference.

I'm equally comfortable in the outdoors as well as the indoors. I enjoy a healthy balance of both. I can casual it up and I also clean up nice. I'm definitely a fan of fancy-ass food (be careful where you put the hyphen—fancy ass-food is a no-no) and I appreciate a well crafted bev'rage.
What I’m doing with my life
Let's get work out of the way: I work for a company that makes interactive experiences for museums and cultural institutions. I tippity-type on the computer, rub my chin thoughtfully while coming up with (hopefully) ingenious solutions to intractable problems, and manage the technical aspects of various projects.

I'm a musician. I play the guitar and sing. I'm a little across the board when it comes to genres. Here are a few songs I recorded with some friends: https://soundcloud.com/crashparlor

These are some things I want to do at some point in my life, in no particular order:
* Travel well
* Eat all the things
* Write a novel
* Perform stand-up comedy, in some capacity
* Have one of my songs played on the radio (more than one station, perhaps)
* Make a short film
* Make great art
* Have a great romance
* Run a marathon
* Have a book of poetry published
I’m really good at
Making up little ditties. You can give me a few words or a sentence and I can make a song out of it.

I can usually say something funny about just about anything.

Overanalyzing anything.

Not taking things too seriously.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have no idea, to be honest. I will ask people and get back to this.

The six things I could never do without
Friends and Family
Intimacy
Doggie
Making Music
Humor
Six-item lists.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
All the things I want to do that are cramming against each other preventing me from doing all the things I want to do.

Also, why does a little pencil icon mean I want to edit a text field on my computer? Do all graphic elements have to refer to a previous analogous technology?
On a typical Friday night I am
Out grabbing a drink with some friends, or watching a movie at home, chillin' with the dog.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't watch shows like The Office and Seinfeld because I get embarrassed for the characters.
You should message me if
You are smart, funny, attractive, and have your proverbial shit together.
